Everything came out wonderful. The best surprise yesterday was finding that my little asparagus patch survived last week's snow and pushed up a couple of dozen stalks, so we had those for dinner as well.

Thanks PF! It was a very simple dinner, but sometimes simple is delicious.

I made a Thai chicken curry with onions and bell peppers and a bunch of seasonings. I forgot to include in the picture the jar of Thai curry paste and can of coconut milk that went in as well.

Yummers. Very nice looking dinners.

What kind of dipping sauce did you make, Steve?
And do you use a protractor when you turn your tuna?

Lol, Pac. The grill marks are calculated using a slide rule and astronomical chart. Or sometimes I just stick a finger in the air and see which way the wind is blowing.

The sauce is yogurt, horseradish, lemon zest, and s&p. Tastes equally good on artichokes, fish, and even french fries.

Thanks. I usually go lime and capers in place of the lemon and horseradish, but that's because I can never seem to acquire a taste for horseradish.
Outstanding looking meal.

Well, there was a change in plans. SO's appointment became an issue and I decided to cancel my KFC run. I baked some Tyson breaded chicken tenderloins and we had that with some pasta salad. These Tyson tenderloins are among the better prepared chicken things we've tried for emergency meals.

Steve, that tuna looks so good I just might take my supply of Trader Joe tuna steaks from the freezer and have Himself grill them tonight. Have some chicken to use up...but I suppose that could grill today, get dinnered tomorrow. Decisions Decisions. *sigh*
