I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

no stew for you!

… and no, I ain’t the stew nazi, lol!

this is what 14 hours low n’ slow in the crockpot looks like! oh, and mine’s an old school ceramic Rival model w/only two settings; low & high. no timer, nuthin’ fancy folks – workhorse still gets the job done!

… haricots verts motherfuckers!

meatballs, mushrooms, and marinara!

… m&m, & m! long story short; know damn well whole roasted mushrooms don’t belong – my 1st intent was meatball sandwiches. out the window that went. made my famous balls, instead served it simply. if served w/ $50 Barolo constitutes simply. next day, became my traditional spaghettini&meatballs (love this) meal. 3rd day turned into ‘the tossin’ the lot, the whole kit and kaboodle – then baking (my fave, btw – sorry, no pics) it. plus, still have 2 more days eats left! sweet, my 5 day eye-talian meal!

my perfect omelette obsession!

… I’ve had it for years. It’s an ongoing, anal thing of mine, lol! Starts w/ the best ingredients! I’m partial to mushroom and cheese for fillings … cremini, and anything Swiss is my absolute favourite (and fresh thyme from my garden too – sadly, am still weeks away)! AND, don’t compromise; you MUST use the best/freshest eggs you can get! Whole Foods always fits the bill. Here’s my haul y’all!
