What's tempting and on the table - Sunday, October 19, 2014?

For some unknown reason I've been drawn to the kitchen today so I took advantage of that and we'll be having Zesty Pot Roast from the October 2014 issue of Southern Living magazine, along with braised white turnips (from the same issue), glazed baby carrots, iced tea and, ta da, for dessert we'll have a healthy slice of Blue Ribbon Caramel Apple Pie.

I have a feeling we'll be quite satisfied and full.

Daughter's choice tonight so it's rib eyes, baked taters, grilled-marinated zucchini, fried mushrooms, small chef salads....

I got my daughter a job at the shop. Now, that she deals with steak every day she works, she craves it even more. Every time I ask her what she would like to eat for Sunday dinner, well....you guessed it....

I'll be grilling a couple of NY strip steaks and will serve them with baked potatoes and string beans.

We split a Philly cheesesteak, in Philly! Actually, at the airport. It was quite good. Of course the cheese choice was whiz. The fries were nicely seasoned and crispy too!

We're on our way to Washington, DC. DH is going to a conference and I'm tagging along for the free hotel room We'll figure out where to have dinner once we get to the hotel.

"Tagging along" is fun GG! I did that when Himself flew out to CA for a training week. Sure we paid for my ticket, but I had the one week free. Then we used a vacation week (and our own money), picked up our son who what between job and semester commitments, and toured CA. Or I did until I did a number on a knee. The guys would go out for the day, then bring lots of pictures back for me to look at. *sigh*



I'll bake up a couple small fillets of fresh schrod, heat the beets for me, lightly steam some Brussels sprouts for Himself. Starchy item is still to be determined, but right now I'm leaning towards brown rice with toasted slivered almonds and a fine grate of lemon zest.

Probably not much this evening. Had a late and very filling lunch.

My daughter and grandson came over this afternoon and we had a smorgasbord of sandwiches...egg salad, sunflower seed butter with peach jam, and ham and cheese. I cut them all into quarters and served them on a huge platter, and we ended up eating all of them. Sides were potato chips, watermelon, sliced fresh pears from the farm stand, raspberry sorbet, and lemonade.

I'll probably just nibble on some cheese and crackers later this evening.

We had some nuked Trader Joes lamb meatballs sliced and added to sliced jarlesberg cheese and home made salsa on home made tortillas. Cooked them off in my antique Westinghouse sandwich maker for a makeshift quesadilla.

And two chocolate chip cookies.

Glad to hear you have an appetite for a change. You know your Nurse PF will be glad to here this.

We had pan fried Costco loin lamb chops, tri colored rice cooked with fresh spinach, and broiled asparagus in olive oil, garlic and Herbs de Provence.

I made a big batch of spaghetti sauce to freeze so we had that over bowtie pasta. And salad...we're cleaning out the garden and I found a patch of little volunteer mustard, arugula and assorted Asian greens and the last of the sungold cherry tomatoes. Dressed them with a balsamic/dijon/maple vinaigrette.

I know she will be happy with me. And I ate more than my usual three mouthfuls. I actually filled my plate and ate a little more than half.

We ordered in pizza, but never again from that place. I made chicken and andouille gumbo for later this week. Always tastes better the next day or two.
