It may sound incredibly odd (or pathetically lame), but for me, many of the most interesting conversations I have with anyone are about what they cook and eat at home. Not necessarily the Wow! things, but I find the everyday grind things interesting too, as well as what their mom made when the cupboard was bare, the first things they learned to cook, and what they cook for their families now. Last night, I made hash with chopped blue potatoes and red onions fried up with some diced leftover meats. Fry or boil an egg and plop it on top (or on the side), with or without ketchup, and that's dinner. Not fancy, but filling, inexpensive, quick and easy farm food for when it's cold outside.
For tonight, I put some pork country ribs in my crock-pot, added a leftover tablespoon of garlic butter from the French Onion Soup we made a couple nights back, and some homemade BBQ sauce that takes about two minutes to mix up. The ribs will cook all day (while I'm painting my bedroom, among other things), I'll buy some rolls and shred the meat for sandwiches, make a coleslaw, and Ta-Dah -dinner. If you read this, please comment. I really would love to know for tonight, yesterday or tomorrow -What's for dinner?
