    I don't know if this is the right place to post, but I bought myself a Cuisinart indoor grill a year ago. It lets you pick your category (chicken, pork, meat, fish) and it alerts you to the doneness. I use it almost every day. It was a bit pricey, but when I break down the cost per use, it was really cheap. And the non-stick panels go into the dishwasher. It beats getting the grill up all the time.

    I have one too it's awesome

    Amazon lists several Cuisinart indoor grills, can you tell which model you have ? Thanks

    Just visited my mum & made us pan seared rib eye steaks with caramelized mushrooms & a spinach salad with homemade lemon-oil dressing. Simple, but we were both so starving (it was 4pm & my first meal of the day), so we couldn't wait any longer for me to prepare sides or starters.

    In fact, I had a small pkg of Middleswarth's chips to take out the sting while waiting for mushrooms to caramelize. Far too busy day.

    Made a thing with ground meat, vegetables and tomatoes (canned :embarassed:). I like it...

    Could have used more salt and less pepper, but such is life when you eyeball spices.

    Cooking is a learning curve--keep going.

    Taste as you cook. Thats how you build flavour. Dont just dump things in and hope for the best :)

    Lentil Sloppy Joes with pickles and chips. This is the first time I made a veggie version and I think I like it more than the meat version!

    Whole wheat pasta (radiators) w lentils.c9m4lzjbclm8.jpg

    Hi ma'am, this looks delicious and nutritional(carb from wheat and protein from lentils). Would you mind sharing the recipe.
    Thanks,
    P.

    Sure, happy to.

    Lentils
    I used dry (small mountain lentils), and rinsed them, and cooked them in water until tender (I do a double batch and put the extra in the freezer)
    Then in a small pot--EVOO, finely chopped garlic, celery, onion, carrot, and parsley. Simmer this until a little soft.
    In the big pot w lentils and their water, add oil mixture, tomatoes (I am very careful to use plain tomatoes-- you can chop fresh, or use canned or bottled. Roma type tomatoes are best, but use what you've got) black pepper, salt, a laurel leaf, and a piece of hot pepper.
    Simmer all of this on low for at least half an hour. Taste as you go, and add water if it gets too thick, and whatever you need to get it to your taste.
    When putting it on pasta or rice, add fresh basil.

    The pasta I used is a high quality whole wheat by Molisana (an Italian made).

    The last FULL meal I cooked was fettucini alfredo with diced grilled chicken and bacon and shaved Parmesan garnishes, with pan seared zucchini: I had pasta, alfredo sauce, chicken, bacon, and Parmesan. Boyfriend can't have pasta, so he had the chunks of pan-seared zucchini with alfredo sauce, the chicken chunks, and the bacon and Parmesan. Girlfriend had the pasta, topped with the rest of the zucchini, the alfredo sauce, chicken chunks, bacon, and Parmesan, and made embarrassing noises while eating it.

    However, today was prep day, so the house is filled with the smell of seared onions and peppers that are going into a Tex-Mex flavored quichecake tomorrow along with diced ham and some chipotle cheddar shreds.
