I think I saw Norm do his roasted chicken on a sheet pan with potatoes & carrots....I just remember how much I wanted to reach into my computer screen and take a piece of everything! So, when I decided on the same type meal that's the way I cooked it. The chicken was not a "Jimmy favorite" but was moist and very flavorful. The wing tip did get nice and crunchy, however - yum!

Ever since I started to do the bacon weave for our BLT's, Dane isn't happy unless I have the bacon to cover the toast and either sliced or mashed avocado to add.

The man is just picky and spoiled! lol

So....dessert~berries with sour cream/brown sugar drizzle.

gosh Norm that looks great.   

I just the other day thought gee I sure could go for some home made fish & chips.I have not made that in years.Yesterday on PBS I watched Sara Moulton make fried cat fish.It really has been a long time since I had any catfish.Truth be told it always seems to have to many bones left in it.

I have not had great fish & chips since I left Canada.That brings my mind to I have not had good sourdough since I gave up having it shipped from SanFran Ca.

Beth I just made that myself.Last week I think.
It looks really good too. I still have several frozen whole chickens.carrots & yukons.. ummm.
I might roast it again in my CI skillet.Only just do a half this time.

Gosh, but I miss her.....

Jimmy made ribs recently....one mention was all it took for me to want ribs, too!

So, tonight it's gonna be a baby rack of ribs and butternut squash....I WILL NOT FORGET IT IN THE OVEN THIS TIME! I think I have some green beans...maybe I'll blanch 'em and then decide what to do with them. Barb's parmesan ones looked good. But, I've got a shallot I could crisp up like Imelda does...that sounds good, too. Hmmmm, all day to decide!

the other thing I'm hungry for is what Mom always called a New England Dinner....

yeah, now I remember ~ THAT'S what I bought the beans for! Smoked sausage, potato, onion, carrot, green beans & sweet corn (yeah, I bought one ear just for this meal) - all simmered just until cooked through in a bit of homemade chicken or ham stock. I just use the Johnsonville smoked beef brats because they have the seasoned taste and (more importantly) texture of smoked sausage I like.

Mom always used something like the Hillshire Farms or Echrich brand smoked sausage ring but the texture of those is just too soft for me. When I was a kid we grew up on the Dinner Bell brand ~ and I loved that. But Dinner Bell brand went out of business years ago. I've seen some Southern brands of something called a hot link in the Publix stores here. Interesting looking - might give them a try one of these days when I find them on sale.

Smoked sausage, potato, onion, carrot, green beans . Yup I have made this a lot.If I don't have green beans, I add cabbage.Man I could eat the whole pan..

something my mom would make was Goulash, not the kind that comes in box or made with gd meat & mac noodles.This is made from chunk beef & served over wide noodles.The sauce was kinda sweet. I think it has brown sugar in it.

Oh, yeah....I DO add cabbage, as well. I forgot.

Goulash is one of those meals that has a million different ways to be made. Depends upon where you grew up and what your heritage was (or your mom's friend's heritage....lol). I've had it made with chunks of beef and a paprika/sour cream sauce, over wide egg noodles. And I've had it made with elbow macaroni with ground beef and tomatoes. It's all good.

darn - now you have me hungry for THAT!

so many meals and just me to cook for. Gosh, I wish Dane would hurry up and get here. At least then I'd have more excuse to cook more. He IS tired of his own cooking.

I prefer to cook for myself.Can not stand it when I am asked,does it have onions in there?Does it have any mushrooms.I see green things.These tomato are to chunky. Has black beans, I will not eat those. Olives??? Gross.

This mac & cheese is not like Moms.(boxed)   
all you have is diet soda.?

Can I eat this in the living room?

I don't like blue cheese.

and so on..

Those ribs were Baby Back ribs, and that was just about the size of it. Enough to feed a baby! There was no thick meat on the ribs. They must have been from a skinny piggy!
If there was a tbs. of meat on each rib, it was a lot. Tina picked them up because she was wishing for ribs, and that was all they had was baby back. Cryovac sealed pre packaged too!

I'm still recovering from holidays foods.. still working on the leftover.. but today I decided to start cooking.. I salmon stuffed in pastry on my mind..
