Shrimp Creole with Jasmine Rice.
I gotta start peeling shrimp in a few.
Grilled ribeye, sauteed broccoli with lots of garlic and pine nuts.
Still on coffee...no fucking idea.
Chicken Tikka, rice, and that's as far as I've gotten.
Going to brunch in a little while. I won't eat again until supper time. I'll probably just heat up a pie or something.
No money til Thursday/payday. But I have four cans of Campbell's Chunky and a bag of rice. So I'm going to ladle the soup over rice and pretend I'm in an expensive Chinese restaurant.
I also have pie
Jenny Craig. Maybe I'll have the chicken tikka with brown rice.

We used to eat that in the olden college days, before America had ramen noodles. We would buy canned tuna and canned tiny shrimp. We'd chop up some celery and dump it and the shrimp in something called Golden Tomato soup, pour it over brown rice we bought from the followers of the teenaged Indian guru who lived up the road and have "shrimp gumbo." We'd put the tuna in one of the Cream of soups --probably mushroom --and dump it over brown rice.
We're going southern tonight for a group of 16 of us.
Fred Chicken or Country Ham
Sting Beans cooked in bacon grease
Corn on the Cob
Baked Mac and Cheese
Corn Bread Squares (gluten free)
Patty Cake with Molasses and Apple Compote
We started cooking yesterday and lost the fucking hour.
"We would buy canned tuna"
Except tuna is more expensive now, over a dollar a can. And high mercury levels- eat sparingly.
R8, How easy is it to make Chicken Tikka?
R14, "Cotton" salad and "patty" cake? Is that a new children's game?
Chicken with quinoa
Serve his liver with fava beans and a nice Chianti.
Cheese and pickle sarnies, Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey icecream.
What is a "sarnie?"
I'm making was R3 suggested
I made turkey meatballs and sauce yesterday. Should be delicious tonight! Gotta go out and grab a veggie. And some fruit for dessert.
Tuscan Bean Soup
Pot roast and sautéed greens.
Vegan loaf, buttered lima beans, steamed broccoli, mashed potatoes, watermelon and banana raisin walnut muffins.
I just had air-popped popcorn with olive oil and a homemade mocha. Later, fresh-baked bread with almond butter.
Another one here asking .... ??? cotton salad ???
What is in vegan loaf?
Ropa vieja over quinoa.
Red leaf lettuce with cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, red onion and reduced fat feta with a lime ginger vinaigrette.
Refried beans w/cheese, rice, and salad. Yumm.
Vegan loaf, a faux meatloaf. The one today was made with textured vegetable protein, oats, flax meal, breadcrumbs with spices etc.
I also make one with bulgur and lentils
Pizza Hut Sliders.
Nothing personal, R35, but that sounds awful. Is "textured vegetable protein" another way of saying "tofu"?
Roasted pork fillet with honey and sage, a green salad on the side and potatoes. Apple compote with roasted almonds, whipped cream and chocolate chips for desert.
Pappardelle with Bolognese Sauce.
We went to the Italian market yesterday and they had fresh pappardelle - $3.50 for 1 lb container.
The Bolognese sauce is simmering as I type. Used beef, pork and veal.
5 Guys burger and Cajun fries.
Here is a recipe. But you can also buy it a Trader Joes.
Delicious fish pie mashed potato toppong with prawns n salmon taking the place of white fish, yum!
I just whipped up something trashy and indulgent -- two hot dogs with Sriracha mixed with mayonnaise, pickled cabbage, and potato chips. Side of canned chili sauce and chopped onions. And a Bud Light.
Leftovers. Had a dinner party last evening. London Broil, fresh green beans, roasted baby red potatoes. Simple tossed salad with spring greens, kalamata olives, feta, red onion and mandarin oranges.
Just enough left for dinner tonite.
Is the Bud Light part of the recipe, or a side dish, r44?
Homemade pot roast with carrots and potatoes, and brown rice pudding with rum soaked raisins.
Fresh salad. Nothing beats it.
Beef & Broccoli Casserole served over Spanish rice.
R48 Me too. With home made blue cheese dressing.
Ina garten's lentil soup. It's surprisingly, very, very good.
I would just like to report that my Shrimp Creole turned out great, excellent as a matter of fact.
I started with one of those powdered mixes and "doctored" it. I am a good doctor-er.
I would also like to report that my Pappardelle with Bolognese Sauce was outstanding.
Of course, we didn't eat until 9pm but it was still great.
A mate and I did a Caribbean dinner for friends:
Spicy aloo pies
rice and peas
Pineapple upside-down cake
Rum punch (lashings thereof)
Dark and Stormies
It was SO GOOD!!!
Beef and sausage Lasagna, extra deep. A big tossed salad with Italian dressing. Whole wheat rolls with sea salt and butter. Dark chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
My college age nephew and his roomates were here for a visit and needed a real dinner.
If I ate like this all the time I'd be 250 pounds!
I always prepare food in the morning to heat and serve later.
Today I made a green curry lentil and bulgur dish with fresh spinach wilted in when served, topped with greek yogurt. I used the dark green speckled french lentils.
Then I made a carrot apple salad with medjool dates and walnuts.
