Late breakfast: yogurt with probiotics (delicious)

Late lunch: Warm potato salad with boiled small baby white potatoes, cut up with chives from the garden and a dab of organic mayonnaise, served with sauteed mushrooms, ham and garlic, no sauce required, and a glass of red wine. Mmmmmmm!

I have a new Blackberry Torch but it did not occur to me to take a picture LOL!

Breakfast at 8 am: slices of mango, orange and a few grapes. 3 pieces of plain egg cake and black coffee. Added a bit too much sugar in the coffee but consider it still within my consumption limit. Had half a glass of cold orange juice to start the bowels moving (too much info?)

Lunch - 3 plates of sushi and one california hand roll, green tea

Tea 3 pieces of roast chicken breast

Dinner and Supper yet to be feasted on....

Today for lunch, we each ordered the soup and salad combo but we selected different soups.

The first soup photo is mine, the famous/infamous shrimp and corn chowder that I raved about on an earlier thread. Actually, in the photo I notice that actually it bears an uncanny resemblance to vomit. The smell is so good and the taste so heavenly that I guess they overpower the rather blah look. It really IS divine but that just doesn't come across in the photo.

Then the salad photo - - sorry but I had already eaten a couple of bites before I thought to get my iPhone camera out.

The last soup photo is F.'s seafood gumbo. His salad looked just like mine.

Price has gone up - - $8.95 for the combo, plus we each had iced tea plus the tip. Not an especially frugal lunch but a very pleasant atmosphere.

I was curious about the cioppino recipe, and here it is! Straight from Rachel Ray as you said.

Yes, I love Rachel Ray's recipes they are easy and good . Mine looked exactly like hers except I add more shrimp and scallops and skip the cod . I also use half chicken broth and half clam broth and I always get rave reviews . You should make it for Frank !

He says, "Why? We can always go to (unnamed great local restaurant). And I agree. I really enjoy going out to lunch with him. And I really have very little desire to try to out-cook some of the best chefs in the world.

If you feel like it, you should post a photo of your own version of it next time, so we can see what it really looks like, too! Rachel Raye's commercial photo of her cioppino maybe doesn't look as real and yummy as yours might, IMO.

Looks WONDERFUL, Moemg! You are really talented. And I think yours looks better than Rachel Raye's, for sure!

The first offical grill session happened today - Mr B defrosted 2 NY strip steaks and applied a dry marinade made by one of his Portuguese (as in born in Portugal) friends from MA. The dry marinade consists of sea salt, bay leaf, and garlic. NY strip is not always the tenderest cut, but this was unbelievable. Wow!
I made fresh carrots with butter, dill, fresh ground tricolor peppercorns
and a little water, cooked slow for 3 hours in the crockpot.
We are going to experiment with a minor diet change, cutting our carbs in half and eating more veggies. We will still eat some carbs, but not at every dinner meal.
He is under doctors orders to improve his diet, and losing a few pounds won't hurt me a bit. I am happy to report I have lost 5 pounds since my highest winter weight.

I can't match the photos above, but DW just prepared a great dinner of salmon, baby potatoes, carrots and a dinner salad. Washed it down with a light Kolsch.

Made my Mom's homemade spaghetti sauce (YUM!) and served it with a new recipe for cauliflower that I tried (see below). Wow, is that easy and tasty!

Thanks Ha ! You can see my actual leftover picture . It always turns out great but I make it because it requires a few anchovies to season the pot and I get to indulge in the rest while sipping wine and making dinner .

I had 3 cups of decaf coffee with extra milk and sugar, a fresh pear, a fresh apple, and a handful of cheddar cheese flavored miniature rice cakes.
Mr B had an apple and is snacking on potato chips until dinner is ready.

Dinner will be shrimp with Dinosaur BBQ chipotle garlic dipping sauce, and asparagus sauteed in olive oil and fresh minced garlic. We will be oozing garlic fumes for quite a while.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with raisins. Coffee later at work.

Lunch: Went to Catfish King & ordered the "Special Catch" which consists of 4 pcs. of fish (fried) 3 hushpuppies, fries, a salad and cole slaw. Oh yeah...a cup of pinto beans too. You make your own salad, and I always get 1/2 plate of salad & a good portion of cole slaw. I only ate a few of the fries...since I'm watching my figure....!

Dinner'Supper: Too early to tell, but probably not much since I ate such a big lunch! If anything...probably just some soup.
