11/2/10 What's For Dinner?

I'm planning to take the last zucchini and cooking it up with onion and garlic. I took out the last 3 Brats to thaw. Either I'll just cook them up with the zucchini or something. I've also got a nice big sweet potato, big enough to cut into 2 or 3 dinner size chunks. Sweet potato is easy to just nuke and eat with lots of butter.

What are you planning?

I have a funky work schedule today (I do tech support for elections in the midwest) but I have a 4 hour break from about 1 to 5... I think I'll just do a batch of chicken noodle soup with the leftover carcass & meat from the roast chicken from a couple weeks ago (I had stashed it in the freezer). I have some stock/broth already made so that should give it the boost it needs since 3 or 4 hours isn't too long. I bought frozen egg noodles this time so it's a little heartier. Luckily work is feeding me for dinner... it will be take out from somewhere... just not sure yet.

Right now I'm unsure. A neighbor's visiting mom was supposed to give me a class in Vietnamese spring rolls, but she got sick yesterday so I don't know if it is going to happen. Then on Thursday we're leaving for a road trip to Colorado, so I want to use up any perishables. So it will be either a spring roll based meal or something with a lot of green onions and romaine lettuce.

Hello everyone,

Beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Dinner tonight will be smothered pork chops, mashed potatoes, and sauteed peas and shallots.

Enjoy the day

Well, I am pretty much just feeding Dad tonight and it is a hockey game so it is something to eat in front of the TV (he had hot dogs last night). If I feel up to going to the store I might get some corned beef and rye bread and make him a nice sandwich with tomato and cucumber on the side.

As for me, food is not my friend right now as it sets off whatever is causing my pain. So I am sticking to protein drinks.
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

All the mummy dogs posted this weekend for Halloween fare got me hungry for pigs in blankets. So I got the crescent rolls and smoked sausage. We'll have that with some baked beans and baked apples.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
