We had this over pasta.
Had I been ambitious, I would have shredded the pork and added it to the sauce.
Mon mari added sambal oelek to his.
I didn’t do that either…..
Apparently I’m easy to please.
I stirred this after about 4 hours, but if you just give it a stir 30 minutes before serving it … Continue reading.....
Traditional Stuffed Green Peppers are one of the more maligned dishes that grace the American table.
In many cases justifiably so.
I have seen Stuffed Green Peppers in cafeterias and diners that don’t even vaguely resemble anything that I would want to eat.
And I have tasted some that lived up (or should I say down to) that image. … Continue reading.....
In the spring garden I have lettuce, spinach, radishes and chard.
In the summer garden I have tomatoes, green beans, summer squash, onions, sweet corn and chard.

You may become a convert to this wonderful … Continue reading.....

I also froze lots of red Roma’s, which are all gone.
Actually, everything is almost all gone.
I put all the pretty colored tomatoes to good use over the winter. I used the orange in a Smoked … Continue reading.....

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 bought new house phones yesterday.
That would be the 'royal we'.
Mon mari couldn't be bothered to look at them. As he refuses to answer it if it rings, he didn't see the point in actually attempting to render an opinion.
Since he knows nothing about phones (not having used one in years) I concurred.
The phone we … Continue reading.....
