8/13/2019 - National Prosecco Day Dinner

It's National Prosecco Day!


I think we have a bottle in the wine fridge. I'll see if Mrs. T wants to indulge today.

Thundershowers are in the forecast, so it's an indoor cook tonight. Chicken tenders in bacon pesto cream sauce, served over spinach pasta, house salad.

I think we will order pizza. Pepperoni is our favorite.

Double barrel pizza (pepperoni, soprasatta, onions, basil - margarita on other side) and tried the other half of cheesecake batter in square springform. All came out good tonight :)

Must be pizza day! Great pics, everyone.

I have several vine ripened tomatoes to use up, so I'm thinking dinner will be grilled cheese and tomato on sourdough, and a small side salad.

We're having shrimp scampi lasagna and steamed broccolini.

This is the last day of the "soft food" for SC. WOOOO HOOOOO

Since I am a klutz today, we ordered from Thai Express. I got an imperial roll, two chicken wings for later, and beef pad see ew. Stirling got chicken pad thai. These may not be wonderfully authentic, but they sure were tasty.

I went with Taco Tuesday, using leftover steak from Sunday. It's too hot to cook.

No pizza here, but we did get take-home from our favorite pizza place. Himself suggested that we order a steak bomb calzone and pick it up on our way home from too much running around. I don't remember ever posting a photo of it in the past, but today's was worth a picture. Boy, was it stuffed - and now we are, too.

The Elders had brats. corn-on-the-cob and purple beans. Vanilla ice cream with dark chocolate sauce for dessert. I don't eat after 3:00 p.m. Goodness knows what
I will make for them tomorrow.
