Wednesday's Dinner

jasdipJuly 9, 2014

Since no one has started tonite's thread, I will again.

It was a gorgeous day today, albeit cool, which I love.

Tonite I made pasta with a fresh tomato sauce. Sauteed diced tomatoes in lots of olive oil and garlic and some red pepper flakes.

Low 60s this morning and low 70s now, after a high near 80.

Pot roast in the slow cooker, seasoned with horseradish, along with potatoes and carrots. Add freshly made coleslaw and I had a big (maybe too big) meal.

There is always room for more at our table. Just let me know at least 30 minutes before arriving so that I can put on clean clothes.

Hot here today - around 95. I actually like hot weather. Would have liked it better if it was the weekend and I could have gone to the pool.

DH and I were supposed to go to a wine tasting tonight. He's had a bad headache all day and didn't feel like going. I ended up meeting friends there alone. It was very nice. DH had already eaten, so I stopped and got a frozen dinner from the grocery store for me.

Jojos was mentioned a few days ago as well. I too am curious.

I did not accomplish a lot today, but did get 3 nice zucchini out of our garden and another egg from Buttercup. The weather was perfect. I watched Alyssa forenoon till nap time and then this evening till after 9. My supper was a bowl of Frosted Rice Krispies.

JoJos are fried potato wedges. A potato cut into about 8 wedges and deep fried or roasted.

Thanks for the explanation, Angela. We love roasted potatoes, either cubed or wedges.

Sue, I love Buttercups's name! Is she a friendly hen?

Pizza, burgers, frozen dinners, grilled chicken, jojos, a lot of us eating light tonite.

"Zucchetti " is just a cutsie word for very thin strips of zucchini. I have a mandolin that can cut veggies into very thin, narrow strips and I use that a lot. But there is also a gadget that cuts the veggie into noodle shaped strips.

I made a quickie frittata with asparagus, onions, mushrooms, and cheese and a fresh picked salad of chard, cukes, and tomatoes.

I'm having a whole wheat pizza topped with veggies. Saw it while getting groceries today, I've never seen it before. It was really good.
I'm thinking about getting a mandolin so I can have zucchini spaghetti noodles. Will steal your word ! : )
