Monday 7-9-18... what's on the menu?

I went to Kroger to pick up some prescriptions (getting old means lots of prescriptions).

While there, I found some nice lamb chops in the manager's special section of the meat department. I also bought some cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Bonus, they had some fresh summer strawberries that smelled really sweet.

So, I am making some caprese toothpicks, cherry tomato, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil from my garden for an appetizer.

Then, grilled lamb chops.

Followed by fresh strawberries with absolutely nothing added. I ate one the minute I got home, and it was heavenly good. No powdered sugar, no whipped cream. These berries are that good.

What's cooking at your house?

If you decided that daily forays to Kroger are getting older than you are, you might want to consider getting your 'scrips "synced". Every pharmacy has their own name for their program, but they all pretty much do this: Align My Refills. Himself has far too many that require monthly refills (I'm on two, each of them on 3-month order - I rarely go to the pharmacy), so I've tried getting him to sync his. He says he'd rather go get them when they each come due. I think he uses that as an excuse to get out of the house. Good!


Oh, dinner. We're doing breakfast: scrambled eggs with shallot and mushroom, sweet apple chicken sausages, and tater tot "crowns" waffles. Just waiting on those tasty little dots of spuds to defrost...

Fresh swordfish steaks on the grill, baked potatoes, nuked asparagus. Originally planned to grill the 'gus, but they were pretty fragile, so into the microwave they went.

TJ's orange chicken with added veggies over rice.

CG, his Dr. could write his Rx for three months at a time rather than one month even though they are not mail order.

I steamed a couple of huge artichokes early this afternoon. I let one cool way down before plating it, and melted a little garlic lemon butter for dipping. Chilled watermelon and cherries for a side. I'll have the other artichoke tomorrow.

I had thought about stuffing the artichokes, but wasn't up to the extra work involved today - delicious as they are that way!
