OT: Yum Yum!!

I know most people have their traditions and cook or eat certain things
on certain days, like holidays. well today i was feelin kinda low with
enough of a annoying headache I did not want to go across the street to
a cookout and listen to the LOUD music and put up with a couple who tend
to over indulge. So I COOKED!!
Now not to brag on meelf, but I like to and am a good cook. I do not
like to a lot in the summer but after getting up I looked and put
together a bunch of stuff I had. I did buy a eggplant the other daythat
I was going to put on the grill.
So what did I cook? I cooked a chicken eggplant parmaghaina. I had some
leftover HOMEMADE spaghetti sauce ithe freezer and used that as my base.
i put the breasts in a stoneware casserole dish,poured beer over them,
covered them with onions then came the zucchini and eggplant. I then
topped it with my sauce.
If i do not mind saying, it was quite deliciuos and have enough
leftovers for about three more meals!1
So what DID YOU HAVE?

I started a tradition years ago when a friend asked me to teach her how to make fried chicken on the 4th of July at her party. Now cooking enough chicken for about 40 people was the pits and I'll never do it again. BUT my kids have asked for it year after year, so for a family of FOUR I make fried chicken.

You can keep the eggplant, but pass the chicken please. LOL Nothing spectacular here. I worked my heinie off getting my parents' album sorted, scans stitched together, and had to go back and add 20-something spacers because the album looked like an alligator. LOL We kept supper nice and simple...hot dogs cooked on our little indoor grill (very yummy that way, I might add), and burgers. Good news is we have several leftover hot dogs!! LOL

Ah - I love a man who can cook!
My DB and I had a LOT of food - and he did most of the cooking - he's a GREAT cook - probably one of the highest functioning bachelor's I've ever met in that regard. Of course, sounds like Dave gives him a run for his money!
(Previous men in my life have specialized in grilled cheese sandwhiches or Macaroni and cheese at best!)
Anyway - we had grilled pork (marinated in something yummy for 3 days), BBQ chix w/homemade BBq sauce, sausages (I only had a bite, I was stuffed already) and a cprese salad, corn on the cob, and potatoes.
YUM!
Glad to hear ya'll had a great one!

We had french toast...lol. My husband had to work, and my car has a flat ( not that I drive many places anyway ). Victoria and I had french toast and watched the second half of My Fair Lady...then we walked down to the corner and watched fireworks through the roofs of houses. When we came home I pulled out some sparkler candles I had bought and never used. ( real sparklers are not allowed here )...they were not as fun as I had hoped...oh well....it was interesting at least.

Now that sounds wonderful...........EXCEPT..........Where is the cheese. I love eggplant parm. Never have put the chicken in it. But always lots of cheese.
I had the normal meals. Meat, lots of different veges. We don't eat rice or potatoes so that was depressing. I found out a month ago that I had high sugar. Dibeties. Hump is that how you spell it? Oh well you know what I mean. Anyway I miss my white rice and potatoes and white bread. Gone for good in my life with a whole lot more. I hate to cook and eat now. Use to cook big homemade meals with wonderful cakes. No more. Sob,sob,sob.

I know exactly what you mean. My husband has bouts with pancreatitis. Gone are the spicy foods from our dinner table. Sandy

In article ,
Irene hon... start looking for low carb pastas (yes they make them) and SUCRA is your new best friend.. my bil is diabetic and my mom is too.. and eats alot of pasta.. you can get whole wheat breads (can't eat as much but still) and that low carb pasta is getting easier to find!

Irene, I am a diabetic and I eat those things in moderation. My sugar is pretty well controlled by my medication. There are some great Diabetic cook books out there,too. I think I do better when I go by my exchanges and watch all the food I eat. I limit my bread to one serving a day and usually I choose a bagel with a tsp butter The butter can be substituted with tsp cream cheese. After awhile,you learn what you can and cannot tolerate. I think eating sensibly makes you feel less constrained. I use my potato as a starch and make a small baked potato... A tsp butter here is very satisfying,too My diabetc counseler stresses the more you eat normally... the better you will do. You won't feel so deprived.
