We have been having spinach salad most nights, because I still have a few gallon bags full of spinach in the frig. Tonight I added snow peas, red onion, minced garlic all from the garden, as well as some celery, carrots and red pepper hummus, and garlic croutons I cheated and toasted with butter, with a homemade vegan ranch dressing.

For some bizarre reason I want fish tonight, but I like crispy deep fat fried fish. You wouldn't think it would be so hard to find something like that here in the Northwest, but most of the fish places up here bake their fish and besides not being crunchy (I'm looking at you, Ivar's), it tastes very bland.

So since I don't want to drive the 30 miles and back to Long John Silver's, I'm going to my favorite fish place, a diner at the local airport if you can believe it. Their prices are horrendous, but for a couple of filets, I can deal with it for once.

So that's dinner. For desert later I'm making a cream cheese and pumpkin layered no-bake pie (well, except for the cream cheese crust which just came out of the oven).

Nope, not losing any weight tonight, I guess.

We had tacos Friday. Today was poached salmon. Hot weather food is on the menu until fall.

Himself was busy doing a few repairs around the house ( I know!), so by the time he had the chops done the rice and beans were a tad dry. I ended up adding a can of roasted tomatoes with chilies to jazz it up. He also grilled some fresh pineapple. Delicious supper tonight. Well, except for a tired avocado that had been lost in the fruit drawer. Ended up pitching the poor thing.

Wow, wow WOW!
Everyone's meals sound just inspirational tonight!!!
After our LARGE LUNCH aka Supper this afternoon (as my GreatGrandma would call it Supper, we would always have our big meal mid-day in the Summer at her house, and then maybe a sandwich or fresh fruit in the evening time), I thought, ya know, we'll probably be hungry anyways later on this evening, so I grilled some B/S Chicken Thighs with some Broccolini, MMM!
Well, I guess we'll save that for tomorrow, we're really not hungry at all.
It seems that mostly in the Summer Time, having a mid-day meal is best and
maybe a small snack in the evening. Thanks Ma!!

The meat in the Instant Pot sounds good, GG - but I would have to take out the jalapeno. Mom has an ulcer and that would just make it worse. I've never had mango salsa. Tried mango one time. I liked it, but it didn't like me. You didn't want to be around me for a day or two.

We had homemade beefaroni with the leftover spaghetti sauce from Sunday.
