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  Grin

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.

I try to keep some canned stuff I like (corn, beans, peas) and then try to buy fresh stuff when I know I'm going to use it right away.

I bought some of those produce bags, I think they are called green bags?? I 'll find a link for them. They really do work. I Also have a lettuce keeper, I'll find a link for that too.

Hngdoolett, we have a very local dairy that still sells their milk in glass bottles. It tastes so much better this way and I don't even like milk.
I LOVE milk out of glass jars, it's much colder that way, tastes far better!! I find buying half gallons  if it is in paper or plastic seems to help with the flavor. that or I am just nuts  lol.
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's your weird guilty pleasure? on: August 13, 2008 11:07:34 AM
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

I am used to people thiking I am WEIRD!!

The kick I have been on lately, Sour dough pretzles & baby carrots dipped in a mix of mustard, hot sause & celery salt.  UUMM   
Popcorn with celery salt & hot sauce, eat it with a spoon so you don't get hot sauce on fingers  lol.

What's on your shopping list every week??      What's on your shopping list every week??  I'm getting into a rutt, again.
Here are my staples:
I check the local adds to see what meat is on sale, then decide which of the stores I will stop at that week. We have 4 grocery chains, I don't do more then 2 a week, more like 2 every 10 days or so.
I get stew meat, chicken breast or thights, maybe a turkey breast, chops if they are on a good sale, same with cube steak or steak tips or a roast.

then each week I buy: baby carrots, a mellon or two, juice to make flavored ice cubes & to make home made jello,  loaf of bread or sandwich wraps / tortillas. a bag or two of frozen veggies (usually one bag mixed then a bag of lima beans, or peas or green beans), granny smith apples. if i have been good a pint of ben & jerrys, sour cream, fresh berries if on sale, yogurt(large tub of plain low fat & a few small serves of flavored), skim milk, vanilla soy milk. fresh veggies.   bags of salad mix & baby spinaach.  1/3 pound or so of deli tureky or ham to top salads with.   sour dough pretzle nuggets.

staples I keep stocked up on: Extra virgin olive oil, spicees (sea salt in grinder, pepper in grinder, parm cheese in grinder, parsely flakes, garlic  minced in jar, whole garlic when onsale, Chinese 5 spice, cinnamon, ) white rice, brown rice, whole wheat pasta,   cereal (LOTS of cereal I mix a plain cereial (grape nuts, cheerios, rice crispies) with a sugar cereal (fruit loops, cinnamon toast crunch, cinnamon life.), also stock up on Special K red Berries, Special K Chocoalte if on sale.  butter (cut sticks in quarters & freeze in zipper bag), vinigar.  knox unfalv gelitin packets. canned tomaotes & tomatoe paste.  stewed tomaotes.  jars  & cans of picekles & oilives. chick peas.  lemons & limes if on sale or juice  or true lemon & true lime.   mustard, honey, hot sauce.   pop corn kernals.  tea bags  & herbal tea bags. (loving Lipson Pyramid Teas, get when On sale & with coupon.)

wow.  I guess I do keep alot more on hand then I thought... just hitting a rutt with my cooking....
