Good looking pics and great sounding dinners, all!

I ended up making a salad and a grilled ham and cheese to go along with it. Ate dinner, went to the recliner to finish watching a movie I started yesterday, and fell asleep. Just woke up, going to try to finish that movie AGAIN.

Don't forget to set the clocks ahead tonight!

Before and after shots of tonight's dinner. Next time (and there WILL be a "next time" ) I have to be sure to make a pan of corn bread too. Would be perfect.
I so agree with that CG. I hate to waste perfectly good food and it gets my brain in gear to make a new meal.

Love the look of your meal tonight..good country soul food.

Looks good, Steve. Have you tried celeriac or rutabaga as a potato substitute?

I hear you on the leftovers. We're in Clean-Out-The-Pantry-And-Freezer mode. It's like Chopped every day, lol.

Tonight is sous vided chicken breasts seared off in the Griddler, steamed cauliflower and broccoli, tossed in a little butter with some cheese scattered on top and a salad.

I love rutabaga but, unfortunately, it's too starchy for me. I think celeriac might be a good option or, even better, turnips.

Made some really good meatballs with ground beef and sausage meat, smothered them with a kind of stroganoff/Swedish meatball gravy. Served over egg noodles.

Interesting, I would have thought that turnips and rutabuggers had about the same amount of carbs/gram.

Chinese food got cancelled. We ordered from Mr. Falafel instead. It was as good as usual.

I happened to have a lot of beef and mushrooms. So stroganoff was the answer. This week has been both my husband's and my birthdays, so I've been trying to make every meal special. This was aided by a local restaurant owners' family treating us to a very nice dinner Friday.

That was my thought, too.
