How do you get the chihuahua milk to make the cheese from?

Just eggs? No sides?

For those interested in polar bears:

International Polar Bear Day - February 27th! - Polar Bears International
I thought polar bear day was when you got drunk and jumped into freezing cold water. There was no way I was doing that -- besides, it is 70 degrees here.

I support the idea, but lowering my thermostat won't do anything, since my heat and AC are turned off -- like I said, it is 70 degrees here.

However, I do drive a MINI CooperS, so I have a whole lot of fun while maintaining a small carbon footprint.

Lunch today was leftover past salad. Dinner is looking like popcorn. I rented Deepwater Horizon on iTunes, and I'm thinking tonight would be a good movie night.

Cooking Goddess mentioned the Cuban Piccadillo a couple days ago, so thought I'd make that tonight as it's been a while. Did you actually make it CG?
Dang, that's tasty easy eats!

After the great advice I got on my pasta how much topic, I cooked 1.9 oz of pasta, heated 4-5 oz of cooked shrimp in bottled Alfredo sauce, accessorized with garlic bread, and since I had some Thai basil on hand I started munching a partial leaf with bites of pasta/shrimp and eventually chopped and tossed in some Thai basil. I ate all the shrimp, had some sauce and pasta left over, scraped it into the garbage, came away with a good meal knowing it was a healthy serving size particularly considering I'm trying to eat a reasonable diet (not over-eating so I can seek a bit of weight reduction). Dinner was good and guilt free!

A few comments on Thai basil: it is not at all equivalent to your usual or sweet basil, although distinctly the same family. I had some in my fridge from a recent Thai curry foray, decided to test it. Thai basil--AKA "holy" basil--is relatively stronger in taste, is distinctive from its purple stems and sometimes purple veins in leaves, and has a licorice-like tone to the taste. Ordinary basil would have been better but I used what I had. I think it improved the dish but sweet basil would have been better.

Now I'm motivated to have curried shrimp tomorrow night! Or some other Thai dish suited to Thai basil.

Sheesh I wish my local markets carried gailan. Nothing better than a plate of gailan, put a scoop of your Jasmine rice on top, then curry with chopped Thai basil over that! Gailan is also called Chinese broccoli. It is mostly leaves and very few florets unlike ordinary broccoli. Think "spinach."

Nice plating progression, dragn! BTW, is that a Warren Kimble plate?

It's what was for supper at our house, too, Kayelle! Made a full recipe tonight, figuring I could freeze half. I guess it's been a while since we've had it - Himself made sure there wasn't enough to freeze. Oh, well, so much for stashing another meal...

Wowzers! Great pics all, and wonderful sounding dinners this evening. Getting inspired again.

Dragn....I have to say, I drooled through your dinner pics. Looks fabulous!

Huevos rancheros for dinner here this evening. Sliced avocado on the side, that didn't make it into the pic. I could have this once a week or more and be a happy camper.
