The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

In theory my husband is bringing me some Tyson nuggets tonight. I have some Alexia sweet potato tots in the freezer too. Those will be supper tonight and probably tomorrow too.

 

I'm just thrilled right now that I can eat at all. I had a stupid lumbar puncture on Wednesday and got the headache when I got out of bed on Thursday when I tried to get out of bed. I talked the clinic into doing the blood patch today since they aren't open on weekends and usually force a 3 day wait. In plain English, there was no f'n way I was waiting til Monday. I'm allowed out of bed a little at a time now and don't get blinding, head exploding headaches. I do feel like I have an elephant on my back but I'll take it! And drugs... lots of drugs. It just feels so good not to be completely helpless anymore. I can get to the fridge for my own yogurt and drinks now and I should even be able to oven my own dinner tomorrow when I'm home alone. Best of all, I'm allowed to sit up enough to hold a book. :D

 

Oh, and if I don't see you again before you leave cause idk when you're going... have fun in Croatia and eat lots of sweets for me!

This is the recipe (I think) she threw at me when I was complaining about my MIL's sauce. It is positively divine. (I couldn't find veal so I used lamb... tragic!) http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/mario-batali/ragu-bolognese-recipe2/index.html

 

Also, here's a video of him making it because I'm a visual learner. That may be a lie, I may just have a crush on him and kinda think he's hot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqBqiGM1O54

 

Yes, I'm outta bed again. I can't take it any more, I'm going freaking crazy. I also can't eat cantaloupe out of the shell in bed cause its messy. Hubs got me one and cut it in half for me so I could have it whenever, all I needed was to go to the kitchen if I was home alone. He's so awesome. So naturally I end up here if I'm not in bed. :D

I made a meatless lasagne with bechamel for dinner (not my preference, but).. one of the friends helping us pack the PODS container today is a vegetarian. Bless his heart. I'd love to be a vegetarian, on principle, I guess....but I love meat, and meat loves me so that just ain't happening....(he also has anemia, some anxiety and cannot sleep ,,,why? hmm.....because he eats too much gluten and soy (blech)?hell yEAH!! , but he does not listen to ole IH and he has no wife to pester him about it either :lol: )  if I could slip him some liver somehow, I would.....he he he

Believe me, I will. We are going to a white truffle festival again, too, and will be consuming tons of fresh fish and seafood. We leave in 20 days and are gone for an entire month. :-)

We had venison Ropa Vieja over brown rice with zucchini pancakes (put some jalapeno peppers in there to make them interesting), homemade applesauce and a Romaine salad with balsamic vinaigrette.   Miniature Snickers Bar for desert.

That's good news. :D

 

Hubs brought me an Udi's frozen pizza tonight. It was... frozen pizza. It wasn't spectacular but it wasn't bad either. The problem though is that I ate the whole thing and was kinda still hungry. :ph34r: I suppose maybe I haven't been eating much lately and getting up and about a bit is giving me an appetite back. At any rate, I've probably been up about as long as I should be for now so I'm going back to lay around like a bum some more.

I decided that in anticipation of the new season of Grey's Anatomy starting I am watching the entire rest of the series start to finish. Today I should get through season 2 and part of 3 no problem. I was out of bed this morning earlier for like 45 whole minutes before the pain started. :D I still can't bend at all but whatever. I'm not dizzy any more either. I'm thinking between every 2 episodes I should be able to maybe do a few dishes. And wash my hair...

 

I'm also going to make some beefaroni today. My husband found a really great deal and bought a few cases of beefaroni for himself for 50 cents a can, brand name too. I know the stuff is terrible but I used to love it and now I want it again so I looked up a recipe and made him get all the stuff out for me so I don't have to bend and crap. I'll be home alone for like 10 hours today and I need something to eat and to do. I'm about half mad with boredom which is somehow worse now that I'm semi-mobile and sort of but not really self-reliant again.

Using up all the stuff in the fridge and it is very very fattening, but I work it all off....

About 100F today.

Not sure if these " oopsies" are good. Haven't tried them. Let me see if I can copy the recipe. Be right back

The recipe I have is this one but without sweetener

hey... if they come out looking great are they called "perfecties"?? 

 

YO ADDY!

 

I just bubble wrapped and duck- taped to death a package for you. 

It's something I know you can use and it will make you smile.

I'll send it out tomorrow.  :)

 

I'm pretty sure part of my finger may be stuck to the tape....now, you've got my DNA. Please don't use it to commit a crime. 

I would not make it in prison..... all that gluten and stuff... :unsure:(shudder)

So I made " Oopsies" . They are a bit bland with a fallen soufflé texture. I put salted sunflower seeds on a few and that was pretty good. We thought we might make them bite sized with a sprinkle of cooked bacon on top and maybe, when almost cooked, add a sprinkle of a sharp cheddar. They have a very fun texture so I could see putting some flavorful ham and cheese or salami and making a sandwich. This is what I did:

3 eggs

3.5 oz 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese ( softened)

Pinch of salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

separate eggs. Whip the egg whites with salt until very stiff . Mix the egg yolks and cream cheese and baking powder until smooth. Then fold the egg whites into the yolk mixture. Try not to stir out all the air. Glop onto a cookie sheet ( I think I would lightly grease next time). Add any seeds or maybe cooked bacon now.

Bake at 300F for 25 minutes ( I did about 17 minutes at 300 with convection on). They will brown on top.

Roasted vegetables:

 

1 parsnip

3 gold yukon potatoes

1 sweet potato

2 shallots

1/4 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon thyme

2 teaspoons rosemary

 

Everything chopped up no bigger than 3/4 inches, roasted @475 for 40 minutes, turning every 10 minutes.  It's surprisingly good for how simple it is :)

I'm very personality disorder about surprises. I love them, but I hate them. It could be because of my complete lack of patience I suppose. I'll have to refrain from bouncing around the house waiting and stick with watching too much tv and doing a few dishes as my stupid back permits.

 

Just keep reminding yourself that you won't do well in prison and it will get you through with the neighbors until you leave. :lol: Hope you survive your ordeal far better than I survived mine. Good luck! :wub:

 

I should be living with someone else for dinner. Tonight though I'm finally getting real cooked food again. I'm making my husband help me cook some pork chops, I'll probably just fry them because its easy and quick. And he brought me a honeydew I can make him cut up for me. And I sort of got him hooked on Grey's Anatomy now. *snicker*

Just put the pasta sauce in the slow cooker.  It has diced carrot, pumpkin, sweet potato, chopped onion and spinach, a sprinkling of chives, chopped tomatoes, garlic and lentils.  Will add the pasta later.  It's a new one, the one that Coles now has out, never tried it before so I'll cook that on the stove and see how it turns out, we have San Remo on standby but if this one works then that will be great, it's $3 for a big box.
