I made my dad’s Chop Suey today. It will last 3 or 4 meals. Yesterday my husband revved up the grill for ribeyes and asparagus. I enjoy asparagus soup and roasted asparagus, but disliked it grilled. It tasted like cooked spinach to me.2+May 15, 2019 at 5:39 pm #16083

For Wednesday’s dinner, I roasted a chicken. I had forgotten just how much it smokes up the house when the oven door is opened and the chicken removed. (I suspect this is one reason–the other being cleaning the oven–that so many of us just buy rotisserie chickens.) I’m glad that there is a vent fan in our apartment kitchen. We had noodles made with some powdered mushrooms. I made a new vegetable dish, working off a recipe in a recent special magazine issue, Heart Smart Recipes. I put a 15×10 sheet pan into a 450F oven to heat up for about 5 minutes. I had cut asparagus into 1-inch pieces, sliced some white mushrooms, minced 4 cloves of garlic, then mixed in a package of cherry tomatoes. I tossed these with some olive oil. I pulled out the pan, put a sheet of parchment (oven safe to 450F) on the pan, put on the vegetable mixture, and roasted for 18 minutes. When I took them out, I drizzled a bit of olive oil on them, then sprinkled with Penzey’s Sunny Paris and stirred. My husband, who is not a big asparagus fan, really liked it prepared this way. Note: the original recipe did not use parchment paper, but I do my own clean-up, so I used it and lowered the temperature from 475F.
I also cooked a bag of garbanzo beans that I soaked for nearly a day. Some will be frozen, and some will be used in recipes to be noted here.

I’m planning to make some buns for burgers tomorrow, I don’t know if I’ll make them tonight or in the morning, it’s supposed to be in the 90’s here tomorrow. I gave up and turned on the A/C last night, it was in the mid-80’s in the bedroom.1+May 16, 2019 at 4:37 pm #16117

My husband hates it when I have a jigsaw puzzle going!! He knows there just might not be any dinner! Tell you husband that burned is better than none; although I guess he might disagree.2+
