  1. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Sunday we had to check on bluebird boxes for our annual Bluebird Survey so I roasted off two chicken breasts. John got a sandwich on his gluten free bread with avocado smushed up with celery salt and Miracle Whip (and two for the road). My lunch was the leftover bits of the chicken that didn't go between the bread with the leftover avocado spread. I snarfed it with some oat and flax crackers as we checked all the boxes.
  2. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    Thanks @Norm Matthews....tonight's dinner will be tacos instead of poor man's stew which has been pushed to lunch in about 30 minutes. I do love tacos especially if I have enough chili lime hot sauce and cheese to go on them (no lettuce - too expensive right now). @Shelby can I come visit? I really want some good fried chicken and Johhnybird does not allow frying in the house. Most of the places around here deep fry but yours looks like a shallow fry in a cast iron skillet. I keep trying to get to Hotel Chalfonte in Cape May when we are down the shore but keep missing them....
  3. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    It has once again become cool and dreary here. John has gone to help a friend who is facing stem cell harvesting for his multiple myeloma. I don't feel like cooking or eating at this point... BUT it is important so I have some parsnips, carrots, leeks, shallots, garlic and small potatoes. Have some bones to make stock with and then it will be poor man's stew for tomorrow. Last night's dinner was green eggs and ham (pesto, eggs, Black Forest ham) on a toasted English muffin ..... again.
  4. Interesting ... here in NW NJ last Tuesday I noticed there was no iceberg lettuce available in either of the markets I go to and only yucky(brownish/slimy) leaf lettuce, the two main kinds I use. Did not see Boston at all and the Romaine heads were a 3 pack of Andy Boy for almost $7.00. We are not quite into good lettuce time here - maybe about 3 weeks away - so I took some heartier greens and didn't do lettuce salads or anything on sandwiches this week. Even the two Asian/Spanish markets and very little green produce....didn't notice cauliflower at all and green beans were 1.69 per pound.
  5. Switchell

    Just had ginger and honey switchell for the first time 2 weeks ago. It actually had the finely shredded ginger pulp in it. I strained it out for Johnnybird and added it back to my glass. Very refreshing...can't wait to hear how your experiment goes.

  14. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Just stating an opinion...maybe I'm a smidgen Italian afterall as the thought f cheese and seafood puts me off
  15. I still to this day make extra potatoes of any kind.... baked or boiled become hash browns or eggy potatoes or topping for a cottage pie or part of a fish cake(sorry folk -,from the east coast so NOT salmon)
