I had a taco salad (with refried beans) while TB had turkey tacos and all the fixings.

For my lighter evening meal I am having a single slice tuna melt and some tomatoes from our garden.

We drove home from DC today and got home about 6 pm. We unloaded the car, poured some wine and watched the news, then heated up leftover pork chops and pad Thai. I garnished the pad Thai with Thai sweet chili sauce and lime juice. Nice easy meal after a long day.

Not "no one" K-girl! There are a few fans around here. I really love them with bacon, mushrooms, tarragon and garlic powder. Even better the second day...for breakfast.

Today was "haircut day", so we had leftovers. I guess Himself didn't have much appetite after seeing how much was gone, so the last of the bbq pulled chicken and leftover veggies was plenty.

one more who loves brussel sprouts. they are just cabbages for the wee folk.

and they look cool to grow. i had no idea how to grow them until my fil taught me.

does anyone know if you can eat the stem (after peeling)?

dw shocked me for a second day with dinner. yesterday was chicken parm; tonight was roast beast from a butcher, mashed spuds, green coleslaw, and fresh oat bread and butter.

i don't know what to say. after all of my compliments to her, i'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Leftover chili and we like brussel sprouts too. Craig cooks them with onions, bacon, glazes with balsamic and I don't remember what else but they sure are good.

I love Brussel's sprouts! :)

I get fresh ones and cut off a bit of the "stump" and then peel a few leaves from the outside, then chop them in half. Then I add a small amount of water in a microwave safe dish (often a measuring cup), cover with plastic wrap and nuke about 3-4 minutes.

Then I drain, liberally butter them, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mmmmm!!!!! :)

Note that I have determined that 4 oz. pre-cooked weight is an optimum serving size.
