Chicken Stroganoff/paprika over egg noodles and fresh spinach sauteed with garlic and mushrooms, yummy

I don't know yet!  I have decided I am not cooking it and no one else has said anything.  LOL.  We do have some desserts in the house and chocolate hummus if I get desperate :-)

Yes, they are. Damn you for reminding me...as I have cut almost all carbs quite effectively. Torture.

If your on a low carb diet, you need to look into cauliflower recipes. It can be used for anything from mashed "potatoes", rice and even pizza dough. And for a pasta, spaghetti squash is a perfect alternative.

I'll second the mashed cauliflower. I made that not too long ago and enjoyed it more than I expected. It's just as easy as mashed potatoes and takes even less time, since the cauliflower cooks more quickly. (Ans it mashes easier, unless you overcook your potatoes.)

This is my one day of the week where I am not planning to leave the house!  Younger folks are skiing up north and it is quiet!  I stayed home this weekend for the march yesterday and some other stuff.  I have a New England boiled dinner in the crockpot for tonight.  What snacks are people having for the game today?  I bought some crinkle cut butternut squash to bake in the oven like french fries and some yummy little pastry cups with feta cheese and caramelized onions at Trader Joe's.

Decided to stay home since tomorrow is busy.   Dinner is shrimp cocktail, baked haddock and broccoli.  Dessert is...drum roll...Girl Scout cookies!  It is that time of year.

Chicken soup...still using frozen veggies from my garden.  I probably will not plant a garden this summer due to home transitioning...planting and harvesting seasons probably won't be in the same place.  It will be hard for me to not have a garden...I will give myself a generous farmer's market budget to compensate!

I would at least grow a couple cherry tomato plants. Maybe some peppers too. Both do good in containers. I use 5 gallon buckets from the hardware store.

Good advice, gator.  I will likely do a little bit to get my hands in the dirt.

Anyone into juicing? Tonight I had a glass of juiced carrot, apple and ginger with dinner. I'm going to try swiss chard tomorrow, maybe with some melon.

I used to make something called "green drinks" in a blender...all kinds of dark leafy greens and a little pineapple juice mostly I think.  I can't claim they were yummy but definitely healthy.  The carrot, apple, ginger sounds like something I'd really like.  What equipment do you use to do the juicing?

I got an affordable masticating juicer and it works great for what I spent.
