Wow! Hope you didn't serve too many sides then..lol! The last time I ate that much was when I was a teenager. My mom said I ate her out of the house..lol!
I can still eat the 1.25 kg T-bone at our Local Steakhouse with all the sides but I have to starve all day first.

I did a 9lb chicken for Ken's birthday dinner, it made for some nice leftovers too. Nothing nicer than roast chicken leftovers. MMMMMM! I'm envying you Andy. I read that chimichito recipe and I just wanted to add that I make something very similar with leftover chicken, but I add in a blob of cream cheese to the mixture. It makes everything nice and smooth.

I'm still working on coffee from breakfast. I'm working an evening shift tonight and I'll end up eating at work. I think Ken is on his own tonight as Madeleine is off to her friends for dinner and a sleepover, and Kate is still in France. I made spaghetti last night so likely he will eat that. My dinner will be roast beef and the works. Yummy.

I just had a huge portion of the jambalaya I made yesterday. Two or three more sittings like that and I'll be though with it... I'm bustin' a bead here. I don't remember it being that spicy yesterday, lol.
Tonight, if I'm hungry, will be a couple grilled hot dogs and some potato salad that I like from the town store. I may never make potato salad again.

Shawarma with shish taouk chicken. Couldn't get the right bread so, I will have to go with Naan. White bean with lemon and garlic salad. And will do up some Lebanese garlic sauce, thanks to a poster last week for the inspiration.

DS and his girl are coming for dinner so I won't experiment on them. New menu is baked chicken with stuffing and green beans.

Just to clarify, I didn't make the tacos last night--these will be fresh!

For dessert we will be having strawberry shortcake.
