I had a tasty side-dish of halved red peppers, with tomatoes and garlic, baked alongside a bought deluxe lasagna and lightly steamed cauliflower.

I baked tilapia and made Andy's rice pilaf. Also steamed some broccoli. It was pretty good. I didn't realize I had used my last container of chicken broth on the ham and beans. Fortunately, I had a container of chicken base that I could make up some broth. It was the first time I'd used the base. I thought it was very flavorful and easy to mix up.

They actually helped me make everything tonight, I ended up making 2 triple braids, I rolled the 6 logs and my son and his girlfriend braided them, they didn't do too bad, my other son and his friends put the sauce, chz, and toppings on the pizza...

We actually had left overs tonight!!! Normally that is un heard of but from 2 16" pizzas this is left, and an entire loaf of bread, that I my sons girlfriend is going to take home for her parents, she is very proud of her braiding...

We had roasted chicken, potatoes and carrots seasoned with Penzey's Mural of Flavor. I also had a chocolate pudding cup

That Zuppa Toscana looks really good. I have some kale in a window box and fingerlings sprouting...I think I have one dinner for next week figured out.

Slow roasted lamb shoulder about to come out of the oven, along with some roasted potatoes from our favorite Mediterranean restaurant that I'm trying to duplicate...Potatoes (fingerlings) tossed with lemon juice, olive oil (using some rosemary infused OO my sis sent for Christmas), garlic, S&P and a little sumac. Kale, mustard and arugula salad our of the green house, dressed with more rosemary oil and white balsamic vinegar.
