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.

Costco spinach ravioli, costco pesto, costco frozen veggies, costco pinot grigio. Mom is in hospital, got a pacemaker yesterday. Will prob be discharged tomorrow. I realized yesterday, when I was there all day, in icu, post surg etc...I'm not good at the warm and fuzzy stuff. I know my mom loves me, but after I'm standing awkwardly by her bedside for a bit, she looks around and asks for my sister in law who thank God is there.

ya beat the h*ll out of a pork cutlet if you want to make a sandwich out of it jeanne ..
i stop in the evenings and help edna eat her meal from the local mission . its a shelter for homeless men so the boxed meals are usually quite generous . the mission still gets govt american cheese and it isnt soy oil and yellow dye -- its freakin cheese ..
mcdonalds can rot in h*ll . a quarter pounder has gotten as small as a single burger , cokes are watered down , fries briny from excess salt . theyve cut till they dont have a product left -- hope they fail ..

It works best if you pre cook the bacon but last night I bought the boxed partially cooked bacon and just wrap around the middle of each spear but the thicker ones are better. The pork tenderloin I cut in about 1 1/2" pieces and pound to about 3/4" thick lightly with the rubber mallet. Dad doesnt handle a knife too well so this helps a bit.
Tonight a chicken hot dish with biscuits on top. Forgot to buy milk to drink though.

for some reason, a Big Mac and fries sounds just about perfect here too....

57twin. I love pork tenderloin! But, gee, it is probably the most tender cut of pork there is, I can't imagine pounding it thin (or pre-chewing it, as captain has so picturesquely put it). That must be for some reason other than tenderizing it, right? Then how do you cook it? Saute? Asparagus with bacon sounds awesome. Tonight I roasted our asparagus by tossing it in a mixture of olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic granules, and Parmesan cheese. It was the second time I've done that and so far it is our favorite way to have asparagus. But I'm going to try the bacon. Exactly how do you do that?

Along with the asparagus tonight we had a chicken hot dish with egg noddles and a creamy sauce. Black plums & watermelon as the sides. Comfort food all the way!

ingenuity codger. i once made brownies in the army over an oxygen / acetelyne torch . freakin cooks were too slackjoweled to prepare what was sent to the field for us . the icing was more brownie mix , only not as well baked..better than some of the gruel the cooks slapped together anyway. 57, when i usedta butcher pigs id take a bunch of cutlets and pound flour into them on top of a stump . i used a cheap clawhammer that the claws had broken off of . essentially , youre prechewing the cutlets for lack of a better term . seems to me a mallet would bruise the h*ll out of them.

Marinaded port tenderloin which I cut on pound thin (use a rubber mallet works better than a kitchen one and much cheaper), mashed potatoes and the ever present asparagus (roasted with bacon tonite . Leftover dessert from yesterday to finish.
