Last night was our 32nd anniversary. So after a full day of hurricane preparations, combined with 3 months of single source eating and major weight loss, we went out for a special and romantic dinner. 3 tacos each at Taco bell, and an ice cream cone at Dumser's Dairyland. I had strawberry.

I know how you feel. Today, while eating some nice salmon done with Chinese veggies, I realized that it was at least the third piece of salmon I had eaten this week. Plus at least one tuna steak I ate at a restaurant.

To break the routine for dinner I had a steak and my new favorite salad that is easy to fix and tastes fantastic. California Summer Harvest Salad | California Avocado Commission

I think if I drink a glass of Chardonnay before I eat, the fish will taste better.
Can I come over?

I love salmon.

Last weekend I had friends to supper. Sockeye salmon (Fraser Valley) fillets grilled on my Hamilton Beach grill, garnished with a slice of lemon, fresh dill, and a spoon of tzatziki sauce. Fresh asparagus, pattypan squash, and a salad (all local). Sparkling apple juice (local) for the kids and Pinot Grigio or Gewurtztraminer (from the winery up the road) for the grownups. Fresh berries for dessert. They licked the plates clean and a good time was had by all.

Absolutely. You have an open invitation.

It's funny...I did enjoy the salmon. Or...was it because of the wine?

We ate rather late. After the kitchen was cleaned, and my second glass of wine was drained, it wasn't long before I made my way to bed. Whew...I did some snoozing.

So when you come over, let's eat early. Gotta stay awake long enough to visit.

BBQ chicken (used convection oven due to rain), mashed potatoes with green onions and cheddar cheese, canned baked beans with BACON added, and 5 squares of Hershey's Special Dark chocolate for dessert.

Leftover beans will be used with hot dogs tomorrow for Mr B's favorite meal...
Beanies and Weenies.

Smoked some Johnsonville Brats and skinless chicken breasts in my Cajun II barrel smoker.

One each breast and brat - nuked some frozen mixed veg. and Van Camps Baked Beans. Sauce was Cattlemans Original kicked up with Tiger Sauce (New Orleans La). Arizona Diet Green Tea on the rocks.

Gore - met? Not Hardly. Probably not even on my diet plan.

The rest of the meat is in the frig.

heh heh heh - like a few good stocks, sometimes one must be a little bad to feel good.

The picture of basil chicken inspired me ( I was getting bored with my usual recipes )so I found a recipe and made it today . I already had all the ingredients so I was ready to go . It turned out excellent and is a very economical dish to make . I added a little red wine to sauce it up . It cost $6.00 for five servings . I will definetely be making this again .

I had Chili and whole grain bread for lunch, coffee and some nuts for snacks and rotisserie chicken and sweet potato wedges for dinner. Eating dessert now, grapes mixed with vanilla yogurt with Kashi Go Lean Cereal on top for sweetness and crunch. Yum! I made the sweet potato wedges from a Cooking Light recipe online and they sure were good. I used 3 t of olive oil, instead of the 1 t of olive oil in the recipe, because someone had posted her DH thought it was a little dry. I think using 3 t of olive oil was perfect.

Eggs, porkchops, green beans and salad. I found a place with a mostly ethnic clientele where I can get thin cut bone-in porkchops that include both the top loin and tenderloin. These are a bit fatter than the usual supermarket fare and almost as good as the porkchops of my youth.

I don't know yet what we will have for dinner. More precisely, I do not know what my daughter will serve us. She invited us over to her home for dinner, and just called to let us know she has been running a bit late in preparation. As her home is just 5 min from ours, I am surfing this forum for a bit before leaving.

Hmmm

Breakfast was some brown rice covered with leftover sauce from lamb shanks, with a veal sausage.

Lunch was some sheep milk cheese on crackers

Dinner was Indian food takeout. My favorite. I had mutton curry, chickpeas, lentils, and a samosa. Tomorrow I'll have the same and it will taste even better.
