Chicken tenders breaded with Panko and oven baked; broccoli in cheese sauce; and the other half of the acorn squash smothered in garlic butter.

And the EVOO was from a friend from Greece--her family owns and olive orchard.

Well, I'm certainly not cooking from scratch either. We're having leftover Chicken Tortilla Soup, that wasn't from scratch when I put it together two days ago. By the way, it's delicious.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Pan fried sea bass fillets with baby plum tomatoes, in a toasted ciabatta (spread with tartare sauce and pan juices) - as a 'sandwich' with lamb's lettuce in it!

I saved out some bacon and egg cups from last night, and nuked them with a thin slice of Cracker Barrel extra sharp cheddar. Nice!

We're reheating mashed potatoes and turkey la king from the other night.

Well, the broccoli soup will have to wait until tomorrow. I got busy doing other things and then it got too late to do all that chopping, simmering, and all. Ended up with a tuna melt on sourdough and a salad. It was good, though.
