I had a horrible day today, so when I got home I made every comfort food within reach:
Barbecued corn on the cob, mushrooms and onions browned on the stove, steamed fresh sweet peas, and smashed potatoes (baby russets with the skin left on, boiled to within an inch of their life and battered around with butter and garlic 'til they fall apart).
It helped a bit.
Tonight will be my vegan lasagna sans noodles. But this time, instead of eggplant as the noodles, i'm going to slice zucchini thinly and make that. I'm in the mood for Italian. We're going to have juicy ripe nectarines for dessert. They're so juicy that i have to wash my chest, neck, chin down afterwards. (tanktops don't catch much of the juices)
We're having "Build Your Own Pizza" night tonight. We each have toppings we love but the other doesn't like. So we set out a number of ingredients and then we each use the ingredients we want to make our pizzas. I went simple tonight, with just cheese, sweet Italian sausage, and black olives. Jackie likes more toppings. She used cheese (of course), pepperoni, black olives, tomatoes, onions and mushrooms. I usually use tomatoes also, but I just didn't feel it this time.
