Almost 70 yesterday, 30 today! Some comfort food seems due so I pulled out some sausages and going to simmer them in sauerkraut. Only difference?? Remember my partner is vegetarian, the sausages are tofu! Really, after simmering in the kraut, it tastes the same!

    I cooked for real! It was something of a challenge, and took about 87 years, but other than not being able to take anything out of the oven that requires two hands, I think I've figured it out. Crab-stuffed chicken breasts, broccoli in garlic cream sauce, and butter beans. Don't know what my obsession is with butter beans lately, but I've been wanting them almost daily.

        Dinner for me tonight was tri-tip and smashed sweet potatoes.  I had dinner at Woodranch.  It's a chain but I love their food.
         
        Felix, do those beans come out of a can?  Frozen?  Made from scratch?  I need a new carb in my life.

          They're canned. I buy the Meijer brand because they're cheap (regional store), but there's a better brand with bacon pieces in it. Reber? Something like that. I buy those when they're on sale.

            Thanks!  I'll have to try them.
             
            When I was a kid my mother made some sort of barbecued limas with a tomato sauce and onions.  They were wonderful but no one has the recipe.

                Yum, like Braciole.
                 
                Think I need to make some Pollo Trambino.

                    We split a monster salad from the Meijer deli...mixed greens, mixed berries and pecans, with raspberry-walnut vinaigrette.

                        Bulgoki (Korean beef) and steamed rice tonite!  I get the marinated meat at Trader Joes, and slice it thin.  Stir fry with julienned carrots and thinly sliced cabbage, and dinner in 20 minutes!

                          NJ/T, what would you like us to call you? 
                           
                          I love Bulgoki.  I've never purchased it at Trader Joe's... I'm guessing it's good?
                           
                          Do you wrap it in a lettuce leaf to eat it?

                            I have my real cast! It's amazing how much easier it is to function now! I made pot roast, complete with onions, potatoes and carrots. I'm already looking forward to a cold roast beef sandwich with chili sauce at midnight even though we got done eating maybe ten minutes ago.

                              That looks good and I don't even like pot roast.
                               
                              I like that you're already thinking about your next meal.
                               
                              I heated up the two individual casseroles of macaroni and cheese that I made along side the big casserole election night.
                               
                              Should have made more!

                                  Felix - I've noticed your writings about the cast and pain....I'm sorry for you.  One year ago Saturday, I broke my ankle in SO many places - they couldn't do surgery to install the titanium and set the bones for a week due to swelling.  I was so depressed, totally incapacitated for 8 weeks, non-weight bearing.  I hope yours insn't that bad, but my point was, I'm back to running with my Nigerian Dwarf Goat kids, and back to normal activity.

                                      I do!  They are Nigerian Dwarfs, two kids.  They will only get to be 18" tall.  Our little girl, MIST, and our boy, MOE.  Also have 5 chickens, each laying one egg per day.

                                        Thank you! I did it on purpose, though...there was so much arthritis and so many bone spurs in the main joint of my big toe we had to fuse the bones together. I'll be non-weight bearing until at least around mid-February. But now I wanna run around with goats! My sister used to have some, they were way too cool!
                                         
                                        Dinner tonight is leftover pot roast. I made enough for at least eight people, and there are only two of us.
                                         
                                        Edit:
                                        And again, I'm a liar! Totally forgot the microwave died the other day, and I refuse to fire up the oven for leftovers. So...tomato soup and tuna salad sandwiches. My sister is coming over tonight, hopefully I can enlist her to carry the microwave we inherited from my grandma upstairs.

                                                That does it... eggs for dinner.  Just not 5 of them.
                                                 
                                                Probably fried but maybe an omelet.

                                                  Almost 70 yesterday, 30 today! Some comfort food seems due so I pulled out some sausages and going to simmer them in sauerkraut. Only difference?? Remember my partner is vegetarian, the sausages are tofu! Really, after simmering in the kraut, it tastes the same!


                                                  The same as what? Tofu?..... Someones got you drinking the kool aid!

                                                   
                                                  Remember this is my 35 year partner, I have to be supportive and positive but seriously, with the spices and kraut, the taste is fine. We also use tofu crumble "meat" to make stuffed peppers and again, you would not know it is not ground beef but the spices and seasoning makes the difference. This is a health mandate not an ethical one.

                                                    kland-I applaud the support you show your partner....I have, unknowingly, been served tofu in some food dishes, never to know it! Spices and seasonings make a difference in everything and anything.......

                                                      Dinner out with my best friend and partner. Texas Roadhouse (shock)! 8oz filet mignon, portabella sauce on the side, Caesar salad, and baked potato. Along with a vodka martini - yum!

                                                        Wow Felix!  My FFIL made the same meal Tuesday night.  Roast, potatoes and carrots and a roll.  It was very good.

                                                          Checking to see if I can post pics yet...
                                                           
                                                           
                                                          If so, that's pan fried tilapia with creamy dill sauce, baked potatoe with sour cream and salad with cheddar, bacon and ranch.  Mmmm...

                                                            Oh, you all are in trouble now!  LOL.  But seriously, just posting pics I took before and didn't get to post.  They are all pretty recent.
                                                            The plate overfloweth and camera sucks! This is the dinner I made the other night. Fried pork chops, cornbread, greens, baked beans...
