I've got some vegetables cut and pork ready for a pan of sweet & sour pork. I had a leftover red pepper to use and that's something I have to have in my s&s pork. Dane doesn't like it, but I just put it in last so it's still tender-crisp and he can pick it out. Since it's not cooked in the sauce for long it doesn't break down and bother his stomach.

Jimmy, I'm gettin' hungry for some penne or fat riggitoni.....that sounds good with meatballs and sauce.

Thanks so much, Bug. I presume your post was the entire batch and not the half batch, right? I see it serves 4 but would you know how much the batch is in quarts, would you? The recipe looks like it would make about 1-1/2 quarts but I thought you might know...

Again, many thanks for posting it.

Niagara, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. When I go, I sure hope to go holding Brian's hand. The celebration of life you had for him sounds wonderful.

Please know that you're in my thoughts and prayers.

The stir fry looks good Barb.

Did you roast the bird outside on the grill?


We had Hot Dogs for supper. I had a big raisin bran muffin.
You should hear my stomach gurgling and making some wicked noises.

I had a day of eating out today. Lunch at one of our 'ladies' favorites', The Cotillion Southern Café. I even broke down and bought one of the owner/chef's cookbooks. It's just a great read...

We had supper with friends at an Italian place in one of the town centers. Love when they give you a choice of a full size pasta dish or a half size (which is always enough for me). That way I get to order an appetizer and not feel horribly stuffed. I had stuffed clams and a chicken/vegetable/fettucini. Good stuff.

Nothin worse than bringing home spaghetti and that garlic bread in the take home styrofoam box. The spaghetti gets dry, and the bread gets wet and stcky.

I never had to take home any leftovers. I eat everything! pale

It really would be worth just getting the great crusty bread there.

Oh! Yeah! Fresh Blueberries! YUM!

Tina just left to go south to see her uncle in Hamilton Twp. NJ ... the blueberry capital where tons are grown there. Frank, the neighbor across from her uncles place, has them at his farm stand. He has the small variety ones too, which we like in blueberry muffins. Really sweet too!... Only problem is, we have to wait till they grow. They won't start to be ready up here till mid July.

DD Maria....has this recipe for a Blueberry tart / tort, whatever. OOOooo! So good. I will cut a slice, and then put fresh extra berries and whipped cream, or ice cream on top.... You probably seen them? The ones you bake in a pie pan, or those fluted pans. Buttery and crunchy.  bounce 

Fresh local grown produce is great too. You might pay a little more, but at least you know it didn't come from some chemical mass produced fields in some foreign country etc.

Fresh Georgia peaches were available at one of the roadside stands....the kind where someone with a pickup truck pulls in to an abandoned old gas station site and starts sellin' whatever he can make a profit with.  But I could smell peaches when I pulled up and got out of my car so I knew he had the real deal.

He also had some nice looking tomatoes.....but I've got those comin' on like gang busters so they were easy to pass by.

So ~ Dane gets a fresh peach pie.  I was so proud of myself that I remembered to put the pie on a foil lined pan to catch the drips.  Since I just got done finishing up the oven cleaning it would have really made me angry to burn peach juices all over...



I made enough dough for two baby tart shells, one regular size pie shell to use for a banana cream or coconut cream (forgot to use my machete to dock it ~ just used a regular fork....) and a small batch of cinnamon/sugar pie crust 'cookies' ~ the same kind Grandma let me make with the last of the dough when she made pie.  I'd get to mush all the scraps together, roll it out in any shape it went, slather on some butter and sprinkle on the cinnamon/sugar.  Yum!

Ummm! Beth, the pie looks great. I love peaches, but I am not a fan of them in a pie. I will eat it, and it's ok, but I like canned or just fresh whole peaches.
Tina loves peach pie.
