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 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.

I cooked for the first time today. Crockpot chicken, cucumber and tomato salad. Cold pasta salad. Too hot to do much else.

Hi Dusti,

I am so envious of your NY strip steak. Sounds delicious.

Tonight it was burger and fries and a fresh lemonade. I think I better make up for it with a salad tomorrow.:-)

Send- do ya'll have a Braums? Thats the best breakfast. Fast food.
Sue- that recipe sounds way better than the one I did, but it was still good.
Becky- hope you are recovering well. bean salad was good. But Sues recipe sounds better.
Madge- Spinach enchiladas sound good.Love spinach.
Dusti- Depends if you like corn tortillas or flour? I love cheese enchiladas.YUM!
I had an Indian taco for dinner(black bean,pepperjack cheese, lettuce, tomato, jalapenos,black olives,red onions, sour cream and Louisiana hot sauce, and I like a little ketchup too)

Hi Everyone...had NY strip steak and sliced tomatoes tonight. Yummmm…

One thing I am looking for is a good beef enchilada recipe... haven't found one as yet.

That recipe sounds yummy

Spinach enchiladas with verde sauce - it was the weekend special and had zucchini and carrots along with avocado and sour cream - so good

Think I'll go simple and pick up a couple of shr dudes beef tacos with radishes jalapeños and carrots

Of course tomorrow is $1 taco Tuesday
The Viking's caregiver got a chorizo with potato and black bean taco Saturday

This recipe from Serious Eats sounds dynamite;
YIELD: Serves 6 to 8
TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes
RATED: 4-1/2 stars

2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
3 ears fresh cooked corn, kernels cut off the cob (about 2 cups)
2 red bell peppers, diced (about 2 cups)
2 medium cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
2 tablespoons minced shallots, from one medium shallot
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon zest and 6 tablespoons juice from 5 to 6 limes
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
2 Hass avocados, chopped

Combine all ingredients except for avocados in a large bowl and mix well. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes and up to over night. Right before serving, add avocados and fold gently, being careful not to mash avocados. Garnish with more chopped cilantro if desired. Serve at room temperature.


Darn, I've got to watch my cholesterol. Not saying' you have to do this but I get the Turkey sausage patty in my sausage McMuffin. Way less fat grams and I can't tell the difference in flavor. I'm sure they'd do an egg white only also (the yolk has 200 mg. cholesterol per egg!) I get mine eggless. Just sayin'.

Glad you're home Becky enjoying such a spectacular meal. How nice for a bit of solitude to recover.

Spinach enchiladas? Cheese too? What sauce do they use to cover them? Can't even imagine (?????)

Smesque, Your corn and black bean salad sounds good. I’ll have to try that. My stepson called me earlier to see if I wanted Mexican from his restaurant. Of course, I said yes. Ordered cheese enchiladas and beef and bean tostadas.

smeshque Jul 1, 2018
Glad your home becky.
Cheese enchiladas
Made a black bean and corn salad, the first time I have tried it. Added some onions and tomatoes, some cilantro and a little lemon juice, was very good. I thought corn and beans cold sounds gross, but was good, anywho.

MsMadge Jul 1, 2018
That sound wonderful, Becky
