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.

Perfect CWillie! Just perfect!
I will get some cheap cooking wine to tenderize and add flavor.

Yep, there was NO FAT on it!

Thank you!

Cut the roast into bite sized pieces and put it and the gravy right in the used roaster and pop it in the fridge. Tomorrow add in a good amount of tomato sauce (some wine or beer would be helpful too) and whatever spices you prefer and then slow cook it even longer, either in the oven or on the stove top (watch it doesn't stick). Near mealtime add back the veggies you didn't finish, or toss in some new ones, or both... this should make a tasty stew, or if you add more water or beef broth a hearty soup.

BTW, a good pot roast must be made with a lovely fatty piece of meat, modern lean roasts will never be as tender or flavourful and are best served rare to medium rare.

I knew that I should not have cooked that beef roast in the oven-roaster pan.
It was tough, the pan may take days to clean up, and the kitchen.....
Potatoes, carrots, onions, celery.......tasting mediocre. It has been awhile, so I had to borrow a cup of flour to make the gravy.

It was so bad, dH and I were laughing. Then, there is the leftovers. I could puree it for soup?

Now, there is a bee trying to get into the kitchen through the screen door.

Does this mean I should stop trying to cook?

The upside? Leftovers for three more meals. Or downside, because I hate leftovers.

That sounds so good, Johnjoe. And nutritious.

...

I'm having peas for breakfast. It's the only thing in the refrigerator besides condiments. I need to do a big grocery shopping trip to stock up at new place but I haven't done it yet. I've been living off of take out, delivery, fast food, and of course work food on days I am there.

The sight of a completely empty frig and freezer after 3 weeks is a very sad sight, though. lol I'll know I'm over the hump of having a new place when I'm cooking and eating out of my own kitchen again.

Bacon & cabbage with a white sauce consisting of lots of boiled milk, onion and garlic and a good soup spoon of cornflower to thicken and potatoes. So many choose to strain the cabbage water down the sink when it is cooked but I save it to drink when cooled also for making soup or sauces next day. All of the Iron is contained in the cabbage water.

Lol CWillie,
It is what's left in the cupboard, after giving no thought to the menu.

Of course zucchini bread is a vegetable - and so is pumpkin pie!

Send, have you been getting ideas from the nursing home menu?

Eating too late for a real dinner....chicken breast and baked beans. Brownies for dessert. Well, I am having brownies. DH is asleep.

Ms Madge- I believe zucchini bread may very well fall under veggie.
Depending the ratio of zucchini vs bread. :]

I just had honey bunches of oats, for dinner.
