Good luck with the carnival food, luvs. I stay away from that stuff that sits out all day, because it usually keeps me up all night...if you know what I mean.:whistling:

Oh Aubrey.
Sorry to hear you're not feeling well.
My dinner at worked sucked, it was a chicken casserole.
Yup. Chicken, noodles and peas with a poor excuse for a salad.
Lettuce and french dressing??
Hmmm.. that's a salad?

I should have gone out for something.
Like across the road to Taco Hell..
Thats not a salad! LOL I needa make you a salad!!


We took drive into PA. Stopped at a Long John Silver in Scranton for lunch - I just got chicken planks (sans the pups and fries) and pink lemonade LOL - go to a fish joint and get chicken. I love the chicken!! We were treated to an AMAZING show by Mother Nature in 2 states including wonderful lightning streaks of white and pink, huge hail and lots of rain! No rainbow but BEAUTIFUL sun shafts streaming through puffy clouds between deluges of rain and hail. We took refuge at a Cracker Barrel in NJ when the rain and hail got heavy. I had tomato juice w/ lemon, ice water, coffee and a small side of grits w / butter to settle my tummy. Got a chef salad to go for dinner.

I pulled out a small rolled pork roast that I tied up from pork shoulder, but decided against roasting it. Instead, I trimmed and cubed the meat, tossed it in seasoned flour, then fried it in cast iron in chicken schmaltz until the meat was cooked through and slightly caramelized. Removed the meat then added a little more schmaltz to the pan and caramelized the mire poix and diced potatoes. Tossed the meat back in and added 2 cups of chicken stock with a couple tablespoons of flour to thicken the broth. A little sea salt & fresh ground pepper to adjust the flavor, and allowed it to simmer for about 20 minutes. Cooked up some egg noodles and fresh sweet corn for a veggie, and called it dinner! It was delicious, especially the cubed pork shoulder. There, doesn't that sound better than pork stew over noodles? http://netcookingtalk.com/forums/images/smilies/g1/yum.gif

Longhorn Steakhouse - strip steak, baked w/sour cream and butter, asparagus w/ butter and parm shavings, salad w/blue cheese dressing (took 1/2 of everything but the salad home), shared molten lava cake w/vanilla ice cream w/ the girls and hub. Had ice water and unsweet tea w/pomegranate syrup to drink.

Had a hot dog, made Joe's potato salad (http://netcookingtalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21733&highlight=potato+salad)(WOW!!) it was a hit!! :D
My BIL and nephew grilled burgers and dogs, had baked beans, chips, cake and vanilla wafer banana pudding.
Watched a little of the fireworks as they started from where we were, but then came home when it started to rain and heard there were storms in the area.
It was really too hot to enjoy staying very long, but the time spent was good, with good food.

I made a pilot run of Buttery Garlic Knots that I saw on TV the other day. (http://www.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/kelsey-nixon/buttery-garlic-herb-knots-recipe/index.html) I'll be taking these to a party tomorrow evening, with a "to be determined" side dish. http://food.sndimg.com/bb/smilies/icon_lol.gif Here are the knots fresh from the oven, and then plated with some homemade Sopresotta dried sausage the I made in the Winter. This turned out to be a great snack combination. Gonna have to remember to do this again.

Oh, I had sweet and sour chicken. Asked for fried rice on the side, but Ting's son has a way of being distracted when he takes phone orders, so I got plain white rice with it (not checking the bag first)--
Thank God for the sweet and sour sauce container.. I dumped it on the rice for flavour lol

After working all day in the oppressive heat (it hit 100F here today), I decided we should have something light for dinner. I grilled some chicken tenders in the ribbed cast iron pan, and DW chopped some fresh romain, tomatoes, cukes, carrots and red onion. Topped it with some sliced almonds and Marzetti's sweet & sour dressing.

After a nice savory dinner, I was looking for something sweet. Passing the counter I noticed that teh bananas had reached their peak, and if not eaten soon they would become banana bread. So, I grabbed a banana, the Moose Tracks ice cream from the freezer, some chocolate syrup, whipped cream, maraschino cherries and a Kit-Kat candy bar. The rest is history...big smile on the face history. :lol:

One for me, one for Gretch and two for tomorrow.

1# Hillshire Polska kielbasa, onions, mixed peppers, broccoli and new potatoes. This is a one-pan meal. Literally, you cut everything up, throw it in the pan and simmer it for 20 minutes with the cover on the pan. No oil or liquid is needed, as the fat from the sausage and moisture in the veggies provide all the necessary liquid. Stir once or twice and plate it. Bread & butter with a tossed salad finishes the meal.

i'll take it! ummmm. i used to dislike steak as 1.)my Dad made it like twice a week 2.)i took my steak cooked through & it was always dry & chewy.
my Dad made his just cooked. one day i took a few pcs. he cut from his & liked it. then i graduated thru stages until i only like most meats cooked like that (unless in a stew, etc.). pork, cooked med.-med,-well, poultry, thoruoghly cooked.
the juicy, tender, deliciousness is lovely.
muley, ur as almost as fussy as blake.

to each thier own!

As fat as that omelet is I know you stuffed a bunch of cheese in there. Made stir fry veggies again but this time I cut up two boneless chicken breasts and cooked them first. Then chunked up some fresh pineapple and some of the cheddar cauiflower. Filled the deep skillet and tasted great. Have more than enough for tomorrow as well.:clap:

Stir fry is one of those meals that you can put just about anything into, and you get a lot of mileage out of it, especially when coupled with rice.

I don't like the cheese sauce they use either hun.
When I get a roast beef there, I get it plain and ask for Horsey or Arby sauce on the side.
Tried their French Dip once too.
OMG.. that au jus sent my stomach into a freaking mess.:hammer:

Hope you feel better now.:flowers:

I decided not to order a pizza, because I'd never eat it all.
So I went to a place called Suever's and got the half french bread pizza with Italian sausage, peppers and onions.
Couldn't help myself.. had to get the Big Twisty too (that'll be a snack later)..
Asked them not to salt it, but they did.:hammer::yum:

Celebrating DD's birthday today (it was 8-9 but they were busy) and making chicken kebobs (chicken has marinated in Italian dressing since yesterday), baked sweet potatoes, corn on the cob and salad. DW made a chocolate cake from scratch and will frost it with mock whipped cream frosting, the one you make with flour & milk and cool overnight in the fridge. We all love that frosting.

We had two outdoor parties yesterday, so we didn't have to cook for ourselves. Next Saturday we have to make dinner for 25 folks at a fundraiser in the neighborhood, so I made my sauce and meatballs yesterday and froze it for the event. We are working the festival at the church DW works at next Friday and Sunday, so it will be nice to not have to cook all day before the event.

I had a bunch of pork shoulder steaks I got on sale on Friday, so I trimmed them before packaging, and made some lard for a treat down the road. Ended up with the world's tastiest treat...cracklings! I was snacking on them all day.
