Came home from work. Dinner is …. hot dog! sigh... I took out 2 eggs to scramble. Olive oil, fast burning the onions, cracked the 1st egg and automatically dumped it into the pan before I realized it smelled rotten... and now black/brown gooey stuff in the pan, quickly cooking. sigh... dumped it... Lesson learned. I dumped each egg in a bowl before dumping it into the pan with my onions burning. Took the boiled weiner and 'fried' it in the pan after I was done with the egg. Browned it (ahem... fire was too high so it's actually burnt a bit.) Corn chips. And I'm eyeing oldest sis fudgsicle... for 3 days now...

2 nights ago, sis made 'dinner'. It was hot dog and can of chili. That's fine. I like chili dog with lots of onions and Tabasco. To help fill me up and last until breakfast, I had a can of soda with 'dinner.'

Lastnight, I came home from work. Hot dog for dinner. I don't like hot dog. I remembered seeing at lunch that day at a Filipino restaurant at the mall. I thought it was strange that they put sliced weiner dog on top of their spaghetti. Hmmmm… I found a microwavable spaghetti in the freezer. Wow... Hot dog does go with spaghetti. Who would have thought?

Tonight, I came home. Guess what's for dinner???? Hot dog. I ate 2 hot dogs (drowned with Tabasco), corn chips and a large cup of ice tea. This is one time I wish we had ice cream.

I'm making lunch/dinner tomorrow. I can guaranty you 150% that we will NOT be having hot dogs.

Thanks for telling me how to make the Potato Supreme smeshque.and I think I'd like the hamburger in it too.It really does sound good and simple too.
And I don't think your'e weird at all because you enjoy getting creative with your double crust pies.I know you bake everything you do with alot of care and love.
Good luck with your dinner tomarrow and all your pie orders ahead~

Lu- I am not sure there is a pie I haven't baked. I do make an apple pie, and a caramel apple pie. Today I baked some walnut, chocolate cream and pineapple pies. I have a long list of pies for Monday and Wednesday. From pecan, cherry, apple, coconut, and I can't remember the list right now, but you name it I can bake it. Any bread or pie or cookie. Well, anything baked, I do enjoy baking it is kinda therapy and I get to be creative with the crust when it's a double crust. I'm kinda weird I know. :)
And I am so blessed that I am not drawn to all those sweets or I would weigh 500 pounds.
I like more savory and spicy.

Potato supreme- so you boil potatoes whole. Then peel them and grate them. You mix them with sour cream and layer it in a dish alternating potato mix and cheese. However, DH likes it with the addition of hamburger, After you layer it you top it finally with cheese, and bake it until it heated thoroughly and all cheese is melted.
It is quite delicious for such simple ingredients.

Don't normally cook so much, just getting ready for tomorrows dinner for Mom, and then the orders we get, of course is a blessing, but always seem to come when my plate is super full.

Hope you all had a good day.

Lu- have you ever tried potato supreme?

I just had some black beans for dinner, with some avacado and chipotle sauce.

Just now getting finished with cooking the last batch of Tamales. Made close to 100. Some pork, spicy pork, and venison.
Will be baking lots of pies tomorrow. And got another order in today for 12 for Monday. This time of year is our biggest pie time. Thank the Lord.
But, with the cold weather it's a good time to do this.
I am super tired.

A big juicy hamburger patty on a bed of salad and grilled onion. No buns. I feel full but not bloated. Cutting out carbs helps.

Sendhelp, I’m on your vibe.

Roasted 3 squash this a.m. (1 acorn and 2 unidentifed. I belong to a CSA and I’m not always 100% sure what’s in my bi-weekly haul!).

Peeled and chopped a butternut squash, then parked it in the freezer for future fun.

Now I am roasting Brussels sprouts.

Come evening, all I have to do is cook the pork chops and heat up the side(s) of my choice.

The extras will serve me well this week. Trying to save $ and calories by packing my lunch and avoiding the workplace cafeteria. 👍🏼

I love taco bell and my favorite thing there was the 7 layer burrito. But I have found a new favorite, the veggie power menu burrito. It has black beans and some veggies and it is so yummy. That was my dinner.
Mom had a chicken quesadilla, and Dh had a double from BK
Just didn't want to wash dishes tonight. :)

Polarbear- that is even the case with gum. I was chewing some gum and thought this tastes weird. Read the ingredients, it was aspartame I was tasting. The only gum I have found with no aspartame is winterfresh flavor, not a big fan. But what is the deal with all the aspartame?
Anyway, maybe its the case with the candies you tried as well.

Tried a few pieces of chocolates the kids brought home from trick or treating: snicker, reeses, kit-kat, almond joy. They all tasted off. Not sure if my taste buds have changed, or the candies were old, or the quality/taste just got worse from what I remember. Only took a bite of each and threw away the rest.

I wouldn't be surprised if the better ingredients have been switched out for something less expensive.

Low carb has gone out the window since I am awash in sandwiches (although I did freeze most of them), cakes and assorted yummy squares. I figure the faster I eat up all the sweet treats the sooner I can get back to a healthier diet, but I suspect there is a flaw in that plan🤔

Perfect CWillie! Just perfect!
I will get some cheap cooking wine to tenderize and add flavor.

Yep, there was NO FAT on it!

Thank you!

Cut the roast into bite sized pieces and put it and the gravy right in the used roaster and pop it in the fridge. Tomorrow add in a good amount of tomato sauce (some wine or beer would be helpful too) and whatever spices you prefer and then slow cook it even longer, either in the oven or on the stove top (watch it doesn't stick). Near mealtime add back the veggies you didn't finish, or toss in some new ones, or both... this should make a tasty stew, or if you add more water or beef broth a hearty soup.

BTW, a good pot roast must be made with a lovely fatty piece of meat, modern lean roasts will never be as tender or flavourful and are best served rare to medium rare.

I knew that I should not have cooked that beef roast in the oven-roaster pan.
It was tough, the pan may take days to clean up, and the kitchen.....
Potatoes, carrots, onions, celery.......tasting mediocre. It has been awhile, so I had to borrow a cup of flour to make the gravy.

It was so bad, dH and I were laughing. Then, there is the leftovers. I could puree it for soup?

Now, there is a bee trying to get into the kitchen through the screen door.

Does this mean I should stop trying to cook?

The upside? Leftovers for three more meals. Or downside, because I hate leftovers.

That sounds so good, Johnjoe. And nutritious.

...

I'm having peas for breakfast. It's the only thing in the refrigerator besides condiments. I need to do a big grocery shopping trip to stock up at new place but I haven't done it yet. I've been living off of take out, delivery, fast food, and of course work food on days I am there.

The sight of a completely empty frig and freezer after 3 weeks is a very sad sight, though. lol I'll know I'm over the hump of having a new place when I'm cooking and eating out of my own kitchen again.

Bacon & cabbage with a white sauce consisting of lots of boiled milk, onion and garlic and a good soup spoon of cornflower to thicken and potatoes. So many choose to strain the cabbage water down the sink when it is cooked but I save it to drink when cooled also for making soup or sauces next day. All of the Iron is contained in the cabbage water.
