T-bone steaks, Greek salad (using a recipe posted here yesterday), rice (maybe fruited that I found an easy looking recipe for), and home-baked bread. The steaks scare me a little but I copied all the tips from another thread here on cooking steaks so I'm cautiously optimistic. There are only 2 kids here this week so if I mess up, at least it's not $60 worth of steaks!

Ovaltine for breakfast and salad for supper, as usual. Lunch is red snapper with five spice sauce, hot buttered carrot slices, and brown rice. Dessert will be either lava cake or an ice cream sandwich, I haven't decided which yet. Beverage is Coca Cola Zero because I ran out of Italian wimp water and haven't had time to replenish it.

Since it is rather cool here and raining, I've decided on meatloaf, and either mashed potatoes or potatoe pancakes, and another veggie yet to be determined, and of course gravy.

Tonight it will be broiled Sole Filets with a Balsamic Beurre Noisette, roasted Asparagus, and Mushroom Risotto. Maybe some crusty bread as well.

I put about 1/2 a slab o' ribs w KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce in the slow cooker at about 6 AM; and they're done. They literally did fall off the bones... So (don't laugh) I'm serving them on hot dog buns (w/o the bones). Wanted to make beer-battered onion rings, but have potato salad, cold mac salad & corn I want to use up. There's plenty of fruit in the fridge as well. All I really feel like eating is a Nestle Crunch ice cream bar.

Nice thick, well marbled ribeye steaks marinated with chipotle-roasted tomatoe-garlic-black pepper-olive oil, grilled over real hickory. Served with yucca fries w/ lime garlic aioli and a butter lettuce and vine ripe tomatoe salad. Cabernet from napa stags leap area. I better get busy.

Went to a new Japanese restaurant that's just opened just round the corner from us (which is take away heaven - 2 Chinese, a pizza place, KFC, Indian, kebab, greasy spoon and Fish & Chips all 200 yards from my house).

Had a sushi starter and some tempura veggies, some grilled silver-black cod (which was amazing) and some kind of minced beef crock-pot thing with rice and egg.

Very nice - will be going back (especially when they get their license and I can have some saki!).

regallion, if i lived with you, i'd be 300 lbs..
can i come visit, anyway?

change of plans for us. i worked late, so i picked up sushi on the way home for us.

we had salads with avocado, veggies, and ginger dressing for starters. then, the sush-sashimi combo for 2.
20 pieces of sashimi (4 each of maguro, sake, tai, saba, and shiro maguro), and 10 pieces of sushi (2 each of maguro, sake, tai, ebi, and unagi).
like that wasn't enough, i also had a salmon skin hand roll.

i'm stuffed.
