My daughter made homemade french onion soup--a favorite of mine since I was very young--with some homemade broth early on in the #quarantimes. It was so tasty, and I was so impressed with her skills. (We used two cup size, *original*, Pyrex bowls for the oven.)

My CSA has started up--we're the drop off/pick-up site, so we at least to get to chat with folks from the other end of our porch every week, which is nice for this introvert :)--and we had a *lot* of chives. That, plus the heavy cream left after making the homemade strawberry chocolate chip ice cream after our dairy run last weekend, means I've got cheddar chive scones in the oven now. You know, for brunch. Since the Zoomer that lives upstairs doesn't wake up until the crack of noon. ;)

Anyone have a good peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe? I'm so glad I was too lazy to get up and go to the printer and just hand copied the recipe from the Nestle's website. I would have missed the dozens of negative reviews. Hard to believe Nestle's had a bad recipe using their chips, so bad people were pissed they wasted their time and ingredients.

Last night, in honor of Mother's Day, #1 Son ordered take out from one of the best restaurants in town. Giant Rib-Eyes and lobstah bisque and chocolate cake. The most extravagant meal we've had in months!

Today, I baked a huge boule of sourdough bread. It was delicious, and a focaccia topped with kalamata olives, garlic, some rosemary from the garden, Parmigiano and olive oil for a snack. It was the only way I got a break from gardening!

Dinner was a stir-fry of cabbage, sliced Brussels sprouts, carrot, asparagus, chicken and a garlic, ginger sauce.- and homemade bread & butter. Watermelon shortly.

Buon Appitito!

Frustrated with cooking, I just made out a one month menu plan with theme nights for each day of the week and meals using what I have on hand mostly. Will need to buy some cheese, corn tortillas, and hamburger buns at some point but not much else. I feel a lot better not having to think so much.

Do take-out when this happens. It helps both you and locally owned restaurants.

Eating out skeeves me out. I don’t trust people. There was a next-door post 2 days ago about the Wendy’s down the street, that the employees were not wearing gloves and masks. When questioned about it they said they did not have to.

Fast food isn't the only choice. I'd bet there are locally owned eateries where the staff really cares about the health and well being of themselves and their customers. They want you back after this is over. And speaking of masks and gloves, do YOU wear them when you cook for your family? It goes both ways.

Honestly, I used to manage a USDA inspected food manufacturing plant and my standards and methods on food safety are very high, including in my own kitchen.

We choose one restaurant a week and Order Take Out. It has to be a restaurant we like and in the Olden Days would Dine In.

Fortunately for us, I enjoy cooking and I am excited each night that I get to cook again. :) We did give ourselves a treat last week by ordering curbside pickup of 2 gluten-free thin crust pizzas from our golf course restaurant. It was delicious and I gained 2 lbs the following morning.

Foodsby has started neighborhood delivery for lunches for $1.99 flat fee per meal or a $9.99 monthly fee for unlimited delivery (and you get a month for free!). No tipping.

I used them at work all the time. I don't know how the neighborhood delivery model will work.

I am DONE cooking. Made lasagna this week, batch and a half so I could take a tray to my parents. We'll finish it up tomorrow. I have some smoked pork chops that need to be used before the end of the month, but that's just heating them up and choosing a side dish or two from freezer and pantry. I froze chili, stew and soup, so that's as close to homemade as we'll get for awhile. Then it's back to Lean Cuisine or sandwiches for dinner unless we (meaning he) throw burgers on the grill. Two months of comfort food, and the scale shows it. I don't even have a taste for take out at this point. I need to break out of my perpetual food coma.

I'm busy cleaning my garage, so the slow cooker is doing the heavy lifting today. Making a Chili Cheese Hot Dog casserole thing, from a recipe I found online. https://cooktopcove.com/2017/05/03/how-to-make-chili-cheese-hot-dog-casserole-in-a-slow-cooker/

Not fancy, but sounds good. We'll see. Hot dog buns, sliced hot dogs, canned chili, diced onions, cheddar cheese, and a bit of Dijon mustard. I added a can of diced green chillies just to give it a little punch. Layered together, it looks messy as all get out. We'll see how it tastes. Will serve it with sour cream on top, and some fresh salsa chips on the side.
