I wish my wife liked olives.
counterpoint: more olives for you
how is she feeling?
She's doing really well! Thanks for asking.
We went on a walk a few days ago, she's still relearning some of her fine motor skills and she gets really dizzy with too many direction changes and with things like stepping down from a curb, so I have to sort of support her and we walk really slowly and a guy on a park bench told us we looked so lovely together it made him cry. It was very nice.
This was so overwhelming and with everything else going on in the world it really felt almost like it was too much but, strangely, all of the outpouring of love and support has given us a lot of hope.
I'm just so, so thankful I didn't lose her.
I teared up reading this tbh
So happy y'all have each other and she's doing well
king brunch stuff
spanish fried egg over gouda/cheddar grilled cheese w/ arugula, with pork sausage & baby red potatoes
Making linguine with hot Italian sausage and zucchini tonight
I'm grilling pork chops tonight.
Also just put a blueberry pie in the oven but I didn’t use a recipe. Wish me luck!
Also likely making this tomorrow with rice and beans
Jamaican Jerk Chicken
I’ve been down on food for a while but IM BACK BABY
this looks amazing!!
Thank you! I hope the filling sets! We’ll find out in a few hours :)
Threw together a quick salad with grilled zucchini/corn/shrimp, red onion, tomatoes, feta, cilantro, and lime juice. Really nice to not have to use the oven.
Grilled pork chops, lemon oregano vinaigrette, and some veggies
I made pork last night! Another round of DiNic’s copycats will be in my near future.
I ordered the fresh n lean meal delivery service which delivers prepared meals that are vegetarian and low cal low carb. It's pricey but I got a promo code so I thought I'd try it. I ate one today and it was like a cauliflower veggie bowl with a sauce. It was pretty good! My concern is that it was pretty low on both calories and carbs which I know is what I requested, but like not enough calories to really constitute a meal. But it's nice when I've worked all day and can just pop it in the microwave. I will just have to supplement them with snacks throughout the day if they're all that low cal. Like I want it to be low cal in a reasonable way!
Was all excited to make ramen when I realized I forgot to get miso. Fried rice was a solid backup.
My take on jerk chicken for the first time! I fucked up and didn’t defrost the chicken thighs last night so I made it kinda teriyaki style. Served with rice and beans with allspice (!!!!! I’m kind of shocked at myself for using that because I only use allspice in Christmas cookies) and an avocado salad with corn. Yum! Came out awesome. I used the marinade from the recipe above but omitted five spice because I didn’t have it.
I’ve been up since four, smoking a brisket. Today was suppose to be the only day not to rain and now I just checked the radar and there’s a big storm headed my way...
Okay biggest issue with my prepared ahead of time meal delivery service thingy is how little variation there is between meals. They all have the exact same ingredients that are made very similarly with only slight differences and it's only day three and I'm already kind of over it
That would get old to me super quickly. Hope you can find something that fits your needs for a more long term scenario!
My dad is bringing me eggs this week so I’m baking more bread to give him a loaf. Happy I can do something for him directly since we can’t spend time together.
Also I’ll be doing my roast pork sandwiches in a day or two and I’m super excited. I’ll try that oven fry recipe again with a few tweaks.
Making pizza dough for pizza tomorrow and shrimp po’boys on Friday. I might try making my own bread for the po’boys.
Not a great photo but this brisket took 12hrs and I was starving.
