I've had rather a lot of chocolate, beer and crisps today. This is mainly as I have had some loungin' time here and there.

That kind of foodstuff is great while you're eating it, but you invariably feel poo afterwards.

Come back cabbage, all is forgiven!
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

I'm back on my keto diet so I had a roast beef/chicken wrap (low-carb tomato tortilla, spinach, mont. jack cheese, and brown mustard). Pretty tasty.

Mom made a fantastic broccoli/noodle/cheese/chicken dish.

I love when I have no input and she hits it out of the park, it's a delicious surprise. This one started savory, and then kicked me in the ass with spicy, I was truly impressed.

Unfortunately, when I asked for instructions if I want to make this later, it was pretty much a shrug. She used what she had on hand to make dinner.

I figure I've complained about her mistakes enough I owe her some praise here.

As far as I can tell, it was broccoli florets over elbow noodles, chunked up chicken I assume she steamed and seasoned, the cheese sauce and the spicy are a void. We've got cheese, we've got spicy stuff, I think I tasted Worcestershire sauce in there, which kicks broccoli right in the ass, high recommend there.

I think the Worcestershire sauce was a surprise because she usually just uses that for burgers. Her experimenting is heartening. I think I've mentioned it before, but when I came back from NJ, she just ate crappy frozen dinners. It's nice to see her be alive.

As to the sauce, the reason it's a black hole is I KNOW she didn't mix a bechamel. Because I joke about that with her all the time. "First make a bechamel" has led to oven mittens being thrown at my head many a time.

Still, whatever it was, it was nice. And white. Definitely not an alfredo, she DESPISES alfredo.

Either way, it's nice to feel happy after dinner. Times are rough, and any levity is a treat.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

That sounds tasty.  I am eating potato chips for the salt.  And washing them down with cold seltzer.
