    Pan sautéed Brussel Sprouts, garlic, vegan bacon lardons with a splash of white wine, honey & a large dollop of Dijon.

    Served with a grain that was new to me - pearled spelt.

    Saturday dinner appetizer: Slowcooker Split Pea Soup (to go with last of leftover Stroganoff-like slowcooker Creamy Chicken from the other evening). Pretty good. Macros: 213 cal, 16g protein, 29g carb, 4g fat, but a bit of a hit, prob from the ham, of 501mg sodium per serving. Overloaded vs. the recipe with carrots and celery per our preference. Rather than buzzing it with an immersion blender for a thicker result, I left it "natural" this time.

    Shrimp ceviche. The first time I have made that at home - it will not be the last!

    Proof that it is the simple things in life that matter.

    Probably not obvious to folks reviewing my postings since midsummer is that fact that nothing was baked. Outdoor grill and stovetop only (including pressure cooking and slow cooker), as our ancient (30+ yrs) oven gave up the ghost. We got along without it, due to summer, activities and travel, but with the cold season onset, we just got a new oven delivered Friday.

    Sunday evening, first full meal with it to commission the new unit: simple baked chicken with baked sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts and side salad. Really hit the spot.

    MFP computes this plate as 696cal, 63g protein, 20g fat, 63g carb (17g fiber).

    I don't normally cook during the work week because I have the corporate job and hubby is a freelancer. However, I accidentally defrosted chicken thighs on Sunday when we were actually planning to use up leftovers. Dinner was pimped up leftover Thai pomelo salad, slightly disappointing air fryer salt and pepper chicken, rice.

    This is pretty common of how we eat. Made a Copycat recipe of the Carrabba's Sausage and Lentil Soup. If you've ever been to Carrabba's, you know which one I mean.

    Made it with two lbs of Chicken Sweet Italian Sausage (from Sprouts) -- browned and set aside and chopped up when cooled.

    4 TBS EVOO
    Two Large White Sweet Onions
    Six stalks Celery
    Four large carrots
    Four cans of diced tomatoes
    Red Pepper -- chopped
    1 lb Portobellos
    One Lb Frozen Spinach
    Two boxes Organic Chicken Broth (ended up adding a bit of Vegetable Broth too).
    One bunch of fresh garlic
    1 lb of Green Lentils
    Red Pepper flakes
    Oregano
    Basil
    Black Pepper
    Thyme
    Salt to taste

    Pretty simple to make. Just brown the sausage in EVOO, leave the drippings. Add in the onions, celery and carrots and cook for around five minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients except the salt (lentils don't cook well with salt). Cook around 30 minutes on simmer. Add back in your sausage. You can also add frozen spinach right at the end to cool the soup down. Salt to taste when done. Add Parm or Pecorino to garnish.

    This would also be so easy in a Instant Pot but this is a double recipe and wouldn't likely fit. If you use an Instant Pot, half the ingredients.

    Cauliflower Arugula soup and Cheese melt (Havarti and Rye)

    I also made a batch of Arugula pesto (Arugula, garlic, hazelnut, evoo, lemon juice and pink salt) which turned out very good!

    I forgot to put dinner in the crock pot yesterday so instead, for dinner I made a little egg scramble with bacon, onion and peppers. And brioche toast w/ butter.
