What are you having for dinner? AGAIN!

I am about to add carrots to the pot roast that is in the oven. Will also bake a potato. I think.

Cooking quantities of compliant meats. Choosing veggies at random from the freezer. Easy!

Turkey burger with Cole Slaw on the bun + pickles, tomato and making sweet potato fries....

Tonight I am having whatever the kids don't want from their Halloween bags. Oh, but before that, we're having homemade split pea soup with carrots and ham in it, a loaf of homemade bread, and some sliced tomatoes. The soup always makes the house smell funny, but it's tasty!
Earth Fare had Chilean seabass spring rolls on sale, 10 for $10. I bought two packages. I found some frozen shrimp cakes that have spinach and edamame in them at a local grocery store awhile back. They were on sale for $1.99 a box with 2 in each package (regularly $6.99 a box). I bought a couple to try and they were great, so I went back and bought a whole bunch of them for my garage freezer. So, tonight we are having Chilean Seabass rolls and shrimp cakes. I created a dipping sauce for the spring rolls using Tangerine juice, honey, rice wine vinegat, a dash of Sriracha paste, and soy sauce. I cooked it down until it was slightly thick, then added black sesame seeds. It's pretty darned good.
Your sauce sounds delish! I made big dinner sized salads with baby greens, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes. Then I sliced a baked chicken breast really thin and put on top of them. I finished mine with avocado and the other with croutons.

I enjoy awkward questions and uncomfortable silences. This gas station pavement is $%^@*#& hot.
We do those salads a couple times a month. Add some crumbled bacon and feta cheese, too. Hubby likes red wine vinegar and olive oil. I like ranch or creamy Italian.
Last night, I had crispy spicy tofu, spicy chicken cilantro, spicy beef chow mien. All yum!
Leftover pot roast and gravy, with carrots and mashed potatoes. Great comfort food for chilly days and frosty nights here.

Earth Fare (healthy foods store) had grass fed whole beef tenderloins on sale for $9.99 a pound, and I had a coupon for 25% off any one item. I had the butcher cut it into steaks and take the scrap and turn it into hamburger meat, though there was only about 1.5 pounds of hamburger, not much scrap at all and the steaks were nicely trimmed. Filet mignon for $7.50 a pound! We had filet mignon burgers with bacon, white cheddar and havarti cheese the other night and they were amazing. I made seasoned patties and froze them with wax paper in between. Last night we had filet mignon with arugla and spinach salad and the last of the tomatoes from my garden. We had our first freeze the other night and hubby picked all the green ones off the plant and they are ripening on my kitchen counter in a bowl.
Stopped in at Albertson's where I hardly ever shop and they had a sale freezer...picked up a frozen package of Pierogies (12) for 2.67 half off, haven't had them since I was a kid in San Francisco at a great Russian store, but were homemade. Having that and salad I got on a job yesterday, and bought a package of Nestle's chocolate ice creme sandwich's for a buck...gotta love a sale, so, no cooking as my crew was here, and house is so clean, want to keep it that way.

I love perogies! I had never even heard of them until I moved to Ohio about 20 years ago, can you imagine?

Funny, mine are potato and onion and you can mic them in water....so good and hard to find....do you put a sauce on yours?

No, I usually pan fry mine in a bit of olive oil and butter, and then I lightly salt them and put sour cream and chopped green onion on them. I like mine to be a little bit crisp and browned.

There is a lady here who makes them fresh and sells them at local markets. She has amazing varieties, sometimes mushroom and goat cheese, crabmeat and lobster, bacon and cheddar, just all different kinds.
I like the cheese, onion, cabbage. I put butter and water in the pan, fry until the water is gone and the butter starts lightly browning. I serve with sour cream, similar to JASFLALMT. They sell fresh ones at WholeFoods.
Soon, I will try cabbage steaks. The cook I observed prepared the recipe so lovingly... there can never be enough garlic; you can combine minced garlic with evoo and pout over top to coat instead of rubbing; you can add a good white wine for flavor; and you can have an easy process and quick cleanup!

Other cooks add cheeses, meats, and other ingredients in related recipes.

As long as I am on the rigid Whole30, I must stick to the basics and use fennel (anise?) for flavor.

Veal breast stuffed with spinach and onion; slow cooked with cheap wine and seasoning.
I have some leftover General Tso's chicken. Will add more steamed broccoli to that and some homemade yellow rice.

Oven broiled 1/2 pound lobster tails with lemon butter, pan-seared shrimp cakes (with edamame and spinach in them), and asparagus with a homemade tarragon cream sauce using fresh tarragon from my windowsill herb garden.
Chicken creole soup with crumbled sausage, the holy trio of onion, celery and carrots, plus tomatoes, green peppers and rice. The other holy trio of bay leaves, thyme and oregano. It is seriously delicious.
