I'm going to wait awhile before making a dinner decision due to these awful gusty winds we're having here today (45-50 mph). (Although it has been rather fun humming a few bars of "Born Free" as I watch my gang of trash cans try to make a valiant escape across the yard. . . .) It's just this kind of weather that tends to knock our power out, & I don't feel like being in the middle of cooking something & then have to stick it, half finished, into the fridge.

However, if things calm down a bit later I'll be throwing together one of the following:

Baked Ziti with Mozzarella, Parmesan, & Ricotta cheeses, with a green salad; or,

Mexican-style Meatloaf with buttered smashed potatoes & a veggie mix of green beans, wax beans, & baby fingerlength carrots; or

Fajita-style wraps, using marinated turkey strips & multi-grain tortillas, with a choice of: grated cheddar cheese, sauteed sweet onions, sauteed Anaheim chili peppers, sauteed red & orange bell peppers, shredded lettuce, sour cream, ranch dressing, & hot salsa.

So one of the above will be on the table tonight unless we lose power (in which case it will be takeout pizza or Chinese), or unless dealing with the dogs, horses, & trash cans on this blustery day causes me to not want to lift any pots & pans at all later on - lol!!!

Strict diet for me. 3-day old bread and Perrier water (without lime).
The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

Normally we go out or get take out on Friday nights, but my husband is working late, so I will cook. Since we had leftover from our roast chicken last night, I made a chicken and sausage minestrone for tonight and we'll have it with grilled garlic toast for dipping.
Finally reached my goal weight- 120 lbs- & never going back!

Just finished making a big pot of French Market soup and will have it with the last loaf of homemade baguette. Not sure what we'll have for dessert yet. Tonight's the night we speak with Buck's mother on the phone, which usually takes a couple of hours, so we may not have any dessert. Still have lots of Christmas candy left to satisfy any sweet craving either of us may have after dinner.

Cold and sunny here today but colder temps and snow's predicted for tomorrow. Looks like the kind of weekend ahead for "comfort" food.

We are going out tonight to celebrate my birthday a little early. We will be going to my favorite Chinese restaurant. We will most likely be the only Caucasians there. If you know to ask then they will give you a second menu which has a lot of interesting things on it that the main menu does not have. I cant wait to try some new things tonight.

I came on to get an idea what to make for dinner. Still not sure. I love GB's idea of having Chinese. Guess I will get out the cookbooks and see if I can come up with something. LOL
