This is a recipe that I want to try. But you would need to sub something for the potatoes. But since it is baked that should be easy.

¿Gusta Usted? : Pollo adobado al horno. Muy fácil y sabroso. Receta

I was busy for the majority of the day cleaning the house in preparation for decking the halls with our Christmas decore.
So, I pulled from the deep freeze, a package of cooked Kalua Pork, added some cabbage and sweet onion, that is steamed in the pan with a bit of water; all served atop steamed white rice.
DH's co-worker asked him what he had for dinner when finished his dinner break and he replied, "my wife made Hawaiian food". His friend didn't believe him ...

Steve, "meat-za" sounds like a killer idea! Seriously, that keto diet might be good for the blood sugar, but what can it do to your cholesterol levels?


Still feeling beat up, so I made scrambled eggs with mushrooms and toast, mostly for me. Himself finished up the bratwurst, sauerkraut, and roasted beets earlier, so he had just a taste of the eggs and a slice of toast.

I had a scattered dinner. I had already made gazpacho with avocado, so I had a bowl while I was making the yellow squash with onions in garlic butter. When that was done, I had a small serving. Later on I just had to have another bowl of gazpacho.

I guess I had a vegetable dinner. Egad, no meat...

I think that's probably the first time ever!

Great looking dinners!
I had huevos rancheros tonight, with a side of sliced avocado.

The master gardeners had Martha Stewart Night last night. We all brought cut greens from our yards and made wreaths and swags to sell at the farmers market tomorrow. We also brought snacks, so I just nibbled. I left some of the hummus, pita chips and crudités I made for DH.

Tonight? I dunno, it's too soon to tell.

My plan is to make taco meat today, but the ultimate plan is to make it into Chili (chili dogs) which is a couple of days project.

I want to roast my baby acorn squash, but I might not get around to it. I also want to make a cheese sauce for broccoli.

Like I said, I dunno yet.

This is last night's dinner thread. You have time to decide
