Rottenlittleboys that soup sounds gread, think I will make a batch of that next week. =)
Last night I ended up having oven baked sweet pototo fries & green beans. My neice & nephew came to visit and ate my ham steak. lol they are like bottemless pits.
Tonight is prob gonna be a slice of pizza & salad. Working a double from home today 9am - 12 mid ... so I am calling for delivery.
Sat my neice & are going to do some cooking, she likes to try to put together healthy meals form stuff from Dollar Generall or Dollar Tree. She is getting pretty good at it too. Getting better with spices & stuff too. Sunday my other nieice has requested that we make muffins & rice crispy treats. =)
My DH got called to leave town for a last minute business trip so I made chili/cream cheese chip dip and vegged out on the (new) couch while watching the Olympics. Life isn't too bad without him around!
Every once in a while my best friends daughter will "cook dinner"f or us. She will make that chilli dip in a pyrex pie plate in microwave. And we wil have it for dinner. We justify it because we use celery & baby carrots to scoop copious amounts of chili/creamcheese/chedder mix inot our faces. Hey we are eating it with celery so it must be ok. lol
It's sausage meat rolled up in puff pastry, brushed with beaten egg, then baked. Maybe it's a british thing...?
PinsnNeedles that looks reallygood. I will have to try making those. One with a salad wouldn't be so bad a meal!! They I go justifying again!!
JLoveG & RottenLittleBoys: what do you put in your meatball soup & Taco soup?
Last night I had more roasted green beans & a couple pieces of stew meat. Then latewr at a freinds house we had peaches & vanilla ice cream.
I tihnk tonight will be sweet potoao fries & a slice of grilled ham. prob more green beans too.
margarine and soy sauce on rice crispies baby food deserts (bananas, hawaian delight, etc.) the people at work think I'm REALLY strange.
I like a bowl of dry rice crispys with a dash or soy & a shake of hot sauce, mix it up & eat with a spoon....
Baby food desserts I like to mix with warmed up left over rice, makes a good pudding like thing. LOL
