Fridge cleaning dinner of random leftovers: crab cakes, green beans, baked sweet potato, and the last of the key lime pie from Thanksgiving.

I've been writing papers all weekend, so I've been eating whatever I can snatch out of the fridge and consume with one hand, mostly. Tonight I've had a cup of hot chocolate and an apple.

Same here. I'm finishing up a research paper and cramming for finals this week. Tonight was Coke Zero, fortune cookies, a banana, and strawberries.

I've had Ramen for the first time after a looong time of abstinence. I was so lazy today I thought heating up water for the noodles already cost me so much energy, I immediately had to lie down for a quick nap after "dinner".

Roasted eggplant, mashed, seasoned (salt, turmeric, cayenne), and fried with copious onion and garlic. Rice.

I also made dinner for tomorrow night, since we'll be traveling: what Yotam Ottolenghi calls "ultimate winter couscous." It packs well and is super-tasty: http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle ... ink.recipe

I substitute sweet potato for squash, since we both prefer it.

RachelB, that couscous looks grand! It looks like a nice change from my typical curried Mediterranean version.

Tonight's offering was a couple sushi rolls at my local joint.

last night was one of my fiance's favourite of simple meals: chili dogs with cheese and seasoned potato wedges.

tonight...i'll probably throw a pizza in the oven when i get home. we're both exhausted and just have no energy to do anything lol.

my plan for this weekend is making up his cubed steaks the way he likes it :D last time i tried there was some, uh, miscommunication (more like "cultural differences" lol), and while dinner was still good, it wasn't quite what he was wanting. :P

Last night, bean soup with sunflower seed bread.

Tonight, we're having friends over. I'm making artichoke-ricotta dip with crudites, a Greek-inspired rice pilaf, cucumber salad dressed with yogurt and mint. Something citrusy for dessert.

New Year's Day we went in the city for bbq. Hubby downed a rack of ribs, and slaw. Last night I made pasta bolognese and marinated vegetables. Today hubby's tummy says it'll be a rice-based dish for dinner.

today was crock-pot night: salsa chicken in the big one, and apple crumble in the little one.

Please share your apple crumble recipe. Could it be sized down to a 16oz crock?

hi! it's actually a heavily modified commercial recipe from the crock-pot company, but here's my version--

1 pint of apple pie filling (I had canned my own using Mrs. Wages mix; form walmart or tractor supply)

package of yellow cake mix

2/3 to 3/4 stick margarine

put pie filling in crock

melt butter and blend with cake mix (go less for slightly drier crumble; I like it that way) and add to crock

cook on low 3 - 4 hrs, high for 1.5 - 2 hrs

serves 4, add ice cream or whipped cream as desired

my crock is sized for 1 - 2 people, but you could easily cut it in half for a smaller one.

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
