    Once you've gone over to the Dark Side of the Force, there's no way back, LOL! I now make about 80% of our annual bread - a bunch of varieties - but all rooted to this no-knead turbo method.

    Monday evening dinner: a creamy tomato chicken-mushroom saute over tri-color couscous with side sauteed asparagus. Took this one straight from youtube with only a couple of improvs: rounded-up Imperial measurements but otherwise similar proportions and quantities (recipe in metric); I tempered the yogurt with some of the hot tomato sauce before adding it into the mix (to prevent the yogurt from "breaking"); and I got rid of some of the chicken/mushroom moisture before final combining so that the end result was a more medium-consistency sauce. Very good, and all in less than an hour from commencing prep. I've landed on this youtube channel a couple of times, and I'm finding some of her recipes interesting to try. For this one, I'd "mod" it next time around by also adding an additional veg of some sort. MFP recipe builder computes this plate (plus a small 2nd helping) at 903 cals, 59g protein, 36g fat, 85g carb. As cooked, this quantity well satisfied 3 adults tonight.

    Tuesday evening dinner: lemon-yogurt marinated baked/broiled chicken. Rounding out a Greek-inspired meal with homemade tzatziki sauce, brown rice and horiatiki salad. Repurposed tortillas stood in for pita. I haven't yet computed my MFP macros on this meal, but expect them to be pretty moderate.

    I would be so happy to be a guest at your dinners. I so mean it.
    But that will have to wait a bit :)

    Sweetie--if I make it through this, you have a standing invitation to swing by Rome and I'll introduce you to the best eating you've ever had! Coming from you that is a great compliment. I know you are a fantastic and creative cook. I'm just a housewife.

    Nahhhhhhh dont think that. You being the house wife are the fantastic and creative cook. You do whatever it takes to please the people you cook for. I just cook for myself.

    And FYI.... because of your posts, I cook more pasta dishes now.

    I cook for 4 Italian men and they are very picky. They criticize now and again, but that keeps me on my toes. Italians are used to eating very well.

    This is the most expensive seafood you can find around here, if you can find it.

    It was on sale and I had to stand in line 45min to enter the grocery store. I could see that they were fresh--small though. I'm simmering the leftover shells and heads right now to make a future risotto. I paid €9.90 a kilo or around $5 a pound. The whole apartment smells like scampi and garlic. :D
