  1. Beef stroganoff (Lily cut up the mushrooms for me), and steamed broccoli. Lily asked me for leftovers for lunch tomorrow. She will get some in her thermos. She is giddy about it.
  2. Linguini and clams (white sauce)

  3. Red Beans and Rice, quartée red beans, quartée rice,
    Little piece of salt meat to make it taste nice,
    Lend me the paper and tell me the time,
    When papa passes by he’ll pay you the dime

  9. Last night I made a triple batch of homemade spaghetti sauce, so we had spaghetti and a green salad with dressing of choice.

    Tonight we are having slow cooked round steak with mushrooms and onion, mashed potatoes with gravy, and green beans.

  10. 1mach1 -
    Is that meant to be folded in half, soft-taco style, or is it eaten flat and open face?

  12. It is meant to be folded in half. The tatziki was on the side. Don't worry, I used it all.

    Girlfriend will be here on Saturday for a fun filled week.

  14. I was in Greece for three weeks in 2015. I have yet to find any Greek style food here in the US that even comes close to how it is over there. World of difference.

    Pub grub grilled shrimp and my barkeep is bringing her husband's bakery pecan coffee cake for me.
    I searched the world for pecan coffee cake like I had when a kid. And I found it!:D
    Cubs game got called. No replay broadcast or live play tonite 'cause the weather is a bitch for baseball.
    Even though Saturday's win against Atlanta can be attributed to the weather witch.;)

  16. Thirty-nine degrees, early this morning. Well, OK. If it’s gonna feel like February, then we’re gonna eat like it’s February. No fresh spring salad or lightly grilled mahi for us, tonight. We’ve got hot country ham and big limas on the stove.

    Looks great and like home, AF. Cornbread?

  19. Didn’t make cornbread this time. I usually do. And I usually make it in my great-grandmother’s skillet...with chopped jalapeño peppers stirred into the mix. But both Jackie and I have reduced our carb intake, so we passed on having both beans and cornbread.

    I'm from the Chicago south side and tasted cornbread for the first time inside a Ft Polk, Louisiana mess hall. Had to ask what it was, never heard of it.o_O
    Typical dumb ass Yankee trainee.:rolleyes:
    Cannot get enough cornbread now, like it best with log cabin syrup and hot coffee.
