It is the Cheltenham Festival this coming week. Best of the best National Hunt racing.

Aubie, fancy looking up the runners and having a flutter?

I don't use them for dumplings as its harder to get the right consistency. they don't have any excess flour.
This is why I cut them in fourths, toss into a gallon size zip bag that has flour in it, shake them up, then fish them out and drop into the boiling broth not caring about grabbing some extra flour along with the piece of biscuit.

Supper was a hot pocket salad and some leftover mashed cauliflower. I was so tired that it was all I could do to shower and eat before falling into bed.

I had to call yesterday because my paycheck wasn't deposited like it usually is and I was concerned that they were trying to not pay me because I gave 2 weeks notice and they're salty about it. I am working all of my scheduled shifts during those 2 weeks as well. She said that they switched payroll companies and for some reason only half of the employees info transferred over and so the other half had paper checks at the office this week. Well it would have been nice to have gotten a phone call or text about it lady! Grrr. Just one of many reasons I'm leaving that company.

Good news is that I started my new job this week and I'm already so much happier there! I actually get to be outside and active.

Plans for the weekend are rest and lazy day today and work tomorrow. This coming week is going to be another crazy busy and long one with both jobs and class. But after that it'll just be the new one and class.

Odd question but what do y'all pack in your sack lunch?

Life begins after COFFEE

A sandwich with ham, turkey or chicken slices, a Nakd bar, which is cold pressed fruit, or some other type of fruit and nut bar, a banana and apple. Occasionally a clementine, pear or apricots.

I always feel like i have to make an attempt at healthy, as my work always has a pile of muffins, cakes, sweets, boxes with bite sized millionaire's shortbread, plain shortbread, brownies and chocolate biscuits on our break room kitchen table. I'm not always good at ignoring them!

A flask of hot water if I'm out of the office.

@egrogan totally forgot about this until I started chicken fried rice for tonight.

I find the trick to Spanish rice is to stir the rice in oil and stir until translucent and lightly browned. Also helps if you have a Dutch oven and bake it.

I don't do recipes so this is my best guess for a small family.

You can use turmeric in place of saffron but saffron is what I use.

Heat oven to 375

Put 1/4 tsp saffron in 2-3 tbsp warm water and let steep

Add 2tbsp of oil to Dutch oven at med high and when hot add medium onion diced and a few cloves garlic minced. Lower to med heat and add 1 cup
basmati rice or long grain. White works best. Stir until grains are translucent and starting to brown. Add veg or chicken broth - 2 cups. I use homemade which is actually a bone broth. You'll also add several Roma tomatoes diced, 1 large bell pepper diced and 1 small jalapeno minced. Stem and seed the peppers. You can use canned like rotel but in summer I use fresh. Also add 1tsp coriander, salt and black pepper to taste. Stir well, cover and bake for about 30min. Let sit 5 when done then fluff and add fresh minced cilantro. Doesn't take a lot.

You can also add chicken thighs and peas when you bake if you want a one pot meal.

Hot dogs - mayo and mustard with chili and cheese. Ketchup and mustard in fridge. We don't eat it fast enough for any other location.

Pancakes are usually buttermilk with pecans and bananas this time of year. I'm usually running out of the blueberries we picked and froze.

Sack lunch is left overs or chicken salad (roasted chicken left overs, mayo, walnuts or pecans, cranberries and tart, crisp apples)

I like my ketchup just they way it is. Only change has been to go to something with out high fructose or really any fructose corn syrup. I don't use it much - hash browns would be what I add it too.

Thanks @QtrBel . Have never baked it but I can totally see how that would really concentrate the flavors. I think I have everything in your ingredient list so may just give it a try this week!

Thanks for taking the time to write it down-I hear you on cooking without a recipe!

My son makes this rice dish that is also an awesome one pot meal. His friend makes it with lamb but we do beef. Stew meat works perfect. I always keep a couple of pounds on hand when I see it one sale. I'll ask him about that and put it here some time later. It uses seasons I typically don't use and I was pretty hesitant to try it but turned out really well.
