What's on your plate Monday, 10-2-2017?

Can't believe nobody has started thread yet. We had the spaghetti and meatballs from the current BA Craig made this past weekend, as well as the garlic confit bread spread in the same issue, which I thought was just bordering on too salty, but all was really good.

Well, GD mentioned that she had had Zucchini Crusted Pizza with her mom and that it was "good". SO liked the idea as she is low carbing again. The original thought was that SO and GD would have that for lunch and I would have leftovers.

Then GD got called for a flight and the ZCP was rescheduled for SO's and my dinner. In my humble opinion, even loaded with pepperoni, it was awful. SO liked it.

I put a sirloin tip roast in the sous vide at 6AM and let it do it's thing all day. Thirteen hours later, it came out looking (and tasting) great. Plenty of leftovers to have for lunch tomorrow, too.

Missus Dear Friend (who's Vegan/DF/GF) made us Cauliflower Crust Pizza
I dunno, I mean, if you're gonna eat pizza, eat pizza!
I just can't wrap my head around folks (DC members excluded of course ) who say they're vegan but then search out foods that are "like meat", I don't get that one, but I suppose to each their own, right? *shrug*

>edit: oh, dinner that's right!
We are having leftover Chicken Parm, a side salad and leftover Ciabatta (no pasta)

Being low carb, I've had to adapt, but I'm also not a fan of cauliflower crust pizzas. I've had really good luck with almond and coconut flower crusts. Trust me - they don't taste like almonds or coconuts. The vegan thing, I do get. I was vegetarian for a while back in the 90s, not because I didn't like meat, but because I had seen firsthand the way animals were raised for slaughter. I missed the flavor, though. These days I feel healthier when I have animal protein in my diet.

Chicken cutlets, mashed spuds, and sauteed stringbeans with red peppers courtesy of the News department. The news folks were stuck in the studio all day due to the shooting in Vegas, so they catered in order to keep the full crew on standby for breaking news.

Whomever made the mashed should not be a cook. Not professionally, anyway. They were a mix of gummy paste and chunks of both raw and cooked potatoes.
