You guys are going to accuse me of compulsive behavior when I say I have 200 cookbooks.

Next time you grill steak, do extra. Then a day or two later, slice the grilled steak thin, melt some butter in a frying pan, add chopped onion and chopped (preferably fresh) tomatoes, cook until the tomatoes start to moosh, then add the steak. Season with a little garlic salt (Use Lawry's garlic salt- seriously the best tasting garlic salt EVER!) This is holy cow good and stinkin easy.

I am having him pick up pork steaks! They are on sale!

No dairy for me, I am very allergic to all dairy products.


But the chicken breast baked in salsa sounds yummy!! My neighbor places a whole pork tenderloin roast in the oven covered in salsa and lets it cook all day.


Going to have to get some more chicken breasts! That is usually my go to meal if the family is eating something I can not have! So I need more ways to make them then just plain grilled. Most red meats make me sick to my stomach so I always need chicken around for myself when the guys want a steak.

If nothing is thawed, make breakfast for dinner.

I keep homemade broth in my freezer, chicken and (currently) smoky, which I made from trimmings from the last bunch of smoked meats. Thaw broth, and start throwing in things from the fridge. My guy didn't think soup was a meal when we got married. Almost (May 29th) 13 years later- he'll ask me to make soup. Yay!

I keep cooked meat in the freezer, too. DH likes a salad with way too much meat in it. (By this, I mean he takes a nice large pasta bowl, puts chicken, ham, turkey, etc. in the bowl, boiled egg, if we have them, shredded cheese, chopped tomato, onion, then sprinkles a little salad on top, and covers all with a layer of French fried onions (the green bean casserole onions?) and a squirt of (British) salad cream. I keep trying to convince him more salad, less toppings, but I'll never get him to believe that.

Pork steak, seasoned however you like it, baked on a rack (I have 2 sets- each has a round pan and a rack that fits inside). Naturally, I line the pan with foil, since HE is supposed to wash the dishes. I cook chicken wings on the same racks.

The breasts in salsa are fast- depending on how big they are, 40 minutes to an hour? And you don't get a lot easier.
Try the pounding flat thing, too, they cook almost instantly. I have a meat pounder, but you can use a lot of other things instead.

Many of those in my collection also.

Many, many, many baking pans. Someplace, I have a ton of pillars and stacking layers- silly, since I only ever made one wedding cake!

I have lots of top of the line stuff from a small chain of gourmet cooking stores (5 stores) we used to have in MI. I hit the annual clearance every year and bought tons of stuff. When they went out of business, I bought mega amounts of stuff, including gently used things from their demo kitchens. For a person who is not a chef, I probably have more tart pans than any one human ought to have. I love those bottoms that lift out! And stoneware!!! People rave about my chocolate chip cookies- it's just the Toll House recipe, but made in a stoneware bar pan. What a difference it makes!

I've decided I am going to have my DH start selling off some of my cake pans and pillars! They are taking up way to much room in the house! Will keep my round sets of pans but want to get rid of the weird shaped stuff.

You know like the tear drop pans, flower shaped, ovals, etc!! I have all those sets for cakes!! Then there is the masonite boards for underneath the cakes!! Wow, lots of those too! Have lost some over the years to people who will not return them! I always add them into the price of the cakes just in case!


I gave most all of my shaped character pans to one of my DIL's! I think she sold them off! In my beginning days of cake decorating I thought I needed those! Not the direction I went, did more wedding cakes and cheese cakes!

Yup. I have one of those really huge storage totes with wheels, the size of a deck box? FULL of Wilton pans. I used to make those a lot, but not in years. I really need to weed out, sell off, clear off stuff I don't use.

(Then I can take any money I make and spend it on more craft crap!)

Goodness Ann and Melody - I'd be sunk if my DH didn't like casseroles! Thankfully, he isn't picky and is happy to eat most anything I give him because I really don't like to cook. I can cook but I don't like to, I just like to eat! Once in a while I'll give him a bad time and ask him why he doesn't cook because my dad did the cooking in the house I grew up in. He liked to cook, go figure! So I'll tell my DH that they say you marry someone like my dad so why doesn't DH cook?! That said, DH is like my dad in many other good ways. He's a keeper!

Oh and Pat - you are full of cooking ideas! I have the hardest time thinking of things to make, probably one of the reasons I don't like to cook! Last night I threw something together, a little of this, a little of that. My DH and oldest DD asked me what I was making and I told them the appetizing name of slop! lol They liked it though.

Kathy, you're not alone. In my neuropsychological report it's mentioned as well. Not to your degree, I am so sorry to hear you struggle with it, and believe me, I didn't know or I would not have been a bit humorous about it. My daughter, the one who has the ptsd, collects pens. One entire rim of a purse is lined with possibly 30 pens, and she counts them constantly to make sure they are all there. And so, since I put my foot in my mouth accidentally, I will now leave the subject alone.

I've been reading up on alcohol ink techniques. I have a few bgs I want to try. Unfortunately I still have this throbber, and DH's efforts to talk continuously are making it worse. I didn't make it out of the house today. Verizon got a lucky break.

My DH does the cooking, and since this psoriasis crud I am on such a strict meal plan. And I'm getting sick of it which is why I snuck a cookie. And paid for it. I finally convinced DH he could eat his bowls of chips and his cookies and it wouldn't bother me. So, I bought a bag of Reece's peanuts butter bits. And hid them. You know, I eat one or two and I feel better. Because they are there, I guess.

Kandie, you did not offend me at all! My son also has ocd. He is a checker. He constantly opens and close his wallet to make sure his bankcard is there after shopping. Sometimes I have to tell him I see it, its there! He locks a door, then turns the knob several times to make sure its locked. To look at us you wouldn't suspect a thing. Its a hidden in the mind thing. And I just deal with it and go on. Most days are fine!

Kandie, my tablet is Verizon too, although contract is up and I dropped the plan and only use WiFi now. It is a great little tablet, but the worst tablet ever, too! Its hard to explain but I'll try. The tablet has app space and tablet space and this one came bloated with preloaded apps. All stored in app space. So my app space fills up quickly and it gets to the point where I can't continue with it because app space is full. I have tablet space, but it will not allow me to move their preloaded apps to tablet space, which has tons of space! So, every five to six months, I have to reset this to factory settings to clear out the full bloat and start over. It is a pain to factory reset because then I have to put in my YouTube subscriptions all over again, my SCS password and setup to how I like it. The tablet itself has been fun, but I will soon be looking for a new one, and possibly a bit bigger. And definitely not one on mobile plan.

Shirl - thanks for the love on my 50 is a Blast birthday card. Oops, I think that might be the second time in recent history that I've enabled you! You're welcome....lol.

Kathy - I'm not sure what you mean by tablet space in your description about your tablet issues. My DH thought perhaps the tablet space is a memory card? Not sure though.

Just going through all the chatter, and of course I had to address your question Ann, although it is too late for tonight. But I think I have said it before: The best thing I make for dinner is reservations"...lol,lol.....


We actually did go out for dinner with friends tonight. A fish and chip place. But I had a piece of steamed salmon and ceasar salad.....And it was good.

Kathy, on your Verizon tablet, that's exactly what's happening to mine. Too many preloaded apps. All kinds of problems and only after 3 days. Sooooo, here I am, back on my old iPad, lol, and the expensive tablet is on a shelf because I'm disgusted with it!

Twenty-six degrees cooler this morning than yesterday, and we're getting the rain soon that some of you have had for two days. I walked out to get the paper and whammo a headache right above the eyes. Straight to the medicine cabinet for Benedryl. Ouch.

Okay I'm off to see what the challenges are today. But first, has anyone heard from Victoria? I haven't seen her on here for two days.

Our name for the one pot thrown together dinner is Glop- which I picked up way back in high school from my 2 friends (their mother was my mummy- she said I was her daughter from another mother).

Lucky for me, my Mr. Picky loves casseroles and glop, and soup, too.

No, tablet space is memory on the tablet itself. There is a slot for an SD card but the way its set up, I can't transfer anything from app space. If I could, I would be a happy camper. I went online to discussion forums and everyone complained about it. I've had it two-three years now. Its great up to the point of filling up quickly with bloat. I disabled a lot of the apps so they don't pull in more data to fill it up, but those apps can still be used. If I could delete or uninstall junk, it would be great, but they don't give that option.

I got a lovely belated birthday card and Hawaiian calendar from her this week! My friend stopped by and was admiring the card she had sent!

Good morning!

Kathy - so you can't delete any of the pre-loaded apps either? Can you tell I don't use tablets? We have a couple of them but I don't use either one. I'm sure they can be wonderful to use but, when I have a laptop or Macbook at my disposal, why not simply use the bigger screen?


Kandie - boo to the headache! Is it due to the weather you think?


Shirl - that's OK, I'm helping you build your next order! lol As for making reservations for dinner, I like that! Although there was a time that I actually got tired of eating in restaurants. I didn't know that could happen! When DH and I moved to Southern California, his employer housed us at a hotel for the first month while we looked for a place to live and they gave us an eating allowance. We actually got tired of eating out during that month and, towards the end of the month, we were buying things we could eat at the grocery store!


I'm thankful it is Friday! Today is my day off. Actually, I just switch to unpaid work at home...thankful not to head off to work though! However, we have friends coming over for lunch tomorrow so I have to menu plan and cook....maybe I'll get some card making in. I made 10 of the 12 needed cards last night for thank you cards to my DD's teachers and the staff at her school. The other two cards are going to be different, a little more special because, sadly, they are for two people who are retiring. She is sad to see them go.

Catherine, no I can't delete or uninstall any of the preloaded apps. If I download any apps on my own, I could remove those. But t cannot uninstall the ones they've preinstalled. If you Google ellipsis 7 for android, you might find all the forum complaints. I would have thought that any newer tablets they would have fixed that by now. Like I said, I think mine is three years old.

Kathy I think that is crazy that you can't uninstall any of the preloaded apps. New computers come with a lot of extra stuff on them too which is why my nephew and brother built their own computer the last time they got a new one. Then it wasn't slowed down by any extra stuff they didn't want on there!

It looks like you can remove the apps on your device. Search: uninstall the preloaded apps on your verizon tablet using root

Or search "getting rid of bloatware"

I did see one tutorial on uninstalling without using root too!

Hello I'm back and with a new iPad instead of the Samsung Note I had this morning. I went to Verizon with my list of complaints and they fixated on one item and told me over and over other ways to do it until I held up my hand and told them they were giving me a headache. I said you're not LISTENING, that's only ONE of the things wrong. Long story short, turns out I'm the first person to buy one, even the techs haven't tried the Samsung yet, so they didn't have a clue on how to fix the problem. I now have an iPad which is what I wanted in the first place but they SAID they didn't have any in stock. Par for the course.

It is so very cold and raining here. A/C on last night, and heat on tonight. Is there any doubt why people are sick or have headaches. Sheesh.

Yay Kandie! I'm glad you got what you wanted. It is unfortunate that they don't just do the right thing to begin with. That said, perhaps they got a shipment of iPads in the interim between when you got the Samsung and today. At any rate, glad you have what you wanted!

It is in the 80s here today and headed to the 90s early next week...

Yes, but in order to do it you have to download an app or two and there is no room to do that because of all the preloaded junk! Its a vicious cycle!

Kandie - come on out, we have a fifth bedroom with its own bathroom. You just have to share the room with some boxes...

Hmmm, I'm not much help with San Francisco weather it is so different from ours further inland! On the very rare occasions when we head that direction in San Francisco in the summer, it is hard to remember to take something warm because it is always SOOOO hot here in the summer but not usually hot there.
