    I've had a bad couple of days and started craving rice pudding this afternoon. I looked up a recipe online and made it when I got home. I've never had it fresh and warm. Oh my.

    Did you have to put this here? I know what I'll have tomorrow--along with the "yearly steak" They had 2 BEAUTIFUL, thick ribeyes marked down to 8$ (!), so Valentine's day is coming early here, this WE. I very, very rarely eat any red meat and when I do it's venison; I barely remember beef and I'm excited.

    UNK...I love the "comment" on the page that says, "None of the recipes here even mention a spicy ingredient" or something to that effect. I can imagine the Pace cowboys saying "That blog's from NOO YORK CITY!!"

It comes back every spring no matter how cold the winter.
    Mint is invasive. If you ever get it all out ;-) and want to start over, put a pot in the ground, and plant it in the pot. (Or just plant it in a regular pot...I usually put it in a hanging planter so that it can go to town without taking over.)

    I plant my basil in between my tomatoes. I don't usually have a problem with bugs, but I doubt it's because I actually did anything to prevent it...most likely, it's just dumb luck somehow.

    No mint is NOT invasive! I am just very good at growing it...haha. I will take my gardening victories wherever possible, tyvm.

    It won't grow for me either. There's some little beastie that lives near me that eats it all up until it's just stems. I love mint, but two summers of eaten plants was enough for me.

    Re: General Food Talk

    I was out of tomato sauce last time I made chili and used a can of tomato soup and everyone RAVED that it was so good what did I do differently. So guessing that tomato soup is going in the chili from now on.

    Making a special dinner tonight, I have chicken thighs thawing out (they are taking forever).
    Was thinking of doing piccata or scallopine. Sort of, I can't make them thin or into cutlets.
    Any other ideas maybe? I seem to be fresh out of ideas.
    Thanks.

    Oh gosh, I wish I'd read this earlier...just yesterday I tried a new crock pot recipe just for chicken thighs, and my family loved it! Will try to post it in the crockpot thread for future reference. Darn, and it only takes 4 hours!

    I have chicken soup, curried coconut chicken with rice, and chicken salad that all needs to be eaten, but I found an avocado that I thought was going bad, so for supper just now I cut it open and it was PERFECTLY ripe. I spread it on a couple of slices of multigrain bread that was baked today at the bakery with seeds and oats in it. OMG! You couldn't have made a better meal with 20 ingredients and an hour of prep. I want to go back in time and eat it again.
    Count your blessings!
