This morning I browned some ground beef with salt, melange of peppers, onion powder, and tomato/olive pesto. I plan to use it with noodles or some form of pasta for supper. I will either use it as a topping on top of the noodles or mix it in with the pasta.

Okay, I'm supposed to be on my way to bed and now you've made me all hungry. Sounds fantastic!

we are having two dinners today

the boys are expected back mid afternoon from their motorcycle rally in TN, at which time we will have some corn chowder, garlic bread and chocolate ice cream with roasted pecans...


then a few hours later, we will be sitting around a campfire roasting hot dogs and potatoes

my older girl want mac and cheese with tuna. so i got the family size blue box 4 cheese dinner. i am going to heat and melt the cheese pouch with canned drained mushrooms, a can of cream of mushroom soup (no water or milk added unless needed to thin a bit), a bit of sour cream and some fresh grated white vermont cheddar and a bit of fresh chopped parsley. then cook the pasta and add some sweet baby peas in the last minute of cooking. drain and add to the cheese mixture and stir, then add a can of solid white albacore in water (drained and flaked) and stir.

I could actually have that... 'cept I don't have any mushrooms, but that's okay. Mark doesn't like them. Do you bake your dish in the oven at all?

The only thing is I still have filling leftover from the peppers last night. I'm not sure what to do, since I was thinking chicken also.

no i don't bake it as no one likes the tuna cooked but you can top with bread crumbs seasoned with salt, black pepper, ground hot pepper flakes and a bit of grated cheddar, rom and parm cheeses and bake.

if you want the mac and cheese tonight you can freeze pepper filling as is (which would be nice added to a beef soup) or add tomato sauce for later use served over pasta. if chicken is thawed you can always poach it for later use save the cooking broth for later use also.

Rescued Roast!
I managed to produce a rather dry beef roast last night.
However, when shredded down and mixed in with pan drippings and mushroom
gravy, it became really good.

So tonight, said rescued roast is going into a PASTY. Or my version...
Gonna get some ready made dough, add the meat, some taters and onions,
bit of cheese, fold the dough over and bake.
Will serve with a nice salad and a Black and Tan beer.

I asked Mark what he wanted....

So, it's stuffed peppers again with roasted potatoes.

Sounds delish, Andy!

Just Dad and I and the heat again so I think it will be cold plate featuring macaroni salad (instead of potato this time), cold roast beef and Italian salami, green salad and fresh fruit.

We're having leftover roast beef from last night. I'm sauteeing some onions and peppers to serve with it over grits cakes. There are green beans leftover as well, but I finished off the soup for lunch. We'll have a salad tonight instead.

I was going to have tortellini mixed with pesto, salami, and Gorgonzola cheese, but it was too hot to cook tonight. So, I had Top Ramen instead. Sheesh!! It was not that appetizing, but at least it got me out of the kitchen quickly.

Your original choice sounds amazing!

Thanks, Laurie. I am going to make it tomorrow night. I was in Trader Joe's yesterday and they had it as a sample. So, I bought all the ingredients to make it. Hopefully, tomorrow won't be too hot to cook in the kitchen.
