What's for dinner?

    I eat alone every night. (the Child of Evo works after school and weekends) and honestly after working all day, a long drive home, not getting home until after 9pm most nights, I either skip dinner because I'm too tired, or had a late snack at the office or eat whatever is at hand. Last night, dinner was velveeta cheese dip. :redface:

    Tonight I am cooking a ham. It smells so good in here. :!!) I was just thinking about how great it would be to have some blueberry poundcake for desert, but alas, I have none. :grumpy:

    I see all these great recipies posted by other members, so, I was wondering, what are you having for dinner tonight?

  3. Tonite mi mama cooked one of my best favorites: Beefy noodles. Which had with it mashed potatoes 'n gravy and some succulent steamed veggietables that I like and plus some black bread. :tongue2: I also wish there was Ben And Jerry's for dessert but we don't got any. :confused:

    Barbeque baby!

    We probably ate about seven chickens, two pigs, and half a cow this evening.

    There's nothing quite like throwing a couple of animals on the fire...

    I have no idea yet. It's already after 9 and I'm still at the office, just thinking about whether I want to pick up take-out on the way home, or if I'll really cook once home. There are chicken breasts defrosting in my fridge, so that's always an option (if not tonight, then it will be for tomorrow).

    Wow, so behaving like a caveman really does pay off then?

    I'll have to get the leopardskin thong out more often...

    Here's a small sample of what it's like to attend a Manchester Fire-be-que. Please ignore the socks.

    Sorry to hear that Evo. :frown:

    I cook just about every night - most times, nothing fancy - but quick stuff, since I have to cook for 4. After a days work, I don't want to get too involved in cooking. On the weekends, maybe something fancier if we don't get something from some place like Subway.

    Today was a heavy day of gardening. I enlarged one of the plots. The ground is a mix of clay and rock, and even my new 7hp rototiller was just getting the grass and one inch (2 cm) of soil. So it break out the pick and pitchfork, and hack away at the rocks and hard clay soil. That lasted a few hours in the morning and early afternoon. Then it was up the hill, where I am terracing the hill side (upper garden). The tiller had an easier time, but I still had to use the pick and pitchfork in places.

    Then there was mulching and watering. Working like that I consumed 2 20-oz bottles of Gatorade and a couple of pints of Cranberry juice mixed with berry selzter. When I work like that, I don't eat, just drink.

    This evening, I scarfed a hotdog while heading out the door to by more mulch and 4 boards of 2x10-10ft to make a border around one of the plots. We have another plot that will become a raised bed for an herb garden, just as soon as I remove the old tree stump and till it.

    I had a bowl of granola cereal about an hour ago.

    Another big day of gardening later today. :biggrin:
     
  16. Lamb Korma with almond slivers over Basmati Rice. Dahl soup. Fresh cucumber and onion and carrot salad with plain organic yogart dressing. And least we forget the samosa and Naan. Mmmmmmmmm. Dabble some mint and/or mango chutney over everything!!! God my belly is about to burst just thinking about the yummy Indian food. I ate too much already but I want more.... My sweetie and I dine out on the weekends.

    The final dinner selection wound up being salad out of a bag (that I added some sliced mushrooms and onion to), cheese spread on crackers, and a half pint of ice cream. I think I'd starve if I ever became lactose intolerant! I'm still waiting for cronxeh to deliver me some pizza from NY! :grumpy:
