      Last night was lobster ravioli in pink vodka sauce. I added some fresh chopped up lobster meat into the sauce. Delicious!

          Agnes, outstanding!
           
          I had Kroger's Premium Toffee something ice cream.
           
          Didn't like the flavor.

            Bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin steaks, a small rack of pork back ribs, baked potatoes, pasta salad, and grilled broccoli and mushrooms are on tonight's menu.

              Since it's Mother's Day, I decided to make mom one of her favourites: tuna noodle casserole. But since she's not supposed to have carbs, I used whole wheat penne instead of egg noodles.

                I think the next time we go out, I'll introduce him to the concept of food pictures.
                 
                Took the guy out for dinner (his birthday is tomorrow, but I'm working 18 hours) to a local steakhouse. Rare tri-tip, with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. He got his well done (blech), with a loaded baked potato and side salad.

                  Well done?  Time to re-assess. 
                   
                  Tell him you're a food reporter.  You would not be lying.

                    I boiled some spaghetti and topped it with mushroom sauce from Andres Italian Restaurant.  It's not tomato based and is more of a brown wine sauce.  I ate the evidence.
                     
                    I buy a few pints whenever I'm there and freeze it.
                     
                    Been looking for the recipe for more than 30 years.

                        I'll share my caramel cake. Just leave the caramel gloop alone....or I'll show you the plastic fork.

                            Tell him you're a food reporter.  You would not be lying.

                            I've brought it up in conversation a couple of times...I think he'll be prepared.
                             
                            Tonight, I treated myself, all by myself, to fabulous sushi. I'm doing a show this week and have been typically getting fast food on the way home for days, or eating the leftover tuna casserole. Today I have a 90-minute dinner break, and the best sushi in town is two blocks from the theatre.

                              Felix, that sushi looks wonderful.  (They have sushi in Michigan?    )
                               
                              I've been putting together a huge pot of gumbo for my late by one week Mother's Day dinner.  Doing Southern this year with mostly sides. That's a lot of slicing and dicing.
                               
                              Doing all of this while in pain.  I thought I broke a bone at the base of my thumb.  I waited 3 months to go to a doctor.  My doctor is the Clipper's doctor and knows my family so I like him and trust what he says.
                               
                              What I did was inflame an arthritic thumb.    I'm missing 50% of the cartilage and of course it hurts!  So he hurt me even more with a huge needle full of anti-inflammatory.  IT HURTS!
                               
                              So the end of this story is that I had a peanut butter and Knott's Boysenberry Seedless Jelly sandwich.

                                LOL Mar!! It took me almost 20 years to find this place...and I only went there after people who aren't from here told me it was good. Used to be, I could only get sushi when I traveled to within view of the ocean, but they do a darn fine job if a little pricey (you're looking at $28.00 worth right there). But I'm good with paying because I know their fish is fresh.
                                 
                                Sorry your thumb hurts. Hopefully after the needle part stops hurting it'll help. I wish I was there...I'd totally offer to slice and dice everything you need in exchange for some gumbo. It's been over a year since I made any.

                                  I also haven't made any in some time.  I cheated this time and used a base but I doctored it up real good.  It's not like mine, but it's not bad.  The taste will change a bit Sunday when I add the shrimp.  Tomorrow I'll be peeling and deveining.

                                    Mar - Sounds like a great Mothers Day event coming up!  Looking forward to pics later.
                                     
                                    Bummer about your thumb!  I have the same condition, but have never gotten a shot for it.  Doc offered to remove the offending bone instead. Yikes.
                                     
                                    Glad to find another partner in crime who'd have an apple fritter for dinner (and admit it).

                                      Apple Fritters aren't big enough.  When I get to that last bite I'm so sad.
                                       
                                      Surgery for the condition was mentioned but he thought that was way off and wasn't that excited about it.  (Good!)  The doctor mentioned some sort of a molded brace made for me if the pain didn't subside. 
                                       
                                      Time for me to start my cheesecake.  I'm going to toast a few walnuts to add to the graham cracker crust.  I want to thank the inventor of the food processor, a small kitchen appliance I rarely use.

                                        Feel better soon Mar! No free throw practice...and no playoffs.

                                        Carlos' apple fritter was as big as a manhole cover. It easily covered what's for everything that day...

                                          Last night was lobster ravioli in pink vodka sauce. I added some fresh chopped up lobster meat into the sauce. Delicious!

                                          Looks scrumptious! Where do you get lobster ravioli ? Or, make it yourself? Love to make this, myself! Please share any tips!

                                            I just fail to understand why you go to all the bother of peeling and deveining  when you can go to Boneys/Henries or what ever name they now call them self now and for a few measley dollars more buy them already to cook w/o all that hassle? 
                                            I'm sorry Mar but sometimes your "thriftieness"  make me shake my head!

                                              Those shrimp shells hold all the flavor for the stock.  If you're not using them, you freeze them for later!

                                                I doubt Mar needs a lesson on Gumbo...as she has won her share of Gumbo contests.

                                                  Well then....  please accept my apologies for the reply!  I assumed (and we all know what that means)  that your Shrimp was for the mainstay of the meal!  
                                                  Why dont you try using crawfish next time.....  perhaps a bit less expensive and tastes just as good!

                                                          I didn't "relent".  I said I was going to eat salad in response to his cheeky remark after seeing some photos of me on another thread........"Geeze, you were thinner then!"  Arrrrrrrrrgh.

                                                            I've tried but don't like whole wheat pasta. If it was the only pasta choice, I'd eat much less.
                                                             
                                                            As for supper tonight, leftovers, and sandwiches, but with a side of fresh asparagus and garlic from our own garden.
