I cooked in the oven some frozen artichokes with bechamelle,scrambled eggs,mozzarella,turmeric and bread crumbs.
Unfortunately I have a bad cough and I can't eat anything, so I'll leave this dish to my boyfriend.

I'm thinking I might attempt being a fun mom tonight instead of a "cranky" one and bake cookies with the kids this evening.....
and let them have pb&j for dinner since thats all 2 out of 3 want to eat anyway.
The oldest can have leftover meatloaf if he doesn't want a sandwich.

homemade oven fries, Trader Joe's fish sticks and applesauce - I'm coughing too much to care if it isn't visually appealing

DH went out "with the boys" last night for Fettuccine night at a local restaurant. He had the Jambalaya Fettuccine and brought some home. I have some salad and will have that with it. Though I am also craving a baked potato with bacon, cheese and sour cream, so who know what I will end up with.

Tonight I served grilled teriyaki tofu with a Chinese nectarine based duck sauce glaze on a bed a wilted fresh spinach, brown and wild rice pilaf with caramelized mushrooms and onions and dried cranberries, cole slaw with a rice wine, sweetener and salt marinade, and lightly grilled zucchini.

Because I do not like to clean burnt on sauces from my grill, I caramelize the duck sauce with a Benzomatic torch, which uses the same lp gas. The picture shows it being used with a piece of fish as it was too dark to take a picture tonight. But the technique is the same.

The baked potato won out! The last of the apple crisp for dessert.

Loppraine, that meal sounds good to me. I like to make my own French fries. Then at least I can control what goes on them. I like to sprinkle my fries with garlic pepper.

For dinner tonight, I had leftover Chipotle Enchilada Casserole with a half sliced avocado and fresh fruit on the side.
