I got home way too late for dinner last night and forgot to leave my own welcome mat out. So it was tuna sammies on toast, w/ a handful of wavy potato chips and a scoop of chocolate ice cream. ( Who likes to dip their chips in soft ice cream. Yum)

Today, I am going out again, but this time I already have dinner ready to pull from the frig and put together when I get home. Taco salad on chopped romaine, and another scoop chocolate ice cream.

Baked Chicken thighs with a small salad. I will regret the salad, but the cukes an tomatoes are from the maintenance men's garden. I may just leave the lettuce out of it. Pirate can have that. I already had one leaf of it today. Why push my luck. No carbs for me though.

Mmmm....so many good sounding dinners today.

I'm going to make a loaded up salad - lots of produce to use up. Iceberg lettuce, romaine, radishes, cucumber, purple onion, shredded red cabbage, topped with croutons and ranch dressing. I'm frying up the last 2 pieces of bacon now to add to the mix.

Kay, you've just inspired me for tomorrow's dinner - I have some meatballs and marinara sauce (not together) in the freezer. A meatball sub sounds great!

Thanks. It was even better the second day. I think I'll freeze what's left. Our local dinner theater serves pulled barbecued beef nachos. Doesn't that sound good for a future meal?

GG, I looked at the recipe you linked and wonder how sweet the sauce was? What do you think?

We thought it was quite good. I cut way back on the jalapeņos - used just one red one from the garden - and decided it wasn't hot enough, so we added hot sauce for serving. But the sauce was well balanced.

This is the beer we used in the sauce. I'm not a beer drinker, but I liked it. DH is a fan of IPAs and he liked it, too.

Dinner tonight. I decided at the last minute to make a pan sauce with spicy mustard and mayo.
