I had a nightmare from he!! day starting with a blow out tire on the Freeway, and it went downhill from there. Groan. Such is life I guess.

I only got back to the house close to dinner time, and darling husband greeted me with a bottle of fine wine, and authentic Swiss Fondue prepared by him with candles for supper.
There's nothing in the world more wonderful than a soft place to fall.

We had meatloaf, the first I've ever made. It came out really good and will be a good base to experiment from. We had mashed potatoes with sour cream and chives, and steamed brocoli for sides.

Oh my Pag.... I can't believe you only just made your first meatloaf! Good for you and yes there are a Plethora of meatloaf recipes. Have fun creating!

I needed to use some leftover roasted chicken, so I made a friends recipe for what she calls "Chicken Divan". It uses the dreaded "canned soup", but it's easy and fairly quick on a week/work night. It's basically a baked curried chicken dish. DH professes not to like curry, but he ate three(yes count em 3) helpings! ;)

@Kayelle - that man is a keeper. He knew JUST how to make your day better.

@radhuni - school already? She can't be more than 3 years old can she? You must start school pretty early there.

I had errands to run & brought in my Taxes to be done. Long day. Had Chinese take out - Eggplant with garlic sauce steamed rice & Spring Rolls. Very bland & boring. Next time I'll make it myself.

That's always a bummer. I try to keep things like Maggi seasoning, oyster sauce and Szechuan pickled green beans on hand to spice up take-out. Our favorite Chinese place also offers a choice of pork fried rice or steamed rice; I always get the PFR since it has a lot of flavor.

Your dish really look delicious, what dish is this? The meat and the 'sheek kabab' like things?
