Tonight I was really tired so went simple, grilled cheese and Campbell's tomato soup.

Something that still surprises me... how easy it is to elevate something to a new level... like stirfry cabbage, a little fresh garlic and fresh ginger root puts it over the top. I bought a couple of cilantro plants yesterday. Tonight plain old campbell's soup tasted like a whole new food with just a little chopped cilantro. (the edges of my grilled cheese were extra crispy so I cut them off).

My brother marinated some pork chops in au jus miran (sp?) along with some garlic salt and other seasoning for a couple of days. He cooked them up and they were delicious. Very tender too. The ones that weren't marinated were a bit tougher and dryer.

I also celebrated the passing of a kidney stone by eating a mix of french vanilla ice cream, edible chocolate cookie dough, and chocolate syrup.

I made meatloaf tonight. It was really good, surprising since it's the first one I ever made. It was a simple recipe from one of my cookbooks. I made mashed potatoes also, pie for dessert.

I had a quesadilla (tortilla with butter and shredded 4 cheese mix).

I made scrambled eggs for Mom this morning and am waiting for her to want dinner but she's nauseous-- I think it may be a side effect of the vaccine. I'll see if she wakes up hungry and wants food.

Glad we are finished with the Burger's Smokehouse entree's. They were very high sodium--like more than I get in a day from a piece of chicken and a stuffed potato.

Tonight - grilled chicken, homemade dinner rolls, baked beans and a salad.

We're doing non-region specific Hispanic style food stuffs takeout (Mexican Takeout for those with thick skin).

It's a locally owned restaurant that offered free meals on Thanksgiving Day last year to any and all in need. If you wanted to pay, you could donate to the local food bank instead.

Wife and I said we would support them at least once a month until we moved or they closed, and neither looks like it's happening in the near future. ;)
Plus, they make killer shredded beef enchiladas too!

Ate at my cousins, and the main dish was a casserole of some type, had chicken, rice, doritos, cheese and bell peppers in it. Was tasty. Had a fruit salad...cut up fruit with blue jello. Also carrot sticks.
Dessert was cherry pie and dark chocolate cream pie. Because it's pi day.
