You guys are making me salivate!!!
Yummmmmmmmmm, Yummmmmmm, Yummmmmmmmmmmm!!!

My husband and I are going to try a restaurant that has been here for ages but we haven't gone into yet. You see... it is very well known for its burgers BUT... it was also very very well known for its smoking environment, so I never wanted to go in there. Of all the stupid things they did a few years ago, they put in a non-smoking room as was the law then, but you had to walk through the bar and smoking room to get to it - NO THANKS!!!

So, now with the no smoking in any restaurant in NY we can finally try the food there! Yea!!! [thumb]
And... our daughter is over at friends', so it'll be just us.

Those recipes sound really goooooood - gonna have to try them when we are all scheduled to eat here at the same time! Gotta love teenagers, and a husband who is obsessed with his yoga classes after work! [dunno] [Roll Eyes]

by plants 'n pots on March 23, 2004 04:13 PM
Yep - we did indeed get to the restaurant.
After a 25 minute wait at the bar - not too bad for 7:30 on a Saturday night... we were seated at a teeny table for 2 - the place was mobbed.
The food came out VERY quickly - hamburgers are their specialty - I got a spinach mushroom burger - what a MESS!!! But DELICIOUS!!!
My husband got a cheddar mushroom - also very good.
The most noticable thing was how very HOT the food came out. Often here we have to send the food back because it comes out ice cold - these burgers were sooooo hot that we could hardly bite into them for several minutes - wonderful!
The food was very inexpensive too, and the waitresses were bustling around like crazy - my husband left an extra generous tip - we could not believe how devoted they were to their jobs. [thumb]

How was your dinner? Bet it was delicious!

Hey Weezie... can you swing that jet a bit southward on your way west? I'd love to join ya! [thumb] [Big Grin] [wayey]

Wish some of you would come here and cook for us!
If I say PRETTY PLEASE?!?

My mother and I did a needlepoint wallhanging for her kitchen when I was a teen - it said:
SCREW HOMECOOKING! [Embarrassed] [nutz] [perplexed]

I am not kidding - she has a great sense of humor, but hated to cook! When we lived with my parents when our son was 2-4 years old he would ask her what the picture said and she told him
"Grandma doesn't like to cook!"
I'll never forget that! [Big Grin]

A thought that just entered my mind...

Did anyone see one of the Oprah's last week...she did a chicken recipe. You basically take a whole roasting chicken and cut the back out of it and then put it in a gallon ziplock bag. Put some olive oil in it, salt and pepper, some rosemary that has been pulled apart a little bit, and a red onion cut up. Put it in the frig from 2 hours to 2 days (the longer the more flavor it soaks up). Then you just dump it all into a cassarole dish, cover with foil and bake......voila...dinner. I did that on Monday and it was sooooo good. I cut up some yellow and red peppers with it too. And did some yukon gold potatoes made into mashed potatoes (those make thebest, ya know!!) Its definately a time saver ofa recipe! Oh yeah.....put some lemon juice in that bag too. [teacher] [critic]

Tonight we went to a Chinese Buffet with
a bit of Italian/Amereican food mixed in the buffet line.......

I only eat the mixed veggies with the Broccoli and white rice, but then I tried a couple of other veggie dishes, and I LOVE those hard noodles with the soy sauce...

Hubby and Father~in~Law had shrimp (about 5 different ways), and meatballs, and something on a stick but I don't want to know!!! Something squwishy looking that was chicken and honey sauce or something,...
Desserts were fresh watermelon, musk and cantalope, pineapples, and apples, jello, chocolate pudding and of course those fortune cookies!!! (Each one of the fortune's inside HIT each of us right on the button, it was ironic!!)

Oh, My, Gosh, open both sets of doors and roll us out!!! YUMMMMY!!!!

We had a simple meal tonight......fish, and mac and cheese, and apple cobbler.....

But, later today will be a feast. Dennys for my free BD meal in the morning(it's a tradion--and why not, it's free?), BBQ in the afternoon, and dinner at the in laws a little after that.....time for the elastic waisted pants maybe......lol [Big Grin]
by hisgal2 on April 13, 2004 04:48 AM
Tonight was chicken and salad....although I opted for cereal for some reason. I just didn't feel like eating the chicken that I had made.

Hey Weezie...wanna know the fun thing about fortune cookie messages??? Add the phrase "in bed" to the end of any of them and it makes them halarious!!! [Big Grin]

Tomorrow I am making salmon. I don't know how tho. Anyone have an idea?? My father-in-law was in Alaska during salmon season, so we have a freezer full of salmon fillets. Its soo good fresh like that. Not like the stuff you get at
the fish market.

So, this week is the last week of "freedom" for us. Next week we plan to start the South Beach Diet. The first 2 weeks of it is no dairy, bread, fruit, sugar.....very rough. But after that its good...they reintroduce all of that stuff then. We really need to loose the weight (and never find it again! [Big Grin] ) So wish us luck!

Jennifer,
Did you do those salmon things yet???
I don't do the steaks or anything,
but my neighbor used to,
and she used to put her's on the grill
in one of those tinfoil bags...
*I think she made her own bag really*,
laid a big flat sheet on the counter top
and put the steaks in the middle and pulled
the sheet up over the sides!!!
I don't remeber exactly what she used to put in them, I should email her and ask!
Maybe something just like white wine...
I'll repost if she let's me know!

in the can with crackers and egg)

For the millionth time I had a build-it-yerself-everything-in-the-world-on-it salad at Cedars-Sinai Hospital cafeteria...with about a half-gallon of Ranch..

I've gained 9 lbs since JoAnn's been sick.. [shocked] [shocked] [shocked]

by weezie13 on April 20, 2004 03:40 PM
Jillie,
After eating salad for the millionth time,
I like to start mixin' my salad dressings
as a change!

I mix a little French with Italian (sometimes too with Green Olive juice).
A little each of Ranch, French and Blue Cheese.
Blue cheese and Ranch.

That way it's like you're eating a different
type of salad everytime, and you don't tire them as easily!!

What else they got on the menu at that hospitol??
My mom loves eating at our local one, she says
they have some nice selections there.!!
(she's been not feeling well the last couple of
days either, and went for a doct. appt. and she
had to eat dinner there!)

by hisgal2 on April 21, 2004 08:10 PM
Weezie~ we make our own foil pouches too. Its way easy and sooo much cheaper than going out and buying them already done. Side note...I don't think the bought pouches would be long enough anyways. The salmon that was caught in Alaska is about 2 foot long!!! Anyways, Stephen made some sort of seasoning by mixing up a bunch of stuff and rubbing it on the salmon and then fried it up in a pan. I usually put it in a pouch and put some chopped rosemary leaves on it, some salt and pepper, some lemon juice...or thinly sliced lemon....and sometimes some dill. Thats about it.

So you were talking about salad up above and it hit close to home. Since we started our diet (which is a really nice one, by the way) we eat salad EVERYDAY. It goes with everything that we make for dinner. We're not aloud to have any sugar at all(there is sugar in dressings), so its hard for me to be happy with salad because I like ranch (which has dairy in it and we're not aloud to have dairy right now) and I like Italian, which has sugar in it. I'm going to go out and look for sugar free italian. ANYWAYS, I've gotten a little creative with my salads. Lately its been different lettuces, eggs, 1 slice of turkey lunchmeat, no more than 12 almonds, broccoli, chopped zucchini, sliced asparagus, and a home made dressing that really isn't too bad. Oh....and since we started the diet on Monday, I'm pleased to announce that I've already lost 3 pounds!!! [grin] [grin] We're only supposed to get on the scale once a week...but I HAD to look to see!!! [Embarrassed] [Big Grin]

Jennifer,
Congrat's on loosing the pounds (could you
loose a few for me too while you're at it! [thumb] )

In the summer I love Romaine
*which is the best for you,
roughage wise and nutrients*
and then
Apple Cider Vinegar
*which is great for loosing weight*
and then I sprinkle Kosher Salt.
I like the coarseness of it, but not too
much if you're watching your salt....

I could eat 10lbs of that salad!!!

I'm not watching my salt...I actually have LOW sodium! [shocked] I will try your dressing sometime this week or next week. I just have to get to the store and get apple cider vinegar.

The diet is prety easy and I recommend it to anyone who wants to lose. The South Beach Diet. There is a book out that explains all sorts of stuff....but its pretty easy to live with and your never hungry......unless you make yourself hungry!!! The first two weeks are hard, but if you can get through that, then its cake from there.....literally!! [Smile]

I need to go on a diet...but I love to eat way too much to ever stick to one. I always cheat lol [grin] Tonight for dinner I had a sweet tooth so I made homemade belgium waffles with blueberries, strawberries & whip cream. Yummy!!! Good thing gardening weather is here...I need to get back to eating fresh veggies again...I have been craving fresh green peppers & ripe tomatoes like mad. You just can't buy them in the grocery store like you can get them out of the garden.
