I have a pot of vegetable beef soup going. Maybe I will bake a loaf of bread to go with it.

Since our carpets are being cleaned and we have not where to sit, or move for that matter, I am really hoping to talk DH into going out. Even the kitchen is filled with furniture and boxes! At this point I don't care if it is Mickey D's!

I saw those pans in a catalogue. The crust being harder was my thought too! However being the cooking accessories collector that I am, if I had the money I would already have one. I bet it is useful for any number of other dishes also.

I'm bone tired and have no idea what to do for tonight's meal. May have a plate of ribs leftover from last night. After I made last night's meal there was enough left to prepare 5 full plates for the freezer.

DH has a beer-can chicken on the grill and I'm going to make baked potatoes and a salad.

Probably some leftover one pot lazy golumpki if I feel hungry later.
BK for a late lunch, which wasn't terrible (that mushroom swiss steakhouse thingy), and then a new land speed record mowing my lawn afterward.... Let's just say I'm not hungry yet.

Hiya Sattie!!!

Since Lou came last night, and we did the obligatory tapas then, I'm treating tonight like it's Saturday...that plus we have NYC plans for a party tomorrow night, so no dinner here..

First course is artichokes stuffed with panko, garlic, cheese, lemon zest, parsley S&P.

We're drinking Sazeracs, mm mm good.

Dinner: Osso buco with lemon parsley gremolata served with butternut squash ravioli and sauteed spinach. I made a loaf of of rosemary bread to go with dinner.

Amarone!!!!!! with dinner

Dessert is individual bread pudding of white chocolate and brandy soaked pears.

ended up throwing some sliced onion and assorted bell peppers into crock pot. seasoned chop with grill mate for chicken and browned them in skillet. put on top vegs. mixed a large can chopped tomatoes, with some tomato puree and a bit of water, seasoned with italian seasoning. so will see what i end up with. maybe with rice as a side. smells good.
