I think this is a Canadian relation.

Ok.

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

I used taco seasoned meat to make military SOS, and it changed the gravy entirely. Normally it tastes kind of like country gravy, maybe a little Worcestershire sauce.

Nope, turned the gravy dark brown and savory. I can't really explain what flavor it is, but I did enjoy it.

Also every recipe for SOS appears to be different. But most military style versions use ground beef instead of chipped beef. I used my grandpa's version.

Poured it over some biscuits.

We had quesadillas tonight with seasoned black beans, grated pepper jack cheese, cilantro, scallions, tomatoes, avocados on heated flour tortillas.  Everyone gets to make their own so the amounts of ingredients can be adjusted to personal preference.  Once everything is prepped, this can last for several meals.  It's pretty cheap and nourishing.  Good for hot summer days as it doesn't heat up the house.

Mom keeps mentioning how much she liked the Vodka fries.

golly you wikipedia, Vodka fries are notable! They should at least be under French Fries as a variant!
They are NOT disco fries or Poutine!

I tried looking up Vodka fries and all I got was sites that want to discuss how the Arby's fast food chain is selling Vodka flavored like French fries.  Say what?

I assume that what your mother likes is fries with tomato/cream based vodka sauce that would also be served over pasta?  I like to dip fries in A-1 sauce.  I think it's very much like HP Sauce.

I'm having tea, soon will eat scones with some of the jam I've been making lately.

On my bit of the internets Google gives me:

"What do you call french fries, cheese curd, and vodka sauce? Vladimir Poutine"

Ha!  We're not Putin up with that.  Soggy fries just can't cut it.
Back to the regular tea and scones.

Mixing things up a bit.  Tea and a banana nut muffin!

Used the convection oven for a frozen pizza. They've shrunk all of them but red baron, who tend to keep prices down with low quality.

It's passable, but I miss being able to get Wild Mike's.

Our grocery outlet caters to the AB&B set, so beer is pricy, and frozen pizza is cauliflower crust. I tried it once, ghastly stuff. Tastes like a fart smells.

I was deeply suspicious of cauliflower pizza until I had Open Nature Triple cheese at Safeway.  It's really good but kind of pricey.  They were giving it away one weekend as their "Saturday Sampler."  One pie barely feeds 2 adults, but it's good if you can find it cheap.

I'm eating homemade tabouli.  It's pretty good.  Leftover from a potluck.  I used our mint, tomatoes and lemon juice, so it is probably as good as anything I'd make in that dept.  The tomatoes I planted are starting to ripen so I suspect we'll be eating some spaghetti sauce soon.
