I had picked up a few of the Hatfield pork tenderloins on sale a few weeks ago, going to cook one of them on the grill tonight along with some zucchini and yellow squash. Think I'll make myself a plate of tomatoes, mozzarella and basil too.

I skipped the olives, added avocado, tiger shrimp, sweet pepper, fresh tomatoes (yellow pear and grape tomatoes) a bit of grated parm. It was very good. The spirolli is so much fun to use. Unfortunately, my digital camera no longer likes rechargeable batteries...I have to get some regular batteries for it. Darn.

Must be a shrimpy kind of night! I've got some shrimp thawing on the counter, and I've got a zucchini all ready to go. I'll likely go pick some tomatoes, and maybe some hot peppers too. I'll see what else there is to toss in there and call it dinner. I think pasta sounds good too.

I'm using up some leftovers, based on a recipe in the book "On Top of Spaghetti." I sauteed onion, garlic and celery, added red wine, chicken broth and tomato juice and a spoonful of leftover pesto and simmered a bit. Then added chopped leftover pork chops and homegrown, roasted Roma tomatoes and simmered some more. Now I'm baking a "take 'n bake" third of French bread to make garlic bread and will serve all this with penne pasta. It's almost ready

SO is once again on an Atkins diet so I get dragged into it a little too. Tonight I grilled a kielbasa and we had it with fresh veggies.

Soft scramble eggs with green onions and jalapeno peppers. Caesar salad with a very lemony garlicky dressing with a mashed anchovy in the dressing. Sliced a tomato to surround the salad. The plate looked real purty before I dug into it.

I made an old school "Tamale Pie"....it's been a very long time since I made it. Now I remember why it was such a hit back in the day.

I used to make a mole tamale pie...I think the recipe was in Bon Appetit or Gourmet in the late '80s. It had a cornmeal crust...it was very good and I've often thought about making it again...care to share your recipe/ingredient list?
