I love a tuna club sammich with tuna salad, bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, & cheese on either rye or wheat bread (toasted). Usually a triple-decker! I don't make 'em at home, but at least once a week on my lunch break I go to the bowling alley on base where I work & get the sammich, fries & iced tea for $5.50. Good stuff!

My wife and I split the housework on everything but kitchen duty. She's not allowed in there.

I tried out a new recipe for risotto with short grain brown rice, carrots, more garlic than you can swing a vampire at and green beans. Had garlic bread on the side.

This recipe will not go in the 'make again' pile. I'll stick with arborio rice from now on.

Hmmm - boiled potato's w butter/salt, bacon wrapped filet mignon - medium rare, can of Pepsi and a spumoni ice cream cone - two scoops.

I'll do diet and exercise come spring - maybe toss in a day of fasting as atonement - or not.

heh heh heh - kinda made me think of pizza as a possible late night snack. .

Udon (soup) loaded up with shredded veggies and a frozen egg roll. Not quite fast food, but close.

The late SO had a word for that - Lake food(toss out the back door into Lake Ponchartrain).

I did have a lot of cook books and she had a telephone - she'd call and I'd go pick up.

heh heh heh - one can experiment with different hobbies - and then move on. . I was good at driving for pizza, Chinese, Po-boys, Popeyes, etc.

DW came up with a dish that knocked my socks off tonight.

She took eggplant, thinly sliced lengthwise, fried lightly in bread crumbs. Then each slice was rolled around motcorella [sp] cheese and baked for about 30 minutes. It is then served with a killer marranera [sp] sauce. (Sorry, these Italian words are killing me. I love the food, but I don't know the language.)

I ate two, but I could have eaten twice as many. Yum.

Oh, that is too funny Tightasadrum. I made the same thing, only had eggplant "circles". I put some ricotta cheese on a layer of the eggplant, then more eggplant, added a jar of Ragu and gobs of parmesan cheese.

and oh yeah, garlic.

tightasadrum,

This sounds delicious. I'd love to make it but I can't figure out what cheese your DW used. I tried googling and checked out some online cheese stores for Italian cheeses, but nothing I found sounds close to "motcorella" (unless it's mozzarella?). :confused:

Any chance you can confirm which cheese she used?

TIA,

omni

Stuffed and Rolled Eggplant Marinara

2 servings olive oil cooking spray (2 seconds of spray)
1 tablespoon olive oil
5 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
6 ounces tomato paste
5 pounds tomatoes, blanched and peeled
10 basil leaves, shredded into small pieces
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 ounces parmesan cheese
2 large eggplants, peeled
1 ounce parsley, chopped fine
1 pound ricotta cheese
1/2 cup all-purpose wheat flour
2 egg substitutes, prepared
2 servings olive oil cooking spray
1/2 pound mozzarella cheese, sliced thin
4 ounces parmesan cheese
For marinara sauce: Heat olive oil in a frying pan coated with cooking spray and sauté garlic. Stir in tomato paste and tomatoes. Cook over medium heat for 20 - 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with shredded basil. Add pepper and grated cheese to taste. Remove from heat. For stuffed eggplant: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Stir parsley into ricotta and set aside. Slice peeled eggplants lengthwise in 1/4-inch slices. Sprinkle with salt and allow to "sweat" for 10 minutes. Dip in egg substitute, dredge in cracker meal, and bake for 10 - 15 minutes, or until tender. Place a mozzarella slice and a scoop of ricotta in the middle of each eggplant slice. Roll up and place, seam side down, in a baking pan coated lightly with cooking spray. Cover with marinara sauce. Bake 25 - 30 minutes. Allow to set up before serving. Garnish with parsley and grated cheese.
