What's for Dinner -Saturday May 19, 2007?

What's for dinner? Let me know so I can decide who's house I'm going to visit.


I have a Dijorno pizza in the freezer and I was going to cook that up and call it a day. However, after reading a food blog last night, I want to try making homemade pizza dough with whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour (actually has some all purpose in it too) and my mouth is watering after looking at there shrimp alfredo pizza that this couple made.

So ONE dijorno pizza and one homemade shrimp alfredo pizza.

Today is cat adoption day, so I'll be eating junk food, but you can come to my house and help yourself to whatever's in the fridge and/or freezer. Just make sure to feed and water the kittens, and clean their litter box!










Oh, don't tell Tyler or you'll soon be seeing them at Applebee's, but Panini del Monte Cristo were a success!

Mexican chicken, brown rice and roasted peppers and mushrooms. Dessert, I'm not sure but it needs to be something--I'm craving sweets today!

Last night with 3 new recipes for me to embark on, they were all 3 major smashes. How often can you say that? Uncle Bob's Holly Grail Hush Puppies, KitchenElfs Korean Short Ribs, and Bobby Flay's ThrowDown (his competitor's recipe for) > Red Velvet Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting on half the batch and Constance's White Frosting on the other half. OH SO GOOD!

Tonights dinner? Dunno yet.

Veggie lasagna. Same as traditional meat lasagna but with lots of sauteed vegetables- zucchini, asparagus, mushrooms, red peppers and spinach- with marinara sauce, just a little ricotta and fresh mozzarella. Salad on the side instead of bread- still watching the calories here- 4 pounds lost...26 more to go!

I've got a ham going in my smoker right now. Gonna give it until 6, then take it out and carve it up. Probably corn, and not sure about the starch. Cornmeal mush, maybe?

no, no, no mush , Allen! Corn is a starch. If you need a bread-like side, make cornbread or cornbread muffins. Or grill some pineapple or stir-fry some peaches with brown sugar and powdered ginger. Either will go great with your ham.

Nobody's plan, just me...

breakfast...snack...lunch...snack...dinner...herba l tea
eating dinner no later than 5:00 pm (only tea after that)
no more soda
no snacking after dinner
no sweets (except special occasions)
literally cutting portions in half!- (that's a BIG one I think)


Good Luck to you!!

I lit up the charcoal grill & made kabobs from a large Shady Brook Farms Marinated Turkey Tenderloin cut into chunks, along with chunks of baby zucchini, orange & yellow bell peppers, Vidalia onions, & extra-large fresh white mushroom caps. Served them with a large green salad.
