i just finished food shopping, so dinner tonigjt will start with pickles and smoked whiting for an after school appy, then a salad of 50/50 spinach and baby greens. for the entree, either a pork loin roast, or grilled bone-in ny strip steaks.

i just got my cholesterol numbers back (187 total, yay!), but my triglycerides were a little high, so it's time to cut out spuds, bread, and sugary snacks.

i guess i'm giving up chocolate for lent again.

I have 2 ribeyes in the fridge that I will broil for the yungun and me. I'm thinking broccoli with cheese sauce will make a nice side. Will forgo the starch this meal since we tend to have too much of that anyway.

I am throwing some boneless/skinless chicken breasts, marinated in balsamic vinaigrette, in the oven and will serve it with sour cream and chive mashed potatoes and spinach.

Rock and Alix, what's a pickerel? I'm guessing since it was "caught", it's a critter of some kind?

I'm alone for a few days as Steve needed to take an emergency red eye flight to Florida last night. Florida can be very difficult to get to from here on such short notice. His sweet 99 year old mom took a fall, so I hope you'll all keep good thoughts for them.

I'll heat up some soup or something.

Steak for me tonight, ribeye. I don't eat steak very often but every now and then I crave meat. Caesar salad and mashed potatoes with that.

The weather is warm enough here, so we're BBQing some balsamic marinated steak. I'm serving it with grilled asparagus and garlic bread.

Kayelle, pickerel is like pike or walleye. Not EXACTLY the same, but the same family of fishies. Pickerel is delicious!

Dinner tonight ended up being tortellini and ham in a creamy cheesy sauce.

Oh my. All the best for your MIL and Steve, Kayelle.

Soup here too.
