Hi Barb, thanks for getting this started.

Just pulled a pork roast bought yesterday, out of the freezer and tossed it in the Crock Pot. I bathed it in Santa Paula's famous Steak seasoning and white wine plus some apple pie spice. Bakers'll bake off later in the oven and thrice medley of summer/zukes/acorn squash all sauteed in butter.

I do need a suggestion for dessert. Anyone have a newish take on a cake or pie I could borrow? help

I"m marinading some steak tips in a Lawry's marinade. Tonight we'll grill these up.

I haven't 100% decided on the sides yet.
I might make some of BBQ Mickey's cole slaw and cook up enough spagetti pasta for two.

I'm thinking about heating up some olive oil butter and throwing in some percuitto, spices and milk...... to pour over the pasta.

Hot here again today, so we're having a cold kielbasa summer salad with blackeyed peas, green peppers, green onions, etc. I should make a baguette to have with it but the idea of heating the kitchen up doesn't appeal to me. I may have some rolls in the freezer. If so, we'll have those with the salad and maybe some roasted garlic spread on.

Ive got 8 slices of steak in the caserole dish with beer, onions, gound Bay, black pepper and salt, and that`s been cooking on low for over 6 hours now.

I`ll be doing coarsely mashed potatos with it.

Smile Hamburgers!!

This morning I made a potato salad to take over to my parent's house for dinner tonight. With the potato salad we had hamburgers, baked beans, and some cut-up carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower.
