A full blown Hawaiian FEAST!

But that is not to be, and I have no clue what I'm serving tonight ...
How`z`bout you?

For our usual early dinner, we shared a ribeye steak, shrimp, asparagus and french fries.

Dessert will be ice cream

We'll have panco-crusted seared salmon, along with sauteed zucchini, onions and garlic. Will have some cast iron rolls slathered with real butter and shoofly pie for dessert.

i made BS thighs and breast tenders. Quick seared and into the oven for a bit.
Note to self. A bit of time is not as long and boneless get done a lot quicker than bone- in. Caught that hiccup in time, so all were good. Cream gravy on mashers and buttered corn. Still warm and melty chocolate chip cookies and decaf for afters.

Stromboli with onions, red bells, garlic slices, pepperoni, Italian sausage, moz, provolone and Parm R. Craig slathered the 1 on his plate with marinara and saying it looked like a hot mess is an understatement, so the picture is 1 on the baking sheet.

My Calzone is ricotta, moz, Parm R and spinach.

Today is Frank's birthday! For dinner, grilled steak, lobster tail, loaded baked potato, and salad. For dessert is chocolate cake with chocolate icing. A bit nervous about the cake. I'm not a baker, and I made it from scratch. The kitchen was a mess and the cake is very lopsided, so I hope it is yummy!

Stirling is having a gout flare, so we are skipping the planned Thanksgiving supper for now. We were going to have a country omelette and toast, but I got another migraine (with aura and mild headache). So, Stirling had some store bought cheese tortellini with Classico roasted garlic and onion tomato sauce. I had some of the sausage and bean soup from the other day.

My plan was to cook some chicken, mushroom, yellow bells and onion kebabs on the grill. But, the chicken I moved to the fridge last night was still frozen solid. So, it may have to wait until tomorrow.

I had a Prime NY Strip (medium rare, of course) and a baked potato last night, so I can just graze tonight.

My wife has a warped sense of humor, and has turned Columbus Day into Galumpkis Day, so now, by tradition, we have stuffed cabbage annually on this day.

My birthday is in December. Can you make me a dinner like that?

In The Middle Of The Desert,
but what I did make was a Hawaii-Style Cold Somen Noodle Salad,
ONO (that's delicious in Hawaiian ) !!!

I'll need to re-do this post, I missed the step of rinsing the noodles under cold water once cooked... I used a different brand of Somen, and it did not mention that step, so ...

Just want to say Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends!


I made a recipe from one of my favorite murder mystery writers, Diane Mott Davidson. It's The Whole Enchilada Pie recipe, but I made only half a recipe worth. Besides topping with lettuce (among other things) I put it on a bed of lettuce so we had more veggies.

Happy Birthday to Frank. Lovely meal.

and.... Lopsided cakes, at least in my house, are as delicious as straight ones.
