Mussels!!

BTW, I went out for mussels on Tuesday and plan to use a giftcard I have for this weekend and try a local seafood market/restaurant's version.
I'm attempting them soon...I promise.

Ohhhh, that sounds so delicous, my mouth is watering! Tonight's dinner is rotisserie chicken, spinach salad with red onion and cherry tomatoes, and garlic bread.

I wish I grilled today but my hubby has been begging me to make this recipe I found for braised short ribs over pasta.

Bologna/swiss cheese sandwich. On white bread. Saria probably just fainted.

I like bologna! I like mortadella more, but still, I like bologna. And white bread (not mushy Wonderbread white though). Not crazy about Swiss unless it's melted. But I do love a good sandwich. You know what's good? Ham on buttered crusty rolls. Man, I can pack those away like nobody's business! I feel very French when I eat them, too.

Saria's rice made me drool. Mmm mmm mmm.

I made hamburger salad tonite (ground black angus, romaine, onion, tomato, and a bit of ketchup). It hit the spot.

I also made 2 kinds of chicken sausage tonite - sage ginger and hot Italian - and will let them age in the fridge and have them for supper tomorrow or Saturday.

Tonight we are part of a group hosting a fish fry, so there will be pan-fried panko fish, baby potatoes, veggie salad and crusty rolls. I am in charge of desserts: angel food cake, MnM cookies, ginger creams and oatmeal cupcakes with coconut frosting. Since it's going to snow tonight (grr), I decided to skip the typical springtime fare of lemon bars and brownies.

My daughter and I were out from 8am to 8pm yesterday. I had a McD Southwest salad with no chicken. It was pretty decent (for an emergency) with the corn, black beans, and lime.

It was not Wonderbread-promise A couple of months ago I had some great rolls and I had some leftover baked ham-I had little ham sandwiches with spicy mustard for breakfast that week! YUM.

Saria those mussels look divine!! There is a restaurant on the seacoast in NH that has the BEST mussels and I always have to get them when we go there. I eat them all by myself (SO does not like them so it works out perfectly )

And that rice-get out!! Looks so good.

Tonight was ginger lime shrimp and noodles and a french roll.

The freezer contents are dwindling, but the pantry items still seem to be in abundance. I hope I can use it all up before we move!

Thanks, xcptnl! You've got a good arrangement going there with your SO.
I swear the best part of having ham is leftovers for ham sandwiches. Those rolls sound great.

Spring, I only have spelt flour left to use up in terms of my wholegrain flours, so I've gotten somewhere in my quest to use what I have on hand. I am kinda sad that I finished the rye today, though. I could go for another loaf of black pepper rye.

I still can't figure out why I bought 5lbs of flour and sugar at the grocery store earlier this week. Seriously? Habits are hard to break and lawcy mercy I can't run out of flour and sugar!

I really need to make a list of what I've got left and plan some meals, I've just never been good at making stuff up.
