Niagara Visitor


Leftovers here too. My friend Robin and her 12 year old daughter came for a swim in the pool. They both love to swim, and it's much better for me if there's someone in the pool with me. So, we've made a Tuesday night date night. I had some leftover meatballs ans sauce in the freezer, added another can of diced tomatoes cooked up some pasta, and dinner was done!

I made a pot of chili for Dane tonight. I'm not really hungry since I went for a late lunch with the ladies after a chilly game of shuffleboard. We'll be playing weekly....never knew there were so many rules & 'suggested' courtesies to the game. I didn't 'win', but I didn't come in last, either. lol

beautiful pan Barbara.. I want one too Laughing

no cooking today... my kitchen will be close until next month.. I have bunch frozen meals for Dirk.. pot roast, meatloaf, ravioli, lasagna, ham, salami, a few loaves of French breads and more.. I know he will be happy to have his chance to cook his favorite foods too..  

I'm leaving tomorrow, and will check in occasionally.. tonight DH want to take me out for dinner, I don't really want to, but he insisted, I got online and checked out some steak house, but I don't feel like to go there, I like like his grilled steaks better.. I crave for Country Fried steak but we'll see, we don't have good restaurants nearby, so we'll see where we decide to go when we drive to the neighbor town, about 25 miles away

Have a safe trip, Imelda. I know you must be anxious and happy to be going to visit your mother and family.....complete with your 'I-grew-up-eating-this' menu.

We will await your return with many pictures and stories of what you got to eat.

Never mind shuffle board.... you shuffle those burgers in the pan girl.

Tonight we had Susans Meatballs in mushroom soup gravy. Scalloped potatoes in the dehydrated box that you add milk and water etc.

Gabe had some chicken from the store rotisserie pit.

Had Drakes Ring Dings for dessert.

Oh wow!.... Anything with meat balls gotta be good!

Thanks for pushing me to go to the store, Barb!

I managed to pick up a couple nice chuck roasts at a reasonable cost.....I'll be able to make pot roast this weekend, too. Yours looks falling apart delicious!

A local grocery had choice boneless chucks on sale for $3.99/lb so I bought one too. Chuck roasts are great comfort food in the winter. I remember when my other bought them for 87 cents a pound. That was when you could get a weeks worth of groceries to feed a family of 5 for $25.

Had Mr's T''s Pierogi Tonight. ( Potato Paste in a wad of dough )
No where's near as good as "Tina's Home Made ones!"

Had Italian cookies that DD brought over from the market. Not Bad.

That's it. The kitchen is closed to Jimmy. I shouldn't speak too loudly, but the stomach is feeling a little better, and I could sleep without jumping up with stomach and chest pains.

Glad to hear your new eating pattern is helping with solving your digestive distress. It's not so difficult to do when you experience the good results you are having so soon after you've stopped your night time noshing.

Good for you, Jimmy. Keep it up!

Thanks Beth. It must be working, because morning comes with an empty and slightly hungry stomach!...

As a rule for me generally I do not eat anything past 7PM> Sometimes it may be later. But I make sure it is not heavy or fried or spicey or sugar.

When it is dark time wise ,like in the summer & I grill beef, & I eat later ..Towards almost 9... No No pale pale bom

It is the same in our house too. We try not to eat past 5 or 6 pm and if we do it isn't much because we all know we will be hitting the Maalox, Pepto, Pepcid and sleeping upright in bed if we do. We all marvel how some people can have a steak dinner at 10pm and sleep on it. Donuts, especially Krispy Kreme's have to be eaten in the morning because they take all day to go down. Anything even remotely related to a chile, including paprika will give me days of grief. Growing old is not fun.

Barb.... know what you mean. "T" and I will watch food shows all day, and Tina will search and look on line...and print too, a whole pile of recipe's....and it winds up, that we will have take out Wendy's or pizza. Then.... the recipe's get stashed someplace that we can't find them.

Beth... the beef looks good. I like the sticks of celery done like that. I'm the only one that eats celery like that.
