Captain Crunch and a diet Coke. Oh, geez...

California lavash pizza(not their recipe, just their lavash). I use the California lavash original flat bread with a teeny bit of olive oil brushed over it, roasted bell pepper, onions and garlic are added. Then diced mozzarrella cheese and topped with a bit of pizza sauce. Bake in oven on foil lined sheet at 425 degrees, until the cheese is melted and the flat bread is a little browned. When it comes out of the oven I add chopped grape tomatoes and a few pieces of artichoke hearts. Yum, the whole thing is around 300 calories and I eat the whole thing.

It's tricky eating this, if you add too much moisture it will be soggy, but just a bit of olive oil as the first layer, and adding the pizza sauce as the last ingredient helps it to stay dry enough to cut it in four pieces to eat. Then I fold that one piece I am eating like a taco. Yep, I love my version of pizza.

That sounds good. I use sourdough rolls for my little pizzas.

We loaded up the fishing poles and tackle. Bought wheel bearings for bait. At least the car is quiet again. We ended up getting some fast food at the end of a long day at the mechanics.

Homemade shell mac salad for lunch, enough left over for a hearty "snack" plus with dinner. May add a can of corn and sliced green onions to it yet, but was craving it and ate it darn near plain for lunch!

Reminds me of the never-ending soups I make.
Always adding stuff to stretch it out.

Grilled cheese on sliced Italian bread. Organic, freshly squeezed orange juice. (Just kidding, a diet Coke.)

Not cheap tonight, going out instead of cooking!

Tonight I am treating myself to a fatty chuck roast cooked as a thick steak.
I am experimenting with a new steak cooking process.
I bought a double burner electric hot plate to use for smoking meat.
There is a cast iron skillet on it and a can with wood chips on the other burner.
This is all inside my homemade smoker heating up as we speak.

We shall see how this turns out, the steak/roast will be cooked as hot as I can get the big skillet outside in the smoker with smoke in it.
Rare of course.
They had an 18 pack of Heineken in the bottles on sale at the store so I broke down and bough it.
A fantastic beer for the hot weather.
I haven had it in maybe 30 years.

The steak/roast is in the smoker rubbed with salt and pepper smoking on a low heat.
I think I will hit it with smoke for about 30 minutes to an hour.
Then it will hit the frying pan to cook.
This should give it an off the grill taste.

Tonight, I'm cooking two 3/4" pork chops smothered in cream of mushroom soup and onions. And Mac & Cheese.

We bought the Mac & Cheese for our grandchildren, but as it turns out, they don't like Mac & Cheese... I thought all kids liked Mac & Cheese?

I wonder what mac & cheese they've had to eat that they don't like it? Does someone leave it crunchy or burn it? Even the stuff in the box is kid friendly.

As my mother would say, don't ask the kids what they want to eat. Just make it and if they don't want to eat it that's tough.


Tonight since it's Fishday another iteration of vichyssoise. I still have these two giant leeks and finally have enough potatoes and stock to accommodate them. This will be a big batch - over a gallon.

Hmm, come to think of it - their mother can't boil water.

You know I cant recall ever eating mac and cheese ever growing up but surely we did eat it.
What we did eat a ton of and I mean it was available almost every day was mac and whole home canned tomatoes cold and hot.
It seemed like there was always a never ending giant bowl of this stuff in the refrigerator.
Served at almost every meal.
Cheese was bought at the cheese factory 5 pounds at a time and my mother used it to make the best beef onion and cheese enchiladas this side of the Pecos.

The steak was finished in the house and I diced up some of my homemade brisket bacon lean end raw and put it on some baked potatoes.
Slathered with my homemade rosemary butter.
The bacon has been drying in the drying refrigerator since last weekend.
Thar are like atomic bacon bits.
