I like those little corn dishes. May need to pick up a few. Where did you get them?

We had homemade boudin noir at a restaurant in Pittsburgh this weekend. I surprised myself and really enjoyed it -- it has a bit of a porridgey texture And mild flavor.

But after this week, Houston residents might agree with Joe.

At least we all can agree on lobstah! ;)

Back from a long weekend in Pittsburgh. Some very good eats, indeed, but no homecooking unless you count microwaving bacon and opening yogurt containers.

We made taco salads for a quick meal back home.

We are dieting for the next couple weeks so my posts here will be few and far between. We do have one dinner party planned for Friday and a cabin weekend away with friends the following, so there will be a *little* respite from the blahness.

Now that is dedication! I am sure they enjoy your company - speedy recovery! When my DH broke his ankle in Berlin, I kept the flow of Thai takeout steady, and he really appreciated the food, along with the distraction. He said it was a boring hell of nature shows and bland deli meats and rolls otherwise.

Hmm...well...fodder for another thread, perhaps, but I think I also read oh CH that the bacteria can form harmful compounds that don't cook away.

Rotten Wurst is the worst.

And because I'm a pushover, and DH suddenly announced a craving: baby key lime pies with a ginger-pecan crumb crust. I had just enough leftover condensed milk from making ice cream, Anna's ginger thins from a few dinner parties ago, two eggs, and a couple limes. Sugar craving is the mother of invention. :)

We made minced pork with Thai basil, along these lines:http://www.food.com/recipe/minced-por...

Snow peas with sesame butter and cauli rice alongside. I had mine with tons of hot sauce.

Yup, this is my reason - try to avoid added sugar. Mango is sweet enough!

Tonight DH made an awesome curried chicken salad salad. It was a bit of a fridge dump with jicama, green bell pepper, dried plums, cashews, jalape├▒o, etc. Super good. It was so nice to come home to dinner done!

I made a casserole with sort of Greek/Med. Flavors. Simmered a simple marinara sauce with a cinnamon stick, nutmeg, clove, bay leaves, dried oregano, red wine, sliced kalamatas, sugar, and tomato and anchovy pastes. Layered that with browned eggplant, zucchini, slices of chicken-fontina-spinach sausage, feta crumbles, mozz and parm. Baked til brown 'n bubbly.

The first slice is always sloppy on the plate, but DH liked it. A good variation on a weeknight standard.

I want that so badly.
