The Reuben thread has inspired me to make do with an old standby.

I had someone make a "Reuben" for me once with sliced kielbasa. It was very good.

So it's about 1/3 kielbasa sliced into equal lengthwise slices, Swiss cheese, Thousand Island dressing with horseradish, and sauerkraut.

For bread, I'm using two smaller tortillas. I'll brown the slices of kielbasa, assemble the sandwiches and toast like a quesadilla.

Unconventional, I know, but the bread I have is way too small for this.

Snapped the ends off of a pound of asparagus, cut it in half, and put on the bottom of a small casserole. Boiled up some orzo pasta to half done, and added that. Then I boned half the chicken, sliced and added that. I made a med. thick white sauce (butter, flour, milk), added some Sherry, brown mustard, mayo and curry powder, and spread it over the whole thing. Topped it with sliced almonds and sprinkled with paprika. How does that sound?

Report to follow after dinner.
Sounds like a winner to me, KL!

I've never seen asparagus for 99 cents a pound. I'd grab some very quick. I thought I was doing good getting it for $2.49.

I bought a couple of small steaks and had baked potato and salad. We will have fresh strawberries with a tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream and maybe a tiny cookie for dessert.

DH and I both thought this was very tasty, so now I have to really write it down so we can have it again. I cooked it too long however, as the asparagus wasn't crisp tender like we like. I might add some grated Gruyere cheese to the white sauce mixture next time.

licia, we can get it as a "leader" from Von's market early in the year like this.....I bought 7 lbs of it. There's so much you can do with it.
I see crab and asparagus soup on the menu soon.

Great pictures Pacanis and MsM
