We ordered Greek food. DH got a chicken souvlaki platter with fries and I got the gyro platter with Greek potatoes. That was really good. I have lots of yummy leftovers.

CD, this is how I have always eaten Pot Pies, either commercial or homemade ... DH has adapted



We love our Rice!

I think that back in the day, steamed White Rice, which has always been inexpensive, was/is used double duty:
1) culturally eaten with each meal
and
2) to stretch a meal for a family

I just had Chinese take out a few days ago, so much as I'd like it again, I'll have to wait a little bit to do it again.

I made a veggie omelet for this evening's dinner.
Fresh fruit on the side. Hit the spot.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks it's steamed White Rice.

Some folks in Hawaii have converted to what is called
"Hapa Rice" --- half white, half brown rice --- me, I say...
GO FOR IT!!!
[Hapa in Hawaiian is half or part]
I didn't forget

I just can't get with a serving of starch served on top of a serving of starch. I got a little bloated just looking at your picture! And don't say that they are different starches either. That argument didn't fly with Himself or me when Loverly wanted to get an Arby's baked potato along with an order of curly fries. When we pointed out to her that they were both potato, her comment was "but they're fixed differently!" Thankfully, she grew out of that phase and didn't stay chubby all through her teens.


We had Aldi smoked brats (meh, they were more like hot dogs) and sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, pickled beets - and I had the last two tiny gerkins just to get the jar out of the fridge.

I had leftover Swedish Meatballs that I had made on Saturday. Doubling the batch might not have been the smartest thing because there is a LOT lefto over.

Now I'm craving Chinese …..
