Last night I made some fried rice. I used a pack of frozen veggies that SAID it had green beans, broccoli, mushrooms and onions in it. It was mostly green beans with 5 mushrooms (yes I counted them), a lot of broccoli stalks (I picked those out), and just the right amount of onions. I did add some yellow bell pepper to the mix. I thought it needed a little more color. I had a Boca burger to go with it. Oh, for some reason I decided to squeeze some lemon juice on the rice before I ate it, and to my amazement....it was great.
Sunday night I made Falafel,which I hadn't had in a very long time. I had some tater babies to go along with it. I made some dipping sauce for the Falafel and fries, which was the perfect sauce. The sauce was vegenaise and Country Bob's mixed together. Talk about something good....I'm hooked on it now! I didn't measure it, but guessing I would say I used 3/4 cup vegenaise and 1/4 cup Country Bob's.
Friday was my mothers birthday, so we took her out to eat. Her favorite place is Dixie Castle which is nothing but a steak house. I ordered a salad and a baked potato with a side of mushrooms. That's all there was on the menu for me to order. It's a very small place with a very small menu. I used to love to go there back in my omnivore days. Anyway, my salad reminded me of Michelle's over at DirtyDuck. It consisted of shredded iceberg lettuce, 2 slices of cucumber, one slice of tomato, and a slice of onion that I didn't eat.
Here's my potato and shrooms. Oh yeah, I forgot it came with a piece of buttered Texas toast that I passed off to my sister. I ended up putting some of the shrooms on my potato, which turned out to be pretty tasty! The main thing here is that my mom totally enjoyed her birthday dinner! :o) My mom turned 82.....
I don't know why the picture of the potato and shrooms posted like it did. It's rotated the correct way in my pictures, but when I uploaded it to blogger it turned....oh well, at least you get the idea of what it looked like.
I had also taken a picture of my Mexican food from Casa Marina, but it didn't turn out so hot. I opted to leave that off . This weeks going to be a crazy one, but hopefully by the end of the week I will have actually cooked something new. :o) I hope every one is having a great day!
