Tidbits

One of the best things about meatloaf dinners is that you can make sammiches from the leftovers.I piled hot giardiniera on this one and served it with sides of slaw and baked beans.  Tasty!Here’s a capture from the new trail camera.  It has enough resolution that I can crop the photo and not lose too much detail.  This coyote is sniffing a frozen pile of table scraps.  Looks a bit like Little Orphan Annie with those huge blank eyes.It hasn’t been all sammiches all the time!  This roast chicken went great with mashed potatoes and gravy.  I love broccoli – this batch was steamed and served with a pat of butter.Breakfast Pr0n!  I made a batch of biscuits and sausage gravy.  I used dry milk in this one because it has been in the cupboard for a long time – my bread machine standard white loaf recipe call for 2 tablespoons.  I bought a smaller box to replace it.  There was just enough left in the old box  to make the biscuits plus one quart of milk.We made a bunch of tomato soup from last summer’s tomato crop, I think Mrs J counted 40 quarts of soup and stewed tomatoes.  This is one of the all time best lunch combos.  It’s hard to tell from the photo but that’s an inside-out grilled cheese – there’s a layer of shredded cheddar on the outside that has toasted into the bread.Mmm… bacon cornbread.  I’ve been varying the basic cornbread recipe with little tweaks to the recipe.  I fried some bacon to render a little bacon fat, then chopped it up to sprinkle on the top.  The batter went into the hot grease to help put a crust on the bottom.  I added 2 eggs and a half stick of melted butter to the batter.  The extra egg helps it a lot.Pork BBQ with slaw and a side of baked beans.  Another classic sammich combo.
