I knew Easter is coming up but forgot that it is this Sunday. I do know I will make potato salad, deviled eggs, but almost positive it's the two of us & I have a ham steak in the freezer. A big ham is too much for just us. Need to figure out a veggie & dessert. DH is easy to cook for so he would be happy with a Popsicle for dessert, who know he may just have that dessert. LOL


@sissel ......potato salad and deviled eggs makes for a wonderful meal for me.....add a Popsicle and I am in HEAVEN !

Supper was a tuna salad sandwich and chips, as we are home alone again.   

 

Got my 2 dozen boiled eggs and beets in to pickle today, so my house smells of vinegar!

@pooky1   We like oatmeal, and I really love Cream of Wheat, though I hardly eat it, except when I am in the hospital. lol.  DH used to eat oatmeal every morning, now not as often.

 

The Easter breads sound wonderful.  Who wouldn't love calzone, have eaten them, but yet to make them, too lazy.

 

I usually bake ham for Easter, but decided today to make Porchetta, I know you know what this is.  Has Maria or Anna made it?  I will serve some type of potatoes, maybe cheesy scalloped, maybe a lighter type, and a green vege, and will make a carrot cake for dessert.  I make the cake layers on Saturday and put on the glaze, then into the frig until Sunday when I will frost the middles tops and sides with cream cheese frosting, and press chopped walnuts all over the sides.  I will have it for breakfast next week, lol, then run up and down the hills for an hour, not a chance, LOL!

 

I buy organic albacore tuna at Costco, a pale white/pink, and so good.  It's on sale now, so bought three packs of six each.  One of my favorite meals, think I mentioned this, is this tuna mixed with mayo and slathered on a crispy Acme sour baguette.  No baguette for a while with my clicking jaw, but bought a cranberry walnut bread, round, at Costco today and it is wonderful, nice and chewy but light, dessert for me tonight, and breakfast for me tomorrow, lol.  The cranberries in it are plump like raisins, and not tart.  Of course, I wasn't thinking about my jaw when I bought it, or when I sit here chewing it, lol.

 

I bought the new round hotdogs from here recently, so that was dinner, on a seeded bagel from Costco for me, and rolls for DH, his choice, with catsup and onions, salad on the side.  They are very good.  My salads are simple, either Spring mix, or that with cucumbers, or that with tomatoes, sometimes the mix with avocado and lemon juice, my favorite.

 

I am stuffed now, so no more talk of food, lol.

 

Gorgeous weather today and I had to go to Costco, very bad timing.  Warm, but about six or so degrees cooler.  I plan to garden like crazy since I will be stuck in the kitchen Saturday making cake and stuffed eggs for Sunday, and Sunday still cooking.

Re: WHATS COOKING AT YOUR HOUSE THIS APRIL 2019 ?

It was sultry here yesterday - I do NOT like that kind of weather. Only 80 but I was really sweating. Part of it is this cold or whatever I have in addition to just not feeling real well. Golly me.

 

Cooking today - do not do a lot of that any more - but will probably toss something together. With no one else in the house I find myself eating more like I did eons ago when it was only me - not for a long time but I liked it. LOL.. Always had my big meal at lunch - at at work as a bunch of us always went out for lunch. Then when I got home - which could be any hour, I had a salad or something I had made earlier with leftovers. Healthier to eat that way also I am firmly convinced. My days at work would often go into extended hours and then there was always the hour drive back home. Great not to panic. Also occasionally I would stop on the way and get a salad and just rest for a few minutes. 

 

Easter will be different for me. I usually cook the Easter dinners and am not offering that up and also no one has asked me out for dinner. LOL. I will be fine but will sorely miss having any little ones around to hunt Easter eggs. Many of those hunts have been held at this house through the years. My folks bought this house in the early 60s and they always had something going. Gathering place for children for sure and it did not change much through the years until now. Times have changed.

 

HOpe all eat well.

I wish I lived near you Freddie.  I'd have you over for dinner.  

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

Re: WHATS COOKING AT YOUR HOUSE THIS APRIL 2019 ?

I had to turn the heat on this morning. Rather chilly. This, however, is very typical for this time of the year. Sweltered for a couple days and this morning plumb cold.

 

Also fixed some WOK veggies and orange chicken for dinner. Easy meal to fix - for one - and it was really good. Have at least one more go round with those veggies - love WOK veggies. You can literally add anything in with them and it is a good meal. Have several more meals with the Orange Chicken - it too is good.

 

Off to church in a while - going to hear a great message this morning for sure. He is Risen!

 

Have a great day one and all.
