Thursday, Oct. 16. What's on the menu?

Tonight we are having meat loaf burger sandwiches, fried potatoes and baked beans.


Don't let yesterday take up too much of today. Will

Hot sausage, peppers and onions with a side salad or scoop of cottage cheese.

Couldn't resist. The devil made me do it. Whatever.

When I was grocery shopping this week our Kroger had the most beautiful green tomatoes so...

Tonight's fare includes fried green tomatoes, steamed fresh asparagus, and salmon filet cooked in browned butter. Iced tea, then Little Debbie pumpkin cakes for dessert. Been ultra busy this week, so nothing homemade for dessert...yet! That will change tomorrow.

I don't usually buy spice mixes, I have so many different individual jars in my cupboard, I mix my own. You know, Chili seasoning, Poultry seasoning, Apple Pie spice, Pumpkin Pie spice, Rubs and the like...
A friend of mine asked me to try Greek Seasoning, but I couldn't find like a McCormick or Schillings, you know, a well known brand, so I bought Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning.
I put it on chicken thighs and grill `em up with some zucchini, sweet red bell peppers, sweet onions and some steamed white rice on the side. MMM
That's what's going on our dinner table tonight.

I used our last six eggs to make a frittata with green pepper, onion, mushrooms ham and cheeses. We had corn bread and butter with it.

We had greek wings, fresh french bread, steamed asparagus and some peapods and hummus. Light, but so good.

alix, what are greek wings? i,ve heard of a lot of kinds of wings but never greek.

i'm guessing lemon, oregano, garlic, and red wine vinegar. maybe olive oil?

We had shrimp, avocado, spinach wrapped in lavash, with heirloom tomatoes on the side.

I also found out yesterday that I now have type 2 diabetes. Several years ago, I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic, and I've been trying to eat and live healthy ever since. I was hoping to avoid it, but I guess genetics got the better of me. My mom and dad both had it, and my brother has it, too.
