    I finally got to have one of my favourite bacon and blue cheese stuffed burgers from Stella's tonight. They're an ungodly amount of food, so now I don't have to eat again until dinner tomorrow.

      Today has been one of those cold, wet, miserable days
      so tonight for dinner it is a favorite that my mom used to create.
       
      Roasted Chicken & Dressing
       
      I used 4 thighs, mixed a can of cream of chicken & mushroom soup with the dressing mix and covered the chicken in a 9" baking dish, into the oven @ 350 degrees.
       
      Came out piping hot and the whole house smells, and wonderfully warm and filling.
       
      I called mom to tell her thank you

        lleechef's roasting a chicken, and we'll be having it with butternut squash. I think I'll have cider with dinner.

          Dinner break tonight found me at yet another bar around the corner from our arena. They've got a decent Monte Cristo, so I had one along with their addictive cheddar-stuffed soft pretzel nuggets with hot honey mustard dipping sauce.

            Well, I was feeling a little sad that I didn't get to join the NY food tour yesterday. My husband has been having a lot of tests lately to see why he is having spells of extreme dizziness. Yesterday he had a MRA/MRI. He said it conjured up feelings of "No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!" (Monty Python reference) Everything keeps coming back as normal! One of the stops I was looking forward to was Vanessa's dumplings. Billyboy has reported on it and it sounds like a delicious place!
            So I came up with my own recipe for pork and scallion "undumplings" since my husband needs low carb. I made pork and scallion meatballs with stir fried vegetables for him and vegetable lo mien for those who wanted it. The meatballs were outstanding, if I do say so myself!

              How did Lisa prepare the squash? Lately my favorite has been cubed, tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper, fresh thyme or sage and roasted in the oven.

                felix, that really sounds so delicious! I just checked out their menu, looks good. Mmmm... low carb Monte Cristo. I have to think about that one.

                    I cut it in half and scoop out the seeds.  Then I put it cut side down in a Pyrex dish, add about 1/2" water, foil and bake at 350 for about 1/2 hour.......I check the fleshy part to make sure it's done.  Then I flip it over and put maple syrup or brown sugar and butter in the cavity....I brush some on the fleshy part too.....and roast at 400 for about another 20 minutes.  I always prefer "savory" to "sweet" but this is one of those times that the sweet pairs well with the squash.  I make acorn squash the same way.

                      I made some of Paul's soon to be infamous chili using:
                      1:  Two pounds of ground beef
                      2:  two whole chopped onions
                      3:  Two sliced jalapeno
                      4: Five cloves of pressed garlic
                      5: Two whole diced tomatoes
                      6: Two cans of tomato sauce
                      7: Carrol Shelby's chili mixture hot
                      8: One half cup masa Flour
                      I browned the beef, onions, peppers and garlic and added the remainder of ingredients to the crock pot.
                      Served with raw onions, sour cream and shredded cheddar and saltines and of course a dark beer

                            Agnes, you've done it AGAIN!   Those meatballs look incredible.  Hoping it won't gross you out, I've made a version of fried rice using spaghetti squash instead, and I bet you could make lo mein with that instead of noodles.

                              Agnes, they're one of my favourite places. The same people own several bars in town, mostly older ones they've renovated/restored to their former glory (I go to three of them on a regular basis for dinner breaks). And your undumplings look amazing!
                               
                              Today I actually got out of work at 5:00, so I got to cook for the first time in almost two weeks! Yet I was lazy, and it's cold, so I wanted comfort food. Kidney Bean Rabbit (don't ask me why it's called rabbit...Velveeta, kidney beans, and green pepper, melted in a double boiler and served over torn apart toast).

                                Sorry, Felix.  That does not sound like something I'd like.
                                 
                                What I want are those Agnes meatballs! 
                                 
                                I had slow cooker chuck roast finished with BBQ sauce, shredded and eaten on a hamburger bun.  Well I had one and a half.
                                 
                                I'll have some Rocky Road later.

                                  No need to be sorry, Mar...it's something from my childhood, kinda like some people still eat Spam out of nostalgia. I suspect we had it because we were poor, not because it's wonderful. Originally, it used government cheese, but I've upgraded it to Velveeta.

                                      Quite possibly the "rabbit" comes from someone hearing "rarebit" and thinking it to be "rabbit"

                                        East Carolina BBQ from Smith's Red & White in Dortches, NC, along with slaw and deviled egg potato salad from the Mars supermarket deli  - all washed down with a sugar-sweetened Cheerwine.  Can't wait.

                                          love2bake, I use spaghetti squash often. I always make it when we have spaghetti and meatballs! Delicious!

                                            I just finished making a huge pot of spaghetti....link Italian sausage (chunked), bulk Italian sausage, one flat can of anchovies, chopped onion, garlic, fresh and dry herbs, cherry tomatoes, one eggplant (rough chop), two cups fresh mushrooms,  four rough chopped sweet peppers, small can Cento tomato sauce. I like simmering it for a couple of hours, remove and set outside to cool and then reheat for later. Very meaty and hearty. The anchovies are just a touch I came up with...can't really distinctly taste them, but you say to yourself...."what a unique flavor".

                                                For dinner tonight lleechef made filet mignon with béarnaise sauce, roasted potato wedges, haricots verts, and a green salad with Boston lettuce, green onions and a dressing of oil and vinegar. The wine was a Coppola zinfandel.

                                                  Quite possibly the "rabbit" comes from someone hearing "rarebit" and thinking it to be "rabbit" 

                                                  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_rarebit

                                                  High degree of similarity in the ingredients and pronunciation

                                                  Well, that just makes no end of sense. Thank you!
                                                   
                                                  Tonight I did spinach lasagna rolls with roasted butternut squash (tossed with olive oil, lime juice, and rosemary).

                                                    Tonight it's hot Italian sausage along with broccoli rabe sautéed in olive oil with garlic, red pepper flakes and cannellini beans. Also known as beans and greens.

                                                        I wanted to make chili but when searching the freezer found a half loaf of cinnamon bread purchased in Solvang.

                                                            Went to Costco to pick up some stuff for Thanksgiving and just us and we were going to get a piece of pizza for dinner.

                                                            Then we saw it....  barbecued beef sandwich for $4.99.

                                                            That's big money for a Costco food line but it's what we got, mine with coleslaw and Sharon's without.

                                                            Deeeelicious!
