Have No clue for supper tonight.

So for now, we are in cooking limbo > > > > ( sigh )

Ok.... a decision was made. Tina mommy stopped at shoprite this AM and picked up a Shoulder chuck roast. A little over trimmed, but she will make it work.
It's braising now nice and slow with carrots / celery / onions....and potato later when done.
She is baking a fresh home made pumpkin pie too. Yummy!

Pot roast was sorta good, and it was delicious. On one side of the bottom was chew chew chew like a ball of string, and dry dry dry as I chewed, and then I could not swally it.
Yet.... The top 1/2 was so tender. That was the top that didn't boil in the liquid.
As it was.... a 3 lb roast was too much to make. If we don't get to make sliced thin sandwiches when it is cold, I will grind it, and add it to ground beef to make chili during the week.
The gravy thickened from the juice was awesome.
I took pictures and will add them as soon as I can get to the computer in the kitchen.

The Mrs. is on the phone; Jibber Jabbering with my cousin...... LOL Talking about food. What else?? hahahaha



The leftover 1/2



Tina's Mish Mash Potatoes and Carrots....Yuck!


We did a good Job On the pumpkin Pie she made! ....

That looks good Buzz. Wife brought me home dinner last night. Might simmer up a batch of chili for tonight. Using up the last of the tomatoes in the garden.

Finally getting our roof (3 rooms) fixed. They have been braced up since the last snow/ice storm in February; that cracked beams and major caused damage. Had to file insurance claim and they didn't give us enough. So adjusted came back met the contractor .... after this long they finally gave us more money and we are getting it done. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO we need to stay in a motel for 6 days (fingers crossed). I can't sleep because of pain etc. So eating crap for the near future.

Surely looks good Joe!

Never had an individual stuffed pork chop, but Tina makes a stuffing, and sticks it in between a few chops in a baking 4x9 Corning ware pan.

As far as those little E-Clairs.... we can't just eat 2. It's like pop-ems.
The greatest thing, ( In my Opinion ) is the square white container they come in. Great for leftovers, and especially sending the kids food home with them. That way, they can microvave (heat ) in them, and we don't care. When we give tem food in the tupperware collection containers, they send them back with burned spots on the inside. Even after telling them,"Please Don't Microwave them!", they still do it!"

What I do, is set like 5 of those eclairs in line, and tell Tina..."See Dear, 5 mini's equal one regular eclair!":whistling:

Last night's chili was made with maters and fresh herbs from the garden. It was great over white rice. Have enough for another meal also. We have a bunch of purple cabbage that is ready. I want a big batch of home made slaw and some cabbage and potatoes. I ain't supposed to eat it because of the coumadin but will just have to take some extra rat poison when I do. LOL

What a great cooking Day!
Here is the Lunch Bow ties and peas Tina made...
Then the Chili I made for supper, and we tasted little side bowls of it, and it was great. Supper will be that for tomorrow.

We ate the pot roast on sandwiches and pickles on the side.

I mentioned scones, and Tina whipped up some. They just came out of the oven. I naturally ate one hot from the oven.
Mom used to say, "Let it cool off, it will stick to your heart if the dough is hot!"

Going to grill some strip steaks with baked taters. Wife is making an apple pie and some cookies while the oven is on. Windy as heck to be grilling but I want some steak.
