Dinner - Monday, October 16th

What is everyone having for dinner today?

After a rather pleasant fall-like weekend, this is a true Monday. Cold, windy and crappy. And rainin' like a mad bandit. This'll knock leaves off the trees plenty.

I had something else planned for tonight's dinner but, after looking outside, I decided today was a minestrone day. If this isn't a soup day, I don't know what is. Mmm, mmm, good!

Turnip curry....one of my favourites! Vegetarian, lowfat, light but warming all at the same time. I usually have it either alone, or with a pilau or biriani style rice, but tonight its plain boiled rice.

gonna make a pasta dish to use up a large quantity of fresh broccoli, saute chopped broccoli with garlic, bit of lemon juice and parmesan cheese sprinkled on top, with a lovely potato salad I saved back a few portions of from the week end potluck/weinie roast.

Yes, minestrone soup and curry sounds great and for that matter Greek Fasolada (Spicy Bean Soup) as well!

A small slice of pork fillet, two new potatoes and some green beans. All eaten much earlier than usual as I'm off for an operation on my nose tomorrow (not plastic surgery, so I'll look just as bad as ever afterwards). Wish me luck.

Pork roast, potatoes, gravy, some kind of cooked veggie, crisp green salad with lots of tomato, and if I continue to feel this good we may have some kind of freshly baked dessert too!
