Hope all goes well to those of you in the danger of the fires. I watch it on the news and can't even imagine.

Dinner tonight will be Chix Parm, Spag with alfredo, tossed salad and a veggie. Forgot to pick up bread...oh well. Frosted brownies for dessert.

thanks for the well wishes folks.
it's smokey here but all else is up in the air.
my husband sent me two pix of the fires and it's daunting.
we'll be fine, Amy and I will keep each other in our best thoughts.

Husband is still caught in the grip of Northern Virginia traffic (compounded by our more than welcome rainstorms), so I have a pot of Zatarain's "Jambalaya" rice mix, spiced up with some sliced "al fresco" brand "Mango Chipotle Pepper" chicken sausages & some sliced frozen okra. Will serve with a big green salad.

Turkey SKillet

1tbs olive oil
1 carrot chopped
2 onions chopped
1 piece celery chopped
1 lb cubed turkey meat
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup red wine
4 teaspoons parmesan cheese, grated
1 tablespoon basil
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the veggies in the oil until they are nice and soft.
Add turkey.
Cook until no longer pink. Mix in the rest of the items and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Serve over rice or noodles.

So, I've made the turkey dinner... and it's really boring. Hardly any flavor.
Any ideas on how to spice it up before Paulie gets home??

Tacos here, too. No baseball. Just the Food Channel.

i grilled some fajita marinated chicken thighs out in the rain last night, and dw made baked spuds and steamed stringbeans.

also, i took in another plastic shopping bag stuffed with tomatoes and peppers, so i made another coupla quarts of salsa.

i'm still perfecting the recipe, but so far my ingredients are:
5 cups diced tomatoes
2 cups diced onion
4 large cloves of garlic, minced
3 jalapenos, including seeds and pith, minced
1 cup minced cubanelle pepper
1 large lime, zest, juice, and some pulp
2 tbsps chopped cilantro, including minced stems

Last night I took Rachael Rays' idea for calzone rolls. Except I used chicken instead of salami. And since Billy can't have cheese I just used a jarred pizza sauce for his.
And with that was a salad.

Mmmmmmmmm good !
