Tonight is Texas straw hats with Fritos and baby carrots on the side. Either peppermint cookies or gumdrops for dessert.

So I had to look that up.  Is it really chili over fritos?  Sounds yummy!

It is!

Here's the recipe I used:

Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

A leftover roast is being turned into beef soup or cottage pie, depends on how it turns out.

Having my in-laws over.

Traditional black eyed peas and collard greens, both with salt pork. Smoked pork cushions, smoked brisket. We will have cornbread cooked in cast iron. We will also have a buttermilk Bundt cake with two sauces, a dark chocolate ganache and a spiced apple caramel. We have sparkling wine for toasting the new year.

Barley mushroom soup and large Greek salad. A month or so ago I started a new cooking routine.  I went through all my cut-out recipes and tossed anything that no longer appealed to me.  Then I organized them into folders (meat, veggies, dessert, etc.) and within each folder I clipped together similar recipes (tomatoes with onions, tomato salad, tomato casserole, etc.).  I already had my standard shopping list as a word document, organized by stores I usually shop in.  On one side, where there was still plenty of room, I listed the days of the week and left plenty of space after each day.  Now, over the weekend (or whenever I need to do a big shopping), I go through my recipes, find new things to try, and prepare my shopping list at the same time so I'm sure to have everything I need on hand.  When I make a new recipe I write in the date and comments, and put it at the back of the clipped together pages.  It had made cooking even more fun because every day I try something new and expand my range of techniques.

Tonight will be either taco soup or chili. It's in the 30s!

Yes, soup for me too!  I saved the ham bone from Christmas dinner and made split pea soup with ham, carrots, onions, and celery.  It's my absolute favorite.

We ended up with taco soup, a few more ingredients than chili, and a bit brothier.

Tomorrow night will be homemade ramen with chicken stock, 7 minute eggs, and vegetables.

It will be below 0 for me tonight. And it will be leftover comfort food: skillet lasagna, green peas, butter pan rolls, and leftover Christmas cookies.

We’ve had multiple meals this week made mostly or entirely from things I grew in the garden.  ;D Stir-fried patty pan squash (awesome and now on our regular menu), roasted zucchini and gem squash with cheese, and a couple of lovely salads with rabbit ear lettuce, sorrel, purple beans and cherry tomatoes.  :-*

Excuse me ma'am *taps shoulder* are you reminding us that is SUMMER in the Southern Hemisphere when we are stuck in Freezmageddon (TM) here in the Northern Hemisphere? *gives librarian glare* AND *taps foot*

Ah, yes... yes, I believe I am.  :P :-* >:D. If it makes you feel any better, we’re having a bit of a heatwave right now and are sweating inside with the aircon and fans going?
