Homemade chicken noodle soup tonight. Two chicken leg quarters, 16 oz. pack of Linguini, garlic, spices.

The family and a lot of the local community is sick. Chicken noodle soup is comforting if nothing else.

Tomato soup for lunch and taco soup for dinner. I guess you can call it a soupy day. My wife made the taco soup a couple of days ago and we had left overs in the fridge. I made fried rice a few days ago and we had left overs in the fridge. I filled my soup bowl half way up and added some of the fried rice to the bowl. It was actually delicious.


Many on here make and eat meat balls. I don't. For some reason, I prefer my ground beef in just about any shape but round. When I do decide I want some meat balls, we head to an Ikea store and eat Swedish meat balls in their little restaurant. I also like the Lingonberry berries they serve. To me, the berries seem like a Swedish version of our cranberries. The Ikea meat balls are much smaller than Italian or American meat balls. I don't feel like I am eating a golf ball. They are great with the sauce they provide.

Don, what's an Ikea store? I had to look it up https://www.google.com/search?source...31.uqVJ0xRNXSk Why would they sell food?

My son just explained that Ikea stores are huge.

We haven't been to an Ikea store in a couple of years. Haven't needed any furniture in many years, but I do like to shop the areas where they sell unusual kitchen stuff. I always come out with either some good kitchen knives or cutting boards or something for very good prices. My main reason for going is for the Swedish meat balls. The restaurant is set up like a cafeteria. You go through the line and tell the servers what to put on your plate. The food is great, but I have always believed they will close the restaurants some day. We go through the line without waiting usually. Normally only ten or twelve people will be eating, but they have seating for about one hundred people. I don't see how they can afford to keep the place open.


Since Nebraska Furniture opened a store, they probably sell ten times the amount of product as Ikea and the stores are only a few miles apart. Nebraska Furniture has the largest store I have ever been in. They sell everything from sporting goods, to packaged food, to electronics, to furniture. They don't serve any food to eat inside the store. A super Walmart would only be the entrance to a Nebraska Furniture. When Warren Buffettt does something, he does it big.

I know about Nebraska Furniture - you can't watch the weather without seeing a commercial for it. I just don't watch much television an don't have any reason to go to the DFW Metroplex. The thought of looking at furniture while waiting on your steak works for me

Boston Butt roast is always cheap here. It's 'on sale' for $1 per pound. Regular price about $1.39 per pound. What recipes do you have? I slow cook it, but I guess you could grind it, smoke it, pull it, make sausage out of it, or ???

You all know my situation - I'm just trying to feed them something different and good.
