I'm still cooking,but I've been cooking things I had posted about before or stuff I don't really have recipes for. For example, I made the lemon-dill salmon one day. The other day I got roasted chicken from the grocery and made potato salad to go with it. Also made broccoli for me and Kat and baby peas for Dennis and John.

I don't really have a potato salad recipe. I simply cook some potatoes in bite-sized pieces, boil some eggs and chop them up, chop up celery and onions, toss it all together with some Mayo, sour cream, dill, garlic, and salt and pepper. Sprinkle some paprika on top to make it look festive and chill for several hours. It's good.

Then, last night I made fried rice for John and Lo Mein for me. I just chopped up some vegies and saute'd them in peanut oil. Then I divided the vegies and tossed some with cooked brown rice and soy sauce for the fried rice and tossed the rest with cooked spaghetti noodles and some sweet chili sauce and soy sauce for me. Both had a little garlic and fresh grated ginger root, too.

Today is a left over day so left over fried rice and lo mein and chicken sandwiches.

I made the cake and the salad yesterday. http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/chocolate-torte-169955/

I think I under cooked the cake by about 5 minutes. It was a tad sticky, but it was so very delicious. I used sour cream for the topping and did not whip it to peaks, but just until a thick sauce and drizzled that over the cake. This cake is not very sweet, but is so chocolaty.

Today I will make the chicken and potatoes.
