I'm taking a serving of enchiladas out of the freezer and SO is having a salad in a taco shell with chicken.

I did my take on:

Steven and Chris | Arbequina Olive Bucatini

I didn't have spaghetti...didn't add chicken. I am thinking this would be nice with anchovies/paste. It is very, very good. I used 1 whole preserved lemon. No salt, but it is salty. I used parm, I didn't have the cheese used. I did have cilantro, but not as much as the recipe used. Waiting to see what the DH thinks of it. He probably won't like the olive pits...

Haven't a clue. DH's plane gets in at 7:20 pm. We may just stop somewhere on the way home from the airport. If he's too tired, I may just heat up the leftover spaghetti.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Since it is quite a bit chillier than it was, we are going to bake the Calzones for a casual dinner and I am preparing a Minnestrone Vegetable Soup ... This afternoon, we had lunch out at a typical Apulian Trattoria ...

Off to the market to check out the shrimp and crab for "Frogmore Stew" - baguettes, and Strawberry shortcake from the bakery.

Having family over for one of 3 easter dinners. Going non traditional tonight with ribs, lemon garlic prawns, smashed baby potatoes, mushrooms, asperagus and salad with lemon blackberry cheesecake for dessert.

Yes I am trying to eat healthy, no I am not on a diet.
