must go supper... AGAIN!

Regardless of just what crazycook has been up to, from time to time, there simply MUST be an evening aimed at ridding the frige of a week's worth of leftovers.  J's mom used to call it "must go" supper, tho I hazzard a guess that she used to mix stuff up, resulting in some sort of casserole concoction that might have been only marginally edible!  I prefer to lay out the myriad of dishes, referring to the offerings as "smorgasborg!" 

Last evening, we put a dent in what I'd pulled out... that which had been prepared within the past week...  L/O baked beans, a bit of beef stroganoff, a casserole of stuffing, sausage, and gravy... add to it, a few meatballs (with spaghetti,) and some broccoli/cauliflower in cheese sauce...

Tonight, I'm scratching an itch I've been dealing with for some time now!  By noon, I had a good size hunk of cow atop potatoes and carrots, with a squash of garlic, and what little remaining onion I found in the frige.  Dinner is made... short of thickening any broth for gravy (a MUST unless I'm simply too lazy to deal with it!)  I don't recall just how long it's been since we've had a roast! 

As I wasn't kitchen crazy this afternoon, I ventured out to clean up my patio some, planted a few seeds (may well get nowhere there!) and finally set about baking for our neighbor Anna.  Banana bread went by the wayside as my bananas looked more like a science experiment... so I pulled out the rec. for one of my fav Brit desserts... Treacle Pudding.  I surely hope they enjoy it!  This time, her daughter was there (to translate,) informing us that Anna didn't "know" me...  I had hoped that she understood more English than she was letting on, as I speak 0 Spanish!

Now, just when I will get around to finishing the delicious potato soup is beyond me... but guess I'd better do something with is soon, before it goes to meet Mr Garbage Disposal!  Just when I thought that it was "soup" weather, it began to heat up again!  We're expecting triple digits again soon!  That is, if the weather folk are even near on track... tho I did catch this afternoon that it was mid 70's in Mich. today!

So, till cooler weather comes, guess I'll simply say, be healthy, be happy, be crazy!

LOL - went through that last week and now we've a frige full of leftover leftovers. Poor hubby is at his wits end, but has been such a good sport about it I can't complain. Usually our *leftovers* end up as feed for a pig - but we didn't buy one this year...Off to the compost pile!

I hate to put anything in the fridge because it normally it just don't get eaten. so I try to only cook enuf to eat for that dinner, unless we plan to have left overs.

J doesn't grumble either, litegal... but I do try to eat that sort of stuff for lunches! Summer heat or not, I seem to prefer a "hot" lunch, over a plain ol' sandwich! KS, try as I might to cook smaller amts... I just don't seem to get it right! Today, craved an egg however, so more bacon and fried spud... instead of the l/o stroganoff or whatever! lol Be well, both

I did the same thing last week. Made a big pot of potato soup and that very day the temperature jumped 20 degrees. Oh well, it was still good. Sometimes you get luck with the LOs. I had about a cup of white rice and a few tbs of pesto that needed to be used. I mixed them together and wowza! Good stuff. Too bad that doesn't happen more often.

Don't know what the problem is, Judy, guess my muse simply went on vacation! BSM, I just put a little pot. soup into the freezer... probably should have simply tossed it! Be well, friends! I'll TRY to get my ++++ together soon, and get back to my usual antics!

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.
