DH just left for work so we had our bigger meal for lunch....and had breakfast Nothing like mixing up the mains! I made waffles with sausages, fresh berries, whipped cream and maple syrup. It went over very well but then again it always does no matter what time of day I serve it!

I still have some ham left from Sunday's dinner so I am thinking of making Dad and I a favourite lunch from my childhood - creamed ham on toast. Simple, but good as neither of us are totally feeling over our colds and flu and love comfort food.

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

Classic bbq style recipe. I like it. They do add lots of mustard. I'd be tempted to put a bit of ground cloves in there, also.

I'm doing my hamburger stuffing recipe. Have some sausage left from the pizza Sunday so will dump that in too. Maybe have some green beans with it but my sinuses are acting up and DH is teaching so it may just be the casserole and some applesauce.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I have been working on using up the meat that is in the freezer before stocking up again, and we are down to the last of the chicken thighs. I gave James a choice of cooked in BBQ sauce or oven-fried, and he chose oven-fried chicken. Our vegetable will be mashed pumpkin with a pat of butter, and baked potatoes with butter.

I think the only meat left in the freezer now is a few pounds of bacon, a turkey, and possibly a ham bone. I might make the turkey this weekend, and the bacon I am just using as I get in the mood for it. Grocery shopping tomorrow! I've been putting it off too long, and James will be going back to school Thursday and will have the car.

I'm roasting a chicken and we'll have a tossed salad with it. I was also going to make pilaf but I have been feeling sick all day and we'll have to make do with some ciabatta and buttah. Ha, it kinda rhymes!
