I reheated slices of pizza.  I've pulled one of the frozen turkeys out and am going to roast it tomorrow, so I'll be having variations on turkey-turkey-turkey all week.

Beef vegetable soup with barley and mushrooms. A fresh baguette split open and toasted with randomly chosen cheese.

I decided to roast a turkey - I bought a couple of small ones and threw them in the chest freezer when they were on sale before Thanksgiving.  The smell is driving me batty.  I think I'm going to eat a slice of pizza to cope - I ate a pretty light lunch today.

Tomato basil soup from my crock pot, grilled cheese sandwiches on herb-y rolls, green salad with lemon vinaigrette, and very vanilla bundt cake with lavender glaze that was still warm from the oven, all washed down with sparkling pear juice.

Spaghetti with meatballs (four ingredients!) and marinara. Salad. Bread. Birthday cake.

Weird food: pinto beans, broccoli and spinach in green curry sauce from a jar and "Mediterranean curry" couscous (seasoning packet).

My husband thought it was great; I ... let him think that.

I had a nice lobster tail.  I discovered in the process that the presence of lobster flips a switch in my tiny and adorable kitten that turns her from her usual adorable, gentle, cuddly self into an insane and vicious beast.  I'm glad she's still pretty tiny - she might have actually hurt me if she was a little bit bigger!

Coffee Bean turned suddenly pointy, did she?

Chicken paprika.

I made-ahead coq au vin.   Better after a day in the fridge.

Leftover soup, then at chorus my friend brought me some of her homemade fleur de sel caramels for quality control purposes.

It's mom's birthday. I am making mac n cheese, and flan for dessert. I will also make mom green beans.

Also, question ehellions. Any idea what to serve over a creamy style polenta?

Sauteed mushrooms for the win!


I made spaghetti sauce on Monday, so dinner is probably going to be that on steamed broccoli with some bread.

Five things observe with care,

And how, and when, and where.
