dh requested pizza with ww crust. It's a lot of work. He's also requested cookies, but I doubt it'll happen.

I had a bunch of veggies I needed to use so I sauteed them with some garlic, s&p and tossed them with leftover grilled chicken and pasta. It was very good but now I have leftovers of leftovers! That tends to be my problem.

Luvs, I hope the dumplings turned out and that you enjoyed them. Depending on the squash they can have a lot of moisture to work out. They'd make a nice side for duck!

Well, I'm doing a big-time happy dance over dinner tonight. Made a meal the likes of which I haven't had in YEARS.

Had recently bought a big frozen block of squid/calamari, & finally decided tonight to thaw it out & make a calamari pasta sauce. I was beside myself with delight, after thawing, to find that these were BABY calamari - no more than 3" long x 2" wide uncooked. I haven't had "squidlets" this size since my NY restaurant-dining days. Was thrilled.

Cooked them up in a lovely homemade sauce of extra-virgin olive oil, anchovies, garlic, onions, Italian canned tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, Italian flat parsley, Italian seasoning, & crushed red pepper flakes. Served them over spaghetti.

They were meltingly tender - just perfect. And I have enough left over for a lunch or two. Heaven.

Today, my brother and I went shopping together. Normally, we would grab take out on the way home, but I was good and cooked my dinner at home. I had BBQ chicken, sauteed squash and onions, and a tossed green salad.

The kitchen looks like a tornado blew past but dinner was good. I made a whole wheat pizza crust. I topped it with pesto that I made yesterday, toasted pine nuts, mozz, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, & shredded rotisserie chicken that I browned in a skillet first with some garlic salt and pepper.

Hash Brown Casserole, but I used tater tots instead because the grocery store was out of hash browns.


Hash Brown Casserole
1 packet (32oz.) frozen hash browns or tater tots, thawed
1/2 cup butter melted
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 (8oz.) carton sour cream
1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
2 cups crushed corn flakes

add in ideas: ground beef or shredded chicken, cooked

Combine potatoes, onion, soup, sour cream, meat and cheese and stir.

Put into casserole dish. Combine cornflakes and margarine. Sprinkle on top.

Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.
