Dinners of days past..

As we sit in Penn Station waiting for our final train home, I thought I'd share some pics of meals we've made in the past.

1) jerk chicken - made in the slow cooker.
2) farm fresh veggie pasta.
3) lamb sausage with grilled onions & fresh salad.
4 tilapia, herbed couscous & salad

Ok that's all for now, this is making me hungry, and as I said, we're in Penn Station & oddly enough there's nothing good enough to eat open...nite.

Maine turkeys!

We're heading home from our Thanksgiving in Maine. Dinner was great, of course we over ate. Family was crazy, but it wouldn't be as much fun if they weren't!
This years movie was the Muppets! There is currently a debate as to how bad it actually was...I think it was pretty bad, but my brother says I'm too judgemental & it wasn't that bad. I guess I excected a big muppet show, but it was this movie where they broke out into song about whatever was happening...
I digress...this year I decided to try a "Thanksgiving Benedict" for breakfast the morning after. It's a pancake of stuffing browned on both sides, topped w turkey & an egg everything smothered in gravy! It was awesome, if I do say so myself. I had to modify it slightly, I wasn't allowed to use turkey or the hommade gravy I made, since my grandmother thought my recipe sounded "disgusting" (see I told you, crazy! We weren't allowed to have turkey sandwichs in the middle of the night either. Cray-cray. We did it anyways) so u substituted turkey with bacon & got some store bought gravy...it was still good! I suggest you try it! I did end up sopping up the excess gravy & yoke w a dinner biscut from the night before.

Happy thanksgiving all, hope yours was great!
