My dinner tonight ended up being Tuscan Butter Chicken from Olive Garden (SO had a BOGO coupon). It was very good.

Poor Husband (I'm calling him this until he gets better) hasn't had
much of an appetite, so I've been trying to dream up easy,
light and tasty dishes. 🤔
I was thinking that I was about to run out of leftovers to re-heat,
and I have,
so I made a Pasta Salad yesterday, to sit and meld for tonight's supper.

I put some shredded Romaine and diced Tomatoes
on the bottom of the bowl and topped it off with
a good portion of my Anitpasto-Inspired Pasta Salad.

I think we'll have another Brownie Sundae for dessert later

That looks really tasty.

I scored a really nice USDA Prime ribeye marked down because it was down to one day on the sell-by date. It still wasn't "cheap," but I couldn't pass it up.

I'll sous vide it and sear it, as usual. Baked potato with butter, sour cream and fresh chives on the side.

I had to work with my son to change the brake pads in my vehicle, so no fishing. I caught 2 Gorton's breaded fillets, and one frozen sockey salmon steak from my freezer. Pan fried along with steak fries, and accompanied with some green beans. It was a tasty, and easy supper.

Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Turned out better than I'd hoped.

Wow....taxy! That looks wonderful. Love everyone's dishes this evening. I had another throw-together plate this afternoon. It was a clean out the fridge day for me, too.

I ended up with sliced roasted beets, smoked salmon, a handful of fresh picked sweet cherry tomatoes, cubed surimi, deviled egg, sliced cucumber. And a couple of glasses of wine.

It turned out great!

I couldn't finish the whole steak, so I've got some awesome leftovers for tomorrow. I'm stuffed.
