Please create the thread, no need to discuss it here on this thread which is just a log of what one has for dinner.

Also it doesn't matter if you made your dinner yourself or someone else did it for you. The main focus of this thread is what you ate.

You might want to look under the tag of cooking to see if existing threads might suit your needs.

Another dish that I whipped up this week, and my kidlets macked on was chicken cacciatorre - my kids whoofed down some zucchini and - loving it. A childhood favorite that my pops would cook was beef togue with carrots and potatoes - tender and tasty . I need to get my grandma's recipe from him. Oh...and one of my all-time favorites is making baby back adobo ribs - yum-o!!! My cooking is simple and very limited, but it seems to work when I pinch hit for the wifey. It certainly is relaxing and fun too.
================================================== ==
Yeah; all the stuff you make I like too. I make lots of stuff like this too. I love tongue, but my wife cannot stand the smell when boiling it. So I cannot make it. I make all the Japanese-type stuff too -- hekka, sukiyaki, pork tofu, etc.. I make beef tomato, beef brocolli, etc. Tonight I will make fried rice with shrimp and ham, and also bowls of look fun soup with gailan, roast duck, and char siu spare ribs on top. I got the gailan, roast duck, and char siu spare ribs from the Chinese deli BBQ down the street from me. Maybe this weekend I will make pot roast with brown gravy and veggies, and maybe my "kitchen sink" lasagna with garlic bread. I put in the lasagna noodles, layered with beef/onions/mushroom sauce, lots of cheeses, slices of Italian sausage, slices of hardboiled eggs (funky, I know, but tastes good), and lots of small, but whole mushrooms.

My wife and I will the Chinese stuff for dinner tonight, but I will bake a piece of red salmon with mayo/dill tonight for my daughter -- she requested that earlier in the week, but I did not feel like eating salmon. Speaking of salmon, I ate at a buffet place for a late lunch, so I did not eat dinner last night. But for my wife, I made fried salmon belly slices with rice, and a few fried slices of rib eye that I made cutlet style. I made like 1.5 pounds of salmon belly strips and about four big slices of rib eye. My wife and the two little dogs ate it all up for dinner.

another recipe from my "Mediterranean Diabetes Cookebook" called Tarragon Supreme of Chicken with Mushrooms. It had lots of lemon which meant lots of flavor. I served it with some garlic mash pototoes and some nice Sauvignon Blanc. It was VERY GOOD!!!! This cookbook is incredible and the recipes are very low sugar - tonites was zero sugar.

Thai Spicy Noodles, green garden salad with jicama and Nopal cactus strips, and hibiscus flower bud iced "tea". I make the Thai Noodles myself with Soba noodles, peanut butter, jalapeno peppers, garlic, lime juice, parsley, and other secret ingredients. Low in both fat and sugar. I put a little Tongan music on the machine and I'm in gastronomic paradise. Uaifi like too.

Since I live in tropical Mexico (about same latitude as the 808) I am often asked by people NOB (shorthand for north of the border) if I don't get tired of eating tacos and beans all the time. Fair question. Truth is I LOVE Mexican food but I probably eat it only half the time. For example, tonight's meal:

Stir fry of fresh (harvested this morning) Pacific scallops (these are the 'lion's paw" scallops that are 2 inches across) cut into 1/2" cubes, with fresh red bell pepper, julienned fresh asparagus, diced jalapeno chilis, in low sodium soy sauce. This was served over a bed of basmatic steamed rice. Salad was romaine lettuce, radishes, sliced baby portobello mushrooms, sliced carrots, with a lo cal ranch dressing. Beverage was hibiscus flower tea. Uaifi make all dat stuff. Matapule make desert. Baja lime pie in graham cracker crust. Matapule prefer Baja limes because they are more flavorful than Key limes. Baja limes are sabrosisimo!

So much for a strict diet of Mexican food.

One decent sized loco moco at Freddies in Hilo for $2.75. I think it's Hilo's best kept secret...until now.

That sounds delicious. The rice is Basmati. (I'm trying to lose weight, so I'd have to hold the rice.)

Greg, you are write, just another of my many malapropisms. I've dropped 25 pounds in the last 4 months on the way to dropping 60. I'm on Weight Watchers. Basmati rice fits in my diet.

Tonight I am having Cochinita Pibil, a dish from the Yucatan.

I skipped starches altogether for three months along with sugared drinks, going on an all protein diet coupled with salads (no dressing) and lost 25-lbs. Basically eliminating rice, pasta and sodas did it.

BUT tonight I cheated...Hamburger Helper...with the pasta helper.

That's similar to what I'm doing, though more radical (I have salad dressing and croutons). I think it's 4 years since I've had a soda, or any dessert other than fresh fruit. Today I expect to lose a couple of extra pounds, since I'm restricted to clear liquids and will spend the evening purging my bowel in preparation for a colonoscopy early tomorrow at Castle. Maybe I shouldn't have put this in the What's for Dinner thread.

Good luck with that bro. Had to do that dirty deed a couple of months ago. Dont know how I downed that gallon.

Anyway, I had soup and salad tonite. Way too much meat this weekend at parties.

I used a liquid, Fleet's Phospho-soda, for my first colonscopy, but pills for my last three. Pills are easier. But anyhow, that's over with now, and I celebrated with a warmed-up slice of Costco pizza (heated on a pizza stone, which I hope everyone has one of).
