Wait a minute here...
Can you really call a salad made with red curly lettuce, red cabbage, red onions and snow peas a green salad?

I'm on Plan B. I have three tacos shells in the cupboard. Three. [insert three capital letters here] am I doing with three taco shells when I eat them five at a time?
I am not going to make myself only three tacos for dinner...
So I'm on plan B. Some quick spaghetti using the hamburger is sounding good right now.

We picked up a pepperoni pizza on the way home from getting SO's car from the shop. A cold beer made a complete meal.

We went to our favorite restaurant here in Williamsburg. SO had fried ravioli and the acorn squash stuffed with quinoa, apples, cranberries, & pecans. I had the roasted vegetable bisque soup and the eggplant Parmesan. All good and I forgot to take pics. I'll do better at dinner tomorrow.
