Thursday's dinner? 9/18/14

We are having friends over for dinner. It has been difficult to entertain since we spend so much time at his rental house (which is not fit for entertaining) and dancing. I am fixing Paula Deans BBQ meatloaf, fresh mashed potatoes, canned mixed vegetables and Alix's lemon bars. They are bringing fresh tortillas.

What's happening at your house?

Venison burger, remains of y'day's avocado salsa, spinach salad with baby sweetcorn, sugar snap peas and a homebaked roll. Followed by cheat's raspberry "ice cream" (frozen raspberries whizzed with the stick blender into fat free yoghourt. The raspberries freeze the yoghourt - yum!). All "free food" except for the roll which was a "healthy extra".

3 whole days on Slimming World and I haven't fallen off yet

We have another United Way fundraiser coming our way: chicken Alfredo, Olive Garden salad, and lemon cookies.

Every so often, I get a craving for open-faced liverwurst sandwich. German-style pumpernickle topped with liverwurst, sliced red onion, and a baby dill. Two of those hit the spot.

Asian inspired soup with too many ingredients to list. Hot and spicy!

I'm planning on pasta carbinaroid (similar to carbonara, but not authentic) and a salad.

Change of plan. That headache that was just sort of there in the background got worse. We ordered from Mr. Falafel and it was very tasty.

PPO, that is one fine looking burger.

Last minute substitution. Replace the salad with potato chips and a cucumber sliced with vinegar, salt, dill and garlic. OK, I had a pickle.
