A bit of this, a bit of that, over the last few hours. A few pieces of baked tofu in apricot barbeque sauce, some roasted eggplant with marinara, fresh spinach with a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of herbs, and now I'm munching on frozen watermelon while I watch Project Runway.

Redcap Family Not Really Secret Recipe Chicken Wings.  8)

About a kilo of chicken wings, separated into the different joints (bony tips kept in the freezer for future stock making).
In a casserole dish, add garlic, every single herb you find in your spice rack that goes with chicken and you feel like putting in, a heaped tablespoon of brown sugar, a big splash of tomato sauce (er... tomato puree would be a better substitute than ketchup, I think), and a few grinds of pepper. Pour over worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and malt vinegar (I use about 1/5 worcestershire, 2/5 soy and 2/5 vinegar, but you can adjust to taste) until the wing pieces are barely covered.
Cover and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour, preferably overnight.

When you're ready to cook, put the whole dish (marinade and all) into the UN-PREHEATED oven, and set to 180 C. Walk away and ignore. About an hour and a half later, shift everything around with a spoon, put back in for about another hour. When fully cooked the meat should be nearly black and falling off the bone.

Serve with bread and a green salad. If you're me, you save the liquid and eat it later reheated and poured over bread. >:D

I am going to be dining solo for the next two days. Lots of my vegetarian chili, pasta with chicken sausage and a garlic cream sauce and snack type food for me.

I went to a wedding and had spanikopita, mashed potatoes, salad, rolls, amazing carrot cake and champagne. I'm pretty sure I'm mostly vegetarian because I love carbs so much. Who's got room for meat when there's roasted garlic mashed potatoes?

I think I'm going to make corn-on-the-cob and herb mashed potatoes, but I haven't decided on a main yet.  I've got a freezer full of choices!

I made a big pot of vegetable soup with red potatoes, tomatoes, red onion, chickpeas, carrots, broccoli, peapods, and water chestnuts. I went with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme (and garlic and pepper) just because I was thinking of the song.
We ate a little bit of lemon hummus with the soup crackers, too.

A scoop of Mississippi mud ice cream from Baskin & Robbins. I love being a grown-up sometimes.

Last night was pork cutlets and a salad of arugula, feta, and watermelon.  The salad was great.

Tonight is turkey and brussel sprout hash.
