This is the recipe I based it on but I didn't have all of the ingredients and subbed a ton.



I didn't have red onion and subbed shallots.
I didn't have roma tomatoes and used one can of petite diced tomatoes.

I subbed gf spaghetti for regular.
I don't use wine so used a little bit of red wine vinegar and pasta water.
I didn't have fresh basil and used dried.
And since I was using leftover bacon, I didn't have any bacon fat and used all olive oil.

And I used a lot more cheese. 1/4 cup of cheese. C'mon.



So basically I didn't really make the recipe at all.

baked chicken quarters. Roasted veggies (carrots, broccoli, asparagus, onion, brussel sprouts) and french fries in the air fryer.

Ground beef was on sale so I need to think of some good meal ideas from that for the next few days. i have my regular go tos but man I need to be more creative and expand our dinner horizons. So I'm planning to puruse all the meal threads for ideas.

Creamy corn and tomato shrimp companella (pasta- this shape is new to me)

Meal kit meal.

Hello Chef gave me a total refund for these meals that I accidentally signed up for so I'm not feeling as hostile about them

Tonight is broccoli cheddar soup, dinner rolls and mixed green salad. I had to leave, so I left my 14yo son in charge of finishing the proofing of the rolls and baking them.
We will see how they came out. The recipe usually makes 20, but the pan I picked was too small and I was in a rush, so I only made 15, so they will be large.

Polenta tart with asiago spinach (well, it didn't really turn out like a tart), asparagus from the garden, and fruit salad.

Well, I just got home. They ate the ones around the outside of the pan, but the ones in the middle were doughy.

It's a good learning experience! Bread is always a little tricky.

14yo ds made our dinner tonight. He did a great job!

Yep, I made it! The fam loves torching them. We use a plumbing torch from Home Depot. You can fill a shot glass with alcohol, put it in the top of the meringue after covering the cake and torch that for a volcano effect. Sprinkling cinnamon over the top gives you sparks.

You should try it! It's really not as hard as it sounds, just time-consuming. You can spread it out - bake the cake one day, form the ice cream the next, make the meringue last. If you are at all skeeved out by the possibility of raw eggs in the meringue, you can make a Swiss Meringue (cook the egg whites and sugar over a water bath to 140 degrees, then beat in a stand mixer). Most recipes I've seen call for Italian meringue (cooking the sugar syrup and adding that to beaten egg whites.) But I screw those up as often as not. It's fun to pick different flavor combinations (this year it was chocolate-cinnamon cake, coffee ice cream, and chocolate meringue) and different shapes for the finished cake (wide shallow bowl vs tall bowl vs log, for instance).


Dinner tonight, by contrast, was a little pedestrian - pan-fried lemon pork chops, roasted cabbage wedges, and glazed carrots. I felt compelled to make a cherry crisp after dinner, but the kids were already in bed and didn't get any.

Made this last night. Indian Ground Beef Coconut Curry. Did a few subs (used cauliflower instead of potato, used bone broth instead of water and used a whole jar instead of a tiny amount because my kids love lots of gravy). It was delicious. I'll definitely make it again.
