What's for Dinner #319 -- Hot Town, Summer in the City Edition! [through August 18, 2014]

The pig apparently had it comin' again tonight. James bought a ham steak while my tummy was checked out so it needed to be used. I also had some bacon that never got used this weekend. I threw it into the oven and added it to green beans and some chicken stock from rotisserie chicken night and sautéed onions and made smothered green beans. Baked some taters since the oven was hot baking bacon and those got the butter, bacon bits, sour cream and cheddar cheese treatment. Porkapalooza here.

Time to breath and reboot. I had to wait for 16 months to get divorced(and if ya can't tell by my personality here, it wasn't because I was contesting). Congratulations and I hope you and Paps take just as good care now as you have been of each other.

Good luck at the contest. The burger looks delicious. Enjoy the mister and marsala single girl!

ETA that was misters not MR's.

It was very good and easy on the tummy. I use cream of mushroom soup in my green bean casserole but that is about it. It is a must about once a year.

Hook me up if the biscuits are good. I love biscuits.

Do you buy bakery rolls? We both have a love for Marty's, I was wondering if there is a brand you love? I can't find one. I am stuck on Pisano's bakery rolls.

Truth be told, I never make it the same. Today I had the rest of a rotisserie chicken from Sunday that needed to be used so I pulled the carcass of meat and simmered the bones with carrot, onion, celery, bay leaf, peppercorn, garlic cloves and some poultry seasoning. It smelled wonderful bloop blooping away this afternoon. I strained out the broth and added one fresh large celery stalk, one medium onion and about 10 baby carrots, coined. Brought it to the boil and added a slurry of a few tbs of cornstarch and heavy cream and added it until it was nice and thick. I made Bisquick biscuits(shoot me after you give me a good recipe, I suck at baking). James' salad was a fridge clean of carrot coins, grape tomatoes, celery, bell pepper, shredded cheddar, boiled eggs, carrots, ham and cukes from the garden. Oregano vinaigrette to top. When left to his own devices dressing is apple cider vinegar and canola oil.

Keeping it simple and tummy friendly. Creamed chicken with celery, onions and carrots on biscuits. James will get a salad of whatever veggies are in the fridge and some vinaigrette I will throw together.

What's for Dinner #318 -- There Ain't No Cure for the Summertime Blues Edition! [through August 13, 2014]

I am a bit heavy hearted posting this post. Whoopee me(sarcastic), I have had a rough couple of days with my GP, and suffer with it during the days often. To my good fortune it usually subsides by three o' clock and I can resume life and eat dinner. Nothingswrong has her own demons and I applaud her tenacity,moxy and strength.

Tonight I am having chicken noodle and Gatorade if my tummy calms down and James is having a big salad of some sort.

I know we are hogging the thread but I sincerely hope that you aren't at the point of palliative care. You have been an incredible fighter. Everyone here knows it. You are my one cyber friend that keeps me hoping for the ones that suffer like you that a med is just on the horizon. I am not going nag you or tell you what to do but I think the fight in you will win out.

All my love, support and big fat ass cheering section is behind you.

When I feel good I love the smells of the foods I can't eat but when I attack any smell gets to me. Hopefully for James' sake I can to a place where I participate in cooking WFD even if I am not partaking.

Glad you get to at least enjoy the cooking to get a foodie fix. We can't let GP rule. I have even gained some more weight since my attacks are usually like morning sickness now and usually subside by mid day and the vomiting has mostly stopped. I keep toying with the idea of forbidden food but then a day like yesterday comes along and a big buzzer goes off in my head and I am done with that thought.

Keep doing what you can to take care and take it easy. Sometimes you do too much. We at WFD worry about you.

I have mangled some fish up pretty bad in my cooking mishaps. It wouldn't be such a bitch if they weren't so pricey.

Ugghhh to the scratched cornea. They hurt every time you move or blink your eye. So painful. I have heard the eye is a fast healer so I hope you find solace in that.

RIP Robin Williams. Awakenings is one of my favorite movies.

Yum to the dover sole dinner. Either prep sounds good to me.

Sorry about the sad dream. I dream of my last kitty to this day but the sad dreams have been replaced by ones that she is lost and I find her and she is well again. I now wake from those dreams happy. It feels like she is saying she is okay.

Quinoa looks very delicious. I haven't even attempted it since I got sick. I just don't think it would digest.

It seems I am having sympathetic tummy. Yesterday was a bad day for me and I did nothing but lie in bed and moan. I have nothing but well wishes for you. It is the worst days when you are feeling sick, hungry and in pain all at once. Those are the worst ones to deal with.

I admire you for having the constitution to still get up and cook for your bf. I cannot even be near food. Lucky for me James ate cold chicken and I dined on a room temp Gatorade. Today I am attempting chicken noodle soup ala Campbell's.

Seems like chicken is getting alotta love this Sunday.

Rotisserie chicken in the Ronco, creamed spinach and rosemary and garlic roasted potatoes that I am throwing in the bottom of the rotisserie to let the chicken juices drip down on and baste.

I do get it. I would love to meet you and be able to eat and drink without consequence. Someday we will be better and be able to do just that. We will enjoy some forbidden foods and chase them with a glass of wine.

And James was in charge. I love weekends when papa does the cooking.

I would be devastated if I had to give up food. I love everything about eating and can't imagine how the doctors would act so nonchalant about giving up something so integral to a person's life. Food isn't just sustenance, it is emotional and visceral to some people.

I am sorry that your son is leaving soon. I, however will gladly volunteer to take his place at the dinner table. I do dishes.

Hamburgers with cheddar and bacon on Marty's buns with French fries are up tonight.

So sorry that your tummy is not cooperating again. That really sucks. I am just envious that you power through and still cook for your sweetie. You are a strong willed woman. I hope that you get back on track soon.
