It's my regular Wednesday dinner out with friends - tonight we're heading to a favorite tapas place. They always have great food - I've been thinking about the Greek meatballs and drunken mushrooms all day

I have had so much rich and spicy food lately that I need something simple and a little bland. I've opted for tuna casserole. Not that it doesn't taste good, but I don't think it has anything that will further assault my digestive tract. If ya know what I mean.

We get by with a little help from our friends

Tonight all the kids are home so it's a big pot of meatballs for subs, f.f and salad. I also am trying a hot bean dip. Blueberry cake for dessert.

THANK YOU elfie and pab, the "baked" beans were absolutely delicious!!!!!!!!

i used elfie's and poopsie's (what do you think the "p" stands for? ) recipes for baked beans as a guideline, made a little modification or 2, and tossed them in the crock pot last night. the beans were still a little firm at midnight, so i just shut it off, removed the crock, put the it in the refrigerator, and restarted it on low this morning. a coupla more hours should do it.

but the flavor was really great, reminding me of bush's maple cured bacon baked beans. my wife swore that it tasted just like the secret texas weiner sauce from the hot grill in clifon, nj - The Hot Grill , a local foodie landmark.

thanks again, ladies!!!!

getting back to the thread: the pork chops weren't defrosted yet, so we had take-out italian.
marinated portabellos/bufala mozz/roasted peppers/olives over mesculun salad, mussels fra diavolo, veal sorrentino, cavatelli with broccoli, spaghetti, and a coupla slices.

Last night I stirfried together a terrific fried rice, chock full of lots of great stuff - eggs, turkey ham, roast chicken, baby shrimp, Chinese cabbage, peas, Vidalia onions, etc., etc.

Husband had 2 big helpings, & I still have a couple of days worth of lunch leftovers as well!!
