We're having spaghetti and regular meatballs...spicy is not settling that well yet. I started back on my Nexium today, though, so that should change quickly.

Beth, those sweet potatoes sound so good! If you have those and kale both, you'll be putting away some great vitamins!

Patti, chicken broth will work just fine.

Actually, everyone's supper sounds good. My appetite is definitely back.

Had some lovely fresh Flounder filets last night. Baked them in a mushroom/wine/cream sauce & served with a side of buttered tiny thin whole baby green & wax beans.

That looks really yummy! What's in it? I guess I could Google it. I used to work with a few Filipino people. When the company had potlucks for birthdays/holidays they always brought in some of their good food. That dish could have been one of them, because it seems familiar to me, but I never asked what was in it. Have you ever tried Lumpia? That is like the Chinese spring roll. I hope you enjoy your dinner! Someone should be starting a dinner thread for October 1st soon. Make sure to post this lovely picture over there, too!

Is that your picture?

I hate to say it its not my pic...i will try taking pics on the dishes i make and hopefully post it here..I sure the Pinoys in your potlock brought some Pancit Canton,,its a very popular dish to be serve especially during parties and such. What usually is in it are veggies, shrimp, strips of beef or chicken, some string beans and dried shrimp saute in soy sauce, salt and pepper, its a really easy dish to make. I had lumpia whenever i go back to the Philippines, i love the veggie lumpia as well as the chicken lumpia.
Filipino Cuisine is one of my favorites..I love the roasted suckling pig called Lechon

I would appreciate you'll opinion.

I find lamb really fatty so always buy a cut to slow cook. Lamb shanks are good cooked for 2 hours so they fall off the bone (though you have to allow for a lot of shrinkage). Neck of lamb either whole or diced is a good slow cooking joint too.

I tend to cook mine either with red wine/rosemary/garlic/black pepper or with chilli/paprika/cumin/tumeric and then tomatoes, courgette (zucchini I think it is) and bell peppers.

I have made a lamb korma before that turned out well - that has garlic, root ginger, cayenne pepper, garam masala, tomato puree, green chillies, dessicated coconut, ground almonds, coriander (both fresh and seeds) and cumin seeds. It's my fave takeaway as well.
