I thought it might be fun to start a thread on what we are having, making or had for dinner.  Sometimes it is the best tuna steak you ever had, sometimes it's a can of soup.  But we all do it every night in some form or another.  Maybe we can give each other ideas on what to make, or bitch about what we had, or the fact that we did enjoy that grilled cheese with tomato soup. 

Every night my husband comes home and says "whats for dinner?"  no matter what I say he always says "sounds good!"  even if I say it's a 'fend for yourself night'. :)

There are a bunch of hospitals with tents in front of them.


The tents are essentially portable hospital emergency departments.

What they do with the tents by the hospitals is to augment (or replace if needed) the hospital's emergency department.

If they are away from a hospital, the tents become a stand alone emergency department.

Thank you MinusTwo, I live in Sweden and our national dish are meatballs with mushed potatoes, gravy cream sauce and lingonberry jam, sort of you can get at Ikea. My favourite Swedish dish is probably anything that contain Skagen röra which isa creamy salad that contains creme fraiche, shrimps, crabfish, onions and dill, s&p and a squeeze of lemon juice and the spawn of fish. You can serve itin backed potato, on a bread as an open sandwich or make a sandwich cake with it, several layers of bread with it in between and then you decorate it with lox, shrimps, sliced cucumber. Very tasty, but I enjoy all types of cuisine, love Chinese, Thai and Indian. I am good in cooking Persian recipes, as I said I like to cook. I liked your recent posts from your vacation with all meals you described.

Eric, I'm so appreciating your island reports and nature observations (!). I will ambivalently post a food pic or two for your viewing enjoyment while eating MREs. 😏

I learned from DDIL1 today that her colleague and team who were able to fly to PR with a full plane of supplies, have reached a place called Morovis, an outlying town where she reported that they were the first support people to show up with supplies at all. The photos she sent were pretty bleak. I can't quite imagine how people survive for this long with such destruction and with no drinking water available. I'm glad we were able to support her effort by easily ordering medical supplies from Amazon. Relief services in a new age! Eric, if you were not in PR, I imagine you'd be in Napa. When will these disasters end!

We spent most of the weekend at Newfound and enjoyed our neighborhood lobster fest, including steamers, really big lobsters, corn on cob, and king crab legs. Many folks took their crab legs home since they were fill....us included.....ours came all the way home to MA. So yesterday, before we headed downtown to see the Celtics' pre season game, DH shelled all the crabmeat (his first time doing this ever), and I used it to make what promised to be a delicious crabmeat salad (he put it on a roll with lettuce); I piled it on top of green leaf lettuce. Visual aid below:


Well, sadly, as I took my first bites, I noticed that it was loaded with grit.....sand to be exact! Yuk! DH is not at all fussy about such things, so he also ate mine and I made another salad, and topped it with a piece of leftover salmon I had in fridge. Next time I’ll clean the crab legs. At least one of us enjoyed that sweet crabmeat!

Tonight I made a chicken veggie stir fry, which we had with farro, a red leaf lettuce salad, and a Whole Foods baguette. I bought the chicken at Whole Foods today (had not checked it out since Amazon allegedly lowered prices), and have to say it was the most tender chicken I have had in a while. Their produce was a bit less expensive than usual, especially the organic items, but it still qualifies as “hole in your pocket” compared to our other local stores. Dinner visual below with farro hidden under stir fry....


Carole, I make my own horseradish salad dressing, and am happy to share recipe if you are interested. I have gotten to the point of practically never using bottled dressings anymore.

Minus, popcorn sounded like the perfect “meal” for that hour. ;) I think of Michelle when we choose popcorn!

Welcome Sherry! I grew up with Swedish families in my neighborhood sooo many years ago. I always enjoyed their Santa Lucia ceremony at Christmastime, and their cookies and pastries, more than any fish dishes. ;). My DDIL is Persian, so I am familiar with their foods, tho never remember the names of the dishes.

Having beautiful indian summer temps here now....and loving it

ChiSandy, you mean the one with shrimps and half of boiled egg? I can imagine you have somewhat adjusted menu in your Ikea cafeteria, but not necessarily. Skagen röra is more like a mix, like a tuna mix or American egg or chicken salad, so creamy but with seafood and as you mentioned with row, looks like this one in the picture. There is always a good reason to go to Ikea, even if I keep telling myself I do not need anything I always end up buying something as usual, and they just released a new catalogue.

Dinner today was marinated chicken drumsticks roasted in the oven with mashed potato and cucumber, tomato, onion, dill and parsley salad, some ecological oatmeal cookies and fruits like apple and plums.

Last night's dinner was a thrown-together version of Laurie's salsa chicken with brown rice, topped with sour cream and shredded "Mexican" cheese. I thawed two large chicken breasts and a carton of home-made Cuban black beans and dumped in the remainder of a pint of salsa bought in the farmers' market in MN.

Tonight's dinner will be sea scallops and fettucini in a garlicky butter/olive oil/lemon sauce. I may break the Italian rule against seafood and cheese and have some grated Italian cheese. Salad will be romaine and add ins.

Yes, Lacey, I would like the horseradish dressing recipe.

We associate with folks of Norwegian ancestry during the summers in MN. This summer we went to dinner at the home of a couple and were told in advance that the menu featured meatballs and gravy. I assumed the gravy was tomato sauce because the Italians we know here in south Louisiana (Sicilian background) call their tomato sauce gravy. The meatballs were in brown gravy and served with mashed potatoes. We were the only surprised diners! Everybody else expected mashed potatoes, which were very good.

Brown gravy is most often served on rice here in south Louisiana. We ate a lot of rice at my house and a lot of dark brown gravy made with a roux.

I went to Sam's today with three items on a list and spent $200. Now the freezer is stocked with meat.

Welcome, Cherry. DH and I went to Sweden years ago and enjoyed travelling around your country. Everyone spoke English and was very friendly. We took a charming boat tour on the Gota Canal. I don't remember much about the food we ate. We visited the Orrefors crystal factory and bought crystal that we still prize. We went to the little town where the Dalanar (Sp?) wooden horses are carved and bought one of those that we still display. There were also tours of a couple of famous pottery factories and purchases at them, but I can't pull the names out of my head.

On that same trip we travelled through Denmark and Norway and enjoyed the scenery and architecture and ambiance.

Glad you will be soon getting an R+R (not exactly, right?!) and can return home to see the family and get that important paper signed, Eric. Hard to imagine that you will be spared from providing more help in the future. Thanks again! I keep hoping to hear more reports from my DDIL’s colleague who is there now.

I just spent the evening clothes shopping at Frugal Fannies to cover outfits I need for two events at DH’s business school reunion this weekend. Clearly, not gaining any weight this summer could have prevented this trip!

So since I arrived home from shopping at 9PM, and DH was eating snack food (tortilla chips and hummus), since he didn’t eat much at his reunion cocktail reception, I broke out some cheese and crackers and red grapes, and that was dinner.

So my Horseradish Vinaigrette goes something like this:

Combine:

1-2 tablespoons white horseradish

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

2 teaspoons honey ( tho I sometimes use maple syrup since we have that on hand a lot)

2-4 Tablespoons white wine vinegar (or light balsamic, or pinot grigio vinegar, or champagne vinegar) I vary it.

Dash salt (I often omit)

1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper

Once mixed well, while still whisking, add:

1/4 to 1/2 cup evoo

Feel free to adjust ingredients to your taste preference. My dressings are pretty loose as far as ingredient amounts. Also, I also often add some dried tarragon to add extra interest.

I often triple this and store it in a bottle in refridge, so it’s handy to use since it is my go to fave dressing. It just needs to come out of refridge as you start making salad so the evoo has time to liquify

That’s it!

Better go hang up my purchases!
