We had some wonderful organic hot dogs on whole wheat pita.

Almost had a disaster making this dish. After slicing the steak, onions and adding some garlic, oil and Worcestershire, I thought thyme would be a good addition. So I opened the bottle to shake some into the mixing bowl. Unfortunately, the thyme doesn't have a shaker top so I dumped about 1/4 cup of thyme into the bowl! Brain dead!

I scooped and swiped as much as I could out of the bowl then actually rinsed some of the meat to get rid of more. I guess I got out enough because the dish was pretty good. Our grandson liked it.

Getting here late, but we had homemade pesto with penne and grape tomatoes on the side. I never make pesto on a Monday, but dc is sick and requested it so of course I wanted to comply.

It worked well for Meat Free Monday, even though dc also requested Wendy's at lunch and I completely forgot about Meat Free Monday! Sorry Sir Paul, at least I remembered for dinner

I'm a little confused Stormy. The code doesn't compute. Why don't you ever make pesto on a Monday and who is Sir Paul and why his he in charge?

Kay, I suspect she's referring to Paul McCartney, a vegetarian who advocated for Meatless Mondays. As far as not making pesto on Monday, no clue.

Leftovers tonight. Curried chicken salad made with the last of a chicken I smoked a few days ago. My lettuce, arugula and mustard greens went bitter in the heat so it was on a bed of kale, chard and perpetual spinach, sprinkled with blueberries, huckleberries, strawberries and lemon thyme flowers.

(I had to look up rollmop, lol.)

Creole tasso and crawfish chowder. It was excellent! Had the obvious 2 ingredients plus bacon, onions, carrots, celery, green and red peppers, garlic, corn, and, of course, potatoes. Took less than an hour to make, including the lots of chopping time, and tasted like something that had cooked for hours. You could leave out the crawfish or sub crab or shrimp and it would be just as good. Definitely a make again for us.
