Lunch was potato pancakes with left over bolognese .

Dinner: I was going to make chicken faijitas and then realized I had pork thawing up so I made pork tacos and every one liked it.

Well, Kayelle, I didn't expect to see you back on DC until Monday! Guess you had a "light" dinner.

Steve, that is a yummy looking "thrown together" sauce. Must be nice to have mad skills.


The chicken turned out great. I was surprised that the cheese and mushrooms didn't completely slide out. I cut the pocket kinda big. Oops. Kayelle, you'll appreciate that I seasoned the chicken with Herbs de Provence. The green beans were needing some help, so I sprinkled them with 9-month aged Pecorino Romano. Oh, was that a gooood cheese. (If you enlarge the photo, you can see lots of salt crystals on the bits of cheese.) I also had green grapes that were nowhere near sweet enough for eating out-of-hand, so I sauteed them in a bit of butter and added sliced almonds just before plating. Sauteed grapes are really good with chicken.

What a bunch of good looking, drool inducing meals.

We had a salad and ABTs. It was really good.

Both Pirate and myself have had an upset tummy for a day or two. So I made a couple of cups of chicken broth with BTB and cooked some Pastina pasta in it. I sautéed in butter, a little finely diced onion to add to the flavor of the bullion. I have just enough Pastina left for just one of us, just in case.

taxy, so good to see food photos from you again. You always take such nice pictures - and the food always looks good, too.

Thank you. I seem to have recuperated from the winter illness, just in time for summer to be over.

One of The Melting Pot restaurants had that on their wine flight when we took our GD there. It was pretty good. Name is easy enough to remember.

Duck Commander was also excellent, and we'll order it again. Cracks me up it's from Duck Dynasty.

Can you say we're less than sophisticated??
If you see it on your list I would recommend the Meomi Chardonay. I bought a bottle for my wife the other day and she raved about it.
