I am so tired and don't even know what I'm making.

Chicken and potato bowls

I'm making a "base" meal of chopped, cooked chicken breast and cubed, roasted potatoes. My family adds their own toppings--my son and I like Buffalo wing style toppings, my husband likes taco salad toppings, and my daughter eats hers mostly plain. We will have green beens and cut pears on the side.

This sounds good!

We'll probably order Thai food.

We don't have any fresh food in the house.

I just saw Trisha Yearwood make grilled sandwiches that made my mouth water.
1. Make your fave grilled sandwiches (I think hers were cheese and tomato—I only saw the end of the segment because I was busy with plugs).
2. When they’re toasted, lift and put a small pile of shredded cheese under the sandwich, then put the sandwich on top of the cheese.
3. Let it melt and crisp a bit, then repeat on other side.

I want one!

DH took heart on my achy body and made scrambled eggs. I had OT yesterday which left me feeling like my hands were going to fall off. This morning I had PT. It helped my neck but fired up my knee and hip.

All I want for Christmas is a new body.

This: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/...-pasta-2580741

We've got just one at home right now so when the young adults come home between semesters or on weeks off work out of town, we cook real food. The youngest has noticed that when it's just she, DH and I, grilled cheese, cold cereal, frozen burritos are all fair game.

Yup.

A new recipe with sweet sausage, parpadelle, butternut squash, a tiny bit of cream, white wine, chicken broth, onion, garlic, a bit of cheese, lemon zest...I LOVE cooking new things. This was yummy!

We ate far too much last night so tonight we are having salmon, green salad, and steamed broccoli topped with fresh mozarella. A simple and sensible dinner for us.

I had a piece and a half of apple pie that I made my husband go get from Costco. I was watching some holiday baking show and they were making slab pie. The apple pies were making my mouth water. Oh boy was it worth it.

I made the tortellini dish someone posted on her last week or so. It sounded so good I bought tortellini right away. Didn't follow the recipe exactly, but it was very good.
