Barbara have you ever tried green pea guacamole?

It is not bad in a pinch.

I have heard that it is ok, but my Southern California taste buds might be a little skittish about that! Thanks, I will have to try that sometime. I believe I have seen a recipe or two for it here at DC.

Change of plans. Pork stew will have to wait. I forgot I had picked up a Tostino's frozen pizza. With some added mozzarella, it will do the trick.

I also picked up a cheesecake mix for dessert.

Not bad. Dinner and dessert for $3.

3 bucks! What a steal. (I like CA Kitchens frozen pizza, but don't tell anybody)

Change of plans hear, to
uhh, here, too.

I decided to throw some wings on the grill instead of the chorizo. I'm leaning towards butter & garlic parm.

Stir-fried rice using a link of this fabulous double-smoked sausage I found at the butcher's. I also have some strawberries that I'll toss with some spinach and toasted almonds and a dash of balsamic + olive oil to dress it up.

Found a frozen chicken pie so that's going to be it for me. Well, after I heat it up and plate it.

That should definitely work out better. The last time I threw wings on chorizo it didn't cook worth a darn.

Sounds like it's a night for plan changing. After reviewing the recipe for the pirogi lasagna, I decided I was starting too late in the day for it to be ready by dinner time so I threw some chicken and mushroom soup in the oven, threw some rice in the cooker, opened 2 cans of asparagus and had supper.

Everything you guys are having sounds great. I spent 12 hours painting our new kitchen cupboards today and finally got them done. Only about 15 more hours of work and that kitchen will look like a shiny new penny. So for dinner today it was a McDouble and small fries...yuk. Of course it's almost better than nothing. I might try to throw something in the crock pot before I head over to the house tomorrow to work some more. I have a feeling that I am going to think of this summer as the summer of the paintbrush!
