I bought mine fresh, but then it was frozen, because I couldn't eat it that night.

I LOVE seafood!.... except for mussels, oysters or clams

Green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, sweet onion, navy beans, chickpeas, and cheddar cheese stuffed into whole wheat pitas, topped with a yogurt sauce.

best laid plans and all that. had a lovely tuna on a croissant about four so wasn't hungry for dinner. baked up some froz. choco chip cookies. had a half dozen for dinner with glass of milk. i can get away with the sugars most of the time if it replaces a meal.

Wow, I have finally found another person who can't/doesn't eat mussels, oysters and clams. I have a gag reflex that just doesn't take nicely to their textures!

But seafood - shrimp, prawns, crab, lobster - heaven on earth! I eat most fish too.

I made chili. I had some meat cooked and seasoned in the freezer marked "chili meat" as I was going through looking something easy to make. So, that was the choice! I make it very mild for Dad and then DH and I just add any combination of spices - chile powder, cumin, corriander, anchoe powder, etc.

I wanted to make biscuits but didn't quite get there.

I think it's strange that I love all fish (that I've tried), shrimp, crab, lobster and scallops, but I cannot stand mussels, oysters and clams!

This was our exciting chicken-noodle soup dinner. On the side, garlic bread and Saltines.

From now on, I'm only posting what I had for dinner. I usually have to make two separate meals... posting and taking a picture of one is enough.

I'm with Frank! If you go to the effort of making two separate meals for one person each (no small feat) you should show off your efforts! I love reading about and seeing the variations you come up with. Besides, I sometimes have to come up with three variations for DH (gluten/lactose intolerance), Dad (diabetic) and me (watching carbs) and I tell the world .

VB I always look forward to your meals and pictures.
