What I made Saturday - beef and cheese manicotti, and I'll be making a fresh green salad tonight. I didn't know how much it was going to yield, as I was rolling flat pasta, so I made a 500 g batch (1.1 lbs). It was enough for three 8 x 8 baking dishes, 10 rolls in each. I had just a small bit of filling left over. We had one dish Saturday, I gave a dish to our daughter and SIL on Sunday, and we're having the last of it tonight. It really came out well with the fresh pasta, which I used straight from the machine.

Salmon. My meds got back ordered. I am dizzy, nauseous, sweating and hoping my Dad doesn't forget to pick them up on his way home from curling. Gotta love time released meds when are back ordered.

Tonight is the go-to meal around here, baked chicken breasts and Brussels sprouts. We eat it at least once a week, if not two or three times. Easy to make and filling.

I decided to try something different tonight, and cooked up a couple of chicken breasts sous vide (using J. Kenji López-Alt's recipe). I finished them off by frying in duck fat to crisp up the skin. The side is cheesy broccoflower rice.

That looks great. At first I thought it was glazed salmon.

We have leftovers to clear out - meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, posole. I'll make salads and we'll pick and choose.

I'm still trying to lose the 8 pounds I gained on the road, eating at restaurants. So, I'm grazing on fresh fruits and veggies tonight. I think a lot of it is water weight around the belly due to the excessive amount of sodium in restaurant food, so the fresh fruits and veggies should help leach that out of my body.

That looks and sounds really, really good.
