Tonight we are having Chinese

I'm pregnant and craving lo-mein like it's no ones buisness. The greasy kind from our local Chinese place, with a big glass of water yum yum yum.

Buttermilk oven-baked chicken. I still have to figure out a veg. - we have nothing fresh in the house, but I don't feel like going out to the shops today. So probably some frozen corn - maybe with some chopped bell peppers and cilantro for a bit of Mexican flavour.

We have our "dinners" at noon, so already had it.

Breaded and fried (by me) cod fillets with tartar sauce and lemon
Roasted tri-color potatoes with fermented ketchup
Steamed buttered broccoli

Supper's usually homemade soup, but I have none made and no broth, so I have no idea what supper will be, maybe "snacks"

Enjoy the Chinese! I never liked it, but when I was pregnant I had DH bring home Wendy's burgers or Hot Wings more than once--and we're serious nutrition (local, pastured, organic, homemade) people around here.

I am making a big pot of split pea soup and corn bread (it's snowing here and freezing!).

chinese sounds good, though. We don't have anywhere that delivers, and we don't go pick it up very often.

LOL - when I was pregnant, I had terrible morning sickness. The one thing that worked for me was won ton soup. The broth would settle my stomach a little, and if I was actually hungry (rare), the dumplings were just the right thing - a bit of protein, but easy to eat. My local Chinese restaurant was a life saver!

We're having visitors over so DH is making home-made spaghetti sauce (his italian grandma's recipe, it's his special dish) and we'll probably have a fresh baguette alongside with a green salad.

Put a fried egg on top of the latkes and that's my favorite breakfast--about twice a week!

It was supposed to be sweet potato, until I realized the tri-color potatoes were about to sprout!

We just finished buffalo steak, roasted potatoes and southwestern coleslaw (DD calls it rainbow coleslaw). Oranges for dessert. It was good!

Best laid plans....

After I had the chicken in the oven, my DS's girlfriend came over - a vegetarian. If he told me she was coming for dinner, then I forgot completely.

So with hardly any vegetables in the house, I had to figure something out fast. I made a pot of lemon garlic lentil soup - which took a little time to simmer. Dinner was a little later than I planned, and my chicken was a little dry.

Ah well, serves me right for being too lazy to grocery shop.
