That sounds really good, but I would have to adjust a couple of items.  Iíll save the recipe.  Sauce sounds good.

Recently I posted a recipe for Escalloped Hamburg, a recipe from my school days (7th grade, I believe).  Bubble thought it had too many steps.  I made it today and I made it in one dish, a kind of frying pan type.  I browned the hamburger, then added diced tomatoes (mine had basil, oregano and one other herb in it but usually I would use plain diced tomatoes), added the butter and sprinkled flour over the concoction.  I added the onions and green pepper, also seasoned with salt and pepper.  When I was satisfied with the consistency, I threw a handful of crumbs over the dish and took some out for my lunch.  I had not had this for years so it was kind of nice to have it again.

MaryAnn, you can do so much with chopped meat. Sounds like what we first made in Home cooking class.  To day we are having clean out the refrigerator. There is some rice, vegetables, noodles left over pork and gravy plus white clam sauce. Think I should just put it out as buffate. I am going to make a green salad and jello. I do not think we will starve!

Gloria De, Tom, Dot and I went to a deli in Cannonsburg (NE of here) and had our lunch.  Tom and I treated Dot belatedly for her early June birthday.  Dot had a panini (don't know her meat), I had a turkey sandwich and Tom had a ham sandwich.  The sandwiches come with chips and pickle; I ate half of my sandwich and probably will have the other half for supper tonight.  The deli is small with about six tables and six booths.  Not too quiet and it is not a place where you'd want to have a quiet conversation - but the sandwiches are good and quite generous with the meat. 

Callie OK has a term for refrigerator left overs but I can't remember what it is.

Since Memorial Day and the potluck salad I made, I've been eating salads for just about every meal. Here is a new favorite. From "The Blond Cook."

Tomato, Avocado, and Basil Salad

Prep Time 10 minutes and four servings

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
2 ripe avocados, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
2 pints grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup loosely packed fresh basil ribbons (or chopped basil)
INSTRUCTIONS
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Alternately arrange the tomatoes and avocado in a medium bowl. Top with basil and drizzle with the balsamic vinaigrette. Serve immediately.

Angel, that salad sounds really good but I think I would substitute a few green onions for the garlic.  I have to be careful with anything in the onion or garlic family.  Iím definitely saving that recipe.

Iíve got an avocado getting ripe and need to use it soon.  Sometimes I just mash up an avocado with a little salt (sometimes a little lime juice) and eat it with some tostadas.  I like it that way and it is simpler than making guacamole.  I started eating avocados when my potassium was low instead of taking potassium tablets which upset my stomach.  Much more potassium in avocados than in bananas.

That sounds good too Jean. I used a local product, Alaskan Alder Smoked Sea Salt to add a bit of tang and some Hungarian paprika to the salad. I had a couple of avocados left over that I had initially planned for a fried egg on avocado toast meal. That, besides hummus is what I generally use avocados in. I copied your idea too.

Do you know that bananas have a protein that will react as lactose for some people? That is why I rarely use them as I am lactose intolerant as well as chemically allergic. I discovered this when I was at the doctor's trying to play detective over an allergy issue.

I  have two cups of chopped red, green and orange bell peppers from my last few salads, any ideas?

I eat my avocado like JeanFla and that is a regular supper meal for me.
My carer eats it mashed with a little honey and spread on bread.

The avocado with honey might be a bit different for me but my sister makes cakes and brownies with avocados as a main ingredient. You don't taste the avocado but they are especially decadent!

Angelface, I sautee red, green, and yellow peppers and serve them over boiled rice.  I think they are very tasty--but everyone has a different idea about tastiness!

Sue, you could add pork chops to that or make the peppers into a salsa as my sister suggested and put that over the rice and or pork chops. Thanks for a good idea!

Chicken salad sounds good.  I baked a small young chicken and we had chicken with noodles for two meals so chicken salad would be a nice change to use up some of the leftover chicken.
