What's For Dinner?








  1. Grilled salmon and Waldorf slaw.
  2. Chicken Minestrone.
  3. Spinach salad topped with shaved Parm, a tarragon chicken breast and warm bacon dressing.
  4. Air-fried chicken.
  5. Ham bone bean soup and skillet cornbread.
  6. Chicken and mushrooms in a garlicky mascapone sauce on rice.
  7. Bananas Foster French Toast.  I just kind of made this up, sauteing bananas in butter, brown sugar and a splash of rum. 
What's been on your dinner plate lately?

Also, thanks for all your get well wishes for Tiger.
He's shown some positive signs, like drinking on his own
from his water bowl, purring and looking a little more alert.
And most of all, scolding me when I force feed him broth or
cat milk with a syringe. haha.  But he still won't eat anything
on his own.  I'm not sure what his fate will be at this point.
I'm just going to try to give it my best shot and see where
we stand in a couple of days.  I'll admit to feeling this
overwhelming rise of anxiety in what might lie ahead for
the whole clan here.  But I need to put my energies 
toward this one for the next day or so before dealing
with all of that.

  1. I had just a venison burger with a side saddle, sorry, side salad. Nothing exotic. Yours looks delicious! Can I come to dinner one day?

    2. At £483 ($598.12)for the round trip to Columbus it would be an expensive dinner, but no doubt it would be worth it!

    3. That actually sounds very reasonable! And for all that effort, you should at least stay for breakfast, too! :)

      making it! haha.

    1. The air fryer is new and very nice. It's a Big Boss brand and I got it at a good price on ebay. That photo is from frying a whole chicken. Turned out amazing! I highly recommend!

  4. Had dinner at lunch time today. It was a really tasty chicken strip salad. Yours do look like restaurant perfect dishes. Now I am definitely hungry.
    Hoping for the best for your Tiger.

    1. That salad sounds wonderful! That's one of my favorites...chicken on a salad! :) Thanks for thinking of Tiger....

  5. Oh my. Each one of these meals I could cheerfully tuck into. Yum. Salmon always appeals to me, but I have been wondering about air fryers. Looks so good. But I only have a tiny countertop and not many cupboards so not much room for extra appliances.
    Fingers and paws crossed for dear Tiger!

    1. Yes, space is a downfall, isn't it? This thing is big, that's for sure. I'm fortunate enough to have a second pantry for such monsters. haha. Tiger's my main concern today....laundry and kitty care are the only things on the docket. :)

  6. Hi Betsy - glad Tiger is improving slightly - long may it go on and then all the best. Those meals always look so good ... and everytime I see Cornbread I get a jealous desire for some! The Banana toasts look just the thing for finishing off a supper - warm and cosy for winter ... take care - cheers Hilary

    1. I hadn't made cornbread in ages....so it tasted extra good. We don't really eat a lot of bread and pasta here, to it was a real treat!

  8. Oh mercy, but those meals look gooooood!!!!!!! Deeeelicious!

    Thank you for wonderful ideas!

    Happily my husband likes to cook, and since I don't, it is wonderful. He doesn't mind using more then 3 ingredients. I faint at a recipe, with more than 2 or 3. LOL

    You are being wise, the way you choose to handle Tiger's illness. Do what you can, and don't worry, ahead of time.

    Many gentle hugs,
    Luna Crone
