Can't beat the edible; incredible, egg! I always say!...or is it ? incredible; edible egg?....sunny

I could go for a nice three egg omelet for breakfast tomorrow.
I may even save time by dicing mushrooms and onions, and bacon, and cheese bits; so It will make it quicker to make them. Some diced tomatoes would be nice, but I would have to used canned, diced tomatoes; drained of liquid, and toweled dry.

Ummmm. I could smell the toast and the coffee, and the hot pepper sauce for me at least...

Sorry.... I should have gone to the breakfast thread.

I want crab cakes....darn, Barb.

You always make me want things I don't have. Only crab I can find is the pasturized and last time I got that it tasted fishy. I ended up tossing the whole thing.

I should look for some crab legs ! That would satisfy my craving. Yeah, maybe I'll see if there are some on sale. or maybe not.

The king crab is $15. The snow crab is about half the price. I have never tasted it. Does it taste similar to king?

I took a pic of supper with my cell phone but didn't check to be sure it was in photobucket before we ate....and, wouldn't you know it, POOF! it's not there.....

So, picture this in your head:

Two grilled naked burgers with two fat slices of onion, also grilled. Then a pile of fresh steamed green beans and a mound of sautéed zucchini, yellow squash & onions.

It was surprisingly satisfying without a lot of carbs....go figure.

((but, boy am I ever craving something sweet or savory......like a loaf of French bread slathered in butter))

Gee, Barb, we had VERY similar meals yet again.....

Instead of the mushroom gravy, I had grilled onion on my burger and the green beans....yes, very close indeed!

And I had leftover rice that I could have had.....but refrained from because I was trying really hard to keep my calorie count down so I wouldn't exceed my 1,200 allowable "myfitnesspal.com" daily calorie allowance. It's a new eating game suggested by DD#1. I don't think I'll play the game long but I should give it a chance for a while.

Everyones meals look great.
I had mahi mahi fish...( too dry ) and pork fried rice leftover from the Chinese take out the other night.

Tina had pasta with a meatball, and but hardly ate. She's having potato chips with sour cream now. She is at least moving a little, and took a nice soaking bath in lavender oils.
Very relaxing she says!

Tina wants a meatloaf for tomorrow, but she will have to make it if she feels up to it! If I make it, it will be good, but she will fing something wrong; like too hard, and or too much seasoning etc.
We shall see.

I had my mouth all set for some stuffed pasta. Was sure I had a casserole in the freezer. Looked and looked and ended up pulling out a 'MYSTERY' casserole. Somehow, the label disappeared and I didn't know what it was until it was thawed.....SURPRISE !! Chicken, Vegetable & Noodle Casserole.

So, I added some stale Goldfish cracker crumbs I smashed up and said, "Supper's ON!"



Actually, it was pretty good. Especially since I didn't have a clue what it was when I took it out of the freezer. LOL



Oh, and to 'bulk it up with vegetables' I added about 2 cups of leftover beans and zucchini from last night. Two birds with one stone, so to speak. Now I don't have leftover veg in the refrigerator that I have to figure out what to do with.....

It was really good. I have not done sweet/spicy salsas before, but will again. This was Kiwi fruit, peach, pineapple, jalapenio, cilantro (I don't like cilantro so used curly parsley) Lime zest and juice. I think next time I will add some sweet onion.

Cornish hen was good, I butterflied it and ate only half. More for tomorrow!

Really looks so warming and succulent Barb. Those onions, right? I think they are pearl onions? .... I love onions ...red ....yellow...Spanish...scallions....basically all kinds! ....But do you know, I cannot eat them pearl onions. I don't know what it is, but no matter how they are cooked, I get very sick after eating them.

I've tried them several times, but whatever they are, I cannot eat them. No
