    It’s an opportunity to share recipes if you wish.

    Last night I prepared some salad with pasta, chicken, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and avocado for my mom. She got home too late and barely ate anything.:oops:

    I'm playing safe today, I'm making chicken burgers. :p

    A common meal for me when I can get my wife to make tacos (she's Mexican). :D

    I only ate up half the homemade pizza I did :p
    I swear there's a pizza beneath that ruccola.
    Can definitely snack on it later, love snacking on cold pizzas
    Guess I was drinking too much whey protein and eating a protein-bar too before, directly after spinning, starving.
    After eating the half pizza, the protein hunger made me eat yet another bar.

    Meal I could eat every day (and did so for a month to recover from ulcerative colitis it worked great (note: I did not use any Salsa or beans when I had UC)):
    Shredded Chicken Burritos.
    - 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
    - 4 cups no salt added chicken stock (not broth)
    - 4 tsp Knorr Chicken Boullion Granuales
    - 2 tsp garlic powder
    - 1 Tbs Onion Powder
    - 2 tsp Cumin
    - 2 tsp Dried Oregano
    - 1/4 Cup Herdez Salsa Verde
    - 2 Tbs Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (About one fresh lime)

    Place all ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil and simmer at low for at least one hour. Remove chicken from pot. Shred with forks. Return to pot and bring back to a boil then simmer on another 15 minutes. You can cook this all longer and have more flavor seep in. Just add water as necessary.

    Filling:
    Guacamole
    - Three Ripe Hass Avacado (nearly black and soft) - Florida Avacado also work but they aren't as creamy
    - Lime Juice squeezed from one lime
    - 3 Tbs Herdez Mild Salsa
    - 1/4 tsp Salt

    Just mash up and cover until ready to serve. Guacamole does turn brown when exposed to air. You can slow this by sealing the top with plastic wrap against the guacamole.

    La Constena Whole Pinto Beans: I just heat up in a small pot. They are already seasoned. Usually two cans.

    Kraft Mexican Cheese Blend or a mix of extra sharp cheddar and parmesan

    Romaine lettuce chopped

    Yellow onion diced

    Herdez Salsa Verde and Mild Salsa

    Lite Sour Cream

    La Banderita Flour Tortilla

    This recipe is lower sodium than many of you are probably used to. I'd rather let people add their own salt. I'd consider this meal fairly high in salt. Most stuff I make is much lower sodium.



    Favorite meal but I'd get sick of:
    Tri Tip Beef (normally I just use Chuck Roast but tri tip is the best, sometimes I substitute pork loin/tenderloin/butt)
    - Slow baked in the over at 200F all day
    - Marinated the day before with a home made dry rub using an Emeril Lagasse recipe
    - Coated with BBQ sauce and wrapped in foil

    Sides:
    Bushs Grillin Beans - Southern Pit Barbeque
    Zucchinni and Yellow squash - marinated in lemon juice, soy sauce and balsamic vinegar
    Home Made Biscuits - J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits recipe from allrecipes.com
    Corn on the cobb -Boiled then rolled in butter


    Really there's a lot of meals I prepare which are very good. Turkey, Beef Wellington, Lasagna, beef ribs, burgers, pork roast and so forth. Along with many other Chinese, Italian, Indian, Mexican, French and English dishes. I just couldn't handle them every day. While I love pepperoni pizza. It would give me too much heartburn.

    And it tasted as good as it looks. :D

    My wife 'cheats'. She uses canned roast beef (usually Hormel) for the meat and Herdez for the salsa. Frying the corn tortillas is nothing to her though, she's done it for so long.

    But for a white boy whose idea of homemade tacos was hard shells, ground beef and no salsa this is a feast. Of course, if she went to all the trouble to hand make everything, it'd probably be my last meal as it would be so good.

    My wife is a really good cook, so I lucked out that way.

    My step daughter stopped by. She’s a lovely young woman. She lives across town with her mother and mom’s significant other. I sent food home with her ‘cuz that’s what parents do. Haha.

    Baked mac & cheese. I think it’s her favorite comfort food.

    Poor picture of beef tenderloin with wine sauce and broccoli.

    I experimented with a broccoli (onion & chive) purée and goat cheese. It’s rich so a little goes a long way.

    That steak looks really good. I love steak and it's pretty much one of my basic food groups so any time I see a good looking steak it makes me want one. :D

    home brew stir fry - yellow and red peppers, garlic, scallions, tofu, handful of chopped mixed salad greens, some diced up zucchini, canola oil, leftover rice from previous day, soy sauce, splash of rice vinegar, half a slosh of sesame oil, couple shakes of red pepper flake... 10 minutes to cut up and 5 min to cook... tried not to wolf it down, looked pretty good and tasted even better...

    ^^ We are so short of appropriate emoticons sometimes. :D

    The egg actually looks good to me, you may have solved my "what's for dinner?" du jour.

    Last night Jason’s Deli mixed Up Nutty Salad with chicken, and feta cheese, the absolute best salad I’ve found for purchase.

    Before that, Crab Imperial. Recipe in the MacRumors Unofficial Recipe thread. :)

    I’m aggravated because I was going to take a picture of a plate of sliced tomatoes, half an avacado, cottage cheese, and a slice of ham, but it got eaten too quickly! :oops:

    An omelette - cooked rare, slightly runny, as is servd in France - made from organic, free range eggs, (bought last Saturday from the farmer whose hens had laid them within the previous day or so) with finely chopped chives.

    Some incredibly spicy Asian takeaway, that wasn't supposed to be that hot to begin with, and I even ordered it "mild". So yeah, I'm pretty much sitting here burning up and sweating all the while wondering why I haven't bought milk in ages.

    It's a shame, if it wouldn't have been so spicy, I imagine it would have been delicious. Also it was my first real meal in close to 24 hours, so that's kind of a bummer as well.

    Heat wave today or was that me losing it in P'RSI again. Anyway, dinner is just strawberries and some goat cheese with a few sesame crackers. I had an omelet in mind until I realized I'd have to put fire under a pan. No way.
