I wanted to do something easy. So I made Cobb salads with store-bought rotisserie chicken, bacon, avocado, tomato, egg and blue cheese. And I made a tomato vinaigrette using balsamic vinegar, V-8 juice, olive oil, and italian seasoning.

Flourgirl, I love Cobb salad, and I really like your idea for the dressing!

I took out 2 boneless chickenbreasts this morning to defrost but wasn't sure what to do with them. Then I saw a post by Mama in the 'Where did your latest cooking inspiration come from" thread.

I think I'm going to pound em flat, make a coating with bread crumbs, fresh oregano, parsley, salt, pepper, lemon zest, and garlic. Do the flour/egg/breading dip and fry them in some EVOO. Then serve them over pasta with sauce and some shreadded Asiago, Parmesian cheese, and oregano on top.

Here's a pic. It turned out really good.

Yes I have tried it. It's a variation of Bourbon and milk.. That used to be quite a popular drink, in some areas it still is..

I went out to dinner with friends tonight - had a wonderful paella.

Well, the roast beef never happened, in any form so we had breakfast instead - pancakes, hashbrowns, poached eggs (the guys, not me, noooooooooo way!), and bacon. Can't wait for a piece of chocolate tart.....or maybe pear. Maybe I should just have a piece of each .

Now you can sleep in tomorrow.

Buck and I had to go to "election school" this afternoon and I spent the greater part of the day finishing a window treatment for a customer. Good thing there's almost a whole chicken and some potatoes left from Sunday, which was awesome. Will warm those up and have some orange (cake mix) cookies for dessert I made early this morning.
