Happy anniversary Bucky!!

Our dinner: Boneless/skinless chicken breasts (oiled and heavily seasoned, pan seared in cast iron pan till nicely browned then pan placed in preheated oven (425F) and baked for 25 minutes). Sides were mini fusilli topped with tomato sauce (EVOO, red wine, dry spices, oregano, ground red pepper flakes, sea salt, ground pepper and fresh basil) and fresh grated romano and parmesan cheeses, and salad (red and green butter lettuce, vine tomato, mushroom, black olives, shredded cheddar, roasted seasoned sliced almonds, McCormick Salad Supreme Perfect Pinch toppings) with Italian dressing.

Shoot, lost my post... Hope I'm not posting twice.

Thank you.
And very nice, thanks for asking. I think I'm finally nailing down my garlic parm wings. Now I just need to work on my hot ones. Maybe try some ghost peppers or something.

Cold beer and sleep sounds good. Not sure about the pupas.

I don't know what to call what I just made--I took about 450 g. of rotini, cooked that in boiling water with a bit of EVOO, dried basil, marjoram. While that was cooking, I steamed about 7-8 shrimp on top of the noodles--drained them. But in the meantime, I took the last 2 T of the roasted tomato paste, diced about 15 romas (a little bigger than an XLg egg), tossed those together with fresh preshed garlic, grated onion, 1 small jalapeno, chopped fine, fresh basil, marjoram, oregano, a few rosemary leaves, S&P, a splash of olive oil, kosher salt (a dash) and freshly ground pepper, about 2 T of finely grated Asaigo cheese. Drained the pasta, tossed the pasta and the steamed shrimp into the ingredients together, added the juice of one fresh lemon wedge and then I added about 1/2 tsp lime-infused olive oil, S&P to taste, hot red pepper flakes,about 1 tsp of capers, and topped it with more grated Asaigo cheese, fresh chopped herbs, and 2 reserved shrimp. OMG, am I glad that I have leftovers for tomorrow's lunch. I have a couple of pics, but I'm recharging the batteries for my digital camera and can't share, except to say, darned nice combo of flavors, even though the dish didn't include any FRESH eggs. I didn't think to measure anything--it was throw-together, but it was REALLY tasty. And for a fast, throw together dish using stuff in the freezer, pantry, and the spices/herbs on hand...oh, I sprinkled just a bit of white truffle salt on top and another little drizzle of the lime-infused olive oil on top of the additional grated asaigo cheese. I ate it warm-not hot. hmm....maybe I'll just call it "too tired to cook" pasta.

Fried rice with bacon, ribs, leftover tortellini, and some green salad. I think we have NEARLY cleaned out the fridge now.
