My first try at fried rice:
Brown rice
Shrimp
Egg
Green onion
Bacon
Pork roast (leftover)
Mushrooms
Safflower oil

Next time I'll add more veggies! Click image for larger version

I love fried rice. Celery gives it a nice crunch

We are continuing to celebrate Birthday Week so today I picked up a couple of steaks and some sea scallops to be grilled. I'm going to make chimichurri sauce for the steak and lemon aioli for the scallops. I have peas in the garden that need to be picked, so I'll make a pea-couscous-lemon-mint salad, too. Ice cream for dessert.

I love fried rice too. Also add frozen peas and sometimes pineapple chunks.

Probably salads tonight here.

GG, you need to stretch Birthday Week into Birthday Month. Much more efficient!

Can't make up my mind...

...'cuz I probably lost my mind. Three plans. At least two of them can be shuffled to other meals within the next half-week or so.
1) Mediterranean Tuna Salad in naan bread with a side salad
2) Spaghetti with Mascarpone, Meyer Lemon, Spinach, and Hazelnuts with a side salad.
3) 20 Minute Cherry Tomato and Basil Pasta with a side salad.

One thing is sure: we're having side salads!

I'm doing wings on the grill also Andy. Ours will be with Goya Mojo mixed with Sriracha. Glorified green salads for the side.

First of our heirloom tomatoes, the purple ones. I forgot the name. Burrata cheese, fresh basil, and a reduced balsamic syrup drizzle.


Cantelope cubes and prosciutto


And my foie gras torchon. OMG, it was so good, but so rich. It has started to melt just being out at room temp. A celery, parsley, basil salad and a black pepper caramel. Craig is still eating on the leftover caramel.
