I had some leftover hot dogs and sauerkraut, so I made an awesome sauerkraut soup (which will go in the freezer because it's too blasted hot for soup!) with veggies, potatoes, and cut up hot dogs.  Dang, I'm looking forward to Fall!

I did not use a recipe, but, it’s called “crack slaw” on lots of low carb blogs.  I used a 20 oz pack of ground turkey, generously seasoned with ginger and garlic, some soy sauce and rice wine vinegar.  I actually made the sauce with 1/3c low sodium soy sauce, a splash of the vinegar, a few cloves crushed garlic, and maybe 1-2t of ground ginger, and about a T of sweetener(sugar, brown sugar, I used Swerve, which is erithritol).  So, I used about half of that as I sautéed the turkey with some diced onions. I pulled out the turkey, and reduced juices, then added cabbage(2 bags shredded slaw), and the rest of the sauce.  Cook to desired tenderness, add back turkey, a bunch of diced green onion, and some toasted sesame oil.  We ate it straight up, but, this could be done as lettuce wraps, or with some rice.  You could sweeten it up with hoisen sauce,  or add heat with red pepper. 

If you google crack slaw you’ll get ideas for flavors.

Thanks. I'm not a fan of regular cabbage, but will eat nappa cabbage or bok choy or something like that. So I'd sub in one of those.

frozen ravioli - thats about all I have the energy to make.  I bought myself a very nice bottle of pinot noir to go with it, lol.  The wine cost more than the ravioli, sauce, parmesan cheese and half and half I just bought.  But its been that kind of day and I wanted a treat.

Napa would totally work.  I’ve used it before for a similar thing.

Last night we had spinach enchiladas. When DH makes enchiladas, he makes his own salsa verse. I use bottled. DH cooked, so we had a really yummy salsa verde on the enchiladas. 2.5 WW points each!

And we used the Kuners black beans (not refried) with jalapeños. OMG they are simply amazing.
Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

Since I’m alone for dinner, I decided to make Hawaiian Pizza. Did up a dough, and I guess due to the stormy weather it REALLY raised. I ended up with three pizza (the size of a medium cookie sheet). I considered making one with meat for DS and one with veggie for his friend because they will be getting here later. But that was a lot of work and I just didn’t want to.

Since I’ll have some granddaughters here tomorrow it will be snack for them.
Truly, it should be no problem to delay. Republicans completely blocked the nomination of a highly qualified candidate for a year and a half. They wouldn’t even consider him. It was more than rude—it was an abdication of duty.

So why the rush here? ~~MC
