see yesterday's thread for my today's dinner; we cooked the same & today added roasted shallot whipped taters, tourne potatoes, & julienne bell pepper, & julienne carrot..

today my plate was: lamp chop persillade, a slice of sauteed duck with burgundy reduction, venison steww, julienne carrot, asparagus tips & obliques, edamame, spaghetti squash, oven-roasted squash, risotto, shallot mashed taters,oven-roasted tomato petal, risotto, yellow squash & sauteed zucchini tournes, wild rice, tourne carrot, & i tasted sauce of wild mushroom compote.

just kinda picked there was so much food! plate was a pigsty after presenting my plating to Chef, that's when we dive for the food; i just threw a little of each on, & it was so pretty with the colors!

Well, I sure can't compete with the gloriousness of the dinners y'all are producing: turkey tacos with refried beans and jicama crudites. I will be making my own corn tortillas, though. All low fat, of course. I'm still on trying to lower the inherited high cholesterol thing. My family is getting used to it, though. My daughter and her family went for some BBQ and she could only eat a little because she said it seemed so heavy and greasy. And it wasn't greasy BBQ---I used to eat there on occasion as well.

I've made Chicken Pot Pie for my hubby to eat while I go to work tonight. I made a bit extra so I can freeze the filling and just top it with biscuits whenever I need a quick dinner on the table.

I blogged about it - if you want to check it out!

A repeat of the other night's dinner; meatloaf but this time with a creamy lemon sauce covered pasta/fresh vegetables. I am getting so boring when it comes to cooking lately.

Have a boatload of meatloaf left from last night, so I'll have some of that with hash brown patties and spinach. Still have some brownies. I'm rationing them because they're so good.

Marigene, your plate looks beautiful - can you share the pasta recipe? I'm making stuffed red and green peppers...don't have a real recipe. I'll make this one up as I go along. A green salad. Some fresh mangoes.
