Over the weekend we had

Smoked/grilled boneless pork chops - the ones from Costco that are like 2" thick and grilled/smoked asparagus. I rebaked some leftover mashed potatoes and put cheese on them.

We had enchiladas, rice, beans on Sunday. I made a veggie saute to go with consisting of bell pepper, onion, zucchini, and yellow squash. That was really good. We also had waffles and ice cream for dessert.

I made coconut curry chicken, with yellow curry powder instead of red paste like I normally do. I used an older recipe that calls for sugar, and I forgot how sweet it was, but everyone enjoyed it and there are no leftovers.

What kind of lettuce do you use? I am having a hard time finding butter lettuce, and I had lettuce wraps on the menu this month.

Romaine hearts - butter lettuce is hard to find at my local grocery store. (Romaine is more like a long spoon than a wrap, but the kids eat it. )

I'm super busy today and needed fast, so I threw together a White bean stew in the IP and made some rice. Completely weather INappropriate! But there's plenty of stuff for salads and some leftovers.

We are all scattered tonight, so I made some falafel (from a mix and baked it), hummus, a little chicken and chopped veggies and bought some premade tzatziki so people can just make themselves a bowl of "stuff" when it is time for them to eat.

I made this the other day for dd, recovering from childbirth, because I know soup is easy to freeze and reheat. I think it was 100 degrees that day.

I didn't cook yesterday. We traveled to my niece's graduation and had party food. I might fast today or eat something really small and bland. I feel so sick from the junk food. I just don't tolerate it anymore. Aging is full of surprises.

I wish my family would eat this type of food. I love it!

Tonight I'm trying Cacio e Pepe Panzanella With Corn & Burrata. DS is going to hate it because there's no meat and too many tomatoes but our vegetarian friend is coming to dinner, and it looked so intriguing to me because I've always wanted to try panzanella and never have. I may have to make some meat on the side for him or something .
