I rubbed the steak with pepper and salt, panned fried it with some green pepper, onions, and mushrooms (I got so distracted by trying to plan the new kitchen configuration, I didn't feel like firing up the grill). And, I didn't do anything fancy re: the cantaloupe. Bah!

Had the sister-in-law over for dinner. Made cubed pork braised with mushrooms and onions in red wine vinegar and seasoned with a tiny bit of rosemary, and black and white pepper. Roasted red potatoes coated in a little olive oil and a hint of balsamic vinegar, sprinkled with a little garlic, salt and finely ground dried rosemary. Steamed fresh green beans.

I wasn't sure how the pork would turn out because I hadn't made it like this before but it sounded good in my head and the sis-in-law liked the sound of it so we went for it. It was really good. I'll definitely be making it again.

Just because something has a duck bill doesn't mean it's a platypus. It might just be a duck.

The rain has started here today after a week of sunshine. I spent several hours this afternoon finishing planting the garden (in the rain) so it felt like a comfort food kind of day and ...............that tater tot casserole thread has been calling my name for days. I had the same brand jarred Alfredo sauce( that the OP used) in the pantry. I added some green, yellow and red peppers and some corn. We are just having salad and artisan bread with it, oh and a nice glass of homemade Cabernet.
If you don't like the food, have more wine!
