I took a crack at my first attempt at a version of shepherd's pie. 1lb lean hamburger meat, bag of shredded velveeta, garlic salt, sauteed mushrooms, mashed potatoes, and a splash of heavy cream. Next time I'll add more butter I think. Still turned out great. My brother loved it & Mom liked it. She normally says something is "Okaaaaay" (with a sort of snooty tone) but she said this was "good". Which is about the highest praise she'll ever give.

I love summer. Sweet corn from the garden... tomatoes so big one slice almost covers a piece of bread... Tomato sandwiches are great with mayo and fresh ground pepper. I had pulled pork with a little sauce and a piece of cherry pie.

I finally seem to have cracked the code on making a good buttery cream sauce for the 5 cheese tortellini. This time I added a little bit of corn starch as thickener & it stuck to the pasta. Next time I'll make a larger quantity of sauce since it went over well with the family. There were no leftovers. LOL.

Last night's dinner ended up being sugar free jello salad.
Made with sugar free orange jello, sugar free cool whip, can of fruit cocktail(sugar free) and sugar free marshmallows served up on bed of lettuce. Also served with black olives, rinsed,with ribbons of Swiss cheese, Colby, Pepper Jack, dill pickles.
Tonight's dinner will be hobo packet.
Consisting of diced baby potato, chunky carrot coins, slice celery, green beans,onion with a piece of frozen unbreaded cod on top wrapped in sheet of tin foil, baked at 350* for hour or hour half.
I'll be full.
When making hobo packets you can make with any kind of meat and vegetables.
I just used the vegetables that needed used up.
