On Thursdays Dad has a big meal for lunch at his senior's program. I went out for lunch with a young lady who used to be in our youth group (had fish and chips) so was not really hungry either. I joined him in his Thursday dinner - cheese toast and fruit.

All the dinner ideas I have read in this thread sound delicious, although, compared to my dinner its not that hard to be delicious, considering that my dinner was a sandiwch ( cheese and bread only).

Please visit my thread under Desserts/Cakes and Cupcakes...I need help urgently!!!

Thanks Frank.
I have a rack for the bottom. It keeps everything out of the liquid. Otherwise it gets that washed out or slow cooker look.

This is the kind of salad Mark wanted.

His dinner was a plain tossed salad with shredded cheddar, bacon bits and chopped celery. That was topped with sliced chicken tenders. On the side, was 3-bean salad and bread-n-butter. The dressing was italian. He tends to rather have more meat on his salads, than veggies. I'm just the opposite.



I had a few chicken tenders with celery and ranch dressing.

Thank you, babe. I just give him what he wants. When I get creative with food, it's mostly with myself. As long as he liked it, then all is well.

I prefer to have an ice berg lettuce and baby spinach salad with crumbled (real) bacon, cheddar, baby carrot, cucumber, celery, green onion and tomato. The chicken would not have been breaded, just seasoned, and baked in the oven, then sliced. That sliced chicken breast would atop the salad along with alittle more cheese and dressing on the side.
