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'. :)

Have friends in Port St. Joe. Last I heard from them was yesterday morning when the winds were starting to kick up and water was coming up in a canal. Praying they are safe.

On the dinner front, it’s soup and sandwich tonight. Still have a bit of the stomach bug I woke up with yesterday.

Mommy - sorry about your stomach bug. Hope it doesn't linger.

I went to Costco today and their rotisserie chickens are the best - huge & plump & nicely seasoned. So dinner was nibbling chicken from the wings and the leg bones and eating small pieces as I stripped the bird. I'll have chicken again tomorrow and package the rest for the freezer. Also finished off the leftover yellow squash w/onion & garlic.

Yesterday I baked one of the San Francisco Boudin Sourdough rounds that I'd taken from the freezer. They pre-bake the bread so you only have to finish it for 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees. Dinner yesterday was 3 pieces of fresh bread with lots of butter. YUM.

Eric - hope things are OK wherever you are.

Hoping for mercy on the part of Michael for those in its path.

Last night Bob came home from Cooper's Hawk Winery, where a drug rep took his office staff to dinner. He stuffed himself on the appetizers and brought home two entrees: parmesan-crusted beef tenderloin medaiiions with asparagus, and glazed salmon with Southwest slaw (and scalloped potatoes with both). Had the salmon and half the slaw last night. He also brought home two portions of dark chocolate cake with strawberries. I had half mine last night and the other half an hour ago. Headed out to Target to pick up some last-minute stuff before packing tomorrow for our trip Saturday. Will find out how late Bob will be working tonight, and whether he'll have had dinner, before I decide whether to eat the medallions or save them for him.

Belated Happy Birthday, Special! And have a wonderful trip! I recall how much you enjoy those trips back to CA.

Since returning home from the lake, I have had zero motivation to food shop or cook...so have been squeaking by with anything in the fridge. Planned to shop yesterday, but torrential rains were a deterrent (not that I needed one). So I had a mini crisis at dinner prep time...ultimately foraged through the freezer and found three meatballs I made last year for just this type of night. Amazingly they had no freezer burn, so I nuke defrosted them, heated them up in a Rao’s tomato basil sauce, mixed with some leftover farfalle noodles I had frozen a few weeks ago and fresh mozzarella, and called it a casserole! DH never even knew what a scofflaw I was. Had he been out, I would have loved to do a peanut butter and fruit dinner! But glad those frozen meatballs surfaced. Minus, I envied your bread dinner! I always think of your son’s thoughtful gift when I read about your freezer treasures.

Tonight we are going to visit my friend (the one we visit at her house on the Vineyard) who just sold her localhouse and moved to an apartment. We’ll either take her out to dinner or have take-out at her place. And tomorrow I’d better get to the food store! Just seem to have lost interest in food prep of late.

Hoping for good news on the biopsy, Bedo.

Looking forward to homemade pizza tonight. The dough for two crusts is in the refrigerator. I used 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour, 2 cups of unbleached all purpose, 1 packet of pizza yeast, 1 tsp salt, 1 T. honey and 1 T. olive oil. Oh, and 1 1/2 cups warm water. This is Mary Ann Esposito's recipe. I would have used white whole wheat instead of the all purpose but there was none at my Winn Dixie. Its offering of flour indicates that it's not an important ingredient for WD customers.

I made turkey Italian sausage this afternoon and and pre-cooked it. Also cooked fresh sliced mushrooms in butter. Another topping will be Kalamata olives. Yum. Yum. I will probably make a romaine salad as a side. Or maybe not.

Today was a gorgeous day, starting out in the 50's and ending up in the 70's. If only we had months of this same weather.

Dinner was bagged Asian salad mix with avocado & chicken added. Meals will be more hit & miss than usual. My SIL has been in ICU since Sunday. Based on intuition - I drove down to see her this morning even though she is now sedated and likely didn't know I was there. Her husband & children decided this afternoon after I left to transition to Hospice & pull the trach tube. She will not be able to breathe with out the machine, and hospice is estimating about two days.

Oh, Minus, I am so sad for you. Losing a “chosen”sister has to be so painful. Sending hugs to you.

And hugs to you, too, Illimae. I always remember the words of our lovely vet shared with me when I was having our first mini schnauzer put down, that for as many times that she has had to say good bye to her animals over the years, it never gets easier. They are a big part of the fabric of our families. Cute pooch! Hope your trip to the cabin feels comforting.

Yes, Eric, I imagine you are wildly busy. Sending spirited energy your way.

Carole, your pizza sounds delicious!! And I'm impressed that you make your own turkey sausage. I saw some delicious sounding pizza choices on the menu at our friend's neighborhood Italian restaurant tonight, but resisted the pull and had a shaved brussells sprouts salad with chicken added. Feeling deprivedly virtuous! Fortunately, my friend's daughter joined us for dinner so I was busy enjoying catching up with her and paid less attention to our food

My pizza was too good for my own good. I pigged out.

Lacey, several years ago I purchased half a pig from a MN farmer. Among the cuts of pork were quite a few packages of ground pork. I looked up home-made Italian sausage and learned that it was a simple matter of adding spices and seasoning. Fennel, red pepper flakes (to taste), onion and garlic powder, s & p. So easy. Now I use ground turkey with low fat content because of my weight control issues.

Michael was a monster. The devastation is terrible.

Carole, I too make my own turkey sausage! The recipe I found calls for red, white, and black pepper -- way too peppery for the palates in my house. I'm still tweaking it a bit but add salt, black pepper, sage, fennel seed, garlic powder, ground cloves, nutmeg & allspice (just a little bit of each of the last three). We like this sausage with scrambled eggs and on our homemade pizza. Have also used it in recipes that call for crumbled crisp bacon. Glad to know someone else is doing this...

We're doing two 12-1/2 hour shifts a day, 7 days a week, so food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) has been pizza, cookies, coffee and donuts.

(((Ilimae))). Though 14 is an amazing run for a bulldog (even a Frenchie), it's always too soon to lose a furbaby.

Been offline the past two days here in the western Berkshires. Fall color is near-peak (will take pix tomorrow, rain permitting). We're in a timeshare condo, so we have to supply our own food. Last night we went to Williamstown and the 6 House Pub. (In an 18th century barn). It was prime rib night and they had only 2 pieces left, both end cuts. Normally I insist on mid-rare but we'd travelled all day and could have eaten the furniture. The outside was salty but the thickest part was a perfect medium—the end medium-well. Each portion was the size of a calf. Needless to say, we brought back leftovers. And they gave us a first-floor unit with full kitchen—only thing missing was a teakettle, which we got at Target for $9. Today we drove down to the Berkshire Mall in Pittsfield to see “A Star is Born,” which was wonderful, but the mall was depressing—a ghost town with only 1/3 of the shops occupied (only 3 stalls in a 10-space food court and one was closed today) and most of the rest shuttered on Sunday. At least Target was open, where we got some rudimentary staples for the fridge, (No breakfast buffet, no eatery on-premises). We stopped at the package store en route to dinner and home-away-from-home, just as it was closing.

The only open eatery was a tavern in Lanesborough—and it was far better than we expected. So-so salad bar, but fresh & adequate. Bob had a surprisingly authentic shrimp etouffee (good dark roux, albeit none too spicy—this is New England) and I had broiled sea scallops in a garlic “nage” (spoon & bread provided). I asked for double veggies in lieu of spuds or rice, and the veg was an entire quartered roasted acorn squash. Between that, some asparagus from Target, half a baked potato and half of one leftover prime rib portion (each leftover portion can feed two), tomorrow night’s dinner is set. Had to buy salt, pepper & olive oil—gotta remember next time to pack some, along with Panola sauce. I have a bunch of tiny bottles of Spanish & Italian olive oil & balsamic I swiped from business class on Iberia & Alitalia. Should’ve packed them

Sandy, it's always a challenge to know what to bring for a time share stay. Years ago I used to bring half my kitchen to our summer TS in P-town b/c I needed to do some cooking since the kids were little and eating every meal out was expensive and not very relaxing. ;/ I had all sorts of small bottles and containers of condiments, oils, sugar, etc. prepped to bring every year. Now I bring practically nothing but snacks for the beach and some yogurt for breakfast since we do eat out daily. What a welcome routine change! And Provincetown has such a nice variety of restaurants. Parts of western MA are pretty depressed like you saw, but if you are not too far from the Lenox area there are some very nice restaurants there. And I sure envy your peak foliage viewing! Our trip to the lake Columbus weekend was just a week too early for gorgeous bright color. It was just starting. Please do post pix!

Carole, I'd forgotten about your half pig purchase! I'm curious now about trying to make my own turkey sausage...are they patties or encased? I rarely use ground turkey tho. The color and texture of it kind of bother me, (sensory aversion, I suppose)so I'd have to get over that! If I made a nice sausage, I suppose I could add that to my turkey stuffing, instead of my usual purchased pork sausage, so DS2 could partake. He doesn't eat mammals, and I noticed last Thanksgiving, his wife made her stuffing with turkey sausage.

Meals....I may have gotten over my resistence to meal prep this weekend, which feels good. And we are back to healthful eating. Yay!

I'm feeling motivated to make a shaved brussells sprout salad after the one I had last Friday. So I have tons of them in the refridge awaiting.

We had haddock from Traders last night, which was inexplicably fresh tasting (if a bit on the wet side) coming all the way from Norway! I'd never bought fish from them before, but the price was way more reasonable than any fish at our regular supermarkets.

Tonight we had some leftover chicken, a salad with balsamic dressing and the absolute last ears of corn from the farmer's market. They are clearly moving into the “cow corn" category. I also made DH a piping hot bowl of Alessi chicken soup to which I added some chicken bone broth for more protein. He has a very bad URI which is odd for him, so I'm doing the grandma “cures thru food" choices as much as possible. But tomorrow I hope he calls the doc as his cough is awful.

Also tomorrow we have our first Celtics' game, so will probably have my salmon over sauteed veggies meal before the game. Will probably see part of the Red Sox game during dinner...so many sports teams here, so little time! HaHa.

Today I had a clear mammogram for which I am truly grateful!

Eric, I wish we were all closer and could bring you some meal variety. Much as I love pizza, I think I would start to dislike it if it were the only constant repetitive meal option. Carry on....folks in your role are so important to that population who lost so much.

I first tried ground turkey because of WW influences. I was hesitant because I'm not a turkey fan. It's such a bland taste, and I have never found a deli turkey for sandwiches that I like. To my surprise ground turkey lends itself to tasty cooking and serves well as an alternative to ground beef. On the current WW program, it's a zero point food, which also encourages me to choose it over beef or pork. LOL, Lacey, on not liking its appearance. Google Italian sausage recipes and you'll find one with seasonings that sound good to you.

Yesterday I played golf at Carter Plantation in Springfield with two women golfing friends. One now lives at Carter, and her husband, a Cajun, loves to cook. He gifted me and Linda, the third golfer, a container of shrimp and pasta out of their freezer, which is loaded with his cooking. DH and I had the shrimp and pasta for dinner, and it was delicious. Rixby cooks with a lot of seasoning. I had to add a little milk for the right consistency since the pasta soaks up the sauce. I was surprised to discover that pasta freezes.

My big food story for yesterday is lunch at Carter Plantation. The small restaurant is a nice room, always a plus. It was very hot and humid yesterday, and I had sweated buckets out on the course. Even rode out the last few holes. I decided to splurge and ordered a burger and sweet potato fries. The burger was wonderful. I enjoyed it to the last bite, feeling rewarded for my endurance of the golf round under such uncomfortable conditions.

If it weren't for health considerations, I might just eat whatever I wanted to eat and waddle around. And buy a bigger size clothes every few years. NO, NO, NO.

IliaMae, sorry about your pooch. My daughter has an english bull-dog that she got at a rescue. Dexter is so sweet. He is only around 2 and he is such a ham. He is always the center of attention. I will post a photo at the end of this post.

Eric, hope you get a better meal soon. Thanks for helping all of those poor people down there. I am sure they are scared to death.

Anyway, tonight is eggplant parm with linguini and salad. I have some nice shiraz and tonight I will indulge in a glass. It has been a bummer of a day.

Ok, wanted to say hello and leave Iliamae a photo of my grand-dog Dexter. See you all soon!
