Happy anniversary!

We're having baked ziti (I add sliced pepperoni to mine), with ricotta and topped with mozzarella. Garlic toast for dipping into the sauce and a green salad on the side.

I'm also making a "French" chicken salad for lunches the rest of the week. It's creamy and crunchy at the same time, made with poached chicken breast, mayo, some plain yogurt, cubed swiss cheese, diced apples and sliced endive.

Congratulations! Best wishes for many more happy years together.

Our meal tonight is meatless. We'll be enjoying leek quiche and French onion soup. Dessert will be mini chocolate cupcakes with mint-chocolate Hershey kisses on top.

Yesterday, I cooked a 3.5-lb. pork shoulder in the crockpot with about 2 cups of homemade tomatillo sauce from the freezer. Tonight we're having pork chile verde quesadillas with corn tortillas, Monterey jack cheese, sour cream, guacamole, chopped romas and romaine, and Spanish rice on the side.

Well, I think I am finally over my flu, which the doctor said was complicated by a horendous asthma attack. DH has been pinch hitting as cook and has done a great job the last 3 days, but I am armed with a new inhaler and ready to create again!

Sounds like we are both going meatless and "leeky"!

We are having Mac and Cheese with Leeks and Gorgonzola. I actually do it my own way, but this is fairly close. I am using Radiatore pasta instead of penne, just 'cause I feel like it. I am going meatless for my sake but one border prefers meat to anything else so I will warm a leftover pork chop for him. I will serve a salad with raspberry balsamic vinigrette and some fresh baked buns.

We're having Seafood Minestrone. The recipe was posted here by someone quite awhile ago. Wish I could remember who it was. I would PM him or her about how much we have enjoyed this soup. We'll have a salad and store bought artisan bread.

I guess it will be a ribeye on the grill, but probably not for a couple hours (not until it thaws ). Also some asparagus I had frozen and keep forgetting about. Maybe my loaf of bread will be done by then, too. I've been meaning to try cooking (toasting?) a slice of bread in some olive oil and garlic in a fry pan..... I think I saw Emeril do it once. Oh, and a baked potato done on the grill.

Happy anniversary kitchenelf
but what did you mean you had "reservations" about it?
