It's definitely going to be the Fried Cabbage recipe that Kades posted. Along side that I'm not sure. I still have to see what's lurking in my freezer.

there is a big to-do in the neighborhood today....dh and I are friends with the drummer in the band, Truth & Salvage Co. and his parents are our neighbors. The band is putting on a free concert on his folks front porch, old farmhouse with a long and wide front porch. Here is a link to the bands website..
Truth And Salvage Co.
and an article about the concert played over the weekend
Concert Review: Truth & Salvage Co. at Birdy's | Music Blog | NUVO Newsweekly | Indianapolis, IN

the concert starts at 6:00 pm. we have 22+ friends coming to hear the band....the mother has requested no loud music and no alcohol at the event. The band has hired a sound system

most of our friends are coming early to see our home improvements, will be a busy day

what I am planning is a pot luck at my house when the band takes its first break for food and beverages of choice

I am fixing chicken salad and ham and cheese sandwiches, deviled eggs and chocolate cookies

should be quite a day

Ours will be minimal - maybe a green salad with cheese and crackers. We had a good size lunch at the Seafood place. I had bell pepper stuffed crab and dh had grouper so with the trimmings I'm good for quite a while. Must keep moving to prevent a nap coming on.

I do not have a clue. Could quite possibly be a "clean out the fridge" night but I have been away so much lately I don't even know what is in there!

Thanks to all who sent "condolences" on my hockey team's humiliating demise last night. It will take some time to get over it





Okay, I am over it!

I've got some chicken wings thawing, don't know if I'm going to fry or bake. Absolutely no ideas about the sides. I guess it really depends how I decide to fix the wings.

It's "clean out the fridge" night at our house. Roast beef hash is one of the things we'll be having.

Had a fabulous stirfry tonight using Trader Joe's "Black Pepper Sauce" mixed with some dry sherry, & added to diced red bell pepper, shredded poached chicken, quartered fresh shitake mushrooms, whole snow peas, whole baby corn, & several handfuls of spicy baby greens from the farmers market. Served on a bed of brown rice. Very spicy & absolutely delicious!!!

We ended up having French toast and sausages. Not very original, but it was good.

We kind of had burritos. Ground beef/bean/cheese, but instead of rolling them, I spread and sprinkled the toppings over a flour tortilla, then topped it all with another flour tortilla. I mostly did them that way because I'm lazy but since they still taste the same, and no one was here to look a them, who cares? LOL
