Took out some ground beef and am going to turn it into a Tex-Mex meatloaf and will have some french fries on the side. More brownies for dessert.

I made a delicious Pesto Pasta Salad with White Beans yesterday... It will double as lunch and dinner today!
Saute some cherry tomato, garlic, and artichoke bottoms in some olive oil. Toss with some fresh basil, heaping spoon of jarred pesto sauce, bow-tie pasta, great northern beans, and some S&P... top with some grated parm... even better day #2.

Turns out a friend is coming over for dinner, and I didn't take any animal protein out of the freezer this am! So thinking about what I can do to make a delicious dinner w/o quick-thawing anything, I've decided on Pasta Puttanesca. I have all the ingredients on hand. We can round that out with a big mixed green salad with my "famous" mustard vinaigrette, and pears and Blue Cheese for dessert.

SO's current favorite is Chinese pepper steak over white rice so we have been having that with some regularity, including tonight.
