It is frickin freezing in L.A. this evening so I'm going to fire up the grill and do some carne asada. The frozen package of skirt steak from Costco has been sitting on the kitchen counter defrosting most of the day. Simple S&P and they'll be tossed on the grill. My wife has all the sides ready already.
I'm still at work but I can already smell the smoke!

Tofu (Marinated in my secret oriental marinate), baby spinach, baby rocket, enoki mushrooms, button mushrooms, bean sprouts, spanish onion, garlic & ginger. One fantastic lunch.

I made whole grain, wheat fettuccine and served it with leftover chicken cacciatore. I enjoyed it more than DH did. He isn't crazy about mushrooms or dark meat. All the sauce seemed to be thick with dark meat and 'shrooms. I heated some pasta sauce out of a jar and picked out all the pieces of white meat for him.

I used 200 grams of flour to make the pasta. I usually boil about 250 gr of dry pasta for the two of us. Whoa, that seemed to make a fair bit more. I'll try 175 grams next time.

Oh yeah, we had red and green coleslaw with that. I know it doesn't really go, but I really wanted some raw veg and I'm out of lettuce.

I ended up with a 3 pound pkg of Rotisserie Chicken breast, TurboTax and a clamshell of grape tomatoes. I only went in for the TurboTax.
