I don't know if it was the same brand, but I've eaten sweet potato tots and they are delicious. I enjoy pairing them with something I plan on cooking in the oven and cooking both in the same pan.

I've been lazy all day after feeling like I had heat exhaustion yesterday. It's hot here and too early to be this hot. 91 under the carport, WOW=too early.

I did get up early and helped my sister set up for a farmers market then stopped by the store and scored a $10 rack of beef ribs. I cooked them on the drum smoker using oak, these are so addicting. I added onions, bell peppers and bbq sauce to spice up a can of baked beans. I ate this about 3 today and I'm watching the race snacking on ribs.

I'm on my own till tomorrow so I only needed ribs and beans. Tomorrow I'm boiling crawfish for Mothers Day.

My killer Shih Tzu also loves the rib snacks he's been getting. We're having a Redneck testosterone day, BBQ, cocktails and NASCAR.

I hope everyone had a good day eating, transplanting and checking on the garden!!!

Lots of things to make with a left over sweet potatoes; pat them dry and fry them, gnocchi with ricotta cheese and pesto, pop overs or a twist on Yorkshire puddings, sweet potato custard tarts.....

I like Cheetos and I really like cranberry sauce , the smooth canned one, with turkey or pork or even with some fish. I like cranberry vanilla custard ice cream, too, made with the chunky canned cranberry sauce in the homemade ice cream; cranberry sorbet made with the smooth canned jelly is good in the summer, too.

Even jalapeno ice cream can be good ( I used to only use the red ripe ones for that hint of sweet and lovely color), though since Rob isn't here to eat it, I no longer make it.

Everyone has their own tastes in foods.

Those ribs look so juicy and tasty! The beans, too.

Thanks Imp.

I stripped the meat off a rib and made little corn tortilla tacos. These were good, so simple using what I had.

Leo, the killer Shih Tzu had a great day, he was sleeping so hard he didn't wake up after the first pic.

We will be adding sugar snap peas, baby corn, and possibly Hokkien noodles (We have not tried them.) I was thinking they look like Udon noodles just a little smaller. Udon noodles are from Japan and Hokkien noodles are from China. I thought they all come from HEB (A grocery store in Texas) If for some reason we don't like the Hokkien noodles - there are Nissin brand ramen noodles in the pantry that can take their place.

The homemade egg rolls will also be shrimp, cabbage instead of bok choy, bean spouts, and I'm sure there's more that I'm forgetting. Of course, the mothers chose the ingredients and what we're going to eat. I'll be teaching our son and DIL how to steam broccoli in the microwave. When done using plastic wrap over the ramekin - the broccoli doesn't lose its taste/flavor, and you can add more to the taste/flavor with spices and the like.

Cheesecake for dessert. It's odd having desserts twice a week for us, but it's mother's day.

Macaroni Soup. Very simple. Boil macaroni. Add beef bouillon cubes to make a tasty broth. That's it. Yum. From my childhood.

Sounds yummy, Salt! You will please post as to the noodles? I have some dried, but haven't used them as yet, curious as to flavor, etc..

Yesterday I stopped off at the store to get something to eat.
I didn't want to go to the store but as I put my signal light on to get onto the feed ramp to get on the highway the person in that lane floored it and cut me off.
So I stopped at the store and got out fast with only one or two things.
It was like I had somehow ended up in the middle of the great wildebeest migration of Africa.
So what ever I have tonight will involve eggs and bacon or maybe pasta.

Here is a Picture of the HEB in Bastrop the day before Mothers day.

Our findings - The Hokkien noodles are noodles. Nothing special or different about them.

I also have some dried udon noodles that I haven't used as yet... hmmm.

Was a lazy cook this evening, made more tacos, but instead of the tortillas, used bigger leafs of lettuce as the wrap. Good and not too heavy for the hot weather.
