I am working on a pot roast over mashed potatoes, with a side of sautéed spinach.

I haven't had a CA Kitchen pizza since they stopped going on sale here a few years ago... I miss them. IMO best frozen pizza you can get for five bucks, but I'm partial to thin crust. I liked their margherite.

I bought some frozen sole fillets. I used this recipe: Baked Sole Almondine | a scrumptious life. I wanted to bake them, since the package came with instructions for baking and I didn't want to bother defrosting them. baked them at 400, instead of 350, to make up for the fact that they started out frozen. It was quite good. The sauce was a bit thin, but thickened as it cooled. Maybe next time I won't add all the butter before it goes in the oven, but add some cold butter when it's ready to serve.

I served it with potatoes and cole slaw. I tried Addie's suggestion of adding radishes. Unfortunately, as Cave76 mentioned, they were wimpy. no pizzazz. I'm glad I added a bit of sliced red onion.

We ended up with bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches on the liddle griddle.

Dinner got changed. So what else is new? SIL stopped by to rescue us from some of the Never-ending Vat of Minestrone and we got to talking. And talking. I ended up making one of our quick favorites ~ a fry pan full of onions, potatoes, and hot dog chunks. Wishing my icon was working...

We had grilled rib eye steaks, baked potatoes with the trimmings, asparagus for me and cauliflower for DH, there is angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream for dessert. ;)

Oh, such yummy sounding dinners. Taxy, I copied your sole almondine recipe you posted.

I had planned on fish tacos, but didn't get to the store for cabbage. I ended up with an artichoke again, and a small salad. I never get tired of artichokes.

Rock, looks fantastic!

I made pan-seared pork chops with a spicy maple glaze, baked potatoes, and a green salad.
