You guys are all my heroes!!!  I hate to cook and I'm not good at it.  I just don't "get" how to cook - it is not intuitive to me at all, though I'm a little better that I used to be because I've gotten more patient in my old age.  Then you add to the fact that I am so wiped out after work every day... recipe for disaster (pardon the pun).  Mostly I'm just trying to do semi-homemade where I buy the main course and build around it.  My family and I are starting to love those Hormel, Jennie O and like meals like meatballs and sauce or beef tips and gravy, then I just boil some noodles or rice and throw in a veggie and some fruit and we have a complete meal. 

I used to be so critical of myself that I didn't come home and make a homemade meal for my son, but I've decided to let myself off the hook and work with lots and lots of shortcuts.

Since my son doesn't really like anything anyway, it really doesn't matter if it homemade or not!!!

You are right on the mark, Jordozmom. Most important is just to sit down and spend the time together eating with family than that you put a gourmet meal in front of your kids and get upset because they won't eat it.

Night before Halloween...the cauldron (crockpot) is bubbling away with a seasonal brew (beans and pork hocks).

I know we all seem to love our crockpots/slowcookers, but I must admit...it drives me crazy, too....the house has such an inticing aroma all day and I can't dig in til suppertime!

Crayfish! I haven't had any since I was a young adult, stopping by my aunt and uncle's place in SW Louisiana with my husband and our first child, who was a baby at the time. My aunt served a crawdad gumbo that was fantastic, crawdads from the bayou out back of their house. What a yummy memory.

We are stuck in a snowstorm here in Seattle that left our very hilly city pretty treacherous to travel. I just sent my husband off to work with a big thermos of split pea soup I made for us to eat yesterday, hoping he'll make it to work safely, but if not at least he'll have something warm to eat!

I love reading all these meal ideas. I love to cook and enjoy eating also!!!!

Billdude, I have to ask about the brussels sprouts in the home made soup. I make a lot of soup in the crock pot but have never tried the sprouts. Is it a strong flavor or do you have a trick to tame down the flavor???? Curious. Irish ;D

OK, I'll bite - what is corned silverside?

We had fresh vegetables from the farmers market - onions and romano beans - sauteed in olive oil with herbs and tossed over pasta with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Sleepy I LOVE chips, in fact I LOVE spuds cooked any way at all. I chuckled when I read you stuffef yourself full. Id do that hehe

corned silverside is a cut of beef that has been salted in a brine, a little like how they cure ham, although the taste is totally different to ham. If you get the chance you should try it, it really is yummy. Its also a bit salty.

Ssooo humm whats on the menu for tonight. I think anything thats quick and easy. Probably maccaroni cheese. That might go down well.

I would eat that, Calli.

Tonight we had a quick meal: Japanese-style fried noodles (yakisoba) with lots of broccoli, carrots, onions, and tofu, and fresh pickled ginger as a garnish, with tea.
