    This week my DH is on his own. I'm back in DC for a week.

    Everyone - it sounds so much better than my half a cold cut sandwich leftover from lunch.

    Isn't it wonderful when they cook.

    Jdouglas - I'm glad to hear the Naughty Princess earned Frosty Paws each night. Now maybe she can have some frozen green beans?

    Hey everyone! I'm back from our wedding at the beach! Thanks everyone so very much for all your good wishes, congratulations, and kind words! I was truly overwhelmed. :)

    My now Official DW and I are having -- what else -- mac & cheese with broccoli since I don't think I saw her eat a single green thing with the exception of one salad the whole time we were away.

    Our Princess of Naughty pup was very happy to welcome her newly hitched mamas home, too, especially since it meant she got sprung from her own vacation at the pup resort even though they did give her Frosty Paws every night for being so well behaved! ;)

    GEOHERB1- that ravioli sounds delicious! Do you make those, or buy those locally? I've never had ravioli stuffed with sweet potato- yum!

    Honey is cooking , having beef roast with gravy, new boiled potatoes, peas, and sliced cucumbers in vinegar. We have been blessed from our friends giving us squash, cucumbers, and other vegetables lately. Love some fresh vegetables

    I bought my first whole chicken from the farmers market yesterday and it was the best chicken I've ever had! I poached it and shredded it and we had chicken salads last night, and will have again tonight.

    Then with the carcass, I made chicken broth in the crock pot overnight for minestrone soup tomorrow. The broth also came out amazing- I used basically "leftovers" from past veggies that I stored in the freezer- a fennel top, several yellow onions outer layers (including skin... which makes for a rich deep colored broth), fresh parsley, fresh thyme, 2 bay leaves, sea salt (I ran out of pepper, but normally would use peppercorns). The best broth EVER! I especially love the depth of flavor with the addition of fennel.
