Daaaannnngggg its cold. Minus 4 last night, still minus 1 at this writing. Nothing compared to other parts of the country, but its all in what you are used to, I suppose. I vote for soup-ish and oven baked things, when we’re not scoring the yums at our fave local fish fry.
I know, I could just make stuff up, and that would be a nice excuse to snoop around the Internet for cool recipes on your behalf…but decided not to take a more daily journal than journalistic approach to “The Vampire Diet”. This is what we really eat, for better or for worse. I think leading by example is one of the most effective forms of leadership, and this gives me a chance to walk my talk and fall my fall when that happens too. If you see lots of repeats, its only because the hubster and youngling actually like, eat and request those particular dishes. I consider it high praise when a finicky youngling asks for something that actually has veggies in it.
The basic rule of thumb…or rule of fang if you rather…is to eat as whole and unprocessed as possible, day by day, meal by meal…but without sacrificing joi de vie, variety and simple pleasure. And believe me, fish made by local blue haired nonna grannies is very much a pleasure.
Monday – Breakfast for dinner: ham, egg and cheese biscuits (with side of fruit)…am in total infatuation with the “Cheddar Bay Biscuits” from Damndelicious.
Tuesday – Happy Mardi Gras! Jamba-like-a with beignets for dessert
Wednesday – local fish fry
Friday – yay! more fish! I like fish. And shrimp. And the seafood bisque. Oh, the seafood bisque…
