Monday January 12, 2009 Dinner

Hot doggie! Chili dogs, to be precise. These are about as decadent good as it gets. Basic all-beef franks, white bread buns, beanless chili from a can, cheddar cheese, onions, jalapenos, and Fritos! Ole!

Sunday January 11, 2009 Dinner

Picked up some stuff from the grocery store's deli counter: pot roast, roasted veggies, and mac-n-cheese. Delicious, but not quite as good as it would've been home-made.

Saturday January 10, 2009 Dinner

Dinner out, PF Chang's, an upscale(ish) Chinese place. Great atmosphere, great service, pretty good food, though not up to expectations.

Friday January 9, 2009 Dinner

Pot pies..... Yummy, but not very exciting.

Wednesday January 7, 2009 Dinner

Big Caesar salad, with skinless chicken breast and bacon crumbles.

Tuesday January 6, 2009 Dinner

Stir fry variant, using leftover hamburger.
  • onion
  • beef broth
  • red wine
  • garlic
  • mushrooms
  • 1/3 pound pre-cooked ground beef patty, chopped
  • broccoli
  • bok choy
Cooked together in the order listed. About 30 minutes total, but the first 15 was a simmer between beef and broccoli to reduce the liquids.

Enjoyed this with a glass of zinfandel. Would have been good over rice or noodles, but I am fighting a holiday bulge.
