Cheddar chowder, peanut butter sandwich, and Diet Coke. So good on a cold night!

Falafel chili.

That sounds delicious. Care to share the recipe?

I had leftovers from yesterday's brunch: potatoes topped with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, cheese and an egg over easy, and a big green salad with just a little lemon juice to balance the heavier main dish.

First unhealthy pregnancy craving! I went to the store, couldn't find the bacon and panicked.

Jalapeños stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon.

It is really good. I buy falafel mix (basically dried chickpeas and herbs), but if you make your own,  you could use that, too. I add a little less water to the mix than I would to regular falafel,  then cook smaller than normal pieces (about 1/2-1/4 the size of typical falafel balls) until somewhat crispy,  then add them to my beany chili. They will get a little mushy and will thicken the liquid,  so make sure you have enough. My chili is always the "toss stuff in a pot till it tastes great" variety.

Shepherd's pie. Alas, no tomato purée in the house, but the sun dried tomatoes worked well. Everybody enjoyed it, my baby grandson ate as if it was going out of fashion! ;)

What I want for dinner, is shrimp wrapped in bacon and covered in cheese from this local Mexican restaurant.

What I'm having, is french toast, hash browns, bacon and eggs. Breakfast for dinner night!

Baked sweet potato with a touch of peanut sauce and Trader Joe's Mandarin orange faux chicken. 

I had a fancy meal planned, then spent half the afternoon recovering from/coping with a kitchen flood. All my bowls were full of dirty ceiling water and my towels soaked,  thanks to dopey neighbors who left the tap on when they went to work.

Hmmmmm

Tonight is my DD's last home cooked meal before she heads bad to college, so her choice.

Salt Cod in a Tomato Garlic Confit
Herbed Pommes Anna
Steamed Green Beans
Crepes stuffed with marscapone/ricotta/brown sugar filling topped with caramelize pears.

A series of failed experiments today kept me at work way late, so I took 30 minutes to dash to our local burger dive to grab a black bean burger topped with roasted chiles, pepper jack cheese and garlic mayo on a homemade bun.

I made chili. It would seem that my mind wandered when it was time to add the chili powder. I think there will be a few trips to the tap tonight  :o
