Dinner tonight..Wed. 10/23/19

I came across a blast from the past recipe I used to make from Peg Bracken's "I Hate to Cook" book published in the '60's. I lost my book copy somewhere along the way so I'm glad for my memory jog. I'll be using some frozen artichoke hearts from TJ's today, but canned water packed artichokes work well too as I remember. I'll be serving it with Orzo, something I never used in those days.

If you like thighs, artichokes and mushrooms, this is delicious.

What's cooking at your house today?

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

One of the local chain markets had frozen whole turkey breasts on sale for half off, so we decided to get 1, roast it and have club sandwiches. I only have a single decker club. We'll portion the rest of the turkey in meal size packages and have several meals from it. Homemade chips.

We might have just enough leftovers to satisfy us. I made salads earlier. I called "dibs" on the last of the wonton soup to have after we come home from picking up my car, Klaus, from his pre-vacation check-up. He's ready to launch whenever we are. But first we have to go get him. So, bye!

Last night was hot dogs on whole wheat buns. I had one bun and one on plate. I really don't like buns or want those carbs. I also made a small batch of mac salad.
