Butternut squash, okra, tomato and cannelini beans cooked with cajun spices and olive oil and a little vegetable broth, over couscous.

We went to a Greek restaurant. I had dolmades and moussaka with salad. Delicious and heaping portions. A return visit is being planned!

Homemade pizza - deep dish biscuit crust, mushroom & cheese. I can hear the mushrooms frying as I type.

We're having pork roasted with potatoes, onions, bell peppers and mushrooms. Not sure on the marinade for the pork yet, I know I want to do SOMETHING to flavour it. I asked in Recipe Requests  :). This board is absolutely great. For dessert I'm going to make an apple crumble. So excited!

I think I'm going to get Korean fried chicken and have some wine to wash it down

I love Korean Fried Chicken - had that in NYC when we visited a year ago.  We went to a little out of the way - non touristy dive .  Boys ( who are adopted Korean ) told the waiter ( who was also Korean - family place ) - that they could eat them hot.  They were super hot .. but delicious ..... can't find any place close to me in Boston.

Lots of cooking today ...

Breakfast - made the tastiest breakfast burritos - onions, peppers, hash browns, beans, hot salsa and scrambled egg wrapped in a tortilla - then crisped up in a skillet..  Topped with some chopped avocado ...

Lunch - Homemade asian inspired noodle soup.  Made the broth in my crockpot, poured hot broth over rice noodles, chopped spinach, shredded cabbage and carrots and cilantro. 

Dinner - marinated strip steak with sauteed mushrooms, onions, peppers / roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli salad.  Homemade Garlic Bread for the boys and fresh pineapple for dessert.  I don;t really eat red meat - but I had a few bites of steak and filled up on lovely sides.  Cutting back on carbs - so no garlic toast for me  :'(

I made the most delicious mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy I've ever made in my life. I don't know why they were so good; I didn't do anything different than usual. That actually makes me really sad because I can't recreate a fluke.
DH grilled some steaks...super yummy!
and I supervised the kids (3 and 5 yo) in making an apple pie that turned out very good, just a little heavy on the cloves :)
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
