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'. :)

Nance - what a nice B-day treat. Special - sounds delicious. So you can have popcorn for dinner the next couple of nights. Moon - new patterns... The fireworks will be there next year. So glad the DH is well enough to be home.

Carole - how is it going with your Mother? When do you go back to the north country?

Dunch was a large spinach salad with shredded carrots, red onion, fresh mushrooms, campari tomatoes, slivered almonds, crumbled blue cheese and a blue cheese oil & vinegar dressing. I toasted the small ends of my leftover Rosemary Olive Oil bread to use as "pushers": Anybody else remember those? My Mother was a stickler for using a piece of bread as a pusher to get the small pieces of food onto your fork or spoon - NOT fingers. Even when I eat alone I have a hard time overcoming this etiquette rule. Besides, it's a way to sneak in bread.

Question - what is the best way you've all discovered to keep mushrooms fresh? I'm so tired of wasting at least half of each package that gets mushy or slimy.

minus - I usually use whole baby Bella mushrooms or white button. I also wanted to mention that sometimes when I have a bunch that I don't think I will use all at once I sauté the leftover ones and freeze them to add to marinara or to stews later.

Tonight I made a main dish salad of romaine, roasted chicken, peaches, pecans, goat cheese with a vinaigrette made from peach balsamic vinegar

Minus, I return to MN tomorrow. The two weeks passed fast. Yesterday I took a container of homemade chicken and dumplings for my mother and myself for lunch. She loves chicken and dumplings and enjoyed this treat. When I made dumplings for Mother's Day dinner, I made extra dough and froze it. So all I had to do was boil some chicken.

My dinner llast night was a slice of bread spread with mayo and topped with grated cheese and toasted. Also two delicious Bunny chocolate ice cream sandwich bars.

Carole - Have a safe trip.

It took me a LONG time to even begin to figure out how to cook for one. Now I separate most of my efforts into 3 portions as soon as they're done, two are frozen and one provides two meals. Or one goes to a neighbor who is home bound if it's one of the few things she'll eat. Even worse although I do sort of plan meals ahead and grocery shop once a week, it's so frustrating to buy 2 bananas, 2 peaches, 2 avocados, etc. and still have a problem with them going bad before I eat them. If I'm in a salad mood, I have to stay in that same mood for several days in a row or waste the lettuce. Even (horrors) the pre-bagged salad that I usually buy now. My closest decent grocery store is way too far to drive out every day for fresh food.

The biggest problem is balanced meals. When I try to prepare those, it's too much food at one sitting. So I'll eat meat one day & salad the next & pasta the next.

Last night's irresponsible supper was Jarlsberg cheese cut into match sticks and five Snapper's - mini pretzel's with carmel, dark chocolate and sea salt - served with a glass of Apothic "DARK" wine.

Today will be a container of the Bombay Curry Chicken I made last month & pulled out of the freezer.

The leftover Bombay Chicken was good again, but now I can't help but noticing the color. The neighbor I shared with last month said she had to close her eyes so she didn't think of baby poop.

The first of the Olathe Corn has just appeared. Just small shipment so far, but still, I will eat that until I'm sick for the next couple of weeks.

Illimae - GREAT news about the MRI. A fantastic reason to celebrate.

Went to my indie bookstore today to buy a copy of "Lost Restaurants of Houston". I was hoping it would have lots of fun memories - and yes it did. I couldn't put it down this afternoon. Also shared some recipes from restaurants that closed some time ago. Copies will be my Christmas gift to my Sis-in-law and my BFF.

Going to a wine class & tasting at Total Wine tomorrow evening with a friend. Wines from Down Under will be highlighted. She wants to eat at Beck's Prime before we go.

Yum...and congrats, Ilona!

Wed. night I was sitting down to coffee & a whoopie pie when Bob called. He was unable to valet-park at a restaurant where his side-employer's dinner was held (cars triple-parked, he was hemmed in at the curb with no valet in sight, cop threatened to ticket him--since the other cars were empty with flashers on and he was still in his car. Cop pushed one of the blocked cars--got in, put it in neutral, hopped out and nudged it with the cruiser's bumper--and ordered Bob to move along). One block east, Bob saw the spot in front of the valet podium at RPM Italian was open, with the valet there. So he parked and called me--I Ubered it down.

We started with carciofi fritti (Roman fried artichokes) & aioli; then spaghetti cacio e pepe; Bob had swordfish and I had halibut, and we shared broccolini. Dessert was house churned-to-order pistachio gelato with Italian wild strawberries. Our server looked at my cast-brace and asked about my injuries; I mentioned what a bummer it was because I'm a musician. She then asked if I was familiar with the local improv scene. I mentioned my son is artistic director of Big Shoulders Comedy, formerly pH Comedy Theater. She said "I loved pH--what's his name?" I answered "Gordy An..." and she said "no way--you're Gordy's mom?" Turns out they'd been teammates at i.o., and she's the pianist for their musical improv team. Not just that--a few years ago, she and the team were at my house to watch the finale of Breaking Bad!

Tonight was fridge/freezer-foraging (the last 3 Buffalo wings, Wed. night's leftover broccolini, and Tues. night's leftover elotes & mac & cheese).

Great news, Illimae! And a delicious-looking celebratory dinner.

SpecialK, I wish I would get an invitation like that! Sounds like a wonderful opportunity at just the right time.

I am back in northern MN, wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. The high didn't rise out of the 60's yesterday and it's cool again today. I will soon go to the gym for much-needed exercise. Once again I disappointed myself during my two weeks in Louisiana by not taking advantage of our Anytime Fitness membership, although there's a gym no more than a mile from my house. I just don't like it as well as the smaller, cleaner gym here, where you have to change into exercise shoes.

Dinner last night was chili made from scratch. I cooked a lb. of light kidney beans and a lb. of pinto beans and used half of the huge pot of cooked beans. The meat was lean ground beef. The chili was/is very tasty and the side was a salad with lots of goodies.

My patio tomato bush is bearing small tomatoes that have that home-grown flavor.

Are your DD and DH back home? Cooking for one is such a challenge. Or I should say - cooking for one "creatively" is a challenge. My dinner last night was 2 ears of corn on the cob w/butter & salt.

minus - lol! DH came home late on Thursday, DD doesn't return until Sunday evening after breaking down their booth and putting it on the pallet to be shipped to the next show. DH got to sit in the bombardier seat of the B29 at the airshow, his late father's seat - he was ecstatic and had himself a moment - they let NOBODY into that part of the plane. DD greased it with those old-timer B29 guys last year because I texted her photos of my FIL in the plane from WWII - they remembered her and when she introduced her daddy to them, and added in that he was a B52 guy....kismet!

You and I would be great eating partners - I have never been a 3 square meals a day person - I am a random grazer with an eclectic bent! When I cooked for my mom/dad and MIL/FIL toward the end of their lives when they needed help I made big pans of stuff, cooked it and then portioned into single servings and froze it - I think you mentioned doing the same. It was most expedient, and the last time I did this was when DH and his sibs were taking turns with my MIL - that way they could share something or each have something different. I went to the big box store and got the single serve containers and made probably 50 freezable single-ish portions of assorted stuff that was protein heavy to try to sustain my MIL. When I am alone I often do a salad with leftover chicken or steak added on top, but also enjoy just fruit or veggies, and POPCORN!

Had a BLT for brunch yesterday, but the green heirloom tomato, though ripening, still was very acidic. So for dinner, I sliced and dredged it in Italian bread crumbs and air-fried it (brushed a little olive oil atop it). Veggie & starch in one dish. Pan-seared Chilean salmon to go with it. Brunch today was a 3-egg (don't judge) omelet with spinach, 'shrooms & Swiss, plus a mini-croissant. (WF used to sell 6 "minis" in a bag, but they were the size of what passes for a regular-sized "cornetto" in Italy--our "full-size" croissants would be way too big there). But now WF sells a dozen true "minis:" the size you find at European hotel breakfast buffets.

The Atlanta training didn't have the "most best" eating, especially for dinner and typically lunch was "convention fast food"--chicken things, hamburgers, pizza.


The training was for my government job and it was 3 very busy days. The meetings/training went from 7:30am to 7pm each day with 1-1/2 hours for lunch/impromptu meetings/seeing folks we work with but rarely see.

The walk between the convention center and my hotel was completely inside, but still around 3/4 mile (1-1/4km) and after the long day, the walk felt good. However, by the time I got back to the hotel, waited for an elevator, got to my room changed from my uniform, got back downstairs and to a restaurant, it was 8pm and not much was open.

So, it was mostly CNN food court food and ordering food in the hotel bar. The last night, when all I had to do was make it to the airport shuttle the next morning, I ordered a "Goin' Coastal IPA" with my burger. The hamburger was OK and the ale was excellent. I'm disappointed that the ale isn't available out here.

I did run a couple of nights in the Olympic Park, but I was kind of embarrassed getting, dripping wet, into a crowded elevator. I asked about using the stairs (I was on the 12th floor) but I was told I wouldn't be able to get out of the stairwell..so I had to use the elevator.
