Nothing fancy. Kielbasi and onions with potatoes.

Very satisfying meal.

And burpe too! Smile

I don't think I've ever gotten sick of home grown beans. They always taste so good. And there are a million ways to use them. I like them blanched with shallots or red onions, dill, evoo and lemon for a salad. Then again with almonds or pecans or hazelnuts. Leftovers fried up in bacon fat with corn to caramelize in a cast iron pan....

the list goes on and on...keep picking and they'll keep growing. Only bad part are the darn mosquitos.

but you know that.

It has been a nice day here today. It was windy earlier and my tomato plant got blown over and broken at the stem even though I tied it up a few days ago. Charlie and Cassie are helping her cousin pack up for a move. They made dinner for me. We had T-Bone steaks, mixed vegetables cooked through but crisp and seasoned with Jalapenos and Creole seasoning, fried sweet potatoes and a dessert that was layered fruit, cake and whipped cream.

Beth! I'll bet you never had them with plain bread crumbs?.....

My Mom made them so my brother would eat them and not G A G .

She would Brown the bread crumbs in oil and butter, and mix that into the hot beans. OMG they were so good!
She called them, "Crumby Beans!"

Thanks. I do oven roasted veggies quite often when I have company, so versatile to make, and not a last minute thing to have to take off the stove, these will be a lovely new variation, also as a take-along for a pot luck!

I bought a condo in a large building, and it looks like there are pot luck lunches quite often. I plan to become active in this new to me community once I sell my farm and go on to the next step in my life. Hit a significant b-day last week, let's only say that it's past the 60s Smile  so it's time to try new things again! Smile

Happy Belated Birthday, Lore ! There are so many fun and exciting things ahead if we are just open to new friends and their ideas. Living in a populated area offers many more opportunities for enjoying peer activities.....much easier than being way out on the farm, isolated from people on a day to day basis.

I decided to pull all the ingredients for Barb's zucchini/tomato casserole out of my vegetable drawer. Every time I looked at her pic it made my mouth water. I did make it a little more 'my way' by adding some panko crumbs to the grated parmesan & thyme to sprinkle over the top. I like a little crunch.

It's in the toaster oven now. We'll see how nicely it goes with a grilled chicken breast.

Ribs look good, Barb. What else do you have to do tomorrow besides cleaning the grates? LOL

Here's my casserole - YOURS was much, much prettier. But it was tasty so that's all that matters to me.



We had grilled chicken breast, the zucchini & tomato casserole, a tossed salad and the rest of the toasted baguette.

We had a nice dinner for fathers day.

Maria was in a tizzy. Her BF was having a dilemma with one of the poor pigs.
She was trying to give birth, and she was too weak to push out the piglets.

She was only a year old, and much too young for birth.
Lenny tried to help her internally, but it is turning out they may have to end it all.

Anyway... there was so much leftover London Broil, and what is shown on the pictures, is the leftovers. Son Jimmy wasn't around. He is in the Bahamas. LOL

Maria made Quiche 3 different kinds.

We had a ice cream cake from Cold Stone Creamery, and a cake from Weis supermarkets.

there were buttered noodles too.

No dinner for me today, I was still full from lunch. My children took me to The Keg for a combination lunch. Mothers' Day, fathers' Day, my birthday, son Danny's birthday. We missed going out for Mothers' Day because hubby had been placed in palliative care, my b-day was Jun11, son's June 13, and today was Fathers' Day. The first fathers day for my sons without having their father.

I had the special, a top sirloin steak with what they called seafood Oscar. Shrimp and scallops in a Bernaise sauce. Very tasty, but not worth the $45.00. The shrimp and scallops were very tiny, but their patio is awesome, nice wicker furniture with comfy pillows to sit on, so I guess that the price of the meal has to cover that too.

It was a really nice visit with both sons and daughters-in-law.

Glad you had a nice time with the kids, and I'm sure it was well worth it!

I do that sometimes. I'll eat a lunch that is so filling, that I don't even want to think of food for supper.

I had a cup of Italian wedding soup that Tina made today, and I usually have a piece of bread with soup; or crackers.
I didn't, because it would spoil my supper (as mom used to say).

It sounds absolutely lovely, Niagara. And don't worry about the cost. Our kids don't think a thing about it. Just think how lucky you are to have such considerate children who want to spend time with you. That's a tribute to you and their father because of the example you set for them as they grew up.

Jimmy, you should have put the "free Meal" sign out in the front yard....geesh! what an enormous amount of food.

And poor, poor Jim, Jr. ~ unable to come because he's in The Bahamas! How awful for him & his wife.
