    Pancakes. Love 'em. I took my leftover sourdough pancake batter and converted it into pizza crust for tonight. 'Bout ready to build as soon as peppers and onions cook down.

    I have a pork shoulder roasting in the oven. Mashed potatoes and pork gravy, green beans and cranberry or applesauce to go with it.

    Did the jelly gell? I was thinking about your comment when I made grape jelly today,and never will again. It gelled well with Certo and tastes good, but not better than I can buy. The jelly bag had to be suspended from a drying rack set up in my shower as I didn't have anywhere to hang it from in the kitchen. My carpeting from the kitchen to bathroom is off white so I was paranoid about drips anywhere of that grape juice during both trips.

    tried the pickles today after I came back from the country. I only made a 1/4 of the batch so as not to have too much to throw away just in case of failure. they are so good! 002.JPG 004.JPG so much like the ones my mother use to make but she didn't use apples. I might tweak it a bit. add a little more vinegar maybe. i'll leave the spice bag in it until later tonight. I could make a meal of these with home made bread.

    saved a couple apples out and made an apple crisp for my supper. served it with cool whip and partridgeberry jam. apple crisp is perfect for a cold day. we're expecting snow tonight~Georgia

    Raw, rainy and cold here today so I decided to use the leftover steak from last night to make beef stew for tonight's dinner. With a loaf of French bread it will be a delicious night here. The house smells wonderful!

    Cooked up 15 bean chili got about 6 quarts.
    So about a third of it will be canned up in pints as chili.
    A third will be canned up in pints as baked beans.
    And the last third will be made up into refried beans.
    Got small package of hamburger thawed.
    Will make into goulash and or hamburger soup.
    Hamburger soup is made up with diced potatoes,tomatoes,onions,carrots,peas,green beans and whatever leftovers is in refr. Fresh homemade bread, I think Honey Wheat is what I will make tomorrow.

    I was out getting a ton of hog feed and decided to get a bag of frozen spinach cheese ravioli. I'll have red sauce with it, was thinking alfredo but I need to use up what is already there. It will be good in any case.

    I wish my hubby would eat cheese. That spinach cheese ravioli sounds heavenly!

    Dinner tonight is BBQ chicken and/or Garlic onion chicken with a green salad. Cookies for dessert.

    Well, it is store bought so I hope it will be good. You could get some and use it as a side for yourself. All it needs is a heating up in very hot or low boiling water for a few minutes. Really easy. I just seldom think of it and haven't made home made for many a year.

    home made bread and baked beans for supper tonight. I ate too much of it and I don't do enough work winter time to wear it off. but there's always the stairs.


    started making a choc. chip and banana loaf (one of 20 I have to make for my son and his friends for the squirrel hunt. got halfway through and couldn't find choc. chips( a prime example of why all the ingredients should be on the counter before I start. mom always told me that.) added some pineapple, pecans, cherries etc. a bit of rum. turned out to be one of my better ones. ~Georgia

    Last night, steak stir fry. Tonight, had to run to Sam's and planned on a rotisserie chicken but they were sold out. Got some heat and eat organic chicken noodle soup instead. DH has been down with some kind of crud and I can feel my body trying to fight it off, so the 'Hebrew penicillin' was just right.

    Oldest son's girlfriend is joining us for dinner and there aren't too many things that she'll eat, but she loves my meatloaf, so...

    tonight's dinner is meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn. Corn is the only veggie that she eats, too.

    experimenting with another recipe tonight. carrot cake sandwiches. had the recipe for ages. found it online I think. I didn't account for the spread so had to cut them in half. also I would cook the carrots next time. not enough time in the oven to cook them soft which is the way I like them. ~Georgia 001.JPG

    Man o'man, I love meatloaf and mashed spuds. That is just really hard to beat. Any veg works with that combo.

    Those carrot cake sammies are most likely illegal, international law or something, yup. Send them to me and I'll take care of the situation. Free of charge.
