I spent 4 hours (!!!) making Osso Buco with barley Milanese risotto and gremolata for dinner. My house smells like it. My hair smells like it. My S/O thinks this is great. He wants to have a dish detergent that smells like osso buco because it would make washing up "delicious".

Yum!!

I had a caramel apple from the farmers market.

FWSO had a pastrami sandwich from a local eatery.

DS had left-over steak and then his caramel apple.

I haven't had anything. Ever since I started working again (which has only been a week and two days), I haven't really been in the kitchen, at all.

I just finished all the cleaning up from our belated Christmas celebration with our adult kids and their fiancée/girlfriend, and our BF, his daughter and her bf.
We had.....
prime rib
garlic mashed potatoes
broccoli with cheese sauce
garlic buttered green beans
Yorkshire pudding

...dessert:
apple-cranberry crisp
carrot cake

...and tomorrow night H and I will enjoy the leftovers...

Your Osso Buco looks amazing, lynnm!
We went over to the St Pete Saturday market this morning and brought home lots of great vegetables, then stopped at a fish market and bought imperial red shrimp (it's only available sometimes)and ahi tuna. WH seared the tuna, I cooked the vegetables and shrimp- chocolate pie for dessert. Easy. But a caramel apple would have been nice.

Shrimp and tuna? Heaven! Now I want fresh tuna salade nicoise.

The photo I posted was my S/O's plate. He was starving. He ate all that and had seconds! Every time I cook this meal, I swear I'll never do it again. Four freaking hours start to finish. Even the gremolata on top involves chopping parsley really small, crushing and chopping a clove of garlic likewise, and taking a microplane to a lemon. S/O says it was originally designed to be full employment for Italian wives. But it tastes SO good, after about six months I forget!

I'd love to have a caramel apple for dinner. Add a little plate of cheese and I'm set. However, we actually had sandwiches from the deli when we got home from grocery shopping from the week. Mine had honey maple ham with Swiss cheese. Yummy!

Tonight, we get to enjoy chicken Paprikash & noodles with low cal chocolate yogurt/oat muffins for desert.

The other day, Montreal spice crusted roast loin of pork with oven roasted potato wedges.

Being unemployed does let me have the time to indulge in new recipe tryouts!

I made a big ole' stout meatloaf, but I used half italian ground pork n half ground beef, added some mozzarella into the mix, some fresh parsley and oregano, pizza sauce on top and it was moist, awesome and filling. Yay cold weather! In the spirit of full disclosure, however, dinner last night was homemade chex mix. I love being single...

I made a chuck roast... Used can of mushroom soup, red wine and beef broth with a little Worcestershire. Browned the roast... cooked up the onions and garlic in the meat drippings... Then poured the mushroom soup mixture over it all and put it in the oven on 350° for 3.5 hours.... So yummy

Served over egg noodles
w/ broccoli and rolls.

It was very much delicious.

I think tonight's dinner will be individual meatloaf (use my muffin pan to make meat muffins) with my secret sauce on top. Using the pan helps them cook a little faster and there's nothing to slice.

Not sure on sides...it depends on what sounds good when I open the pantry door.

ETA: It was awesome! A great alternative to pasta. H & I both liked it. DD22 said the texture was *off* for her.

Definitely will do this again - can't believe I am 52yo and just had spaghetti squash for the first time.

DD turned me on to spaghetti squash. Not sure what she does to it, but it's always delicious.

Tonight I had a veggie burger with sauteed onions, zucchini and mushrooms on top and as a side.

I love veggie burgers.

Do you make your own veggie burgers or buy them premade?
I've only ever tried the Garden Burgers back in the mid-90s and I wasn't enthralled....
I'm curious if they're any better than they used to be.

I'm not either, but I actually prefer meatless meals. I feel so much less bloated afterwards and just feel better overall eating less meat.

Trying to cut down on the carbs, too. Love my carbs!

I'm a low carber already, so I feel much less bloat from skipping rice, potatoes, and bread.
I love spicy food so the spicy black bean burger is tempting me.

I'm trying to do less carbs, too. I'm a carb fiend.

Don't be disappointed if the spicy bean burger is less spicy than you expected. It's not that spicy, which worked for me because I'm not a huge spicy-food fan.

But I'm curious to know what you think about them .

spicy black bean

I love Morningstar spicy black bean burgers!! I'm a low-carber and my son's a vegetarian, so I have a lot of these in my freezer for when he visits

I also am not a huge fan of super-spicy, so these burgers are great.

For the low-carbers who might miss potatoes, if you peel and dice a celeriac, boil till tender then pan fry, it's just like hash browns. Mmmmmmm!

Does anyone make a cold pasta salad using anything other than Italian dressing as the oil/seasoning? That's how I am used to making it, and right now I am in a place with no access to a store, so what shall I use instead?

Authenticnow,
I didn't see the Morningstar Farms burgers when I went yesterday, but I was in the mood to try the black bean burgers.

I found a recipe to make some and OMG, they're soooo good!

Here's the recipe (use less spice if you're not a hot mama like me, lol):

Ingredients:
•1 Tbsp olive oil
•1/2 onion, diced
•2 garlic cloves, minced
•2 (14oz) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
•1/2 cup corn (optional)
•1/3 cup almond flour
•2 teaspoons dried cumin
•1 teaspoon black pepper
•3 Tbsp ketchup
•1 Tbsp soy sauce
•1 teaspoon salt
•1 teaspoon oregano
•1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
•1 teaspoon Sriracha
•1/2 teaspoon chili powder
•2 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro, fresh
•3 Tbsp olive oil (for frying)


Directions:
1. Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft and fragrant and they begin to carmelize. Remove from heat.
2. In a large bowl, mash the beans to desired consistency with two forks or a pastry cutter.
3. Add onion mix and remaining ingredients, folding in the almond flour until the mixture holds together but is still moist.
4. Form mixture into 4 patties.
5. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers.
6. Cook burgers until outsides are crisp and lightly browned, turning once (about 5 minutes per side). Alternatively, you could bake the burgers at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until heated through.

NOTE: I used black soy beans (lower carb option).

We're having Indian Butter Chicken, over rice. I think I will use some of the chicken to make ds chicken strips because he won't eat the butter chicken.

GabyBaby - but I was in the mood to try the black bean burgers.

In my world, that's simply wrong!

JRC, regular black beans are higher in carbs (approx. 22g per serving).
I used organic black SOY beans instead with have about 8g carbs and 7g fiber with net to 1g of carbs per serving.

LOL Hufi Pufi!!
I love a good beef burger too, but sometimes I want something lighter and non-meat. I was curious about Authenicnow's veggie burgers and gave it a try. They're really really good!
(Though I think I'm going to double the hot stuff next time around).

Painpaingoaway.
I make it with a raspberry vinaigrette. And throw in some fresh berries when I can otherwise frozen will work..
Missed the no access to a store part. But one of the places I used to work we also made it with creamy itailan, but I think ranch would work, or just EVOO and some lemon juice.
