We got gypped outta the Super Moon -- we have a thick marine layer at night that clears about 10am each morning -- commonly referred to as "June Gloom" -- so I set my alarm for 430am hoping the view would improve whilst I slept -- no luck...just one bright marine layer :(

 

Not sure what is for dinner....something easy -- maybe spaghetti and meatballs.  Oh and vanilla cake (made spares yesterday) with strawberry frosting (left over from sis's bday)  -- so I guess that makes it Encore Cake ;)

How was the graduation?  Congratulations!  :)   Did you have a restful day today?

 

Reminder:  Make the peach dessert thinger I mentioned up thread.  You really, really should.  :P

Welcome Myself!!!

 

I've never had the NP Raspberry -- I don't like my beer fruity -- except for an occasional lime in a Pacifico pre-celiac dx.  Oh my...someone needs to produce a gluten-free Mexican Beer!!!

 

Thanks for the welcome....

 

Yeah I agree.  I was kind of left with few options so I tried.  It was better than what I had expected but it didn't blow me away either.  The fruit flavoring was subtle though.

Thanks....I knew I'd forget...I did buy beautiful peaches on Friday....this must be why.

Graduation was awesome! Beautiful day with plenty of family and friends to help celibrate.

I am indeed resting a bit today....cuddling with the kidlets now....they are watching one episode of curious George .... then we read more books and a round of CandyLand....then perhaps one last splash session before we send them home!

We just heated up last night's leftovers tonight but I had a sudden urge to have cornbread. So I threw together some hot water cornbread really fast last minute and we both love it. Finally something he'll eat that isn't an animal!

Hubby wants chicken alfredo. It has been a long time since I've made it since it is something that I'm sure won't agree with me at this point. I'm not brave enough to go there, so I'm going to make myself some pasta with meatballs (homemade! :blink:) and some of that leftover Dave's butternut sauce I froze. I really wish there were meatballs I could buy, but I had to decide not to agree with soy. <_<

 

I'm going to keep telling myself I don't want chicken alfredo. I may eventually convince myself that its true.

haloumi....drooool  yum and lamb is my favorite thing and if you lived closer, I'd be barging through the door right now, just to smell your kitchen. 

 

 

I'm going to keep telling myself I don't want chicken alfredo. I may eventually convince myself that its true.

 

 

You may want chicken alfredo (hell, I want chicken alfredo!!) but you are not going to have it because you are avoiding aged cheese right now for a good cause. (I am helping, not nagging! :) :) )

I knew someone who once said " Yeah my grandkids are adorable, especially as they blow kisses and wave goodbye from the back window as they pull out of the driveway..."

 

You have had a Very, very, very busy few weeks, my friend....take the rest of the day off. :)

 

 

Grabbed a chicken on the way home (sounds like I did that with my bare hands)

and it's going in the counter top rotisserie with a nice olive oil baste of various herbs and

possibly some "couscous" made with brown rice and herbs....

because I need to take a serious break from the foods I ate all weekend with my guests.

Had too many HH foods and sweets .(I should not brag,  but my cream cheese buttercream frosting is just ridiculously good---you could

slather that stuff on dirt and it would taste good)

 

......all of which makes me tired and draggy, so I made myself go to the gym this morning as my reward!.

 

All I can say is.........OINK.

:D

Oink...oink...I'm there too -- but did get my beloved 'silver shadow' back on the road this morning -- been riding hubs hybrid for awhile now as my shoulders and wrists were not happy with my race bike -- and....wait for it...my problematic left shoulder is happy -- well not happy, but not in pain which with my fuzzy math today is the same thing ;)

 

No resting today....need to take care of things that got shuffled aside this past week during playtime and graduation celebration....somehow my busy day is much less work than the little ones.....fun for a visit -- and they show their uncles how much work being a parent of small children is....great birth control for young adults :D

My husband knows that I love him dearly to do things like make him some of my favorite foods that I don't dare touch. :wub: Not that I'll exactly be suffering with my dinner. :D

 

And I meant to freeze some of my cupcakes but they never made it to the freezer so I need to polish them off today. OINK myself!

Yay for your bike back! And I encouraged my daughters both to babysit children of varying ages, preferably multiple children at once. I told them I wanted them to earn money. I lied. I knew it would be awesome birth control. Evil moms strike again! :lol:

Post the meatball recipe please! I've been wanting some so bad.

 

Don't know how others make them...but I do it kinda like meatloaf -- ground beef, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, oregano, egg and bread crumbs...then roll into 1" balls and fry OR tonight I'm doing humongous meat balls...3" balls that I bake most of the way thru then finish them off in the fry pan just before serving.

Meatballs

 

Similar to Ski's....., except I use a combo of ground beef, ground pork & ground veal (ask the butcher at the store for "meatloaf mix" )

In addition to what she puts in hers,

I  add some grated parmesan and parsley  to my meatballs and I bake them on a tray for 20 minutes in the oven at 350.

Then, I add them to my sauce.

People use recipes for meatballs? :blink:

 

I always use beef, sometimes I add pork or veal or sausage or ground whatever to it too. As long as its meat. Add eggs, add breadcrumbs, add whatever seasonings in whatever amounts seem like a good idea at the time... I used to use copious amounts of parmesan but I suppose I can't do that anymore. I do have a teensy bit of ricotta in the fridge though and I suppose I'll probably add that. Garlic, always enough fresh garlic to keep an army of vampires at bay for a month.

 

Sometimes I roll fatties by hand, tonight I am using my teensy cookie scooper to make little meatballs. I'll just bake them til they look perfect. I'm making extras so I don't have to do this too terribly often.
