She did eat something...chicken nuggets. Probably better for her to put on weight than any other foods. She should have one of those 560 Calorie Big Macs to put on some weight.

Yesterday was two year old grandson Evan's birthday, so DD#1 made Parmesan chicken & sweet taters. DD#2 made the dinosaur cake using German Chocolate recipe. Both daughters take pride in the kitchen, and they both turn out some fantastic, flavorful meals. I'm very proud of them, because most of what they make is from scratch whenever possible. They both prefer organic foods when they can get it from a reputable source. Great food and great birthday party. Evan's favorite gifts were a guitar that Mommy gave him at breakfast, then it was the Radio Flyer wheel barrow from Grandma & Grandpa that was just his size. http://netcookingtalk.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=19307&stc=1&d=1416189793 http://netcookingtalk.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=19308&stc=1&d=1416189793

i know that they're junk; then again, when you're getting food via a nurse & not giving him a cent, u stick to hi-kCals & nominal prices. sure, a steak would be great, except i limit myself when someone else is buying fer me, unless they're close to me. simple respect.

i'll be makin' pierogies soon enough.

Spaghetti with homemade marinara and egg roll turned into garlic bread in the toaster oven. Side salad with Mrs JEV's balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Then we went to the Senior Center and walked 2 miles on the treadmills. Snow sucks for walking when the sidewalks aren't cleared.

I was craving Arby's roast beef today, so I went and got a medium roast beef with horsey sauce, and a side salad with Italian dressing.

:hide:

I do cook occasionally, when the mood strikes.
Being single and cooking for one isn't that easy all the time.

Next time I make something luscious and pic worthy, I'll post it, just like I used to do.

Ate some Brown Rice Vegetarian Sushi for dinner tonight.

What a waste of chewing effort.

I cannot recommend it. Ever. Unless maybe you dip it in butter and wrap it in thick cut bacon. Or maybe serve it as a side dish with a steak and then forget to eat it so you just scape it off the plate into the trash. Even the dog didn't want it.

Leftover beef stew with all of the leftover veggies that my daughter saved in tiny amounts. She had a rare brain cancer at 17 and can no longer live alone so she lives with her dad and I. First surviver of this cancer. Saves even one bite of something. Many times it drives me crazy but once in a while it has it's benefits. Like tonight. The rest of the time it gets thrown out.

I made a big hamburger steak in the grill pan, using what I do believe is a recipe from the old Fannie Farmer cookbook.
You make the burger steak, then drain it well, then spread on the teensiest amount of butter and top with caramelized onions and a splash of Worcestershire sauce.
So, it was that and Ore-Ida steak fries, with lots of ketchup and black pepper.:biggrin:

Went to a little Mom-n-Pop restaurant and got one of the senior dinner specials for $6.49. I had the baked scrod with green beans, baked potato & bowl of stuffed pepper soup. Just the right amount of food and very delicious. Mrs JEV had taco salad that she also enjoyed.

I made a kobe sirloin for myself as well as a tin potato.The tin potato is bacon, potato, and a slice of onion wrapped with foil and baked. I learned that one from a saloon in Pierre when pheasant hunting a few years ago. The sirloin was excellent, BTW. It was grilled over the coals with mesquite for smoke.

NOT COOKING TONIGHT.

Tired of left overs and 'freezer diving' dinners.

Taking the family out to dinner at a local steakhouse. Not sure what any of them will be ordering but I will probably have a giant double thick bone-in Rib Eye. Unless they have some sort of a lamb special, they also have really good lamb at this place. Then again I might have fish, if they have a good sounding special tonight. So probably one of those 3 options, unless they have rabbit. Had some rabbit about 3 weeks ago, it was awesome, so I could be coaxed. Maybe pheasant, just becuase I rarely get it, or duck, because I always love a nice roasted duck. Of course goose is even better.

So that is what I am having. Its narrowed down to something on the menu, or on the specials list.

I was just saying today I'm hungry for duck and have not shot one in several years. Guess I'll have to buy one. I have one pheasant left from last year but it's going into pheasant supreme.

Tonight I pan fried a ribeye, NY Strip, and small fillet. The NYS will be hash next week.

Going to a family Christmas dinner. Don't know exactly what is on the menue. I am doing my usual thing, taking along Oyster stew, Chesapeake oysters. Never had the opportunity to try the Pacific kind. I think they would still be fine eating though....

The ones I have eaten from the Gulf coast were very good indeed. I suppose any flavor difference could be from what they are filtering out for food. Heck so far I like all of them!

Baked Acorn squash sounds good. Brown sugar, butter, and a touch of vanilla in mine please...

I was the only one to have a bowl so have plenty of soup for the next three days or so.

Oysters with their liquor, whole milk, butter, and pepper; needed salt at the table.

Tomorrow we are going to DITKA'S in Chicago. Not sure what I'm going to eat. Possibly the Rib-eye. Its my favorite cut of beef. But they have excellent Baby Back Ribs. Oh, and then there is the Chilean Sea Bass, my favorite fish to order at fine restaurants. Just going to wing it when I get there.

Went to Chicago and had my wife's birthday dinner. Her Birthday is tomorrow but I'll be at a fencing competition all day and into the late evening before I get home.

Started out with some grilled octopus served over a boiled fingerling potato salad.
Then some Squid/Mussels/Clams served over toasted rice sized noodles. (don't recall the special name of the noodle).
Finally some fluke baked in a bag with fennel, white beans and a garlic butter.
Each course had its own wine, but honestly I'm not really a wine guy, could have lived without any of that.

Then we walked into the kitchen and got a little cooking lesson from the chef and the fish monger, got to try some boiled octopus in there, and discussed cleaning fish, squid, etc with the fish monger. Was a nice evening.

I left the kitchen early after I went through 4 cases of pierogies and helping the baked fish guy prep 5 sheet pans of Alaskan pollock. He preped and baked 20 sheet pans of fish, which was 5 cases. Last week we sold 550 meals from 5-7:30 pm. That's a butt-load of work for 20 volunteers.

One has to wonder just how many different ways there are to make pasta??? This is a first-see for me, so I did some research found a couple different ways to do this. I particularly like the method of using a pastry bag to fill each tube with a ricotta mixture to half full, then top off each one, & the voids in between, with meat sauce and cheese to cap it off. It's harder to make than traditional lasagna, but it will surely have people talking about how clever you are. Pasta pie, pasta cake, baked Ziti, baked spaghetti...no end to the ways folks will turn pasta into a casserole.

yeah! 'cept, i explain, often, that i have not got 1 dish that i'll specicfy as 'that dish'. rather, i'll take seasonal items, my previous knowledge, former Chefs' advice, advice via Chef-pals, & intuition, & several variations, sometimes. other thoughts, as well.
if I'm 1st-time making a dish, & i've got a winner.. then 'll watch ppl's expressions. visual appeal, flavor, aftertaste, nods of approval-- i look fer them. i've gotten few critiques/criticisms as yet-- those that i have gotten have made me create a better item.

btw, i make rockin' steak & lamb. so simplistic, yet, so complex to get to that correct level.

Last night it was Merino's tuna salade with anchovies like I used to get at the Cora in Forbach, Lorraine, FR.

The tuna has hardboiled eggs, celery, chopped green olives, onions, tuna, and Miracle Whip since I am out of mayo.

Tonight it chili and cheese and crackers for a dreary, rainy day.

I miss having anchovies on a pizza. Gotta do that when the gorgeous Mrs. TR is not around. She hates them :yum:

Do a half and half. Most places here accommodate but surprised how many don't even keep them on hand. I love the little fish and can't get enough.

Been there and done that, my friend. She claims she can smell them and still taste them somewhat on the other half which ruins it for her.

I wonder if the dog likes them? I'm willing to bet she does, so I won't have to eat alone. :yum:

BTW, I like that list of ingredients in the Tuna Salad. Yes Mayo is much better. That goes without saying. Gotta try that. Kudos.

"She who must be obeyed" is making turkey meatloaf for dinner, so I just have to do the dishes (which I always do anyway). I'm guessing there will be mashed 'taters & corn as well. Getting hungry...

Sounds familiar. I'm not too pussy whipped. :yum:

I like the tangy zip of Miracle Whip which I will use tomorrow on the chicken salad I will make. Miracle Whip was the only thing my mom bought when I was growing up and I never acquired the taste for mayo.

I like both.

The chili is simmering on the hob.

Sirloin tip steak sauted with onion, multi colored bell peppers, and mushrooms here this evening. My daughters are demanding some red meat...:smile:

For some reason I think this could be better with a little red wine reduced while cooking. So what do you think?

If braising the meat a bit of cab or merlot would be a nice addition or deglaze the pan with same for a sauce to add at the table.

You raise your own beef or strictly crop operation?
