Many choices. LOL I can choose Pork chops and sauerkraut, chili, meatloaf or chicken. Haven't decided yet.

Every shot missed, so it's a vegetarian dinner tonight.

Vegetarian black bean chili served over sweet potato. I've made it a couple of times before, and wife requested it tonight.

I am still only eating soft foods thanks to my teeth and throat problems. I just had my smoothie from breakfast and will have pierogies (boiled not fried, the way I like them).

For TB I made LP's taco goulash on rice!

It may sound fancy and innovative but it really was just a way to use up some taco meat, chopped green chilies, a half a yellow bell pepper, and crushed tomatoes. I heated it up and served it over leftover rice and shredded cheddar on top!

Alfredo potatoes. This is another experiment -er, recipe - I'm trying.

It involves peeling potatoes that are already so soft I'm not sure they need to be boiled to make them fork tender, adding a cup of cream to a cup of Classico Alfredo sauce (maybe I'm confused, but isn't that sort of like adding four more legs to a spider?), and putting in my own flourishes, namely, a handful of Parmesan cheese and some parsley, which is my go to when bracing brandy isn't available.

The whole thing is supposed to sit for two hours wrapped in towels like a jockey in a sauna, but I opted for the faster method of heating the oven up and putting the whole pot in there, covered, like a jockey with a hat in a sauna. You're supposed to turn the oven off and let the flavors just meld, but I have a feeling that I'm going to have to cook this a bit before I can eat it.

Lol, were you wearing a stormtrooper uniform?



We had a weird combo for dinner tonight.
I picked up some Japanese food for a snack today (Steamed squid with gochujang, Korean style beef negimaki, and salmon sashimi)., so that was our appetizer.

Then, DW made a small pork loin, mashed potatoes, and a salad with toasted baguette croutons in a peach vinaigrette dressing.

We're having roasted Cornish hens stuffed with fresh rosemary, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts and iced tea. May have a couple of bakery cookies for dessert. Both Glenn and I are too tired to even think of eating. We may pass on the cookies.

For me, I've been undergoing treatment for breast cancer since October 2015. Had my last radiation treatment this morning.

Glenn is having a serious issue with a 20-year-old hip replacement which was the result of an accident at his place of work.

The old joint has joined the enemy and is coming apart. As a result his femur has several fractures. In two weeks, he's gone from walking with a cane, to using a walker, and now using a wheelchair. He's in great pain and worn out from the extra effort it takes to get around.

I'm additionally tired because I'm taking up the slack doing the things here that he normally does.

He has an appointment tomorrow morning with an orthopaedic specialist. Here's hoping for something positive....soon.

Well still not sure. It will be left over pot roast or chili.

Oh, I'm sorry, K.T.. I hope you've beaten your cancer, and Glenn gets to shake a new leg soon.

{{Katie and Glen}} Oh my gosh! I'm shocked and saddened with your health problems. Many blessings to you both for recovery.

On this glorious day, I've been marinating some wings with Goya and Sriracha for the grill, and veggies in another baggie with an Italian vinaigrette for the grill basket.
SC will have some toaster oven Tater Tots.

That's a lot to deal with. I hope things improve from here on out.

Alfredo potatoes made the cut. They're not half bad. On to the next recipe.

Katie, I hope both you and your husband are better soon!

For our repast, I prepared two different meals, much to the chagrin of Missus Dear Friend who felt this was above and beyond the call of duty, but there ya go.

For DH, handmade pasta (leftover), what I call tagliatelle (I'm sure it's no where close but...) with from the deep freeze, homemade Meatballs (beef, pork, veal) and a nice marianara (TJ's Organic Marinara, I cheated a bit) and some leftover ciabatta.

For myself, I had just a bit of leftover browned Ground Beef and a coupla spoonfuls of sour cream, so I put together a Stroganoff, which DH does not care for ("It's creamy, EEEWWWW!!) but I simply adore... I haven't had this in SOOOOOOOOOOOOO long... I served it over some already made steamed white rice.
DONE!

DH might be catching a cold (he works in a germ factory, I mean the school system ) and wanted comfort food last night. Smashed burgers, macaroni and cheese and sliced veggies with ranch dressing for dipping. Easy for me, yummy for him
