Official Dinner Thread for Wednesday the 16th ©

Got to talking about take-out meals with a neighbor yesterday and that put me in the mood for a pizza. So we did a take-out from a new local joint that's about a month old and getting rave reviews.

We ordered Greek food. I had a souvlaki platter. DH had a chicken brochette platter. We got a side order of dolmadakia. We'll finish those over the next couple of days.

It was supposed to be taco salad, but I didn't have tortilla chips. Fortunately, I always have a back up bag of Aldi corn chips. Still yummy!

Tempura Sole fillet. The batter was lightly seasoned with S&P, cayenne pepper, and paprika. The light, crispy coating allowed the full fish flavor to shine. Also had sweet corn on the cob, nuked 4 minutes in the husk. Corn was then removed from the husk, and buttered. Beverage - pineapple juice. Desert - fresh, ripe peach, cold from the fridge. It all tasted great to me.

Thanks. You can't see the butter that's melted into the potato It's all good, though. Doctor says I need the calories.

Sure, but first you have to have Crohn's disease for 15+ years (I first met him in 2003). Honestly, i don't advise it

I figured there was butter on those 'taters. Butter, like so many things, is healthy in moderation. Your plate is full of all the different colours, it's well balanced for protein, etc., and nothing is swimming in grease. It might not be 100% healthy for everyone, but darn, to me, it looks healthy and tasty.

Yes, I was kinda kidding I do try to eat healthful food for the most part. DH was overweight a couple of years ago. He really wanted to lose weight, so he changed his diet and exercise habits and has lost around 50 pounds since then.

Kudos to DH. That's not easy to do.

Yes. Our doctor jokingly told us that he had to stay healthy so he can take care of me He was very determined and when he sets a goal, it's important to him to achieve it. He has an afternoon routine: after work (he's often home between 2:30 and 3:30 pm since he starts around 7:30-8 am), he does yard work or a project, then walks the dog to warm up, then goes for a run or bike ride, then works out in the attic (a finished room with equipment). He gets very antsy on rainy days
