I had a delicious onion soup, and crisply fried and lightly salted potatoes with sour cream.

Okay I had a big bag of chips and a tub of dip I made.

I had havarti on Triscuits, accompanied by steamed broccoli and cauliflower.

Dessert was a handful of kettle corn.

Okay, you crazies, I actually cooked yesterday! I made garlic shoots with chicken the way my aiyi taught me to make garlic shoots with pork (I didn't have any pork...freezer fail). It was delicious!

And then I stumbled across a box of girl scout cookies (samosas) that somehow got lost in my cupboard. So I ate 2/3 of the box for dessert.

We had grilled steak that was marinated in Italian herbs, rosemary mashed potatoes, fresh green beans from our garden, and rolls.

Tonight will be beef culotte that has been in a greek style marinade. It will be seared and thinly sliced, then served on warm pita bread with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, and Tzatziki sauce. I haven't thought of a side, yet. Maybe I'll try what you had for your entree last night, aesir.

I'm doing this "Coulotte Challenge" thing. See, Waywardson's company takes the coulotte to get a better price on another cut of beef, but they don't really use the coulotte. So, they have a ton of it and would like to find a way to use it and also said to "take it, please". I REALLY didn't like the flavor (too beefy) and texture of it, so my challenge is finding ways that *I* like it and, in the process, we may find something that the restaurant can do with it. I took four and used four different marinades. The Italian one was the first we pulled out, Greek is tonight, then we have one in a habanero peach marinade and another in an Asian marinade.

Pasta salad with almond slivers, tomatoes, cukes, cauliflower, green peppers and cheddar cheese cubes. No lettuce, I am sick to death of lettuce.

And FWIW, that was lunch in my world. Dinner, aka supper is still to come.

I can try to track down the recipe, but it's a vegetarian chili that a friend of mine makes. She brought it to one of our meal swaps a few months ago. (It's been languishing in my freezer since then.)

This one sounds good

Sweet-Potato and Barley Chili

Recipe By :Vegetarian Planet - Didi Emmons
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 cup dried pearled or hulled barley
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups chopped onions
5 garlic cloves -- minced
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seed
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 cups chopped husked tomatillos (about 12)
2 green bell pepper ring -- seeded and cut into 1/2-inch
squares
1 large boniato -- peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
or
2 small sweet potatoes (about 1 1/4 lbs) -- peeled and cut into
1/2-inch cubes
3 cups water or stock
1 teaspoon salt
1 to 2 dried chipotle peppers
or
1 to 2 chipotle chiles canned in adobo
freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 tablespoons sour cream (optional)

If you don't much like beans or lentils, this is the chili for you. Boniatos
are white-fleshed sweet potatoes; they are less sweet and somewhat drier than
orange sweet potatoes. Now grown in Florida as well as Central America,
boniatos are sold in Latin American markets and some supermarkets, as are
chipotle peppers. If you can't find boniatos, orange sweet potatoes will do
fine.

Bring the barley and 1 1/2 cups lightly salted water to a boil. Reduce the heat,
and simmer the barley, covered, for 1 hour. Drain the barley, if any water
remains.

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the onions,
stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until they brown at the edges. Add the
garlic, cumin, and chili powder. Cook for 3 minutes more, stirring frequently.

Add the tomatillos, bell peppers, boniato or sweet potatoes, water or stock, and
salt. Chop the chipotle pepper(s) if they are canned; keep them whole if they
are dried. Add them to the chili. Let the chili simmer 25 minutes, or until
the vegetables are tender.

Remove the chipotle(s) if they are dried. Seed them, chop them fine, and return
them to the chili (add the seeds iif you want more heat). Add the black pepper
and the barley. Stir well, taste, and adjust the seasonings. Serve the chili
in bowls, with dollops of sour cream on top, if you like.

The one I found in my freezer had sweet potatoes, orange bell pepper, tomatoes, barley, black beans, and something green that was totally broken down and mushy and indiscernible by the time it cooked. And chili spices.

The nice thing about chili is you can add the same spice to almost anything and it is still chili.

She must have added the barley since it's not in the recipe.

That sounds very peppery! Do they all mature at the same time? That's the trick to mixing I think.

Storebought just doesn't cut it after you've grown your own. Nice and crispy.

They all mature roughly around the same time. I order different mixes off the internet from a company in San Francisco. Their seeds are top of the line. You're right, store bought just doesn't cut it!

Baked potato with butter and parmesan sprinkled on top, just to be different. Small handful of chocolate chips for dessert (easy way to have a small amount of dark chocolate). Having a twisted tea now.

I don't know. Tonight is my university alumni association annual Affinity dinner, which means it's $150 for probably inferior food because it's a fundraiser, and while we're eating, someone from the university will hit us up for more $$.

If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say rubber chicken.

And I was pleasantly surprised. It was all grazing stations with Newfoundland-style foods: fried haddock sliders, venison tourtiere, potato slices with lobster salad, tiny crab cakes. Food was AMAZING! I ate too much.
