DH is headed back to DC tonight so I'll cook a bigger lunch than usual. I'm making chicken pattie sandwiches (I put a spoon of salsa and a slice of cheese on them). Not sure what the sides will be yet. Maybe a rice dish. Then DS and I will eat leftovers for supper tonight.

Pasta here, as well.

(My infamous ) Tomato & Avocado Salad

Either cheese & spinach-filled Manicotti
or
Ravioli tossed with melted butter, bread crumbs & mozzarella, and baked.

Tut, tut, it looks like rain. So it's crab cakes and asparagus for dinner tonight.

Gosh--THAT was the rain that kept you home? We had about 5 minutes of a light rain around noon...sigh, not enough.

Adding to this. We have a small loaf of French bread and fresh mozzarella so I'll chop some tomatoes and basil etc and make some bruschetta.

I tried my replicated Asian Green Beans...quite tasty, not exactly like the ones at the restaurant and I think I got through at least a pound of them...Shrek got maybe a quarter pound, the last 3/4ths is going to work with me tomorrow.
