It’s been awhile since we had one (I keep getting Kinja’d), so c’mon in and let’s talk about food!
My kids asked what was for dinner and I replied, “Slop in a bowl”, because I really had no idea what to make! It had to be something involving the pound of ground pork that was thawed out, but I had little inspiration.
I loved Edie’s food porn thread earlier, and I was inspired to make delicious (though not very pretty) food for dinner. Thought I’d come see what everyone else ate tonight!
I’m sick and pitiful today. Dragged myself out for a school meeting this morning and spent most of the rest of the day lying in bed, coughing endlessly and blowing my nose every 2.5 seconds.
Hey, all, how’s it going? It’s been a bit since we had a dinner thread, so I thought... why not? Come in, set a spell, and let’s talk food!
My new place is still total chaos. I keep going to do things and realizing I don’t have stuff I need. Last night, I found enough kitchen to cook dinner... but had to cut up the onion for the pasta with kitchen shears because I have no sharp knives. I found a corkscrew, but no knives! We have our toothbrushes, but …
Yes, everyone is ok. No, the kids weren’t with us.
Housemate and Other-Husband got it into their heads to build a fire in the fire pit and cook baked potatoes in the ashes and hot dogs on a grill over the flames. (I am staying safely -and wisely- out of the way in the house.) This project started about 2 hours ago, and I’m. So. Hungry. I think the potatoes only went…
Oh. My. God. I found out what the gross smell in my car was. Brace yourselves.
Rented that house, I mean!
We’re not doing anything exciting for dinner here tonight, just leftovers from the last few days. How about you?
I had pretty much resigned myself to not moving this year because we just absolutely couldn’t find a place that was big enough for everyone AND affordable. This house basically fell into our laps after Husband heard about it from a friend of a friend. And, you guys, I just don’t know how I feel about it!
Have a cute kitty spacer:
This is a dinner thread and general post about delicious noms. Feel free to post any food related stuff... questions, recipes, what you’re making and/or eating tonight, etc.
It’s hot. It’s like, 87F. Gross. But I promised the kids a specific dinner tonight, so I’m cooking. The sacrifices I make for you kids! *shakes fist at the sky* :-P
Much of my cooking lately has been of the “just heat this up” variety. Tonight, though, I made a sheet pan dinner- roasted chicken thighs with fingerling potatoes and garlic cloves, and a separate tray of roasted veggies (bell peppers, onion, potatoes, and carrots). It was delicious :) I wish I’d grabbed a pic, but…
I am apparently having trouble responding to individual replies, so this is a general thank you to all who left a reply on my post last night. You are all so kind and have many helpful suggestions :) Thank you, GT.
Some of you may remember when I posted, a little over a year ago, that my husband had been diagnosed with testicular cancer. He had surgery, it went well, he was all clear.
Got a question for you! This may sound strange, but... did anyone notice their pets being weird around 3-4am? Housemate’s dog was pacing and whining and wanted to go out every 5 minutes (not like we were trying to sleep or anything *sigh*), and the cats were also acting weird, meowing and jumping on and off the bed…
