We had Costco samples, and DH had to get the turkey provolone sandwich on our way out.

Well I ate uncharacteristically lightly since I went out to a carvery for lunch (excellent roast dinner).

I bought a slice of bakewell tart that I spread some of my baked apple puree on (just halving cooking apples and baking them on a high heat till they go to mush) with a cup of tea (how British!). Banana and milk later.

Are they Kluski (aka Kluska) dumplings? Or possibly Lithuanian Cepelinai?

EDIT: Never mind.... Aunt Bea got it.

We had baked chicken breasts with thyme and cranberry glaze, extra (canned) cranberry sauce on the side, mashed taters, and garlicky Brussels sprouts.

msmofet, that looks so good!

Steve, that could pass for the fish in traditional fish and chip dinners.

Katy, I was going to guess something like Gefilte fish! I guess I get the prize for the most epically failed guess!

Dinner tonight was salad, but nibbled all day on raw cauliflower and dip, anti-pasta types of things, etc.
A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.

Ohhhhhhhh Katy I think I know what you're talking about with those dumplings...revolting in your words and mine too. As a child, I was served one by a German relative with flourishing pomp and it was like trying to chew nasty chewing gum that continued to grow in my mouth. Patooie!!
I spit it into my napkin and she was highly offended.


Our dinner tonight was grilled rib eye steaks with baked potatoes and steamed broccolini.

Finally turned the chicken stock I made a couple days ago into a real garbage veggie soup. Carrots, celery, green beans, tomato, zucchini, shredded chicken breast, ditalini, and...kale. Himself said it was good in spite of the kale. I made a big pot so that we have something for later in the week when we get home from Pittsburgh.
