Went with pasta. Found some homemade sausage in the freezer (before I found any shrimp). Used a bit of the shellfish stock, black olives, artichoke hearts, peppers, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, tomato sauce, chickpeas, bok choy, lemon zest. I'm stuffed. I'm thinking a poached egg on the leftover sauce with a side of rice would be tasty in the morning...

Looks delish, CWS!

I'm having a couple of talapia fillets poached in butter with garlic and dill.

Thanks, Kylie and Zee. I just pulled things out of the freezer, cupboard, and zested a lemon. My usual style of cooking--winging it in the kitchen--tasting as I went. I did add cayenne pepper and a wee bit of my friend's homemade curry powder to the sauce. It was very tasty.

I made Danish Red Cabbage - Rødkål (Roedkaal) and Linda's pot of pork. We had it with leftover mashed potatoes and leftover brown basmati rice.

This time the V-slicer worked just great for slicing the red cabbage. I guess I just had to figure out the right way to do it.

The metal mesh glove helped. I didn't bother with the food holder thingee. Have you been using yours much?

Nope. Just the one time for those onions.
I'm glad it didn't cost much.
