How about those little stuffed peppers - cut them in half. Mix cream cheese, grated cheddar and bacon or sausage (chopped fine), some green onions or chives. Fill the peppers and heat!

I have just had serious dental work done so am on soft foods but I LOVE daydreaming about food any time.
One of my fave things to do is to start with a large pot roast, traditional..potatoes, carrots. The second day I make Bob Evans style pot roast sandwiches. They are delicious. I use texas toast instead of sourdough. the 3d day becomes vegetable soup with the remaining roast. the sandwich recipe is online and really, I swear it is tastier than the first day roast. anyway, Texas toast, pile high roast and julienne carrots, grilled onion,(on top) american cheese.(on bottom) horseradish, if you want to spice it up. I don't. It's a fork and knife sandwich and very filling.

I'm telling ya! Once something goes into my freezer I never want to see it again. I'm finally learning to either give it away or divide it among the dogs, but freezing stuff is a waste of time.

I went to a local bbq place yesterday and got take-out for a homebound friend and I. It was wonderful - I am glad it is too far away to go to every week.

I like taking a piece of pork shoulder (boston butt) and cooking it in the crock pot. Can season with anything you like ... put garlic cloves inside etc. I use about a half cup of apple cider vinegar in the bottom or sometimes apple juice and just let it cook. I will turn it over halfway thru.

By the end of the day you have perfect pork for pulling/shredding and can add sauce to for bbq sandwiches (after draining most of the liquid but leave a little)

OR ... you can cut/slice it ... if you want before its done add onion, carrot, and potatoes for pork roast.

Any way you like it ... i love it!!!! LOL

I did a pot roast yesterday.
Came out really good.
I really like my new pot I bought a few months back. it worked great for this.
brown it, remove from pan set aside. Cook onions and carrots a bit in the juices.
re add the meat, added some beef stock and some left over wine (I froze it in a plastic baggie.....worked great!) and set in the oven at 350 for 2 hrs. Then added the potatoes (roughly cut up) and let it go for about 45 more.
Super yummy and we have a ton leftover so no cooking for at least one more meal.

oh forgot, I added a bunch of garlic slices by stuffing it in cuts I made into the meat.

Not long ago I made a pot roast and added a small amount of hearty red wine and it was really good. The next one I doubled the amount of red wine and it was much, much better.

I only used mushrooms, extra onions and potatoes as the veggies though. That is unless you count garlic as a vegetable.

I generally keep some kind of chianti in the house is that a good one to use?

Yes, chianti would be good. That is what I wanted to used, but I think I used Merlot since I already had some in the house.

I was actually stunned at the difference it made.

Also, I ONLY use canned beef broth - I do not use water. I think that made a big difference.

I browned the onions and mushrooms and well as super browned the meat.

I put in 1/2 the browned onions at the beginning, but added the rest and mushrooms near the end and the potatoes at the very last and only enough for each meal.

I know and it is very salty but I really love it!! I'm starving and nothing is actually making me want to cook!!! I hate going thru the process as I can barely eat a bagel. So a full meal forget it.

I also keep chicken noodle soup cans and add a whipped egg - sort of like egg drop soup and I always buy the double noodle stuff and some times add a splash of lemon juice.

I make shrimp/sausage gumbo yesterday and it was great!
