:worship:...Just checking in with the recipe gods!!!!
Thanks Kathy for the link to our new home.


Got my grocery shopping done today. DH watched Luke and I took Emma with me. Don''t you know DH got called in for work while I was out shopping. I scored some great deals at Walgreens...I save $32 with sales and coupons :goodvibes ...and only ended up spending $37. I was so proud of myself. My big deal was a jumbo pack of pampers and a box of wipes for only $6.22...see that little things that make this mom happy!!!

When DH gets home we are going to take the kids for a ride, and pick up a brickoven pizza at a local grocery store. It is better than some of the pizza parlors around here.

Aimee, the shrimp were good. I did play with it a little. I had more shrimp so I doubled the recipe. I did not double the salt, or cayenne pepper and I added a tsp of lemon pepper to it. I thought the pumpkin spice worked in place of the allspice okay. They did have a nice kick.

Gretchen & Kat, thinking and praying for you girls and your families. :grouphug:

Gretchen, picturing Hailey showing up next to you made me smile. She seems like a sweetie and just missed you!;)

liamandcaili 08-02-2009 06:43 PM

Hi Everyone,

Gretchen -- Cancer is so cruel. :hug: Your story about Hailey made me smile.

Kimmar -- My mom didn't make the fritters today. She grated the zucchini then steamed it, squeezed the liquid out then put in a pie plate. To that she added salt, pepper, parmesan cheese, two eggs and chopped up basil. She baked it at 375 for 45 minutes. My dad and BIL loved it.

Dinner today was really good. Becky took pictures. We had grilled striped bass that was served over grilled tomatoes and fresh greens that were tossed in a balsamic dressing. Becky made a pesto sauce for the fish. YUM! My mom also made eggplant sticks and the zucchini dish.

Gretchen - I forgot to mention that picturing Hailey next to you made me chuckle, I just adore that girl.:lovestruc

Honeeeey! I'm Home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!! I found you!

I caught up! Whew!

Kat- Keeping your Sil in my prayers. How is Johnny holding up? I feel so badly :hug:

Gretchen- Hailey made me :cloud9:

Ann- how was Emma on the shopping spree?

Laura- the zucchini sounds yummy.

Dinner was scallop scampi over Angel Hair with a green salad. I bought gorgeous sea scallops yesterday so I seared them off in olive oil, added thm to a scampi sauce.

I don't have good measurements but
1 pound sea scallops
1/4 large onion minced
2 lemons, zested and juiced
3T minced garlic
pinch chili flakes
chopped parsley

1 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 T corn starch
salt and pepper

olive oil

Saute onion, garlic in olive oil and butter, add chili pepper, S&P and cook.
add white wine and lemon juice and zest. reduce

add chicken stock to make enough sauce for pasta and simmer. thicken with corn starch and chicken stock if desired

Sear scallops on both sides and add the seared scallops to the sauce.
I finished the saue with butter and chopped parsley. It was delicious!

Hey All, I am here!

Just got in from taking Andrew to Williamsport...what a gorgeous facility! I will post some pics soon. I just cannot get over the place AND it was not that expensive: $475 for 5 nights.

Gretchen, Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. I am all to familiar with the pain and misery that cancer causes. :hug:

Hailey is such a precious girl...give her hugs for me. :cutie:

OK, who is the poll boy?

BBL...gotta get some stuff done...Mom comes tomorrow and I go to see cutie David Cook!

I know. Can you imagine how much more pleasant bathing suit shopping would be if you truly did not care what others thought? Instead of mine, where there is a three glass of wine minimum. :laughing:

:rotfl::rotfl: The scallop scampi sounds wonderful, but scampi is something I have to order out. Kenny doesn't like "citrusy" sauces. Picky little bugger he has become.

That is a good price! We paid right around that for Patrick to attend hunting camp two years ago and I swear when we drove up I thought to myself that the place looked like a Vietnamese POW camp. I remember thinking to myself that I wasn't leaving him there if he didn't want to stay. He loved it, but it was a far cry from Amanda's 4-H camp where they had swimming, boating, rock climbing, and other fun activities.

And we got a good laugh about you labeling A's things. Although maybe Aimee is right. If I had done that with Patrick's, maybe he would have worn more than the one pair of socks he wore over the 5 days he was there. :scared1:

Gotta run, my dog is pawing at my typing hand indicating that she is requiring my attention. ;)

Glynis 08-02-2009 09:11 PM

I found the new home! Now I just have to go back to the old one to read and catch up.

Things here continue hectic! I didn't even cook today. Alan went out of town, and between getting him ready to go, and getting all the rest of us ready for church, I was too exhausted to get anything going for dinner. Instead, the kids and I went to KFC. It hit the spot, and that's about all I have to say about it.

I'm hoping to do better this next week. I do have 2 barbecues this week, one on Thursday and one on Friday. Then, we pack up the family and the tent/trailer, and leave for a week long family reunion. I'm not sure what the meal plans will be while there, but it will involve a traveling smoker and a night of fish.

I'm going back to catch up, now. Hugs and pixie dust to everyone. It seems like we all need it. You are all in my prayers!
