We had Italian comfort food...Spaghetti Carbonara made with angel hair pasta.

I can hear some Italians yelling " OMG you can't make Spaghetti Carbonara with angel hair pasta!!!!" Oh yes I can. My kitchen, my rules and it was spectacular.

We had a loaded green salad too.

Tried Something New

Crispy zucchini fries! They were to die for. Tonight's dinner was grilled lemon rosemary turkey cutlets with baked crispy zucchini fries. The sauce for the fries was called for a sriracha lime mayo. Since there was cayenne in the breadcrumb mixture for the zucchini fries, I used a sweet version of the sriracha. I'm not all that familiar with sriracha... mainly because it seems to come only in a large size bottle, which is too much for just me. But I found small bottles in Mrs. Green's (sort of like a Whole Foods type store). That was a good find. I got the potatoes in the oven, then made the marinade for the cutlets (olive oil, lemon and fresh chopped rosemary). When the grill was heated and the fries starting to brown, I grilled the cutlets. What a yummy meal, and the zucchini fries were super crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. And that sauce? Wonderful!

Thin cut pork steaks marinated in fig balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Then grilled. Packet potatoes and onions on the grill. Steamed broccoli and cauliflower. It was about time we had something besides hot dogs! lol!

I had a spaghetti stir-fry with basil, bacon and some vegetables. Simple, easy and quick.
