    We finished the turkey-spinach loaf. I roasted one of our honey-nut squash to go with it, and we had microwaved fresh broccoli as well.

    Pizza for dinner. Used up some of the VT Cheese Powder!

    I got some nice hydroponic tomatoes at the hydroponic class open house today, so we had BLT's. Don't have the space and lighting to do something like that at home, though, some of those vines are 20 feet long.

    Tonight we had chargrilled chicken breast, baked sweet potato and green beans.

    I envy you the great tomatoes, Mike.

    For dinner on Friday, I made the Crispy Oven Fish and Chips again, which we had with the leftover dill tartar sauce and the coleslaw.

    Dinner tonight was venison liver, panfries, onions, and cole slaw.

    There is a large hydroponic tomato farm a mile down the road from us. The tomatoes are beautiful and delicious! Almost as good as garden ripened tomatoes.

    A nearby hydroponics farm should be able to pick their tomatoes close to when they sell them, otherwise they have to pick them before they're fully ripe so they don't rot before they get to the markets. And post-picking ripening doesn't enhance flavor.

    There are a half-dozen or so types of hydroponic systems, not all of them work well for tomatoes. You also need space to deal with vines that can easily get longer than 10 feet, and you need adequate lighting.

    The determinate variety that Stacey grows in his lab are expensive, the seeds are $1 each!

    Dinner tonight was left over pot roast.

    A woman at our Wine Club made these steak rolls which were "delish"! Of course I requested her recipe. She basically cuts thin pieces of steak tops them with a semi cooked soft piece of bacon and a small slice of onion. She rolls them with a toothpick and broils them. The possibilities are endless. I made KA's cheesy pepperoni bites and maybe I baked them for too long because they were dry and tasteless.

    I had to make a small grocery trip so we had taco salad my fast easy meal.

    Also I found butter buy one get one free at Publix which was 6.39 for 2 pounds so I got 4 pounds.

    Several stores have had butter on sale for $2.99 a pound here lately, so I'm stocked up for the holidays. And I have some rain checks for butter at under $2/pound at one store from last week.

    Now is a great time to stock up on holiday food specials for later.

    On Saturday, I cooked Skillet Chicken Thighs with Broccoli and Orzo, a recipe that appeared in The New York Times cooking section, and modified in line with reviews. I like this recipe a lot, but it does mean a major cleaning of the stove afterwards, as the grease splatters from cooking the chicken. We had a bit of leftover coleslaw on the side.

    I'm waiting for the usual holiday baking goods sales - nothing here yet. On a good note: KABC has just announced a "retail store sale" of 15% off $60 or more! Almost all of their sales exclude retail store sales! I need to work on my gift list to see what I might want to buy.

    Dinner tonight was tomato soup from the freezer, with blueberry muffins hot out of the oven. Tomorrow we are going to our son's home for Thanksgiving dinner; he is smoking a turkey. I'm really looking forward to this as their three children and significant others will be there also.

    We had several left overs in the fridge, so of course we had Mac and Cheese for supper. πŸ™‚
