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.

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
