What are you having for dinner? 5.0


Thanks go to our many frequent posters.  This thread’s posts should often have great recipes and wonderful pictures.  But you do not need to post a picture or a recipe.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

After church this morning I went directly to my office to work
on the ever growing pile of tax work for my clients.   

I had lunch at the next door coffee shop:
     Chicken Soup, toast, and coffee............ lots of coffee!

Visiting my son and his partner. We sliced a couple eggplants, rolled the slices in flour, then in a whisked egg, then in spiced breadcrumbs and baked them. Made tomato sauce and served it all with pasta.

Did the apricot and chicken dish, very nice then used the yogurt in a veg dish that can be eaten warm . Also did a courgette dish while I was at it so that should keep me going for a good few days.

I am not hungry.  Not sure what to eat later.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Fish and green mango curry with rice and a chapati . When I have made this before it was always a bit sweet as the mango was too ripe but this time found a better one then added in some dried mango powder (sour) and I think its about right.
