Thursday Lunch: Caprese Pizza for a Main


Had a lovely Caprese Pizza for lunch and after, a fennel with arugula salad with a lovely vinaigrette with a slight drizzle of lemon ...

Have a nice day.

I noticed cabbage was on sale for 49 cents a pound, and I have ground beef. Either stuffed cabbage w/ cranberry sauce & boiled potatoes, or beirocks & borscht.

I've got brats, beer, onions and even brat buns from the bakery. Guess what's for dinner.

I sliced up two onions and am slow cooking them, covered in a skillet, in about a beer and a half. The bakery buns are about the length of a brat or hot dog, but more like a hoagie roll consistency. Mmmmmm!

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

We're having tacos. I have some ground beef so gave the yungun a choice between tacos and spaghetti.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Leftover night. Grilled chicken for the kids, meatloaf for the parents. Baked potatoes for all!

I was hoping to avoid a trip into town for any groceries until tomorrow, so worked with what I had - which wasn't much...

Had two chicken legs (backs attached) that needed to be used. Hacked them up, tossed them into the crock pot with two lonely hot Italian sausages that were lingering in the freezer (thawed and removed from casings) and some veggies. Slopped together a can of mushroom soup with a few scoops of honey habanero mustard and about half a can of beer. Poured that over the meat/veggie mix in the crock pot, gave it a quick toss to coat, cranked 'er up to high and walked away.

Can't honestly say how this will turn out, but my fingers are crossed that's it's good

Tacos sound good!

Hey, in another dinner thread, people wanted to know what hamburger stuffing was. ???

I'm making hamburgers with fries
A little kindness goes a long way.

It was Amazing! All of it, but no dessert & no bread. The light & lemony pea salad was a great accompaniment. It really cut the heavy flavor of the rest of the meal.

Thanks to everyone who gave me some great advice yesterday. Even hubby said it was very good. (That's second to the highest compliment from him). He cleaned his whole plate which he is very finicky & usually does not clean his plate unless he really really likes something.

We went out for Ethiopian.

The floor show was amusing.. 3 women that must have had it recommended to them but they were lost and seemed scared to look foolish in front of each other. I had to chuckle when one calls someone to find out what to order and she said "I don't want to know which meat to get, just tell me which number to order".
"First you start with a pound of bologna..."

Made DH Thai scallops with rice and stir fried veggies to take to work.

I am still fighting this sinus infection, plus swallowing and breathing problems and am back on prednisone AGAIN (just weaned off it) which takes my appetite away and makes foods taste different than they should...among other symptoms. So, I am finding it hard to find something to eat. Think I will run to the store and get some deli scalloped potatoes - one of the few things that seems to go down okay.

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!
