    For dinner I just made some tuna salad. Will eat it later.

    Today looks like a fish day for me and it's not even Friday:)

    What's for supper? I wish I knew. Had a smoothie last night. Don't know what's on tap tonight if anything; maybe left overs.

    Only way I wouldn't have A/C is if my power went out and if that happened I couldn't use a fan...unless I found a big one that was battery operated.

    So y'all know while my wife is away, I ain't starvin'! Spotted a nice large beef chuck roast at Smith's bargain bin, a bit discolored, marked down from $12.92 to $9.69, wt. 2.3 lbs. Bought it, as I've been hankering for a steak for months now, cannot afford a restaurant steak, but, so, while the cat's away.....:rolleyes:

    It had no fat to cut away, I considered micro-convectioning it, but thinking of (and drooling) those old times before adulthood when my Mother cooked a big hunk of meat naturally, gravy & potatoes.......I started yearning for old-fashioned. Got it started in my wife's 12-inch skillet (to give idea of it's size), couple tablespooons canola oil, browned both sides, then it started to look GOOD! Cut up a whole red onion into the mix:

    [​IMG]


    But I'm supposed to also be eating veggies, so, in went a zuchinni:

    [​IMG]


    I had before starting stabbed the hunk many times with a fork, from both sides, then coated each side with a generous amount of Bromelain, a natural enzyme used in meat tenderizers and arthritic joint formulations (!?)
    A sprinkling of No Salt and pepper, finalized with a bit of garlic powder. Hacked off a corner, perfectly cooked through (yum!), so added a tablespoon of cornstarch to 1/4 cup water, stirred in with meat set aside. Natural gravy from water added and meat juices, just as in days of yore!

    [​IMG]

    My dinner plate, and the leftovers, I apportioned about 1/3 of the entire amount for my meal, perhaps 10 ounces (before cooking) of meat, surely a day's minimum protein requirement+, and find after eating it my gluttonous ways are causing my mouth to water even with a full-belly! This beef, lacking the "marbelling" (read that, fat) deemed by so many as needed for tenderness, was as tender as any high-grade prime rib I have had. Was it the Bromelain? Was he hurt, I'll never know..... (Leader of the Pack). Digressing, drunk from protein! Using stuff like Bromelain is like taking cold medication.....the cold goes away, was it responsible? We never really know!
    [​IMG]

    What I DO know is that those tiny guys imprisoned for perhaps thousands of years in flasks designed to contain them and their gluttonous ways, seek meat immediately upon being released!

    A cup of mixed vegetables, a toasted English muffin topped with melted cheese, washed down with several glasses of unsweetened iced tea.

    One day this week, I had three Oscar Meyer all beef hot dogs for dinner---plain, just a slice of bread wrapped around a microwaved hot dog. 600 calories. I can't leave 'em alone when I buy them, so I try not to buy them.
    They are just too quick and easy. [​IMG]

    These days we are eating mostly out of the garden, so we had fresh tomatoes, zucchini, peas, cucumbers, and part of a grilled pork steak. We eat some of what we get out of the garden every day, and preserve the rest...for the upcoming winter season.

    Not that I've had Oscar Meyer hot dogs ever in my life, but I know what you mean about buying junk food... when you get the urge to have it, you have to buy it and eat it ... and then never go near it in the store again for years, until the next time .... :D

    During the past several years, this traditional meat-eater has kind of thrown in the towel, accepting veggies as desirable, so incorporate them with my meat or other protein source. During that time, my Cholesterol has come down to acceptable, sometimes below 200, mostly 200-210, no meds taken. Triglycerides down in the basement.

    A cup of chili and a toasted English muffin with a smear of SF Smucker's orange marmalade washed down with a glass of iced tea.

    This chili was a first for me and was very good for a meal from a can. It definitely earned a place on the emergency shelf!

    Please explain "salt beef": I eat "salty beef", to be sure, is salt beef a certain kind of preparation?

    Salt beef is beef cured in Brine then boiled, and cut into slices ..usually thick but I like mine thin.

    The Uk salt beef is not to be confused with UK corned beef which is different again to American corned beef

    Yesterday I found some amazingly Washington Sweet Cherries (looks like Bing cherries on steroids) for $1.99 a pound, so I got three pounds (one for eating, the other two for a pie). Last cherry pie I made some weeks ago was the first one that ever turned out perfect, so I'm hankering to see if that was a fluke. Today I'm having spaghetti (and my sauce I keep on hand) for a quickie supper, so I can devote full effort on the pie. Spaghetti is like Chinese food, I'll likely be starving before bed, so I figure a couple cheese sandwiches later on.

    Tonight was a cheeseburger made with a MorningStar Farms Grillers Prime patty topped with reduced fat American cheese on a toasted lite English muffin and a big fat Claussen dill pickle.

    At least the pickle was the real deal, LOL!!!
