    Barbiedoll, is there any chance we can have your wonderful recipe for the oatmeal raisin cookies you made for the swap in December? They were soooooo good! If it is a family or special recipe you would rather not share, I totally understand.

    Thanks. :)

    DW has made herself canned soup twice already this week, so I don't dare offer soup even if it is homemade and it would be a perfect night for it. I have 2 more packages of chopped meat from HT's ground chuck sale, so tonight I think I will make the rest of it into meatloaf. We'll have one tonight with pierogies and something green, and the rest will go into the freezer. I don't often have cooked, ready-to heat and eat things on hand. Usually it is just ingredients, so it will be nice to have something I can just pull out with minimal work needed.

    I'm having leftover goulash tonight and planning on making a stew pot full of homemade soup this weekend with beef and chicken. YUM! It makes enough for about a week worth's of leftovers.

    Ascherer - stewed beef on biscuits sounds delicious - especially on a cold night!

    I made a big pot of veggie soup last night so we are having soup and mac & cheese for dinner.

    Tonight I am making stewed beef. You start it just like beef stew with sliced onions but don't add the potatoes, carrots, etc. The difference is you cook it until it falls apart. I like it over biscuits or in a bread bowl but it can be served over rice or mashed potatoes. Veggies will be determined by what looks pretty at Kroger although raw veggies or a salad is what I think I want.

    Y'all keep warm. I may only be 3 hours south but it is 10 degrees warmer here. Last night was the first night since I have been here we didn't get below freezing.
