    I heated up a can of Tomato Soup with a can of Veggie Broth and have it as a drink along with a Crunchy Peanut Butter on Whole Wheat sandwich.

          Thanks!
           
          Tonight we're grazing in the booth while we work the hockey game. Little Smokies wrapped in bacon, two cheese balls with crackers, cherry and blueberry breads, BBQ meatballs, and probably some other stuff. It's a tradition for the six of us who work every year.

            I just finished part of my share of tonight's dinner:
             

             
            Chicken Marsala for three of us.
             
            I'll also be frying one chicken breast in Panko crumbs for he that doesn't like Marsala.  Jerk.
             
            Pasta will be prepared later along with a salad and vegetable.
             
            HAPPY NEW YEAR, Everyone!

                    Sirloin Tip steaks last night...
                     
                    I was supposed to drive up to Crescent City, but my back went out and I'm mostly back in my wheelchair...
                     
                    The steaks were fairly thin so they didn't take long to cook on the outdoor grill, which is good because I can't stand or walk very long when my back is like this...and I'm kinda "off my feed" and I ate 1 and put the other in the 'fridge...

                      Football is on - we had a mini cheeseball with flatbread crisps
                      The 7 Layer Mexican Dip with black bean Tostitos - which are very good
                      Broiled Shrimp with Cocktail and Tartar Sauce.
                      And a glass of very dry white wine.

                        Quick and easy "Italian Stroganoff" (I don't know IF there IS such a thing, I'm just trying to invent something fast):
                         
                        1 box of Fettuccini Alfredo + leftover bbq steak
                         
                        Boil noodles, reheat bbq steak after slicing thin, add powdered "sauce mix" and bbq beef, stir and serve...grated parmasean on top is an option, and toasted garlic bread is also a nice touch if y'all have some sourdough in the house...
                         
                        Nights like this I need something quick & dirty like this when I can stand for only a few minutes at a time...

                          Honey soy chicken served with roasted sweet potatoes and a bag salad with grape tomatoes added.

                            I am excited about dinner tonight.  Yesterday, my  grandaughter and I  decided  (after waching the Movie "Julia and Julie"  that we would make her beef bourguignon for dinner  tonight...........it killed me to pour that twenty dollar bottle of pinor noir into the pot!  (not to mention flaming the cognac!
                             
                            Anyway, it is now in the oven and we are hoping for a really great meal.

                                I made up something I've chosen to call Gingersnap Pork Chili because it's based on my Gingersnap Pork recipe. For having virtually no red pepper or hot sauce of any kind in it, it's got pretty darn tasty heat. It's the combination of vinegar, lemon juice and fresh grated ginger that does it. Shoot...now my mouth is watering. I may have to go grab a spoonful.

                                    Nope, not even red pepper flakes. And only 1 teaspoon of Tabasco, which it doesn't even really need, I just like it. I would normally serve it with cornbread, but carbs are verboten at my house unless they also come with more than 6g of fiber per serving.

                                      I noticed something in your recipe on Recipezazz, and I think you might like to correct it.  In the ingredient list you list garlic root instead of ginger root.
                                       
                                      By the way, that is a nice picture of you

                                          Dinner was Royal: 2 grilled Sir-loin tips...
                                           

                                           
                                          The "Cave Man diet" is a popular one these days, but they didn't have the advantage of a 50,000 BTU grill...

                                            What I had for dinner tonight was a gift from my mother's care giver.
                                             
                                            Her husband is from Jamaica and makes his own jerk sauce.
                                             
                                            She brought me a whole jerk chicken as well as a jar of his home made jerk sauce.

                                                  Dinner tonight will be a good old fashioned stuffed meat loaf  with mashed potatoes,  green beans and homemeade apple sauce.  Oh yes, grandaughter's homemade cresent rolls.........................She made three batches of them  last week and we froze them.  She is becoming quite the cook and baker.

                                                    I fixed some weird hamburgers that I blended with some sausage, onions, peppers, toasted bread, several spices including onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder.  I made cole slaw with horseradish, salad dressing, onions minced, black pepper, coffee creamer, lime juice and some sugar.  Very good.  I made some frites (french fries) that I sliced thick and long.  I fried them the Belgium way.  I fried them first at 325F, pulled them when they were barely tan and let them cool totally, turned the fryer up to 375F and fried to the color I desired.  Really good.
                                                     
                                                    I also put some beef hot links in the fryer and let them fry until they cracked.  Really good;
                                                     
                                                    I am taking Mamaw Smith a plate of all of the above when I have coffee with her at 4:00AM and have coffee and read the morning paper.  Incidentally, Mamaw Smith will be 90 in a few weeks.  She is still very active, works the garden and keeps my grandkids when they are out of school.

                                                      Paul, the double fry method for your fries IS superb, yet something most restaurants won't invest the time for (or don't know about)...and yer burgers sound fairly normal to me...what type beef hot links...???

                                                        Feeling better...thanks...
                                                         
                                                        I felt good enough to drive, and I needed some salsa verde therapy, so I had tacos in Willits (68 miles round trip) for a late 4:oo PM brunch...
                                                         
                                                        I know it sounds crazy, but I'm saving up my srength to go buy and haul a new 4.5 C.F. reefer (Frigidaire)...Santa Rosa is a 250 mile round trip journey, but I might have to go further...
                                                         
                                                        You see, ya feel better, then you go do stuff to throw your back out again, rest up...and repeat...not unlike Sysiphus...

                                                          Greymo, how was the Beef Bourguignon?
                                                           
                                                          I had heard that Corn Pops (once known as Sugar Pops) were being taken off the market so for dinner tonight I had a bowl with vanilla almond milk.
                                                           
                                                          I loved them as a kid.  Now, not so much.

                                                            Thank you for asking. It was a great success and  is a wonderful  " do it a day ahead dish". My son took some in to work the next day to share with a co-worker and this is part of an email that the co-worker sent to me:
                                                             
                                                            Kay,
                                                            Thank you for making that wonderfully flavored Beef Bourguignon. Art was kind enough to share this wonderful dish with me today. I am very appreciative of the time, care, and effort it took to develop this fine full-bodied dish. It was truly magnificent.
