    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.

    THIS is exactly what I love. It is all the sweeter for me personally, if it sits under-budget - the total cost vs the recipe vs plate serving.

    Thank you ever so much elsie.

    Much like @elsie6hickman, K-kins, you know how quickly we'd thrown dinner together... It was super duper easy. Cast iron stove top everything inspired by @jasondjulian . Turkey burgers (store bought patties) with mozzarella + seasoning, pan fried swede ( starting to taste like Spud, I promise). Spicy salmon. Everything was ready to eat in 20mins. Cross between store bought and garden salad ingredients a la salad bar prep. Voila!! Dinner!!

    @acpgee Forgive me this infringement, but would you please share your lean meat of choice for your Sunday dinner?

    I made chicken larb, using breasts. My recipe from David Thompson's "thai food" recommends hand mincing the chicken instead of using the food processor. That was the only bit that required any work.

    @jasondjulian The cast iron just makes food taste more delectable than imagined possible I find. I miss cast iron outdoor cooking. Especially like your dinner [email protected] calories.

    Am confident that a good majority of us don't at all mind your stove top, genuinely appreciative. The kitchen is the heart of all homes; A show of love, that (big smile).

    Thanks! And yes, cast iron is the best. Those two pans in my picture are about 100 years old... they're so non-stick they make teflon look like fly paper.

    Hey, at least with a messy stove you know that I'm cooking at home and not eating out too much! lol.

    @k8eekins it wasn't a sheet pan dinner. I roasted the pork and steamed the veggies. veggies were frozen

    last night's dinner was pulled bbq pork sandwiches with sweet carrot puree. My kids LOVED it

    @acpgee Much appreciation and respect for your quality sharings throughout the board, which I've always enjoyed over the years. Larb gai thanks to you is a dish I'm going to try - (SE Asian meat tartare), for I do enjoy ceviche and other meat tartare variations, when I'm inclined.

    @jasondjulian How I envy you, for having use of your heirloom cast iron pans. That ("cooking at home and not eating out too much") I can't argue, for it saves us all so much money. For me personally, having been in the city of SD during that virus and what not outbreak, it seriously jolted me to recognise the need for home prepped/cooked over the alternative, sadly. Self-preservation wins. I still support the surrounding small business eateries (owned by law enforcement/military personnel, some of whom are retirees) which serves as their alternative income streams in the General SD Area, just not as much as I did before December 2017.

    A family roast with steamed vegetables, especially when still frozen at starting time eases the mind, with how they complement each other effortlessly well, thankfully. I've an affinity for sheet pan quick and easy meals.

    @amgreenwell Such a treat of a dinner spread for your precious gems. What I've appreciated and grown to respect over the years, is child nutrition beginning with learnt-behaviour, from the family kitchen to the family table, having privied how parents like you, commit to prioritising quality nourishment for your blessings ... The nurturance of healthy happy and impressionable growing children.

    scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits

    Poulet au vinaigre balsamique gone Keto for dinner. Used boneless/skinless. Browned it in the oven instead of a sturdy pot. Less time consuming, easing the arm grease necessary for the drippings and marrying the meat with the bouquet garni & mirepoix. Swede mash with a combination of cheeses including sharp cheddar ( loving the tang bite), sour cream & crunchy bacon bits. Salad ... EVERYTHING but for the devilled eggs we had forgotten to make. 😆🤣😆

    Last night was grilled sirloin steak with roasted red potatoes and romaine salad with cherry tomatoes and a little grated parmesan.

    Keto dough with onions, tonnes of olives, peppers, zucchini, sun dried tomatoes, sweet and spicy Italian sausage and mozzarella above the sauce and veggies.

    Lunch today:
    Spiralized turnips roasted
    Roasted mushrooms (seasoned with smoked paprika)
    Rotisserie chicken
    1.5 servings of Alfredo sauce

    Mixed together for a hearty but low carb meal bowl. It was fantastic.

    I buy my veggies precut/prespiralized/presliced to cut down on effort. I choose to spend a bit more for convenience

    Dinner was BBQ chicken wings, skillet grilled swede with onions, garlic and seasoning. Salad. All these were later juiced ( for pulp and juice)@ chunkier ingredients. The chicken and swede were turned into a thickish puree of baby food with some of the pulp added. Loathed using up so many dishes to eat from, however on separate purees ramekin servings work, so as to NOT lose flavour integrity. Mandatory soft foods diet, I am however refusing to succumb to what isn't my normal. Chicken breast or thighs would have been far easier to work with tbh.
