It's super easy to make and delicious even if you don't like sauerkraut. Here's the recipe. https://eatathomecooks.com/lemon-chicken-baked-on-a-bed-of-sauerkraut-a-slow-cooker-recipe/ I added a little extra (double) rosemary and red pepper, and I used pepper flakes, not ground because that's what I have. Everyone liked it. It'll probably go into our regular rotation.

I tried your saurkraut and chicken plate last night.

l put chicken cubes on a 'bed' of saurkraut and held it together on the sides with potatoes and the skillet. l don't have lemon juice, or lime juice, so l squeezed a black olive, but not enough,  so l used the pickle juice from a jar. Baked 20minutes @ 400 .

l was OK.

Thanx.

Drank:

A cup - no, two - of milk tea flavoured with cardamom and a hint of ginger and saffron, and slowly cooked to perfection in a large cauldron.

I salute my people who took a quintessentially English (and usually tasteless) product and turned it into a delicious desi hot drink.

The kids said the peas were big. Are they GMOs?

The bag didn't say, but they looked like the normal peas we always get around here. Maybe I zoomed the picture in too close.

I made a pot of beef stew. It was good, satisfying, though unremarkable. Could've used more carrots, in my opinion, but nobody complained.

Ate: about 3 hours ago I had coffee with milk, but I got sidetracked and forgot to eat any breakfast.

So now, eating: yogurt mixed with homemade blueberry syrup, a cup of lavender tea.

Will eat: I've opened a can of worms with my sauerkraut chicken. We've been married for 5 years and I never knew my husband likes sauerkraut. He requested it with sausages on a bun. I found some beef sausages which should work. I don't know what's supposed to be served for vegetables with this German inspired menu. Potato salad? Just a regular salad sounds more appealing. Maybe I'll do both, or maybe I'll buy a bag of potato chips too have along with a tomato filed salad. I also put some of the sausages into another pot with sweet barbecue sauce, since not all of us are cabbage fans.

Feeding men is expensive!

Not necessary.

When my grandmother was little, her mother would cook dinner. When her father came home and it was time to serve the dinner, her mother, herself and brothers would sit at the table until her father finished eating whatever he wanted. Then he'd go smoke and read while they finished whatever was left.

lt was just the way families did things a century ago.

Try this and it won't bust your budget.

And as an added bonus, it goes with dieting.

Oh heck no! We all sit down and eat together. I make up plates for the little ones first, then everyone else can take what they like, buffet style, and bring it to the table. I do need to lose some weight but my husband does too. Maybe we should feed the kids first,  especially the teenagers, and then both fight over the scraps. As it is, I have to stand and watch the teenagers load their plates to make sure they leave some for anyone behind them.

My expense comment was related to the amount of meat, specifically, that men tend to eat. I'd be content to eat mostly vegetables and grains, but my guys complain. (Except the youngest, who is vegetarian, only occasionally making an exception for a fish stick or two.) Halal sausages are crazy expensive around here, especially for as little nutrition as they provide.

:D

Buffet style? Daily at home? l gotta think about that one. With a large gathering, sure.

Feed the little ones first, then hand the teenagers smaller plates. 

Halal and Kosher are over priced everywhere. l am sure you have explored meat substitutes. 

What about a food shipment you ordered online or by phone?

We have a depot around here that also has Halal. Maybe there is one in your area.

By "buffet style", I mean I arrange the food on the stove or kitchen counter, and the adults and big kids proceed in a line, first come first served. There are six of us. The four-year-old always has his plate prepared for him, but my daughter sometimes gets her own, depending on what we are having. (She can build her own tacos, but needs help to ladle stew or soup, for example.) I find that bringing the food to the table to serve "family style" takes up too much space and encourages the fat adults to take second (or third) servings that they don't need.

Ate: My husband's doctor recommended that he reduce his sugar intake, so I modified my pizza crust recipe by adding some whole wheat flour and using artificial sweetner for part of the sugar. It came out odd, "crackery", but not terrible. For last night's supper I had the veggie pizza, which was good but I'm not fully satisfied with the crust. This morning I had a piece of the cheese only pizza and it was remarkably unpalatably bland.

Eating: grapes and mini-pretzels.

Will eat: the menu says grilled chicken, but I'm not confident that the weather will be suitable for grilling. Perhaps it will be baked chicken. I've got some vegetables for salad. Probably bread would go well with this too.

Not-me must have been a mess sargent in the army.

No, I inventoried ammunition.

I'm just used to keeping a budget, and planning meals makes shopping more efficient. For a while my kids and I got food stamps. For four of us, they gave $450 per month, which was more than we routinely used, even though we ate better than ever before in my life.

Now for six of us, including one adult man and two teenage young men, I routinely exceed $800 per month, even though I try to limit it to $650. It isn't a matter of what we can afford, I just don't want to get out of the habit of efficiency.

Long ago, long before the food stamps, when my two boys were little shortly after my first husband left, we had a running joke: "What do you want for dinner tonight - beans and rice or rice and beans?" And you know, there's hundreds of ways to prepare beans, but they all taste like beans.

Depends on the cheese. Mine ended up being about room  temperature by the time I got to the table. I'm not complaining, it was fine.

Ate pizza frittata. When I had a home day care, the kids called this "egga-pizza". Here's how it goes together. Beat eggs with garlic powder and basil and pour into greased large casserole dish. Top with mozzarella cheese and veggies or meat. Today we had bell pepper, onion, jalapeno pepper, and olives. Bake at 400 until puffy and eggs become solid. It will fall after you take it out of the oven, and the eggs do a nice mimicry of pizza crust. 

Eating: "Mystic Mint" herbal tea. It's nice. 

Will eat: I don't know.

I've never been good at planning ahead but I was inspired by notme planning all her dinners for the whole month and tried it for October. Boy has it changed my life! Thank you. It has made shopping and cooking so much easier and was not as intimidating as I imagined. 

Tonight on the menu was salmon, rice, and mixed veggies. But today was a crazy day and we were out so we ate at Moe's Southwest grill which is our go to place and I had my usual which is the loaded nachos. Was divine as always.

:dwarf:"Ahhhhhhhhh ...lf l do this, then there is shopping lists and budgets to calculate. lt is not just this added work, but it will bust my meager budget. Heck, as my sister and l were just talking, the grocery stores have all raised their prices this month ---all together like a financial conspiracy."

Food:braveheart:   Free from planning. Free to shop cheap. Free to eat whatever l can afford.
