Tuna casserole. Not the kind with noodles and chips, the kind with potatoes out of a box.

Last night of eating on my own.

Axial tilt is the reason for the season.

I have gotten hooked on those big bags of Birds-Eye frozen vegetable mixes, teriyaki and thai, from Wal-Mart, thrown in a stir-fry pan with shrimp or anything else I have in the house.

So quick, good for you, low in carbs.

I don't use the flavor packets. I use my own.

Kittehs are sold by weight, not by volume. Some settling may have occurred.

TACOS!

I should have had Thai beef and coconut rice, here by myself.

A missed opportunity.

"New Orleans, she smells like summer rain, sweet olive and coffee." -Chris Rose

BBQ chicken with some sort of veg. Plus rice pudding made with yesterday's leftover rice.

Oh, for crying out loud.

Roast chicken tonight. Last night we had deconstructed cottage pie; deconstructed because we didn't wind up eating until around 10 and I ran out of steam and didn't feel like covering the meat with mash and running it under the broiler.

Sport death. Only life can kill you.

Some stuffed shell thing from last month's Everyday Food. Which Brigid is hissying about because it's not HER lasagna shells. Her lasagna shells appear to be large shells with sauce and parmesaon and maybe (MAYBE) some sausage inside and nothing outside. Some sort of version of the Chinese dumpling with the soup inside or something. She can't understand why no one else is enthusiastic about trying to help her cook this made up thing....

Quiche Lorraine. It was delish, if I do say so myself....

Honey, if any woman thought a gorgeous guy was going to rescue her, romance novels wouldn't be forty percent of the publishing industry.

I just created the most awesome dish. Was like a vegetable curry with lentils. Onion, carrot, peas, pumpkin, quite a bit of cauliflower and a LOT of lentils. Add curry powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, chili, garlic, a bit of stock. Served with yogurt & zucchini. SO GOOD. (Served without rice.)

Sport death. Only life can kill you.

I rejoined the Six o'Clock Scramble for 3 months. Tonight we're having something she calls Grecian Delight and describes as a cross between moussaka and pastichio--sauteed sliced zucchini and onion mixed with cook orzo, topped with a thick meat sauce (we used ground turkey instead of lamb for Brigid's sake) with tomato and cinnamon, topped with crumbled feta and baked for 20 minutes.

Last night Dave had had a bad day, was late picking me up, so we were late picking Brigid up, and everybody arrived home hungry and in foul moods. So he dragged us out for Indian food. Which was very good for us. The kids just picked. It didn't really improve MY mood therefore....

Hollywood party cougar

Tonight is a picnic-style dinner, as it's Movie Night on the lawn at W's school. My plan is to run to Whole Paycheck and pick up some items suitable for grazing, plus wine.

Oy.

Skettis!

(as Betty calls it.)

Life is too short for bad coffee.

Chicken sausage, peppers and tomatoes over angel hair, mixed greens.

I myself have a quarrelsome and disputatious nature.

I also roasted a chicken. I bought two organic birds together in a package at Costco, so I froze the first carcass and am now making stock with both. Should be good.

Guess who picked dinner?


Chicken strips, sweet potato fries and broccoli.

Sport death. Only life can kill you.

The Greek casserole was quite good. Carl ate a helping. Brigid claimed to not like zucchini OR feta (never thought I'd see a cheese she didn't like) and just picked at the meat. Then ate 3 heaping spoonfuls of peanut butter....

Tonight will probably be cassoulazy.

Would you mind sharing the recipe for the Greek casserole?

Sweet potato fries is one of those things that would be on my food drop list if I am ever banished to a deserted island. I think I could live on sweet potatoes alone.

Thank goodness for my friends at Franzia!

Was it any good? 'Cause it sounds like a bastardization of both, and not a great one...
