Bubble and Squeak is a mix of previously cooked potatoes and vegetables, mixed together and fried in a small amount of oil and butter, until it forms a crust of crispy gorgeousness, best served on Boxing Day (day after Christmas) with cold meat and leftover stuffing, pickles and other random goodies. Excellent stuff. Not the healthyiest option foir everyday dining, but as a treat ocassionaly, yummy. Mike had cooked a roast pork dinner on Sunday, so the boiled potatoes and brocolli, cauliflower and kale were used up the following day. The spelt bread was bought in a supermarket, made from spelt flour, and very tasty

"History of Spelt
The official name of spelt is Triticum aestivum var. spelta. Spelt was originally grown in Iran around 5000 to 6000 B.C. Spelt has been grown in Europe for over 300 years, and spelt has been grown in North America for just over 100 years. Spelt is often used as a feed grain for animals. However, it has gained popularity as a dietary grain due to its nutty flavor, high protein and nutrition content."

Hey y'all! I am about to fix up some Jumbalaya for my sweet hubby who had a birthday this week. I use chicken, german sausage, and a few additional veggies with zataran's mix. What are you ladies cooking up lately?

I have been enjoying my new cook book, "Cook this, Not that." Here are some of my recent creations (most from the book):

Wow, Jess, you've been going to town!! Those look good! I seriously doubt my picky granddaughters would eat any of it, well, Haley might eat the top one (the blueberry dessert).

Billy, belated happy birthday! I hope it was a great day, and wish you many more happy, healthy years to come.

DD got some fresh kale the other day (she is getting fresh veggies from a lady about 1/2 hour north of here, but she and the girls can't eat it all - now I will eat a little bit of cooked kale mashed in with potatoes, but prefer spinach. Hubby LOVES kale.

Last night we went out to eat at a bar near out camp, but tomorrow I will make tenderlions, potatoes and veggies. (and there is ice cream for dessert!!)

I've been pan frying steak a lot this summer. It just seems like the perfect thing. I buy petite sirloin tips (I think that's what they are. lol) and pan fry them up in a bit of olive oil and butter, seasoned of course. Then I make home made mac n cheese and a big salad.

Meat salads are also a big hit right now. Either beef or chicken.

And chicken strips...those are always a welcome dish in this house though. LOL. I swear my younger two could live off them. I buy a package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Cut them into strips, dip in whole wheat flour mixed with cornstarch and seasonings, dip in egg, then back in the flour mixture. Fry. We eat salad and fruit with them on the hot days.

I have been the same way Midge, for several years. I used to love cooking, but I think I burned out on it for a long time. I have only recently been getting back into the groove of cooking quite a bit and so I am enjoying dusting off my apron!

Dorian - I do chicken strips the same way, when I do them. I only make them once every few years since I avoid frying things at all costs. But it is Billy's favorite thing I make (and I make my own honey mustard) and so I have to do it every now and then!

Gerda - Thanks for the birthday wishes! It was a good one for him, I think.

Here is what I made for breakfast Saturday and Sunday. When made with the waffles and syrup the book recommends, it is actually good for you! For Billy I might actually use honey next time, but I can't stand honey so syrup or maybe fresh fruit always for me.

Jess, that bears a strong resemblance to an "uitsmijter" (literally translated, it means, toss it out! LOL) - In Holland they put a sunnyside up egg on ham, then that goes on bread or toast (no cheese that I know of, and no syrup, of course). I make that for Bill the odd time, I like my eggs with the yolk broken and thoroughly cooked or scrambled, I think Haley would like it too. I'm not sure about it on a waffle for them, then again, Haley does experiment a bit (just like my son used to do).

I'm not sure what I'm making tonight, depends on the heat.

OK, back to sewing!!! Swimming lessons are over for the day, no girlies around!

jess, all your pics are of recipes you made from the "Eat This, Not That" cookbook?  billy LOVES chile rellanos (sp??) and i am wondering if he would like yours . . . it seems all the mexican places here make chili rellanos different - the pepper is chopped up - not whole.  the pic of yours looks like what he orders from our fave Cafe Ole back in batesville . . . could be worth getting that cookbook to give him that surprise!

Nope, the Chile Relleno was all me. Here is what I did:

Peel two Roasted Chiles. Cut up some chicken, onion,  and garlic and cook in a skillet with a bit of olive oil. Add a couple of spoons of sour cream and some shredded cheese (I like white cheese, but many would use chedder here), and maybe a dash of milk to the skillet and heat while stirring until warm and smooth. Layer one chile, then some of the chicken mixture, then another chile, then more chicken mixture.

Sorry I don't have any of the amounts, I was just winging it with some leftover stuff. It was soooo good! I don't like the chile relleno's that have all of the breading and you loose the pepper. If you want, you could add a La Tortilla Factory corn toritilla that has been warmed in a skillet to the layering - that would give it a healthy bread layer. Good luck!

When I fry foods, I use a little bit of olive oil. Just enough to keep them from sticking.

I am curious as to what kind of syrup the book you refer to, says to use. You say it's healthy? 

For breakfast we've been eating a lot of homemade granola. My guys eat a bowl before going to work out in the woods, they say it sticks to their ribs for longer, and gives them more energy, than a big meat/potatoes breakfast!

OIC Jess.

On tap for tonight is left over beef roast beans. A left over beef roast and all it's juices make for a REALLY good pot of beans....not really a summer meal, but...oh well, it will be excellent with a pan of corn bread.

Pork chops, baked potato, and a fresh green salad.... that's what's for dinner tonite.... oh, and I picked up a pint of fresh strawberries today, so I might have a spot of vanilla ice cream with some of them.
