those pesky new year's resolutions

One of my "goals" for the new year is to cook more. I have already tried several new recipes since Christmas, and got up this morning ready to try a couple more. I made some oatmeal cookies this morning, and then some "tofu salad" (just think egg salad or pasta salad - but - - - you know...)

Well, both of those turned out pretty good, and i was feeling very - hmm - satisfied. So far - so good.

Shortly after noon i started thinking about supper plans, and went to the freezer to pull out some pork chops or something. Uh-oh!! The freezer accidentally got unplugged and there was a puddle of water. All the frozen foods sitting there thawing - but fortunately still very cold. I started grabbing towels and pans, and PLANNING DINNER!! Woo-hoo! Let's have a party tonight!!

So, call the grandparents, call the kids, tonight we're having:

Vegetable Soup
Roast Pork Loin
Turnip Greens
Lima Beans
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Black-eye Peas
Sister's Rolls
Apple Pie
Strawberries (and ice cream that was in the house freezer)

I do much better with impromptu parties, anyway. No time to get in a flutter!
Wish you were here!
