It's been so hectic for my husband and I lately.
We totally forgot that we had a friend coming over
and then we were all to go to lunch ... we had just come back
from running an early errand and then a big breakfast out
So we wound up with take-away boxes of most of our lunch
and so dinner was a lovely salad, pizza and a starter of
Trader Joe's pastry bites, very delicious!

I grilled some chicken and kielbasa on our charcoal grill and served it with some mac and cheese and corn. The chicken had marinated in some italian seasoning for a day.

Orange juice is good for colds - all that fresh vitamin C, you know. Unless you're allergic to oranges. You're sure it's a cold, right? I know we live in different parts of the country, but I think allergies have been bad all over. Last year was the first time in decades that I took OTC meds - half a Zyrfake, once a day. I think I might have to add a second half at night.

I made patty melts for us - fresh ground beef patties, pan-fried; caramelized onions; American cheese; rye bread. Instead of buttering the bread and grilling the sandwiches on the stove top, I left the bread plain and panini-ed them in my Griddler. Saved the extra calories for pints of fresh-tapped beer from the neighborhood brewery. So good!

Then we blew more calories by adding potato chips. Market Basket had a new kind by Utz, Dark Russet potato chips. I was intrigued, since the dark chips in the bag are my favorite, while Himself scarfs up all of the folded ones. I'd buy these again.

Chopped/salisbury type steak with mushroom/onion gravy, mash made with the guts from the potato skins night before plus celeriac root, and glazed carrots.

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and I spent most of the day moving things out of the old house into storage. While doing that I stuck a small rib roast in the oven - basically because it's a set-it-and-forget-it kind of meal that I didn't want to have to putz over. It really came out nice.

I made some delicious mahi mahi fillets last night. Seasoned flour with Penzeys Mural of Flavor, salt and pepper. Dipped fillets in the flour, then egg, then flour again and pan-fried them in a mixture of butter and oil. Made rice pilaf with Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild Rice and roasted asparagus in the toaster oven. Sprinkled it all with a shower of Parmigiano Reggiano. Yum.

OH MY!! All of that looks wonderful!! I love prime rib with au jus, salad and sometimes a baked white or sweet tater.
