Today I got the soup maker out so we had fresh tomato and pepper soup for lunch. Tonight, Laurie cooked, so we had swordfish steaks with boiled cabbage and petit pois.

A few months ago, we bought a HUGE pork shoulder on a very special offer, roasted it and then I weighed out nine, yes nine two person portions and froze them. Last night, after driving out to explore some more potential villages, I took one out, put it in the oven with boiling water, filled another dish with sliced zucchini in creme fraiche topped with Emmental cheese, then boiled up some green beans and mixed in some homemade onion relish. It was divine and perfect at the end of a rainy day...

LOL. I get forgetful sometimes. Leave part of our meal in the microwave. Once it was our meat!!! Hubby didn't say a word and later when I found it he said he thought we were being vegetarians. Us??????!!! Not hardly! I don't blame you. I love having a day off but it just means I have to work twice as hard the next day.

Taking off for a long weekend just meant that I came back refreshed for all the chores waiting for me. Why can't chores miraculously get done by someone ELSE while I'm gone? I have been working SO hard all week that my fingers are worn down to just NUBS!
Needless to say, I have not been putting any effort into cooking -- just getting by on whatever is handy all week.
Last night, I made "Refrigerator Pork Soup." I used up SEVEN containers in my fridge! It was a healthy soup -- I was too pooped to fuss over it! And we sat down and ate it up. It was an odd soup though... full of flavor yet oddly bland. Maybe because I totally forgot to put any SALT in it!

It's noon now and I've been working hard for 4 hours. Heavy house cleaning and outdoor work. I'm taking a short rest for lunch and I've got hours and hours more to do! I'm strongly considering just adding salt to the leftover soup and calling it a day!

I love enchiladas. Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies.

I love veal too. And fish.

I get ideas here on what to have.

Lunch yesterday was out with the girls, nine of us. I had a foie gras salad to start, followed by veal in a teriyaki sauce with a salad, no dessert!! And no one drank any wine - it was waters all round!

We had a late dinner as I was full from lunch, so I cooked peppers, onions and tomatoes with mixed fish and a drop of rosť wine, a healthy fish stew.

I had leftover chicken in garlic sauce from lunch yesterday that my friend bought me. I was just in the mood for the soup that comes with the meals, but the chicken dish has the vegetables that I like that way. I only eat 1/3 to 1/2 (sometimes less) of those meals and not much of the rice when we get them.

I love the sound of those nobake apple cookies. When we go back to the UK, there should be some apples and pears still to pick and I will be drying them out in the dehydrator for handy snacks...

Just saw an old post on here and it reminded me of the samples they had at Natural Grocers this week. Called No Bake Apple Cookies they were apple slices topped with sunflower butter (peanut butter or nut butter okay, too), the choice of Organic chocolate chips, organic apple cider sweetened cranberries, and organic coconut flakes. I had all but the coconut. That was a pretty good little snack.

All husbands are a little crazy and your comment about yours proves it. Gag - commercial frozen dinners are the equivalent of dog food for people. I can't stand them.

The Creamy Paprika Pork sounds good. I love paprika and so does my hubby. He is half Hungarian. LOL.

Being the cook, I LOVE leftovers. Being the ass, DH refuses to eat anything not made fresh that evening -- except for frozen (commercial) meals when I don't cook. WHERE is the "roll eyes!" emoticon?

I fixed that recipe SP recently e-mailed: Creany Paprika Pork. It was easy to prepare, easy to clean up after, and tasted delicious (despite my fears about 2 Tablespoons (WHAT!?) of paprika! We had it over egg noodles (and by that, I mean something akin to oopsie rolls spread very thin and baked and then cut into noodles), served with buttered broccoli spears.

Sounds good. We had leftovers.

tossed greens salad, sauteed zucchini, tortillas, beef fajitas, and the fixings:
homemade pico de gallo, sour cream, cheese. No rice or beans -- too many carbs!

Some of the best meals start out like this. By using up what we have in the fridge. Sounds like a keeper.

well, I just got what I call a wild hair (or maybe that is a misunderstanding and short for a wild hare-brained idea) and thought that the two might taste good together -- and since I happened to HAVE both in my fridge needing to be used, that is what I did! And DD, DH (much to my surprise) and I all thought it was DELICIOUS -- there was none left!

I used frozen cut green beans (enough for 4 servings), 1 1/2 fresh peaches I'd previously peeled and stored in the fridge with a little sugar sprinkled on top as a preservative (which formed its own syrup), a little butter, and about a tablespoon of a clear orangish Oriental sauce leftover from someone's doggy bag meal.

I had intended to char the green beans in butter in a large skillet, but they wept so much water during cooking that it was impossible to char them and still leave them a little crisp as I desired. This fact (watered down butter) necessitated a change in plans -- now I needed a sauce! I added the peaches chopped into chunks and poured some (2?) T of the syrup in as well. Since this was supposed to be a side dish it needed some salty/umami flavors to balance the sweetness and a tablespoon of oriental sauce provided that kick. I immediately added sliced almonds and sauted the mixture to reduce and thicken the sauce over high heat. That's all.
The peaches weren't fully cooked and so retained lots of juice in each chunk, the green beans were still a little firm (as we like), and there was just enough sauce to make everything glisten.
Since I used CUT green beans (rather than whole), and since I put the peach syrup in near the beginning of cooking, yes, the green beans were somewhat infused with peach flavor. But primarily, there were just enough chunked peaches to be in almost every bite -- and since they were juicy, each bite burst with peach flavor!

This is something I DEFINITELY will be doing again! And next time, I'll take measurements and find out exactly how to make that oriental sauce -- I know the restaurant it came from!
