I am currently working on a re-model as well as a few memes. I hope to be all done by mid September.

This began as a way to organize recipes I found in magazines - much easier than a bunch of papers piling up all over the place! I've also started sharing some of my own personal & favorite recipes.

Peel, dice & boil 6 potatoes. They should be just soft enough to eat. Drain.

Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a medium pan. Add 5 tablespoons of broth* & about 2 tablespoons of dried chives, mix well.

Dump potatoes on top of butter broth mixture. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Mix well to coat potatoes.

Serves about 6.

*Tip: you can use any kind of liquid you want to suit your meal/taste.

Grilled ham & cheese for lunch.
Wednesday - meatloaf with onion gravy, whipped potatoes & mixed vegetables
Thursday - I wasn't feeling too good so everyone had leftovers.
Friday - pork chops, scalloped potatoes, broccoli
Saturday - I got home late so we had soup & sandwiches

Savory Sunday 9-11-11

I really like to make a big spaghetti dinner on Sundays cause we are all home. Sometimes this doesn't work out because I get to the bakery too late & there's no Italian bread left.

Spaghetti bolognese is usually my main spaghetti dish. Depending on what I have i the freezer I also make a combination of meatballs, sausage, brasciole & short ribs.

Sorry but my sauce is a recipe I'm keeping to myself :-)
