Chicken and Noodles

I was supposed to make a casserole, but it is rainy, cold and crappy out. That and I have celery that needs to be used; for something.Â*Â* Then just because I'm going to be in the kitchen anyway, I'll make some bread.

EDIT: I thought Chicken and Noodles was soup, but after really reading the recipe, it isn't.Â* I'm still making it anyway.

Roast chicken with fennel, aubergine, and carrots all delicious on top of a bunch of buckwheat (that's bulgur in English right? Its funny cos the packaging has every language but English)

I don't feel like cooking tonight, so I'm not going to.

One night last week I cooked up a bunch of chicken breasts, then shredded them with the Kitchen Aid Mixer.Â* All that to say, it's a chicken salad night.

Getting me to eat is a monumental task. This is due in no small part from the metformin's effect of suppression of appetite, especially from the fact when used in my issue, binge-eating, this worked too well.

Sometimes, take out is required or simple to cook meals.

Baked Ziti- I have stuff in the fridge I need to use up before I put in a new grocery order.

Last night I made a fajita-type thing. It smelled good while it was cooking, but the outcome was really gross.Â* Sometimes when a recipe doesn't come out right, I'll try it again but change it up a bit. For this particular recipe, I'm passing on giving it a second chance.Â*

I had danish rye bread with mackerel in tomatosauce (maybe only a scandinavian thing) and with mayo on top.

Open style sandwich or what we would call a "håndmad" (directly translated as hand food). It is a less fancy version of "smørrebrød".

Ah! "Makrell i tomat". I have never eaten that. The look reminds me of some internal organs Do you eat that for dinner? Surely that must be lunch.

I have been eating the same sausages and carbonara the last days. I also eat lasagne. I have to find something else today. I wonder about fish perhaps or just a salad. Something light.

Three Cheese Tortellini with Traditional Ragú Red Sauce

I tend to have trouble feeding myself due to the suppression of my appetite from the metformin, so this means I run out of energy to stand and cook and in short, I find myself relying on my father's cooking and it's not bad, but I may want to talk to Dr. VB.

Loaded Baked Potato

Been a while. Since I had gone without eating for a while about a while back, it was nice to have my comfort food.

It is not exactly pretty no haha. it is mostly for lunch, but we eat ryebread for supper 1-2 times a week. And "Makrell i tomat" is one of my favorite things to eat with it.

^ That combo (mackerel in tomatosauce) is one of the worst things I've ever tasted. There are people who love it (how? ) but for me it's a hard nope. Mackerel on its own is okay in small quantities, and tomato sauce is fine as long as it's cooked right and not too "tomato-y" (the "raw" taste needs to be cooked out, and it must be spiced right), but the boxed combo? NopeNopeNopeNope! I came very close to throwing up... Not a big fan of pink fish either (salmon and trout - yuck!), and no sushi for me (uncooked fish? Yuck!). Mackerel and maybe another similar fish is fine in small quantities, but the taste can be somewhat overpowering so it's not something I eat often. But gimme (cooked) white fish and I'm good (cod, pollock, tusk, maybe a few other types - I'm really not good with fish names in English...). Fish and tomato sauce does not belong together (I've tried it on pizza - nope. I've tried it as a fish stew with white fish - nope. Maybe other people like it, but I don't.

As for "what's for dinner", I'm so tired of that question... I get it every day, and I'm all out of ideas. There are some ingredients I try to avoid for various reasons, which means the grocery shops are about as inspiring as a bag of frozen peas from fifteen years ago (and peas is one of the things I'm trying to avoid)... *sigh*

Today we had chicken (re-heated in the microwave from yesterday - like chewing stale, week-old bread) and veggies (cooked today, and a bit tastier than the ones I made yesterday because I sliced the broccoli and fried the sides. Yesterday I just threw the boquets in the pan with the rest of the veggies, meaning they were heated uneven).

This afternoon was, no joke, one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving aside from making and eating the main feast itself- making stock! For whatever reason, anytime I have a whole bird (anything from a little itty-bitty cornish hen all the way up to a 26 pound turkey) I always want to make stock from the leftover bits. It's just so good, it's like magic! You take all the leftover bits of the bird that no one wants to eat, you add the tops and greens from the vegetables you chopped up the day before, you throw in lots of the random spices that you have WAY too much of because you foolishly said "sure, I'll take all of grandma and grandpa's old spices" when your family was clearing out their apartment a few years ago, and then you cover it with water and boil it for an afternoon and strain it out, and it magically becomes an amazing stock base that's way better than any storebought chicken stock could ever dream of! Like I said, magic!

Spaghetti with marinara sauce.

Wasn't in the mood for something TOO fancy.

Would have been nice to share it with someone.

Outside of my family, I have no one.

Made soup (again). Or rather, I just spiced it. Mom did all the work (well, she wanted soup, not me - it's a lot of work with the meat...)

Mushroom/spinach/ricotta stuffed crepes with a parmesan garlic sauce (an effort at using up leftover mushroom ravioli filling that wound up being much better than the initial dish actually had been).

Life lessons: too much good stuff in any recipe will produce unsatisfactory results. I call this the Burrito effect. Don't put everything under the sun into a burrito.
Also, there's the toxic effect: want the whole thing for yourself? Add anchovies. Anchovies are salty goodness and totally rejected by the unsophisticated

Sims are better than us.

Am a poor student again, so like pasta (fusilli is #1) with the randomly picked jar of sweet and spicy tomato sauce I found at Lidl this morning. Also I dropped like a spoonful of garlic and herb cheese spread into it cos I didn't have enough cash on me to also buy seasoning. So like it could have totally been better but its decent enough to eat without being miserable
