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.

That sounds yummy.

I had a friend over for what we call tapas night. We had hummus and roasted pepper dip, then a plate of sliced baguette, carrot sticks and celery sticks to dip with. We also had some olives and pickles, then finished with some Turkish delight. All of this was washed down with her home-brewed wine.

I attended a fancy dinner and had butternut squash soup with bread sticks, a grilled portabello topped with spinach, roasted peppers and carrots and marinara sauce, and a piece of pear tart, all paired with local wines.

That sounds really nice!

I cooked tofu, carrots and peas in a bit of leftover black bean soup with a few added spices to make an interesting sauce. Served over brown rice.

Thanks to this latest cold blast here in the Q.C.  I am starting a chicken veggie soup in my slow cooker before I go face the kiddies - It should be done before we get home this evening.  :) :)

It is a favorite. The baked tater tots are delicious.

I ended up with yellow rice and taco meat.

Today was our annual outing for lunch at really hole in the wall restaurant that has the freshest oysters. Between 4 of us we went through 4 dozen raw oysters, 2 dozen oysters grilled on the half shell and topped with shrimp, butter, and parmesan, ceviche, boudin balls, hushpuppies, and a couple of dozen fried oysters.

So dinner is pecan pie cobbler and ice cream.

Right now I am so jealous I could spit.

I made chili and garlic kale chips, and we had some lentil soup and malbec, too.
