What's for Dinner #311 - the Relax, Kick Back, and Enjoy Summer Edition

I have never steamed my eggs. I have been generally successful with the boil method but I bought farm eggs vs the usual Amish eggs and the size was varied. I will try steaming. Thanks for the info.

You have me beat. Third generation native here. I have no plans to leave unless James gets a job offer through his company. He would prefer to live on a lake so my life could change someday. I would easily move to keep my man but I truly am a flatlander that is bred for heat.

Nice haul from the farmers' market. Enjoy it SHFM.

Well, last night I had way more chicken breast than I needed for the cheesy pasta bake that I made so I saved half for tonight. I made a Mexican lasagna with the leftover cheddar cheese sauce, chicken, refried beans seasoned with salsa and homemade taco seasoning, flour tortillas, jalapenos, cheddar cheese and scallion tops. I also made a big ass salad of spinach greens, garden cukes and tomato, parsley, carrots, celery, bell pepper, scallion and hard boiled egg just a bit over done with a green ring(dammit). Tzatziki thinned with milk for a dressing for me and HV ranch for James.

As much as I love my kitties, that doesn't sound silly at all. They make for some very entertaining and comforting company. I can't imagine my life without my furry friends.

Are you snacking on anything right now? **Springtime Edition**

Carrots dipped in tzatziki that I made from garden fresh cucumbers. Very yummy.

Glad you are settled in. I am still wrapping my brain around someone moving AWAY from Florida since people are usually moving here.

You were laughing at me then. Probably pointing too because I would probably be in my zip up Happy Bunny hoodie.

I know you are going to love the Ronco. And it is so much cheaper and you control the ingredients.

Since my garden is kicking out cucumbers I made Belize coleslaw for a side tonight. A casserole of chicken, broccoli, egg noodles and cheese sauce topped with cheddar cheese and panko. Biscuits to go with.

I had mine on most of my cook top and still made mashed potatoes and gravy on my other burners. It is completely a different shape though. I can't speak for your space but my kitchen is very limited and it is still worth having.

Boy, that sure makes mine look ugly. It is also the same price I paid a decade ago. Sheesh. I want a fancy one now.

Four chicken wings. Three drumettes and one flat. The drumettes were teriyaki and the flat was buffalo. Not that tasty or worth the calories but I bought 'em so I et 'em.

Honestly all it says is Showtime. I got it off an infomercial about ten years ago, It was worth it for chicken and prime ribs alone but it makes a mean pork roast as well. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Sounds wonderful. I wish I had the room to garden and the ability to eat like you do.

You did. You rarely stop in but your antenna is always up for the southern gems.

For all the hard work it was porn. Sweet, salty and tender skin. I am a proud girl. They usually get tough when they get that big but I picked it several days ago when it just started to turn so I wouldn't have to kill the birds for pecking holes in that beauty.

Jealous of both the view and the meal. Yum. I would have gone the snacky route, too.

Okay... trying this for a fourth time. Anyone else having trouble posting?

Tonight I am serving the best tomato of this season. It is as big as a softball and must weigh a pound. I made a fresh tzatziki from a couple of Kirby cukes I picked today to use up more dill and will be using it to top the tomato. Navy bean and ham soup with garlic croutons to go along side. I may even make drop biscuits...maybe.

Gratuitous pic of the tomato....

I had the rest of my rotisserie chicken to use up tonight. Between James' and my dinner and his lunchbox I decided to use the rest shredded up and made into BBQ sandwiches on Marty's rolls with cheddar. Baked beans and dilled red potato salad to go with. The bones, some celery, onion, carrot, bay leaves, garlic and peppercorn were put in a stock pot and simmered. Not sure yet what I will do with the broth. I have plenty of dill left from the cuke salad and potato salad. Any thoughts on using it up would be welcome.

I just got a very fitting shirt from my pet supply store. It is a cat with the heading "Feed me. Pet me. Now leave me alone." Cute.
