i spent the day painting doors in the lower half of the house, taking breaks to play war and spades with my boy and dw. i ended up skipping dinner to get the painting done, so i'm just picking up dinner now. a veggie salad (mixed greens, red cabbage, carrots, snap peas, onions) in ranch dressing, and scungilli fra diavolo with spaghetti and garlic breath, er, bread.

The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Kind of an odd pairing I guess, but we had chicken pot pies and artichokes. Both were delish.....


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

As today is Mardi Gras a.k.a Shrove Tuesday or "Pancake Tuesday", we had breakfast for dinner. Buttermilk pancakes, homemade sausage patties, and a fried egg .. Yummy!

Leftover tortilla soup for DH, leftover salmon linguini for me. Cheesy toast made with TJ's quatro cheese blend. DD and grandbabies went to the other grandparents for the afternoon and dinner. ;-)
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

Cilantro, yes. Avocado, no. I couldn't find any that were ripe enough on such short notice.

I also drowned the whole thing pretty liberally in Tapatio sauce.

The only hot sauce I will buy. I don't like the other ones that taste like vinegar and red pepper.

Tonight was leftovers. Leftover soup, leftover lemon/wine chicken breasts, leftover coleslaw, etc.

We had Serbian style stuffed pork loin, done on the grill; Brussels sprouts; and Sweet Potato Timbales.

Last night, it was bbq'd chicken sandwiches with a pasta salad I threw together. That had shell pasta, crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar, diced celery/carrot, mayo, Miracle Whip, salt and pepper.


A little kindness goes a long way.
