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.

      Last day of vacation tomorrow. All hell breaks loose again Tuesday. I figure I'll sleep somewhere around spring break, if I'm lucky. If not, it'll be the end of May. Not sure what this summer will hold for school and teaching...guess I'll find out!

      Today I took my daughter and her best friend to San Francisco and the highlight of our trip was meeting a leash-trained cat named Dotty Parton on the city bus. It was an amazing day!

      If you're in the massive winter storm in the eastern US, stay safe! We're cuddled up watching our expected 12-15 inches of snow fall. ❄️ ❄️❄️😳

      Book recommendation: Mary Jane, by Jessica Anya Blau. An awesome coming-of-age story of a teen who grew up in an uptight, ultra conservative Christian family discovering freedom and joy when working as a nanny for a free-spirited family. Best of all? Mary Jane’s last name is Dillard.

      Thanks to the menopause, I'm a sleep deprived hag.  Night sweats can do one!  Am waiting for a consultation with the GP for some HRT.

      I just got a Christmas card in the post from my grandparents. They’re not the forgetful type, so Royal Mail must be really fucked right now.

      I hate writing syllabi. Have to have the whole semester done by class time Tuesday (previous teacher did not write a syllabus). Also have to have their research paper assignment written up too. That'll be due around week 14 so I have time to read/grade them. Also have to refresh my own skills in a few areas. Oh well, at least they're paying me quite well for this.
