I had a couple pieces of bacon in the freezer and some spinach that was about to go feral on me so I made fried rice with bacon, spinach, shallots, garlic and a couple scrambled eggs seasoned with fish sauce and rice vinegar. I made the rice yesterday so it took me about 15 minutes to get it done, start to finish. I have enough left over for a couple lunches too! yum

Little tired of "holiday-type" food so I made a chicken scallopini with fresh mushrooms. Sides were the last of my homemade noodles (lightly buttered) and steamed Italian green beans from our summer garden. The crowning glory was the blackberry pie I made yesterday from the berries we picked from our vines. Tasted just as good as it all did last summer.

We ended up with tilapia filets, rice and aspargus. I went hunting and gathering.

I should have waited to cook the soup!! I ordered a chicken parm and it was NASTY!! GACK!! Cut into strips, the coating wasn't even browned and it looked more like they just dredged naked already cooked unseasoned chicken strips in seasoned crumbs and then topped with sauce and cheese!! DISGUSTING!!

Oh that stinks! I changed my mind about take-out standing in the frozen food aisle. Found the tilapia.

well was going to grill a rib eye steak. however had an ah ha moment. put it in the crockpot. on top i put a mixture of butter,mayo,green onions,green chilies, garlic powder . it was a spread i mixed up and put on sliced french bread and broiled. as usual i made to much. i just stole a bite and it is to die for. sweet potatoes and peas. put some chicken thighs to thaw. think i will do the same thing with them tomorrow night. now don't knock it till you try it. chocolate kisses for dessert. or maybe spinach, artichoke dip later for a snack.

I had my grilled ribeye, some spinach and another big bowl of mushroom gratin.
My palate has been satisfied.
