They make a meal with just about anything. We usually have them with salmon patties or pork burgers. Even great with German Sausages.
We eat it all with apple sauce.

Everyone's food looks marvelous and we've been eating up leftovers from the weekend and had some chicken cordon bleu that I bought fresh from the meat case at Meijer. I have a few jars of cookie butter I need to use up so I found a recipe online that includes 1/2 cup in a pumpkin pie. It wasn't as good as my normal recipe but it wasn't bad either and I had some whipping cream left over from the apple cream pie so I whipped it with a whisk and we had that atop.

Welcome back.

Sausage with buttered noodles is good. Browned crisp potatoes would be good too.

Surely looks good. That'll put meat on your bones.

We love dumplings.

Today was a very productive day.
I blew more leaves, cleaned the gutters out, and hahaa cut Tina's Tent ( Gazeebo ) up into tiny little pieces so I could trash it.
Too much of a task to fix it. Like repairing the Titanic.

I was hungry, and grabbed a pile of sliced pepperoni, and slapped it on bread.
I was so hungry, I bit my finger whilst shoving it down the gullet.

Darn. It can rain all it wants to tomorrow; because the leaves are done.
Still more to come down, but the bulk is down so far.

There was like 1/2 lb. of ground beef left from the other day, so I am frying burgers in onions and sweet orange diced peppers.
I will throw some cheese on top and let it melt when they are cooked.

Geepers, my hips and my knees are starting to ache. Must have over done it today.

Cod looks great. My favorite.

If it were 75º here, my air would be on for sure. 85º, I wouldn't be outside.

Welcome Back Imelda.

The supper looks great.

I know what you mean about the hometown food. It's like when we get to go out, Italian Food, is the last thing we want to order.
Tina will get it, but not me. I cooked it; grew up with it, and so why would I pay for it when I eat out.

Tina usually says,"Oooo! I want spaghetti and meatballs!"
I'm like,"Gee, I wonder what that tastes like?".....Smile

Larry is having his tummy troubles again this week so I haven't cooked anything because I had chili and enchiladas on the menu, so I am going to make some Hamburger Glop (gravy) with peas and carrots in it and have it over mashed potatoes. That should be pretty mild for him and will reheat well for when he is hungry and can eat. The meat market has Amish bone-in breasts for $1.99, so I'll get some and make chicken and dumples, as we call them. I made some shortbread cookies about an hour ago and coated them with Autumn hued sanding sugar. Getting ready to make some banana bread and an apple pie.

Imelda - sooo good to see you back! You have been missed.

Your palate has grown accustomed to the "new" cuisine of married life and now you're ready to do your "fusion" of combining the two for you and DH's favorites made to order. No matter what you make you always have such a beautiful plate and wonderful colors~!

We love chicken skin, too, but it went into the "chicken stock" bag in the freezer when we made this dish. You HAVE to skin the chicken, Beth, so you can put the little cuts in it and put the lemon peel inside the cuts. It's delish -- trust me, try it and save the skin for some stock. Plus you've be saving some calories and fat and contributing to the final flavor of the chicken. It was just as good the second time we made it, too. The carcass is already in the freezer waiting for the next chicken stock to be made.

I made something last week that I hadn't made for ages -- Stuffed Pork Tenderloin. I stuff it with sausage stuffing and use the Jimmy Dean spicy sausage.

I used to just hammer each tenderloin to about 1/2-inch and then put them together prior to stuffing. This time, I made something similar to a "C" cut in each tenderloin to minimize the pounding I had to do. Came out great and Brian had forgotten about it since I hadn't made it in so long but was in heaven. I also coat both sides of the tenderloin with EVOO prior to stuffing as it's a pretty lean piece of meat. We serve it with Mustard Sauce made from Dijon mustard -- it's sooo good! Wish I had a camera to take a pic of it, as it's pretty when stuffed, rolled and tied (Brian does the tying) but it's even prettier when sliced and put on a nice plate with mustard sauce -- and it was definitely a picture-worthy roast this time!

Years ago when I used to go on a Cooking Echo on Fidonet, I even wrote down what I did when I made it so I could post it for others to make. It's really pretty and could be used for a special occasion dinner with ease.

I decided on some of Charlie's Kalbi Beef for supper, along side was rice and green beans. Oh, and the 2nd half of my purchased luncheon antipasta salad with romaine, meats, tomatoes, kalmata olives, spicy peppers and croutons.
