Oh, but I love a big plate of NOODLES!  That looks mighty tasty, Imelda.

*************

I grilled a couple burger patties and since I wanted potato 'crowns', I left off the buns ~ not exactly an even exchange, but better than having both.  I switched out lima beans for edamame in some succotash.  You would have thought I drove a wooden stake through Mr. Amazing's chest (he's been watching Dracula movies all afternoon so that's where that analogy came from ~ LOL).  He told me at least three times that he LIKES lima beans and DOES NOT LIKE edamame.  ((sigh))  Too bad.  Eat it or leave it, makes no difference to me.  He must have been hungry because he ended up having a second helping.....Hahahahahaha!

Oh Boy! KK near home. 3 Miles a day, for your daily KK.
Happy Dance. I walked 2.5 miles a day to school, and just about every day, I stopped at the KK bakery, and grabbed 2 glazed and a small coffee. Had that as I walked the last two blocks to the school. 2 doughnuts plus a small coffee was like 52 cents in 1959.

Some pics.... Tina made doughnuts with her Sunbeam cake doughnut maker.

The doughnuts are little, but we eat them like candy.
Tina likes granulated sugar on them. I like them plain...

If given the choice to choose between the noodles and sauce and the whole plate of donuts, I'd pick the noodles for sure! But that donut maker is cute as it can be! I'd probably be shakin' those cuties in a bag of powdered sugar (outside for the shaking so I didn't end up with sugar all over the kitchen).

I just finished a little lemon scone with my first cup of coffee.

After we closed our restaurant in Junction City, a lady hired our cook who was trained by my mother in law and opened a restaurant that is still there today. One recipe that she added that we didn't have was one for sticky and crispy chicken wings. Charlie loves that and has one of his own that is close but it's very long and complicated. A friend posted a recipe that looks close but is baked instead of fried and the sauce is a lot easier. We tried it today and it is a close second to Charlies, but it is so much easier that I will probably make a regular.

Goodness, Norm, but those wings look fabulous.....I sure wish the price would go down on the silly things. It kills me to pay over $3/lb. for bones ~ although, when I'm just buyin' for the two of us I somehow say it's OK.

Barb, your soup looks great....almost like a chicken noodle stew. I'm a big fan of thick soups (like when the homemade noodles thicken the broth and you can eat it with a fork) but Dane's a 'SOUP' lover. He wants lots of stock and meat and just a few noodles.

We went to Palatka for his sister's early 4th of July cookout. I ended up making the peach crisp ~ turned out OK but it would have been a lot better if I had taken ice cream to scoop with it. But, ice cream always makes such a mess when you're doing a pot luck meal and the people come in at different times. It was just about gone before we left so I'd say no one really minded the lack of ice cream.

I also made a small dish for our neighbors. Tommy & JoAnn love their sweets but she hates cooking anymore. She'll make some meals but just doesn't want to start up the oven. But, hey, she's almost 82 years old ~ she's entitled to say, "Whoa, I don't wanna do this any more!"

Joe and Katie are at the beach. I stayed home and went to 3 grocery stores to get what I needed. Came home and took a nap. I made this recipe that has a chocolate chip cookie base. a caramel layer then another chocolate layer. Talk about ooey gooey. Kinda good though. I am chomping on a chunk while watching a vintage 1970 concert on PBS with the Rolling Stones. Mick looks so young. I would like to have seen them again before I leave this earth but the concert they are having with Bob Dillon out in Indio is only for the rich. Tickets started at $600. I am sure I would pass out from the heat anyway. I am too old for outdoor concerts in the desert in October. Robert plant is going to be out here in October in L.A. but the tickets start at $200 and are too rich for my blood.

Everyones meals look / sound wonderful.

It was cool here today, like a high of 66. Breezy.
Tina said, "this is a Beef Barley soup day!" .... and so it was. She made a big pot.

Had delicious Strawberry rhubarb pie from Donaldsons Farm stand up the street a bit.
I ate two slices.

Joe thought the chocolate chip/caramel bars were swill. He can't stand gooey. Katie doesn't like dark chocolate so she picked the caramel out of the middle. I can see this one going into the trash.
