My hat's off to you for making cheesecake at home, I've never had good luck with that. Can I come to your house for my birthday?!?

Absolutely! I do have to say though, this is my first time making this cheesecake and I haven't tried it so it very well could be nasty. It smelled amazing though, nasty food surely couldn't smell that good!

** subbing for ideas **


so far April has been PB Sandwiches, and Quesadillas with spring-greens salad. :

(In my defense I've been very very sick.)

But some different food might be nice.

Last night I made a barbecued chicken with Great Northern beans in the crockpot, and it was soooo good! The barbecue sauce I had was pretty spicy, so the girls didn't really eat much.

Tonight we're having lasagna or lasagna roll-ups; I can't decide. We'll have salad, cauliflower, and garlic bread with it.

On Monday we had beef curry from our freezer stash with rice.
Tuesday was LLL and DH was out, so the girls and I just had bits and pieces from the fridge (some chicken, pasta, peas, fruit etc)
Tonight is going to be Tuna melt sandwiches on home-made bread, served with a fresh cucumber relish.

My first time making stuffed cabbage leaves tonight.

It's basically what I had left over- that's why the made the dish to begin with right?

Cooked rice, 2 eggs (I made a lot), ground beef, a couple carrots, celery stalks, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, and a dash of cinnamon.

Sauce was just diced toms and tom sauce. I would have liked a dash of dry red wine though, next time. There was a bit of leftover meat mix so I cooked it and added some tom sauce, :, they are gonna be good!

First I sauteed some onion, ginger and garlic in a combo of EVOO and butter (would use ghee if I had it). Then I added cumin, chili powder, turmeric, some ground coriander, and a hefty dose of curry powder. My curry powder was "hot" but if not, i would have put in some chopped hot peppers or cayenne. Then I threw in the peeled, diced potatoes, the chickpeas (canned), a can of coconut milk, a can of diced tomatoes with the juice, and let that all simmer together for, I dunno? 20-30 minutes? until the potatoes were tender. You may need to add some water. I cooked it covered for a while and then took the lid off when the potatoes were done to let the whole mess thicken a bit. Then I added the spinach (frozen, but chopped fresh would work of course) and let it simmer for a few more minutes. Taste and adjust the seasonings. I served this in bowls, like a stew, with some yogurt drizzled on it and it was My DP and my 26-month DD and I all gobbled it up. My 4yo DS (aka The New York Times Restaurant critic ) did not, but that's another thread.

HTH!

we made this for dinner tonight, and it was awesome! dh and i loved it. thanks so much

Oh, right on! I'm glad to hear it. We are big curry fans around here.
