Stirfry using up some of the leftover beef roast from Sunday (shaved) and a whole lot of veggies (crisper clean out) (cauliflower leaves, cauliflower, broc. stocks, asparagus stocks (frozen), peas, carrots, celery, onion, radish, green pepper, mushrooms, lemon grass, and celery). Served over rice with lemon zest. The usual suspects re: seasonings--grated ginger, garlic, onion, Chinese 5-spice, Tamari, lemon zest at the end.

I had a bunch of veggies that needed to be used, so I made sautéed veggies with Penzeys Pico and Salsa Seasoning instead of salad. Also baked some bread and served slices alongside.

Mmmm....so many wonderful looking and sounding dinners this evening!

I threw together a burrito for this afternoon's dinner - mashed black beans, rice, onions, fire roasted chiles, salsa...wrapped up in a warmed flour tortilla and topped with Herdez salsa verde. Easy and used up some leftovers, but still very good.

I had the leftover beef with a great big bowl of green beans butter/s/p. I made 4 frozen dinners for the guys of the leftover beef (it is so good) with a side of corn/carrots/butter/s/p.
Dessert, powerballs of dark dark chocolate coated, sunflower seed meal/whey protein/erythritol/cream, formed into balls.

I heated up leftover sausage and peppers (and onions) from yesterday, and put it on a sub roll for a tasty Italian sausage sammich -- with a side of beer.

Everything sounds yummy!

Since I don't eat pasta or rice very often, I made a chef's salad with the fresh ingredients available.

For those who don't know--I just don't like pasta. 3-4 x a year is enough for me. I could hold the baby until help arrives. Just don't put me on the pasta stand.

Sauteed the onion in the stock pot I soaked the beans in, tossed them in when the onions were clear, added a meaty ham bone, and let it simmer a few hours. When the beans were soft, I pulled the ham out and trimmed it off the bone and gristle, tossed it back into the pot, and served it up. Not too fancy, not much work. But, boy, it WAS good.

Thanks CG! It looks and sounds wonderful, for me, I'ma thinkin' DH would turn his nose up at it, so this is why when we go out to eat, I ALWAYS order something that I CAN'T make at home
