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.

We ate like middle schoolers- grilled cheese and penguin shaped chicken nuggets.

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

Tonight we dine on Frito Pie.

That's what happens when you let teenagers make the menu and do the shopping.

My return to the stove led to grilled steelhead trout, sauteed kale, and roasted butternut squash.

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.

Lol, every time I pop into this thread I just had ramen. The Pretzels will have duck, orange sauce, red cabbage and croquettes for dinner, though.

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.

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.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.

      While in bed, two ants appear on my arm. Instead of approaching this logically, I spray the ant spray straight behind my nightstand.
      Unventilated.
