Well I got totally bored with the 27 things. I did most of them but just didn't see where I would or could use any of them. I must say they were fun.
After I got bored with the 27 things I just gave up on my blog. Yes I am still making dinner. This time of year all I do is BBQ's. The kids & Grandkids still come every Sunday to chow on mom's food, which is a good thing.

I went to Texas to visit my youngest son. We ate at some really good places and one really bad place. We had some beer and burgers at the UFO beer place. That was good food and good beer. They have those Taco trailers in Austin, but the sell EVERYTHING out of them. We had a delicious Vietnamese sandwich from one, I had the Lemongrass pork. It was made with julienned carrots, cukes, and jalapeño peppers. There was a kind of mild vinegar sauce on them yum I tell you yum! I had my first bubble tea, which will probably be my last; I loved the tea not a big fan of the bubbles.

Parkwalk was our bad restaurant it was our fancy night out, we were all let down. I loves me a martini and hadn't had one in ages so I ordered one here thinking since the bar was the biggest part of the restaurant, they would have good drinks. Wrong! It was the worst martini I have ever had. The food was horrible I had pork cheek that was overdone and tasteless. My son ordered the scallops, he said they tasted ok but the portions were VERY small.

The last place we ate before headed to the airport was SPIDER HOUSE WOW, what a great place to have breakfast. We ate outdoors among the conglomeration of odds and ends, I took a few pictures and will add them in here, although my phone is the only camera I own so bear with me : ) We had the best Bloody Mary I have ever had. Bagels with everything topped with cream cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes and onions with chips. What a way to start the day.

Next my adventures in making my own dog food.

Well I finally got it together to post my stuffed tomatoes!
As soon as I started to make these I remembered why I like them. You can do anything with tomatoes. These were stuffed with Parmesan herb bread, garlic, and topped with thyme flowers and sage.
The original recipe is culled from "Simple Organic Cooking" Compiled by Constance B. Bates 1972. This was one of the first cookbooks that I owned.

Original recipe change as you like : ) Of course it is much better if it is tomatoes season!

4 large tomatoes
2 TB. melted butter
1 1/4 cup of soft bread crumbs
1 egg, well beaten
2 cloves minced garlic
Rosemary to taste
1/2 tea. salt
few grains of pepper

Rinse tomatoes cut off the top of each tomato. Spoon out pulp and seeds. Sprinkle the inside with salt. Place tomato shells in a shallow baking dish.
Drizzle melted butter over bread crumbs and toss to lightly coat. Lightly mix in egg and remaining ingredients. Spoon mixture into tomato shells. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serve hot.

In the Begining

As this is my first try err ahh no that won't work.

Here I am at work trying to think of what to have for dinner. Please no take out.
After at least 40 years or so of cooking, I should have recipes coming out of my ears.

That's the thing right there.

What was cool and good in the 60's or 70's does not sound that good in the fly away 00's. I know you are thinking , hey retro is the new new. That may be OK with things like fondue, but really no one wants to eat Eggplant Istanbul over brown rice anymore do they? Or stuffed tomato's with wheat bread tarragon stuffing. Oh wait that does sound kind of good.

So for dinner I will make stuffed tomato's

Recipe please?
Hmm I will have to look that up at home.
I will give that tidbit out in my next blog. Hopefully with a pic!
