Going out to dinner with a friend at El Torito restaurant in Sacramento, CA. I used to eat there alot when I was living here in the Sacramento Valley. I have not eaten there for years. I hope the food is still just as excellent as I remember.

Baby spinach, mushroom and blue cheese calzones. Not sure what else.

I ended up bringing the chicken, and flavored the brine w/ black pepper, garlic, sage, rosemary, and thyme. I grilled this, and made some Herbed Oven Roasted Potatoes, and nuked some sweet peas.

PeppA about had a litter of kittens, it was so good. She wants me to do this again.

I really really wanted a lobster for dinner, but I'm not paying $15 per lb, so I ordered the fried calamari from Olive Garden. Now normally I'm not keen on Olive garden, but their calamari is really good, dipped in the marinara sauce. Their sauce is not great, but hey, the calamari was perfectly done, not chewy at all.

Tonight we're eating shrimp and dolphin - the mahi mahi kind, not the bottlenose kind : P With some coconut rice and a mountain of vegetables. Yay! I've had the craving for weeks.

Our dinner tonight is still as yet, uneaten. The DH isn't home from work yet and it's 7:42 PM California time. I haven't slept since yesterday at 7:00 AM California time and I'm ready to collapse.
I manage dinner rolls, the ones PD made on her show today except I inserted a chunk of colby cheddarella, potato and cauliflower soup and Italian sausages on the Forman for the husbster. If he isn't home soon I'll be falling into slumber, alone and hungry

Well thankfully DH called before I had a chance to marinate the meat and veggies....he ended up taking me out to our favorite mexican resturant for some Fiesta Fajitas and a margarita.....YUM!

Se non supporta il calore, vattene dalla cucina!
