    I also have kept up my bread baking hobby, and have added sandwich thins to the repertoire. These are sold in the stores and claim to only be 100 calories, so they are a hit with people who want to limit their caloric and carb intakes. Shown here are the honey whole wheat variety, but I make them with my white, Italian & rye recipes as well. If you make these you'll never go back to the store bought ones that taste like cardboard.

    If you already bake bread, these are simple to make. I take a 2-loaf recipe and split the dough in half(ish). I them cut off 2.3 oz of dough and shape in a ball to rest. When they are all shaped (1/2 loaf makes 12 thins) roll them into discs about 5" and let rest for a few minutes. Then I like to "dock" them like they do with pizza dough so they don't rise too high. Put on a parchment covered sheet pan, cover with a towel and rest for 30 minutes while you preheat your oven to 400F. Uncover them, give them an egg wash, then sprinkle some rolled oats on top. Use regular or instant oats. Pop in the oven for 13 minutes and they're done. Allow to cool, cut them horizontally in half, bag them and freeze. When you want one just put it in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds and they are thawed.

    OMG, this turned out so good that I had to share it here. Diced Russet taters, hard cooked eggs, diced celery, grated carrot, celery seed, Hellman's mayo, sour cream, sweet pickle relish, salt, fresh ground pepper, topped with sliced eggs, parsley and Spanish paprika. As with most salads, no measuring, just go by feel and taste.

    So the fish thread got me hungry for some fried fish so Saturday I removed some crappie from the deep freeze and fried it up.

    The crappie were first dusted in flour that I seasoned with black pepper, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. Then they hit the egg/milk wash and finally I coated them in instant mashed tater flakes. Then fried them up in the skillet and served it with cucumbers, green onions and tomatos.

    The fried crappie looks delicious! I love a good fish fry.

    I made a beef stir fry with vegetable fried rice for dinner. We have enough left over for dinner tomorrow.

    I cooked up some speckled butter beans this evening, along with some fried cabbage, hot water corn bread, and some cold fresh sliced tomatoes, onions. Dessert was some of the hot water corn bread topped with peaches, that had been peeled, pitted, and sliced into a pan. Added some Splenda Brown Sugar, along with some plain Splenda, some cinnamon, and some cloves, cooked down to a think syrup. Served hot! No pictures, it went fast!

    I woke up at 4:30AM and was in the kitchen making meat loaf until 6:20AM. An hour and a half later, it was done. But, it had to rest for at least an hour. 9:00AM and it was ready for slicing. Made a meat loaf sandwich with pepper jack cheese and was ready for the Formula 1 race!

    Sunday I grilled up two chickens. Nothing fancy just put a dry rub on them and grilled for about 4 hours and basted them with apple juice as they grilled. One was consumed on Sunday.

    I also grilled up some cornbread to go with it and then made some gravy from the drippings and apple juice. Served it with mashed taters and corn.

    The second chicken is going to be chopped up tonight for chicken salad sandwiches. I’ve done this before and it’s a long way to go for chicken salad, but you can’t beat the grilled chicken flavor once it’s mixed up.

    We had some grilled chicken leftover from yesterday's dinner, so I made a quick Spanish rice (1C rice, 2C chicken broth & 1C mild salsa all cooked together) then diced up the chicken and mixed it in with the rice. A veggie side and we called it "DINNER."

    I made chicken salad from one of the left over birds that I grilled Sunday.

    Here’s how I made it.

    First I removed the skin. Then I chopped/shredded the meat. Added 3 diced celery stalks, 1 diced green pepper, 1 bunch diced green onions, squeezed juice from one lemon, a couple pinches of the dry rub that I used when grilling it, black pepper to taste, 3 teaspoons of spicy brown mustard and mayonnaise to taste. I like enough mayonnaise to cover the meat but not make it soupy/watery. Mix well.

    I served it on a wheat bun topped with romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and banana peppers. The picture I took doesn’t show the banana peppers cause I actually thought of that after I took the photo.
