Sounds lovely Corazon, one of my favorite soups!

We couldn't be asked to cook, I had the left over falafel and the boy had his comfort food, beans on toast. I also made some vegan fudge brownies today and we had those for dessert. First time I made vegan brownies and they came out pretty dang good!

Rubbing down the chicken with my rub then cooking in the rotisserie. Simple salad of baby romaine, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, cucumbers, and almonds with my favorite Dijon vinaigrette dressing.

I'll grill some wheat baguette into croutons. Edited to say I'll put a slice of grilled halloumi on the baguette slice.

I usually do my own thing when I cook, I'll see something and try to do it without a recipe or will glance at a recipe and then just take off..But, today I decided to try Crispy roast chicken and potatoes from Cooks Country mag. It says you will get a brown crispy chicken and potatoes by following the directions! Since I had to do 3 whole chickens it was some work... There are about 5 steps to it so I'm praying it turns out right... So far it looks great and I really interested to see if cooking it frist with a wing up then the other before turning breast up makes a difference..If this turns out lousy, oh dear, I might be forced to write a "letter" so on that note, along with chicken and potatoes and baby carrots, there will be artichokes, green salad with roasted pears and blue cheese, homemade rolls, and dessert is just banana cream pie. These babies better be crispy!!!

kadesma with fingers crossed...

Tonight I am ordering in 2 individual Pan Pizzas with no tomatoes and double cheese and baked cinnamon sticks. I order all my pizza from a chain here known as Pizza Hut.

As far as I am concerned that have the best pizza.

I want to wish everyone a wonderful Sunday.

I made a big vat of marinara and homemade meatballs. I froze 3 big portions for use later and we had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight.

Ouch! Traditional "tax" day here in the U.S.!! Yuck. Our taxes are done.

We're having roasted Cornish hens stuffed with onion, garlic, butter, thyme, parsley, salt and pepper. They're slathered with olive oil and will have a bronze, crisp skin. Also, steamed Italian green beans. Not sure what else.

Been a lazy day. We are just takin' it easy!

I blackened some tilapia, and made a sauce that me make at work, from sauteed shrimp, leeks, deglaze with white wine, add some cream, parm, and season with s&p. Homemade pilaf and corn for side. YUM!
