Looks very tasty and sounds nutritious; only thing I can think of that might be added is some sort of red peppers (Mancini makes some nice ones). I'm having 2 six ounce beefburgers fried in butter , 3 1/2 minutes on each side, on a toasted sesame bun with sliced tomato and a mayonnaise-horseradish-chopped onion-basil-thyme-diced garlic topping, a garlic pickle and a side of pickled beet salad.

Thank you bill.

Your dinner sounds good also. Your meat must be very lean? I get 85 - 90% lean and I never use fat to fry.

I like my burgers well browned on the outside and reddish pink on the inside. They're fried in a screaming hot dutch oven under one of those Lodge griddle weights. Most of the fat sortq burns up.

Well I made mashed potatoes and then sauteed some onion, tossed in the sliced flank steak and added a can of gravy. Hmmmm beef, onion, and gravy over smashed potatoes with salad on the side.

rocklobster... YUM! You can't go wrong with that dinner!

I'm making Mark a big vegie salad with sliced chicken on top and shredded cheese. I think I'll give him italian dressing and a roll with butter.

I'm not sure what I'm going to have. I have a portabella to use. I was thinking of combining diced chicken with vegies, shredded cheese and breakcrumbs and using that as a stuffing for the mushroom halves and bake in the oven. I'm just now thinking this, so it might have to get put off until tomorrow.. .maybe for lunch. I think I'll just have a chicken salad wrap with tater-tots.

As I opened up the cupboard I realized that I don't make as much rice when the weather warms up some. That's weird.
After deglazing with a little vermouth and then chicken broth, I was reaching for the heavy cream when I saw the last of the coconut milk... It added a nice twist to an old standby.

Ahhhh THAT is my favorite show on the foot network!! It amazes me what they come up with!

I would have made a sausage pie. I think your ingredients would have made a yummy pie.

Tonight we had a roasted chicken that I picked from Costco, garlic mashed potatoes, and roasted asparagus.
