We had rice macaroni and tomatoes.

This reminds me of my childhood, my Mother would make this a lot!

My mom did too! I never really liked it much as a kid but I had a craving and just happened to have the rice macaroni and canned tomatoes. :)

Chicken Spring rolls. maybe some Avocado soup if I can get myself to the store. It's another sweltering hot day here in the South!

How do you make your avocado soup? I can't seem to get enough of them lately and this sounds yum! I cannot seem to find any rice paper for spring rolls in my area : (

I actually have never made it. I have had some at my SIL's house and liked it though. Here's the recipe I was going to try: http://reciperenovator.com/special-diets/vegan/healthy-recipes-gluten-free-cucumber-avocado-soup/

I ended up just making the spring rolls and they were plenty to eat. Do you have an Asian or international food store? That's where I find my rice paper wrappers. They have a ton of different sizes and shapes. Some are just made of rice, some are rice and tapioca flour. The ones with tapioca flour tend to be less fragile I have noticed. I can't taste the difference at all.

Thank you!! I don't have an asian store near, but will search for one!

Since there are some bacon fans here, has anyone tried brushing bacon with something sweet such as maple syrup and roasting in the oven? Lovely - sort of like bacon candy. Also good sprinkled with black pepper and pomegranate molasses.

Last night we had the best pork ribs ever. I stopped by a Latin produce store and they had smoked, dried poblano peppers. I picked up four for 50 cents.

I just happened to have pork ribs simmering in the crock pot with NE Carolina vinegar sauce, and stuck one of those dried peppers in there. We finished the ribs off on the grill.

Ribs with sauerkraut and Wickles pickles and salad. I have a new love...smoked, dried peppers. (Sorry everyone with nightshade intolerances, for some reason I have a lot of food issues, but I can still do nightshades.)

Tonight wasn't that great. Overcooked grilled marinated skirt steak. But the taters were good, and so was my weird salad (romaine lettuce, sliced peach, sliced greek olives and citrus viniagrette.

I never would have thought to try that :huh:

I do love maple syrup on my pork sausage so it sounds like something I would enjoy :D

I am a chili pepper FANATIC. Whenever friends travel to the US or Mexico they know without asking to bring back whatever they can find. It is almost like a collection! Some of my favourites are mulato, chipotle (dried jalapeno), ancho (dried poblano), cascabel, guajillo, aleppo... I toast them on dry heat, grind in my M&P or grinder and use in rubs, seasoning blends, chili pastes and so on. If our climate was better I would grow tons and tons but alas...Zone 1a is not exactly conducive to pepper production! :lol:

Have you tried the hottest pepper on the planet, the esteemed Bhut Jolokia or Ghost Pepper? Almost nearly impossible to find (I haven't yet but don't know whether I would want to - I love heat but I love to taste my food!).

Just as a matter of interest, how BIG is your pantry? :lol:

An entire room lined with shelves plus shelves downstairs. At any given time I probably have at least 50 different kinds of interesting condiments and preserves (I make most), 85 spices, truffle paste, lots of vanilla beans, etc. I often open my pantry just to look and I am not kidding. It is like an international specialty food store! People actually have come over to ogle. :lol:
