Tonight I made rapini (broccoli rabe) with Italian sausage and pasta. I also sautéed onions, peppers, garlic and salt and pepper to mix in. I always blanch the rapini in boiling water first. When I eat it I like to add lots of Pecorino!

I had grand and wonderful plans, and then my niece called to tell me she's having a CT scan tomorrow, and if they find the pulmonary embolism they expect to find she'll be going in the hospital for a week (which means instead of hanging out with her this weekend, I'll be watching the kids so her husband can go to work starting Thursday). My head was no longer in food mode, so I grabbed some frozen stuffed, breaded chicken breasts (Italian style), some frozen mixed broccoli and cauilflower, and a can of sliced beets and called it dinner. I often suspect we would starve on days like this if it wasn't for the microwave.

HOORAY!!! The official results aren't back yet, but they let her go home from the hospital after the CT scan. Now I can go hang at her house this weekend with her instead of babysitting the kids for five days! Sure, we still have to figure out what the problem is, but this is the third hurdle we've cleared on this particular situation, so I'll take the immediate celebration.
 
I did leftovers for dinner. Between waiting to hear from her and getting ready to watch hockey tonight, I didn't have time for cooking.

Well, here is what I planned to grill tonight.

I did and it all came out great! Pulaski franks and smoked kielbasa, Johnsonville brats, a couple of Bruce Aidell's portabella sausages and two skinless Best's hotdogs(for my one daughter who doesn't want that "snap"). I split the kielbasa to get a crunchy exterior.
When done, they devoured everything so fast, I didn't get a good after picture! This is all that was left!

It was like vultures had descended!

I ran away for a few days, which means I've been eating kid food since the short people have more power over dinner than the tall ones at my niece's house. Didn't figure I needed to report mac & cheese with cut up hot dogs, or PB&J with applesauce. But tonight after I got home I gorged myself on bread. We went to the farmer's market Saturday, where there are two different Amish bakeries. Dinner tonight was two pieces each of: Dill (white bread base), bacon-cheddar (sourdough base), and cheddar-pretzel. For dessert, a raspberry-swirl that felt like monkey bread in texture, with icing.
 
I'm all carbed out, and it was fabulous.

We had an early dinner.  I picked up salads at California Pizza Kitchen.
 
I had a roasted vegetable salad that was served with a balsamic dressing.  I'll order it again!
 
We just finished some cantaloupe.  Did you know there's  a difference in taste between those that cost $1 a piece and those that are $3?  It was sweet and delicious.
 
Sharon sprinkles it with salt and pepper and as long as she cuts it up and prepares it for me I won't complain.  It's not bad with salt and pepper.

I would like to think the people I like will be around for along time.

My entire family has always put a little salt on cantaloupe, from before the time there was prepared food (or at least prepared food that was readily available as it is now). It enhances the taste, and a light sprinkling of salt is actually not unhealthy.
 
*I assume it enhances the taste. I'm deathly allergic to the stuff and can't eat anything it's so much as waved hello to across the room.

Felix, my wife puts salt on Watermelon and cantaloupe, this is just my chance to throw a dig at Mar & Sharon...........Your right, going back yrs ago we never had the processed food like we do today. I guess we substituted salt for high fat. I would bet, because of convenience a lot of people cook processed foods now a days. I don't think there is anything you can't get in processed foods now. When I was going to Restaurant food show, I could not believe the amount of processed food available for food service...........It is here to stay, but, I am still going to kick Mar in the butt every chance I can............and she knows it................pnwc

I didnt know you had Lemon trees in your condo! ?
Lemons are awesome and can be used for a lot of things.  During the Summer we will make fresh squeezed lemonade from them.  They are also great for squeezing on fish, shrimp or other sea food items as well as many other things as well.
One of the GREATEST aspects of lemons are their healing power.......yep........healing power.
Besides Chicken soup being one of the best cold/flu remedies, lemons run a close first!  
When you are sick you take a whole lemon (cut into pieces) , put it in boiling water until the lemon all but falling apart and add perhaps a spoonful of sugar and drink the liquid as HOT as you can possibly stand it (NOT warm but HOT)  I guarantee you 100% that if you do this a couple of times per day for 2 days max that your cold/flu will be almost gone completely!

Living in the Country as we do we have been inundated with all kinds of creatures!  Rabbits were mainly the worst as they ate ALL of our veggies as well as many plants.  We finally managed to discourage them by sprinkling bloodmeal around the veggies and the plants they liked and it helped a lot.  This year surprisingly we havent seen hide nor hair (no pun intended) of any.
As to rats.........  OMG..............last year and the year before we had HUGE rats that we couldnt seem to get rid of!  I bought the big rat traps from HD and set them every day and would catch as many as 3 or 4 a day.   We finally bought those rat poison pellet boxes and set them everywhere.  That worked VERY well and seemed to get rid of them.  ONLY problem with the poison is that they eat it or bring it back to feed their young and then die leaving the dead bodies wherever the nest is!  Problem is that they die sometimes under the house and as they decay they stink to high heaven and unless you can crawl under the house to retrieve the dead bodies the smell lasts seemingly forever!  We put boxes of moth balls under the house to kill the smell but it takes awhile to work!
NOW...........we have a feral cat problem!!! 
IF we leave our Birdies outside a feral cat wants to get to them and eat them!  It even came in the house where the birds sit in front of the French doors for fresh air and try to get to them.   Feral cats are EXTREMELY dangerous, vicious and dont scare away easily as they have NO fear!  They hiss at you and carry MANY types of diseases.  This particular cat is about the size of a small dog!  
Havent figured this one out yet!  Animal control wants to charge $150.00-$200.00 to come out and assess the problem and to set traps!
Crap!

I just realized I forgot to post my shrimp etouffee recipe. Here it is. I also make it with frozen crawfish tails when I have them.
Shrimp Etouffee
1/4 Cup cooking oil
1/2 Cup Flour
1 1/2 lb. raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 medium onion finely chopped
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
4-5 sprigs parsley, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
Salt and Red Pepper to taste
 
Make a roux with the oil and flour. Cook only to a light brown color( I generally like mine, for this, the color of a paper bag when using crawfish and slightly lighter for shrimp).
Add the remaining ingredients. Cover pot or skillet and cook over very low heat for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until you see sufficient gravy. Since you do not add water to this dish, slow and low is a must. It really makes a beautiful gravy, almost like magic! So simple but so delicious!
I got this recipe from Pirate's Pantry, published by "The Junior League of Lake Charles, La". My husband is from Lake Charles and this cookbook was a gift from my Mother in Law who passed on many years ago. I really treasure it. I have to say, though, that my husband's etouffee is totally different. He doesn't follow a recipe but makes it how his Mom always did. And nobody can beat his gumbo, also, no recipe!

Cajun - had to look up vanilla cow tails, and now I'll have to find some. 
Felix - maybe I shouldn't admit this, but those lemon meringue pop tarts sound pretty darn good!  It reminds me of a comedy routine I saw by Paula Poundstone.  Here's a quote from it:
 
"Inside there are three pouches of two. This is what happens to me: I open the first pouch, and I eat one tart, and I enjoy it very much, as naturally I would. And then I feel, Well, I have to eat the second one or it will go stale. Well, now I’ve eaten two, and it’s no longer just a snack, it’s a meal. I figure I may as well eat two more. And then finally I’m just like, Well hell, I don’t just want two pop tarts hangin’ out in a box. I eat the last two just to tidy up, really." — Paula Poundstone, in her 1990 special Cats, Cops, and Stuff

Got out of work early today so I made a pot of spaghetti sauce. I used Cento canned San Marzano  tomatoes, fresh herbs, Italian sausage and pork neck bones.

Here is the sausage and neck bones. I used the meat from the neck bones to add to the "Squash Lasagna" I made for my husband who really needs to eat low carb as much as possible. I used both zucchini and yellow squash. To the ricotta I added fresh chopped chives, parsley and an egg. 

My son Kyle and daughter Emily had the sauce with angel hair pasta. Katie came home from work famished and declared she was so hungry she could even eat the squash lasagna! She loved it. I love a successful dish!
