CrazyCook on a Mission...

Some time ago, one of my friends here at AR turned me on to yet another recipe site that I was unfamiliar with, which did indeed supply me with a much wanted version of "The Colonel's" fried chicken. This pot of gold is called copykat.com, should any
of you care... I've since found rec's there for things that I like or would like to make at home...
taco seasoning mix
taco sauce (from "Taco Bell")
onion soup mix
to name only a few. I just this afternoon found a substitute recipe for "McCormick's" Salad Supreme - an addition to any and all pasta salads I make... IF I'm using an oil based dressing, as Italian, at least.
Having spent the past few hours... INDEED, hours, sifting through the myriad of recipes posted at this site, I have emailed a couple to myself, but more so, have jotted down the rec's on paper to transfer to one of my self made cookbooks.
Now my dilemma is, just what do I feel like for dinner this evening... it's hot as hades outside, and in, for that matter, so I truly don't want to heat the kitchen up too much! I did put some pasta that I cooked yesterday, together with a few other ingredients
to make a chilled pasta salad... now should we burgers & pasta? At least the heat would all STAY outside... or do I really feel like making a batch of taco meat? The tank has been filled since we last used the bbq (and I do have a side burner on it...) but
then either way, I have no onion or tomato, for either dish! We could make do...
In case any of you have been wondering, my efforts to organize that "shoebox" of loose recipes, AND that frightening file box I once again decided to "re-vamp," are both coming along... but alas, I cannot state that either are FINISHED! I'm beginning to think
that I may have a problem with "completing" projects, once I get them started! I've yet also to finish the cover for my comforter... but the bedskirt IS DONE, and has been... I've just neglected to mention it...
So, despite the heat, I am managing to keep pretty busy... must call mom tho' - it's been a while! Uggh!
Don't forget... to be healthy, happy, and crazy!
