I am a full time married,working empty nester. DH still works full time also. I usually cook supper 4 to 5 times weekly, and then some weeks not at all. Just a general cook, nothing fancy but filling.
Cone, waffle, sugar or otherwise.
I am with @bruisedbudda, just eat strawberries in bed with a little white wine......
I also pre-cook my apples, not over cook, just a few, maybe 5, minutes before I put them in the uncooked crust.
Todays lunch was honeybaked ham, honey mustard and swiss cheese on whole grain bread that was buttered and grilled. Yum!!!
So a grilled cheese with ham......
I soaked dried black eyed peas overnight, then cooked them with a piece of leftover ham. We also had a pan of cornbread and steamed cabbage. It was yummy!!!
Chop some bacon, then fry until crisp. Brown your chopped cabbage in the drippings. Add a dash of red pepper flakes.
I am with AJ12754 with a spot for kids.
We are here to help each other and but for the grace of God any of us could be in their position. While I usually don't hand out money, I try to give food or something to drink to those who ask. I am not the best at it, as I am sure some (most) of you are better at it than me, but if we all do what we can hopefully it will make our world a better place.
Any and all recipes would be appreciated!!!! Especially anything that could be made, say before Thanksgiving.
Thanks for all in the info!!!
Apple pie!!! Be safe...
@oldelady---please post the cookie recipe when you get a chance
Since it is just the 2 of us, I go whenever we need something. Hubs is NEVER without milk and Little Debbie Oatmeal Pies, so if we are down to one gallon and one box, he is off to purchase more.
We live in the central Arkansas area and my shopping time varies.
Wow, thanks for all the great ideas...
I was lucky enough to go to Martha's Vineyard for 10 days a few summers ago. While we ate at some wonderful places, the favorite was a fish market at (ok folks, I know I will spell this wrong) Mansaw???? They steamed fresh caught lobsters and we ate them on outside while watching the boats come in. A memory that will last me a lifetime.
I also saw Kenji's post and that got me to thinking about getting one of the others. We have an older ice cream maker that requires the ice and rock salt. It is not pratical for just 2 people. Thanks for all of the information.
Thanks a bunch!!!
I always mix my peeled, sliced apples with a couple of tablespoons of flour, some sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg with a splash of water and cook it for a few minutes with I am making my pie crust. Then I top my apples with a few pats of butter and the top crust. I also sprinkle the top crust with sugar before I bake it.
I would do a chicken salad (I like mine with Granny Smith apples, red grapes and pecans) maybe on mini crossiants (sp?) along with fruit and a green salad. Maybe a bakery cake. Enjoy your shower and new baby!!!!
It is hot and humid here in Arkansas so we had take out.
I don't want anyone in my kitchen while I am cooking but I welcome all comers when it is clean up time.
You might look at Paula Deen's receipe for a White Chocolate with Strawberry filling. That is what I had for my wedding cake and it was DELISH!!!!!!!!!!!
Congrats and Best Wishes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. I have made and frozen a lasagna already and have some taco/nacho meat made and frozen.
I don't like having to take a bunch of spices, etc. but I like the rotisserie chickens and various salad ideas. We will be buying sandwich fixings and doing that for lunch.
We are going to Destin, FL (hoping the oil spill in the gulf doesn't go ashore).
Since we live in the South and the veggies are coming on strong, today we have purple hull peas, fired okra, steamed new potatoes, vine ripes tomatoes and cornbread.
Tomorrow we will have hamburger steak with onions and mushrooms, roasted new potatoes and maybe squash. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
