Omy Slate ate???
No...he wanted to but I saved the bowl! lol...he only got to smell it! hahaha.
Or is only looking???Oh Im first again lol
Yes, you are first! Where is Pat? lol. He will die I posted food two days in a row anyway. lol....
Yes two days with food lolI love your plates!
He'll survive! He does rhyme all the time, right? lol....
And we endure it and even keep coming back! Oh my! haha.
Great minds think alike! Joan came to dinner tonight (it was my turn to cook) so I looked in the fridge and found some stale bread, courgette, peppers, Frikadelen, chopped tomato left overs, grated cheese, onion and garlic. So I invented a meal which the closest name I could think of was a "Croque Madame Courgette Gratin" with perhaps a big hint of paprika in it ! Like you I didn't have a recipe, and I couldn't repeat it exactly. It was heavenly! Joan loved it.
I'm glad she liked it!The mister says my best dishes are ones I created in my head. ha.
A teacher at the Cordon Bleu said don't look up a recipe, go to the shops and buy the necessary ingredients. The best way is to go to the veg market, fish market, meat market, whatever, and buy the ingredients that YOU like, being careful to buy really fresh looking stuff. Come home lay it all out on the table, look at it, and INVENT something. (He must be mad!)
That's how I shop...and cook! I do occasionally follow a recipe but usually just look in the fridge and see what sounds good. I taste as I go along and add this and that. So, if he is mad, so am I. (and you!) lol....And I love the saying, "An empty skillet is a blank canvas."
Apparently this is the norm in France, nobody buys cookery books it seems.
You should write one! :)
Boy, does that look scrumptious! Rich and creamy. No wonder Slate was investigating. Yummmm.
It really was yummy....I'm sorry it's all gone! Well, one serving left that Alex want for dinner. I'll have to make it again..super easy!
Keith's concoction sounds good too!
It does, doesn't it? I can almost smell it. Maybe he took a picture.
I didn't have time to take a picture. As soon as I took it out of the oven Joan pounced on it and started cutting it up and filled her plate !
Well that's the best review right there!
I've never had corn chowder, but this sure looks good!
Oh, you need to make some! It's the best! I freeze it...tastes great in the winter.
Slate wanted a tasteDidn't want it to go to wastePoor Gloria missing meHere at your sea lolCarrots I will eatAlready turning orange at my street lol
Too many carrots can turn you orange!Then people will think you are strange.The mister works with someone that drank carrot juice every dayand that happened to him, much to his dismay.lol...
lmao, an oompa loompa at my seaIt is already happening a bit to meNoticed my hands against mr brothers the other dayHe is pink, I'm yellow/orange a bit on display lolOh wellWorse things at ones cell
I think you can even it out with something greenthen you won't look too obscene.although, I'd enjoy calling you an oompa.Laughing already, I tell ya.lol. Just don't start singing their song.Cuz that is just plain wrong!
Next time I give a part for some pedicuresI want to see your peachy toes for sure!
lol I eat tons of green tooBut also eat many a cashewSo between those and carrots at my seaThey can turn me a yellow/orangey
Well, you're just doing what you have to doso a little orange will look good on you.A whole new meaning to a peaches and cream complexionIs what I'd say, I reckon.haha.
Slate nearly made it his own!! He obviously agrees it looks absolutely delicious. :)
I'm so glad he didn't! I don't share my plate with anyone! haha.
Not even Slate . . . . or Me!! ROFL
Exactly! I'll gladly serve you your own but I won't share my serving. lol....
and quite right too . . . . lol
Unless you were a poor stray cat needing a home...haha....
Might disguise myself as a cat answering to Cuddles . . . . . lol
complete with whiskers? ha!
But of course . . . . gosh I'd be no 16 !!! . . . lol
By the way - I like your new shamrock header - very fresh and pretty.
Thank you! My little shamrock is doing very well! He wants a drink daily and if I remember to do that, he thrives! Thirsty little guy! haha.
That looks really good. I think dinner at your house must be wonderful all the time.I keep thinking we should eat sweet corn, and then at supper time I forget all about it.Maybe tomorrow.:0)
I try to make it wonderful! But sometimes it's just a dagwood sandwich with veggies and dip. (which tastes wonderful to me anyway! ha.)
That sounds pretty wonderful to me, especially if you make it. ha!
haha...isn't that the truth? Sometimes I say that...I'm hungry, I just don't feel like cooking! And if someone else makes it, it's a real treat!
Amen girls!Always nice to take a break from the kitchen....Your chowder looks great Betsy...I try and cook the same way...If it's in the fridge....it's a meal!Cheers!Linda :o)
I think it's fun to cook that way...and it uses up all the stuff in the fridge! My omelettes are that way, too...just toss it in there! ha.
Haha At dinner sometimes I would be happy OTHER make the food omy! BTW many times Esperanza at night cook by herself (veggie stuff) :)
Smart Slate the Kitty, this soup looks delicious! Such pretty yellow and white corn too.
The sweet corn farm had silver king and bi-color. Both were yummy....
I love corn chowder, seriously love! I put potatoes and chives in mine too!
I have done that, too!.....such a yummy combination of flavors!
this is something I have never made, it looks wonderful!
I bet you'd love it! :)
Hi Betsy, I love corn chowder and this looks so delicious. My cats usually NEED to smell whatever we are eating, too!!!Thank you for your kind comment on my post this evening. Your boys would have loved visiting with Kyle and viewing his train project. The guys were beginning to start on Christmas projects, too. It was a heartwarming afternoon.Thanks again and God bless you and yours.
It sounded like a great afternoon! Yes, I know my guys would have loved it! It's always so great to be able to put a face with a name! I'm glad you're showing yourself off! ha. :)
Thanks again and hope you rest soundly tonight.
I rested soundly, yes. wow...I slept so hard, I don't think I woke up once or even turned over! haha....
sounds like it would taste good...and be warm in my belly...which are two good qualities.ha
If it was blazing hot outside, we'd be waiting for winter to eat it! But it was just right and very yummy!
I didn't think you could ever say no to Slate. :-) Lynne in NC
hahaha.....I know! I tell ya, it's hard to do! And he usually asks so sweetly. His meow is quite soft and sweet. On the other hand, I have no problem giving Jack a little swat on the butt when he breaks the rules. lol....Not fair, I know.
Oh, hush UP! I haven't had breakfast, and we're headed out to lunch---I know I'm gonna overdo, especially if they have a good soup.rachel
Oh Betsy, I could jump into that pot of corn chowder. That looks so so so good! I think you could sell jars of it in your shop! We had so much fun at Myk's last night. Family time just can't be beat. Kaleb heads back to college, so won't see him for a while. It cool here today...a bowl of your chowder would really go good about now.
I am laughing as I am picturing Wanda diving into the chowder... with her new pink swim cap she was sent! :-)
I love when you can make dinner with "things on hand".This soup looks delicious and with our cool weather lately it would be perfect.
Looks yummy to me!
I'm serving coffee! Stay and chat!And no awards, please! Your comments are my awards!
