I am trying to introduce new, healthy foods to my Dad, who is a meat and potatoes guy. He won't order chicken out, but learned with my mother to eat what was put in front of him. LOL Awhile ago I got him onto chicken cacciatore and was going to try my parmesan chicken fingers with Kades Unfries. However, I didn't want to go too far out for him so I left the breasts whole and decided to do fries instead because he loves the homemade ones. But I did the trick of parboiling the fries first, draining and cooling them, then putting them in the oil. This way they cook faster and don't absorb as much grease.

The meal was a hit with everyone! Now I have two kinds of chicken he will eat which makes DH very happy as he misses his poultry! Hmm, I wonder how I will do introducing vegetarian food to Dad? Nah, won't go there.

IT was a good thing I made a huge batch so that I could freeze the leftovers. A football game was canceled due to storms and I ended up with 7 wet, very hungry teenagers.

A big batch of spaghetti sounds good on a rainy evening. I bet they sure enjoyed it!

Wednesday night I made my "Breezy Braised Eggplant Szechaun Style", using both black & violet-striped baby eggplants from the farmers' market & adding several handfuls of crisp snowpeas to the original recipe. Served over Jasmine rice. Delicious, spicy, plus had enough leftovers for 2 days of lunch.

Here was our last pizza at Pizza Hut. It was a
hand-tossed with double cheese overall and half sausage/half mushroom.



The next one was from a place in Vancouver, BC, CA. We both had our own pizza with a pitcher of beer. Great combo! I can't remember the name of the restaurant.


I think it was The Brewhouse. Sorry the picture is not good. It was taken the first part of 2006.
