So my gyros were awesome. I made 2 meatloafs of them. It's an Alton Brown recipe that I have used for years. We ended up eating 1 whole loaf. I had 1 piece with tzaztki sauce and hot sauce and I was done. DS14 had a gyro for breakfast.

DS14's bff got a spider bite on his face and had to go to the ER. He's been out of school all week. We went and got him his fav thing--a spicy McChicken sandwich and took it to him. He came outside to see us and his whole face is swollen and he had ice on it. Had to have intravenous antibiotics and has to go back to the dr today. It looks bad. Poor kid.

Since I don't do pie dough I thought that was a really nice feature!

Hope sonny boy does ok at school. Mine will be leaving school early to ride the Spirit Bus to Wichita to cheer on his high school basketball team.
Oh, can you share the recipe please?

So tonight I have bl skls chicken to cook. I have a crockpot mole recipe I might make but I don't know if I want that. I also have a ton of red peppers to use up as the boys haven't been eating them and I got 11 plus 4 green ones from the sale. If I cut them up and make a dip, they will eat them as a snack tonight---I do plan to do some like that. I don't want to do fajitas as we just had those last week.

KC, sorry to hear about your mom's fall. I walk with a cane today because of a fall in the bathtub.

Melinda, call whoever you sent the late payment to and apologize profusely. Explain to them you mailed it on Saturday. If you get the right person, they will take any penalty off if this is the first time it has happened. They are so thrilled you contacted them instead of just blowing it off.

It doesn't matter the size of the group. 1 or 30. Doesn't matter. You will need to call and set up a time. It will just take about 25 minutes to tour and then you come back for ice cream. Everyone is new working in the tour department this year I understand. I'm sure the boys and you will enjoy it if you go. If you need a no sugar ice cream most likely they will have the little cups for you. They also keep popsicles in the back non ice cream eaters.

kcmama...So sorry about the fall your mom took. I also know how you feel living so far away where you can't go and check on her. How old is she? I'm sure the phone call from you makes her feel better. It sounds as if your dessert turned out great!
Chewie....Geez....just the first of March and already dealing with spiders!!! I hope he will be ok soon. Kids heal fast it seems.

I've been in the kitchen making make believe bread and boiling eggs. Now I plan on making some tuna salad and some jello in case I need a sweet treat.
I think I will give this a try for our supper tonight. Looks easy. I'm all about easy!
BROILED CHICKEN BREAST WITH BLUE CHEESE
Printed from COOKS.COM
2 chicken breast halves
1 c. + 1 tbsp. fine bread crumbs (I may use pork rinds)
1/3 c. blue cheese
1 tsp. thyme (chopped)
1 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. parsley (chopped)
Salt, freshly ground black pepper to taste
Pound the breast halves lightly to flatten. Dredge in 1 cup crumbs and broil 2 minutes on each side.
Mix 1 tablespoon bread crumbs, blue cheese, thyme, butter, parsley, salt and pepper to form a paste. Spread the cheese mixture over the chicken and place under the broiler 6 to 7 minutes until nicely browned. Serve with rice pilaf and sauteed vegetables. Serves 2.

Looks good.

I think I'm going to make Chicken Sate with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce. It just sounds good to me. I love pb.

Chewie there are a lot of websites where you type in your destination and they will give you a list of things to do along the way. Pintrest has a load of them.

Melinda....you are the most thoughtful wife. Most of us would just bang them with the pan while they are still awake!!!

Chewie....if the recipe turns out on the spicy chicken please share it. It does sounds good!

I had to go and look up the recipe on Panna Cotta. Shamefully I have never made it or ate it in my life time. It looks yummy. I found one using half and half with Splenda and instant coffee. I may try it. I like coffee anything it seems.

My freezers are pretty full but my friend sent me the tyson sale list for this week. I am so tempted to go up there again. They have a 20 lb box of already cooked wings for only $32. I made 5 lbs last week and it cost me $19. This would last us at least 5 dinners cause we had a bunch leftover from the 5 lbs. Plus it's easy and everyone loves wings. I just need to make room in the freezer. Plus they have the deli turkey and chicken on sale again. We've had the chicken and it is really good.

It looks like a beautiful sunny and cold day here. We missed out on the storms. It was very cold and windy here yesterday but no precip. Lucky, did you all get snow?

I talked with my sister yesterday. They are leaving Houston on Friday and driving to Breckenridge. She is really worried because they don't have some kind of drive (4WD, AWD?) on her Infinity SUV and her friend's house is way up a mountain. Apparently they got more snow and are expecting more snow. Her dh and boys are excited about all the snow for skiing but she is worried about not being able to get up the mountain. They may have to park at the base in town and friends will have to come and get them. Shuttle service so to speak. LOL

She also told me that she was talking with my dad and he told her that my mom fell the other night. So I called her last night while waiting for my daughter outside of her dance studio. Her fall happened as she decided to take off her leg wraps for her lymphadema while in the bathroom instead of sitting down on her bed. The wrap is sort of sticky and was stuck on her pants leg so she also tried to take those off and in pulling somehow lost her balance and fell into the bathtub!She says she kept calling for my BIL to come and help but the couldn't hear her. She hit her head on the wall but not too badly, PTL. She finally managed to get herself turned around enough to get on her knees to push herself up. Her knees are badly bruised and swollen. She sounded good and it could have been so much worse. I wish she would have gone to the doctor but she didn't. I am hoping she didn't damage something that hasn't shown up yet.

KC - I agree with you - the Cadbury creme egg is not my cup of tea - but Reese's PNB............and they are EVERYWHERE right now. I tell myself they are so much better - hey - pnb is good for you in moderation, right?

So glad to hear your Mom is ok. You said she didn't hit her head hard - falling is really bad for older folks. I know this is what started my Mom's decline. The doc said that hard hits can do damage to their brains. Out of curiousity you mentioned your mom has lymphedema. That's what they have said I have. Can you tell me how long - and what they have done for her? It's hard to find a doctor that even recognizes it - they want to shove it off as water retention. Then you end up with a lymphedema specialist. It's something I still haven't dealt with, but know I need to. Thanks.

Linda

Well Melinda - this sick chick gets sad because I know I shouldn't be eating it at all. I'll give you the creme eggs - and I'll take all the caramel - lol - talk about win/win - hmmm - guess not. So so good. I was so good not buying a bunch of valentine candy - but Easter and pnb cups/eggs...........give me strength

Glug, glug, glug..............water, water everywhere..........Remember - we're only something like 7 ft above sea level. But - no snow. DS just called and it's snowing in D.C. - about 50 miles west of us. Told him to keep it there - don't want any out here. But they are calling for rain and more rain. Better go buy a boat at this rate. Plus they are talking flooding.

Nothing new on the woman that is missing out here either. Someone asked how old she was - 51.........Search continues - and the investigation is still on going.

Got a big pot of chili going. Smells so good. Lots of leftovers - oh my but I do love leftovers. Even made dh some tapioca pudding.

Was supposed to go the retina specialist today - but - they called at 7:30 and cancelled - don't know if it was weather related or not. They even closed schools out here - no snow - but - boy - do we have the water standing all over - poor dogs - ground is all mushy. They love it though - cause they get a good rubdown with a big bath towel when they come in from finding a place to do their business...........the joys here in dogdom...........

Here's a recipe for anyone that is wanting choc pb stuff. It's from Linda Sue.

2 tablespoons butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons cocoa, sifted

Put the first 3 ingredients in a medium size microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH about 30 seconds to soften the cream cheese and butter. Beat with a wire whisk until smooth and creamy. Add the remaining ingredients and beat until well blended. Pour into a lightly greased 8-8 1/2" round glass or ceramic quiche pan or pie plate. Microwave on 50% power 5-6 minutes, rotating every 2 minutes, until the center is set, but still soft. Cool and chill before serving.

Makes 4-6 servings
Freezing not recommended

I FOUND IT!!!! I'm so excited.
LC Peanut Butter Egg Recipe:
Filling:
1/2 stick unsalted butter
1/2c creamy peanut butter (NO-STIR, not all natural)
6T coconut flour
2T heavy cream
2T erythritol
20 drops liquid sucralose
1/4t stevia
1/4t finely ground sea salt

Coating:
1 oz (1 block) unsweetened Baker's chocolate
2T unsalted butter
2T heavy cream
10 drops liquid sucralose
2T erythritol
1/8t finely ground sea salt
Cream softened butter and peanut butter. Mix in coconut flour, adding a little at a time. Combine heavy cream and erythritol in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir well and let cool for few minutes. Beat cream mixture into peanut butter mixture. Beat in sweeteners and sea salt, tasting and making adjustments to your liking. Mold into an "egg" shape with your hands and plop onto a pan lined with parchment paper. Chill in freezer.

Combine chocolate coating ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir mixture until chocolate is completely melted. Chill in freezer until coating is spreadable in consistency (5-10 minutes). Remove from freezer and stir coating well until smooth. Remove peanut butter filling from freezer and spread with coating. Chill again until serving. Slice and eat!

32g effective carbs for the whole recipe. Slices up into at least 10 rich slices, with 3.2g effective carbs per slice.

Stuff...

Chewie- not sure I read right - that you were thinking of coming to KC and wondering what there was to do?

If so just thought I'd mention there is a mag (even online version) call kcparent that has listing of many things around for kids to do in the area. Schedules times, some are organized by age groups, seasons, etc. it is a pretty good resource .. (although it's has a ton of smaller kids options compared to teens but still has many options). Also visitkc (dotcom) and

IMO there are TONS of things to do around KC. Zoo, Worlds of Fun (amusement park)(opens weekends in april), Oceans of Fun (opens May), CoCo Keys (hotel w/indoor water park), Great Wolf, some pro football and baseball team,
Science City has a Planetarium, and on the way to KC (if coming from OK?) on the southwest side is the Powell Observatory (often overlooked place to go). Laser Tag and Paintball Places, and a place that has like a 5,000 sq ft vertical/horizontal rock climbing wall (though that's about all for teens - called Monster Mountain/Bump City in Overland Park). Up by the Raceway is a restaurant with indoor arcade stuff - heard it's great with the kids called Dave and Buster's (i've never been but want to as I'm a big kid

Anyway tons and tons and tons of stuff. but it'll take some driving around town as stuff is pretty spread out.

Nice to meet you too ... well I know how guys can be. You can be like my mom - just make him up a pack of things and say "here, take these" lol. You can always just mix up snack bags of seeds/nuts - he'll probably never know. Pumpkorn is a great brand that has already hulled and seasoned the pumpkin seeds. They make it organic, no artificial or preservatives. They have like seasalt, dark cocoa, adobo chile, honey/flax. They are delicious! Anyway can you tell I like Pumpkorn

Anyway aside from that I hope just getting off of Aspartame works for him ... I've tried some other sodas like Zevia (made with Stevia) and blech. lol. I just got a soda stream so seeing about making up something myself with soda water and stuff (maybe small shot of juice and/or just a lemon wedge). I'm such a Coke Zero and Diet Dr. Pepper fiend. sigh.

Lymphedema

Kcmama - sorry about your mom .. hope she's ok. My sister has had lymphedema since she was in her teens. Now she's older it's gotten pretty severe. Anyway I tell her she's a Weeble that Wobbles but does fall down as she's always complaining about her balance (one side is more affected than others although hers is fairly bi-lateral). I keep telling her to get a cane but pfft. she doesn't listen. Unfortunately not being able to wear regular shoes doesn't help.

Pressure Cooker?

Ok - I've gotten a new pressure cooker .. so was looking to try it out with some beef roast (think it's shoulder) anyway usually I slow cook something like pork with a green chile/tomatillo sauce .. I was wondering if anyone knows whether that would go with beef (rather than pork)? or would it go better with a salsa red type sauce? (I prefer green to red).

Also can I just use the sauce to cook the beef in the pressure cooker?

Anyone know?

Chewie....if the recipe turns out on the spicy chicken please share it. It does sounds good!

I had to go and look up the recipe on Panna Cotta. Shamefully I have never made it or ate it in my life time. It looks yummy. I found one using half and half with Splenda and instant coffee. I may try it. I like coffee anything it seems.
I put it off for a while after someone had posted it. I cannot believe how quick and easy it was to make! Omg. 5 minutes! Ok, then set up time. It is delish! But then I like creamy, velvety, cool, smooth desserts. My mom and my sister hate them. More for me, I always say!! Let me know how the coffee one turns out. Baskin Robbins Jamocha Almond Fudge was one of my fav ice creams. I think a coffee flavored panna cotta would be great. If you used decaf Nescafe it would be a great dessert for after dinner.
