    Glad to be back.

    Yes they did. :woohoo: Not sure how the leg is, I haven't heard from his mom yet today. He want yesterday for an MRI then the Dr. decided he needed another view so they had to go back at 7 last night.

    Need to get back into cooking now that things have calmed down. Last night I got a calzone from Wegman's.

    We put up 5 quarts of Salsa this past weekend, and here are the pictures...

    12 pounds of tomatoes

    [​IMG]


    Blanching them in hot water

    [​IMG]

    peeling tomatoes is so much fun....


    [​IMG]

    Finally all of them peeled

    [​IMG]

    Next they were cored, and chopped and placed in a pan

    Peppers were washed then chopped and placed into the pan

    Along with dehydrated garlic, onion, salt, and pepper

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Boiled and simmered

    [​IMG]

    Then canned, and I don't have a picture of the finished product... :(

    At least it does not contain nuts, so no nut allergies can be blamed..

    Chicken cordon blue (from a box, frozen)
    Corn from the farmers market

    Sounds yum!

    And some nights, that's how we roll too. Only with fish; not chicken.

    Almost every other night is fish! :lmao:

    I buy the frozen ones - usually tilapia or salmon, stick it in a baggie with Italian dressing overnight, then grill it outside. So easy even I can do it!!! :)

    PIO I am sorry you are sick, hope you feel better soon. Glad to hear you are sleeping and taking care. :hug:

    This recipe is so easy and every one loves it. I sometimes roast more than one and use the chicken for salads, tacos anything I can come up with.

    Roasted Rosemary Chicken

    Ingredients
    1 (3 pound) whole chicken, rinsed & cleaned
    Sea Salt & Fresh ground pepper
    2 fresh lemons (cut in half or quartered)
    1 small onion, quartered
    Garlic cloves (to taste)
    1/4 cup chopped fresh rosemary
    1 Tablespoon very finely chopped fresh rosemary (for outside of chicken)
    Olive oil
    1 cup Chicken stock

    Directions
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    I cook mine in a roasting pan with a rack to have a crispy bottom. Rinse chicken and clean, then season inside chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Stuff cavity with the onion, lemons, garlic and rosemary. Place chicken in roasting pan or a 9x13 inch baking dish.
    Rub outside with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic, finely chopped rosemary, salt and pepper. Pour chicken stock in bottom of pan and cover. Basting as necessary.

    Roast in the preheated oven for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Cooking time will vary a bit depending on the size of the bird. Remove lid of pan and let brown. Be sure to let the chicken rest for about 15 minutes prior to carving.

    I sometime add potatoes, carrots, and/or other veggies to the bottom of the pan and place the chicken on top. Wonderful moist chicken with whole dinner in pan.

    How sweet :hug: I do the same thing...in fact my mom died today several years ago. I need to make a Red Velvet Cake from scratch. ::yes:: She use to call it The $200.00 Red Cake. Used Swans Down flour. Ahhh memories!

    Thank you Alison. I will check one of my Barilla boxes. The family member used to make her own pasta for filling. :thumbsup2 It was fantastic...lots of work but oh so delish.

    :rotfl: But I eat nuts and am one too!

    Oh Brandi you are sending us each a jar of your salsa right? You have my address. ::yes:: It looks so good.

    Marilyn - Hope you have good news about your godson soon.


    Brandi - LOVE :lovestruc your food porn.


    Ann - Thanks for the Chicken recipe.






    WFDT? Surprisingly, I have some chicken maryland defrosting on the sink at the mo'. So, it might be a version of Ann's Rosemary recipe. I normally do a similar thing for roast chicken; only I use tarragon instead of rosemary. But as I have rosemary growing in my garden and no tarragon, looks like it will be a rosemary chicken meal tonight.

    DH will be getting something with shrimp for dinner. I might go take a look at Brandi's shrimp recipe and figure out if I have most of the ingredients in my pantry or not.

    I often eat Chicken Cordon Bleu from the bos, if it's the same one, it's pretty good and easy! :thumbsup2 Sometimes I get the one stuffed with broccoli and call it that I have both my protein AND vegetable! You have gone above and beyond the call of duty for a balanced meal!

    It must have been the ban on food porn that influenced the idea. Since we've had some "bootleg food porn" (no telling your DH), we KNOW you can cook! :rotfl2:
