A reduced carb version of General Tso's chicken, the poor General is probably spinning in his grave!

Mine didn't look anything like this but the presentation makes me laugh!!!

My mom's 2000 miles away and has already had her Mother's Day meal at Outback. I gave her a call though and she got my card, so that's good.

So I guess I'm cooking for me and tonight I'm making Beef and Guiness stew and fondant potatoes.

Restaurant Ikibana Born ..

Born, Barcelona, is a Soho, London or Greenwich Village type neighborhood and loads of fun to explore ... It is Japanese Brazilian cuisine !

Nipo Brasileńa ..

Last time I was in Spain, I stayed at La Meridien Hotel in that general part of Barcelona, and wandered all over the neighborhood. It is a cool neighborhood, and I found some good food. Of course, I was focused on Spanish/Catalan food.

What I would give to be able to cook for my Mom again on Mother's Day!

My sons and their families took us out for brunch yesterday to celebrate...much better idea, and it was lovely without any stress just one day removed.

Tonight I did Chef John's rusty thighs on the grill..delish, and the side was my own version of Ratatouille that was to die for.

With visitors from FL and MA, we had a full house for brunch and dinner.

Brunch was mimosas, french toast, sausage bread, three kinds of muffins and fruit.

For dinner we had a bacon cheeseburger meatloaf, chicken dinner pie, baked potatoes and salad for dinner. Dinner was my New York style cheesecake with blueberry topping.

Ms.M, it was basically this recipe, although I added some TJ's roasted corn and some chopped wilted spinach... Personally, I could have just made a meal of the dish it was so good and complex.
