But Jimmy, and Beth,
a half a bottle of wine is only 2 glasses!!  or one, depending on the size of the glass!!!

Hahahahaha! Glad we all think alike! LOL

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

It was an absolutely beautiful day today....high in the high 70's and blue, sunny skies.

So I decided it should be a grilled supper. Pork steak w/Sweet Baby Ray's slathered on for me, s&p seasoned loin chops for Mr. Amazing ~ packet roasted cauliflower with a bit of evoo, s&p and red pepper flakes cooked until tender and just starting to caramalize in a non-stick foil packet, green beans w/sauteed mushrooms and a split sweet potato (pre-cooked in the microwave and finished on the top rack of the grill until tender). No complaints heard so far.....

My favorite is the same, Cyn, when I have the meal at our house. The next day my breakfast always consists of pumpkin pie with my coffee....and I savor every single tiny bite!

I'm not sure how it's going to be since we'll be cooking at Cheryle's and I'll have to pack up leftovers to bring home ~ plus sharing......but hopefully there will be plenty for all of us.

I made the pumpkin cheesecake today. Maybe the Challah bread in a day or two.

Dinner was cooked by Mrs. Swanson.
Hungry Man Salisbury Steak Dinners.
I was amazed and said "Wow, look at this, they put three burger Steaks in mine!"n....Tina was laughing, saying... "No,......... I gave you one from my dish!"
All I know, is I licked my platter clean!

Joe and Katie went to the Sawdust Festival's Winter Fantasy. No cooking. I did try and make Jimmy's Rice Krispie treats but it was a failure. How can you fail with RKT? This is how it happened. I bought a bag of grocery store brand marshmallows instead of Kraft brand. Too late did I discover that all bags of marshmallows are not created equal. The Kraft brand bag was 10 ounces. The grocery store brand was 16 ounces and they tasted like chit. Into the trash the mess went.

And good Gracious.... You should taste them with store brand faux rice krispies. Well the real krispies go Krack Snapple & Pop, and the store brand ones go Yack, Fart, and Chit. I cannot figure out why Tina and my DD buy the store brand marshmallows and krispies.

I agree about the Rice Krispie Treats....If the REAL Rice Krispies are too expensive, wait for a sale. You'll be able to use them before they get stale. The mini marshmallows are cheap enough on their own. Saving a few cents isn't worth it when you can't eat the treats.

Now you've learned a valuable lesson.

Lesson #2 ~ the already made, wrapped in celo at the store are NOT the same as homemade ones. Don't waste your money. (Don't even wonder how I KNOW this......)

I know. They are not the same. Very artificial vanilla tasting.

bethk wrote:Tonight I fixed what is now commonly referred to as a 'sheet pan' meal.  I covered a half sheet pan with heavy duty foil.  I pre-cooked a large sweet potato in the microwave for 4 minutes to get it cooked about half way and placed it on the sheet pan.  Then I added three skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs seasoned liberally with s&p and 75% of the sheet pan was covered with chunked up carrots, parsnips & onions, seasoned with a drizzle of evoo and a good sprinkle of s&p.  I put the pan into a 400° oven for about 45 minutes and then for the final 20 minutes or so hiked the temperature up to 500° so everything would get nice and browned.

Supper was a huge hit with Mr. Amazing.  There was plenty and nothing was on his 'do-not-eat' list.  Personally, I thought it was pretty darn good tasting!



The best part was at clean-up all I had to do was fold up the foil and toss it.  The mess was all contained and there are no pans to soak and scrub.

Beth, I'm so wanting to make this since I saw you posted it.. but we were working on our leftover so I postponed it, but thought of it often.. I thought I had a bag of chicken thighs in my freezer, last night I put them out and this morning I found out that my chicken is the cut up of a whole chicken, I was thinking to change my plan and cook them differently.. I had no idea what to do with them.. and I browsed around and found this http://www.food.com/recipe/roasted-cut-up-chicken-and-vegetables-292264?photo=184424  it's similar with what you did with your chicken.. so I'm going to go ahead and cook it with what I have in my pantry and fridge

My mom used to push stuffing between the skin and the breast. Somehow, that bird took longer to cook, and there was no crispy skin on the breast. No

Imelda....we like just about every vegetable roasted. I don't think you can go wrong ~ and all chicken pieces should work perfectly well. I just use a lot of chicken thighs because that's the dark meat we both like (and it's less expensive than the breast or mixed chicken parts).

Oh.. this is seriously good... I used Creole seasoning for my veggies and chicken.. plenty of leftover for tomorrow ( we'll be out for hiking, so we need some cooked foods to be heated when we get home late )
