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!
