Wow, there's a lot going on here!
Debbie, I am so so sorry about your dad. My dad will be 87 this month and I can't help but feel like we/re on borrowed time, although he's doing pretty well right now all things considered. I'm glad you can spend some time with yours and I know he is too.
Deb, it's good to know that things are better for you. Hope every day gets a little easier.
Carrie, I'm so sorry for your loss too. Pets leave such a big hole in your heart. Our dogs died 3 years ago and I still can't bring myself to bury their ashes. They are both in a wooden box that DH made for their toys. I think about them every day.
Seaside, thanks for thinking of me. We're not anywhere near the immediate flooding (thankfully). In fact, although the forecast called for it, we haven't even had much rain the past few days.
I definitely want to be in the audience (one of the select few who gets to taste the stuff) for Susan's cooking show, but what I really would like is to be a fly on her kitchen wall!
Here's a bright spot, my mamm yesterday was all clear. Hip hip hooray!! Next scanxiety is blood work and meeting with the new mo next week.
Boy, the tomato crop is really rolling in now, forcing me into action. But I have to decide what action. Roasting is definitely in order and I probably should do it while temps are on the cooler side. There's always sauce, of course. Oh well, I'll think about that tomorrow. The cucumbers are well behaved and produce only two a day for picking. That's easily managed since they're not pickling cukes. I eat one by myself daily. The zucchini, not so much. It's time to start looking for unlocked cars on parking lots. We picked a mountain of beans green beans, many of them bigger than I like. They'll probably end up as a good ole southern style cooked to death in in some kind of pork fat dish with some ham and cornbread. Awesome.
Tonight is grilled pork steaks, caprese salad and the last of the sweet corn. I scored a good deal on some baby back ribs at Costco yesterday so I'll get a chance to try the pressure cooker method again when my house guests are here.
I know I missed someone. I love reading about all the meals you all have prepared (yours too Bedo lol). I have a question for you Carol, how do you decide which of your cookbooks in your vast collection to take in your motorhome? I know you don't have room for all of them
To anybody I missed (((hugs)))
