By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.

Cooking All Day

I've been cooking all day preparing for the weekend.......company is coming and I don't want to miss visiting with them.
First up on the menu is "Leftover Pot Roast Stew"

I used the last canned tomatoes from my garden from last year and added the following ingredients:
6 cups beef stock or just plane tap water 
diced leftover pot roast
4 diced large potatoes
2 cans whole kernel corn
2 cans green beans
1/2 shredded cabbage (I used red cabbage)
2 cans English peas
2 cans stewed tomatoes (or canned tomatoes from your garden)
2 onions, diced
1/2 chopped clove of garlic
1 cup of uncooked spaghetti broken into 2 inch pieces
1 can tomato paste
salt and pepper to taste

All of these goes into a very large pot to simmer for 3 hours. The smells are out of this world.
I'll cook a pan of cornbread to eat with the stew or just serve the stew with my favorite crackers and a salad.

Here's a peek at the process. See all that steam.......oh I wish we had smell-o-blog right now.
Next, I've baked a hen.

Notice the apple poking out of the cavity of the bird? Someone mentioned that placing and baking an apple inside the hen gives it a different flavor...sorry I couldn't remember where I heard about it but wanted to give credit anyway.
I cooked the hen with peach juice that I saved from a peach cobbler recipe I made last week. No use in allowing that excess juice from the can to go to waste. I also added some whole cranberries to the mix and baked for about 2 hours. Again, the smell is delicious.  I'll probably cook some rice and steam squash, broccoli and cauliflower for a great meal.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
