Oven roasted sliced potatoes (dill, lemon herb, olive oil, scallions) topped with red sea bream fish stuffed with garlic, leeks, fresh lemon sage topped with lemon slices, carrots steamed with coconut syrup, sautee medley of panchetta bits, sweet onion slices, baby bell peppers and baby spinach ... For my menfolk....... For me a no sodium, no fat vegetable broth with a puree of tomato, protein powder and a dollap of 0% fat yogurt
It's a steak night tonight for my menfolk... So I am Ali rubbing some nice strip loins, dressing up some baked spuds, fire roasting some orange bell peppers, can't have steak without tarragon sauteed button mushrooms, mini pitas with a quick cucumber yogurt dip......... For me...protein shake with blueberry kefir, protein powder and a 1/4c unsweetened jello
Long day at work so it was a quick dinner to try and get the kids in bed on time. Which didn't work but we did get to enjoy some yummy home made pan cakes. Breakfast for dinner. Would have been a bit better with sausage but it was far from planned and the sausage were in the freezer.
The menfolk got fish tacos tonight... Pan seared filet of sole and golden eye bream with chili infused olive oil, lime & jalepeno creme sauce, tequilla smoked pepper salsa, mexican slaw, fresh guacamole... Warmed flour tortillas
for me: sweet potato and yogurt soup with protein powder.... Oh I eat delicacy
My wife and I spent the late afternoon at a local neighbourhood pub with some good childhood
school friends that we've not seen for at least 40 years. Time went by so quickly that other
then sharing a platter of varied titbits and a couple of ales, none of us considered or really wanted
supper. Now, at nearly 10 pm, we're home and scrounging for something out of the fridge....looks
like it's going to be sausage and eggs or grilled cheese sandwiches.
We had a couple of the kids over around 4... they wanted crackers and cheese, finger food... a few snacks later and not hungry for supper.......9:30 was so hngry... ended up going to bed instead of eating.....4am comes too early sometimes!!:biggrin-new:
Tonight my hardworking menfolk will be dining on slow roasted fall apart beef roast in a smoked garlic mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes whipped fluffy topped scallions and bacon bits. Spicy grean beans steamed and herbed yellow zucchini rounds....... For lil ole me, I get puree of mushroom soup followed later for a snack no sugar no fat vanilla pudding (thank you for stevia, I can now have herbal sweetner .... No more aspartame crap
Hang in there Alison - it will get better. It might take a bit of time, but it will get better.
We, too, had thick cut pork chops. Except mine had been marinating in a teriyaki sauce for a couple of days. Steamed veggies to take up that small corner left on the plate, and I'm fed up - if you get my meaning....:rolleyes:
so for tonight I have supper already planned for the menfolk..... Yesterday while prepping supper... I came up with a new idea for a meat rub/seasoning... I am always playing with my herbs and spices... I came up with a greek style blend which will be great for lamb/chicken/beef or of course game meats. I have rubbed up a nice thick 4" cut prime rib steak overnight which will hit the grill for todays supper. Along with greek salad, lemon potatoes, dolmades, stuffed zucchini, mediterranean bell peppers
for me: not too sure... I think it's a play it by ear (or stomach) day ... Hoping to tollerate some soup broth with protein powder
