Oh my, that meal last night was AH-mazing! When I return to weight-loss LC-diet portion of my life, I'll substitute cauliflower puree for the polenta. It was SO delicious!

I am moving Pasta Sunday for our meal tonight, so that I can fix something special for ME on Mother's Day! (Pasta is DH's favorite meal, not mine)

Growing up, my mom tried to get us to eat spinach -- you know, PopEye and healthy. But she was NOT a cook -- so the only way she ever served it was canned spinach plopped into a pan and heated. GROSS! And even threats of spankings from Dad couldn't get us to eat it. Of course, Dad couldn't stomach it either, so no actual spankings!
It wasn't until my early-twenties that I was offered fresh spinach (an 80's spinach salad) -- which of course, I LOVED! But I knew nothing about how to prepare fresh spinach at home.... you know, how to remove the dirt and grit.... so, it was a very rare, restaurant-only dish for me to eat. Even then, I only ate it in fresh salads because, in MY life experience, cooked spinach was gross!
In my late 20's, I met my future husband -- who introduced me to frozen spinach. It became a regular part of my diet at last! I introduced my family-of-origin to frozen spinach one big-family-Thanksgiving-gathering (there were....oh, 20 of us) by offering a BIG bowl of my Sicilian spinach dish. Mom warned me it would ALL go to waste as she watched me make it because NO ONE would touch it, never mind EAT spinach! I smiled with great satisfaction when Mom noticed it was the first dish that completely vanished into people's stomachs! She was sputtering, "...but I never even got to TASTE it!"
I STILL have never bought a single can of spinach. I never see a recipe that uses it and I can't even imagine (I just realized I had a big grimace on my face!) how to use it !

oh, memories....
ANYway...

Tonight, we are having ham and bean soup with dandelion greens added.

Pasta Sunday ( Sicilian spinach, and homemade sauce,soft-boiled egg, fresh-grated romano cheese over rigatoni (always!)) had one variation yesterday -- it was served in the early evening instead of very early afternoon. To get us by until then, at noon we had a snack of fresh homemade bread with baked brie covered with maple syrup and praline pecans.

I spent SEVEN hours yesterday doing the grocery-shopping!
Fortunately, I bought a rotisserie chicken for dinner, to which I added some steamed and buttered broccoli, and a dish of (instant) mashed potatoes and leftover homemade gravy.

In my crockpot, I made a small pot of Pork Green Chili -- Isolation Style

Not knowing exactly what I was doing (I did use a recipe for reference) because of an inability to procure certain ingredients, and a lack of time (late start), and a strong desire to do things the easy way, I just dumped what I had into the crockpot, crossed my fingers, and hoped.

The canned chilies? I chopped them up coarsely, but the whole can went in UNDRAINED! The meat did get cut into large bite-size bits, but...no measuring, no browning. Spices? Sure! Dump a pile in my hand and toss in! That small pile of tomatillos that has been on my kitchen counter in a bowl for SIX months? Time to use them up (if any are still good -- YES they are!) I don't have that-- substitute this....

An hour before dinner time, I checked. I had ended up with something akin to a SOUR, tough, coarse pork chili soup. THE (cooking) DOCTOR IS -- I N -- THE HOUSE! Add a little sugar and a little baking soda to counter the sourness, turn up the heat to reach tenderness at this late time, toss in another dose of spices, and add a little cornmeal to thicken it up. Simmer until dinner. Serve with tortillas.

What a MASTERPIECE of deliciousness! And that is an UNDERstatement! emoticon

I will DEFINITELY be doing this again!

well, it turns out that I made HUGE pot of Refrigerator Soup -- and it was quite delicious. We ate less than half of it -- it was VERY full of stuff and not enough broth and the broth didn't have the body that I prefer. SO... we ate it again tonight. I added lots more stock and 2 cups of mashed potatoes (to increase the body), and it was EVEN better!
And the soup pot is still half- full!

Tonight is soup night! I knocked myself out yesterday -- and all we have leftover is a bit of the cauliflower. So I'm taking it easy with a crockpot:

When I was in the hospital I had a sweet potato that was really good. My friend said they probably steamed it. I have done that with mine since and they have turned out good, but microwaving just ruined the one I had last night.
