I'm going to Babe's for dinner!

No idea, probably leftover fried rice.

I cooked some brown rice yesterday so that I could use it for tonight's chicken fried rice. So that and a salad = dinner. =)

Oh yeah, I think I'll make a salad, too. With blue cheese.

I made beef and veggie soup with the pot roast, carrots, celery, onion, peas, mushroom caps (quartered), Trader Joe's teeny tiny potatoes (halved), burgundy gravy (from the eye round roast) and the au jus (from the pot roast).

sounds really good, mofet.

and thanks, kylie. if you like hummus try mincing some pickled jalapenos into it. really kicks it up from the heat and the vinegar.

Unlike my friend Pac, I didn't make it to the store. In fact I ended up rushed to get food on the table by 1 pm PST so I sliced off a nice chunk of one of the roasts I got 2 for 1 on Saturday and sliced it on the bias to make a ginger beef and baby boc choi stir fry. TB had rice, I had mine plain. It turned out great! I am really doing well learning to make great stir-fries without soy sauce. I used some red wine, beef broth and fish sauce, with fresh garlic and ginger. It turned out very nice!

Yum! My shopping trip was just for some spinach, tomatoes and an orange for my salmon dish. Now I am thinking that when I go tomorrow I am going to grab some scallops to go with it! Thanks for the idea!

A bit of a mash up today. Had some feta so we went with Greek style salad. Not a bad combo....

Made grilled tuna steaks that were encrusted with lemon zest, parsley, chopped fresh rosemary and garlic. Baked potatoes and tossed salad with homemade vinaigrette were the sides. Washed it down with iced tea and finished with a slice of gubana for dessert. We're full.
