So far only breakfest, lunch maybe or not. Dinner should be great, DW is cooking, not me.

Peanut Butter Pandemonium...vanilla ice cream with swirls of peanut butter, chocolate and tiny peanut butter/chocolate bits.
Sick girls get ice cream, right?

12 oz. ribeye at Texas Roadhouse. Took my wife, daughter & hubby & grand daughter (5 months), plus step-son. I was able to combine daughter & step-son's birthdays, plus Mother's Day for my wife, all into one single meal...lol. Much cheaper that way. Total bill including tip was $120. Ribeye's for all 5 adults, plus baked potatoes, salads & 2 appetizers, as well as the traditional "Happy Birthday song" at the table by the Roadhouse crew....lol. I tell ya, I know how to throw a party

Update: 2 strawberry Moonpies and a glass of milk!

DD made a delicious Shepard's pie that was enjoyed by all. It sure beats the crowds at the resturants

Wow, that looks like some mighty fine home-cooking! That catfish looks to be cooked perfectly, and home-made slaw and hush-puppies? - mmmmm. DW makes great slaw, but I'm not sure us Northerner's would know how to properly cook hushpuppies, but I've had 'em down South, and they are a great side dish.

Your breakfast and lunch choices would leave something to be desired for me, but that dinner would more than make up for it!

Thank you so much.

I've made feeble attempts cooking up homemade hushpuppies in the past, and they've all been disasters. As a matter of fact, my last attempt was more than 20 years ago.

I'm not sure if it was the great recipe I found or the additional years of cooking experience....but they tasted so fine.

I'll keep the recipe handy and will scare up some more in case y'all are ever down my way.

Yesterday I had leftover food from Friday. Lamb chops, sausage (bison and duck), quinoa, and day old sangria. The fruit in the sangria was very tasty - definitely better after another night soaking up wine.

Made a stir-fry for dinner using fresh broccoli and snap peas from the garden, along with some grilled pork (cut into strips). Served it over wild rice (that we harvested). Very tasty!

Breakfast: Beer and fruit (had a hangover and jetlag, hate those 11 hour directs from Newark to Oahu)
Lunch: Udon noodles and assorted tempura at Marekame Udon in Honolulu
Dinner: Probably a dinner plate from Zippys

Traveling for w-rk has its perks. Sure beats going to Buffalo or Minn StPaul in winter.

I have a pot of goulash simmering for dinner tonight. I roasted, then ground caraway seeds to add to the pot. Earlier, wife got a package of frozen beef from the freezer, and it turned out to be some beef shank. Just perfect for goulash, I said.

Some people said real goulash should not have tomato, but how can that be? Tomato makes everything better. Well, not quite everything, but I surely like goulash with it than without. I will be serving this with noodles. Goulash can be eaten with spätzle, but I have never bothered to learn to make it.

I was sipping some red wine while stirring the pot. Life is so good, it's hard to believe. Oh, I just remember that I forgot to add some balsamic vinegar to the pot. Must do that now, before I forget again. Getting senile, ya know?
