Tonight was pizza and chocolate cake.

Ever since I flooded my house a week ago and have been blocked from accessing most of my kitchen, I've had very kind offers to other people's houses for dinners every single night and most have sent me home with a tupperware of leftovers for my lunch the next day. They've gone out of their way to prepare special food, often with a bottle of my favorite wine and homemade desserts.

However, right about now I'd just about kill for a simple bowl of soup and some salad. And I've had more desserts and wine in a week than I usually do in a few months.

Well, it all depends on if we can run water at BF's house. If we can, I'll be cooking. If not, we're going out. Again.

I have a recipe for chicken breasts in a balsamic vinegar sauce that looks delicious. I can't wait to try it.

DH has a work-related class with dinner included, so DS and I had Chinese Take out. Mu shu pork for me and fried rice for him. Soup and dumplings to share.

Had a cup of chicken ramen tonight, and it wasn't half bad!

Last night I sauteed some sausage and mushrooms.  Simple, cheap, and filling.

Seems to be a theme.

Broccoli, Cheesy Cheddar rice (plain steamed rice, add milk and Cheddar until it meets your cheesiness quota) and pork cutlets. Klondike bars for dessert.

The baked spaghetti squash was a bust.  I have to say that I just do not like spaghetti squash - I keep trying it ... but no dice and I like almost all veggies. ..... I will not it eat with a fox, I will not eat it on a box, I will not eat it with a goat, I will not eat it on a boat. .... oh sorry ... jsut went down another path :P)

I can't treat it as spaghetti. It's not too bad roasted with onions and garlic and treated as a side dish.

The Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant down the road got a new chef and changed their menu, so I decided to check it out. I had an amazing bowl of soup with tofu, broccoli and mushrooms and a plate of stir-fried Mongolian tofu, which was nice and spicy without being sickeningly sweet, which I find happens with spicy dishes in many Chinese restaurants. And I have enough leftovers for another 4 large meals!

It's only 6am and it already feels as if it's going to be a pizza night...

I feel like making stroganoff again.  I have all the ingredients although I wish I had more mushrooms on hand than I actually do...
