    Default Dinner Tonight


    Found a really nice boneless leg of lamb at Costco today, decent price. Made
    a nice rosemary/garlic rub, salt, pepper etc. It's cooking now, and smells
    wonderful. I will have a large salad with it. Mmmmmmm, I love lamb. DH
    doesn't like it, so will be able to use it up in many different ways for
    myself and my dog. My dog is salivating too, on high alert. :-)

    Sounds good. We're have pork roast florentine from Trader Joe's. A
    small serving of red potatoes and a salad.

    Nothing formally planned for tonight. We have to leave for the dance studio
    soon. This is Angela's long night. So normally I would just drop her off.
    But being that it is the first week of the year and things change, I want to
    be there tonight. So I have made a sandwich on honey whole wheat bread from
    Costco. Kirkland brand turkey on it with some Smart Balance Light, a thinly
    sliced plum tomato and some bits of lettuce that I pulled from Angela's
    salad bowl.

    She is having some leftover chicken, a sweet potato and a green salad.

    I offered to make something for husband but he declined. So he will be on
    his own. There is a sandwich in there, plenty of raw fruits and veg,
    hummus, yogurt, cheese, a bit of leftover fried rice and 3 little
    Chimichangas.

    Not sure what we will have tomorrow. We'll be going to Winco. The past few
    weeks we have found super good deals on pre-made sandwiches that were going
    to expire the following day. So I might just pick up sandwiches for Angela
    and husband. Depends on how the dance classes go really. There is some
    confusion about one class and if things go the way they say they will (I
    still need to talk to the teacher), then Angela will be dropping that class.
    If she does, we will go shopping then come home and eat. If she takes the
    class, we won't get out of there until 6:30. In that case we will likely go
    out to eat before we shop. Otherwise we will just be too hungry and that
    won't be good.

    I plan to make a big pot of chili for myself after my husband leaves. He
    will actually eat my chili and I don't want him to because it would be bad
    for his gout. Angela used to like chili but then she just went off of it
    and now won't touch the stuff.

    Angela's favorite meal right now is chicken and a sweet potato. So I plan
    to just buy a lot of that for her, cook it up and have her eat the
    leftovers. Then if she wants something else she can have a sandwich.

    Then I'll figure something else out for the next week. My goal for the time
    being is to eat as cheaply as possible. This is working for me but not
    really for the other two. Of course I guess if I wanted to go really cheap
    it would be Ramen but I hope it never comes to that. Beans and veg will do
    quite well.

    That sound really good too. I haven't been to TJ's in awhile, is the pork
    roast frozen and ready to go? I think they have some really good stuff
    there.

    It was from the frozen food case. I really like Trader Joe's. I just
    wish my town had one. I end up going to Stockton or Modesto.

    Yup. It's real nice since they expanded the size of the store. We go
    about once a month and hit the bike shop and art store that are both
    right there too.

    I end up with cats on either side of me, just staring.

    I got one a few weeks ago, cubed it and marinated in lemon juice, EVOO,
    Greek oregano and smashed garlic, s and p. Froze half, grilled half as
    shish kebab with heirloom tomatoes, onions and peppers, had it with
    tzatziki and low carb pitas.

    Have the second batch defrosting in the fridge, now.

    I'll have to check it out soon. The only thing I don't like about TJ's
    is...there's so much to look through, and so much I want to buy, that I have
    to stop myself from buying some of the goodies. :-)

    I can't wait for cooler weather, I love soups and stews and chili. Hubby had
    lasagna tonight and I had some canned soup and a salad. Tomorrow will be
    store bought rotisserie chicken (I have a Dr.s appointment and will be gone
    most of the day.)

    I know. I try to limit myself on the goodies. I also try to remember
    to bring the insulated bags so things don't thaw on the way back to
    Tracy.

    I was really mad when we left Alameda. They were putting what appeared to
    be a huge one into the mall there. They were still in the "putting in"
    phase when we left. I have never lived near one. We have a little one in
    Lynnwood and another little one in Everett but I don't buy enough there to
    warrant going that distance.

    Our cats love to watch us cook and they like to sniff the food. But they
    never beg for anything. Oddly enough not even for tuna and that is their
    favorite food. They seem to only want cat food. We have two bar stools in
    the kitchen so they can sit there and watch us cook. They are not allowed
    on the counters.

    I love soup! I only wish the rest of the family did too. Angela does like
    this very expensive soup imported from Italy. I did some research, bought
    all of the ingredients and was very proud of myself for recreating the soup.
    Tastes just like the jarred soup. Well... Guess who wouldn't eat it? Yep.
    Said it was yucky.

    Once in a great while I can get her to eat some plain tomato soup. I have
    not tried to make tomato soup. I know she would not like it. I used to
    make tomato and barley soup. I love it but it used to raise my BG too high.
    I recently bought some barley to try again. But I'm sure she won't like it.

    I like to clean out the fridge and make soup. But I'm the only one who
    likes it.

    If it was sunday I might meet with some other folks and we'd have bagels, lox,
    creamcheese, onions and possibly tomatoes with orange juice. We might have some
    bialys but not that frequently.

    I had beans and franks with bbq sauce added to the pork and beans and
    catsup on the fried hotdogs, very tasty, didn't test.
