What are you having for dinner? (1 Viewer)

Pairs nicely with a Merlot or a nice sovignon blanc.

Pterodactyl with stuffing and mashed potatoes. That one is probably best with a nice chablis. (White meat, after all....)

I had a burrito thing. Whole wheat tortilla, refried beans w taco seasoning, corn, onion, tomato, guacamole and black olives. Brussels sprouts on the side. I can't take a pic because I already et it. So sorry.

We just had a big salad. I seem to chop more than cook lately. I always feel bored by the idea of salad, like eating will be a chore. Then I'm surprised when I love it, even though I fix and eat it nearly every day. The secret to a great salad, imo, is just use at least seven or eight ingredients, and chop it small enough that you get more than one taste in each bite. Tonight: Romaine lettuce, spinach, radish, carrot, zucchini, celery, cilantro, orange and raisins (nine ingredients). It was very nice imo.

We had a bit of rocket in the salad the other night, first home grown ingredient to hit the kitchen. Other things won't be long now. Salad leaves are coming on, the first flowers are on the tomato and courgette plants, it's coming.

Well,,,this is breakfast not dinner but I am starting a new breakfast regimen as my old one was not keeping me full long enough,,,so I had to up my breakfast game.
Old breakfast,,,coffee( a big one) high fiber whole wheat English muffing w bacon and Swiss cheese.
New breakfast ,,,coffee( still the big one), high fiber whole wheat BAGEL, w bacon and Swiss cheese.
See what I did there. I upped my English muffin for a bagel. The hope is to get me closer to lunch w/o being ravenous.
I live on the wild side ppl.
My critique is, the whole wheat bagel was much more wheaty tasting. Which is ok just a little over powering first thing in the morn.
I will keep u posted if my new theory on the tummy rumbles works.

If it doesn't work there is always elevenses, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and then supper. :)

Yikes, I'd be a whale even with just eating the standard three squares a day. We usually don't have anything but caffeine before about five in the evening. Don't feel hungry, either. Just used to it, I guess (plus, caffeine). However, we don't walk ten miles like RiverRose either...

I know it is easily done, but it is not a good approach. The depletion then surge in blood sugars does tend one toward diabetes. Much healthier to eat the same amount, but spread it through the day.

As a second morning into the bagel... I red flag.
I can not get past the taste.
My surrender does not come without the ability to try
I can not get over the grossness no matter how I play it out.

I'm throwing together a Cajun "blackening" spice mix from what I have in the cupboard.

It's blackened chicken tonight and blackened shrimp tomorrow!

Trying to use stuff up because we're moving. So, leftover veggie burrito toppings over quinoa. Husband was still hungry so I made him some canned southwest vegetable soup doctored up with diced potatoes and topped with chopped cilantro, green onion and jalapeno, with peanut butter toast.
