DH is headed to a company dinner with Tito, the vodka guy. He invited me to go, but wives usually don't go. So I think I'll skip it.

I made some broccoli cheese soup with homemade chicken stock and my beloved Velveeta.

I tried out a potentially interesting recipe - a very loose variation of pesto. It consisted of cooked cavolo nero blitzed with garlic, lemon zest, anchovy fillet and a little oil. Could be promising if amended, i.e. currently the other flavours not really coming through.

Moving slowly, but movin' just the same.

We had orange bell peppers stuffed with Italian sausage, rice and aromatics. Topped with bread crumbs and shredded Parmesan. Pretty tasty. Enjoyed a couple of fresh dinner rolls with honey-butter. Filled us up just fine.

It sure is a date night. I'm watching Sprout with my granddaughter. She wants pancakes and maple syrup and I can't refuse that.

"Date Night", huh? After thoroughly cleaning 1/2 the living room ("move the furniture and dust EVERY item" thorough), doing two loads of laundry, and making a full dinner, I'll be on a double-date tonight. First with my Lane Snuggler and then with my down pillows.

I know of green beans almondine, or with mushrooms, but I've never heard of them this way. Recipe?

I prepped a casserole of mac-and-cheese while waiting for yesterday's diinner to cook, so I baked that up today along with some carrots, sauteed collard greens in bacon and its drippings, and fried up a ham steak.

At first glance, I thought you had ham steak and sausages. But, they were carrots. Looks good.

Suddenly it was dinnertime and I had nothing planned or started. Found some chicken patties in the freezer. Had more cans of nacho cheese soup than I need so mixed 2 cans soup with 1 can milk and pored it over the patties and baked. For a side u had 2 cartons of white rice left from the Chinese take-out. Added a can of black beans and a can of corn and reheated it in the microwave. All in all it came out pretty good.

On this low carb diet I've been craving Italian food big time.

Tonight I made crispy thighs chicken cacciatore in the the "convection roast" oven setting at 375 degrees for 45 min.

It was delicious....SC had a bed of perfectly cooked angel hair pasta, and mine was with a bed of wilted spinach.

Stirling made lasagna. He had already made the sauce and just had to defrost it and grate the mozzarella. I made the cottage cheese. Oh yeah, that was really tasty.
