Cabbage, kielbasa and lentil soup with carrots, potato and onion. Crumbled fresh thyme. Now, that's a mouthful.

I kept out of the halloween candy I bought this a.m. untouched all day!

I had a fairly disastrous lamb steak in a rustic roll. The lamb 'steaks' looked OK in the pack although I should have heeded the band of sinew around their edge...(the kind you get on a duck breast that needs to be removed). Even if I had removed it, the sinew went through the centre of the steak.

I fried it off with some onions and placed it in the roll with some roasted red peppers and tomatoes. However, it was not easy to eat - grisly...had to pull it away from the sinew. Ugh! Lesson learnt.

Tonight I made the dinner I had planned for last night: baked chicken tonkatsu with a dipping sauce, rice and braised green beans with oyster sauce and sesame oil. Yummy

It is written into our marriage contract that if I work on the tourist railroad, I have to stop at Yanni's Greek restaurant and bring dinner home.
Dinner was a Greek Salad with Gyro meat for Kayelle and a Gyro sandwich for me.

Yummy looking dinner, GG!

Joey, you're killing me with that shrimp po'boy.

Creative, that's a shame your lamb steaks didn't turn out as well as expected.

The slow roasted country style ribs we had tonight were fall off the bone tender and delicious, and we all pretty much stuffed ourselves. Tyler and I went outside after dinner and played kickball out on the back lawn and at least worked some of it off. Then we came back in for ice cream and handed out candy to little ghosts and goblins. I'm done for the night and it's only 7:00.

If it is just me I will probably just have a small salad as I am not hungry these days.
We had a late lunch of chicken thighs and salad. TB never went to his brother's so after the tricker-treaters finished coming I had a toasted English muffin with veggies and cheese. TB had potato chips and raw veggies.

Good looking and sounding food there, people.

We had the stuffed peppers I prepped last night and baked off tonight. While they cooked, I trimmed and peeled a few very tired-looking potatoes, mashed them up, and used them as the pillow for the stuffed peppers to nap on. Those peppers never saw us sneak up on them.
