Doesn’t this look yummy? Yeah, wish I could take the credit for this picture, but in all honesty, I can’t. As I mentioned before, my poor lap top is in the hospital for brain surgery. Until I have my own system up and running again, I am stealing pictures from the world-wide-web rather than down-load my own pictures. Still cooking, still snapping away, just keeping my pictures for another day. Maybe someday soon, I’ll go back and update with my photos.

If it’s Thursday, it must be Italian – or whatever Thursday means to you. I know this is going to sound crazy, but one of the ways I’m keeping track of the days is with the use of a weekly menu planner. It’s on the refrigerator. I have a little circular magnet that is moved from one day to the next. My family knows what to expect for dinner, and I know what day of the week it is and what I need to prepare.

There are some very scary things coming across my feeds – chefs teaching people how to make a grilled cheese sandwich. Really, just a simple grilled cheese sandwich.

Have I mentioned that I love – and I do mean L-O-V-E my Instant Pot. It just sits there, on a table in the corner of my kitchen, waiting to hum to life and bring us something delightfully delicious. You can do everything from saute to bake to pressure cook or slow-cook. It’s a one-stop shop for so many things.

I have been craving Chinese-Asian food. It is making me crazy. I don’t care what dish we have at this point – Lemon Chicken, Fried Rice, Beef and Broccoli. It all sounds delicious. Hubby and I were talking that I might need to whip up a giant batch of chicken and make different sauces – one Sweet and Sour, one Lemon and one Orange Chicken.

So very sorry I’ve been away. My computer (my life!!!) decided to stop functioning. I took it to a repair shop, they ran all sorts of tests, tried CPR and finally had no choice but to pronounce my baby dead. Thank goodness the hard drive was fine. Have ordered a new lap top, but it’s on back order (like everything else) and so I’ve been without a way to connect to the rest of the world. I’m using a friend’s system, so it will be a hit and miss since I won’t always have access, but I’m here for now. I’ve so missed everyone!

Happy Friday! For some of us, that means something – like the end of another grueling work-week. For others, Friday is just another in a long line of endless days. In our house, it means a meatless meal.
