Miso soup with a Thai twist (chilies, cilantro and peanuts). I was planning to make pad Thai but my firm tofu had gone ... bad. Weird. Sour. So I used the soft tofu and made soup instead.

We skipped dinner Sunday and had chips and salsa at a comedy club instead.

Salad from a taqueria with spinach, black beans, peppers, onions, jicama, guacamole, a little cheese and lots and lots of their pico.

Thanks for asking, but I really did just wing it. No recipe, but I softened half an onion in olive oil, added celery and garlic and a diced dried chili, then some vegetable broth, small cubes of soft tofu,soaked rice noodles, and the water the noodles soaked in, then some miso paste once it hit a boil, and peanuts (crushed) and fresh cilantro after it cooked a bit. Oh, and a generous splash of lime juice or two, and a hint of soy sauce because I overdid it on the water and needed some more depth of flavor.

Enchilada casserole -- I tried to make enchiladas but my tortillas were cracking, so I lined the pan with tortillas coated with enchilada sauce, added enchilada filling (red pepper, onions, carrots, pinto beans, spinach, garlic, spices, and some salsa) and topped with torn, sauce-soaked tortillas and served with fresh cilantro. Mmmm.

I should know better than to read this thread before lunch- yummy!
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.

Last night was a bowl of my homemade chicken and vegetable soup (thawed) and a slice of freshly baked Garden Bread (with vegetables). Umm!

Tonight, because today is my last day of unemployment before retirement--I am celebrating the start of a new job after more than a year of unemployment and I am thrilled to be going back--I plan to open a bottle of champagne and enjoy some crab cakes with a steamed artichoke, a green salad and perhaps a small key lime tart from Whole Foods. I think I will pick up some of the Prenzy ranch spices and buttermilk too because Ms_Cellany made her salad dressing sound oh-so-good!

Finally, tomorrow night I think I am going to try a variation of the Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps found in my e-mail box this morning, but use my favorite Smart Ground, a soy ground beef product. I'll add steamed corn on the cob and a green salad to that.

Take out pizza.
Because the home-made lasagna I was promised for my belated birthday celebration with my family was made with cat mince.   :'(
