With that we will have potatoes and I guess if the above recipe is not for me, I will fill up on potatoes.
It sounds delicious though and I can't see where you could go wrong. Let us know how it turned out.

Suppertime- I'll cut a few potatoes in half, score them brush w/olive oil and shake onion & garlic powder on them, put them flat side down and bake coverd w/foil for hmmm, about 35 or 40 minutes.
Serve with the warmed chicken legs and whatever green veggie I can fine.

Awww...I know how you feel but it sounds like you know how to make do with what you have. Years ago when my husband and were buying our first house, we ate pinto beans and pork shoulder for over a week. He's never looked at a pork shoulder since or maybe it was a port butt.

We are having spaghetti with meat sauce too. Throwing a little spinach into the spaghetti water for the manditory nutrition factor. Also a little loaf of artisan bread.

We had to pay Property taxes and the mortgage payment this week. DH started a new job and won't get paid for two weeks. We are not going grocery shopping this week, but just clearing out what's in the freezer.
