Have you ever used those brown in bags? My sister turned me onto those a while back and I have made some killer chuck roasts in them. It is so easy to make too, and the chuck roast is amazingly tender. You can throw in the potatoes, onions and carrots at the same time.

Fresh basil, pine nuts (pinoli), olive oil, garlic, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Into the food processor and grind to a rough puree.

Prepare fettucine pasta, drain and add pesto to the pasta, stirring it in. Crusty Italian bread, a good Pino Grigio, and you'll know how good life can be - even in Texas!

I've got this cooking in the crock pot today for the first time.

I'll try and remember to let you know how it turns out.

My husband is slaving over a hot grill right now, grilling me a delmonico, corn on the cob, and red pepper! Here's to meeting your wife's emotional need for steak!

Melody, I'll have to check those brown-in bags out - been hooked on the ol' crock pot lately since I can start it in the morning and dinner's ready when I get home!

yum - grilled corn on the cob!

Another crock pot dinner for the girls and I - chicken breasts slow cooked in a sauce of cream cheese, dry Italian dressing mix, cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth (recipe called for white wine, but I subbed the broth), and of course, butter (cause it was not fattening enough!). Served over egg noodles. Now, DD#2, my picky eater, had her chicken with "NO SAUCE, MOMMY!!!!" and then covered it with BBQ sauce (???). DD#1, who is an equal-opportunity eater as well as a bottomless pit, had 2 helpings, although the chicken was not allowed to touch the noodles. wink

If I were an absent FBH, hearing these details in a low-intensity update might have the salutary effect of reminding me of the casual, seemingly minor joys my self-imposed exile were denying me, and why a family together is so much the best lifestyle.

Just saying......

The sweet potato stew was lovely! I made flatbreads for the first time from this recipe http://wwwfamilycookbookcom.blogspot.com/2009/04/joy-of-flatbread.html and they went with it so well.

Tonight, waiting for "Irene" -

Sausages (hot and sweet) roasted with sauteed red and green grapes, served over garlic mashed potatoes, aka:

Italian Bangers and Mash

And none of that Lone-Star eye-rolling! This was delicious!

The only criticism I have is that you didn't invite H and me.

We had steak (him) and sausage (me) on the grill. I fried some green tomatoes (delicacy alert!) and threw a loaf of buttered french bread on - complete gastronomical bliss!

Don't know if I've posted this one yet:

Goat tangine with saffron and dates
Couscous

And an incongruous vegetable on the side, since I needed to use it up:
Sweet corn off the cob w/ cumin, red chili, and butter. (Of course, butter!)

Best thing is: it's crockpot-approved!

Mel, funny you should post today.

Because here's another "pesto" recipe for you, that I made tonight for the first time: cherry tomatoes, MINT leaves, garlic, pinoli, olive oil, salt, red pepper flakes. Food-processed, poured over and mixed into prepared pasta (we did linguine). OMG!

Say what??? Prisca looked that up on the internet! She is a Texas girl just like me! WE eat supper at BODACIOUS BBQ! We don't eat foreign foolishness like "BANGERS" and "MASH!" skeptical
