Sauteed some tilapia filets, deglazed with white wine. Couscous and brussels sprouts (my husband's favorite veggie).

we had asian, but not sushi or thai as i'd expected. just plain old take out chinese. we order a boatload for just the 3 of us, though, sharing everything.

shrimp rolls, wontaugh soup (just joshing lawn guylanders), boneless bbq spare ribs, bean curd and mixed chinese veggies, shredded szechuan beef, chicken and broccoli in garlic sauce, and kung po chicken.

My Hoppin John is similar but with the addition of ham and some other seasonings. It's a traditional New Years Day/good luck dish.

I grilled a nice ribeye steak approx 1 3/4" thick, rubbed down with olive oil and Montreal steak seasoning, grilled 3 mins per side, topped with sauteed onions, mushrooms and roasted mixed peppers. Side was basmatti rice cooked in chicken stock, flavored with garlic powder and a bit of yellow curry powder.
