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'. :)

Did something really bad today. Went to Cheesecake factory. Ate. Yes, finished with cheesecake. All because the ultrasound for the lump was "unremarkable" so treated myself to it. Was a very bad day yesterday, onc found lump, DFIL passed. So relieved today.
Much love to all.

Moon, why is cheesecake bad?  Is it possible to get enough cheesecake?

Welcome 2nd_time... Are you sure you haven't been spying in our house? All you describe is so familiar.... :-)



It's spring here in Arizona, but probably would seem like summer to anyone else...mid 90F temperatures today.  The evenings are beautiful (mid 80F range), so we grilled hamburgers and ate on the back porch.  Unfortunately the corn isn't ready here yet.  In about 6 more weeks, the local "corn stands" will be brimming with corn that was picked earlier in the day.  I can't wait!

Hi Eric,
I think anyone with growing teens goes through these things. Just another stage. My new easy fav dish is chicken tikka masala, rice and Indian-style veggies, thanks to Pinterest. My parents are visiting next week, which is cool, but Dad is diabetic so have to plan meals carefully.

Your weather sounds wonderful! Who says it doesn't rain in California? Sprinkled this morning in OC (enough to use the wipers for a while). Brightened up by afternoon, and somewhat humid.

Can hardly wait for the corn stands to open here. Just strawberry stands (and more are disappearing yearly).

Have a great weekend everyone!

OC and Strawberries...southern Orange County?????

As a kid, when my parents would go to Camp Pendelton, we'd stop at one (or more) of the strawberry stands so my mom could get fresh strawberries.  I was in that area a couple of years ago and most of the Strawberry "patches" had been replaced by blacktop, cement and houses.

Yup, that's the popularity of the "OC" (never heard that called that before when I was growing up there). Most strawberry patches are gone now, hard to find them any more. Actually, found a couple in northern OC.  

We used to camp in the Trabucco Canyon area when I was a teen -- kind of where the news story has been of late.

Hello everyone and welcome to 2nd time. We were in NC for a short time looking at homes for retirement...busy time to say the least! I seemed to have developed a slight cold while there and have been coughing ever since...really scaring me...I cough up a lung I swear. Well, I went to my mom's to paint her living room and dining room for her and she heard me coughing and said "here, try one of my allegra" so I did and and never coughed the rest of the day!  I have never had allergies...and I know they say its going to be a bad year, but really? we still have snow! Going to buy some Allegra.

Having a pizza party tonight, to watch the SU game!  Go 'cuse'

Sounds like everyone is doing well and getting ready for some outdoor time.  Oh What to do with the bunny when I plant my garden?

Carrie, welcome back. I feel your pain about the cough. I'm allergic to mold, so I have it all year round. In addition to claritin, I also take two different nasal sprays and a decongestant. Sometimes I wonder if I'm not developing asthma.

2nd, tikka masala is one of my faves too. Last nights corn was not local by any means. Won't get that till summer. It wasn't that great, more like a promise of things to come :-)

Monica, cheesecake seems like the perfect treat after a week like yours. Glad your lump turned out to be nothing.

Monica, great news on the "unremarkable" finding!  Every now and then we have to indulge and celebrate.

Carrie, did you see anything promising in retirement homes? 

This morning I have time to make some artisan bread.  The biga (starter) is in the refrigerator.

Lacey, I'm still using my old blender for the healthy smoothies.  I have enough Capital One rewards points to buy a Vitamix but haven't sprung for it yet.  The old blender does pretty well now that I've learned the best procedure.  The chia seeds are supposed to keep me from getting hungry but my digestive system must be super efficient.  The only food that keeps me satisfied a little longer is fat, which is why peanut butter on a slice of toast is one of my breakfast choices. 

It amuses me that so many Americans in all sections of the country are crazy about corn!  Gift of the native Americans.  I grew corn in my garden some years ago when I had a big garden.  The best time to eat corn is as soon as possible after it's picked off the stalk.  I used to eat it raw.  Shuck an ear and take a big bite!  DH likes his corn best cut off the cob. 

Sunny today with high temp. in the 70's.  Good day for the cookout/potluck picnic.  All the trees except the pecan trees are in full leaf, that pretty spring shade of green.  The pecan trees are the last to leaf out.

White corn raw. Yum!  Dinner has been food from India Restaurant delivered from Foodler 3 times this week.  I can't help it. I'm addicted.

Bobo, I think you had your surgery yesterday.  Now, sit!  Lie down!  Stay!  Good Bobo.  Gooooood Giiiirrrlll!  That's a Good Bobo.  SO please take good care of her, I know you will.  My thoughts are with you and I am praying for healing for you.

Carol, I envy you, we have no leaves on anything.

Good to hear from you bedo. Hope bobo's surgery went well.

Tonight is enchiladas verdes with Spanish rice and refried black beans. I also have a ripe avocado that I'll dress with some lime juice and salt just for me. DH doesn't do avocados (lucky me!)
