Well, I sure can't compete with the gloriousness of the dinners y'all are producing
Honey let me put you at ease. After being a certified chef for years and years when you get home from work after having been up to your elbows in FOOD all day and night, the hardest thing you want to do sometimes is turn on the oven. Or eat some leftovers. Doesn't matter if it's a bowl of soup or rice or a frozen pizza. Being a chef in restaurants and cooking for the public is a hard job. LOL
Tonight is calves liver and onions for my husband. (yuck) but he deserves it after lowering his cholesterol by at least 75% he can have that high bit of meat.

Well since the vidalia's came in at my local grocery store I made French Onion Soup. Wow, I forgot how much that Gruyere cheese was, it had been so long since I bought some. But it was yummy, ate 2 bowls.

Karen, I didn't use a recipe.....this what I made the sauce with, zest/juice of 2 lemons (the lemons weren't very juicy), a little olive oil, heavy cream, half/half cream, parsley and a little cayenne. I mixed all the ingredients together and then reduced it a little.....poured it over the pasta/vegetables, which were just red onion, green beans, red, yellow and orange bell peppers. I would have added aspargus if I had had some. I thought about adding a little Parmesan but didn't. We really liked it, but anything lemon can't be too bad, can it?

Today, I'm reverting to breakfast!

I'm going to have a fried egg sandwich with a slice of cheddar cheese, tomato and bacon.... on the side, baked french fries. Definitely not for my waist-line!

I feel the same way about liver and onions. I would probably go hungry first. Not marooned-on-an-island hungry, but pretty darn hungry. I'm pretty much off red meat altogether. I had a lovely filet mignon last week and I kind of felt sick afterward. It sure tasted good, though. I hadn't had red meat in about 12 weeks.

Good for your husband lowering his cholesterol so much! It isn't in the cards for me because it's genetics, but I'm putting up the good fight because I really don't want to take those meds. Did they have your husband take psyllium? I guess that type of fiber binds to cholesterol and carries it out of your body. My doc told me to take it. The have it in capsules and if you can find a store brand, it isn't very expensive.

Neehoo, I hope he enjoyed his meal!
