Busy day, lousy weather, and not feeling so well. Dinner was a couple of DiGiorno rising crust pizzas on this meatless Friday.

Since I screwed up on Ash Wed and made chicken, I made up for it today.

We had old school creamed tuna with onions, celery, mushrooms and peas on top of open faced buttered & toasted chabatta rolls. Yes, I made the white sauce but only because I was out of Cream of Mushroom soup. Gasp!

I made some Bisquick shortcakes and we'll have strawberry shortcake for desert later. Was glad to see the first of them in the store today.
Gotta have real whipped cream too.

Well, in spite of some burnt onion, that didn't go in the soup, it came out great. The Gouda melted beautifully and was nice and stringy. Using "hard toast" slices of baguette worked really well too.

I guess it was because there weren't enough onions, but I was still hungry after a bowl, so I made a salad of lettuce, tomatoes, and red onion with just some salt and pepper, EVOO, and balsamic vinegar instead of a real dressing. Oh, and I sprinkled some unsalted, roasted sunflower seeds on it. It was pretty good and now I'm full. DH got tired of waiting and went to bed. I have almost a litre of soup left for tomorrow.
