On a trip, so last night was airport food: salad with pear, feta, mixed greens and quinoa, and a peach smoothie.

We just had a nice lunch at the hotel: poached eggs with a lemon-herb sauce, steamed green beans and lentil chili.

Chicken soup from the local kosher place. I hate colds.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Seared tofu over bitter greens. I'm trying to mix up my cooking a little by following recipes rather than just throwing things in a pan and found this one from Martha Stewart. It's absolutely amazing and has me excited about my new cooking project.

Hosting my MIL's bday dinner. So making a first course of wild mushroom soup and then filet mignon with garlic shrimp topping, smashed potatoes, sugar snap peas and a lemon cheesecake with blueberry topping. And lots of Cabernet.

We'll diet tomorrow.

I planned to cook a nice dinner for two friends who are having a hard time. Thirty minutes before they were supposed to arrive, one called saying her car broke down and the other called to say she had a migraine. Bad luck, but that means I was forced to eat potatoes dauphinoise and salmon in a lemon cream sauce by myself. And since M didn't bring her signature chocolate cake, I consoled myself quite nicely with a mug brownie.

Freezing cold today and while i would love to go out and hile or snowshoe, my back ( I am recovering from a nasty fall which strained and pulled lots of things and messed up a ligament ) is not going to be up to it.

I plan to do some investment cooking for the week :)

Double batch of beef stew.  I make it with small cubes of chuck.  I'll cook both without veggies and add them when I heat up later in the week.  ( I like parsnips, carrots and potatoes )

Double batch of meatballs - boys are craving meatball subs tonight and then I will freeze on batch.

Chop up veggies and make a few salads

For my dinner - Parmesan baked tilapia, steamed green beans, Kale salad and fruit.  I've packed the lbs on in the 2 months I was restricted with my back.  I am getting stronger - but need to shed some excess weight.

I made a big batch of onion soup today & DH wanted to experiment trying to duplicate a local restaurant appetizer...so dinner was steak bites and onion soup & a tossed salad.

The steak bites were really good, but not quite the same as the ones at Jaker's.  Good excuse to keep trying.  ;D

My first attempt at homemade mushroom soup, delicious! Skirt steak and mashed sweet potatoes.
