If you're looking for lots of "food" talk tonight... sorry, but I think I'll let you down BIG TIME!  Dinner consisted of a doctored up $1.19 pizza, and a lettuce salad, adding only tomato and grated cheddar!  It was one of those days, I guess...

After the day had started for me, I fed the "boys," (dogs) while a couple of my home made egg rolls reheated in the toaster oven... which J had for lunch!  So I put two more in for me, and began thinking just where the afternoon might take me... Walgreens was looking pretty good!  So, a couple of hours later, I trundled off...

The main item I was looking for, was potting soil... which I needed for planting more "stuff."  A better deal at Home Depot, probably, but the trip ended up multi successful!  New slippers for the both of us, couple other odds & ends...  Head for home.

Now... it's time to PLANT!  I put in some scallion seeds, and planted 4 scallions (from the market...) prepped a pot for the cuke's.  Then I moved many of the plants to more shaded areas, so they won't burn up in the summer sun - tho they're telling us it's cooling down again... talk about a HUGE surprise!  I'm far from done out there, but I've been collecting citrus leaves for 2 yrs to try as mulch....  Some time this week, I'll finish dealing with that...  I'll let you know if vinegar will indeed kill unwanted growth! 

Tomorrow I'm visiting Deni, and taking Margarita fixin's...  Finally going to try the lemon sherbet I made as a mixer!  Dinner's going to need to be one of 3 choices... 1)put on a crock pot meal early, 2) leftovers, 3) 30 mins or less!

So, all, till down the road, be well, be happy, be crazy!!!

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
