Come as you are party: what did you REALLY eat for dinner last night? - Page 3

post #61 of 87

DH and I are watching what we’re eating, he’s lost 13 pounds in two weeks, me, well…

 

 

This was dinner tonight. I roasted a huge Turkey Breast and portioned it off for multiple meals.  I added sautéed fresh spinach with garlic and Olive oil and Hawaiian or Okinawa Sweet Potatoes .  See the purple, that’s the potato, delish!!!

 

 

To start the meal off we had a smallish bowl of my Stuffer Pepper Stoup.

I haven't posted here in a while mostly because I haven't gotten in the kitchen a lot lately. 

 

Last night decided to get creative I guess, and cut down some bacon into small bits and cooked it mixed it with some cream cheese Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Stuffed that in a chicken breast, breaded it with a little panko and cooked it in a pan then finished off in the oven. Was incredibly delicious but very rich so I had a simple side salad with a little lemon juice on top (I don't eat dressing) 

 

Turned out rather good, and felt amazing to be back in the kitchen

Just got back from vacation. So I haven't posted a lot. Tonight we are having Salmon, just not sure how I want to prepare it. It is 12 degrees outside so I'm not looking forward to grilling. Perhaps I will blacken it on the stovetop and finish in the oven.

Those last couple of pictures look really good!  I did a beef stroganoff with oyster mushrooms over rice, with asparagus.  The asparagus didn't look that great, but it wasn't bad with butter and a splash of balsamic.  I'm looking forward to some better stuff as we get into spring.

I know this sounds very pedestrian to some of the folk here at CT, but DH and I have been on a very restrictive diet for well, him 8 weeks and me 6.  I made a pork loin roast with garlic-pa-loosa, roasted Yukon gold potato wedges and fresh string beans and BUTTER!!!  Dessert, yes desert, was Baileys Irish Cream and Coffee brownies.  We have not eaten such tasty goodness (other than the green beans, no butter, plain jane) in a while and it was beyond good!

We had a very busy day, went to Costco to do our quarterly shopping expedition.  So, I thought ahead and got one of their rotisserie chicken, cheap and friendly!  I added some fresh zucchini, sautéed with shallots, garlic and sweet Red Bell Peppers that were roasted and leftover.  Throw in a tomato and onion salad with a load of fresh flat leaf Italian Parsley and you’ve got dinner Friends!

Didn't feel like cooking much last night, so it was scrambled eggs with some smoked trout, on toast with fresh tomato slices.  Just what we felt like as it turns out.

Tomato and avocado salad; herbed (parsley, garlic-chives) hamburger steaks, cooked rare, with red onion marmalade; green beans with macadamias; sourdough bread (from the supermarket); egg-cream.

approx. 2 kilos of my bitter spice, dry rub ribs. My wife thinks there should be some kind of vegetable with that but I disagree.

post #77 of 87

That chicken is from Costco, Pollopicu

It was kind of a cheat night.  I made up an entrée salad with assorted greens, sweet red bell peppers, radishes, sweet onion, heirloom tomatoes, hot house cucumbers and anchovy fillets (for DH not me thank you) alongside a small scoop of prepared salads from Whole Pay Check, I mean Whole Foods, which we visited the other day.  At the bottom of the plate is Israeli couscous with fresh basil, some wonderful Chinese chicken salad, a multi-grain salad and then couscous with the flavors of a Greek salad.  It was actually very filling for a cold salad plate.  (it's getting warm here in the middle of the desert already)

Well K-girl. That's simply an amazing salad.

Love anchovies!

 

And couscous was part of our dinner tonight, a sort of stir fry with chicken, sweet peppers and mushrooms over a bed of couscous.  I didn't put that much thought and effort into the sauce - it showed.  Oh well.

I really enjoyed the Israeli couscous, it had some fresh dill weed, whole leaf basil, some kalamata pitted olives and red onion (other thing too but they didn't stand out to me).  During the warmer months here in the middle of the desert, we have large entree salads, usually a mish mash of whatever I can find in the larder... DH newest fav, anchovies from Italy (in a little jar packed in oil), he claims they're 'meatier', no thank you, I'm not a fan of them whole like that...

post #82 of 87

Anchovies Rule!

 

Gotta have 'em on a pizza

Gotta have 'em on grilled cheese toast

Gotta have 'em in a Caesar

Gotta have 'em on a hard boiled egg

Gotta have 'em with a fork straight from the jar!

 

Just gotta have 'em tongue.gif

 

Believe it or not, no fish were harmed in last night's dinner.  Just simple wet rubbed roast chook & winter veg,gravy from pan juices.  Chook again tonight but on boiled rice with something green.  The green is my token healthy attempt.

Last Sunday I watched back-to-back episodes of 'The Iron Chef Tournament of Champions' .... and washed down left over Little Caesars with some boxed Chardonnay that I'd bought on sale.

I felt like a Peeping Tom.   : )

Don't post in this thread often, but I thought I'd start!  Forgot to take pictures, but we had a som tum style salad where I subbed in julienne asparagus stalks and carrots for green papaya, then topped it with some grilled shrimp, and the asparagus tops which I also grilled.  With a little more time and a little less emphasis on the calorie count I would have quickly fried those asparagus tops to get them crispy around the edges, but that is for another day.

Sounds good Jay. My little lunch today: pastrami sandwich with rustic hummus.
