Been busy today gathering the chives out of my garden, cutting them and freezing them for winter. I filled 1 1/2 PT. Freezer container. I still have a lot left outside to fill another container. Now I am ready for winter cooking . Love chives in soups and eggs.

Nell,

In the professional kitchen, we call what you're talking about "mise en place" (French: everything in it's place), and it's the key to a smooth running kitchen, at work or at home.

Mise en place, meal planning, and a detailed knowledge of what foods you have on hand at any given time are three of the first things we teach the kids in our cooking outreach programs. Important because it vastly reduces the stress and uncertainty (especially for people new to cooking) of preparing "real food" at home.

Great overview of these points, thanks!

I love to cook dinner, so I have no problem. I do, however, plan well so that each day I know when I need to start cooking, anything that needs to be done in advance (thaw meat, soak beans, etc) and that I will have everything I need. I just can't think on my feet about what to make for dinner, I can't look at my pantry and the clock and come up with something to make. Some people ask me how I know what I'll want on a given evening, but in reality I look at my plan every morning and spend the day in anticipation of what I have planned. I have been doing this kind of planning for years, and not only does it work for my weight, it's a comfortable way to live.

Yesterday I made a peach blueberry pie to take to my #3 son and his family this morning. They also like the tomato-potato soup I make, so I made that for dinner last night and have a bunch to take to them. I make a pot of tomato soup and a pot of potato soup, then serve it so the bowl has tomato on one side and potato on the other. It looks really cool. A little parmesan grated on top and it's yummy!

Yes, and I'm going out of town for the weekend, this weekend and next. This weekend to go to the quarterly meeting of a board of directors that I'm on. Next weekend, to celebrate DH and my 15th wedding anniversary. We even get to go ON the date of our anniversary! We're going to the Hocking Hills State Park area, where there are caves and waterfalls and lots of hiking, and staying in a cozy little cabin. I'm very excited!

Nell, I didn't go. I was having a bad grief day, and just wasn't up to it. Rebecca's parents gave us the momentos of her life unexpectedly--we thought it would be several more months--and it hit DH and I very hard.

My own dad's death was nothing, compared to the pain of this. I'm stunned by how deeply sad we are. It's hard to keep moving, some days.

Hi, everyone! Been kind of out of the loop, and it shows. I haven't been sparking, haven't been working out, haven't been cooking. But I haven't been eating that much, so at least I haven't gained weight!

It's Monday, though, and I feel reinvigorated. Gonna get to the pool today, get my chores done, get everything going the right direction!

Tonight is Moo Shoo pork. I have all the components prepped and ready to go, took about an hour and a half, and I'm taking a break before heating up the wok. I use pork tenderloin so it's better than any Moo Shoo Pork I can get in a restaurant.

Has anyone here tried sous vide? I love the idea of low temp cooking, but crockpots are too hot. The equipment is expensive and I hesitate to buy the immersion circulator if it turns out not to be worth the effort. Real equipment is hideously expensive ($800 and up) but there are smaller units for $200, in addition to a vacuum sealer. I'd like to talk to people who actually do it, how do you like it?

Still no rain. I am hoping it will arrive tomorrow. That would make me more interested in staying inside and cleaning. The pork chops was good and easy. Tonight I was hoping to have a pork tenderloin. I took it out of the freezer, but is not defrosted. I got a new recipe for tenderloin with a blackberry ginger sauce with jasmine rice and capresse salad. Plan B two small steaks with Mexican rice and capresse salad.

I am still hoping for rain here it is dry and dusty. Last night I had dinner with friends. It was fun and had cod which I love. Work has been terrible. I spent the majority of Labor Day working despite it was Labor Day weekend and our anniversary. I am hoping we can celebrate it next weekend. So now I am done whining.

Nell I am on our condo board and every time I have to deal with issues it makes me sick. It is always contentious and then when they see each other they always act like they are best friends. Welcome back Miss G. Rita hope you had a great day. I expect Barbara is still visiting her daughter and enjoying her grandson.

I'm back from errands. The gas company subcontractor was here yesterday to lay sod and seed, and God watered it yesterday evening. The Verizon contractor was here to lay the new permanent line, and someone should be out to connect it, don't know when. In a couple of hours I have to go to the condo management company's office for an interview with a prospective new maintenance guy. Our current maintenance man has been with us for about 10 years, but his attitude has deteriorated to the point where the board wants him gone. We've tolerated his refusal to use a computer, and he has been helpful with the cleaning guy (who has been in this country for over 20 years and still doesn't speak a word of English, something I cannot fathom), but it's time.

I won't have time to make a real dinner when I get back, so I guess I'll make polenta with tomato and cheese and basil. That will just take half an hour.

It is gloriously quiet! The jackhammers and air compressors are gone, people on the street can get in and out again without waiting for equipment and trucks to move. It's cool, the windows are open, and I can enjoy the peace. And hot water and FIOS. I intend to have a peaceful, dull, ordinary, wonderful day!

My gas is back on, the gas company (rather than their subcontractor) came out to turn everything on. I was so bummed out two nights ago with not having phone, tv or internet that I didn't cook dinner, and last night the gas wasn't on until after dinnertime, so I haven't had a dinner in two nights. Tonight I'll be able to cook! I'll need a nap this afternoon, though, because I also haven't slept well in two nights. I just want normal! We'll be disrupted again soon for a house siding repair, then having the house painted. I'm paying (a lot) for that, though.

Another beautiful day here. My plan is to roast a small chicken breast and serve with lemon pasta and sliced tomato. I did something to my back three weeks ago, probably lifting something heavy in the wrong way. I may need to make an appointment with the chiropractor.

Nell sorry to hear about all your problems. It sounds like the gas company has created a perfect storm.

The gas company broke my FIOS line yesterday, Verizon just got here to replace it. I was without phone, TV or internet for 28 hours. I still have no gas, no stove or hot water. I can make sandwiches for dinner, but I need to shower after a sticky day.

The jack hammers have started tearing up the street that was just repaved 5 years ago. It's going to be a long day.

Today was another cool, dry glorious day. I made pasta primavera tonight, taking advantage of the last of the summer veggies. I did use frozen peas, though. DH asked where I got them. I told him "at the store" so he ate them and said they were good. If I'd told him they were frozen he'd have picked them out like he did the mushrooms.

The gas company is supposed to do their line replacement tomorrow, after putting it off for 3 weeks. I won't have any gas for the day, so I have no idea what I'll make for dinner, without a stove or hot water. Maybe I'll have to pull out the electric skillet I bought for the kitchen reno last year.

Came to Boston today and went to Fenway Park for a baseball game. Red Sox lost, but a beautiful day and great seats. Now we are heading back on the train.

It is another beautiful day my son-in-law grilled chicken that was delicious. He also grilled corn on the cob seasoned with old bay seasoning. We also had cole slaw. Today he went clamming and is going to make chowder for dinner. His chowder is fabulous. I am trying to get people to clean out the leftovers as I am leaving Thursday for a long weekend.

I air condition only to 85 when I am away in the summer so my cats don't suffer. I figure the electric bill is just another cost of cats.

Going to visit my daughter for a couple of weeks. I'm hoping that the temps come down a tiny bit since the house will be closed up more than usual. My poor little Bobby cat is going to be all alone, except for visits by my son and friend.

Hi all! On the downhill slide out of summer, and they are saying to expect another early and harsh winter. Oh, well, it will make my snowboarding daughter very happy!
