      Change of plans.... hubby is going to be in the field and doesn't want supper so I am having bacon and tomato sandwich.

      1. re: vafarmwife

        Spaghetti and meat balls. salad, bread and jello. If I have time may make blueberries shortcake and ice cream. Made the meatballs from ground turkey instead of beef.

      2. Broiled porterhouse with a composed butter containing lemon, shallot and Italian parsley. Some sort of green bean dish on the side, and perhaps a bottle of zinfandel.

        1. Last night was our first dinner in the new place. Dad came over and hooked me up with a Brinkmann so we are grilling here until the first frost for sure.
          We christened the grill with a few veal porterhouses (my first ever) and some filet for a friend who wont do veal, no matter where it's from.
          On the side was fresh corn on the cob, string beans with garlic and sun golds and probably a few too many cocktails. Hey, it was a celebration!
          Love, love, love my new home Not sure who's happier, me or the kitten. We love the country and I think we are here to stay.
          Here's to all the great, fun cooking ahead!

            That is a VERY fine way to christen the new abode, rabaja! I hope you and the kitten enjoy exploring your new neighborhood. :-)

              Thank you LW! I took your advice and packed a Most Important box with the coffee fixings, the kitchen radio and all the other neccesities that make up a good first morning in a new place. Really priceless advice.

                :::very big grin::: Glad to hear it worked for you! When you're doing a house move in one fell swoop and can't make little trips back and forth with a few things here and there, the "Most Important Box" that gets tucked into your car is a lifesaver. Helps to make the new home yours. :-)

            2. re: rabaja

              congrats rabaja! looking forward to all your new food adventures!

              1. re: rabaja

                Congrats on your new home! Veal porterhouses on a pristine new grill - watching them cook up while sippin' on a few cocktails all while you host at your new home? Boy is that ever sweet living!

              2. I'm going to pull out a couple of home made turkey dinners out of the freezer (they have all the fixings - Sliced turkey, mashed taters, corn, dressing and gravy). When I cook a turkey and there is just the two of us, I love making these up for future use. Just pop in the microwave, no heating up the kitchen and a umm, umm good dinner.

                1. I'm thinking fresh Alaskan coho steaks while they're still on ridiculous sale, maybe on top of a "hash" of roasted carrots and beets and purple potatoes with ribbons of rainbow chard sauteed with bacon or pancetta. Or maybe on a bed of curly endive with bacon and a poached egg and some chives from the yard...
