Ever since we visited Glenn's daughter and her family in Lexington last month and enjoyed a meal of chile rellenos from one of their local restaurants. Omigosh! I haven't had any that good since I lived in the DC (Washington, that is) area at a wonderful mom-and-pop place. I could've crawled onto my plate and licked it clean.

Okay, still craving this dish so...

I spoke to my good friend, Google, and discovered a recipe form an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives that was in Los Angeles.

Since the deer seem to have seen fit to devastate what garden we had, there were a few (quite large) banana peppers and a few ruby-red roma tomatoes, so I decided to make the chili rellenos recipe.

A bit labor intensive, but fabulous. Didn't have any queso fresco so substituted pepper-jack, which was yummy. The sauce was wonderful and I think that was largely because it was made from tomatoes that were picked minutes before they sacrificed themselves to the pan. We were little piggies and devoured all 8 peppers. Iced tea washed it down. No need for anything else or dessert.

Wow, great sounding dinners all around this evening, as usual.

Joey...your mushroom swiss burger looks sooo good!

James....good to see you. I'd love to have a wood fired pizza oven but for now, I'll live vicariously through yours. Looks wonderful!

KatieH, I've never made individual chiles rellenos before, only the casserole version. I looked at the link you provided and someday....I'm gonna do it! I love them in a good Mexican restaurant. The recipe you posted sounds good.

This evening's dinner was a grilled tomato and swiss on rye, with a small green salad on the side. I need to use up those beautiful ripe slicing tomatoes I got from the farm stand yesterday.

Happy 23rd, Kgirl and DH of Kgirl! So sad that your plans fell apart, but your dinner looks good, as does everyone else's!

We just snacked on the maple pulled ham, and bean dip.

They're separate. Yes, mixed together it does sound disgusting...

I'll stick a comma in.
