Looks good, Pac!

Tonight we went across the street to the local Legion branch to support their Friday wing night. Turns out they were out of wings, so I ended up eating fish and too many fries. They had pogos for sale also, I bought a couple and none of us ate them. Nasty things, they are.

My friend was playing with his jazz band so we sat and watched them for a while. I drank too much beer, as usual. Off to bed for this guy...Work in the morning, catering job for a hockey tournament and then a gig tomorrow night.....zzzzzzzz

I used whole grain pita. We used pasata as the sauce and added fresh oregano, basil, thyme, and rosemary (someone here posted that those are the herbs for pasta sauce). We topped the sauce with crushed chilis, some ham sausage, some pieux (Genoa style salami), and shredded Gruyere. It turned out very tasty.

Stirling has tried making flat bread pizza before and was very disappointed. He liked this one, but would prefer pepperoni.

The thermostat on the oven was misbehaving. We set the temperature to 400F and it never thought it was hotter than 275F. Well, the stove is 25 years old. It's probably time to replace it.

The Legion is always, well, different.

I've never tried a Pogo. They looked nasty. I'm kinda pleased to hear someone agree. I think the Merkans would call it a corn dog, but I'm not sure.

That does look tasty, Pac!

We had roast pork loin with homemade barbecue sauce, baked beans, and a pasta & cheese side dish.

We had a breakfast dinner! This may sound odd, but we had bacon, toast, scrambled eggs, sausage balls, brown sugar and cinnamon oatmeal, and a few doughnuts.

Buuurrrrrrrpp.

Good night!

With love,
~Cat

Breakfast dinners are great!

We had salmon again, but it is good for my diet and really tasty. I just squeezed lemon juice over, then sprinkled dill, salt and fresh ground pepper. I topped it with lemon slices and baked it. No fat or oil and it was delicious. We had some rice and Greek salad - no dressing for me!

LP, have you tried using balsamic vinegar with a few herbs as a dressing?

Made pastrami and roast beef paninis. Himself heated up way too many tater tots...and then ate most of them, And he wonders why we rarely have them in the house. *sigh* Our "veggies" were dill pickles and cherry tomatoes. Sometimes you just have to throw nutrition to the wind.
