  1. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    got a jump on shoveling the 2" plus we got here overnight. not going out for my morning meeting as I have to uncover my car yet. starving so just got the coffee going, the leftover potato wedges are cut up and ready to go into a pan but more importantly diced onion and some Mary Kitchen corned beef hash is slowly working a crust and eggs are ready to hard scramble.
  2. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Last year I asked our local Shoprite if they could get some other kinds of fish.....like Arctic char which is one of my favorites. Lo and behold this week they have it. I grabbed a filet yesterday and sautéed it then served with roasted potato wedges and steamed broccoli hollandaise. Leftovers for lunch later.
  3. Santa's Spectactular Tonawanda Workshop

    @patris....went to school at SUC Fredonia. Loved both the Fredonia style and the Buffalo style beef on weck......especially the weck!!!!!! I learned to make it myself since you can't get it east of Syracuse. we used to go to Schwable's in Buffalo but a college friend lived near Swiston's and we would stop there after we went up to the falls on the way back home. I still make Italian beef for sammies but it is more Chicago style.

    OK.....so make a roasted vegetable sandwich on a weck roll. Or slater the pimento cheese on one.

  6. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    on this snowy Saturday(sorry dear Shelby) turkey vegetable chili for me and a chicken stew for John. It is one I am testing for someone and the only comment I got was that it didn't have enough potatoes to protein. He did say the spices/veg were good. I explained...yet again...when testing I have to make the recipe to specs so I can identify any problems. Now, for him, I can make extra potatoes and some carrots to add to the stew . Also making some green beans to add as asked. OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!! He is asking for some veg it IS a Christmas miracle. (sorry for being so snarky).
  7. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

  8. Food after Dental Work

    @MetsFan5 ohhhhh how I can relate. I had MAJOR dental surgery done 7 years ago. I used balanced supplements and greek yoghurt with fruit purees, soups like split pea and butternut. Applesauce, mashed sweet or white potatoes, well cooked green beans, miso soup all worked well. My favorite though brought me back to my childhood Beech - nut used to make this fruit thing with tapioca. When Johnnybird had a major infection and came close his Thanksgiving dinner went into the blender. Hang in there

    Flying trip to up the Hudson Valley for my FIL's 85 birthday dinner. Great family time ... OK restaurant food. Back to reality today. John is off to climb rock today. He will have had a lot of protein for breakfast and lunch and I had nothing thawed out. OK time to run some ideas by HIMSELF......... He agreed to something vegetarian (just not too much fiber .....hey, baby steps). Roasted butternut squash, shallots and carrots, capers, olives, artichoke hearts with some homemade unconventional pesto I liberated from the freezer - walnuts, avocado oil, home grown basil and flat-leaf pasta) and his gluten free penne.
