Got inspired by the peanut butter thing..I had hunan dumplings with a home made peanut sauce, special fried rice and costco egg rolls...

Bacon and egg casserole and banana bread. I used apple sauce in place of butter in the banana bread.

I had some leftover rotisserie chicken, so I made chicken tortilla soup with home fried corn tortilla wedges. Black beans/onion/fire roasted corn/red and green bell pepper was colorful in the chicken stock with a can of Rotel Mexican tomatoes. Yumm, and enough for lunches.

Oh MAN! I'm stuffed!
That was really good... DH and I were talking about this Honey Baked Ham over dinner and have decided that the next time go back down to S.AZ we'll buy another boneless Ham to stash in the deep freeze
And Steve... steamed Sweet Potatoes are the way to go!
Not mushy and sticky, ooey-gooey sweet but firm-ish and savory...
It dawned on me as I was cooking them, that this is how we cooked any sort of tuber in Hawaii.

Mmmm....wonderful sounding hearty dishes this evening.

CG and Kay....I LOVE the sound of those soups. Dang, it's hard to cook things like that for one unless I'm sure I can commit to enjoying them for several days, or they freeze well.

This afternoon's dinner was a meatball (they multiply in the freezer) sandwich on a toasted French roll. I spread a little marinara sauce on the roll and was out of mozzarella, so topped the hot meatballs with Havarti. Roasted sweet potato wedges sprinkled with cinnamon for a side. I was only able to finish half of the sandwich so the other half will get warmed up for breakfast tomorrow.

I had a senior moment, and left a primary ingredient out to thaw... last night. I found it this afternoon. Soooo, I ended up playing like a kid with a chemistry set, and experimenting with a few food items, and eating the results.

It was a pretty eclectic mix of stuff, that will eventually end up in one of my mad scientist cooks. A lot of the experimenting involved my deep fryer. I learned a lot about a deep fryer and corn tortillas.

I ate a bunch of corn tortillas deep fried to varying degrees. They can go from warm and tender, to what are basically tortilla chips. I pulled some out of the hot oil and wrapped them around a 1-inch wooden dowel. If you time it right, you get a crispy taco shell that doesn't turn to crumbs when you take the first bite of your taco.

I love to play with my food. I didn't actually have a "meal" tonight, but I ate a bunch of food. I haven't done that in a while. I enjoyed it. I love discovering things. I probably could have learned what I learned today from a Google search, but there is something special about learning by diving into the ocean, and seeing what's under the water, to use a nautical metaphor.
