left over salmon patty, with creamed spinach on top. couple of veggies. maybe one will be fresh baby carrots just steamed. if i do the carrots will have a green veggie also. even though the spinach is green, probably won't put on enough to count as a serving. popcorn for dessert.

Then, I have chicken breast marinating in chili seasoning, lime, garlic and oil. That will be grilled and sliced thin for fajitas with red and green peppers and onions. Fajita toppings will be shredded cabbage, diced tomato and sliced avocado. Black bean and corn salsa as a side and I'm making a yellow rice (with achiote) as another side.

Dessert is Edy's vanilla ice cream (that is our splurge- love the Edy's!) topped with a frozen fruit mix that I got frozen at Trader Joe's- mango, pineapple, stawberry and blueberries in a simple syrup.

Strong coffee and Corona.

thankfully the cable guy just left after restoring my cable reception, just in time!
That's sounds really yummy.

Is blue cabbage what a Dane would call red cabbage? Is that a rouladen made with beef? pork? I'm getting hungry just thinking about this.
