Succotash Pie

I made succotash pie and side salads for dinner. Upon tasting the pie I knew it had to be too good to be low-fat. I immediately arose from the table to check the refrigerated pie crust box label. Yep, it had more fat than the Ranch salad dressing Anthony was using on his salad. I decided to save half of my portion of the pie for tomorrow so that I did not eat too much saturated fat in one sitting.

I questioned Anthony as to what he thought of the meal. I thought the pie was amazing and I loved the crunchy romaine lettuce. It was quite edible even without salad dressing. To my pleasant surprise, Anthony said that he does not usually like succotash but that it was pretty good tucked inside the pie pastry. I began to lightly chide him saying that he was a southerner, how could he not like succotash? I said my Gramma liked to make succotash and would put sausage in it. He said his Mom had made it too.

I made a wholesome lunch today of brown rice and black-eyed peas. Rather tasty. I wouldn't mind eating it again.

Thanksgiving After Thanksgiving

We had a turkey dinner on this cold rainy day. It definitely hit the spot.  I made smashed potatoes to accompany the turkey. Anthony asked if there were any secret ingredients, I replied water. Yes, I actually put water instead of milk in my potatoes for liquid, and yogurt instead of sour cream. The potatoes were nice and fluffy. I sprinkled rosemary and thyme on the turkey, and surrounded it with celery and onions. It smelled like stuffing while it cooked.

While the meal was delicious, we both decided that having each other there was what made the meal. He was glad to have a wife that cooked him dinner. I was glad to have a husband to eat the dinner that I had cooked.

Revolutionary Dinner

Yes, I did combine pasta and grits in a single dish, and it was amazing. I sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on top. The dish tasted similar to macaroni and cheese.
