the simplest way i have always made it is with scrambled hamburger with brown gravy , mashed potatoes and corn. layer hambuger in 9x9 baking pan on top of that put the corn and then top it off with mashed taters. then bake on 350 for about 20 minutes. there you are. ENJOY

After a convo on the phone with wife she said she might fix beanie weenies. Yuck. I didn't tell her that. Maybe I can persuade her to make cold pork and bean salad instead. We can survive well on simple tonight.

Here's my shepherd's pie recipe, Cyn:

brown hamburger w/chopped onion, S&P. Drain, put in the bottom of a casserole dish. Cover that with one can creamed corn, one can "regular" corn (this one drained), then top with mashed potatoes (your favorite recipe. Make peaks with the potatoes. You can throw on some butter, just a little, and some paprika. Bake at 350 till hot, bubbly and the peaks should be a little browned. Yum. Simple, but good.

Oh, I forgot! DH and I had a sub at the mall this afternoon. He wasn't hungry, so I finished up the last of the veggie Boboli pizza.

Have a wonderful night, all.

Oh, what a lovely feeling it is to arrive at Saturday evening without having gone in to - or even thought about - work all day long! It's been so long since I had a weekend like this, and it feels so amazingly good.

We slept luxuriously late - at least 8:30, maybe a bit after - then got up and met our daughter at the cafe down on Atwood. Had a wonderful and leisurely breakfast together, then we all went downtown to cruise around the Capitol Square at the Farmers' Market. Mid-August is the height of summer's bounty at the Market, and we were all heavy-laden with corn on the cob, squash, cherries, cauliflower, green beans, scallions, beets, melon, maple syrup and free-range beef and pork by the time we returned home again.

Then I got to do yard work! Ok, that sounds really lame, I know. But it has been weeks and weeks since I had time to do anything at all in the yard, and sometimes you just need to get your hands dirty. While the spouse mowed, I wore myself out edging and chopping back the grass that had encroached over the edge of the driveway and front walk, and boy, does it look better now. The weedy garden will have to wait until we get a good soaking rainstorm, as I have learned the hard way that there's no point in trying to pull weeds from rock-hard soil, but at least the edges of the lawn are neat again. And that'll make shoveling snow this winter a lot easier.

Supper tonight was a feast of the summer's bounty: porterhouse steaks (from Pec Valley Farm's stand at the Market this morning) on the grill, heavenly sweet bi-color corn on the cob (from the Ehr Family Farm's stand at the Market this morning), French green beans (from last week's CSA box), and platter of sliced tomatoes (from the garden this afternoon) and cukes (from the CSA box) drizzled with olive oil and sherry vinegar. Oh, and a Lake Louie Warp Speed Scotch Ale to wash it all down.

I am a supremely well-fed and contented BookWorm this evening. And I still have one more glorious, long, sunny day in which I do NOT have to go to work to look forward to!

Have a wonderful evening, all, and a beautiful Sunday. See you tomorrow!

Wife finally got home and did agree to pork and bean salad like her mom used to make. I had that and a tomato wedged up. Green tea for the mixer.
