late dinner tonight... pork roast with onions, mushrooms, and garlic are in the oven now... mashed potatoes and green beans are done a bit early so I'll probably eat some of those while waiting for the rest (my timing is always bad!! good thing I'm just feeding me! lol).

Tonight is salmon steaks... looking up a cauliflower recipe... I seem to recall seeing a baked cauliflower recipe somewhere... I'm not sure if I'm making brown rice or sweet potatoes yet. Depends on how I make the cauliflower.

Sweet potatoes? Interesting, I am not sure I can see how that would go (but I will try it one day).

Tonight was supposed to be a goat cheese/eggplant fusilli, but D forgot to get pine nuts for the recipe. Backup plan is a homemade pizza with goat cheese, various peppers, garlic and whatever else we decide to throw on there.

Sounds to me like the cupcake was grossly outnumbered.

Last night the M-I-L cooked for the first time in a loooooooooong time. She made her awesome. awesome beef stew. The gravy is To. Die. For. :drool:

Tonight will be BBQ pork tenderloin, with grilled zucchini, steamed broccoli, and some sort of BBQ potato (maybe with carrots and onion :think: ), and a salad.

And really, chocolate comes from cocoa beans, so it basically counts as a legume.
