I topped the patty with a couple generous tablespoons of jarred pizza sauce, and covered the whole thing with lots of grated Parm., sprinkled with hot pepper flakes, and broiled the whole thing till it was bubbling and beautiful.

I served it with sliced home grown tomatoes and steamed broccolini.
Apologies for no picture, but it was beautiful and delicious.
I was indeed delicious. The tomatoes are called Celebrity, and I only have one plant. It is 7 feet high and has about 30 tomatoes on it right now

Cat's in town? Tell her "hi" from me, will you, please? Carl, too, if he came along...


I made tasty salads that were pretty too, so look below. After those, it was leftover roast beast, mashed potatoes, and mushroom gravy from the pan drippings. Nuked up some corn that I had steamed and put by in the freezer earlier this summer when corn was dirt-cheap.

GG, I also doctor up refried beans with some salsa - I agree that it does wonders for the flavor.

Kay - great sounding dinner. With a meal like that, I wouldn't miss the bread at all.

Tonight's dinner was just a no-cook throw together - bits of various leftover cheeses with wheat crackers, a deviled egg, sliced cucumber, olives, the last wedge of the farmers market cantaloupe, and 2 pluots. Pretty tasty, and used up quite a few things that needed using up.

Looks delish, CG!

I hope he appreciated your cooking for him Kgirl. I know from experience the low carb diet works, but he was a very lucky man to have you making interesting meals for him.
