Grill and serve with Buttermilk (Ranch) dressing.

Brush it with olive oil and grill for a few minutes. Top with sliced grilled meat and the salad dressing of your choice. We often use fresh tuna. DH likes bleu cheese dressing and I like Italian.

SO was off today and we ended up doing a lot of our usual Saturday errands. We had no real lunch and I made a pile of bruscetta with basil, tomato, shallots and evoo topped with fresh mozz. That was around 5:30-6:00 PM and I'm not hungry yet so that was our dinner.

I do have room for some ice cream though.

I was too tired to think about what to cook. I was too tired to walk a block and a half to Casa Grecque. So, I phoned Tandoori Taste and ordered the house biryani, tandoori mixed grill, and some roti. I drove to pick it up. It was awesome.


Anyone know what that green sauce is called? It seemed to have cilantro, mint, hot pepper, lemon or lime juice, ...
