    A cooler day yesterday so some REAL cooking for dinner... spinach and Jerusalem artichoke pasta, sautéed shrimp with black olives, capers and cherry tomatoes for Johnnybird oven roasted chicken breast, Spanish rice and a small salad for me scrambled eggs with toast and some aged cheddar for John's second dinner about 1030.........

    Johnnybird stands with both of you....of course we know better......
  3. Meatloaf sandwiches

    John has one more piece of ground chicken meatloaf left. It is going into a sandwich for travel tomorrow. Lightly toasted gluten free rye bread, a thin smear of mayo on one side, some romaine, meatloaf and then, on the other slice of bread - a thin layer of honey cranberry mustard. Alas I am at the end of the last jar of the honey cranberry mustard. Me - I like my meatloaf warmed then on toasted white bread with Miracle Whip on one side and ketchup on the other.
  4. Taco Bell 2014 -

    Only two with hot sauce for me.....about twice a year.
  5. Spring soups: prepare ahead of time & freeze

    I second tomato bisque or tomato rice soup and vegetable beef(I picked up 1/2 pound of store roasted beef yesterday to make some as it is cool and funky here). How about a spring minestrone with some of the asparagus and peas?
  6. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Ohhhhh.... a Manitou visit?!!! That cauliflower cake is really calling to me. Maybe minced, oil cured black olives in the mix? will have to ponder this.
  7. Dinner 2017 (Part 5)

    FINALLY found a purveyor who is able to supply really fresh fish so had some flounder last night. Soaked for half an hour in some milk, coated in a mix of corn flake crumbs, herbs and Wondra flour then pan fried. Deglazed the pan with some white wine and then added capers and some parsley. Baked my piece in the oven. Served with plain boiled potatoes.
  8. Farmers Markets 2017

    We are scheduled to get our very FIRST farmer's market here in Jefferson Township. The sad part - for me - is that one of the moving forces, Tom Galfo, I had in storytimes at the library when he was 4 and 5 years old. "I'm getting old, Gandalf..."
  9. Since I can't get weck rolls east of Syracuse, I've been making them myself for years. My recipe comes from the Stern's book and includes potato boiling water as well as mashed potatoes and the caraway seeds in the dough itself. Now I'm experimenting with 1:1 replacement flour.
  10. The youngun' is obviously suffering from 3rd child syndrome....when the 3rd child thinks that they are as large as the older two and can keep up!. Are you heading straight up to Buffalo or working your way around the bottom of Erie? Just asking because would love to see you check out beef on weck at Schwabl's if you are going through Buffalo.....check out the buffalo farm down in Edinboro, PA....or maybe some walleye if you hit Port Clinton OH.. I would kill for that spaghetti and gravy........

    Or as I prefer when cooking for myself...I defer to our third president and use meat as an accent Host's note: for the next inspiring segment of this extended topic, click here.
  12. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    Friend of ours visiting over night....and dropping off his puppy for a week visit with us. Sent him off after a breakfast of tea and honey and an egg sandwich with turkey bacon. uh....and a small piece of egg MIGHT have accidently on purpose dropped on the floor for Angie to find.
  13. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    One of our friends just dropped his puppy for a week visit at The Aerie. He spent the night and it was still hot so simple stuff - bison cheese burgers, Park's best dogs with some beer sauerkraut, potato salad, coleslaw and gluten free macaroni salad. Lots of All Day IPA for the guys. Dry weather front went through last night and now instead of 89 F we MAY hit 62 F. I have some chicken I pulled off a rotisserie bird (after making a couple of sandwiches to send Mike on his way). I'm going to cook some noodles, sauté some mushrooms and make a chicken noodle bake - topped with the rest of the bag of chips I sent on the way to the Carolinas. I also pulled a container of Lactaid cottage cheese out of the freezer.....by Monday it will be drained and will sub for ricotta in making some manicotti with homemade bison ragu...along with a small lasagna to go into the freezer for John.
  14. Sicilian Baked Sausage

    I WANT THIS NOW!!!!! unfortunately Johnnybird doesn't like Italian sausage............ohhhhhhhh......maybe chicken Italian sausage
  15. Foraging for favorites

    ohhhhh....... out checking some bluebird boxes and I was transported back to my childhood. In an odd spot I found some wild asparagus and was able to harvest 8 thin stalks. I brought them home, rinsed them well then ate them raw.
