CWS, I'm sorry for you and your tastebuds. Just remind yourself of what a wonderful daughter you are because you ARE!

S&P and medtran, lovely looking plates. medtran, your dinner tonight is a real fooler since it's so very Asian in flavor and yet looks nothing like Chinese take-out.

Like you, Cheryl, I had my foods ready for eating early in the day. We had potato salad; tuna salad with a lemon juice-olive oil dressing, celery, and stuffed green olives; and two rotisserie chicken salads - one with dried cranberries, walnuts, and cinnamon, the other with fresh bing cherries, sliced almonds, and nutmeg. Himself had his on the last of the focaccia, I split a flatbread between a tuna with spinach and the cherry-almond chicken with mixed baby greens.

Enough leftovers for tomorrow as long as I get creative with another side dish. Bought a couple ear of corn for just that purpose.

Thanks Kay and CG. I'll probably not make a puree of the carrots next time just for texture sake. It was supposed to be a sauce per the recipe but how they thought the small amount of liquid they used (and I even added water to it) to carrot ratio was going to make a sauce is beyond me, but I usually try to follow a recipe pretty closely the first time I make it. Regardless, they were excellent. Craig and I both agree this is going in our cookbook. I'm usually wishy-washy about tuna steaks and Craig (he loves tuna obviously) usually ends up with a good portion of mine and I'll fill up on whatever side(s) we have, but un-uh, not this time. Marinating it made a world of difference. Still tasted like tuna but more. He had to make do with only his own. Next time we'll have to get a bigger piece of tuna so he won't have to fill up on the sides.

CG, that chicken salad with cherries and almonds sounds really good. I'll have to keep that in mind.

Joey, beautiful looking and I bet tasting dinner plate.

CWS, you sound like me when I had to take care of my Dad while Stepmom was in hospital. He doesn't like veges, especially salads. I ended up making chef salads for lunch for me, and I'd make roasted or sauteed chicken with some kind of side for him and use the chicken in a salad of some type for me. If I was making spaghetti sauce, I'd make 2 pots of sauce, 1 for me, 1 for him (not big on spices either). I'd make meatloaf the same for both of us and mashies, but make a vege for me, which he'd usually eat a few bites of.

I tried to eat the same things as him for several weeks but it got to the point that 1 time when we were visiting her in the hospital (1-1/2 hours away from their home) that I went down to the cafeteria to get me and him some lunch, saw the salad bar and just broke. I loaded that box up with over 2 pounds of salad and fixins. Obviously, I wasn't able to eat it all at 1 sitting but I took it home and ate the rest that night for dinner. After that, I decided I'd just go to a little more work to make both of us food we liked.

I've been wanting sesame-crusted seared tuna for a while, so we finally had it last night. I had planned to make sesame noodles as a side, but I was out of peanut butter, so I made a Chinese-style sauce for spaghetti noodles with the ingredients pictured. I am added roasted bell peppers and sliced water chestnuts. Dinner was nice and light and tasty.

Mom was having a bad day today, and Dad said to me that I coddle her and am not waiting on him...last time I noticed, he had two legs and arms that worked. I do cook with Mom in mind, but I also cookwith him in mind. I don't eat pasta, but I make pasta for him. My Mom doesn't like pasta anymore, so I make something else for her when I make him pasta. This being the housekeeper is exhausting.
