Grilled corn on the cob with lemon chive butter

Herbed roast baby potatoes with crisp capers

Japanese cucumber salad (fresh cukes)

Grilled Cumberland sausages

Fudge brownies

Sounds delicious! What did you use to make the brownies? Can you make them without things like guar gum or xantham gum?

I'm very personality disorder about surprises. I love them, but I hate them. It could be because of my complete lack of patience I suppose. I'll have to refrain from bouncing around the house waiting and stick with watching too much tv and doing a few dishes as my stupid back permits.

 

Just keep reminding yourself that you won't do well in prison and it will get you through with the neighbors until you leave. :lol: Hope you survive your ordeal far better than I survived mine. Good luck! :wub:

 

I should be living with someone else for dinner. Tonight though I'm finally getting real cooked food again. I'm making my husband help me cook some pork chops, I'll probably just fry them because its easy and quick. And he brought me a honeydew I can make him cut up for me. And I sort of got him hooked on Grey's Anatomy now. *snicker*

 

mmmm pork chops.....i. am. so. hungry.

the thinger is this morning. whoohoo!

do not fear surprises from me. Have I let you down yet?  ^_^

too tired to make caps or check grammar (yes, i feel that wiped out even I do not care about it) ok that parenthesis thinger was instinctual

 

this afternoon, I will be happy to eat. I do not know how people purposefully fast. I need protein to feel well.

anyhoo

 

The hubs has promised burgers and sweet potato fries this evening if i want them

I want

I want

thanks for the  :wub: and right back atcha

if i snap before i move, they will never find the bodies, so i will never be convicted

i know people

I don't know how people fast on purpose either. I mean, I usually wait an hour or two after I get up in the morning before breakfast but once I decide I'm hungry I need to eat.

And I don't fear surprises, I just hate the waiting part. :P

 

I don't know whats for supper yet. I'm sure I'll figure it out before I starve though. Maybe just burgers because I didn't thaw anything. Oops. :ph34r: I suppose I should get some chicken out for tomorrow.

I have found that staring at the package of meat only cooks it minimally. 

You may have to do something more to it, babes.

In the olden days (back when we rode dinosaurs to work) when hubs was out of town, I ate stoopid stuff.

The gourmet in me was not interested in cooking for 1, so I ate things like chip and dip, peanut butter and banana on toast,

and one time, I just ate cantaloupe with vanilla ice cream.

 

I could  theoretically eat any one of those right now, but my GI tract feels like NASCAR

came through, so maybe just the plain ice cream. the burger I thought I wanted....well, hubs had two burgers.

 

& thanks for making me laugh because nothing is funny right now (but that was!).big ole spider...dis is MAH hows"

Herbed chicken thighs with marinated baby potatoes, carrots and marinated baby tomatoes all roasted together in one pan with a sublime white wine tarragon sauce. In town cooking for the next few days. Am making apple crisp using our apples and perhaps some focaccia if I have enough gumption.

For the record, and emg isn't nearly as bad as I thought. It is worse. Way, way, way worse. It involved more needles in my back which I swear felt like he stabbed me in the kidney. Then, just to insult me he stabbed me in the ass. <_< I promptly put my pants back on, made a beeline for the exit and took my wounded pride (and ass) to Sweet Cakes since I was in the city. Cupcakes make the world go round.

 

Chicken something is for supper. Not sure yet what but it'll come to me. I have 8 hours to figure it out and have it ready. I'd come live with L2 if you didn't live up in a frozen wasteland like 9 months a year or something like that. :P

Just so everyone knows, even if 3 out of 5 cupcakes you buy are mini cupcakes... if you eat 4 cupcakes while wallowing in self pity you will have a terrible stomach ache that almost makes you regret it. Almost, but not quite. :D

I feel like a human freaking being today! :D Sore and tender all over my leg and lower back but after the last week I'll take it. Sore and tender trumps actual pain every day of the week.

 

Tonight is BBQ pork loin, garlic tater wedges and a salad. Later tonight is the late late late show at the second run theater. Heading out to finally go see Lone Ranger. My daughter says its awesome, but she may be biased by her crush on Johnny. Although I think I sort of grossed her out when I told her his age (which is almost old enough to be MY father if he had become a parent at the age I did) and that I've had a crush on him since I was younger than her. :lol: Sometimes being a parent is hilariously fun in a really twisted way that involves warping young minds.

Hahaha! I'm real people too. I didn't even really have to cook. I cut a few potatoes, sprayed them with olive oil and salted them. The loin was one of those oven perfect ones that you cook right in the bag it comes in. Salad from a bag. BAM! I'm with you. That's how us "real" people do dinner.

I absolutely love looking in here looking at what everyone cooked!! I do have to say, after becoming gluten free I was afraid to know what to do during this change over. 1st I cooked something glutenized for hubbs and cooked me something eles, It was hard!! I was used to tasting and using the same spoon and so so CC myself!! It was so hard to get used to... Then I decided to switch what ever I could to Gluten free .. Cream of mush soup, Noodles, other stuff like that. It makes it so much easier!! once in a while Hubbs will say he wants something like Glutened Mac and cheese or something silly like that! And I will cook it for him. But I am Telling you I am amazed at what you women cook !! You all are amazing!! Thanks so very much!! You all are inspiring!! :)
