Dinner and a movie tonight: grocery fish department fresh fried haddock, Ore-Ida waffle fries, and Green Giant Niblets canned corn. Heated up a leftover biscuit from last night. Added a few grape tomatoes for color. Voila!

I picked up a couple of sandwich combos for my wife and son yesterday for lunch from a deli that specializes in unique sandwiches and bagels. I guess I'm getting cheap in my old age because I thought $9 each for a couple of slices of roast beef and cheese on a roll with a pickle spear and a small handful of chips was a rip off.

So, one my way into work I stopped at a great little inexpensive deli and bought a hero roll, ($1), a half pound of Boar's Head roast beef ($4), a half pound of Boar's head American cheese ($2.50), a whole deli pickle ($1), and a medium bag of chips ($2).

For $1.50 more, I had a huge combo that I could barely finish, and I still have more than 1/4 lb of cheese and some chips left that my son scarfed down as soon as I got home.

I'm cheap, but well fed.

It looks muy delicioso

I made a take on this Lebanese chicken braised with lemon and olives: https://www.maureenabood.com/braised...es-and-smiles/

I replaced the seasonings with za'atar and Aleppo pepper and used capers instead of olives. I served it with the orzo and rice pilaf we've been enjoying so much, and a green salad. Oh, and a piece of crispy chicken skin Dessert was a chocolate from the box of handmade chocolates I traded for with a jar of honey. So good.

Oh boy! That's my kind of recipe GG! I'll be making it very soon.

Great trade with the honey for those gorgeous handmade chocolates. Thanks to your bees you got a great deal. Good job boys!

Just FYI, most of the bees are girls The worker bees - tens of thousands of them - and the queen, of course, are all female. There are only a couple hundred drones (male bees) during the time when the queen does her mating flight. Then, their usefulness is over and the girls throw them out of the hive. It's a pretty violent society
