In the kitchen
lizzie lizzie I am so glad she was able to visit with you! :hugs: I hope she was able to eat a bit and enjoy being with you.

The last of the turkey (what I did not put in the freezer). I made turkey pot pie. Rick likes beef pot pie more, but he thought tonight’s was good, too. I doubled the rolled dough noodles and he scarfed it down. There’s barely enough for his lunch tomorrow. ApplesAuden and cranberry relish.

I have to say...she's really a trooper!I don't know what I expected with her chemo,but either she's more tough than I thought,she's handling it well.She ate really well and had some dessert too.She has lost some weight and she is kinda pale but we're just blessed.I don't know if the more treatments will bring on more reactions...thank you.As I said we are truly blessed.

I think tonight will be breakfast for dinner - scrambled eggs with veggies. I'm going to skip the bread because I've been eating too many carbs lately. But I won't skip my dark chocolate almond butter cups for dessert. 😉

lizzie lizzie Sending special thoughts to your daughter-in-law. 💞 I hope she is able to keep her positive outlook and handle the upcoming treatments. :hugs:

A Morningstar chik patty sandwich on a hamburger bun, and I had leftover tofu from yesterday, so I just sautéed it up with some coconut aminos. Which means my meal was mostly soy and probably not that healthy, lol.

Also had an iced sugar cookie almondmilk layte from the Jewel Starbucks.

Boxed! The frozen Mac and Chao is still the best substitute
Ha! I already have all these Mac & Cheeses on my Wishlist that you guys are mentioning! I guess I put every one that exists on there.

closest arbys is a 30 minute drive
Every restaurant is 30 minutes from here!

I always ask for dressing on the side in case I don't like it. Good thing I did because I hated the dressing
I hate most dressings, except Thousand Islands.

Lunch: 2 slices dad's homemade bread toasted with 1TB Eco Bee Farms Organic Honey, 1TB Honey Acres Cinnamon Honey Spread, 1/4 cup Aldi Tropical Trail mix- dried pineapple, papaya, cranberries, raisins, banana chips, almonds, cashews.

Dinner: Aldi Vegetarian Nuggets, French's Honey Mustard dip, finished up 1/2TB Baron's Blazing Hot Sauce, Amy's Cauliflower Mac & Cheese Baked in the toaster oven, Price Chopper frozen mixed veggies- peas, carrots, corn, green beans, and a handful of Aldi Tropical Trail Mix dried fruit/nuts.

Mac & Cheese was a billion times better baked in the toaster oven than the microwave! Thanks for the suggestion. I probably would have bought like 20 mac and cheeses on my wishlist and hated them all in the microwave. So you guys saved me wasting money.

Lunch: Ramen Express Hotter & Spicier microwavable ramen cup. This was so good and so spicy! Didn't even need to add anything. I would have liked more veggies in it, but it was fab.

Dinner: Taco Salad made with Vietti Vegetarian Chili, Lundberg Brown Basmati Rice, Target Hot Chunky Salsa, Sabra Guacamole, Great Value Sour Cream, Hot Mama's Too Hot habanero sauce, Aldi Multigrain Tortilla Chips. I forgot to put cheese on it! But it was amazing.

I didn't get my subscription delivery today. Just got a response to my email and was told that deliveries are delayed by a day this week because of the holiday last week. Wish an email was sent out informing subscribers of that ahead of the holiday or a notice placed on the ordering page :bat: Dinner ended up being leftover rice pilaf (one more small serving of that left) and frozen breaded chicken strips.

Tonight will be a fried chicken dinner bowl. The leftovers are gone, finally, except for several individually-wrapped single-sandwich servings of tureky breast. The rest went to the ferals, who were quite appreciative of it all. And surprisingly polite about sharing!

All the talk about commercial mac and cheese got me thinking. The best I've ever had was the cheap Banquet individual size frozen stuff that came in the tin pie pans (before microwaves). I LOVED that stuff as a child!

stuffed acorn squash and switched the cranberries for raisins. Husband didn't think it sounded good,
That sounds good to me. But yeah, I bet my dad would be like Ewww! He's not very adventurous.

Well that explains why it was so good...before microwaves! It tastes terrible in the microwave. :thumbsup:

Lunch: I had this Margaret Holmes canned Succotash. It was not what I was expecting. It was really watery, almost like eating a can of diced tomatoes. Was I supposed to drain it or use in a recipe? I added garlic parsley salt, black pepper, and Hot Mama's Too Hot habanero hot sauce, but it didn't help. Ate it in a bowl, kinda like soup. Terrible.

Dinner: Taco Salad again, but with a few variations from last night-- Vietti Vegetarian Chili, Lundberg Brown Basmati Rice, Target Hot Chunky Salsa, Wholly Guacamole, Great Value Sour Cream, Hot Mama's Too Hot habanero sauce, Late July Multigrain Tortilla Chips, Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.

I made some angel hair pasta with a vegan pesto (Gotham Greens brand), and didn't make nearly enough, so remembered I had yellow potatoes because I had to buy a bag rather than individually, so microwaved a couple and had them with fake sour cream as well.
