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'. :)

Think I may defrost a large heritage pork chop Monday night (when it'll be hard to find a place that delivers). We should still have leftovers from tomorrow Sunday night. I still have a bumper crop of rosemary (very hardy, as is the mint and even some thyme). The basil, OTOH, is a distant memory.

Today was spent getting the stuff I need to fix the part of the sprinkler system that waters the plants. A pipe (actually plastic tubing) that only has water in it when the plants are being watered, developed a leak and the tubing was, after it was installed, covered over with a cement slab...so there is no way to fix the leak without cutting a hole in the concrete. I'm having to redesign the system and do a re-pipe with the stuff taking different routes in the yard.. At least it's outdoors and doesn't affect the indoor plumbing, so there is no rush to completing it other than I want to get it done so I can go off and do other things.

I put a new water heater in a few months ago when it was convenient. The old one was working fine but was 16 years old with a 10 year "won't leak" warrantee. Now, I shouldn't have to worry about it for awhile.


JHL. I did a double take when I saw your post. My late father's initials are (were?) JHL.

Chi, 50 years life for galvanized pipes is normal. They'll probably replace it with PEX pipe, which is much easier to deal with than rigid copper or galvanized. PEX used to have a problem with degrading when carrying chlorinated water, but that "kink" has been worked out.


As for Thanksgiving, DD is going to spend it at her boyfriend's parents' house. It is still not easy for MIL to get around and she wants to wait a bit for the celebration, so we will have a late Thanksgiving. For the actual Thanksgiving day, Sharon and I will likely take the dogs and go camping out in the "boondocks" where distances between people of different families are measured in miles.


Carole, I, too, am one of the "when it's my time, it's my time", but that doesn't mean I will work to hasten the inevitable "it's my time" by being careless! :-) I do go visit friends but they are also careful as well.


Sharon cooked BBQ chicken and rice tonight. I'm baking more sourdough bread.


Edited to add...

It appears my sourdough starter is quite "happy". Now that I'm baking a couple of times per week, the starter will get the bread to rise just as fast as commercial yeast. I put the dough into the bread pans for the 2nd rise and it had doubled in volume in about an hour. It used to take about 4 hours to double the volume. Even though the rise time is fast, the bread still has a quite a distinctive sourdough taste.

Things that were new & weird (then) like asparagus or Brussels sprouts - we were only served & required to eat one bite to taste it. Fortunately my Mother didn't like & never cooked liver.

Will be making brunch in a few minutes - Latkes, shroom & cheese omelet, chopped avocado, bacon, large spoonful of baked beans (a British thing). Later on, salmon salad (canned salmon w/mayo), capers, chopped tomato & cucumber. Ok - time to get cooking!

When I would come into the house after sifting gravel, the dust on my clothes would "follow me" inside and the tile floors felt like I had spilled talcum powder on them.

So, today, we decided to clean the house. It's sort of like the joke, "If it moves, salute. If it doesn't move, paint it.". All the furniture has been moved and every bit of floor has been vacuumed and mopped. The floors feel a lot less slippery. While waiting for the floors to dry, we've been dusting. Fortunately the vacuum cleaner has a bag designed to pick up, and more importantly, hold, plaster dust, so we should "gain" on the dust--if only for a few days.

I'm still not done with the dirty work as I'm still working on landscaping, so this will likely need it again....it was just driving us crazy....


Dinner tonight is going to be the left over rice and BBQ chicken.


I remember being given brussels sprouts for dinner and not liking them. Mom decided I'd sit at the table until I ate them. They went to bed and I was still at the table. :-)

So long as you don't put grapefruit or bitter/Seville orange into your cranberry sauce, it shouldn't interfere with letrozole. What's more, cranberries enhance the effect of letrozole. (Unlike swigging grapefruit juice with an angiotensin-receptor-blocker antihypertensive, which makes the drug so much stronger that it can quickly cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure).

Saturday night we had dinner with another couple at Rip's on the Lake in Mandeville. I had made a reservation for a table on the balcony. We enjoyed the social interaction and the meal was excellent. But the tables were placed too close together, even though it was outdoors. I doubt we will go there again during Covid season.

I had a cup of crab brie soup which had lumps of crabmeat in the rich yummy soup base. Every mouthful was wonderful. For my main dish I had the butter lettuce wedge salad with the house blue cheese dressing and bacon crumbles. With the addition of a few fried oysters. Again every bite was delicious. DH had the shrimp remoulade salad for his main dish and he also had the crab brie soup.

We were vendors yesterday at the Madisonville Made Market. A young Asian woman was serving a couple of vegan food selections at her booth. For my lunch I bought a meal of her Chinese dumplings. The dumplings were tasty with a thin sauce she provided. DH bought a burger and fries meal from another food vendor. The burger was stuffed with brie and he said it was good. The fries were frozen crinkles.

For dinner I warmed up leftover chicken and leftover pork tenderloin slices with a vinegary barbecue sauce and made a boxed Cracker Barrel mac and cheese.

No thoughts on dinner.

reader - I love spaghetti squash, and treat it like pasta. I usually halve the squash and remove the seeds, oil the inside and salt and pepper, then place cut side down on a baking sheet lined with foil and bake 40 mins at 400 F. It has been foolproof - I have put meat sauce over, or also cooked and crumbled hot Italian sausage with sauteed onion and garlic and parm sprinkled over.

I just put a small pork shoulder that I rubbed with spices in the crock pot with onion and pineapple at the bottom. Planning to make al pastor style soft tacos, topped with shredded cabbage, a squeeze of lime juice, sliced avocado, and crumbled goat cheese. Probably make a Spanish rice side.

What is everyone doing for a pared down Thanksgiving? I got two small turkey breasts and a half spiral ham, will do traditional dressing and pan gravy, twice baked sweet potatoes with pecans, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole (for DD - she loves it), Brussels with roasted with diced bacon, onion, and drizzled with aged balsamic, and homemade cranberry sauce. DD is making the corn casserole and an appetizer of artichoke dip in her Traeger grill and then bringing it over. Also, making an apple pie - none of us are pumpkin pie fans, although last year I made pumpkin bars using the Sally's Baking Addiction recipe - so, so good! All of that food is for three people, lol!

Greetings all! Though I haven’t posted in a while I’ve been following everyone’s posts. We’ve been very busy painting and switching out fixtures, coming back to the apartment exhausted and too tired to be very creative about dinner. Tonight was a grilled ham steak, scalloped potatoes and creamed spinach.

We’ve decided not to get together with the kids for thanksgiving. All of us agreed it was for the best given the surge of COVID-19 in our area. We’re trying to hold on for the vaccine! I snagged a10 pound turkey that I’ll spatchcock and cook along with stuffing (from a box), gravy, baked corn and cranberry chutney. I was lucky to find 6” pies from a local bakery and bought a pumpkin and pecan. I’ll make a mascarpone/whipped cream topping for the pumpkin and we’ll call it dinner. We’ll FaceTime the kids and the rest of the family we normally celebrate with.

The new appliances have been installed in the new place and I’d love to cook on the new stove but until we move in two weeks, it would be too much trouble to drag everything over there. I think I can manage the pared down menu in the tiny kitchen.

If I don’t manage to post again for a while I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving however small your celebration.

Happy Birthday, Mommyof2!

Last night's dinner was catfish fillets breaded with seasoned cornmeal and cooked in a 425 degree oven. A WW recipe that I've used many times. Sides were creamed spinach and tossed romaine salad.

Tonight will be Oysters Mosca. I couldn't resist buying another pint of Gulf oysters at $12.99, a Thanksgiving special at Rouse's Supermarkets. DH will pick up a loaf of French bread, a must with this meal.

Our Thanksgiving dinner for two will be chicken and dumplings. I am happy not to be travelling this holiday.

We are back in Phase Two which enrages many in this red state.

We’ll be cooking at the cabin, hopefully all goes as planned. No oven, so we’re gonna try the turkey ins rotisserie, I’ll use electric burners for mashed potatoes and stuffing, gonna mix up the green bean casserole and try to finish it in the rotisserie and DH added his creamy Brussels sprouts to the menu. Fingers crossed the turkey fits into the rotisserie, back up plan would be to cook it at a neighbors down the mountain and drive it back up.
