1. Chili that i started yesterday

I'm going to add a bottle of beer and cook it another hour or two. It smells incredible. Maybe the best batch ever!

2. Ham, lol! Grilled ham and cheese with leftover black bean soup.

I have lots of good cheese to choose from and the soup was excellent.

I think I am going to freeze the rest of this ham, though.

6. Courage!

A big batch of scalloped potatoes (and ham) should just about get you through it.

7. Thanks for the moral support! I actually have what I need for scalloped potatoes.

I can almost see the light at the end of the ham bone.

8. Hey, Lucinda!

Howdy C&B! This afternoon we went to the supermarket and Mr. Pup was seized with a craving for hot Italian sausage spaghetti. I also scored a beautiful 5.5# duck for another time! :whohoo: I made meatballs from the sausage, browned them and deglazed the pan with a good dose of Montepulcianno, then added tomatoes and tomato sauce, basil, oregano, and onion and simmered while I tossed a quick salad dressing using fresh cucumber pickle with lemon juice and turbinado sugar then used that mixture as a base. The salad itself was green leaf lettuce, tomato, brined artichoke hearts and toasted pine nuts. We splurged on a baguette, and toasted half of it with garlic butter and shared that. Nice glass of red wine...but, no room for dessert. Good thing, too, as sorbet was $5.15 a pint! Hope your weekend was what you wanted and needed it to be!

9. Lutefisk and Lefse

We took my Mom (91!) again (year 3) to the annual Sons of Norway, Lutefisk and Lefse feed in Van Nuys, CA.

They serve the lutefisk, meatballs, boiled red potatoes, cream gravy, peas and carrots (really? Is that Norwegian?), pickled beets, rye crisp and rye bread AND lefse. Dessert was a shortbread cookie, an oatmeal/raisin cookie and a rice cream (I think it's this, Norwegian Risengrynsgrøt) with a bit of berry sauce (lingonberry?).

LOVE the lefse...NOT so much the lutefisk!

...bought 6 bags of lefse for the freezer and the holidays.

And, it was fun!
