Leftover pizza baby!

OK I totally slummed it. But we're getting the remnants of Danny here today, so I have plenty of inside time to whip up a feast tonight.
My thoughts, exactly. Thinking of making my famous (okay, in my own little world) Merlot pot roast, with horseradish mashed potatoes. It's just that kinda day, isn't it?
I'm glad its cooling off, as I find it difficult to cook at times during the summer. I hate to turn the oven on, plus a lot of things (stews, chili, casseroles, etc.) are just kinda heavy and filling.

I made a risotto with turkey cutlet, spinach, tomato, bell pepper, and rosemary on Saturday night. The wife requested a carbo load as she took a big marathon training run yesterday.

Last night she made these homemade corn tortillas and ort of turned them into empanadas stuffed with mushrooms and beans and onion and cheese. The Mexican book I got for her birthday is paying dividends!
YUM!!! Those both sound great!

I'm a big fan of Mexican food. Oddly, I sort of avoided fish tacos for the longest time. They just sounded ... not right somehow. Then, The Hubby tried this recipe and I was bowled over.

I know what you mean about the heavy "fall" fare not working well in the summer. But, I do love the fall woods. Which is why I've got the roast in the crock pot right now (ended up not making it Saturday.) We've definitely got the weather for it today. At least this morning when I had the dogs in the park, it certainly felt fall like.
