What Did We Eat Today?

Recommended Posts



Running errands today, I found myself near my favourite cupcake shop. I'm rarely in the area when they are open, so I decided I needed a treat.  Customers were lined up out the door, and I didn't see any convenient parking, so I kept driving and decided God didn't want me to have cupcakes.  I then passed a great barbecue restaurant I don't get to often, so I pulled over and called in an order for pickup as my alternative treat.  I ran another errand, then headed back to pick up my barbecue.  As I drove past the cupcake shop, I saw there was no line and there was a parking spot right in front.  

Turns out, God wanted me to have brisket, cornbread, mac and cheese AND a pumpkin spice cupcake.

Treat yo self.

Broiled lamb chops with rosemary sprigs from the ginormous rosemary bush that I planted in my backyard and is taking over....plus a very nice tangerine.

I'll be eating pork chops with no vegetables, because I am a moron.  My parents are already at the lake in their motorhome, and took their produce with them, and I have just the right amount of won't still be good when I get back food left to kill off before I join them Wednesday.  I'm spending tonight at their house (with their cats), and dutifully brought my salad mix and dressing and some leftover stir fry for tomorrow's lunch ... but forgot my broccoli.  My mom left me two thin-cut pork chops, so I have those brining, but I have no side dish.  I'll just have extra salad, but what a dumbass; jeez, for a whopping four things, I need to write it down?

Spaghetti alla Carbonara. I got inspired when I saw pancetta at Trader Joe's for 3 bucks.

That is one of my favorite meals. I am going to put that on the menu for next week.

Tonight was vegetable and shrimp pancakes.

I bet there'll be a crowd in TJ's the rest of this week, but thanks for the tip.  I haven't seen pancetta at TJ's but will look for it next trip (like next week!!)

We're having Thanksgiving again tonight. The meal I ordered to go yesterday was for 2, but there is enough turkey for another meal plus making turkey noodle soup. So, besides turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet mashed potatoes, sage-sausage dressing, green been casserole (made from scratch - it is really good), gravy, cranberry sauce, and maybe we'll get to the pumpkin pie.

Grilled pork chops, mashed potatoes, green peas, and (for me) applesauce. My mother always served applesauce when we had pork chops for dinner (she said it was to help with digesting pork). I think a lot of people did that years ago. It was a nice food trip down memory lane.

One of my favorite meals of the year, open faced hot turkey sandwiches: whole wheat lightly toasted, a layer of mashed potatoes, a small amount of gravy, a layer of stuffing, a small amount of gravy, sliced Turkey baked in the oven until hot, a ladle full of gravy over the whole thing and topped with cranberry sauce and a side of green been salad and raw Brussels sprout and pomegranate salad.

Used the turkey carcass to make stock to finish off the last of the turkey without just eating leftovers so yesterday was a turkey pot pie and today was turkey noodle soup with the last of the rolls toasted.

We had Giada's Lemon Spaghetti with Shrimp and it was really good. I've made it before. Love frying the capers (10-15 seconds)...makes me feel like a chef for some reason. Next time I think I'll cut back a teence with the lemon juice.

Last night we celebrated our anniversary by getting dinner from Coastal Flats, a favorite restaurant nearby.  I had Crispy Two Noodle With Shrimp Salad, and MrP914 had a crab sandwich plus their chopped salad with buttermilk dressing. Love their food!

Happy Anniversary! I looked at their menu and I can see why it's a favorite place.

We had curry peanut chicken with rice and veggies.

Nancy Silverton’s Chopped Salad. It’s basically an Italian sub without the bread but it has the word salad in it so it feels healthy!

I love that salad, especially in the summer. With bread on the side, of course.

Eggplant lasagna and salad for me.

Congrats!!

Sadly there are not many places still open here in MT that deliver. My stomach has not been in a good mood lately so food consumption has been on the light side. Two noodle shrimp salad sounds divine!!

I just had plain pasta with butter and Asiago cheese.

Thanks! Pasta w/ Asiago & butter sounds quite tasty to me. We picked up the meal (no extra fee from grub hub & the food was still hot). I hope your stomach's mood improves.

Tonight was grilled salmon with a mustard vinaigrette, seasoned oven potato rounds, and green beans. Thank you to the grill master. It's 35 degrees outside.

Yesterday I was feeling lazy and in need of comfort food. I picked up a rotisserie chicken and Bob Evans mashed potatoes, and green beans for dinner. I made chicken noodle soup with the leftover chicken and had that for lunch today. I'm going to freeze some.
