What's for dinner?

Sorry to say, but this site has been so depressing for a few days. I thought I'd ask an average, everyday question....to make us all feel a little more normal today.


I made Eggplant Lasagna, and my BIL and SIL are coming for dinner. They leave for Cali tomorrow to see their beautiful grand daughter.


Sorry, sometimes we just need some REGULAR conversation.......or at least THIS caregiver does.

Mac and cheese with broiled sliced tomatoes on top. Baked chicken, salad. Cut up watermelon, cantaloupe with blueberries. I forgot I planted radishes at the far end of the garden. One of the boys came in with them. They had been in the ground too long, very hot. But they tasted good chopped up fine in salad. I had them all pulled, washed and cleaned.

We have had stuffed peppers with peppers from the garden, and tonight after her second eye surgery mom ate 1 and 1/2 of tomatoe and bacon sandwich!! Guess after no food since last night she got hungry ( she asked for a 1/2 sandwich,, I went over board and she ate it all!) Tomorrow will be fresh green beans, ham hock and potatoes.. hubs is snapping beans while watching TV. I worked 6 out of the last 8 days ( up at 4AM, home by 830pm), and an hour long phone meeting tonight.. I am beat and he is a good and happy cook,, thank heavens! I am exhausted! Could not even sneak in a nap during her procedure.. the other lady in the waiting room just kept nattering on and on...

Yesterday, oldest bro invited me to eat out for dinner at a Korean restaurant with his family. Yum! I had steam rice, kalbi, kim chee and spicy thinly sliced potato (??). It sure cleared up my sinus last night!

Tonight, I came home. Sis - dinner was .. hot dog. Hot dog is not dinner. It's a snack. I opened a can of chili. Might as well make it chili dog. Still didn't fill me up. I don't like hot dog. Can't force myself to eat a 2nd one. I think I will go have a fudgesicle.

Love swedish meatballs. I never used ginger, just nutmeg. I will have to try them with ginger too.

My mom made porcupine meatballs back in the 60's. The rice is what makes them prickly. Swedish meatballs are made smaller about 1" and with 1/2 ground pork loin and 1/2 ground beef(low fat content). Seasoning is ginger and nutmeg, no tomato sauce. They are only good on Xmas eve or at IKEA. Must be served with rice porridge. Risengrot.

No porcupines are harmed in the making of the meatballs of the same name! ;)
