  • We're having a fridge cleanout lunch...
    extra hot dog buns layed out on a pan with leftover spaghetti sauce and cheese plus leftover sauted onion and mushroom topping for the adults
    aka PIZZA! : )

    Certainly not my favorite Friday meal, but I like what it does to my fridge space.

    Nice! Reminds me of a Garfield Cartoon where he and Jon are cleaning out the fridge of leftovers on a Sunday, and they make a sandwich with peanut butter, peas, pickles and everything else a mile high- of course Garfield loves it lol.

  • This is what I had for lunch today:



    SSSSLLLURP! Yum! Goooood. Its called "Aguachiles" (Literally translated, Water Chiles) Its shrimp, cooked in lime or lemon juice, add a large amount of Serrano chili pepper salsa, avocado, onions and cucumbers and presto!

    I forgot to bring my lunch from home today, so I was able to go out and eat it. Though eating out is WAAAAY too expensive for a regular basis.

    Looks good.  Today I had about 5 or 6 small eggs fried on kaiser rolls with mustard and some canned herring.  Ugh - maybe it's a bit much.  Cooking for myself  :cry:

    Kaiser rolls sound good; the herring too. But I'm doing this hole no carb thing as I've really gained too much weight lately.

    It's been so hot here that I just can't eat as much.  So I'm losing a bit.  I sympathize with you - it's so easy to eat the excess calories - so hard to burn them.

  • Breakfast:  Bagels with cream cheese
    Lunch:  Shrimp Alfredo with Pasta
    Dinner:  Homemade baked potato soup with a slice of toasted bread.

    Last Friday:  Eggplant Parmesan

    I have so many recipes!  I love, love Fridays!  

    One of my family's favorites is vegetarian chile made with tomatoes, 3 kinds of beans, corn, and spices.  I make my own tortilla chips to go with it.

  • It's fish and macaroni for dinner here.

    My favorite Friday fare is fettuccine alfredo tossed with shrimp, artichoke hearts, and black olives, but I rarely make it as it's a pricey meal.

     :ready-to-eat:

    12 oz dried egg fettuccine
    1 stick (1/2 cup) plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (4 oz) plus additional for sprinkling
    2/3 cup heavy cream
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper

    Cook fettuccine in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water* until al dente. Reserve 1/4 cup cooking water, then drain pasta in a colander.

    Melt 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) butter in a 2- to 3-quart flameproof gratin dish over low heat. Add cooked pasta and toss to coat, lifting strands. Add cheese, reserved cooking water, cream, remaining 3 tablespoons butter (thinly sliced), salt, and pepper and toss to combine well. Sprinkle with additional cheese and serve immediately.

    * When salting water for cooking, use 1 tablespoon salt for every 4 quarts of water.

  • This is kind of late for this Friday, but you just have to try it.

    The person who gave me this recipe does not like tuna, nor do I, but she told me I would love it in this recipe and she is correct.

    Its one of those recipes that you really don't measure.  

    Perfect to take on a family picnic too.


    Boil about 4 - 5 eggs, hard boiled, let cool, peel and cut in small pieces.
    Cook some macaroni, drain and add to the bowl.
    Cut up a sweet onion, or one of those purple ones are good too.  Two onions if you like onions. Add a few green onions also (optional).
    Cut up several tomatoes, the more the merrier, and save the juice to add into the mixture, so cut them on a plate in order to save the juice.
    Open a couple of cans of tuna, I like the white tuna.  Drain of course, and mix all of the above in a large bowl.  
    Now add to the mixture some mayonnaise and if you like, add a little ranch dressing with the mayonnaise depending on your taste.  Mix it all up.  
    I don't add salt but if you prefer to go ahead.
    This salad tastes best COLD.  So refrigerate it so the macaroni, eggs, can cool, and all the ingredients blend together.

    Everyone that has ever tasted this loves it.

    My opinion is the tomatoes make the salad and I wouldn't even bother if I wasn't going to add tomatoes.  

    I hope those of you who try this will come back and brag about it.

  • We like to eat fish but since it's pretty expensive, that's just one Friday a month or so, or it's tuna casserole for the fish night.

    Other Fridays it's mac n cheese, and sometimes
     we mix a can of tomatoes or sauce in it, or it's some type of egg dish, like an omelette or a quiche, or cheese pizza with pineapple, tomatoes and maybe some onions and green pepper - whatever's in the fridge.  

    Another dish uses white sauce as a base (butter, a little flour and then stir in milk) and throw in some onion and celery and then when the celery is tender stir in some sliced boiled eggs.  Serve over toast, noodles or rice.  This is one of our budget meals.   (Cheese always seems to be going up in price.)

  • Yesterday

    Breakfast: Cold cereal and fruit.  (It's either that or a bagel with cream cheese every morning.

    Lunch: a Caesar  salad and some more fruit.  (Someone brought really good strawberries to work and shared them.

    Dinner: Fish and popcorn (Go ahead and laugh.  When I am cooking just for myself it usually something like that.  If you can call that cooking.)
