The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

We ate basa/swai (white fish) poached in Imagine chicken broth with sweet onions, steamed brocolli with Earth Balance dairy/soy/egg free mayonnaise, and Alexis rosemary olive oil (frozen) fries with the last piece of Lemon Poppyseed birthday (bundt) cake for dessert (recipe from gluten/dairy/soy/egg free baking book). That was from my husband's birthday just before Thanksgiving, but we've been eating my allergy free pumpkin pies (2) and 5 batches of Christmas cookies between his birthday and now. So we had one piece left in the freezer.

Tonight I had leftover Spaghetti Pie, reheats really nicely! :) I'm in the process of losing weight so it was just a small portion. 32 lbs down, 25 to go! :)

And that pie was good!! thanks for posting the recipe on the other thread. Hubs had 2 portions--always a good sign! :)

Tried my first gluten free bread tonight (Udi's white bread) and it was so good! I made it into garlic toast to go with my spaghetti I made which of course was made with gluten free pasta, sauce, etc.. I had a hard time stopping it was all so good! I'm a huge pasta/bread person so having something gluten free that can take the place I'm in heaven!! Loved EVERY bite of it all :) I'm only 10 days being gluten free but I must say its been amazing physically and my taste buds are NOT complaining, LOL

So glad you're enjoying it. Yes, it's good eats once you make a few changes. You might want to try Rudi's bread also. It's in the freezer section of health food stores.

For lunch today: Spaghetti squash with a sort of tomatoey/sour creamy sauce that I made up with stuff in my fridge LOL. Good stuff!

Gonna use the rest of the squash to try making the Squash Fritters they did on The Chew today. :) They used an egg/flour batter. Do you think it will work to just substitute cracker crumbs or something?

Boneless pork spareribs...hubby put them in a frying pan with some extra virgin olive oil, garlic, onion, salt and pepper. After they were down he added some broccoli florets to cook and we will serve it over white rice. If the little one doesn't like the broccoli I may put a sprinkle of melted cheese over it to see if she likes that.

I was really tired tonight. So I pulled out the last 2 (frozen) servings of my Thanksgiving leftovers soup. That included a butternut squash soup base to which I added carrots, celery, onions, kale, mushrooms, pumpkin (from a Halloween pumpkin) and leftover bits of Thanksgiving turkey. We had Seattle Brown (Ener-G Foods) crackers with the soup and ate Medjool dates for dessert. I often rely on my frozen 'planned-over' meals, because I hate cooking every night. When I do cook, I make (and freeze) enough for several meals in the future.

I made a soup using a chopped leek, 5 large stalks of chopped celery, 1/4 chopped cabbage with already cooked brown rice, a good bunch of shrimp and seaweed with a bunch of chopped parsley and 5 large cloves of minced garlic and a big dollop of gluten free miso. Tasty and lovely! Great for my ailing liver and gall bladder as well as everything else. My boyfriend, who is still nursing a cold, felt much revived after eating his soup too. We went to a Chinese market the other night and are reaping the rewards therefrom. I just made sure I got nothing edible from Japan or Korean ocean waters due to the continued problems at Fukishima polluting the Pacific from there to northern Alaska with radiation.
