What's for Dinner? Saturday, Feb 21st, 2015

Hmm.... no dinner thread yet?

I had some fun in the kitchen today. The first challenge was to make diet friendly burger buns. I found a recipe online that called for almond meal, coconut flour, and flaxseed meal. I was skeptical, but you would never know they weren't made from wheat. The texture and flavor is great, and they have 1/6 the carbs of a regular whole wheat bun.

The second challenge is to make a dessert for my wine club's board meeting tomorrow. I'm thinking cheesecake. We'll see how that goes.

Sorry, the photo came out just a tad blurry.

That certainly looks like a good bun, and burger.

Somehow I thought all day it was Sunday not Saturday. I guess I just gained a free day tomorrow and can stay up as late as I want tonight.

I baked 2 bone in chix breast halves, one with bbq sauce for dinner, one plain and crispy skinned to do something with later. I also made stir fried Asian cabbage and rice to go with.

Looks good, Steve! Glad you found a tasty alternative to wheat bread.

I spent much of the day rearranging the guest room. Since it's almost 6PM now, I think I'm just going to have a grilled ham and cheese this evening and call it good.

Great looking burger and bun, Steve.

SO and I had pasta with tomato sauce.

Nice bun(s), Steve!

Himself's sleep pattern is so out of whack right now (he's blaming a change in meds) that I was ready for late lunch/early supper after he had his breakfast. Plan B was put in motion: leftovers. With a little lucky, the only thing left will be the chicken breasts that I need for what has now become tomorrow's chicken pot pie.

My my! That looks so good, Steve.

Nothing exciting tonight here. We had a German dinner we love. It's German garlic soup, oven-roasted pork ribs rubbed with herbs and spices (not BBQ), German dark wheat bread with honey butter and a salad with tomatoes, radishes, Romaine lettuce, cucumber, diced celery, real bacon pieces, red onion, diced apple, walnuts with a raspberry viniagrette dressing.

It sounds very weird but it was good. We like a lot of different flavors and strange combinations when we have the time, LOL!

Karen made her chili version and I made mine. Normally I make mine beanless, served over pasta with cheddar and sour cream. This time, to keep it more diet friendly, I made it with beans and skipped the cheese and sour cream.

I also added some ground pequins in addition to my usual chili combination. I was going to grind a ghost pepper and add it, but chickened out.

It's funny how two diets can be so polar opposite, but still be effective. On my diet, I would skip the beans and pile on more cheese and sour cream.
