It's time again for my Tuesday night out to dinner with friends. We're going Italian tonight - I'm looking forward to chicken parmigiana with spaghetti, and taking half home for DH.

I making ropa vieja by shredding some slow-cooked flank steak, then adding it to sauteed onion, garlic and tomato. Cuban style black beans with yellow rice on the side and some warm corn tortillas to finish. I haven't made this in a long time and its relatively healthy.
I haven't made that in so long I've forgotten about it. I'll have to make that again soon.

Tonight is going to be portabello tops with a slice of fillet, skinned red pepper, and some melted feta cheese on top, served on dressed lettuce with a sprinkle of green onion and a side of some marinated olives.

Have a great time tonight, kads!

It's just dd and me tonight so we're going meatless. I'm not sure what you'd call it but I saute sliced veggies (tonight it's yellow and green squash, mushrooms, red onion and carrots) with garlic, add a jar of chunky spaghetti sauce, some quick cooking barley and some water. Cover it and let it simmer until the barley's tender and sprinkle it with mozzarella. As long as I tell Sofie that it's rice or noodles she's happy!

Thanks, Buckytom, almost lost the little booger as he had the cord wrapped around the neck. Now we know better. He was twisting it on purpose. Ha!! Everything was perfectly fine by the time all the drama was over. Of course. Taking him to a local Houston hibachi table to enjoy his fav which is sushi.

Happy Birthday to your son, Expatgirl. My oldest just had her 28th on Saturday. Where did the time go?

I know---can you believe the time that has gone by, Elaine? What's funny is that when my son became a father how suddenly I became "smart" again. Now, he listens any time that he needs advice.
