Wells are a menance especially to a public business. In NH the NHES ( nh environmental safety) has controll on testing the water. 2 times a year you have to do a basic test that runs around 300 bucks for bacteria's. Then once a year comes the big one where they look to see the levels of Iron, copper, bla bla bla. This test runs around 700 bucks.

Even business with city fed water has to do tests to see if mold, alegea or anything is collecting on public faucets or drinking fountians.

arghh - gotta go to work and fluff flowers.

DDIL made chili tonight. We had a Trunk or Treat event in the church parking lot so we had the chili afterward. A friend and I had made up 150 bags of goodies. We ran out. So glad someone else had lots of extras to share. We had 16 cars lined up and also had hot dogs and drinks. We served over 200 hot dogs. It was fun, but very cold. I wore lots of layers.

My turn to cook, so it was back to the Easy Chinese book. Deep-fried Lemon Chicken, Sichuan Green Beans and steamed rice. Turned out surprisingly well, although again I dirtied a lot of dishes during prep. Made Ghiardelli brownies for dessert (I know, its not Chinese, but its better than fortune cookies!).

I'd never heard of braciole, but you got me curious so I looked it up. Sounds good! Wikipedia says it's called involtini when wrapped around little bundles of cheese and stuff. How did you fix it Ronnie?

Nothing fancy Don, flattened a bit more than the store cut, added parmesan cheese, oregano, crushed red pepper (we like it a bit spicy) lots of shopped garlic and salt, rolled it and tied it and browned in olive oil on all sides. Simmering in your favorite tomato sauce makes it tender and melt in your mouth good. My MIL used to stuff hers with an egg, bread mixture years ago, I never cared for the stuffing part so, eliminated that.

Robin: Was it Vietnane Thai in Torrington? (I'm making a bucket list of Thai restaurants in CT I want to visit). The last time I had drunken noodles (in Middletown, I think) they were mildly hot but not five alarm.

A pizza parlor in Westbrook went upscale with designer pizzas, so of course we had to try one. (Shrimp, basil, tomato, asiago cheese). Nice diversion from pepperoni and mushrooms, but a little pricey. Just to give you an idea of what their cutting edge in pizzas were like, two of their house pies were
Espresso-Smoked Pork, Mashed Potatoes, Sour Cream & Scallions
and
Kielbasa, Roasted Beets, Fontina, Crispy Shallots & Sour Cream

If 70 is the new 40, I guess I'm 50.

I finally persuaded DW to accompany me to a Brazilian restaurant that opened this summer. I had the Rodizio, where you get a huge salad plus 3 side dishes and the waitress brings around spits with roasted meat on them and slices off pieces until you say uncle! I sampled the chicken, Moroccan pork, chipotle sausage, top sirloin and spiced lamb, but was so stuffed that I had to pass up the traditional last course of pineapple. We both enjoyed a really different dining experience.

They were the best ones I've had, I don't know why. We bought a bunch last time we were there. They are juicier and really tender. Maybe they don't try to make them lean pigs.

guessing it needed a stitch or two .. I have those funny band aids for things like this that seal up and form a scab .. I can see a little blood pooling under there.. nice thing about these is when there is moisture it puffs up so if i bang it or grab something it won't hurt as bad.. sad part is I do know better and should use the guard.. esp when exhausted from cooking all day.. what a goof

Any bread makers?
Do you let the yeast rise once then shape into loaves and rise again, or rise twice, then shape into loaves for a third rise?
I've seen it both ways, and maybe that's why I've had trouble from only rising once before shaping into loaves.

The Mayflower Inn served Baby Arugla Salad with candied fresh figs, hazelnuts, thin slices of beef & cheese, Daube of Beef...fancy name for beef stew with wild mushrooms, vermouth, bacon, & onions over pureed potatoes, and chestnut baked Alaska...It was delish, no cooking, no clean up, I thanked my cousin & nephew profusely for treating 16 family members...my niece & her DH couldn't come...Laurie had to work at the hospital.

DW had a lot of leftover cilantro, and found an asian recipe for Shredded Chicken With Ginger and Cilantro from the Gourmet website(june2007) her eyes lit up. We didn't happen to have any chicken in the freezer, so she went with some leftover pork shoulder. Turned out pretty good, but she made too much for the two of us. After 3 days of a cold salad, I'm volunteering for a hot meal tonight.

Added later: Had roasted salmon with Quinoa Upma, Szechuan Veggies!
Mission accomplished.
