Uh, Char Siu Bao, I'll take some of that!

I made a big ole pot of Loaded Potato Soup and shared with
the two neighbors, and I had a LARGE bowl for linner...
it was a huge hit, but not for my husband ... ya know,
that 10 year old spoiled brat, " eewww, it's creamy!"

It was delicious and I still have one more bowl for Moi

I think I need to tweak the recipe one more time
for it to be perfect IMHO anyways ...

a chopped Salad, one of his favorite meals.

Tonight was smorgasbord refrigerator fare. In other words, eat and/or dump and start again tomorrow.

Although, we did have fresh homemade strawberry pie for dessert.

We had chicken tenders, fried shrimp and fries. It motivated us to find our spice racks so we can unpack spices. Salt and pepper has been the only seasonings we have had in a while.

Tomorrow.....gosh, I hope we use some kind of seasoning!

I made breaded pork chops. Everything went into the oven, so all of the sides were roasted: baby potatoes, beets, and Brussels sprouts.

We did too much "adulting" this afternoon and were both pooped out. We ordered from our favourite Indian resto. There were onion bhajis, chicken pakora, chicken tikka, a lamb curry, a chicken curry, and roti. We were even too tired to fish out and nuke the already cooked brown basmati rice. That meal was a real treat.

Later, we had some chocolate pudding with whipped cream. I made the pudding yesterday. It had been my intention to make vanilla pudding for trifle, but I goofed and put the amount of sugar for chocolate pudding. By the time I noticed, I had already added milk to the sugar and I wasn't sure we had enough milk to start over. I use about eight times as much sugar for chocolate pudding as for the vanilla pudding for trifle. It would have been far too sweet. Well, the pudding was deeeelicious. We added a bit of Scotch, which went very well with the chocolate.
