It has been raining on and off today, so not a good day to grill. So, I guess we will have a broccoli beef stir fry for dinner. My sewing machine and I are having a play date, so I may not get around to making a sweet for after dinner. The house trembles at the thought of no sweet...

Macaroni & cheese and fried hotdogs, cooked on top of the stove. Oreos for dessert!

Thank goodness for the gas stove. We've been without power for 12 hours due to high winds, just a couple minutes ago it came back on.

Remember, if it rains on your picnic it's also raining on your garden!

Ramen soup....can't wait!

Dried shittake mushrooms are in the crockpot now, turning into condensed mushroom broth.

Kombu has been soaked, ready for the broth to work it's magic.  

Somen noodles lined up for their separate pot.

All the fixings....bamboo, pea shoots, carrot, mung beans, water chestnuts, shredded pork for the non-Vegans, Chinese garlic leeks and portabello mushrooms slices.

Who said Vegan food is boring???

Tonight we are having Asparagus with lemon fettuccine. It is a Weight Watchers recipe my friend gave me years ago. It has a nice lemon zing and a creamy sauce for the fettuccine and lovely asparagus tossed in. If you follow points, I think it is 7 points. Still have lemon meringue pie for the sweet.

Oven 'fried' chicken (coated in corn flake crumbs), green beans, baked beans and buttermilk pie for dessert. My mother would have a fit watching me serve 2 things that say "beans" in their name. I don't get it, but she thinks it's wrong somehow.

I (sorta) have a farm in Africa.

Rain is tapering off. Guess I had best think of something for dinner. Hot Turkey Sandwiches with a side of green beans, bacon, potatoes and dill in the pressure cooker. And the last of the lemon meringue pie.

Trying a new recipe today for Black Bean Soup:  http://bevcooks.com/2013/02/beery-black-bean-and-pork-soup/.  My slow cooker is too small for it, I think, so I'm going to do it on the stove.  It will make a ton, but I can bring some to my mother; I'm starting to suspect she isn't eating enough, since she doesn't have anybody but herself to cook for now.  :(

Hamburgers and potato something or other.  The other day when I was at the store and wanted hamburger meat they were all out except for the 73% stuff and the delivery truck was stuck in Missouri because of the storm.  I bought a chuck roast and today ground my own hamburger meat with the help of DH.  May have to do that more often.

This was what we commonly did when I was a kid.  For some reason, chuck roasts were frequently on sale for a price much lower than the decent ground meat so mom would stock up on roasts and we all pitched in to grind and freeze it in various forms, some pre-made patties, some meatballs (pre-cooked, nearly ready to serve) some bulk in her favorite size packages, and now and then, (and this made for a REALLY long day, mixed up and filled inside green peppers, which were then frozen individually on a tray to be bagged when they froze, then taken out and baked by the number needed.  Home made sauce poured over just before baking.  Lots of work, but easy and relatively fast meals when needed.

Sometimes it was boneless, sometimes it was bone in, if it was the bone in that was on sale, we had a big pot of soup too, not to mention happy dogs !  smiley-puppy
