Barbecued ribs, chicken thighs, homemade macaroni and cheese, red potato salad and baked beans.

Kale soup.  And I made it all by myself.
Usually my husband does the vegetable preps for dinner and I do most of the cooking part.  I hate prep work mostly because it is hard on me with my darn back pain.  Usually I think about it and how tiring it is to do it and so end up frying an egg or something easy and quick that doesn't use up a lot of pots and pans.
However, today he was ill and hadn't eaten all day.  I wanted to do something nutritious for him.  It was so good and we both enjoyed it.
I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

No idea. Does anybody want to choose for me?

My options are Mexican, Thai or sushi.

Thai!

Tonight will be something from Trader Joe's- I'm thinking mushroom flatbread with a green salad and mini cherry pie with vanilla ice cream.
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.

Thanks for the opinions! I ended up feeling hungry but just not in the mood to eat, so I had a glass of milk and some cantaloupe. (Don't worry, I'm not starving myself! I tend to have big lunches.)

Tonight was roasted eggplant with a soy dressing, teriyaki baked tofu and a cucumber salad.

mixture of smoked sausage, shells and cheese, cream of mushroom soup, broccoli and a touch of half-and-half. It sounds weird but it tastes so good!

Sounds good to me! My friends and I had a conversation the other day about boxed mac & cheese. Half the group viewed the directions on the box as sacrosanct and nothing should be added to it, ever. The other half of us frequently use it as the launching point for a one-dish dinner.

Anyways, I took a walk to my favorite local Mexican place and savored some tacos and a margarita while I worked.

I made spanikopita last night. It was supposed to taste like heaven. Instead it tasted like spinachy death. :(

Trader Joe's cheese ravioli with marinara. Those shelf stable ones are surprisingly tasty.
