White miso glazed, marinated, yellow fin tuna. Stir-fried vegis and "forbidden rice". The tuna was grilled and served with the rice and vegis.

I slept through lunch, which was some of the chicken soup our friend made us a few weeks ago. There was so much I froze it and since we are both nursing colds/sinus infections, I thought it was a good choice today. DH let me sleep and heated his own up. I woke just before he left and had some after.

He made himself a chicken burgers with the last of the homemade patties in the freezer with some kettle chips, fruit and carrot sticks to take for work.

I am having sinus and throat problems again so will have my favourite deli's scalloped potatoes. They almost make being sick worth it! ALMOST.

I'll grill the chicken breast and add mushrooms, leek, corn, and don't know what else. What are you making?
Got a late start, it is still simmering:

12 c chicken stock
Meat from 1 grilled split chicken breast, bone in, skin on
4 tomatoes, grilled
1-1/2 c corn (from the freezer, our sweet corn)
1 c celery
2 leeks, chopped (the celery, leeks, and carrots sauteed in butter until limp)
1/2 c carrot
4 c wild rice (3:1 wild rice to white, cooked with a mix of mushrooms, from the freezer)
splash of brandy
smoked paprika
sprinkle of hot peppers
dash of liquid smoke
2 T of cream cheese

I'll probably add milk thickened with some flour when the flavors are married. Got the batteries charging so I can take a pic of the end product--eventually, either tonight or tomorrow.

PS--now that I've had my test cup, don't know if I will cream it or not...I like it like it is.

i hope they stopped that silliness.
Happy Birthday! Little Buddy!

Shrimp with a garlic/herbes de Provence/white wine sauce over brown rice. Sauteed broccoli on the side. Some kind of decadent dessert later.
