I didn't have time for breakfast this morning nor did I even have time to grab something to take for lunch today. So I am operating on empty until I get home.

I wasn't sure what to make for dinner except that during "lunch" I watched a CHOPPED episode that featured canned salmon (it also had Crème de Menthe, ugh). That reminded me I have some canned salmon and also my homemade herb-flavored breadcrumbs plus eggs. I am going to make salmon patties this evening and have a small green salad and some corn on the cob.

Last night we went out to celebrate husband's early birthday (it was today, but today was also our first day of orientation at our respective schools). He had seitan chicken in a coconut curry sauce and vegan cherry amaretto "ice cream" and I had seitan beef in black bean sauce and vegan cookies 'n' cream "ice cream." And the restaurant gave us a slice of free "cheese"cake for his birthday.
He had leftovers tonight, and I had a quesadilla wedge and scoop of pasta from a mediocre "Mexican" restaurant ("Oh, yes, traditional Mexican baked ziti!" I said.) for free as part of orientation.

I pan-fried (really more like grilled, since I use a steel pan and just enough oil to keep the fish from sticking) a rainbow trout fillet, and boiled potatoes in seasoned water, and made a creamy sauce for both.  If I'd remembered to eat my salad with it, it would have been something I'd have expected to order in a restaurant.  Trout has now overtaken mahi mahi as a favorite fish.

Not dinner, but for breakfast I had a sandwich of a fresh egg over-easy and avocado on homemade sourdough. Messy but so good I can't wait to have it again tomorrow.

No idea... either what's left open at the food court or takeout from a local restaurant downtown...

Last night we ended up having pulled pork sandwiches with chips and spicy pickles. DS made brownies for dessert.

Tonight is steak, vegetables and potatoes.

I made a frittata with potatoes, ham, and mozzarella cheese.  It came our really well. The cheese was perfectly browned. It had the nice crunchy cheese edges.

The kids and I are making pizzas. When I told DS my plan, his expression was priceless! It was a mix of shock and amazement. I guess pizza is just a magical thing that appears when they're good. He had no idea we can make it at home :)
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz
