Start saving, girl! I will, too!

yo!....LOVE 2!! how long before it snows again, sweetie??

Dinner tonight was:

the "encore" of stuffed peppers (I never say leftovers)

hubs said "delicious-o" and "you can make this again anytime, babe"...

Is he the best "audience" or what?

We have leftovers in my house too. I roasted 2 scallions and 3 chopped mushrooms in olive oil. I cooked NOTTA pasta- rice linguine. 3 minutes before the pasta was done I added 1 cup broccoli, 1 cup spinach and 1/2 cup frozen peas. I took everything out and mixed up with scallions and mushrooms. I added more cold olive oil and sprinkled generously with salt. Now I'm cooking 2 leftover- grilled and sliced chicken breasts in spaghetti sauce. It will cover my son - vegetarian (he can eat it with parmesan cheese) and my husband - meat eater (I will put meat sauce on top of pasta for him). Dinner served!!:) :)

If you start now, you can pick up Sylvia, and then, me in NY and we could be there in a few hours (I KNOW where she is....) ;)

....grabbing bag and keys now..... B)

If you make the effort to come, the least I can do is make dessert with those cherries. Maybe Cherries Jubilee or Cherry Clafoutis would work. See you in two hours! :D

drool :rolleyes:

Oh, what a chore, to HAVE to use up fresh sheep's cheese :rolleyes:

Gawd yes! I could live on the stuff! :D

I have a question for you guys.

I have not ate red meat since 2009. I would like to add it in somehow to give me more dinner options, especially since it seems to be the goldmine when it comes to nutrients.

Any suggestions as to how I should do that? I'd love a taco salad right now made out of something other than turkey meat. Thanks!

I was off of red meat for a long time before I reincorporated it into my diet. (my sensitivities left me with not much else in the line of protein)

I second the idea of ground beef in your recipe instead of ground turkey but start with a lower fat content to start. I found that starting with leaner cuts of red meats helped me digest it easier. Laura's Ground Beef is really good and found at a lot of regular grocery stores.

We had elk tacos...very good and fast. Elk is very lean, I never have to drain or blot and ours never tastes wild like deer does.

Too hot here for heavy food, so......Caesar salad with spiced shrimp, with homemade croutons. Oh, and cheese/garlic biscuits.

And I would love to find Sheep's Cheese. I will keep a look out when we venture to the big city. B)

Tomorrow, dinner out.

Oh, yum. Elk is incredibly delicious, isn't it? As my dad was a big-game hunter, I was practically raised on elk and moose.

I can shovel.

She awakes!!

Holymotherofpearl, Bunz....where you been girl? I surely missed ya! :wub:

and the "shovel" is in reference to?

shoveling ice? snow? elk poo? .....BS??

Dinner tonight:

I made "Pulled pork".

It's all you guys' fault--you made me open the box with the slow cooker in it.

Side note: I have never made this BBQ delight EVER.

But I am expanding my horizons.

(okay, now this pulled pork thing ....is something I have always found to be slightly funny and almost "dirty sounding"...and in any event, I put it on a squishy roll, served Potato salad with dill and cole slaw on the side and hubs loved it :lol: )

Oh my gosh, I love making pulled pork. It is so delightfully yummy! I have a local pizza shop that brews their own root beer in the basement. I use that root beer to cook the pork in and it is just divine. Aren't you glad you opened that box?

This is the last week that I increased my dose of topamax so I'm still adjusting and super tired, which was fine by me. I slept all afternoon with an ice pack on my face, it was wonderful even if it meant I didn't make any plans for supper. We grilled some burgers and deep fried some fries. We've actually be using the deep fryer quite a bit since hubs went gluten free. I'm indulging him while he adjusts. I might even suck up the cost and suggest we actually buy a gluten free pizza next week. :ph34r:

You guys said we couldn't go to Sylvia's unless we shoveled! I assume that mens snow. :)

You can do 'pulled pork' with chicken, too! I ruined some chicken one day, got way too frikkin dry. So I shredded it and put it in a pot with barbecue sauce, worked great!

Sorry I disappeareded, been CRAZY busy!

Glad you're back!xxoo

Yes!! :)

The recipe I used did not have root beer in it, but I'll try that one next.

Yes - we have snow in Canada for 6-7 months. And not just a wee bit, either. So, whomever is willing to shovel, I'll do the cooking! Maybe you can get some decent seat sales. :P
