What's for dinner?

Italian style breaded (and baked) pork chops

"Tortilla- esque " soup: Bottled salsa, chicken stock, diced chicken breast. I thickened it with about a tsp of masarepa flour which I though gave a nice falvor and the kids didn't complain about.
The kids had theirs with cheese and tortilla chips.
Curlysue, you'd need about 1/2 tbsp salt for that much rice and orzo, unless you had salty broth. Then maybe 1/2 tsp. Not adding it would leave it bland. The rice should also be toasted in the butter, not just the orzo. I'd probably do 4 tbsp butter too for that quantity. Finish with lots of chopped parsley.

The smell of the orzo and pine nuts was so wonderful though. The kids said it smelled like cookies!

Spring those cinnamon pancakes look bangin'! I love anything with cinnamon.

Yeah, with salt you kind of need to taste and trust your tastebuds. Suzanne Goin decided to put exact salt amounts in her book because she feared that if she simply put salt to taste people wouldn't put enough and it really is the difference maker between so-so and great.

I'm doing shrimp burritos tonight: shrimp with taco seasoning and black beans and then cilantro, tomatoes, sour cream, homemade guacamole and salsa for toppings. One of the easiest meals possible, and yet so delicious!

Jaynee, I'm definitely stealing that idea. Would be perfect to make a one serving meal!

Tonight is shrimp and asparagus orzo and I'm also throwing in some mushrooms. This is such a quick and easy meal! Some good ole crusty french bread because I just can't get enough carbs.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

I'm on my own for the next three nights and I have no motivation to cook when it's just me. I may splurge on sushi tonight...it's 80 degrees here today and that sounds much better than a hot kitchen!

I can resist pizza that is greasy or has too much gooey cheese on it. But any other? No way!

I was going to have cabbage rolls tonite but I think I will have a box of Pop Tarts instead. Shhh. Don't tell.
