The rest of my ancient grain mix with chicken and mushroom sausage and sautéed spinach

Love enchiladas!

Tonight is pizza, since we have a free one and I am wrapping up the semester's class work.

I'm getting basil in my veggie delivery today. I'm looking forward to making some pasta and pesto trapanese.

oh wow what a great dinner (lupper, actually). it's our independence day so we had:
salads/mezze - hummus, roasted eggplant and tomato with tahini sauce, spicy tomato salad, chopped tomato and cucumber salad, different cole slaw (cabbage mix, toasted almonds, cranberries), served with whole wheat pita (which stayed untouched) and GF crackers for nephew.

meats: chicken dogs, chicken breast with greek marinade, chicken burgers asian style, meat burgers.

Sides: rice (which nobody touched lol) and roast vegetables.

sorbet for dessert.

Was going to be pomegranate steak with mashed potatoes and a spinach salad. But, thunderstorms have knocked out our power (electric stove, no grill), so we'll try to have the good dinner tomorrow. Tonight will instead be takeout from our favorite Mexican place. I won't complain too much ;)

eggs, ham and blueberry pancakes. DH is in charge of dinner tonight :)

Sounds delicious! And happy Independence Day!

I had a couple of friends over tonight and I whipped up what I thought of as a fairly impressive weeknight dinner. The appetizers were endive topped with blue cheese and homemade almond and olive tapenade on homemade baguette (made this weekend, frozen, then pulled back out this morning.) The main course was baked rockfish smothered in mushrooms and roasted fennel. We ended up with vanilla ice cream topped with homemade magic shell. I had bought a bottle of wine to go with dinner, but one friend brought the ingredients for mojitos, which are a weakness of mine.

Homemade pasta salad with chopped tomato and broccoli florets.  I adapted the recipe from Jeanne Lemlin's Quick Vegetarian Pleasures and used Brianna's Asiago Caesar dressing (anchovy-free Caesar!  yay!) instead of the made-from-scratch dressing in the recipe.

I steamed some broccollini flowerettes and little mini carrots  then sauteed them  in grape seed oil, garlic, hot pepper flakes, ginger and sesame oil.  I added some Bragg's liquid amino and some raw cashews at the end.  I had it with steamed quinoa.  It was good!
I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

Mongolian Hot Pot with lamb, chicken, vegetables, a soup with cellophane noodles at the end and Tahitian Vanilla gelato for dessert. 

Gotta get us some berries to go with it.
