Yes, Elton John is still on my brain. +++++++++++++++++++++++++ Thank you so much for all the responses to my survey. And if you haven't answered - please do! Even if you have not received anything, I'd like to know. I've also found a great resource to combat the one email sample that was posted which... Continue Reading →
Next to last July dream dinner
Hawaiian Chicken. This dish was all inclusive - I added nothing. Well, OK, I felt like having edamame too 🙂 The sauce included black beans, pineapple, green onions, red peppers and garlic in a chicken broth base. Quite good. I took the plunge and ordered up a bunch of food from the August menu. Unfortuantely... Continue Reading →
Dream Dinner #..whatever! – Steak Gorgonzola
The steaks marianating. This dish was on the "express aisle" for the month of July which meant that everything was pre-mixed for me so I have no idea what is in this! It looks oil based though - kind of like an italian salad dressing. After 10 minutes under the broiler - with gorgonzola butter... Continue Reading →
Posting from the air!
Ok, not really. I just set this to post when my plane takes off 🙂 Grilled Salmon - ok, broiled in my version. Some garlic dill butter with capers sprinkled on top at the very end. So this one took me all of 10 minutes. I added some peas and a crusty roll on which... Continue Reading →
Ack! I’m supposed to post!
Being in last day before travel mode, I did not prepare a post for today. I should have taken pictures and written about last night's dinner. No pictures, but it was Bahama Burgers. The ground beef and seasonings were provided - I had to mix them together and form 3 burger patties. Buns and pineapple... Continue Reading →
Dream Dinner #4 + This Week in Politics
Summertime Pasta. Chicken, penne, capers, onions and a very light sauce that was chicken broth based with lemon zest and some other seasons that I just don't remember! But, it was indeed a very light summery flovred pasta which I paired with some peas and carrots. I got 6 servings of this one so I'll... Continue Reading →
Dream Dinner #3
Southwest steaks. What I prepared there was the spice mixture that I rubbed on the steaks before cooking them. The long grain rice package was part of a promotional give away from one of their food suppliers that was given to me as I left. So all I had to add was the salad with... Continue Reading →
Dream Dinner #2
As you can tell by the bites, I almost forgot to take a picture of this one!! Pulled pork sandwiches. The meat, sauce and bread provided by DD. Corn on the cob on sale at Vons. The suggested side dish was cole slaw, and I suppose a green salad would have been healthier, but the... Continue Reading →
There is my pile 'o dinners for the month. 9 different dishes with 3-6 servings of each. It was fun last night! I arrived at Dream Dinners right at 7:00. It was a pretty small place so I can see why they only allow 12 at a time in there. You pick up your pre-ordered... Continue Reading →
