Ring The Dinner Bell

I bet you knew this was coming – a recap dinner post of things that have graced my plate in the past few weeks. Enjoy!


Sautéed pattypan squash, mushrooms, and brussel sprouts.


Mom’s homemade split pea & barley soup, with a tasting plate – carrot, cucumber, snap peas, pineapple, and homemade baking powder biscuits.


Sausages and gravy, with smashed potatoes and steamed broccoli invading the picture.


Take out fish (halibut) and chips from our preferred location – C-Lovers. I always called it Clovers as a kid. It took me awhile to get it.


Good ol’ cheese sandwich, with a sliced gala apple, snap peas, and peanut butter for dipping.


Mom’s amazing salmon loaf, rice with soy sauce, cucumber, and kale chips seasoned with nutritional yeast.


Something we eat often – homemade macaroni and cheese, with a side salad, carrots, and asparagus. That is a balsamic/dijon mustard dressing I made on the salad. Mom said I should have taken the picture before putting the dressing on, because it’s ugly and brown. What do you think?


Stuffed pork chip, half a giant baked potato with a little cheddar cheese, and steamed green beans.


Brown rice California rolls that I picked up one night after work. Gotta love working in a grocery store with decent take out sushi!


Beef stew! With dumplings and all that jazz.


BBQ chicken quesadilla, topped with refried beans, salsa, sour cream, and avocado. Nom nom.


Tuna melt on an English muffin – tuna, dill pickles, and aged white cheddar. Good ol’ kale chips on the side. Limonata in the background.

Wow, looking that that recap, you can really see how often mom likes to cook her “standard” meals – mac & cheese, stew, salmon loaf, sausages & gravy, split pea & barley soup. It also makes me realize how much I need to find some time to create fun things in the kitchen – I miss falafel, curry, stir fry. Good thing school is so close to being done. Then I’ll have plenty of time to bust out the cookbooks and get cooking.

What do you think I should try my hand at making? Seriously, I need to get back in the kitchen to do something fun for dinner. I love ethnic eats – suggest something!

Look out for some regular “day of eats” posts coming up soon!

    Yay for patty-pan squash! How about making something Indian?

    OMG I was totally going to say Ethiopean! If you figure out a way to make their bread, let me know!

    Try making at home sushi! I would love to do that. I have no other ideas, I’m pretty boring in the kitchen these days…

    What about an Indian curry? 🙂 or maybe something like butter chicken?

    Sushi at home is really easy and fun to make, too!

    Where’d you go to get the fish and chips? As in the location of the C-lovers.

    I’d agree with something etheopian… I’ve never seen any of it, so it would be nice to see.
