Carole, I am truly in restaurant heaven, as several of them are in easy (depending on weather) walking distance. Judy, glad you liked Brasserie C&C. We'd go tonight, except it's bitterly cold & windy and Bob is fighting a cold (at the stage where the nasal stuff is easing but before it hits his lungs). Colds were so rare these past 3 years that people tend to forget how awful they can feel, even compared to a Paxlovid-treated case of COVID. Despite the frigid temps, the tree pollen count is creeping up--and our cedar out front (part of the juniper family) is doing its best to let the wind spread its reddish pollen around. And the maple & buckeye across the street are starting to release their yellow-green yuck. Our garage is the saving grace, as we don't have to park anywhere outdoors long enough to have to clean anything other than road schmutz off our cars. But my ears & eyes are itching like crazy (wanna scratch one all the way through to the other).
Last night I made Bob his reuben: low-carb hi-fiber wholegrain bread, corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, homemade Russian dressing (mayo, Tabasco, grated horseradish, ketchup, Creole seasoning)--buttered & pan-grilled. I had mine sans bread & cheese, but with wholegrain Dijon mustard. Then half the leftover prime rib & green beans, with a little au jus and creamed horseradish that "came with" (as they say here in the Midwest).
His office nurse sent him home with a loaf of homemade soda bread--no contest, it blew the Costco one out of the water. She used a variety of raisins. I will restrain myself from hereon in, as my weigh-in is on the 28th and I have definitely gained.
Tonight, if he doesn't want to go out, I'll defrost some whitefish to nuke Greek-style in parchment with herbs & veggies, accompanied by sauteed broccolini. Will also slowly defrost & reheat last week's leftover half of my branzino with asparagus, and divvy up the two. Maybe use up the rest of the beef & green beans as a surf & turf.
