I made a version of dirty rice one night, and a pasta dish with tomatoes, broccoli, and white beans mixed in.

Tonight, it's chili.

Tonight I managed to replicate husband’s mom’s cabbage rolls! It was the one meal that we didn’t get from his mom before the estrangement and we hadn’t managed to figure out yet. I’d tried making them before, but while the sauce was OK, the filling was all wrong.

Tonight I tried again, and came pretty damn close! I used ground pork in the filling and cooked them on the stovetop. I knew his mom also used sour cream in the sauce. I didn’t tell husband I was making them ahead of time and he was so surprised.

The only thing I have to work on is rolling the cabbage - I had a bit of difficulty pulling the leaves off the head of cabbage so some of them tore.

Tonight, slow cooker chana masala over rice, with homemade sourdough naan on the side.

I also helped husband out a bit - he was in the 3 hour Zoom meeting from hell, so I made us breakfast burritos and delivered one directly to his desk. I made them with hash browns, scrambled eggs, some shredded cheese, and a bit of salsa.

Pan-fried pork chops with whiskey-glazed gingered carrots, and last night was root veg minestrone.

I made takeout-style beef and broccoli. Served over rice.

This is the fourth day in a row we’ve eaten rice - good thing we like it!

I made chicken cacciatore in the slow cooker a few nights ago, with bone-in chicken thighs. Came out pretty good.

Last night husband made another grilled pizza, but he had issues getting it from the cutting board, to the pizza peel, to the grill, and then back onto the peel once it was cooked. It was kinda deformed when he was done, but luckily it still tasted good!

We got a raclette grill last week, so we tried it out last night. In addition to the melty, gooey cheese, we had onions and peppers, mushrooms (for MrsCO), salami, ham, pickles, olives, and bread.
