  1. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    More oral surgery for John yesterday. When the bleeding stopped he grazed..... some mashed potatoes with minced chicken and carrots in chicken gravy; thinned out sweet potato soup, So Delicious chocolate dipped vanilla bars........... IF we don't lose power his dinner will be a fresh salmon cakes.
  2. Breakfast! 2018

    John had more oral surgery yesterday so he needs something easy to eat for breakfast this morning. I just pulled baked oatmeal with blueberries out of the oven for him for when he gets up.* Will have leftovers to take to Poughkeepsie with him and I do believe he may use some to go with the vanilla coconut milk ice cream I got him yesterday. * @JoNorvelleWalker you would identify with him as his defacto bedtime is between 2am and 4 am.
  3. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    I smell a travel blog .....
  4. German restaurants on the wane in the US?

    Don't know about anywhere else but the one long term German restaurant here has meh food. Yeah you can get beer OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH can we say DWI? My husband and his buddies used to go and he would bring me some "leftovers" ..... one of his friends likes to order tons of appetizers to "share". I finally told him please don't bother to bring home the leftover spaetzel( stodge without salt), gravy (what , no ginger taste?!!) or sauerbraten ( no sauer in that braten!!!!) the only thing worth eating was the red cabbage and then they didn't bother including applesauce.

    I so second this!!! This is one place I really, really want to visit. Any paradors on the horizon? Or a visit to the ice cream shops?
  6. Where to eat in Newfoundland

    @ElsieD.......sorry. I haven't scrolled down so much in a while. We are making final plans but it looks like we will be up that way from about June 20 to about July 10. We are driving up as I have a problem flying. Showed Johnnybird the blog that I had read when you were up there last year and his only comment was ....why are there so many pictures of food? I want to see what the place looks like. Philistine. Any suggestions as to seafood would be appreciated. We are going to do quite a bit of birding/driving near the peninsula then up to the Viking area with a stop at Gander as my uncle was there and it means a lot to me and then back home. I want to see Campobello as I am a history person and see any kind of crafts/quilts .
  7. Gluten free cooking hacks

    thank you sooooo much. I use a lactose free cream cheese on occasion but looking at the recipe it won't work in that recipe. I am going to think about it and maybe be able to modify it a bit. There are a few gf items that do work and I am still working with some of the recipes I tested for the gf cookbook for America's Test Kitchen.
  8. Gluten free cooking hacks

    Thanks Anna.....not do able with the cream cheese since Johnnybird is also lactose intolerant.
  9. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

  10. Sonic Drive-In

    @Shelby remember I'M the person who NEVER has leftover pickle juice because I drink it!!! This is a new thing according to the article. Unlike @kayb I'm not a big kosher dill person but more a spicy bread and butter person.
  11. Sonic Drive-In

    Getting out of my Hotmail account just now one of the side bars was that this summer Sonic is going to offer pickle juice slushies. OH BE STILL MY HEART!!!!!! Now I just have to FIND a Sonic near me.
  12. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Stove Top savory herbs with sage sausage, cooked diced onion and apples. Long cooked green beans. Mashed potatoes and gravy....... I think I know what I am having for dinner tonight, Minus the meatloaf.
  13. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Tuna salad open faced sandwich on some bread heels. I never knew that tuna came in cans until I went to college * ... now I buy it in retort packs and every once in a while I crave it. Minced scallion, a little bit of chive, celery salt, minced spicy bread and butter pickles, Cain's mayo and a drizzle of slaw dressing. Mix well and taste. * growing up where I did it was called fish salad and was whatever fish was left over the next day. The best were blowfish or porgies IMHO.
