I am trying, Dan :-)

so for tonight I have supper already planned for the menfolk..... Yesterday while prepping supper... I came up with a new idea for a meat rub/seasoning... I am always playing with my herbs and spices... I came up with a greek style blend which will be great for lamb/chicken/beef or of course game meats. I have rubbed up a nice thick 4" cut prime rib steak overnight which will hit the grill for todays supper. Along with greek salad, lemon potatoes, dolmades, stuffed zucchini, mediterranean bell peppers

for me: not too sure... I think it's a play it by ear (or stomach) day ... Hoping to tollerate some soup broth with protein powder
Ali I really feel for you, cooking all those great dishes and not being able to have any, if I were you i would be serving them sardines on toast with some mayo and onions LOL I actually like it myself.

Better yet, ask Alison for an invite......

It would be one of a handful of memorable nights in the past while for you! Will Alison's banter (never mind the cooking!small wink) and Peter and his tales, you WILL be in for a fun night!!

Had some ground moose fried up with onions and Anaheim peppers both fresh picked from my garden along with roasted root veggies (also fresh picked). The veggiee were onion, carrots, beets, onion tops and both red russet and yukon gold potatoes all cubed up coated with olive oil and tossed with a mixture of tasty spices. This was baked a 350 for 1/2 hour and yum, yum.

we have an open door, open invite policy..... if you show up near supper time, you get fed....always a chance we have extra and if not, something is easy to add

Wow. Like wow ok
that is a 30$ plate!
aww thank you ;)

I find it therapeutic to prep, prepare, cook, and serve a dinner.

I am positive that Alison finds solace in cooking. :Oh Yeah!:
you bet Dan, when you not able to do much else and need to feel like you have accomplished something....... cooking has always been something that I have loved to do..... I am very happy in the kitchen (just wish at times my kitchen was bigger) but I am happy when I am creating something scrumptious

Now do I here $40.....:popcorn:
is there an auction............. lol

I love venison hamburger. My wife made a wonderful meal with a mixture of venison hamburger
cooked in creamed mushroom soup and added finely chopped carrots, green beans, tomatoes,
onions, peas, new potatoes (all of them out of our garden) celery, and a bunch of spices.
We had a salad from our garden as well with lettuce, beets, onions, radish, cucumber, raspberries,
and blueberries. We both ate too much so had to skip our desert of fruit salad topped with ice cream,
leaving it for late this evening. No wonder I've gained back the weight I had lost earlier this year, lol!

Woooo so havin a bit of a rough one this week... Decided today I would just cook up the meals for the rest of the week in case I don't have the energy, somethin just kickin my butt the last couple days... Doc said it would happen once in awhile....

made up a huge batch of boneless/skinless teryaki chicken thighs, a grain medley of brown rice/quinoa/lentals/barley brown butter risotto, quick stirfry vegies for the menfolk supper tonight

tomorrow they get frikideller (danish pork meatball), red cabbage, garlic mashed potatoes, smoked onion gravy, green beans

friday is italian sausage and gnocci, ceasar salad, garlic bread

plus I have 2 pork shoulders in the smoker driving the neighbours bonkers.... Lol lol

Ive been busy today...... Not too shabby for someone who feels like death......
I just figured at least if I have the bulk of everything done, all the guys have to do is heat and eat.....

You should be slowing down a bit Ali, you don't need any complications :Hi:

Tonight we are having a Scottish dish called mince, it's ground moose browned with onions then water added just to cover, after about 30 minutes of simmering add chopped carrots, cook for another few minutes then thickened with bisto and then poured over mashed potatoes.

Last nights supper we simple but tasty. We had the last of my home grown broccoli and cauliflower under a homemade cheese sauce, home canned sockeye salmon on a leaf of lettuce that was also from my garden and a fantastic salad (homegrown except for the tomatoes and almond slices).

I'm really enjoying the bounty from our garden this year. Everything grew so well.

Our garden didn't fait too well here Phil! Denises small raised garden did well with green onions, lettuce, kolraby (sp?), radishes etc....

We did have our first feed of Romano beans (home grown) last night with fresh potatoes (ours), fried mushrooms and rib steaks......

Young zuke fresh out of the garden, sliced length wise and on the bbq!!!!!:Oh Yeah!: One of my favorites!!!
I like to cut them length-wise and then make little slits in the meat, into which I drizzle some olive oil and then sprinkle S&P over the whole thing. Let it sit so that the olive oil gets absorbed and then meat side down on the Q to mark it. Then flip over and let cook slowly until tender. Mmmmmm

OK, I'll bite.

My daughter is down visiting with our new 7 week old grand daughter from Ktown while her husband attends BCWf board meeting over the next three days in Richmond. I kept a nice trout yesterday from the lake I was fishing to do up on the barbecue. Threw on some mini new potatoes with green onions, mushrooms, grape tomatoes, and dill, as well as some grilled corn on the cob. Served with a spinach, feta, fresh blueberries salad. Delish!
