You're not consuming a heavy meal late in the day when your body doesn't really need the fuel.

Tonight we are having black beans, rice, and homemade corn tortillas.
Thanks so much for that info Steve

Harry, with food like that around, I'm surprised there's only one lady hanging around!

I'm still without a kitchen sink and going without much home cooking is a real pain the last eight days. My new counters and sink are suppose to be installed Thursday, finally!
I went to Trader Joe's today and they were demonstrating a really tasty one pan meal so I bought all the packaged ingredients and it was delish!! At least there was only one pan and two plates to wash in the bathtub!

Spaghetti and a salad. I made a big pot of the sauce a couple of months ago and divided it up into 'me' size foodsaver bags for the freezer - so that was an easy dinner.

Happy Anniversary, Alix and Ken! We love A Taste of Vancouver!

Well, we didn't have the Italian sausage subs since I didn't take the sausages out to thaw. But I did take the bassa fillets out for tomorrow and they were thawed so we had that with rice pilaf and steamed snap peas.

Whoops, I left that out didn't I.

Well in an electric skillet the Trader Joe's demonstrator browned up a package of their diced Pancetta, added a package of their fresh "Asparagus Saute" with sliced mushrooms, and onions.
I added some snipped sun dried tomatoes to mine, and then added a whole package of TJ's frozen "Gnocchi al Gorgonzola". Simmered all for 10 minutes. There was so much Gorgonzola in the Gnocchi that it made a lovely cheese sauce with just a little water added. Durn fine meal in just a few minutes and I'll make it again for sure.
