Lunch was leftover pizza from what we made last night. I swear it's almost better the 2nd day.

For dinner I cooked a couple hot Italian sausage links with mushrooms and then added eggs so it's kind of a scramble and served it over polenta. The extra polenta I cooled and then cut into squares to use for something else later in the week.

I also roasted up a couple cans of garbanzo beans and seasoned them with a splash of sesame oil, soy sauce and mesquite seasoning that we've been munching on all day. I set some of them aside to use on our salads tomorrow.

I've my stuff all measured out and my crock pot ready to flip on before I go to bed so I'll have my steel-cut oatmeal for the week.

I also have cabbage chopped and smoked chicken shredded for my stir-fry tomorrow. I'll start the rice cooker and dinner will be ready in less time that it takes for the rice to finish!

I love when I'm organized. I just wish I were more consistent about it...

We went to my SIL house today. There are 4 people with birthdays in Feb so we get together and celebrate all 4 at the same time. We had 4 birthday cakes (so each birthday person got their favorite). We followed the cake with grilled hamburgers, potato salad, cooked apples (with red hots) and pretzels and chips. Of course I ate too much! Had to try all the cake! Talk about sugar coma!!

My wife got 80lbs of chicken quarters so I had a very busy day. I started by making some stock with one 10lb bag. This is to make stock for soup and I use the meat to feed the geriatric dog I have.

Then I began to debone 50lbs. After that was deboned I ground almost all of it. The pieces I didn't grind I cooked for things like chicken noodle. I used 6lbs of ground chicken to make delicious chicken patties for sandwiches. I am going to finish cooking the rest of the ground meat tomorrow. I am finishing the night by making more stock with the bones from the deboning done earlier.

PF and I each completed our take on DC's very own Mushroom challenge (and posted with pictures.)

I made a spinach-mushroom "martini" for my first course. The Second course was wild mushrooms, goat cheese and herb filling for filo. The third was scallops in a porcini-scampi sauce with roasted veggies and the last, and my favorite, was candy top mushroom ice cream.

We had homemade beef-a-roni with penne pasta. We both loved it.

Barbara, are you guys using the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest pasta? I swear, you can't tell the difference and it has made a huge difference in SHrek's morning blood sugars when he has it for dinner.
