DH is off so dinner is normal time. It is pouring again so no more cold plates. Thinking roast beef and trimmings.

We're having a "find-your-own-smorgsbord" of leftover holiday favorites, lol. If they can't find something in there to eat, well then, they're just not hungry!!

We took my daughter for lunch today at Michael's mostly Italian restaurant, and we all had the smorgasboard, which is fun once in a while. Their meatballs melt in your mouth. Kim thought the pasta sauce a little sweet, but I like it that way.
I had a nice green salad, a little Italian pasta salad just like I make, and a slice of pizza on the first round. They keep bring out different pizzas, some thin crust and some regular.
Then I had a little penne casserole, spaghetti, meatballs, red spaghetti sauce and garlic bread.
All for $5. Of course his made to order meals, are higher, but still reasonable. I think the seafood ravioli plus soup and salad from the smorgasboard is $11.50.

You have to know where to look for this place...it's on a backstreet in a community even smaller than ours.

Obviously, we're only having a small snack tonight.
We get by with a little help from our friends

When I served our dinner tonight, I told my husband it was in honor of The White Album...any Beatle's fans out there? It was a truly ugly dinner. I made baked salmon because I didn't want to stand over a hot skillet searing salmon tonight - used the small convection oven instead. Smeared the top of the salmon with a mixture of mayo, sour cream, garlic salt, and dill. Put crushed potato chips oon the top. Baked for about 15 minutes at 350F. I'm out of potatoes, didn't feel like rice, so I cooked macaroni, added some green onions sauteed in butter, some cottage cheese and lots of freshly ground salt and pepper. Added some fresh pineapple and bananas from our tree in a fruit cup on the side. Looked really yucky, but DH gobbled it up. The three cats and the dog (who are embarrasing beggars at the table) also loved the salmon....I can't recommend it for looks and also nutritional value, but it tasted pretty good.
Saludos, Karen

I thawed the last container of Sunday Gravy. Served with salad and homemade bread.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I had some pork cubed steaks. Made something vaguely chop-chae like, except that I substituted a lot of ingredients. So it wound up being pork, green onions, mixed baby greens from the garden (spinach, mustard and chard), pea pods, all stir fried with rice noodles.
