Pasta Alfredo (with a "lite" sauce) thanks to my neighbour. I am on a high fiber low fat diet which is easy because I have been on it ever since my gallbladder/ liver problems earlier this year.

At least you're in your own home eating pretty regular-type food LP. Gotta feel good!!


We had buttered noodles seasoned with Penzeys Greek Seasoning (thanks for the recommendation pac!). Himself grilled almost plain pork chops (just paprika), peaches basted with cinnamon/brown sugar butter, and zucchini. Ah yes, the zucchini. I had this bright idea to put them in the fish griller so that they could all be turned at one time. Well, when they started to get done Himself didn't have the flexibility to move the finished ones to the side... You know how a marshmallow gets when you toast it over a fire, and the outside is all black and scorched and the inside is soft and melty? They were like that. We still ate them up!

On my own and not very hungry. I had 'shrooms on toast. I will probably have some of the rabarbergrød (rhubarb pudding) from yesterday.

Yes, considering I was getting pudding, soup, milk and juice....that's it! And that was for lunch and dinner!

The pasta was still a little rich, but I ate about half what she made me, which was a lot!

We much prefer thighs but a breast sneaks in from time to time.
Hi hear ya Andy. I never buy them anymore for the same reason. Trouble is, once the die hard white meat people finally get a clue, thighs will double in price.

Around here, you can buy boneless, skinless chicken thighs and they cost as much as chicken breast. I never did much like chicken breast.

Happy belated birthday Craig. Enjoy your birthday meal.

We went to La Porte grecque - Restaurant - Apporter votre vin - Dollard-des-Ormeaux (Warning, that link starts playing Greek music when you open it. There is an on/off button.) for supper after some shopping. The food was wonderful, as usual.

We started with dolmadakia with avgolemono sauce (there were 8 to start with)



Stirling had pork souvlaki, with a Caesar salad and roast potato:



And I had the bacon wrapped scallops with salad and roast potato.
