We had pork chop parm last night. Not sure about tonight.
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.
I through together a really nice pasta dish tonight for myself...
cheese tortellini, grilled chicken slices & broccoli all in a creamy cheese sauce that I made myself...it was so good!!!! YUM
Braised the pork with onions, peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes, then served over cauliflower mash.
Love a good deviled egg. We have a nice farm to table restaurant nearby that does a seasonal mix of them!
Made some potato soup quick tonight.

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 am tossing together a nice salad with......romaine lettuce, beets, sautéed veggies & grilled chicken
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!
Ohhhh that salad bar sounds good
Ms. Irene... We do that in the summer roaster chicken, strawberries, avocado, almonds & some strawberry vingerette. Yummy. Can't wait for summer.

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!

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 made hotdogs, pasta salad and had a cup of orange sherbert
Today it was a kale caesar salad at Paul Martin's restaurant.
One pot pasta.
