I had made this Short Ribs with Tagliatelle Recipe : Giada De Laurentiis : Food Network before and froze half of it for tonight's dinner.

Instead of short ribs, I used chuck roast.

We had chimichuri marinated chicken thighs, spicy peanut jicama salad & poblanos stuffed with roasted vegetable risotto & topped with a chipotle cream sauce. For dessert mango & pineapple pieces drizzled with peach juice & Barcardi Anejo.

I was going to fry chicken, but I got too hungry before the chicken thawed. I heated up leftover beef stroganoff and green beans.

I had some left over chicken breast so I shredded that up and heated it up in a skillet with some olive oil. Baked a spaghetti squash and made some low fat alfredo sauce to go over that and the shredded chicken. On the side I sauteed some green beans with minced garlic & onion and diced up a few pieces of bacon to go on top. It was yummy!

Salmon tacos, I wish I would have been there! I could have had that! Last weekend, I purchased some nice salmon fillets and have all the other ingredients on hand... tomato, lettuce, cheese, salsa, black olives, tortillas, sour cream and green onion. Do you have a recipe? How did you cook your salmon? I like to bake mine in the oven first, then assemble the taco.

Mark doesn't care for fish tacos, so that is a treat for myself.

JohnL... I hope you feel better soon. Cheese always makes me feel better!

Andy... That looks like a delicious recipe. Giada has some wonderful recipes! Now, you can look forward to a good dinner tonight, too!

Clienta... Do you have a recipe for your chicken thighs? They sound devine!.... so does the mango/pineapple dessert drizzled with peach juice and Bacardi.... I would love a recipe for that also!!

Patty... Beef Stroganoff is a comfort food to me. And, instead of waiting, I can see why you had that instead. I love to have those kind of meals on the weekend, especially Saturday night.

getoutamykitchen... MMmm! Chicken alfredo (healthy) over spaghetti squash with green beans/bacon... that really sounds like a tasty meal! I love spaghetti squash. I like that with sauces or just butter, salt-n-pepper and garlic bread.
