Dinners a Deux: Tuesday March 11 2014

Whether it is just for today, enough for today and another meal, reconnoiter a make-over with yesterday's dinner or plating up enough for everyone's dinner plate, Today is a day for sharing.

Today we are having grilled top sirloin, grilled and sliced. I bought a pretty good size steak yesterday, Couldn't tell the difference between their grass fed tenderloin the ribeyes. No discernible fat for miles. I chose sirloin as I Like its flavor best and I chose enough for sharing. Thick slices of planked grilled potato alongside with garlic and fresh rosemary and sweet potato halves 'nuked then finish on the grill. Romaine salad with a few baby tomatoes, olives, sliced cukes and a Springy type vinaigrette ( the same as my winter vinaigrette, with lemon, grated parm and just bought fresh garlic. That'll put hair on her chest or make her smile or something. New carton of Breyer's chocolate Ice Cream. Wait, that'll put a smile on her face.

She teaches/leads a senior citizen low impact exercise group mid week afternoons. I walked her dog over to my house, so the dog got her afternoon exercise already and we'll be set to go. Her class is easy, it's chasing everyone home as they have all day and want to stay after and talk. I'm all set to light the coals whenever.

Taco Tuesday here. I am using turkey meat (finally getting used to a very low-fat diet) and made corn tortillas this morning for the first time! I usually get them from a local market, but it is much nicer making them!

I will also whip up some guacamole as well.

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

Deux is right, as basically I am making two dinners.
I took out some of the spaghetti sauce to thaw to put on some pasta with asparagus on the side. Then I decided to take out some pork loins, also. I'll do a picatta type thing with those.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I put a little rump roast and stuff in the CP. It may end up being Taco Tuesday here too, as the roast probably won't be ready when we get hungry.

My mom is here and is taking me out to dinner. I think we'll go to our local Mexican place. I like their salsa and guacamole. I'm planning to get chicken fajitas; I can never eat all of it, so DH will have the leftovers when he gets home. He's working late tonight.

Hope you all are not nauseated by my routine.

For breakfast I eat the leftovers from the day before. In this case the spaghetti & meatballs. A new dish is usually made for lunch. Sometimes I eat the 2nd portion for supper or if I'm a good girl it will be tomorrows breakfast.

In actual fact, today was out around lunch time so went to a St Hubert BBQ Chicken and ate too much - wings, fries, coleslaw and wine. Supper tonight will probably be popcorn (which would be really healthy IF I don't add the butter... which, of course, I will!!)

One of the reasons I eat "hearty meals" early in the day is it helps me from putting on weight! Can't always stick to this routine but I try.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

I had to go pick up my laptops from the computer repair store where the new one was getting the data transferred from the old one and the old one was getting a hard drive repair. A couple doors down is our favorite local Italian restaurant. I went there first and ordered a calzone, a pizza and salad to go. Picked up the 'puters then picked up the food. It was wonderful!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
