Breakfast just the leftover half of my coffee with half-and-half and a touch of sugar from yesterday that I'd left in the fridge.

This was my lunch (to see the pic just scroll your mouse over the first item on the menu, Lobster Ravioli

It was wonderful.

A also had part of the loaf of herb bread that came in the meal dipped in a bit of EVOO, a small part of the salad that comes before the meal with this big-flat cruton type thing, and an after-dinner peppermint. Then just one yogurt coated pretzel.

I don't think I'll be having dinner tonight, because it was a pretty big late lunch and I'm not particularly hungry at all.

worked 11p to 11a, so i was kinda crispy when i got home. been cruising on adrenaline all day. my boy is so much fun i didn't even notice i was beyond exhaustion until about 9pm.

but, for eats today:

i ate with my birds for brunch: peanuts, almonds, dried papaya and mango, granny smith apples, organic carrots, cheez-its, and sliced cukes from the garden. also, a few serving spoon mouthfuls of mac and cheese, and some fried bologna that i made my son for lunch.

for diiner, i made a batch of the chorizo, swiss, and spinach stuffing i used in chicken and pork the other day. so we munched on that with some fresh polish rye bread and butter.
then i made spicy turkey sausage with fennel seed, peppers, onions, garlic, and oregano, with just a little sugo.

the salsicce con peperone was awesome!!!
i fried 6 links in evoo in a 12" non-stick skillet, with 4 garlic cloves cut into chunks over medium low heat. i've found turkey sausage toughens easily, or burns and breaks apart if cooked on too hot a temp, so i kept the heat low, turning the sausage and chunks of garlic often. they both browned nice and gently, with the sausage cooking just about through. they were set aside.
there was a good fond in the pan, which was picked up when i added a little more evoo, and a red and vidalia onion, cut into rings, then halved, over medium heat. the onion was frequently tossed, with just a dusting of dried oregano added. when the onions have just softened a bit, they were dumped over the sausage and garlic.
same pan, more evoo, then a few green bell peppers (cored, seeded and pithed, cut into strips), more dried oregano. as the peppers just begin to soften, the sausage, garlic, and onions were added back into the pan, with about a cup of plain tomato sauce, and 2 bay leaves were nestled in.
the pan was covered, and let simmer on very low for about 15 to 20 minutes.

since i cooked everything relatively gently and not too long, the sausage was very tender, and the onions and peppers were still al dente, not mushy.

My son and I decided to cook a bit too much today. We had homemade pancakes for breakfast (coffee for me of course), homemade pizza with Canadian bacon, peppers, mushrooms and black olives, homemade marble cake, and homemade enchiladas are already made for dinner tonight. Lots of water and green tea all day.
