    We are having fried chicken with mushroom and onion gravy, green salad, and butternut squash.
    I am having cranberries along with mine because I love cranberries .

    We're having chili and beans with French fries. Good comfort food in the cold weather.

    It snowed here and I made soup. I'm also trying to eat less carbs because my metabolism doesn't burn calories like it used to ;)

    Because of the very cold weather here this week, we've been scrounging thru our frig, so we wouldn't have to go out.

    However, tonight will be a Mexican Restaurant dinner with a good, no GREAT, margarita. Our favorite waitress, from another Mexican restaurant we use to go to, who now works at this restaurant, is working tonight. She is from Columbia and speaks excellent English. She refers to us as her second parents and we refer to her as our daughter. First thing she does when she see us.........gives us both a wonderful hug. She is so good at waitressing, if I owned a Mexican restaurant, I'd hire her instantly and pay her $60k a year, plus her tips. Would make her the Head Waitress!

    Encores is my husband's name for leftovers. He says if something is good the first time, the encore is just as good or better. I married a good man! :)

    We are trying to have more veggies and healthier meals this year. I made cabbage, carrots, onions and potatoes with a can of corned beef for dinner, and it was pretty good !
    For dessert, I made a “fiberlicious” spice cake with carrots and apples as well as the flax and chia seeds, and other fiber rich foods.

    Ive been watching what I eat and got on the scale this morning and lost 2 lbs...yay. :)

    And since this isn't a diet thread, I'll also add that I had tuna salad for dinner last night.

    Chicken baked in the Ninja with sweet potatoes for us. And the leftovers can be soup like we did before. It is not so cold here anymore, but poured rain all day, so hot food for dinner will be good !

    Tonight, burgers, perhaps on the grill if I get ambitious enough. Weather will be ok for the grill and grill burgers has a much better taste than frying them in a skillet. Along with the burgers, homemade French Fries. Have already got the deep fryer out and potatoes ready to go thru the French Fry cutter. And, add a Bud Light and the movie, Beverly Hills Cop to that........good evening.

    I found this recipe for chili seasoning mix and made a batch. The only difference I made was I used Tabasco powder instead of Cayenne and use 1/2 teaspoon instead of 1/4.

    https://www.mybakingaddiction.com/homemade-chili-and-taco-seasoning/

    Yesterday I made chili with it and it was great, much better than the packaged mixes at the store.

    I used two tablespoons per pound of meat. It was quite hot....we like it that way.

    Yesterday we made our monthly trip to Sam’s Club, and since I had a free birthday dinner at Golden Corral, we went there after Sam’s and enjoyed their wonderful food. Next month is Bobby’s birthday, so we can do the same thing again, and that will be our GC dining for the year, most likely.
    Since we had our main meal at Golden Corral, we just snacked in the evening . Bobby had the rest of the chicken pot pie, and his peanut butter sandwich before bedtime, and I had a bowl of oatmeal with half an apple and cinnamon.

    Last night I had a very simple dinner. I chopped up skinless chicken thighs and fried them off in the just a spoonful of oil... and just had those nuggets with a bowl of spaghetti in tomato sauce.

    I'm trying to lose weight...so today thus far I've just had porridge oats and skimmed milk with a small chopped banana
