Spaghetti, corn, and possibly garlic bread tonight. I'm going to try whole wheat spaghetti noodles tonight. I didn't like them the last time I tried them, but my daughter told me you have to cook them longer, so hopefully we will like it better this time.

Thai Beef-okra-eggplant-tomato curry served over cous-cous (too lazy to make rice) with marinated cucumbers and fresh mango as sides. We already ate this (since my supper is the DH's lunch). The curry was very nice.

2 T oil
1 large onion (diced)
1 tsp mustard seed
3 c sliced okra
1 eggplant diced
2 tomatoes
1 c thinly sliced beef (I used rib steak that was hanging around)
1 c white wine
1-2 tsp masala
3 t green curry paste
1-2 pods crushed cardamon
squeeze of lime juice
1 dried curry leaf (crumbled)
2 tsp fresh Thai basil
1 tsp fresh lemon mint
1 tsp fresh tarragon

Saute the onion and mustard seed. Add the other ingredients except the meat. Saute the meat separately, add to veggie mix. Cook over med heat about 20-30 minutes until eggplant and okra are soft. The okra did not turn "gummy" btw. Adjust seasoning to taste. I serve it over cous-cous (was originally going to quinoa, but the quinoa was behind the cous-cous in the fridge, so grabbed that, besides which, we still don't have running water).

I marinated the cucumbers last night

2 peeled and thinly sliced cukes
1 large onion, thinly sliced
Kosher salt
chilpolte chile powder
fennel seeds
sugar
white balsamic vinegar
some water

I thawed out a huge chicken breast half, bone in, skin on. I'll have bake it and serve it with dilly potatoes and carrots (boil potatoes and carrots until both are done, mash w lots of dill.) Easy on the gravy, it doesn't need it.

If you find a good whole wheat pasta please pass the information along. I have not had any luck with it but, I do enjoy the Dreamfield low carb pasta.

Thanks B

Bucky, lets just say that Ark supplies are out of stock in every hardware store in town! My tomato pots are in serious need of sun and I had to dump water out of several of my potted plants.

Ham is smelling yummy and I will be getting up soon to do the potatoes. I'm feeling pretty lazy at the moment. Kate and I shopped til we dropped today and I'm TIRED.
