I'm having spinach and feta cheese pierogies brushed with garlic butter and broiled until the outside is browned and just barely crisp with a bowl of beef stew spiced with green seasonings.

I had dinner twice tonight:

Dinner 1: Nasi, Indonesian dish which is basically rice with curry powder, leek, ham, egg, and pepper.

Dinner 2: pork, massed potatoes, corn, some sort of stuffing, and strawberry pie.

Pineapple jelly and a glass of Milo, the grocery store closed while I was procrastinating in the Internets.

EDIT:

I've found out Milo is not as well known as I supposed. It's a chocolate and malt milk drink made by Nestlé. More info in Wikipedia.

Franchise Fried Chicken. We donated a house to the local Living History museum, and today was the big move. Afterwards, nobody was interested in any sort of dinner that required effort or, you know, thought...

Hmmm ... a bottle of champaign with a homemade casserole. The casserole consists of lean ground turkey, pinto beans (not canned), barley, tomato sauce and paste, Vegeta, other spicing, tomatoes, chives, onions, spinach, Kraft fat free cheddar cheese, and a crust (not really crusty) made from oatmeal, Vegeta, and other spicing I don't remember (Mrs. Tweety's ad hoc recipe). Quite good all together, and very low fat. Oh, yes, we picked up some exotic tomatoes at the store and made a tomato salad (tomatoes, salt, chives).

Our normal salad consists of tomatoes, cucumber, chives, salt and radish.

We've moved away from almost all processed foods as well as anything containing high fructose and regular corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, and we're attempting to get away from modified corn/food starches.

Oh, for desert I'm working on perfecting a chocolate oatmeal donut hole recipe (hmmm ... donuts; addicting little buggers). Oatmeal, brown sugar, cocoa, vanilla and a couple of other things I can't think of right now. The recipe also works well for good ol' fashioned oatmeal raisin cookies.

Tomorrow being Friday, we might do the good but cheap pizza from our local grocer. Junk night!

A pizza with goat cheese, spinach & caramelized onions. It was tiny, about 6 inches and was $8. But the goat cheese was so rich it filled me up. Got it at a cafe by work www.alpenroserestaurant.com

I think I might go for one of my favourites, Chicken Risotto with mushroom, red, green and yellow capsicum (Bell peppers to USians).

Got some of the first home grown asparagus today and made a crab and asparagus quiche type tart with it, quite rich so served with just a green salad.

For supper, I nibbled at the misery of existence... for dessert, I drank a litre of my own bedtime tears... tomorrow I may take a trip to the Diner of Despair.

Oh, and I might grab a pizza on the way. [Wink]

Last night I ate a grilled chicken sandwich with lettuce, tomato, swiss cheese and ranch dressing on a whole wheat bun. I had a lemonade with it and baked potato chips. Tonight I am hoping we get take out from Chili's so I can have some baby back ribs.

Well, considering I have a gastric bypass 3 and a half weeks ago, it looks like a small portion of some sort of meat purée with mashed potatoes or creamed rice. This followed by either a yoghurt or a dessert cream.

Oh, dropped about 12 kilos so far.

Pizza - garlic, shrooms, fresh basil, too much cheese.

...and maybe a little alcohol [Smile]

+1 Grummash. If there's no alcohol, it's not really a "meal".

We had pizza last night. I forwent my usual wine and had a delicious bottle or two of "Circus Boy" from Magic Hat.

We had friends over to watch 4400 tonight and made pizza (from scratch, crust and sauce too). Mine was sweet red pepper, red and green jalepeno, red onion, black olive, and pineapple. Maswan's tomato sauce is excellent btw. His secret ingredient is fresh ginger.

Next weekend we are grilling. I am excited. First BBQ of the year.

Cool. I didn't know you were having that done. I take it you're stoked with the results so far?
