Griddled two "Dolly Parton" chicken breasts, each cut in half, each with a different seasoning - so, four "flavors". Steamed fresh broccoli crowns and reheated the leftover baked spaghetti squash and steamed cabbage. Himself was happy...he had baguette for the starch!

I didn't bother with the sandwiches. The soup was hearty enough that it was plenty. It was kind of subtle tasting, but got better as we ate it. Quite yummy. There was a subtle, but definite baked potato flavour, which was very nice.

I will make it again, and tweak it some more.

Was planning on making a sausage kale soup, but could not get the sausage I wanted at our pitiful grocery. Thought I was going to have to come up with some other idea, but when I got home from work there was a message from DH saying he was bringing pizza home. "What a guy!" So I used the time I would have spent cooking to help a co worker out...she had asked me if I would "pull her hair thru a cap" in preparation for "color"...... So a couple of glasses of wine and some hairdressing and pizza for dinner, an okay Friday night :)
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

We ended up starting with some leftover roasted red pepper soup. Then I had baked potato salad from the deli and TB had chicken and greek salad.

Light meal but tasty!
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

We had pierogies with cheese, sour cream and tomato sauce, and a salad of lettuce, baby spinach, sliced hardboiled eggs, bacon bits, cut up radishes, cut up red onion, green and black olives, and the choice of ranch, blue cheese, and Italian dressings.

Pierogies are very filling and Mamma always said to serve this with a light salad.

With love,

Pot roast using a bone in chuck, with carrots, taters, onions and mushies.
If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

Do you use ground beef or lamb in your Shepherd's Pie, Steve? How do you construct it?
