    I make yogurt at least once a week and save the whey. Sometimes I use it to make ricotta, but today I thought I try it in a marinade, was wonderful. You are suppose to be able to use whey as a buttermilk substitute, I am trying out a few ideas.

    Y'all r killing me with all this great sounding food. . If anyone is close to a Just Save. They have a great buy on boneless chicken fillets. IMO. Anyway.

    Busterone, your dinner sounds great! Did you make some homemade cheese? I'm wondering how it is that you have whey?

    Burgers here too tonight at DW's request, maybe on a piece of Texas toast since we don't have any rolls. Veggie mélange for a side -- now that sounds good, doesn't it? LOL AKA a little of this and a little of this veg from the fridge. Hopefully DW will eat it if I grill them.

    Grilled chicken marinaded in whey, garlic and herbs, mashed potatoes, petite peas in butter sauce, homemade rolls and homemade chocolate ice cream.

    Faye~I was able to make the burgers yesterday, but I couldn't bring myself to eat one.....so I had Chipotle instead which I did enjoy :)

    We're having burgers...hopefully on the grill. If not, in the oven. Maybe a salad and fruit.

    OK, you all have me craving burgers, now. Think we'll grill out this weekend!

  • trichardson0621 Jul 16, 2015

    I am convinced - thanks to YBAVERAGE2003- I am doing Cheeseburgers on the grill with onions and garlic- and maybe fry some squash and zucchini from the garden

    Last night we had hand made burgers with sweet potato fries and potato salad.

    Tonight I pulled out boneless pork chops may do creamy pork chops with mashed potatoes and veggies.
