Sunday supreme , the third time is a charm!

I've decided to take a day at a time.   I am working on a class on my studio and hope I get to teach it.   At least the subject is a challenge and probably the best thing that could happen; it makes my mind stop racing.

I did speak my are two papers in our small town, one os an on line paper,and  the other a regular newspaper.   The in line paper tried to make it sound like the antique mall we work (ed) at was closed two years ago.  She was clearly biased in her writing from the get go.m I called her on it and she retracted saying they wanted more upscale tenants in the building.  The building , after they remodel will have ten thousand square feet of beer establishments and a art museum.  They want to be a stopping off point for the commuters.  The bus, ferry, and train stations are near by.

My comment.

I did a while blog, it was erased.   So goes my day. I'll try to recap.

Trying new recipes is a good way to mix up dinner time and keep frugal eating fresh and interesting.
Recipes are found just about everywhere these days and can often be adapted to meet your needs.

Stuffed tomatoes
A good recipe when tomatoes are in avoidance and cheap.
6 medium tomatoes.  ( or three large ones cut in half.  )
1 cup orzo, cooked and drained
1/2 cup grated cheese
1T melted butter
Basil, parsley, salt and pepper
6 T reserve flesh, drained.

Cut small slice off the top of the tomatoes . Scoop out the fleet leaving some wall on the tomato.  Reserve the flesh.    Make stiffing, fill tomatoes . Place in a baking pan and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until soft and warm.

This recipe came from my sisters recipe box.   It was from a friend of my parents and came from WWII when some food items were rationed and some you couldn't get at all.   Red velvet,cake came about during the war because you couldn't get chocolate and someone wanted chocolate cake.
