A modest NY strip, medium rare, and steamed broccoli.

Fajita Thursday today. Will use the mesquite I brought back from South Texas for grilling.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

Socca, with olive oil for dipping, and mustard greens from the back yard garden.

Most everything at my house is packed for the move, so it's Hibachi Shrimp from Tokyo Grill for me. The fridge is unplugged and it won't be cold enough outside tonight to store the leftovers so I'll have to eat the whole thing. Darn the luck.

Never had the Olive Garden version, never was much of a fan of the place. But my homemade version with some toasted bread is quite nice.

Mrs Hov was back at school today so I made a hasty dinner for us---Ruben sandwiches---lean, warmed corned beef stacked high on toasted Jewish rye, a slab of Swiss melted on top, 1000 island dressing, and sauerkraut. Kosher dill spear and Cole slaw on the side.

Leftover spaghetti with kielbasa chunks.

The wife did the cottage pie recipe with turkey this evening. Basically pot pie with a mashed potato topping. Blasted good.

I had a hellacious headache so it was pizza for mom and the kids. I abstained.

Lucy's Cafeteria. The Lu-Ann plate for my wife, half a fried fish with tartar sauce, fried okra, white beans. I settled for trout almondine, broccoli, black beans with corn, and some bread pudding with rum sauce.

Yeah I chop them up and cook some onions with them, maybe peppers and mushrooms if I have them. Then put it on white bread and make a kind of steak grilled cheese.

Leftover soup and chicken salad croissants. I swear we eat better food when we're broke cause we have to get creative with what we have instead of grabbing taco bell on the way home.

Shoot-from-the-hip creamy turkey and rice soup. Used up most of the Thanksgiving turkey and all the remaining stock. Started off a little bit on the soupy side, but thickened up in the last few minutes just about perfectly.

Meatloaf, brussels sprouts, and scalloped potatoes at the mother-in-law's.
