Crab, roasted asparagus, mushroom, onion frittata with a side salad. A bit of purchased cheesecake for dessert.

While the frittata was baking, I made red beans and Andouille for tomorrow night, Paul Prudhomme's recipe. Used the pressure cooker, getting a bit more comfortable with it. Just has to finish cooking the Andouille tomorrow, make the rice, maybe some cornbread.

After all the talk about stuffed peppers, I put some from the freezer into the toaster oven for dinner. I also made rice, seasoned with a cube of frozen tomato paste I also made last summer and a teaspoon of Penzey's Sandwich Sprinkle. It was pretty good. DH loved it.

Sounds creative spidermite, and yes, PICS! We all love pics.

Pineapple aioli sounds good. Try it again...maybe the pineapple needed to be drained and pressed dry...?

Well I ended up adding more pineapple to the rice, and I decided there was enough garlic present in the rice to forego the garlic toss with my fries..All in all the carrots really added a great dimension to the rice. I am actually pretty satisfied with it overall. For a very on the fly/limited ingredient dinner.

We stopped at Perkins for supper. We miss Perkins (and Bob Evans) so we stop at one or the other when we have the chance. Himself had a patty melt (Loverly's must have looked good to him last night) with fries, I had a turkey dinner with stuffing, steamed broccoli and grilled asparagus. We both were members of the Clean Plate Club. :D
