I miss Jamie Oliver!

He had a TV cooking program some years back that I really enjoyed.

He popped up again in a program where he tried to get public school kitchens to serve the kids decent food but it was cancelled.

He met with so much resistance from school boards and school cooks who were happy with the status quo and to egotistical to consider anything he suggested.

Status quo 1, kids 0

During the week DD does the cooking while I am at work.
I bought a couple packs of stir fry veggies. One was Asian and one was basic generic (pine nuts, broccoli, bell peppers, onion, black olives, yellow and green squash). I think DD will be making the basic with bow ties pasta. I will write directions for her and cross my fingers. LOL I will reap the outcome when I get home from work.

Tonight everyone is on their own! I have Choral Society rehearsal and DH and the yungun are going to Norfolk to see a man about a car. They will not get home before I have to leave. They'll probably grab a burger while they are out and I'll have a salad here at home before rehearsal.

I don't WANT a burger!

I'm going to grill some chicken breast scallopine and serve with fettuccine Alfredo and a salad.

I wouldn't mind a good burger..there is a local chain here called Five Star Burger with outstanding burgers, but I am concentrating on eating in, these past few weeks.

Thinking dinner will include chicken, potatoes, and a green vegetable.

I won an Italian goodie basket at the porch crawl raffle yesterday, which included a package of basil-garlic polenta. I have asparagus, goat cheese and a chicken breast in the fridge that need to be used. So I'm trying to come up with a way to combine these. I think I see the grill pan coming out.
