Looks good Norm. Have you tried any of these new (well new to me) rices in the different colors, like pink and black (forbidden rice). They look really interesting and are supposed to have a nutty flavor. I have always liked Wild Pecan Rice because of he smell and flavor and thought that these might be a bit healthier for us.

I have pretty much stuck to the kind Koreans like which is Calrose medium grain rice. I have not even heard of the colored kind.. It sounds like they might be interesting.

PEACH PIE !!!    That looks SO good!

Actually, all the food looks and sounds like everyone had a filling end to a holiday weekend.

We had sauced baby back ribs, sweet corn, green beans, packet potatoes and the leftover cucumber salad. No one was complaining about being hungry when they waddled away from the table.

Norm, I'm glad you had an opportunity to try that method of pan frying the okra. I like her site and have gotten a lot of good ideas and hints there.

We just finished boiling macaroni and are adding a package of the Savory Meat Base and a jar of Classico fire-roasted pizza sauce for American-style Goulash.  I use the jars from the sauce for canning but they have changed the lids so that a canning ring doesn't fit them anymore.  So I bought every jar on shelves of the old style.  They are nicer than Ball jars IMO and they are what I use for pints.  Their marinara jars are what I use for quarts and they've changed the lids on those too.  I'll post the recipe for the Savory Meat Base in case anyone is interested.  It might be something for your DD to make, Beth -- easy and provides the meat for 3 different dishes.
If the stomach gets really bad, Tina will eat baby food. We carry a lot of that for her. The custard, she likes even when not in pain.
She sleeps in the recliner, and we have electric beds that can be raised foot and head. I cannot sleep flat myself. I get that acid reflux and a hiatal hernia that pops out once in a while.

all yummy meal pictures...

Today I was planning to cook fish Chinese style... steamed in ginger and green onion, but before I started doing it, I asked my DH, how he wanted his fish, bake, steam, deep fry or with chili sauce, he chose baked fish in chili sauce.. so change of plan... I baked my fishes ( striped bass), then poured my chili sauce on them, broiled for a few minutes.. I enjoyed eating mine, but I don't think he really  enjoyed it, because of the bones and skin.. he prefers steak fillet or steak Smile 



for him


mine.. fish head, my favorite

Imelda, he probably chose that style of fish because its YOUR favorite....and since you worked so hard all week on celebration foods he wanted to be nice and let you cook one of your favorite meals.

How sweet.

I'm not a huge fan of fish with bones, either. But yours looks well worth the time it would take me to pick through and remove the bones. Very nice!

that's him.. so sweet Wink  some times I have to tell him not to feel bad if he does not like the foods in his plates, eat as much as he wants or needs.. I won't be offended if he can't finish his foods, but better not to do it too often   Very Happy

The next few days will be "leftovers" days. I have got to clean the bits of this 'n that out of the refrigerator. I think supper is going to be something with a marinara sauce since there is a fair amount calling to be eaten.

I just want a sandwich for supper. A nice BLT of sorts would be good.
It cooled down here; so a little soup would be nice. I have "St" to do today; so it depends how long it takes. I wanted to cut the grass, but the ground is so wet, the tractor will rip up the lawn in the back on the inclines.

Tina wants to make chicken soup! Uggg!

Nice browned bird, Barb....

I reheated the lobster stew I made over the weekend. We had it for an appetizer. I browned some spinach/mozzarella chicken sausages on the grill and then let them simmer in some marinara and made a pot of thin spaghetti. Oh, and I made a tossed salad this afternoon so we had that as well.

Tonight I'm making sweet & sour pork...another recipe Mom called Chinese.....

Ain't nothing Chinese about this s&s pork recipe except the rice it's spooned over...and since its Uncle Ben's converted rice, even THAT isn't Chinese......

Boneless pork, sliced thin and cooked until tender in chicken broth, stir fried carrots, celery, onion & red sweet pepper with a can of pineapple tidbits and the broth thickened with pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy, cornstarch and cider vinegar.

But, hey, we all love it and I have a pic of an old one someplace......
