    I got a pork tenderloin out of the freezer this morning; not sure what I'll be doing with it, though.

    Anniversary night! Going to a fancy restaurant. The deviled eggs and the mushroom risotto are my favorite there. Mmm, can't wait. :p

    They're so good. It was such a bummer last night though. They changed the menu and didn't have the deviled eggs or mushroom risotto. :( The souffle was good though.

    I have been obsessed with taco salad or roast chicken salad lately...I either brown some ground beef and throw in a spice packet (I know, boring!) or buy one of those pre-roast chickens, and put out all the salad toppings...lettuce, avocado or guacamole, sour cream, olives, salsa, etc, like a mini salad bar. It's pretty much all I've done the last two weeks, but my husband doesn't mind!

    Happy anniversary, Peregrin!

    YTG, what do carne asada bowls entail? Sounds yummy!

    Taco salad sounds good!
    Last night I had a salad w/a chopped salad bag mix, tomato and chopped avocado. I drizzled on some white balsamic vinegar that was infused with lemon. Just needed to add a little salt and that was it. I'm really tired of bottled salad dressings so I'm trying to just use other things.

    So easy to make your own vinaigrette. I usually do some good vinegar (balsamic, champagne or herbal) or lemon/orange juice with some EVOO....you can put in a spoonful of a nice mustard to emulsify it a bit, add some chopped herbs...lovely! I agree, it's nice to know what yor pouring on your salad!

    I'm having another salad tonight but will change it up a bit. I'll see what looks good at the store. My husband wants me to make him a special chicken dish so I'll just make a serving for him then I get to have my special salad :)

    It was my MIL's 94th birthday yesterday. We (me, my husband, my SIL and one of my husband's cousins) had a small birthday party for her at the long-term care facility where she is right now. She has a hard time chewing at times, so we took a picnic of easy to manage foods--grated coleslaw, quinoa salad, fruit salad, chicken, shepherd's pie and, at her request, chocolate cake and ice cream.

    I've had out-of-town guests for over a week and they leave today. Tonight, we are having left overs and wine!

    I have been getting bored with cooking so I try to grill a lot! My husband found some new recipes so I said I would make them. Saturday I made chicken/veggie kabobs w/pesto cream sauce and a bean and corn salad on the side. Tonight I making grilled chicken w/strawberry avocado salsa and Amish broccoli salad on the side.
