Just mushroom caps stuffed with some sausage and other odds and ends. I'm experimenting with freezing them so I can use a few at a time.
Unfortunately, anything mushroomy makes me turn away, but I'd be interested to hear the results of your experiment.

It was yummy!

Has he tried teriyaki or tempura? I sometimes get a tempura bento box with shrimp, veggies, and rice. It usually comes with a salad with ginger dressing. Might be able to substitute cucumber salad - I could eat a huge bowl of just that Or tonkatsu (fried pork with dipping sauce) and rice.

I can usually get him to go out if I know someplace has egg foo yung. He's definitely not adventurous.

Funny you mention that. Our family has a similar tradition, but for us it's Christmas Eve. Several years ago, I was making a big Christmas dinner and didn't feel much like cooking the night before. So we got in the car and drove into St. Paul to grab a bite. You'd think that St. Paul, being a good sized city, would have many restaurant options. And it usually does. However, finding anything open that particular night was an exercise in futility.

Finally, we came across a sushi restaurant that was open. We pretty much had the entire place to ourselves. The owner explained, "We don't celebrate the holiday, so we are always open on Christmas and Christmas Eve."

The food was wonderful and we've been back almost every year since.

Our daughter, the lacto-fisho-eggo-tarian (or whatever she calls herself - the title changes from one day to the next ) asked if she could cook for us last night. Well, far be it from me to turn down a kitchen volunteer!

So she did the grocery shopping and made us a nice dinner of broiled fish, sautéed asparagus, and even gussied up the plate with a bit of garnish. For a 22-year-old college student, I think she did a good job. It was simple, but tasty.

Not only does that look delicious Steve, it says much about her thoughtfulness. "She did you proud" as my grandmother would say.

Not sure I should be admitting this (and doubt that anyone has said this yet) but here goes.

I visit my mum in hospital to help feed her the evening meal. She has next to no appetite so I try and coax her to eat as much as she can before she flatly insists no more. Sooooo.....yep, you guessed it, I ate the remains! (I hasten to add she does not have any infectious condition). It was some kind of meat pie (nondescript), mash, veg and gravy + some of her unwanted jam sponge and custard.

Perhaps the redeeming part came as I got home. I have found a great soup range - pulled pork, lentils and kale....had that, with gusto!
