    I'm roasting some chicken thighs ( making extra for another night). I'm really not in a cooking mood so I'll probably make some stove top stuffing and nuke some broccoli

    Yes it was from scratch.
    Yes, my 76 year old mother shares recipes.
    She got it from POST magazine; Sour Milk Old Fashion Gingerbread.
    But I will write it down for you and post it when I go over this week.

    Sweet. The recipe I have used called for actual grated ginger root and most people don't care for that even though it gives it a good tang.

    Warm today, not many of those days for a while. I decided to smoke some dogs with pecan wood. Picked up potato salad from the good deli in the big town last night, yummy.

    I love steamed shrimp... however, I started buying cooked 24oz bags of frozen medium shrimp with the shell on. It's pricey.. $22. but I can get 6 or 7 meals, 8 or 10 shrimp at a time served as a shrimp cocktail. They thaw in about 20 minutes in water. Add some fries of veggies... I can still get out with less than $3 a meal.

    What's this with triscuits and rosemary... please explain this to me. :)

    Way to go @havasu I love escargo, been decades since I had any.

    Tonight I had hotdogs. I hadn't made french fries in my air fryer in a while. The other night at the store they only had yukon gold potatoes so I got a bag. They actually made really good fries tonight!

    @Peanut Triscuit makes a flavor with rosemary. They are still as salty as ever but tasty! We got 2 lbs. per bag of raw shrimp for $10, bought two bags. Next time maybe we'll have shrimp lime cilantro or shrimp scampi.
    I think we fix spaghetti once a week. That was dinner tonight, along with more good salad. Most of the family hates spaghetti but I don't make them eat it. lol They hungry? They eat. I prefer angel hair pasta. I tried making my own sauce a few times, #FAIL, and always go with bottled. No, I'm not Italian!

    Tonight will be roasted turkey, baked sweet potato for me and regular potato for DH, and salad. Rest of turkey will get sliced and frozen for Thanksgiving Day so one less thing to do then!
