Last night I made salmon, rice, and broccoli with cheese sauce. There was minimal whining and only rice for leftovers. I might long for something a little more flavorful but I'll make do with minimal whining.

Chicken burgers with parsley, thyme and basil and a knob of basil butter inserted in the middle. With bacon and a hash brown. The knob of basil butter was an experiment cause I need to use it (the basil butter). It was an sucess.

I have had a lot of basil in my herb garden this year, and it has been self sowing.

We're having our first beef stew of winter. Well it's not really winter yet but it's so cold today it may as well be! This is my mother's recipe, although I swear she left out an ingredient as I can never get it to taste as good as hers. but it's still pretty good - it's a lot of work to put it together but then it sits simmering on the back of the stove all day and it's just so warming and yummy .

Vegan jackfruit tacos, a type of fruit that isn't sweet and takes on a firm meaty texture when cooked.
Gluten-free, vegan Oreo-style whoopie pie.

I have aubergines that need using before they go off so I think I will make griddled aubergine skewers with a satay sauce and some vegetable fried rice.

Leftover carrot-ginger soup with some spinach boiled in, a slice of cheese toast, and orange spice tea with cranberry-pistachio biscotti for dessert.

Minute Rice multi-grain instant rice with wild and red rice and quinoa, 4 2-serving packs in a box for $3. Yes, I CAN make an awesome rice dish from sctratch with all that, but for on the fly, this is good stuff.

I have just finished browning the meat, now it's in the huge kettle to be brought to rolling boil. I am starting my annual, world famous, Chinese recipe-based ox tail soup.

By supper Thursday evening, it should be almost perfect. Perfection will be achieved after the soup is refrigerated Thursday night, then reheated for supper Friday evening. I serve it with a dipping sauce of grated ginger and soy sauce.

We had our traditional February 2nd sausage patty dinner, with parsley potatoes and carrots. Why traditional? In America it was Groundhog Day so we had ground hog.

Is there another thread with this title? I am sure I posted hear more recently then December. And read one more recently then February.

Anyway I had pork and pickled garlic green curry. Except I didn't have pickled garlic so I use ordnary. Also I tried to make one pork fillet last for three meals, so I don't feel like I had quiet enough. Oh well it was delicous.

The other meals were two lots of pulled pork burrito. I can bulk the burrito out with extra beans so it works better with only a third of a pork fillet.

Last night's dinner was nothing special -- a green salad with dried cranberries and turkey Italian sausage with sauteed mushrooms and onions.
But dessert was out of this world.
My son brought me a piece of the cheesecake he'd made for the brewpub where he works. White chocolate cheesecake with chocbrock sauce and carmelized bacon.
Chocolate, beer and bacon. Need i say more?

I'm debating having either frozen pizza or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich tonight. Just too much going on to cook for real. What's on your menu tonight?
