I HATE chicken...

Well, I'm in that funk again... unfortunately I'm out of pig in the freezer (almost,) so beef is on the menu! I fixed a chicken dish I've enjoyed in the past, a "pilaf" made with sherry/cream of mushroom soup/dry onion soup mix... One bit of chicken,
and the rest went into the L/O bowl! Sure hope J will eat the remainder soon, or it will end up dog food, or in the trash.
I had run out of beef bouillan, but once again, buddy Rose offered to give me what she had in the cupboard... (she doesn't cook much anymore.) I don't even have canned broth or consumme in the pantry! On tonight's menu, chicken fried steak, mashed spuds with
creamed corn. Think I'll open a can of crm chic. soup, and dilute it for gravy... Don't normally do that sort of thing... but then, I do have chicken broth in the freezer! Did you know that that's part of how it was named "chicken fried?" I never did,
until the local paper printed a rec. from a local restaurant, which called for gravy from chicken stock!
So, I've thawed out a couple decent sized pieces of round steak which I will beat to death with my mallet/tenderizer, flour it, fry it (let's plug up those arteries!) and smother it with gravy! Too bad it'll still be near 100F outside, but then, with the climate
control doing it's job, it's probably 80-ish inside. I anxiously await cooler weather... we're promised, but alas, each day, they tell us it will be days later... over, and over!
So, sooner or later, I'll come out of my "I hate chicken" mode, and get back into the groove - for a while at least. Meantime, I'd best stock the freezer with plenty of pork! Guess I'll have to check the grocery ads again!
So, now it's time to report on the new addition... I'll post my fav pic so far, it's just too cute! Pyewacket has definately settled in, simply too bad that the other kitties are still all kinds up upset and want nothing to do with their new sibling (still
can't tell male/female...) Regardless, "she's" stolen both of our hearts already!
Meantime, be healthy, be happy, be crazy!
