Dinner, Saturday, April 7th?

I am going to a potluck at a friend's house. He likes to BBQ, so I am sure that there is going to be some good food. I heard him on the phone the other day ordering a keg of Fat Tire beer!! I am going to bring Spinach Salad with Sun-dried Tomatos and Farfalle and if I have time, Jkath's Jack Daniels Kielbasa. The bad news is that is is supposed to thunder and lightning again, so we might have to move the gathering indoors.

What's for dinner at your house?

Kim and I are both sick as dogs with colds. If I can get my act together enough to make a white sauce, we may have chipped beef on toast.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Oh Connie, I wish I could send you some of my home made veggie soup. Hope you two feel better soon.

leftovers for us tonight. Pork chop bits in onion sauce gravy over mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, with NY Times bread.

I think I'll be making jambalya with smoked sausage. I've got a cold too and can't taste much so hopefully the spicy dinner will clear the sinuses. If not, I guess I'll just have to pull out the chips and salsa later!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Ok, today was spent shopping, eating and drinking. 6 Raspberry Mojito's later we stopped at Fresh & Wild (Whole Foods) and bought yummy bread, olives, brie, vegetable chips, and the boys had some spicey sausage and ham. We layed everything out on plates in the living room and pigged out while watching Casino Royale and ending our feast with brownies. MMMMM! I don't even wanna know how many calories I consumed today!

My husband has a cold too...what a horrible patient he is. We are going to grill a couple filet mignons & some carrots, saute poblano peppers & onions and have a spinach salad with roasted red peppers, red onion, apples, toasted almonds, feta & blush vinaigrette. And a bottle of Francis Coppola's Black Label Claret Cabernet Sauvignon 2004.
