Just finished dinner

Used up the glut of veggies I had left over from last week.

I literally had 12 carrots I turned into soup with some pots and a big bag of spinach. Added some corriander, cumin and finished off with some pancetta.

I found some beautiful asparagus today so we are having roast chicken, pasta salad, roast asparagus and baby cucumbers. I had to make myself a cucumber sandwich while I was cooking. Our gd is coming over after work so we won't have leftovers.

We had baked chicken parm, steamed broccoli, and pasta with marinara sauce. I also made tossed green salads with Trader Joe's Low-Cal Basil Dressing. It's my new all-time favorite dressing. It is the perfect blend of garlic, basil, a hint of cheese, and a little more garlic!

I saw YTís thread about Frikadellen and I had no idea what it was. On one website I saw, it was called ďGerman meat pattiesĒ. Iíve got a friend born and raised in Hamburg, Germany, and he still lives there. He speaks good English (but I donít speak any German ), so I asked him if he had ever heard of Frikadellen and if he had a recipe. Hereís his reply:

"Lol, sure. Itís ground meat with onions and breadcrumbs. I think itís called meatballs in English. I can ask my sister who is very good at healthy cooking (reduced fat etc.)."

Iím still waiting on his sisterís recipe. I need to bug him about it tomorrow. Iíve only been at DC for a short while, but WOW at all Iíve learned of late. You guys are having me constantly look things up!
