Enjoy the fireworks Harry!

And now, perhaps back to the dishes of the day....

I've got a crock pot of chili cooking. Gonna have cornbread with it. If I get ambitious maybe some grilled cheese sandwiches.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Porridge - all day!

I signed up with a new doctor last week. I'd moved some time ago but against the rules stayed with old Dr as rarely need to visit. Ran out of tablets for my GRD on Sunday. New practice won't issue prescription until I've been signed up with them for a fortnight. Suggested that I go back to my doctor where I used to live and get prescription from him. All very well but my old doctor has retired and practice is closed.

Got substitute over-the-counter tablets yesterday but by that time the damage had been done and heartburn and reflux had set in with a vengeance. Now I can only eat porridge. Oatmeal is very soothing for the digestion.

So GRD isn't life-threatening but I wonder what would happen if it was heart medicine or some other urgent drug that was required.

Grumble, grumble, moan, complain!

Good lookin' dinner as always, Harry. And thank you for all you do for your local kitchen/cafe. It's inspiring, and I'm sure it's very much appreciated. I've been stockpiling shelf stable things for a while now, getting it ready for the Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets. Everything helps.

As for tonight's dinner, not sure yet what that will be. And I know I don't feel like cooking. Might stop by Miso Sushi for some California rolls to bring home.

(SO's Low Carb day #2) I'll be grilling some chicken thighs on the grill and making a Caesar salad.

Shepherds' pie would certainly hit the spot.

I had to Google the baby squid, Harry. I like the variety of seafood in your dish. Great textures. Nice looking dinner.

I'm going to have spaghetti with a tomato sauce.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Waddle waddle waddle. I walked the 10 blocks or so to vote in local elections today. Treated myself to a neighborhood Mexican buffet for a late lunch. I didn't really put that much on my plate, although by the time I added a dollop of diff sauces et al the plate looked full. They make Baked chix wings in chili sauce and unspecified fruit juice glaze. Never tried them on their appy menu. Tasty, not spicy, Sticky. I had to go wash my fingers after eating two of those. I should have checked to see one was a Leftie and a Rightie and stopped right there. I also had a small enchilada w/ mole' sauce, some spicy shredded chix and Really spicy ground beef in two soft shell corn tortillas, piled w/ taco makings and a spoonful of seasoned pintos. Several small pieces of melon and pina for dessert. Total charge just under $10 before drinks, tax and drinks. No dinner for me tonight.

Tonight I made stuffed pork chops. I mix in some dried cranberries or "Craisins" as the are called, into the stuffing before it goes into the chops. SO had mashed potatoes and I had a salad with the chops.

Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."
