I think today is the 25th.

Ayam panggang (Indonesian grilled chicken) with jasmine rice, Javanese carrot and cucumber salad (pickled), and sambal kecap made with homemade kecap mannis. It was really good. Need to work on the salad/pickled veges though.

This morning I was casting about for dinner ideas and came upon the idea of searching the daily dinner threads. I cast back 5-6 months and started reading. When I got to Chili Mac and Cheese I stopped. SO gave her enthusiastic seal of approval so that's what was for dinner tonight.

We have both leftover ham-mac-and-cheese and chicken pot pie. I had a little of each.

We need something from the fruit-and-veggie column. I could make a salad...but I'm thinking those blueberries in the fridge would make a nice cobbler or crisp.

I just found out that today is "I Hate Cilantro Day". Huh, I could have cooked something without cilantro.

Oh, wait, I do that every day.

We had frozen tortellini with Stirling's wonderful pasta sauce and a salad with some pretty darned good blue cheese dressing that I made to go with it. No cilantro involved.

We had one of our all-time favorite seafoods - Scallops- this time with a honey/lemon/soy sauce, which was new to me but excellent !

Love tortellini - tell us more about Stirling's wonderful pasta sauce - sounds like a great accompaniment to tortellini - actually any tasty sauce would likely be excellent with this pasta - at least to me.

I made some fruit salad for dessert. That really hit the spot.

Interesting..

I had the TV on, as background noise, and Trisha Yearwood did a segment about Chili Mac and Cheese.. I was immediately intrigued..

Imagine.. 80 years old and have never had that combination..
I'm correcting that very soon..

We went to a diabetes / heart-healthy cooking class yesterday at the local extension agency. One of the dishes she demonstrated was a fried-cabbage dish with jalapeno peppers. Like the cabbage part, but not the peppers. She also told us ways to vary up the dish with other add-ins. Think I'll try it one day next week.


Had left-over pot roast and associated side dishes for supper last night.
