My brother and SIL are suppose to host a party tonight (no word of it yet) since she got the baby doll in her slice of bread last Sunday (which we call "rosca de reyes") "Three Magic Kings' bread". It's a tradition we have not been keeping up so I doubt my SIL will cook anything, much rather invite us over. Heehee

I might just cook some enchilada lasagna from "Cooking for the Rushed" cookbook.

Still have more than enough Christmas candy to take care of the dessert part of the meal. Just about to finish a bag of M&Ms dark. They are really, really good.

We'll be trying a recipe from the the new Gourmet Cookbook our daughter gave us for Christmas (along with The Bon Appetit Cookbook). It's chicken divan...an oldie that we haven't had in ages.

Tonight's dinner was quick but good. Took some "turkey chops" (like turkey cutlets but thicker), dredged them in some seasoned flour & sauteed them in some extra-virgin olive oil. Then squeezed half a lemon over them.

Served them with a vegetable "medley" of what I had on hand. Boiled up some little gold & all-blue fingerling potatoes & baby carrots, then added in some adorable TINY baby zucchini (like little-finger size) & quarter-size green & yellow pattypan squash. Drained & finished off with half a bag of baby spinach leaves stirred in until wilted. Sliced up the potatoes & tossed all the vegetables together with several tablespoons of butter & a good sprinkling of McCormacks' Montreal Chicken Grill Seasoning.

Absolutely delicious!

luv's, your idea about chili got me in the mood for it, so I made a pot of chili, and then stuffed it into buritos and topped them with mexican cheese and jalapenos, and some spicy rice.

Stuffed and happy, battered and deep fried calamari strips, cole slaw, french fries, beans and rice then hot peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream..YUMMMMMy..Best thing about it? I didn't have to cook it, daughter, Olivia and I went out to dinner Little livie had her first slaw, calamari and beans..Plus half of the peach cobbler That baby sure can eat...She also entertained evryone in the place, and we got umpteen questions about the bandage on her forehead..Little thing will be 1 on the 28th of Jan, and has been walking for 2 months. So thursday night she decided to see how fast she could run and she and the corner of the wall made friends A trip to the er now has her with no stitches as they used the seal up liquid bandage on her, but she got quite a whack..And I thought my grandsons were helter skelter Well all is well and she is just fine, and off and running again..

Well lemme see, we're in the far western part of Kentucky. Do you think you can get here soon? The M&Ms are about gone. However, Buck's mom lives in Allentown, not terribly far from you. Perhaps she could fence some dark chocolate M&Ms for us.

As for the chicken pot pie recipe, I think I would violate the copyright rules if I posted it. Besides it's several pages long. As with anything to do with Cook's Illustrated, which is where the The Best Recipe came from, it's very thorough. Read that to mean: takes some time to prepare. Very good, though.

Our lunch was phenomenal. One of the best places we've eaten at in recent months. Awesome food, atmosphere and service. We will definitely go back for dinner. We like to try a restaurant out first for lunch to see if it would stand up to dinner. This one would not only stand up for dinner, it would applaud itself and give the "wave." Really, really great.

After our lunch, which was later in the afternoon, we didn't even have room for chicken pot pie for dinner. Instead, we had leftover French onion soup from earlier in the week. Filled in the cracks and satisfied us quite adequately.

Wonderful "date" day! I always look forward to our dates together even after over 30 years together.
