Got sick on the soup. Maybe too much?

I had a cheeseburger earlier on toast. Tonight it's just cocoa, I think. Hope that is all I will need for the night.

It's way too cold here too and soup sounds good.

I fixed the chicken as chicken masala and cut some up and put in a container to add salad to for tomorrow. I'll have something to eat early before we go. My friend will get hungry around 5:00 probably, so will have the salad then. I got out a container to put dressing in and will have a Jello on the side, probably.

For tonight I had some of the chicken and a baked potato.

I have never had an omelet. I wish I could eat once and be full all day.

We are having taco salad again.

I'm not sure for tonight, but this morning I am going to have an omelet. Got some ham yesterday and had cheese and a few eggs still and some salsa. That should keep me full for the entire day.

Tonight I will be fixing some chicken so that I have some to take to the Stock Show tomorrow. I can't afford to buy from there. They are really expensive. I am trying to figure out how I want to fix it and how to fit what I take in the cooler bag. It is a free day there. I am wondering how to take my water, though. That bottle gets heavy.

I finally fixed the turkey carcass soup -- only I did something different. I wanted to use up leftovers (not different) but this led to a decision to use only red, orange, yellow, and white things (and that's definitely different!). So to the turkey stock, I added shredded turkey and cauliflower chunks (white), shredded spaghetti squash and yellow bell peppers (yellow), orange bell peppers and thin sliced carrots and a can of condensed Campbell's Golden Mushroom Soup (light orange), cubed sweet potatoes (dark orange), and half a can of Rotel tomatoes and sliced red onions and red bell peppers and some mashed red beans (red). The final touch was a drizzle of heavy cream swirled on top of each serving bowl. The family raved! It was beautiful, too!
I served it with a side of steamed and buttered purple cabbage. Tomorrow, we'll get plenty of green veggies like normal, but today I indulged my creativity!

The guests finally left. Whew!
I had lots of small amounts of leftovers in the fridge. Lots and LOTS!

-White rice, Mexican rice, and brown rice combined to make "stir-fried rice." I had to add some corn to it because there wasn't quite enough rice.
-Bits of chicken, beef steak, and pork were cut up to make "diced meat."
-Leftover duck orange sauce (now how long had that been in there?), tiny half-used leftover packages of oriental-flavor salad dressing, and the last dregs of a bottle of Mongolian sauce were stirred together for a "sauce".
-A quick glance into the veggie bin of the fridge revealed some very tired unappetizing-looking green and orange things.... they got peeled and chopped also.

A delicious stir-fried oriental DINNER was born, served with a side of fresh greens salad! There were no leftovers of this meal! And nothing falls out of the fridge when you open the door! I consider this to be a GREAT SUCCESS!!! worth lots of exclamation points!!!!!

Had a small cheese omelet for breakfast this morning with tea. Don't know how long that will last me, but I guess I might be able to eat some supper later.

I had trouble making omelets or eggs with the pan I had since they would spread out so much. I found a little orange pan about 6 1/2 inches with a lid at either Walmart or Kings (seen them both places, but without lid now) and it is just perfect.

For lunch I had leftover orange chicken (a small amount of rice included) and some jello. I was going to have some leftover roast, but I don't think I can even eat one slice of it. I need to just freeze it since I never seem to be hungry enough to eat it.

Totally agree. Hubby and I came to the same conclusion and went out to eat. Back to leftovers tomorrow.

No matter how much leftovers one has, no matter how creative you get wtih them,you need a break from them. Yesterday, we ate out at a Mexican restaurant.
Tonight, I am fixing more leftovers. We still have sweet potato casserole and turkey and green beans... I'm thinking it is time to turn the sweet potato casserole into fried patties, and cube the turkey and serve it over noodles -- Stroganoff style! And chop up and stir-fry the green beans with lots of onion.

The closest Boston Market here is 70 miles so I have seldom eaten there.

Sounds like a good Christmas dinner.

I wasn't too good about things today. I got hungry while out getting things for Orzo and stopped at Boston Market. I had Honey Balsamic Chicken, Sweet Potato Casserole, and apples. I didn't eat all of it. Got too full.

I fixed a very traditional Xmas dinnner: Deep-fried turkey, sweet potato casserole, sausage and rice dressing, and cranberry sauce. Additionally, I made cranberry relish, Aunt Jenrose's Green Beans (rather plain green beans dressed with a creamy spicy mayo) rather than green bean casserole, Koshie's Chinese Duck-Fat Sauteed Broccoli), turkey gravy, and a bunch of desserts to cater to all tastes and dietary needs.
And now, we are eating leftovers. Except for the broccoli. I made TWICE what I thought the fifteen of us would eat, but it was ALL eaten! I'm happy!

I love fajitas and strawberry shortcake. Good job on portioning out the candy.

We had fajitas for Christmas Eve at my friend's and strawberry shortcake for dessert. I'm not one who likes sweet peppers, so had the chicken and onion mix with some sour cream and salsa on it.

I am thinking I will have some of my roast tonight. Didn't have the gas to go to the other friend's today, so will be eating alone and am just watching TV for the day and trying to stay away from the candy I was given for Christmas (I did have a little, but not eating a bunch at once). I am not sure what I will have with the roast.

Everyone's meals sound good. I like less fishy tasting fish too. I had fish, shrimp, crab, and slaw.

Oh, those scallops sound good.

I don't like the fish that most people eat most. It is just too strong fishy (like salmon or lately even tuna). I like the mild fish like flounder, sole, catfish, and the shellfish other than oysters. I never tasted one of those, they just give me the willies.

I fixed some turkey for tonight. That will be good for a few days. I don't know that I will have anything with that. I had a few crackers and cheese spread this morning and ended up with a stomach ache so won't eat much.

oh.... lol, typically, I just fill my omelet with some cheese and chopped up dinner leftovers.
Saturdays are reserved for strawberry omelets. And I know some people really don't like their omelet to get brown on the bottom, but that is something that doesn't bother me at all. I just want tasty results and I want them fast in the mornings! The cast iron (or thick walled aluminum) pans retain heat so they will carry an omelet and gently cook it (assuming you didn't over-heat the pan and you learn that by trial and experience) AND can go in the broiler to finish the cooking. I find that easier than standing and fussing over it!

OMG, stuffed flounder! With CRAB! So yummy! Growing up, I thought I hated fish -- especially mackerel and flounder! It turns out that I just hated my mother's total inability to cook fish -- which we had frequently since we lived on the seacoast and Dad loved to go fishing. Mom would cook that fish in the oven or under the broiler in an aluminum "boat" for 30-45 minutes until it was thoroughly dried out. And then she'd douse it with butter and lemon -- which, dried out as it was, didn't really help. Since I "hated" flounder, I never ordered it in a restaurant! Imagine my surprise as a grow-up....!

Tonight, I am fixing Creamy Scallops, buttered broccoli, and Ginger Lemon Rice.

Koshie, that omelet sounds pretty good. I've never had one made like that or with all that you used. My little pan is one of the newer type non-stick, so I don't even need to spray it and everything just slides out. Maybe I can get a small cast iron somewhere to try like you described.

Tonight I am having stuffed flounder, stuffed with crab.

I'm very picky. I don't like egg yolks or soft cooked eggs. Don't like sour cream, don't like canned soup. I have a substantial list of foods I don't like. Your meal sounded good. We had chicken breast, peas and carrots.

Never had an omelet!!!? Morticia!!!!! Why ....after soft-boiled, and custards, it is the best way to have an egg! Assuming one of those small skillets is cast iron, heat it up. Melt a bit of fat in it. Lightly scramble an egg with a splash of milk, cream, or water (about 1-3 teaspoons) and pour it into the skillet. Make it easy on yourself and place the hot skillet under the boiler for a minute, not TOO close -- until egg is slightly cooked on top. Add any toppings of choice. For instance: ham and cheese, chopped veggies with a dollop of cream of mushroom soup concentrate (canned soup), a smear of sour cream topped with fresh strawberry slices and dusting of sweetener or a bit of jam (my personal favorite)...
Then immediately fold omelet in half and continue cooking another minute -- until egg is cooked but still got some creamy soft parts. Slide it out onto a plate and eat immediately!
(yes, of course you can cook it only on the stovetop -- you just have to cook the bottom over low heat until only the top layer remains uncooked, then fill it, fold it in half, and let it cook another minute before eating).

NEVER cook an omelet until the egg is fully cooked!

I tried for pork chops tonight, but didn't have any luck with them. Can't even cut them with a knife, so too tough to eat. So for supper had hash browns and applesauce since there isn't anything thawed to have otherwise.

For lunch I had a small ham and cheese omelet. I found a 6" or 6 1/2" skillet with a lid that is just the right size for me to make a small omelet since I only usually eat 1 egg.

It was so easy and it turned out so well! I had not tried this varity before... it turns out that these mini white pumpkins (about softball size) also had white flesh. And it also turns out that mashed potatoes nicely complimented the pumpkin flesh texture. AND it turns out that they tasted sorta like mildly-sweet sweet potatoes. I'll being doing this again next year! (pumpkin season being over and all....)

Chicken soup tonight! It's time to use up leftovers!

I have some pork chops to fix, but I had something mid to late afternoon and don't feel like trying to cook it tonight, so will fix it for tomorrow. If I eat tonight I will just have some soup.

Your dinners sound good. I hope I can get mine to cook right.

I am going to try cooking my chicken wings tonight. They might have been out too long, though, since I got them out before ending up at the hospital Tuesday. I might have taken them out of the freezer that morning, but I don't remember. Otherwise it is soup with maybe adding some ham in it.
