That looks just awesome Cheryl!

I grilled chicken marinated thighs SC had a baked spud, and we both had glorified salads.
We always eat dinner at our breakfast bar, and watch the news on our kitchen TV.
We don't have the option of fast forwarding through the commercials on that TV, and the commercials during dinner time are enough to make you lose your appetite.

Toe nail fungus, vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction, bloating and gas, urinary dysfunction, the horror of Shingles. Thank goodness for the mute button so we can eat.

Thank you, Dawg and Kay. It was all from fridge and freezer leftovers, 'need to use' perishables, and the Herdez salsa verde is always in the fridge. Thank goodness burritos are so forgiving.

I made three different entrees tonight. We ate only one! It was chicken breast simmered in white wine with fresh oregano and thyme, shallots and mushrooms. Used the pan juices to make a reduction by adding a bit more wine and a few pats of butter. Asparagus (that apparently was in a snow storm) was our veggie.

That looks good, CG. What happened to the other two?

I am still down with another chest cold and kidney infection so not eating much. Kay tried making me perogies thinking they would be comfort food, but just a little rich. I ended up just having some buttered crackers and a few minutes ago I had an apple.

Chicken and Andouille gumbo that Craig made Sunday (and has been snacking on since even though it was supposed to be a dinner first), with rice.

I made quite a good discovery!

I had some cooked cauliflower left over and knew that I was going to make spag bols. I didn't think the cauliflower would go well (in size i.e. lumpy) with this but I crumbled it up quite small - same size as the mince. It was a wonderful addition to the mince mostly providing another dimension of texture. More interesting to eat than plain spag bols. Try it!

I don't know what spag bols are, creative. Spaghetti bowls?

Oh I thought everyone knew...spaghetti bolognese. It's what waitresses write down in shorthand.

Well, LP, "Dinner Two" was for tonight (smothered chicken). I did the real cooking yesterday, and all I had to do was make veggie sides while the chicken heated and then the cheese melted.

Dinner Three will happen over and over - I made 6 quarts of spaghetti sauce. Three containers went into the freezer for us, another two for our kids when we go to OH for Christmas (fingers crossed), a quart to my SIL, and almost two quarts set aside for lasagna - which will feed us twice with more to take up the hill to my SIL's house.
