Went to lunch with a college roommate that I haven't seen for about 30 years. We went to Iron Hill Brewery. I had a cup of potato leek soup then a beet, goat cheese and green bean salad on Bibb lettuce.

Last night - mussels and pizza at the Suds Pub in Bethel, Maine (Celtics game - no TV at our summer place), tonight nothing. I diet by fasting one or two days a week which allows me to exercise creativity the other 5 or 6 days.

I've gotten into the habit of letting my Costco purchases drive my dinners about once a week the way the lectionary (prescribed passages of scripture for all Sundays) drives sermon topics in liturgical churches. I'm either doing sausage meals or chicken breast meals or chicken thigh meals. The latter has caused me to make the yummiest dinners. Chicken gumbo (researched on line... Wikipedia finally explained to me the difference between gumbo, etouffee, jambalaya and creoles), chicken adobo, chicken stew, and some other great chicken thing that I can’t remember… senior moment.
Along with the Coctco’s “lectionary” at least once a week I unfreeze "glop" from the garden in Maine. Caldo verde (kale, beef and chorizo) and callalo (kale, chard, okra, jalapenos and pork) and lots of soups... blended veggies and chicken boullion and CREAM to make it a sure winner.
These dinners are all winter. In spring we eat chef salads from the garden. And all kinds of other garden stuff in summer and fall.
All seasons interspersed with ideas from this great thread!

Went with my wife, eldest son and Dad to Denny's for late breakfast/early lunch today (11:30 am). I had whole wheat pancakes with diced bacon, pecans and strawberries with whipped cream and a little maple syrup. Had a coupon for 20% off entire check, so it was very good food and a good deal. ☺

Didn't really know what to do for dinner, so stir fried some chicken tenderloins, and made a sauce with cream, cheese, salsa and corn. Served over rice, topped it off with fresh guacamole and Anaheim peppers.
DH asked what it was called, I said Mexican.

My wonderful wife and I decided to go out to dinner tonight to celebrate our anniversary since she worked the day shift today. We went to a great Greek restaurant we frequent called "Greek To Me". They had a special to honor Restaurant Week in WNY - two dinners on their weekly specials menu for 20.12. We both ordered and loved the Greek Platter - chicken and beef souvlaki on skewers, Gyro (pressed lamb), Greek potatoes, a Greek salad, pita bread and a small sundae for dessert. Very good food at a very good price. It was wonderful. ☺

Chop Suey/Chow Mein. I have celery in the fridge. I like cooked celery, but there are few recipes that feature it. Then I had a flash back to my middle school years. The assignment was to cook a meal for the family. I made a dish of meat, celery, onions, canned water chestnuts, canned bean sprouts and canned mushrooms. Topped with packaged Chow Mein noodles. And thickened with corn starch. This was about 55 years ago! But I remember it fondly. I also have a lot of mushrooms from Costco, so no canned mushrooms.

This certainly won't be the crisp, fresh stir fry I've grown to enjoy in my later years. As my husband says, it will be Chinese comfort food.

The reason I call it by both names is that in my Google search I learned that Chop Suey is thickened with corn starch and is not associated with noodles, while Chow Mein is associated with noodles but is not thickened with corn starch. I think I'll call my dish Chow Suey.

Of course Victor, batches of sauce and meatballs get frozen for quick dinners. The manicotti were frozen though but good ones. One of these days I'll make them homemade, my MIL used to do it all the time.

Las the tang of the cream cheese on the bread is so much better than butter and I'm not a garlic bread fan, I like the chewiness of a good Italian loaf.

I've never had Chow Mien or Chop Suey!

We had a 20th wedding anniversary, so the once every "score" treat was brunch with DH at Cafe Fleuri in the Boston Financial District. There's a pretty atrium there and serving tables for every kind of food. On Sundays they have their seafood bar, and lobster pasta was either a prepared ramekin or sauteed fresh at the pasta table. Desserts included a crepe table that could do a flambe if you wanted it. There was also a salad table, an omlet table, a chocolate fountain table and a waffle table, but who could eat it all?

Whatever will I make? :) Well - I could dig Jerusalem Artichokes and make soup - but they sometimes give people gas, Maybe there is enough wild garlic to make more soup . . . Where is a big pile of Lamb's Quarters when you need them? I also have to take the train and the subway to get there.

We just finished dinner as my wife needs to be to work at 1:00 pm today. I successfully tried my hand at Pasta Carbonara. In addition to the bacon, I added sauteed sliced baby portabella mushrooms, sliced green peppers and onions, green peas and imitation crab meat. I've always been leery to try making this dish for fear the eggs would curdle or scramble. It turned out delicious and I will make it again.

Stir fried chicken breast, red peppers, onions and mushrooms, with lots of soy sauce, over rice.

Last night spaghetti puttanesca and a tossed salad.

P.S. - After I posted this I added a handful of frozen leaf spinach. I keep a bag of it to throw in stir fries and make myself feel healthy. The stir fry was super yummy.

mmmm...hot cross buns sound good.

I was adventurous again and made fried fish with my own batter. We had plain haddock filets in the freezer, so I made a batter using pancake mix, an egg, a packet of yeast, salt, cayenne pepper, garlic pepper, about 2 tsp Splenda/sugar mix and about 1.5 cups water. That was the perfect texture for the fish but there was left-over batter. I added some flour and made hush puppies. I fried the fish and then the hush puppies in canola oil using my good stainless steel pan. Served it with store-bought macaroni salad, potato salad and cole slaw. Turned out quite delicious.

We went to our favorite restaurant after church for their Easter Platter. Two eggs, toast, home fries, pierogi, slice of ham, kielbasa, placek and fruit salad. Very tasty, or as they say in Polish "bardzo smaczne". The restaurant has a Greek theme, but the owner's mother is Polish and his father is Lebanese. Great food and service.

The Greek restaurant we had brunch at yesterday was having a contest for guessing how many jelly beans were in a jar. My MIL was called and told she won, so we took them over there to get their gift basket and had lunch there. My wife's mom and dad each had a reuben sandwich and chips; my wife had a bowl of stuffed banana pepper soup and a wedge salad (wedge of lettuce, blue cheese, bacon tomatoes, onions, and balsamic) and I had the meat loaf dinner with gravy and mashed potatoes. Very, very delicious meal.

DavEdsel, what does it mean to have a soup made of "stuffed" peppers????

Easter a.m., after 4:30 a.m. vigil (get there at 3:30 to get a good seat) I made my FIRST really good scrambled eggs. I'm almost 68... I melted the butter at medium and then put four eggs gently mixed in the regular castiron pan. Added some heavy cream, about 1/4 cup grated Cabots Seriously Sharp cheese and salt. I forgot about them until the bottom layer had cooked, while the top was still liquid. I then began mixing as one does with scrambled eggs. Pretty soon they were done. Moist, but no runny bits. Delicious.

Today, baked eggs with creme fraiche, prosciutto and asparagus. Very tasty, but not worth the trouble. Recipe from the Boston Globe.

The reason for eggs two days in a row is the Globe article on eggs from free range chickens. They mentioned a store near us, so I got some and did a taste test with boiled eggs on Saturday (gave some to neighbors who said they were going on their Passover plates.) We couldn't detect any difference between free range and Star's cage free. Will try again in the summer when there's something good to eat on the range!

LAS14, you asked "DavEdsel, what does it mean to have a soup made of "stuffed" peppers????"

Stuffed banana peppers (mildly spicy and a pale green in color) are usually filled with cream cheese. The soup (I had a few spoonfuls) was very creamy with small pieces of banana pepper. It tasted just like banana peppers filled with cream cheese. Very creamy, with a bit of a spicy kick. Delicious.

You would not believe the asparagas I picked from my garden last night! There were a couple of "normal" sized stalks - but they weren't as good as these giants!

Lunch salad today contains mache and chives, asparagus, fennel, sorrel and baby argula from my garden. My co-workers call this "mowing the lawn".

Lunch is collard and kale greens with onions, cherry tomatoes and sausage over polenta.

Chicken Scarpiello, using up the last of the frozen bell and hot peppers from last summer. The recipe called for serving it over Orzo, but I didn't have any, so I used Pollo Mexicano. Went well with the spicy chicken.

One of my fav breakfast casseroles is to layer grits, crumbled sausage, scrambled eggs then sprinkle with cheese.

After signing final documents for selling my dad's mobile home and handing over the keys (dad has Alzheimer's and is in an assisted living facility now), we went out to lunch at a restaurant in the Southern Tier of WNY called "Aunt Millie's". The food is very good, but they are famous for their pastries. We brought home Napoleans that were about a foot around, cream puffs with chocolate topping that were just as big, and 'brownie towers' that were about 6 inches square - two brownies with a peanut butter cream filling and fudge frosting. These deserts should last us at least 5 days. ☺

Thanks for the recipe, Jen. I agree with you and Marilyn on the tomatoes.

Debi, that breakfast casserole does spund good, even for the only Southerner in the world that doesn't care for grits. LOL. If I'm going to eat carbs, they have to be really worth it. :). But buried in that casserole, I'd be ok with them.

Dave, those sound sinfully wonderful, along with Victor's Mom's stuffed artichokes. What was the stuffing, Victor? I love artichokes. ...and Lasagna, which is unlucky for me with my carb sensitivity.

Yesterday I had to go to my Aunts funeral, my Uncle's side of the family is Lebanese ...we had kibbi, grape leaves, and a few other dishes that I have no idea what they are called. Ever since I was a kid my Uncle Dan's sisters have been trying to fatten me up so they shove the lovely little homemade petit fours and pastries at me. Yesterday was no different. :-)

Chocolate cake with toasted coconut
baklava
mini eclairs
whoopie pies
date bars
raspberry bars
cheese cakes
carrot cake
pecan tarts
and many more that I couldn't possibly try!!

Back to childhood with tuna fish casserole and salad. 1/2 package elbow macaroni, one can Campbells Mushroom Soup (old fashioned kind, with all the salt and fat) and a 7 oz can of tuna. Bread crumbs on the top. So comforting!!

I usually have a can of spinach with vinegar on it, but son and daughter-in-law don't do cooked greens. Hence the salad.

flowajen: You asked about Mutter Paneer awhile back (sorry it took so long to reply, I've been busy). It is a Indian side dish with peas and lumps of a sort of cottage cheese that looks like tofu in a mildly spicy brown sauce. One website said it was the most often ordered dish in Indian Restaurants, but I'd never had it before.

Last night: Crab cakes with aioli sauce and sweet potatoes.

Mom was thinking we will get it catered ... but since it's Father's day going out will be out of the question.. so I offered to do it here.. now we have to get our butts in gear and really clean up the yard.. ugh!!!.. wasn't planning on something like this anytime soon.. been saying it for years..

I actually am picking over-wintered leeks that grew from seed of over-winter leeks. They don't have much white because I just let them grow "wild" - but they are free.
