Happy Mother's Day to you all. Is someone else doing the cooking for you today?
Our son doesn't live near here so I shall not be seeing him today but will probably have a phone call from him later and that's just fine with me. This week we shall have some pork ribs that I cooked yesterday, long and slow in the oven. There was enough for 3 meals for us in that pack so 2 meals worth will be frozen for another day
Ravioli last week was quite good and I have another meal's worth in the freezer, all ready to go. Tilapia and new potatoes and maybe asparagus. I saw the sign to our local asparagus farm was up yesterday when I drove by the end of the road I'm sure that's a little earlier than usual.
I know we'll be out for a planning meeting for our garage sale later this week and dinner is included in that and there's another meeting one evening which leaves very little time to eat so I guess that would be a tomato soup and cheese sandwich night Haven't made anything with ground beef for a while so that could be another night and a pasta night would fill in the week.
How about you? What will you eat?
Good morning and A Happy Mother's Day right back at you,
DH is out finishing up seeding the last field right now. He plans to be done by noon. That means we will get back into a closer to normal schedule around here and I can actually cook up some of what is in the freezer.
We're heading out for a family BBQ later this afternoon to enjoy this glorious sunny warm day. Burgers and potluck salads on the menu.
Plans for meals this week include
sweet and sour pork, stir fried veggies and rice
salmon loaf, baked potatoes and green veggies
smothered pepper steak and salad
mushroom stroganoff over linguine
an impossible pie with all the bits and pieces from the fridge.
I'm glad there's a lot of the prep work done. This promises to be a full week with farm chores, garden planting, a big delivery day and a weekend sale to prep for.
LETS HEAR MORE ABOUT THAT IMPOSSIBLE PIE!

Because of the oral surgery I am still on liquid & soft food diet but hope to have the crowns for the dental implants by the end of june. chewing some real food sounds really good. I've about had my fill of ramen noodles, pasta ,jello, pudding mashed potatoes & watermelon. the good thing is that I've dropped another 15 lbs & my triglycerides dropped another 100 points !!. I've lost about 70 lbs in the last 18 months & not done yet. still got a ways to go. all this good food on Budget living menus sounds especially good when you CAN'T eat it!
The impossible pie is made with a baking mix (Bisquick), milk, eggs, shredded cheese and whatever else you have-- diced ham, bacon, crumbled meatloaf, etc, leftover veggies, tomato slices. You get the idea. It is never the same twice. It is similar to a crustless quiche.
If you can chew pasta, I'm sure this would also be suitable. It would add variety too. Way to go on the weight loss and the points drop too. Keep it up. Once the oral surgeries are dealt with, I'm sure you'll fully enjoy a 'full chew' menu.
so, are you saying you put all of your left over scraps into a pie plate & then pour the bisquick mixed up over the top?
Here's a couple of variations I have in my collection of recipes that I found quickly for you, doogle. Hope they give you the idea. Easty to change it up, depending what you have around
