Feeling like I needed something "fancy" to boost my spirits and keep me on track.

Grilled romaine, cold quinoa salad on sliced fresh mozzarella and Costco chicken. (Because a girl only has so much energy.)

I had picked up some instant quinoa that microwaved in it's pouch long ago and it was nasty. I doubt I would have tried it again if they hadn't had a cold salad when I took my husband out for father's day. It was delicious so I decided to give it another go. It doesn't burn nearly so easily as rice. :lol:

yes, ma'am - i was born & raised in new jersey, so, i KNOW what you're talking about - hard to get things to grow in such a short growing season!

....and our season here is far shorter than New Jersey as we are far north of you. At least we have very long summer days! :D

I'm trying for tacos tonight.
Don't know how this will work, I'm used to traditional foods...not tacos. Wish me luck.

Tonight I finished off my quinoa salad with a burger on an arepa. Since Velveeta is one of the few cheeses I can eat now that's what I topped my burger with.

What's your recipe for split pea soup? Do you get dry peas? And do you think turkey bacon would be a sufficient sub for ham? Maybe brined chicken?


Turkey bacon would be ok. The soup that Irish have may call for ham and is provably very, very delicious, but it can be done with bacon. The soup will taste like bacon and who likes bacon will like the soup too. I will cut bacon on tiny slices, and roast it without oil. When the bacon is nice and crispy, I will mix bacon and dripping from it into soup- as the last ingredients because I like to preserve crispiness of bacon.
I never made split pea soup, or sauce with ham (nobody does in my family). I'm using dry peas because peas from can is very sweet. I tried to make the soup once from canned peas, but nobody liked it.

I'm going to throw my Costco chicken carcass on the stove this afternoon and turn it into chicken rice soup for supper. I'm completely off store bought stock and bouillon so for the first time the pressure is on to get the broth just right. (I've done it before but never under pressure.) I'll probably have more grilled lettuce with it instead of a regular salad.
