Tonight was board game night, so I had some leftover BBQ pulled chicken with garden green beans and sugar snap peas and some leftover apple cinnamon bread for dessert. Next week at game night, we're going to have a potluck dinner altogether, so I think my ways are rubbing off on my friends a little more lately.

Yesterday I made reindeer meat with mashed potatoes and broccoli. DH made a quick sauce for the meat.

Tonight I might make that Thai soup. The shop didn't have fresh coriander, but DH reminded me of the fact the we have a bag of frozen coriander in the freezer. I will use that.

I have also bought ingredients for a veggie lasagna with spinach and herbal white cheese. And DH bought some veggie burgers as well, as I had complained that we had been eating a lot of meat/fish lately.

I'm going to swing by the farmer's market this afternoon and get a bunch of perfect, local tomatoes and some corn.

They'll go into panzanella -- I'll cube good bread, toss it with olive oil,and toast it in the oven so the edges are crispy. Then it'll get mixed with all kinds of tasty vegetables (tomatoes, a little celery, some cooked asparagus from yesterday, maybe cucumbers, corn, possibly green beans) and some fresh mozzarella balls in a basil vinaigrette.

That sounds so fresh and delightful!

We're having grilled salmon, grilled corn on the cob, and sauteed zucchini and tomatoes.

I'm in a bit of a rut, as it's over 100 degrees here. Ick. I'm thinking. . . a festival of leftovers. My husband will eat the lonely leftover kebab with coleslaw. The kids will have quesadillas with meatballs (random, but they'll like it). I'll have a salad topped with leftover chicken from last night's dinner.

Last night I made Italian breaded Parmesan boneless pork-chops. They were delicious and the kids loved them. Not to mention easy to make so I like that!

Last night I made a zucchini lasagna (sliced a gigantic zuke lengthwise to make 'noodles') with ground turkey and red sauce, and a loaf of fresh Italian bread to sop up the juices.

Tonight is pizza night - last one with the half-whole-wheat dough that didn't turn out great, then it's time to make a new batch.

I'm canning chicken broth today, so my husband and son have requested chicken noodle soup for dinner.  Works for me. Less batches of broth that have to be run through the canner.

No pork - pulled pork veggieburgers. That's what it said on the pack that DH bought.
Potatoes sliced and baked in frying pan.
Carrots sliced in 4 lengst, smeared in with chili pepper, cummin, honey, butter and curry paste and baked in the oven. Recipe from cookbook Simple. Tasted very good. Nice to find a good new way to serve a cheap veggie like carrots.

Going to be chili (hey, it was cloudy and cool this morning, although the sun has come out since then...). Fresh corn, probably cornbread, and likely we'll have cabbage and carrot slaw with it (vinaigrette only, I dislike mayo)

If it doesn't rain again, grilled chicken with onions and bell peppers and a side of rice.

I'm about to toss a chicken in the smoker.  We'll be having a later dinner tonight.  Stopped by a local farmstand and got some beautiful broccolini, so I'll probably simply saute that with some garlic, and steam some homegrown carrots with butter and lemon.

Wraps for dinner tonight.

Pitta (flat) bread wrapped around left over roast beef from last week, salad mix, capsicum, cheese and greek yoghurt.  I fry up the meat with garlic, and put the pitta breads over the pan to soften and warm them, then add the fillings.  Wrap them up and you have a fantastic tasting meal.

Grilled salmon burgers (patties purchased at Costco), corn on the cob, and sliced cucumber. August is seriously the best produce month around here. The local produce is cheap and so fresh that it barely needs seasoning.

Funny, I had a little keto experiment tonight too.  I got a tiny waffle maker and made my first chaffle with cheddar, egg, jalapeno, green onion and cilantro.  It was surprisingly good!  Also had a big salad with some bleu cheese.

I hosted a meeting that didn't end until 6:45. Dinner was pasta* with dried tomato pesto that's a new and delicious item at Costco. Sausages from the freezer (Costco) and grilled asparagus. Yum.

*Found this neat, hollow spaghetti-like stuff at Grocery Outlet. I break it into random lengths, then pour boiling water ever it, and cook until al dente. Meanwhile, I defrost, then heat the sausages in the micro, while grilling the asparagus on the stove. Drain the pasta, stir in the pesto, grate a little lot of fresh parmesan on top, squeeze a little just-off-a-friend's-tree lemon on the asparagus and boom, dinner's done. I made individual lemon pudding cakes this afternoon for the meeting, with enough left over for my peeps. Of course, that means I got two. Hee.

I have found that, while I like chaffles, adding some riced cauliflower really helps the texture out.  I have a recipe for cauliflower/cheddar/jalapeno muffins that I've been wanting to try in the waffle iron.

Bucatini? Geez, Dicey, I've been looking for that around here for MONTHS, and you find it at the Outlet? aargh! (OK, if that's my biggest problem today, it's a pretty awesome day...)

We're probably having homemade tagliatelli: the oldest kid made pasta dough before he skipped town (to go to college, it doesn't need to sound nefarious) and it's been sitting in the fridge long enough to probably turn into concrete. If I can roll it out, we'll have it with some kind of tomato-based sauce, and green beans. Possibly something in there that contains protein: I should go search the freezer and see what we have.

I made a double batch of Smitten Kitchen's pistachio apricot bars yesterday, or else we'd be having lemon pudding cake, too. Maybe we can just all troop over to Dicey's?

Winner, winner, pasta dinner! Yes, it's Bucatini #12. I have two equidistant Grocery Outlets, and only one of them has it. Alas, it is the one that only has Senior Day every other week, so I didn't go there today, boo.

I got another batch of killer lemons, so if y'all give me an hour, I can make enough for everyone. Oh, wait! I only have 20 ramekins. Okay, we can do this if you sort yourselves into orderly groups...

Hmm, if I get a bigger waffle maker I will try that.  I just bought the mini Dash one, so one egg and like an ounce of cheese is all it will hold.  They are the perfect size for sandwich "bread" though.  I'm thinking of making them to use as buns for BLT's later this week since the best tomatoes are starting to come in.

Tonight was boring - big green salad with leftover chicken.

Tomorrow I think I'm going to do Tuscan butter mushrooms over spiralized zucchini, and we'll finish off the chicken.  I'm kind of obsessed with this mushroom recipe right now; it is lick the bowl good.

Not a problem.  I'll bring my own ramekin and 20 extra for the interlopers.

@horsepoor - that mushroom recipe is on my list to try. It looks delicious!

For tonight, we're having zoodles & meatballs for the adults, & spaghetti & meatballs for the carb eating kiddos.

Deal.

I have 8 small ramekins, 4 or 6 medium-sized ones, and one fairly large one -- if I bring the big one, may I have that much?

Back on topic, we had curried sweet potato, broccoli and pork, with basmati rice for those who wanted it. My mom's in town, and she was the one who was inspired with the indian spices and coconut milk.

I made tomato beef noodles in the instant pot. Stew the beef and tomatoes first, then add noodles for an additional few minutes. I spooned out half the meat before adding noodles to freeze for another meal.

Of course. Although I have about the same number of medium-to-large ones that I wasn't counting. How about if we make a big one for you and a big one for me, and at least a medium for dragonswan? I love lemon. I may, in fact, have eaten the last two for breakfast today, which is why DH and I are heading out for a nice little after-dinner amble.

It's late and my brain is fried. I was looking for something that wasn't chocolate that I could make enough of to easily serve 12. IIRC, it was the result of some serious google-fu. The blog is Once Upon A Chef. https://www.onceuponachef.com/recipes/lemon-pudding-cakes.html
I just love lemons, had a bunch to use up and had all the other ingredients in my pantry.

Notes: It's very forgiving. It's easy to double the recipe, which is as far as I'd push it due to the whole egg white volume issue. I may have accidentally doubled the double when I was doubling the butter the first time I made this. It turned out fine. The second time, when I measured the butter correctly, was fine too. I am going to try a batch with KA Whole Wheat Baking Flour. I also bought some "natural" margarine [shudder] to try, just for the hell of it. If I do, I'll report back.

There are helpful tips on her blog in the comment section. I reduced the sugar by 25% to no ill effect. Someone suggested that mixing the lemon zest with the sugar was a good trick, even though it messes up the ingredient order a bit. I grated the zest onto a cutting mat, then dumped the sugar on top of it and used a large spatula to smush it together. It was fun and I think it Sugared Lemon Zest might be a really good, cheap and easy edible gift.

Warm Lemon Pudding Cakes By Jennifer Segal
Spoon into these lovely little lemon pudding cakes and discover a layer of luscious lemon pudding beneath the cake!
Servings: 6
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 45 Minutes
Total Time: 1 Hour 5 Minutes
INGREDIENTS
   3 large eggs, separated
   1 cup milk (low fat or whole)
   2 teaspoons lemon zest, from 2 lemons
   6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, from 2 lemons
   2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
   1/4 teaspoon salt
   6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
   1 cup sugar
   Fresh berries and Confectioners' sugar, for serving (optional)
INSTRUCTIONS
1.   Preheat the oven to 350F and set a rack in the middle position. Spray six (6-oz) ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.
2.   In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, lemon zest, lemon juice, butter, and salt. Add the flour and sugar and whisk until smooth.
3.   In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. (The peaks should curl when you lift the beaters out of the bowl.) Spoon about 1/4 of the egg whites into the lemon mixture and whisk until smooth. Add the remaining egg whites and, using a rubber spatula, gently fold into the lemon mixture until smooth. The batter will be light, foamy, and liquidy.
4.   Place the prepared ramekins into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Ladle the batter evenly into the ramekins (it will come almost to the top). Using a teapot or pitcher, pour room temperature water into the pan to reach halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Carefully place the baking pan in the oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the cakes are puffy and lightly golden on top. Using tongs, carefully remove the ramekins from the baking dish and let cool on a rack for about 20 minutes before serving. (They will sink a bit as they cool; that's okay.) Dust with Confectioners' sugar and serve with berries, if desired.
5.   Make Ahead: The cakes can be made a day ahead of time. Once completely cool, cover the cakes with plastic wrap and store at room temperature. Before serving, preheat the oven to 350F and set a rack in the middle position. Remove the plastic wrap and place the ramekins on a baking sheet; heat for 10-15 minutes, until warmed through.

OMG this sounds soooo good!!!
I'm definitely putting lemons on my shopping list.

Edit: Just remembered that I'm trying to lose weight and on a diet :'(

Baked two chickens in the oven they were only 39cents a pound. Also made baked potatoes and beets. Plenty of chicken leftover for sandwiches today.
