I just got out my fall cook books and started looking at recipes and planning menus. Today I am going to work on a large grocery list and will go shopping this week for the pantry items I will be needing.

@Pooky1I simply don't know what you do with all the food. What your MIL made for one meal, I would feed my family for a week. She must really love to cook.

Tonight I have made Baked Ziti and a tossed salad . It is a little bit chilly today. Only a short time till we get out fall/winter cooking.

keybra.i know its alot of and we tell her all the time stop cooking all that . but she does have alot of leftovers and she really wont cook to much all week and eats leftovers. we eat down stairs only on weekends and today she put leftovers on table plus she made a big pan of stuffed shells and fresh tomato salad from garden and swiss chard and fresh tomatos cooked together. i found what you wrote funny about all the food. when i first started coming to her moms house like 22 years ago i was allso surprized at a full table of food.

Re: whats cooking in september?

Thanks much Pooky1 - you are moving pretty darn fast and that is good. Is is so miserable here in Sou Cal where  I live - air so thick you cannot breathe and about 103 - may be hotter I am not sure but it sure is miserable. 

 

Tonight will be a sandwich with some fried White Squash I cooked last night - sure like that stuff. NO using a stove today.

 

Hope all had a great day and thanks again  Pooky1

Thanks for responding @Pooky1 .  But I wasn't seeking tips for making great meatballs for me but just thought your input could help the poster who was asking for help.  Since reading her post, she has gotten additional replies so I'm sure she will make the best meatballs at her family reunion contest!
