Breakfast was Ovaltine and supplements, per usual. Lunchwill be pork chop, Bush's Country style beans, and Sicilian spinach and eggs. Beverage will be Coke Zero, and dessert will be either an ice cream sandwich or a Cappucino Lava Cake. Supper is still up in the air. I plan on going to the gym after work, so I most likely won't be very hungry afterward and will keep in light and simple.

Cornmeal crusted baked tilapia and rest of the leftovers from our Labor Day cookout--grilled veggies and a couple of salads. Unfortunately, the leftover ice cream pie is gone.

my love and I will be dining on beef/rice balls [gb/rice/sun dried toms/garlic/onion/basil/parm cheese/grill seasoning/egg/NYT bread crumbs] grilled asparagus, caprese salad, NYT bread with butter and more of that yummy cake from last night, iced Mr. T for me, huge old glass of vino for the man of my dreams. even though we're having beef, it'll be white, he's not a red fan.

Tonight is roast chicken, corn on the cob, fresh tomatoes out of the garden, and peach pie. I love this time of year with all the fresh produce.

I better jump on the Talapia wagon. Luv vietnamese and thai food. There are several restaurants here, but would like to make your dish at home. Stir-fried fish sounds yum & healthy. Will you, could you, would you, share your recipe? The ginger sauce sounds yum as well. Thanks much.

It is finally cooler here today. Hallejuah. I was thinking of pasta but remembered ds had leftover ravioli last night, so I think I'll make him one of his other faves, tacos. Poor kid hasn't had a home-cooked meal since the heatwave started.

It's my regular Wednesday dinner out with friends - tonight we're heading to a favorite tapas place. They always have great food - I've been thinking about the Greek meatballs and drunken mushrooms all day

I have had so much rich and spicy food lately that I need something simple and a little bland. I've opted for tuna casserole. Not that it doesn't taste good, but I don't think it has anything that will further assault my digestive tract. If ya know what I mean.

THANK YOU elfie and pab, the "baked" beans were absolutely delicious!!!!!!!!

i used elfie's and poopsie's (what do you think the "p" stands for? ) recipes for baked beans as a guideline, made a little modification or 2, and tossed them in the crock pot last night. the beans were still a little firm at midnight, so i just shut it off, removed the crock, put the it in the refrigerator, and restarted it on low this morning. a coupla more hours should do it.

but the flavor was really great, reminding me of bush's maple cured bacon baked beans. my wife swore that it tasted just like the secret texas weiner sauce from the hot grill in clifon, nj - The Hot Grill , a local foodie landmark.

thanks again, ladies!!!!

getting back to the thread: the pork chops weren't defrosted yet, so we had take-out italian.
marinated portabellos/bufala mozz/roasted peppers/olives over mesculun salad, mussels fra diavolo, veal sorrentino, cavatelli with broccoli, spaghetti, and a coupla slices.

Last night I stirfried together a terrific fried rice, chock full of lots of great stuff - eggs, turkey ham, roast chicken, baby shrimp, Chinese cabbage, peas, Vidalia onions, etc., etc.

Husband had 2 big helpings, & I still have a couple of days worth of lunch leftovers as well!!
