My weight never changed until I was 30. Then my metabolism started slowing down--as everybody does--and I had two choices: eat less or exercise more. I chose the latter.

That sounds very tasty, both the Asian shrimp and the ciabatta. I've cooked both and hope to cook them again soon!

DH is still raving about tonight's dinner!

We used to go to a local restaurant called "Wings" that has wing night every Sunday. You get 10 wings of one type (there are over 30) for $3.90 and we usually ordered two or three kinds with a Caesar salad. However, we stopped because they dredge the wings in flour which DH can't have.

So tonight I made Salt and Pepper wings and "Fish Wings" (a fish sauce and Thai sweet chili sauce) with no flour, gluten, soy, dairy or egg involved and they were mighty tasty if I do say so myself!

Rex Sole Meuneire & Twice Baked Potatoes

Here's my entry for tonight. I finally found some sole (frozen). I stocked it and today I ran down to the wire and had no alternatives until I remembered the frozen sole. It turned out okay but I'm still looking for a good seafood monger.

Sole Meuniere: Melt butter in your pan until it just starts to brown. In the mean time you flour your fish (that's where the word Meuneire comes in, AFAIK French for miller, as in milling flour, thus the name of the recipe. When the fish is sufficiently burned (should be falling off the bone) you reserve the fish in a warm place (your oven on low?) and then deglaze your pan with lemon juice to make a sauce a la minute. You should probably consider that...

Potatoes: Pre-bake them then take them out and let them achieve room temperature. Scoop out the insides then mix them with cream or milk, and chopped green onions. Top with grated cheddar cheese then bake for about 20 minutes.

Appetizer: I was socializing with my next door neighbors and suggested I could go home for a few minutes and bring back an appetizer--the jalapeno poppers I've discussed here at DC in other topics. So I made them and luckily they were well received!

So tonight: rex sole Meuneire and twice baked potatoes:

[QUOTE=taxlady;1197769]Nope, don't do gyro sandwiches. I might do some sandwiches in pita (It can't be a gyro if it wasn't cooked on something that rotates. ) Thanks for the idea. I should start some yogourt cheese tonight, so I can make some tzatziki.

I'm thinking shepherd's pie tomorrow.[/QUOTE



tzatziki, that's the ticket! great with lamb, among others. shepherd's pie sounds wonderful to me too. rarely have i ever had it made with lamb, as it should be, rightfully.

So far so good, still thin perhaps because I'm active. No longer eat everything I see though

Your dinner looks fab
