It Smells Good in Here

I've been cooking all day - it seems like it, anyway, and I still haven't figured out what's for breakfast in the morning.  Usually I either fix something Friday or at least get it mixed up, so that Sabbath morning breakfast is really easy for me.  It might just end up being cereal or yogurt tomorrow at this rate.

I did fix Corn Lover's Veg Stew for the potluck tomorrow, and it smells so good.  I haven't had it in a while, so I'm looking forward to that.  Right now I've got Stewed Lamb cooking.  I got the recipe from My Wooden Spoon - it looked so good that I just had to try it.  I didn't have any ribs, so I'm using lamb chops, and I used a can of diced tomatoes because I didn't have fresh.  Hopefully it will turn out as good as I think it will.  I'm thinking a little Basmati rice to go with it and a salad, and we'll have a really good meal.  Neither one of the kids will be home - Beth is working until 9pm, and Cory went to a school dance with some friends.  So there is more than enough for Jeffrey and me.  We better not eat too much or we'll be looking for some nordictrack coupons or good exercise DVDs on sale - because we'll have to work all that food off somehow.

Anyway, time to go back to cooking - gotta take the lid off the lamb and get the rice started.  I wonder what kind of wine goes with stewed lamb?  I guess I'll leave that up to Jeffrey.
