  • We had stir-fried chicken, snow peas and noodles.  Delicious.

    QOTW: I am thinking about this because I really do have friends asking what they can bring me when I'm in the hospital.  Right now I have a lobster roll and a chai latte on my list (not necessarily together).

    Umm...McDonalds in the car. The kids had soccer practice that ran late so I ran through McDonalds on the way home. My Quarter Pounder with no pickles was delicious.  :)

  • @ball.and.chain Lobster rolls are my heart's desire. Cor, I need those. Dinner tonight is French Onion soup. I'm caramelizing the onions now. I just used the food processor for the first time and, boy howdy, does that speed it along. I had never used any of the fancy blades until my MIL came and grated cheese in the thing. What-what?! Awesome. I just cook 4-6 yellow onions, add water and beef bullion, then dashes of umami things: shoyu, Worcestershire, Dijon, balsamic. Bowl it, add cubes of toasted, cubed bread and cheese. Ideal is gruyere, but I have Swiss today. It will work. Heaven in a bowl! QOTW: After a month in the hospital, I have to say that I will I always dig real sub sandwiches and pink lemonade for a great hospital treat. Not Subway, but REAL subs. Dang good. Or a Philly cheese steak.

The story on the other hand can never be lost from its place in the world for it is that place.” ― Cormac McCarthy, The Crossing

    Right???  So good.  Hawaii doesn't seem like a good place to get one, though!

    Also totally agree about French Onion Soup.  And the food processor.

I will put the website under each one if anyone is interested

    Monday-Ravioli Bianca Bake w/Tomato-Artichoke Salad

    Tuesday- Homestyle Chicken Tender Bake (did not make the dessert on the placard)

    Wednesday Went out for Chinese 

    Thursday- Hearty Shrimp and Roasted Vegetables

    Friday- Chicken Tortellini Bake (w/ banana cake bon bons for dessert)

    Saturday-Baked Spaghetti with Italian Side Salad

    Sunday Tacos (duh)

  • We had spaghetti last night.  It was something easy and M loves spaghetti, so it is something she will actually eat without a huge fight.  We also gave M a few plain noodles, she loved them!  We have been giving her a little bit of chunks of food that we eat, but nothing too salted, sweet or spicy.  M is trying mostly plain veggies, fruit and plain stuff like pasta.  She is still eating her baby food and eats like a champ!
