It's been so long I don't remember offhand - but the recipe I used is from this random cowboy cookbook I found in a thrift shop years ago.

I ended up making garlic noodles with chicken, scallions and edamame tonight.

I was kind of thinking bacon and whiskey chili, but it's humid, so... I just don't know. MEH.

Well, we had the black beans in corn tortillas. We have been eating a LOT of black beans and tacos in various forms this summer. Need to mix it up.

So far on the schedule for this week I have:

* Hamburgers/veggie burgers
* Rice bowls with vegetables and tofu
* Pasta with canned salmon (sauteed with garlic/lemon)
* Pizza bread

Sides will be the usual - salad, steamed broccoli, cut-up vegetables, etc.

We have a nice bunch of chard from our garden, so I'm going to make pork and chard hand pies, with potatoes and onions. Guess it's a kind of pasty, really.

Hah! That was a disaster. I started cooking way to late to get potatoes cooked in time for supper, so had to scratch those. Ended up with a packet of microwave Annie's instead. Mmm. Classy. Looked at the green beans and they were all brown and yucky, so had to scratch those. Cooked up a box of baby spinach instead, but I didn't adjust for shrinkage and it ended up way too salty and I ended up throwing it out. Flounder came out okay, but splattered oil all over the kitchen floor and the caper sauce reduced too much, so that was salty too. Whoops!!! I think we should have just had yogurt and watermelon for supper.

Don't feel bad - I had to chuck my pie crust and start over too. I've made pie crust about a million times, and I know that the recipe I uses calls for about a quarter cup of water - so, why did I add 3/4 cup? Who knows...

Two down, two to go. Made the pizza bread last night, and tonight will be the pasta. Where on earth did that strikeout style go? Couldn't find it, so I put smilies next to the stuff I made.

Tonight I'm making tricolor rotini with doctored up bottled pasta sauce (added a little white wine and herbs) and breaded chicken using my magic mix - ground rice crispies, oregano, parsley, basil, ground onion, ground garlic, salt and pepper.

Sure do! Pizza bread is a staple over here, and sometimes we eat popcorn for breakfast...

Hah, thanks. This was....something special. We got home late and were low on veggies and proteins with no time to shop, so I googled what we had and followed the first recipe I found - Pasta with spinach, hot dogs(!) and cream cheese (!!). It was....weird. But honestly if you replaced the hot dog with regular sausage it would be a pretty reasonable dish.

Tonight, I swear, I am going to make the pork and broccoli stir-fry that's been on the agenda the past two days.

It was wonderful dinner. The food was very interesting, but tasty;-) We ate cold soup (okroshka is i spell it right): fresh veggies, boiled chicken breasts - very tasty! Aslo we had few salads. The most i liked vareniks with strawberries for desert!!! fantastic;-) Also we had steaks with potatoes - rather common food in every country of the world;-)
