I’m starting to wrap up slow-cooker season so I decided I needed to get the rest of the recipes posted.
Someone, who shall remain nameless, is contemplating getting the grills out.
Soon, I hope.
In the meantime he’s been wrestling with rocks / boulders in my potager.
Photos to follow.
As usual, I gave this a stir half-way through cooking … Continue reading.....
Remember when Stuffed Green Peppers were a thing of horror?
Usually over-cooked, limp, bitter green peppers with a rather tasteless stuffing, featuring Minute Rice, smothered in faux cheese and tomato sauce, they were not a favorite.

I use shredded potatoes or brown rice for my quiche crust why not pasta for a pizza crust?

I may have mentioned in the past that mon mari’s least favorite dinner night is Friday.
Or so he says.
We have fish or seafood on Friday – because that’s the day I do the shopping and I like it fresh.
He maintains that he ‘hates fish’ although I have proof that he doesn’t. I’ve even seen him order it … Continue reading.....
When one makes a leg of lamb, and one is only feeding two, there are lots of leftovers.
First we had the risotto.
Second we had this stir-fry with a Greek twist.

Men are from Mars; Women are from Venus?
I don’t think so….
I think it’s more like: Men are from Pluto; Women are from Earth.
How can a simple, straight-forward conversation go so awry?
We weren’t discussing anything technical, esoteric or even the slightest bit complicated.
