Monday Matters – Oct. 4, 2021 Edition

Well today has been an eventful day for much of social media, from what I understand. With Facebook and it’s minions WhatsApp and Instagram losing their place in the roster quite a number of people have been nearly frantic. And more upset that their social sites were down than that billions of them had their …

It Isn’t The Taste I Hate…

…it’s the texture! I’ve never been a fan of legumes. With the exception of refried beans, which I love. But on the left side of the image? Those are beans. I decided it isn’t the taste…well, you know the rest. A few months ago I got a can of cannellini beans and mashed ’em up …

Tasty Supper Idea – Beef & Cabbage

I had some things that needed to be used up today, including several roast beef “patties”- they taste like roast beef anyway, and are the consistency of canned tuna, then frozen together in patties which fall apart easily when they thaw – and a good-sized hunk of cabbage. So in my small casserole dish they …

Tasty Supper Ideas: Zucchini, Potatoes

This is a photo of last night’s supper, which included roast beef patties (something I got from the Amish store), roasted potato halves, and roasted zucchini halves. I would usually do the potatoes and zucchini as medallions, which is what I call it when I cut them into elongated circles before seasoning and roasting. I …

Best Supper EVER???

If it isn’t, it is sure close! Pete made supper tonight. I tried, but couldn’t quite accomplish it (see my chat note from earlier today), so I talked him through, telling him how I would have done things. This was a supper made up of 4 out of my 10 favorite foods: pork, cabbage, squash, …

August 26, 2021 Supper

I started eating low carb/high fat in 2004; after losing 90# in the first 5 months and NOT liking the results, I walked a balance ever since so as to get the health benefits without the weight loss. And within the last year or so I started intermittent fasting (18-hour daily fast) and increasing my …

A Quick Nighttime Note…

…because it’s too long to paste into my chat! This is what I just posted on my favorite Mastodon instance and thought I’d share here too…it’s kind of a followup to what I’d written in my chat earlier: So Pete texted me earlier that he couldn’t find a room for less than $200/night . He …

Sometimes A Supper is JUST Right!

I’m not a food photographer, although you probably guessed that as soon as you saw this photo… What’s on my plate is roasted chicken thighs, cauliflower, and asparagus, plus air-fried sweet potato medallions. Details below! I’ve never used our air fryer for sweet potatoes before, so I was flying by the seat of my pants. …

DINNER!!

This is the first time I’ve made chicken in the Ninja Foodi Digital Air Fry Oven. I set it at 400F for 15 minutes but it needed just a little more time, so 5 minutes at 350 did the trick. And it is delicious! I never got hungry today but at about 7:00 decided I …

Tonight’s Delicious Supper!

I slivered about a quarter of an onion and put it in a hot pan with a little oil while I cubed some pork tenderloin. After adding the pork I stirred it around for a couple of minutes. When the onion was soft and the meat almost cooked through I added the leftover roasted cabbage …
