• Dishing about dinner since 2011.
    I use normal, easy ingredients.
    Sometimes I eat out. I'll share that too.

Over the weekend I made… Saturday lunch!

I got a new issue of the food magazine I love and came across this fantastic recipe for  sandwich. I got some hefty, rustic bread, chicken breasts, spinach, onions, mozzarella cheese and mayo. Sauteed onions until soft, then brown, cooked chicken in olive oil, toasted bread and created a delicious rustic sandwich. It was amazing! … Continue reading

My California adventure day 3…

Day 3 was our trip to San Francisco! We ate a lot of delicious food that day. I was stuffed! We saw all the usual sites: Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Ghirardelli chocolate factory, Lombard st. and the hippie section of town. Our first stop was a restaurant that has several locations in San Francisco:  Squat … Continue reading

My California adventure day 2…

The California adventure continues! Day two was lots of walking, seeing the town and again, more eating! Our first stop for lunch was Patxi’s Chicago Pizza. This was the best pizza I have ever had. I had never had Chicago deep dish pizza before and after eating their pizza I’d love to find a place … Continue reading

My California Adventure Day 1…

About two and a half weeks ago my fiancee and I took a trip to visit some friends in California. They live outside of San Francisco in a city in Silicon Valley. They love food just about as much as we do so, we knew that our visit would include lots of eating out and … Continue reading

Last night, for the last time in 40 days, I had…

HOSTESS DEVIL DOGS. I know this isn’t my traditional post about what I had for dinner but, I think this is compelling. I’m not super religious but, I like to recognize major religious holidays and with today being Ash Wednesday and the start of lent it’s time to give something up! I  like to give … Continue reading

Tonight I ate…

Spinach, ricotta and mozzarella stuffed chicken breasts in tomato sauce. This dinner I came up with in 5 minutes. I had bought some spinach but had some ricotta and tomato sauce leftover from last week. I HATE putting things to waste as you may or may not know and I desperately needed to find a … Continue reading

Tonight I ate…

Panko crusted Cod with homemade potato “slop” and peas. What is potato “slop” you might ask? Technically it’s homemade home fries. Yes, I know it’s a breakfast food BUT, I am in LOVE with this recipe, I had some peppers and potatoes lying around and needed a starch to go with the fish. The home … Continue reading

Tonight I ate…

Linguine with ricotta tomato sauce. I had an exercise class a little bit later tonight so I needed something quick to make and to eat right when I got home so it had time to digest before my class. I settled on some pasta that I had in the cabinet. I had some leftover ricotta … Continue reading

Tonight I ate…

Balsamic glazed pork chops with asparagus and sweet potatoes. I am having extremely aggravating technical difficulties with my phone – I take photos of my meals and then they don’t save! It’s not like I can take another picture because the food is eaten. Anyway… the pork chops etc. were delicious! The glaze had some … Continue reading

Today for lunch…

I ate a deconstructed taco salad. What is that you might ask? Well I am not a person who can let leftovers go to waste. If we have something for dinner and there are leftovers, that is usually my lunch the next day. I try to modify the food so that it is a little … Continue reading
