Sounds lovely Molly

I just found out our friends are still sick (he got it a couple weeks ago and shared it with her and Kaity), so we will be eating at home tonight. We will have little smokies and mock macaroni and cheese (cauliflower and cheese), and possibly another vegetable.

4 cheese rising crust pizza doctored with anchovies, mushrooms, black olives, and jalapeno peppers, with extra mozzarella and provolone cheese to hold all that shtuff on there. Haven't decided between opening a nice red wine or just cracking a Stella Artois.

Nice looking pics!

I had some ground lamb and made meat balls with yogurt, egg, bread crumbs, mint, oregano and parsley. I browned them off in the oven, set them aside and cooked up some tomatoes, bell pepper, mushrooms and celery till tender, and threw in the lamb meat balls, 1 cup of Orzo and 2 cups of boiling chicken broth to the mix. After being covered and simmered for 30 minutes it was ready to serve with fresh chopped mint on the top.
I always use this to season my Greek cooking......good stuff!

Kayelle...that sounds delicious! I'm going to have to get some Cavender's. Good tip. Remember that Greek Isle you and I and Kathleen and some other DCers vacationed at? (do I dare mention Cabana Boy lol). Quite an adventure! That was was hilarious.

I would love to hear about this!

Nice meals, all!

We returned to our new fave Italian restaurant for more Seafood Alfredo Bruschetta, and split the lasagna, salad and bread again. So good, and I couldn't imagine eating a whole portion without splitting.
