Worth a try.

Oh no, it's all fresh Kgirl. The lobster is the last of our three day saga with four anniversary lobsters overnighted from Maine, and the king crab was picked up today to extend the lobster salad tonight.

Dawg, your tomato soup is the bomb!!

Scheduling was awkward tonight. I had a building design review meeting at 4:00 that lasted for 1 1/2 hours. DH had beef vegetable soup with a large dollop of fresh home made mac and cheese. I cut up a fresh tomato and heated that up with the mac and cheese when I got home.

So pleased you liked it, Kay! Bet it would be good with a bit of your lovely seafood too.

Lovely pics and meals, all!

I spelunked a nice vegetable soup, and some CP Italian beef for tomorrow. I have a really hard time not making more stuff, we have a lot in the freezer to use up.

Dawg, now I almost wish I would have boiled up those ugly lobster heads for the stock.
That soup recipe is a keeper with only 1 tsp. of sugar. Even the SC, who does NOT like tomato soup was sold!

Yay! It's such a simple soup, amazing how good it is.

Those lobster moms don't think their kids' heads are ugly, I figure.

I would, like you, cook and squeeze every drop of lobstery goodness out of those heads and carcasses.

Just a $7.99 Rubio's mexican restaurant "Baja steak burrito" (carne asada). They give you a small bag of chips which is nice. I cupped some mild green chiles to go with it. Delicious.

Good looking meals all around tonight. S&P, I'm guessing you dusted your broccoli with grated cheese? If not, I'm afraid your veggie has dandruff.

We had a beautiful day in the low 70's, staying warm far into the night (which starts around 4:30 here due to us being so far east in the time zone). Himself shuffled out to the grill to cook up huge shrimp while I stayed stove-side and sauteed zucchini discs and mixed up some pearl couscous with toasted and chopped pine nuts and seasoned with sumac. We had mixed greens salads to start.

Breakfast with home fries made like the diner we've been going to a lot lately for Sunday breakfast.

Since I haven't been able to move around very well for the last month or so it's pretty much been "make do meals." Last night was no exception.

We had beef strips and onions "something" over noodles and a side of steamed broccoli. Iced tea as the usual wash-down. No dessert as neither one of us was particularly hungry. Been too warm to cook any real comfort foods. Mother Nature seems stuck on summertime here.
