She's doing well but needs some company and we're happy to visit. It's a 40 minute drive so I have a feeling we'll be hitting rush hour on the way home and Sofie still isn't keen on long car rides. This might be a pick up subs/pizza kind of evening.
I'd be glad to Pa
It's simple and spicey, you can controll the heat by the amount of the serrano chile you use.
here goes:
1-large. avocado, chop coarsley
1-3 serrano chiles- I use just a half of one, kids are not fond of HOT
3-Tab. fresh lime juice
1-tea. kosher salt
Place avocado in f/p or blender. Add the amount of chiles you want, lime juice,salt and bout a 1/4-c. water blend til smooth, you can thin it more with water if you want. Refrigerate til ready to use, it keeps only about 1 day, if there is any left I put it in a pitcher that I use for maple syrup to serve it, not so many drips and spills
It is also wonderful on pork that is shredded and put on corn tortillas emm..my favorite, hope the shrimp ones taste as good.

Husband brought home a package of really thin-cut "scallopini-style" turkey cutlets Tuesday, so last night I made them a la Marsala - with lots of sauteed Crimini mushrooms. Served them with some plain buttered broccoli spears & garlic mashed potatoes.

Not what I consider a "summer" meal, but I had a taste for it.

I've got two stuffed peppers leftover from Tues, so I guess I heat them up.
