We're having some roasted sweet Italian sausages with onions mushrooms and red bell peppers, topped with Trader Joe's pizza sauce. His will be on a Hogie roll, mine will not. Maybe some salad.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

DH is off to Michigan to visit his parents and cook some freezer meals for his dad. His mom is still in the nursing home after suffering a stroke in November.

I don't fly north in the winter

So I'm heating up more stuffed shells and will make a salad and garlic bread.

I cooked a pork tenderloin to 137F in the Sous Vide. Seared it afterward in a hot skillet and sauteed some apples, onions, fresh sage with a bit of cider vinegar and brown sugar. Steamed broccoli rounded out our meal.
In our house, dog hair is a condiment!
OMG! I decided to blog!

Sure wish it was mashed potatoes with milk gravy instead of cauliflower!!!
You know you can add 1 large potato to a head of cauliflower, steam instead of boil and mash like you would potatoes (milk and/or cream, and butter) and you basically end up with a "healthier" version of mashed taters. I actually kind of prefer it because the cauliflower gives it extra flavor. I've even made "tater cakes" with leftover.

My gravy was perfect. The veggies were great. The chuck roast was the toughest, chewiest piece of meat I ever tried to eat. Seasoned and browned, then cooked low and slow, it was close to inedible. I even took it out, sliced it very thinly and put it back in the gravy. Didn't help.

The meat is destined to be fished out, finely minced and put in soup. Very disappointed, as it came from a store here lauded for its meats.

We are having my mother's Greek meat pie (kreatopita), rice, and Greek style lima beans (cooked with scallions, dill, chopped tomatoes, and lots of olive oil).

Oh no Dawg!! It can't hurt to ask the butcher if they stand behind their meat, our does without question. I've just taken the receipt with me when making the complaint.

That's a great looking skillet Joey. I swear the picture was taken on my counter as it's an exact match to mine!!
I love the beautiful movement of the granite.

A hunk of leftover vacuum sealed rare cooked rib eye from the freezer, gently warmed, thinly sliced, and topped over a loaded up salad. Ranch dressing and croutons to top.

The sausage skillet dinners sound great.

Joey, I love those cast iron serving skillets! I used to have some of those years ago, not sure whatever happened to them. I loved sizzling hot steaks right in front of me at my own table. I might have to look them up again.

GG....best wishes to your in-laws.

Everyone's dinners sounds wonderful!

S&P, I LOVE that skillet and it's wooden landing pad, where did you find it?

Our supper this evening is a simple fare,

sauteed Brussel Sprouts, that I deconstruct, in some
BACON fat that I have in reserve in the`fridge at all times,
along with some minced garlic

steamed Greens Beans that were tossed with yet more
BACON fat and some granulated garlic

a small baked Yukon Gold Potato for DH, not me, I'm still
on that dang diet, I mean different way of looking at food,
dang it!

broiled (because I STILL do not have a grill)
b/s Chicken Thighs that have been seasoned
with Cavender's Salt Free All Purpose Greek Seasoning

this is DH's plate, mine is MUCH smaller
I chop up all meats that I cook, this way
it looks like you're having more food than
you really are... I also weigh everything,
can you believe that this is on 5 ounces of Chicken?
