WOW! That's some meal. I think I might eat just a tad toooo much if I were there!

Browned chicken then braised in white wine, tomatoes, kalamata olives, rosemary, and capers. Served atop spaghetti noodles. There's lots of broth for the spaghetti to swim in

**Edited to say - how could I forget the garlic???

I'm back in FL, DH is still in MX so I just made a sandwich on some yummy onion rye bread from Whole Foods with cucumber, chicken, red onion, leafy green lettuce, harvarti & mayo with some Italianing seasoning herbs & salt & pepper. It hit the spot. For dessert, I am going to have a brownie & a glass of skim milk. Milk tastes so much better in the States, boxed milk just doesn't cut it.

We had planned on having leftovers from last night, but son-in-law brought over 2 each grilled burgers, Johnsonville cheese brats, and buns to go with. We have some bacon left from breakfast, so I believe I'll have a bacon cheese burger tonight, a cheese brat for lunch, and leftover pork roast, potatoes and fresh asparagus tomorrow night.
How does that sound for a plan?
We get by with a little help from our friends

Yeah. Ours changed, too. Instead, I pounded two chicken breasts; smeared them with minced garlic, salt and pepper. Layered prosciutto slices and thinly sliced baby Swiss cheese. Rolled up and browned in olive oil. Only thing I should've added is some minced basil. Didn't think of that until we were scarfing them down. Oh, well. Next time.

congrats to your boy, vb!!!! 30% is a nice step up.

tonight, i grilled chicken legs, an angus london broil, and emeril's essence shrimp.

some of the chicken legs were brushed with kraft bbq sauce, others with lawry's louisiana red pepper marinade. both were good.

the angus london broil was simply rubbed with maggi liquid seasoning and black pepper. grilled to bloody rare. yum. tssssiiip.

the shrimp were split and deveined, the shells left on, and they were tossed with evoo and emeril's original essence. i grilled them over the searing burner in a "grill wok" for just a coupla minutes. they were delicious.
