You can't fool me with that funny French word. You ate zucchini!
I had BBQ Tri-Tip last night. It t'was good.
Made chicken drumsticks with Idaho potatoes and chocolate brownies for desert.
Barbecued chicken, coleslaw, cornbread and brownies that had so much sugar, they nearly made my feet come off the floor.
In other words, a typical Texas Labor Day weekend.
I had a shredded beef stew in a Crock-pot with carrots, cabbage, potatoes, canned tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, celery and parsley earlier today.
That, of course, went with a glass of milk.
Then, I had an chocolate-covered ice cream bar.
Last night, I had 2 small pizzas with added pepperoni and cheese with a glass of milk, followed by one of those aforementioned ice cream bars.
Mushroom and fresh pepper omelet with two slices of facon.
garlic steak and steamed vegetables (potato, sweet potato and some beans)
This side of the pond thing I think... I hardly ever hear anyone referring to it as zucchini.
Is that some kind of vegetarian bacon?
^Saturday was international bacon day I might add!
We got lazy last night, and postponed the fiesta we were going to have. We had pre-made ravioli and a jar of spaghetti sauce...oh boy!
Choc chip cookie with a cup of tea.
Hey no worries, I can give someone a guilt trip like the little old grandmother you haven't called in 6 months.
I was tied up dealing with that health crisis anyway. Probably good that I was around, her bf is a complete doofus.
Plus my wife would have thought something was fishy if I told her I was willingly hanging out with a lawyer.
Fried fish, seasoned french fries and tossed salad
I had a cheese sandwich on a bagel accompanied with a rice krispy treat...OK fine I had 2 of them...and chocolate chip cookies...quantity 3. I made sure to cover all the important food groups.
Funny thing is, I'm not even vegetarian. I just loathe all things pig, and LOVE facon.
Seriously made me laugh, only in my life it's my mom, not my grandmother. Grandma just seems happy whenever I call. Mom, on the other hand ....
And, yeah, I'm not big on socializing with other lawyers, either. Boring as all hell.
To the matter at hand, yesterday I made pesto with basil from The Hubby and my MIL. So last night I made one of my favorite pesto dishes. I smoked some nice Alaskan salmon and accompanied that with a nice, fresh penne pesto with tomatoes (from The Hubby's little garden plot), asparagus tips, a little red pepper and sun-dried tomato. I'd meant to make enough to have left overs for lunch today but ....
Beef fillets, wrapped in bacon, green beans with Mrs. Dash, sour cream and chive mashed potatoes, and a side of corn bread.
Engineers aren't known for our social prowess either, and don't get me started on my Mom, it ain't pretty.
I love the idea of everything you mentioned other than the pesto. I just haven't tried the right one yet.
Something about burping it out for 3 days afterwards that has always turned me off to it.
Lots of vintage champagne to celebrate yesterday's birthday (couldn't go out yesterday because of work, so went out today instead), followed by a smashing meal at a local decent brasserie. The rhubarb brulee for dessert was particularly fun.
Angel hair pesto with broccoli last night.
Tonight, lemon-pepper salmon, new potatoes and salad w/creamy Cesar dressing.
... ummmmmm ..., yeah ..., about that .... When you decide it's time to buy a house (as you mentioned somewhere else), we should talk. REALTORS(R) aren't the highest forms of life (I can say that, I spend my life dealing with their f**k-ups), but they're often necessary to the process, and they tend to have a particularly low opinion engineers as clients (believe it or not, attorneys juuuuuust beat you out by a hair - for whatever that's worth.)
Yeah, it took me several years to come up with a good recipe. It seems so simple, but definitely takes some doing to get it right.
And, I do have to admit, this wasn't my best. The basil was getting a little "long in the ..., er ... leaf."
