    My weekend fare consisted of lots of what I consider non food items. That would be veggies low in calories and taste. Hold the shredded cheese, the sauces or gravies that would make them more edible. Thank God for hot sauce.:(

    I had solid food last night for the first time in several days. Barbecue chicken, roasted potato and green beans, yum. Breakfast today is a banana and tea. That's a good point, @Ike Willis hot sauce is usually good for most people, and can add some flavor. Do you mean salsa, or something else? I've seen a lot of recipes recently for different sorts of salsas, some incorporating fruit. I haven't tried them, but they sound interesting, and I'm sure they taste good, too.

    I usually use Louisiana hot sauce. I read the labels on different brands and found many have about the same ingredients. Vinegar, cayenne pepper and salt. I use a lot of it. I'm surprised I ain't smoking.:)

    I had a hamburger and salad. It is hard to beat a good homemade hamburger. I added worchestshire, sauce, garlic, a bit of cheese..and topped it with lettuce, onion and tomato.I had a few beans as well. Of course I had to have some ketchup. The only thing I forgot was a pickle. Cereal for breakfast...can't remember what I had for lunch..hmmm. I guess it wasn't too memorable. I don't think it was much. My roomie is a big proponent of hot sauce.

    Vegetables and fruits are still my buddies through the year 2016! But, I guess most folks in America are getting excited for the coming 4th of July feasts! :p

    I wish I could still eat hot sauce. It's been a few decades for that. I'm glad you can, and that you enjoy it. Even with salsa, the hottest I can have is medium. At least I can still eat bell peppers, though, and I can occasionally have something a little stronger.

    Last night was a toasted sandwich of pickle and pimiento loaf and cheese, it was yummy.

    I was planning on Beef Stroganoff for tonight... have the beef thawed and everything, but it turned into such a hot day that I'm going to keep that for tomorrow and do Subway tonight.... let someone else do the cooking. That's rare around here! :) It'll be a 6" (which actually measures to 5" lately) steak & cheese with light mayo and tomato.

    I will have spaghetti tonight. I have the meat already prepared for the sauce. I am trying to get rid of my jarred pasta sauce because I want to make my own the next time I make spaghetti or something of that ilk. I am hoping it will save some money and be better for me anyway. I do make my own sauce when I make goulash. Lately, I have eschewed Subway, even though there is one close to here...because you can get a much better deal at Sheetz. A basic sub is only two bucks and you can get it on a fresh pretzel roll. When I was at the lake on Sunday, people were discussing the fact that Subway rolls have been found to contain plastic! I am sure it is a miniscule amount..but still???

    Last night, I made a tuna casserole for supper..
    It was delicious and there is leftovers which I don't generally like..
    What I like about those casseroles, is that it is a one dish meal.. Loads of veggies..

    Today it is raining all day and it is on the cooler side, so a casserole would be perfect..

    Also it is our wedding anniversary, so something special would go over pretty well..
    I have a casserole that uses minced turkey with a ton of veggies and every time I make it, my dear Princess loves it...

    It is HOT up here and I don't want to use the stove, so I put on the BBQ some frozen pre-marinated chicken breasts..
    Went to our vegetable garden and picked some baby spinach, radishes and I scraped a carrot and some sliced mushrooms and we had a wonderful fresh salad.. I made my own dressing.....

    An odd thing happened to me today when we went food shopping.. I was looking for B/S chicken thighs that were on special and I found them.. They were 6 to a package and I bought 4 packages..
    Well, when I got home and decided to have some on the BBQ for supper, they were NOT thighs at all.. They were B/S chicken breasts in pieces about the size of a thigh..
    They were only $1.99 a Kg which is unheard of cheap.. That's about .89 cents a pound for breasts ???? c'mon...
    I am going back on Monday for another reason and if they are still there at that price, I will buy everything they have.. I will freeze them 4 to a package and pre dry marinate them first before freezing so when I thaw them to grill, they are already marinated..

    I just had two eggs and two sausage patties which I'm now washing ( pronounced "warshing") down with my second cup of coffee.

    Today is a lazy food day. Lunch was from Whataburger and supper is what ever you can find in the fridge or the cupboard. I think it has something to do with the weather: hot and humid.

    I don't know if it will be for lunch or supper, but sometime today we will be eating fajitas. And since it ia hot and my air conditioner went out last night, we will be drinking lots of cold fluids all day long.

    The other night was a weird supper night...
    First, I asked my dear wife if she would like to eat out for supper and she smiled and said "yes"...
    I didn't say a word so I went ahead and made a BBQ and we ate supper on the table and chairs on our patio instead of eating indoors..
    THAT'S EATING OUT, ISN'T IT ??????? Well, we are NOT eating in !!!!!!!
    That didn't go over too well in the beginning but she then realised that with my weird sense of humour, anything is possible.. We actually enjoyed eating on the patio so much that we both want to do that again, especially for breakfast..
    We had breakfast out on the patio the next day and really enjoyed that as well..

    It was very easy serving as the BBQ is on the patio..
    I had made a cold broccoli salad which we had as the veggie.. What I did was just as we were to start eating, I went to our veggie garden and picked 2 large leaves of our lettuce, rinsed them under the garden hose, and put the broccoli salad on the lettuce leaf.. Different.. Fresh lettuce from the garden doesn't taste like store bought..

    The good thing was she was already dressed to go out and didn't have to change..

    3 scrambled eggs for me..
    Pot of Folgers
