Cleaning out the freezer above the fridge...lasagna and chicken egg rolls in my lunch bag. I still have apples and smoked gouda in the fridge at work.

Going to have fish with rice and salads. Chocolate cake for dessert.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I'm going to have meatloaf, baked potato with sour cream, and probably corn on the cob. Oh yum--is it time for supper yet?!

It's very warm in L.A. today so dinner will be cooked and served outdoors again. I'll do it in the wood oven.
New York steaks, 2 kinds of focaccias, and some roasted vegis will be served at George's patio. Cheap wine from TJ's. Game 2 at 5pm.

Good afternoon everyone,

Tonight's dinner will be a chicken and peanut stir-fry served over rice that I saw on an episode of Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn ... love that show ... has anyone see it yet. Her recipes are very approachable and family pleasing.

I made an apple cake earlier today ... so that will be dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Enjoy the day

No clue what's for dinner at our pad yet... I have a pound of ground beef to use... but that really doesn't narrow it down much does it!
We only had Turkey twice a year when I was growing up. Thanksgiving and Christmas period! Now that I am a big girl I have turkey when ever I damm well please.
I have Turkey that I could have tonight (too hot to turn on oven). I bought Turkey breast "chops". I could mix dry rice, dried onions, sage, celery flakes with boiling fat free low sodium chicken broth and toss the turkey on top, cover with lid and bake for 30-35 minutes. Or I could have sausage and buckwheat cakes, or eggs and sausage. I am not sure yet.

Hi SnickerDoodle (I just love your name).

Try the jar gravy. They are pretty good, especially if you use them as a base and add things like sliced fried mushrooms.

As a hint for making gravy, google white sauce for the method to make any sauce or gravy. Once you master that, you can make perfect gravy every time. I learned in HomeEc in high school and that is the basics for all gravies and sauces.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
