Ya beat me to it. I started a supper thread, but decided to check again if there was one, and, while I was posting, one appeared.

I made a salad of romaine lettuce, napa cabbage, carrot, celery, and onion. I served it with hard boiled eggs (eggs courtesy of CWS), purslane from my garden, anchovies, green and Kalamata olives, Feta cheese, capers, and ranch dressing (mayo, yogourt, minced garlic mushed with salt, minced onion, parsley from the garden, a splash of white wine vinegar, a splash of olive oil). It was even better than I expected. I'll post pix soon.

Since our eggplant plants are overachievers, I made bubatora's eggplant rolls, except instead of the sauce called for in the recipe, I used my own homemade oven-roasted (and home-canned) tomato sauce. The dish was wonderful. Thank you bubatora.

Along with the entree, we had steamed and buttered cubes of zucchini and yellow squash, toasted homemade baguette, iced tea and, for dessert, homemade oatmeal cookies. We're stuffed.

All of your dinners sound delish!

I'm doing some beautiful stuffed red bell peppers and baked potatoes. I need my head examined for heating up the oven.

I didn't eat yesterday, so I decided it would be a good idea to eat today. Spike brought me my baguette and Swiss cheese for the topping to my onion soup. Will eat around nineish. I am not hungry right now either. I am getting a little concerned. Lately it is almost everyday I don't feel like eating. I don't know if it is the cold or is that dang bugaboo of not eating for days coming back. I am not anorexic, I just have no appetite or desire to eat. This happens every so often. The last time, I went five days without eating. So I am going to make myself eat tonight whether I want to or not. I will make just a short bowl.

He gave me a big container of his onion soup. Five pounds of onions in it. It is so good when I have the appetite for it.

We had very tasty burgers tonight. I made mine with smoked gruyere, mayo, tomato, genoa salami and onion.

Had some of my homemade burger/kaiser buns in the freezer so I made grilled chicken sandwiches, toasted the buns on the grill. Served that with a spinach salad.

Just had some fresh pineapple. How the heck does Aldi sell fresh pineapple for $1.19? They have been this price for a while and it was so sweet and tasty.

Turns out it was worth heating up the kitchen. The best peppers I've ever done.

Threw pork chops on the grill, served with green beans, Swiss Chard, and potatoes from the garden. Still have to deal with the peas and more beans before more need to be picked...bring on the start of harvest season.
