For lunch we went to the California Pizza Kitchen (you know those yummy barbecue chicken pizzas in the yellow box) and got the barbecue chicken pizza (his favorite) and avocado chicken spring rolls.

For supper I was going to make spaghetti carbonara with kale, but by the time we got home I was too tired...so I tossed some pizza rolls in the oven for my son.

I did manage to cook dessert - I made a berry crumble. I used fresh raspberries, blueberries, and black berries in it. Fucking yum! Next time I'm gonna use a recipe that has oats in the crumble - I think it would have had a better texture and added more depth to the flavor.

If I'm not too tired when I wake up I'm going to make morning monte cristos for breakfast. I'm using Granny Smith apples, apricot preserves, ham, and smoked Gruyere (couldn't find smoked cheddar) between two pieces of bread dipped in a French toast batter. I'll fry it in the skillet with butter and then sprinkle powdered sugar on top.

For lunch I'm going to roast a pork shoulder (on top of carrots, potatoes, onions, and celery with rosemary and garlic) that I can later turn into a ragu. I'll cook some green beans, mashed potatoes and toss a side salad together.


I also have ingredients to make boiled cabbage with kielbasa later this week.

Sounds wonderful!

I would offer, on your oats for the crumble, toast them in the oven for a bit first, let them cool then add them. It will enhance their flavor. They take longer to toast in the crumble than the flour does, so the flour would burn before the oats really get toasted when they are combined. Just a tip. Smile

I've been taking cooking classes because my cooking is well not the best Tongue I wish you lived closer so you could teach me instead! I'm vegan but I do cook for meateaters and would love them to actually want to eat something I make. Big Grin

The berry crumble looks ah-mazing!

Today I baked condensed milk based chocolate cookies. More like a cross between fudge and a cookie really. Now the challenging part. Eat them sparingly without breaking my dietary rules.

I load mine up with pineapple too and lots of black olive and then crushed red pepper for some kick. I also like artichokes, black olives, zucchini, mushrooms on mine. And of course, crushed red pepper on all of it Thumbsup

Good luck not eating all of your cookies. I would have eaten them all already Wink

Baked potatoes with chicken wings plus salad made from Chinese cabbage, cucumber and pepperoni with Greek sauce.

Coffee and doughnuts.

It's warm enough that I will grill a rib steak out on the barby tonight.

I'll make some black beans and rice to accompany it. Drooling

RE: What did you eat today?
Greek yogurt/Nature Valley for breakfast, leftover stir fry for lunch, some sunflower seeds. I think I'm doing better with eating more regularly/consistently. Also, started drinking green tea.
