Uh-oh.... potato soup idea has been derailed by the mention of Sonic. How can I resist onion rings?

My resolve: being challenged.

No idea for tonight, but the other night we had homemade noodles (paper thin and so delicate, the texture was a-maz-ing) with homemade pesto (fresh basil, olive oil, pinenuts, and galic). It was divine.

Baked chicken and steamed carrots and broccoli...nothing special, but still good.

Did you like them?? Did you brush with melted butter (that is assumed in my family, which is why we're WW's dream)?

i wanted to share with y'all my favourite comfort food - it's a Hungarian stew that my grandparents used to make. along with navy bean soup, it provides me with great memories of my childhood.

Lesco

olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper and 1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 pound smoked Debreceni sausage, sliced (any mild spiced sausage will do, but this is traditional)
1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes (i use the ones with herbs)
1 tablespoon of Hungarian paprika

in a large pot over medium heat cook garlic and onion, stirring frequently, not allowing it to burn. stir in peppers, sausage, tomatoes, and paprika. cover, reduce heat and simmer 20 to 30 minutes.

about 10 minutes before serving, i add a teaspoon of smoked paprika for extra flavour.

when i serve this - piping hot - i put a LARGE dollop of sour cream in the middle.

DO NOT use reduced fat or low fat sour cream - regular, full-fat sour cream is best with this.

if you have ANY Eastern European blood in you, you might consider this to be "soul food"!

I need to stop checking this thread. It makes me so hungry!!

I made a huge pot of chili today. I had a bunch of lean beef and veal in the freezer so used that instead of my usual ground beef. Mmmmmm. Spicy and hot and yum.

Chicken Chow Mein.

I've had this for the last 3 nights because I used Sharwoods Chow Mein sauce and a little bottle has made 3 dinners. For a pre-made sauce it's pretty good.

I am SO going to try this. I am in love with kale and throw in potatoes and onions and I will inhale that stuff.
