The Daily Menu

Since I do most all the cooking around here (and enjoy it), people are always asking
"and what did the chef cook for supper last night ?"  So, for those I don't see on a
regular basis, this page is for you.  If you see an item that sounds interesting and
would like to give it a try, send me an e-mail and I'll try to accommodate.  The foods
I cook are generally a combination of (1) what is on sale at the local grocery stores
(2) a rounded, balanced meal, and (3) using leftovers (revised) for another meal.
Hope you enjoy and hopefully this page will give you ideas to be creative in your
cooking adventures.  Shown is the current month with previous months listed in
