You'll need those 'snacks' to keep up your strength in all that snow, Jimmy. Just be careful and don't over do the physical work. Pace yourself and take lots of breaks ~ please!

We had the leftover ribs and the (ever popular) vegetable 'spaghetti'...

I just finished eating my "invention". In my definitely not so humble opinion, I hit a home run!

I had a package of frozen seafood, squid, mussels, octopus, shrimp, all little itty bitty creatures.
I sauteed an onion, some garlic, added about a half red and half a yellow pepper. I had no crushed tomatoes, but two medium sized fresh ones, chopped them up, then found a can of tomato soup. Added the tomato soup, then the bag of seafood, added a bunch of parsley, some cayenne, some cumin, salt and pepper, stuck it in the oven for about an hour.

Peppers were still a little crispy, flavour was amazing. I served it over some tagliatelli, definitely a keeper recipe!

Good for you Lore!.... sounds delicious.
Actually unless the kids are going to eat here, I don't bother making seafood. Tina doesn't really jump for joy eating it. She will maybe eat 1 - 1/2 shrimp and that's about it.LOL

Looks good ( again ). I'll bet that veggie spaghetti, would be great mixed with some real spaghetti?? ... Hmmmm???

Hubby loved seafood, but would not have liked this. He wanted to see each thing separately not mixed up with other things.

Strange weather here today. It is in the 70's, semi-overcast and we are supposed to get rain. I am going to try a new recipe for tonight: Coconut Chicken Salad with Warm Honey Mustard Vinaigrette.

Bugs - do you use sweetened or un-sweetened coconut for your coating?

I did a chicken parmesan on linguini with a tossed salad for our supper. Didn't know what else to make and that was the first thing that jumped out at me.

Sis and I went out for a late lunch, I had chili. I love beans in all kinds of things. It's cold, blustery snowing, so chili was really called for!

The recipe uses sweetened coconut. We tried it but I didn't much care for it.

The looks of it seems like it's delicious, but I guess the coconut would turn me off too.

The same thing happened to my friend. She ate an entire box of sugar free jelly beans. She sat on the throne for 2 days. Then she looks at the box and sees, in small print, not to eat more than 5 at a time. They should put it in big red letters across the front of the box. Another insidious food is dried fruit. It will do the same thing if you eat too much. My parents got one of those huge dried fruit trays for Christmas one year. I warned them but apparently they didn't listen. Talk about a royal flush.LOL!!!

My gut is bothering me too today but not from something sugar free. I wonder if it was the fried egg this morning?

I had wanted to bake off a butternut squash for supper, but when I cut into it the flesh was dried out and it smelled more like a pumpkin. I tossed it.

So, Plan B:

Ham/Potato/Green Bean Pot Supper

Thank you Beth and Barb.

Tonight, it was steak-um minute steaks peppers and cheese hoagies.

Not over stuffed, and no dessert for Tina and me yet. Gabe had his two scoops of chocolate ice cream.

No dinner for me tonight. DH and roomie had firecracker shrimp, ahi poke, salmon poke, candied salmon, Chinese coleslaw and a green salad.

Beth , the ham boil looks delicious.

Tina had to take Splenda off of Gabes diet. He was always running to the throne, and we changed to sweet and low. No problems ever since the change.

Feel better bugs....

Happened to me yesterday. I had a fried egg and cheese on a English muffin toasted, and layered these little beef breakfast sausages on the egg.
It was so delicious, but later on, It started huge bouts of sour stomach that I could taste burning my throat.
I was so much in heavy sour stomach pain, all followed by many bathroom visits.
I felt like I was poisoned somehow. No

Today was ok. Made a egg omelet cheese and tomato for lunch.
The steak-um is holding ok so far; but I took enzyme tabs to help digest the thing.

Jimmy, you ought to try Pepcid Complete. They are chewable tabs and do a good job on the stomach. I must have either picked up some bug somewhere or ate something that wasn't quite right. All I can think of is the egg I had this morning. My lower gut hurts but no trots just pain.
