I've been using up fruits and veggies, so this afternoon's dinner was a mushroom, asparagus, and red bell pepper omelet, with a nice cold bowl of watermelon on the side. Quick and easy, and hit the spot.
Perfect... yum

Dinner 7-25-2016 ~ Your Monday Menu?

Baby Bro, his family, and I went out for Japanese. My tuna sashimi and miso soup were excellent. Then part of us went to another place, and shared a dessert sampler plate. I'm not a dessert person, but this was wonderful.

I made Alfredo mac and cheese tonight. I don't know why. I liked the sauce, but I found out a little goes a loooooong way. Not sure that I'm going to finish eating the rest of it.

DH loved the seared tuna I made last week so much that we had it again. Marinated it, along with a chicken breast left from another dinner, in soy sauce, oyster sauce, chile-garlic sauce, ginger and sesame oil, then sprinkled with sesame seeds and seared in my cast iron skillet. Also made sesame noodles topped with lightly pickled veggies and served the tuna over romaine. It was quite good

I have found over the years, that one cup of uncooked pasta is the perfect size for a single serving for one person. It doesn't matter if it is rigatoni or small elbows. At least for me, it makes for a single serving. And that is all I am interested in.

Actually Addie, size does matter. For example, a cup of uncooked orzo will yield much more than a single serving, especially by the time other ingredients are added.

Maybe it is for you, but not for everyone. Wife and I are way too active to get by on so little food.
