Doh! I was going to post the same song. It was the first thing to enter my head when I read the thread title.

Supper will be tacos, both beef and chicken. You see, when I made yesterday's chicken soup, I kinda forgot about the chicken I had set aside. Technically, that makes last night's supper chicken stock soup. I'll shred the chicken and heat it in some salsa verde, and use the ground beef that was going to be beef and mac for ground beef tacos.

What's shakin' at your place?
I have several cans of Coco Lopez in the pantry, but no rum.

My plan for tonight is Italian sausage, peppers, and onions. I'll let you know what actually happens.

As your attorney, I advise you to add rum to your smoothie. (Hunter S Thompson reference.)

I ran up and down the stairs too many times and pooped myself out. Back in January our water heater broke and flooded the basement. The insurance people have been slow. Today, a guy came and put dry wall in the places the previous crew had taken down. So, we ordered Greek food. I had a gyro platter and Stirling had two gyro pitas and an order of fries. It was yum.

Oh My
All of your dinners look and sounds great!

I was inspired by our Cooking Goddess and found me two
beautiful bone-in Pork Chops.
I did a WWW search and I'm going with The Kitchn's
recipe.

I'll serve it up with some Roasted Taters and TJ's Soycutash
Wish me luck, since I've not had much when it comes to Pork Chops

Glad to hear the basement damage is finally getting fixed, Taxy.

This afternoon's dinner was leftovers from yesterday - game hen, rice, and broccoli. Sure wish I had some ice cream for dessert. I'm craving it now but not enough to get real clothes on and drive out for it.

I wanted one taco each of beef and chicken, so I used small corn tortillas. Refried beans with cheddar cheese too.
