We had breakfast for dinner - pancakes, cantaloupe, sausage, and bacon. The kiddo thought was world had gone topsy turvy. Making pancakes goes so much better when I'm awake.

I love breakfast for dinner. Maybe we'll have a breakfast dinner tomorrow and save the leftovers for during the week when I'm really too tired to cook. Thanks for the reminder, Aud!

Last night was coconut curry chicken soup, and thanks to Tzarina for answering my "how to cook chicken for shredding" question. That part came out fine. As for the rest, I'm not sure what went wrong. Maybe it overheated and most of the liquid boiled off, or maybe her provider and mine have very different ideas about what constitutes a "bundle" of vermicelli (the pictures on her website suggest that this is likely), but what I got was less 'soup' and more 'coconut curry chicken pasta with a lot of sauce.' That said, it was damn good all the same. I also substituted a couple carrots for the bell pepper, since I don't like bell pepper and these carrots need eatin', and it worked out even better than I was expecting it to.

German pancakes were to be had today:

1 cup of milk
1 cup of flour
3 eggs
salt

baked out in a pan on medium heat, can be served with cinnamon sugar or with jam and rolled up.

Faux shepherd's pie (mashed potatoes, ground turkey, broccoli, corn, & cheese, with paprika sprinkled over the top).

Devil's food cake made from the lovely and talented Alton Brown's recipe.

I believe tonight will be vegetarian chili with sweet potatoes and a mini loaf of cheddar jalapeno bread.

Last night was rabbit pie, which was some of the most labor-intensive cooking I have done in a long while (and involved so many questions that you guys were integral to answering!). First attempt at pie crust, first attempt at rabbit, and the first time I have ever actually eaten rabbit. Worth every bit of the effort.

Whole pork butt slow roasted for 15 hours (thanks, sparrowgrass!), cheesy potatoes, green beans with bacon, deviled eggs, jello salad, pumpkin mini muffins, and ciabatta rolls sliced in half with butter and parmesan under the broiler. Carrot cake (another first for me) for dessert. I confess the muffins were store-bought. It was a small retirement party for Marty's caregiver that's been with him for 14 years. We all ate ourselves into a stupor.

Homemade chicken potato soup. Mmmmm... I boiled and deboned the chicken last night so tonight it's mostly assembly.

Chicken pot pie. Maybe not the best thing in the world, health-wise, but incredible comfort food. After this week I think I earned a bit of comfort food!

Last night it was a boiled cheddar turkey sausage link with some butter and herb flavored Noodle Roni. Our grocery stores have been a bit picked over, between delayed deliveries and people replacing their perishables, plus I have to conserve gas for who knows how long, so I avoid shopping even though I'm eating some very strange meals.

I had a lot of fruit that was just in the edge of turning - a bit overripe but not off yet. So I made a boozy smoothie. One mango, six kiwi, one satsuma, two pears, a glug of pear flavoured vodka, and a splash of cherry brandy. It looks absolutely disgusting, but is delicious.

It was ok, but not great. I didn't have the recipe I wanted to use and could not find it at home. The icing was too sweet for me, but I have the recipe I wanted now and will try again. Everyone loved it though and took some home, leaving just two pieces for Marty and I. So, it went over well, but wasn't exactly what I wanted.

Tonight I did filet mignon in a cast iron skillet, searing it first, then finishing in the oven. It was excellent! I usually wrap bacon around the sides and do it on the grill. Nice to know there's a delicious alternative.

Deli-style chicken slices (but they're kind of shredded up because they won't separate well) with swiss cheese and mayo on Wonder Bread and potato chips, with a side of milk. Chocolate coconut Lindt bar squares for dessert.

One of the better post-apocalypse meals, but boy is it getting old. I mean, Wonder Bread!?
