We're having sandwiches or left overs tonight. The kids & I had a big lunch at my parents & I don't really feel like cooking tonight.

Yum Sierra! That sounds great! Is the recipe posted somewhere?

I'll be having some asiago ravioli. I'll saute some mushrooms & spinach, toast some pine nuts, toss it all in brown butter and crumble goat cheese over it all. I'll get started as soon as the sleeping Callum in my arms wakes up.

I didn't go all out for Supper tonight as we had a busy day and weren't famished. However, I'd thawed out some pork chops yesterday and didn't get a chance to fix them so thats what we had tonight.

I went out to my herb garden and snipped some fresh parsley, thyme, oregano and basil and mixed them into some bread crumbs. I dipped the chops in an egg bath and then into the bread mixture and fried them in EVOO with a little butter. Oh and of course seasoned them with S & P. I finished them off in the oven. We only opted for one side dish so that was roasted potatoes that I drizzled with EVOO and sprinkled with fresh rosemary, salt, garlic salt and pepper.

We'd left early this afternoon for the Indianapolis Zoo and had stopped before at KFC. Then on the way back we stopped for ice cream so we weren't very hungry.

So now I sit exhausted .......... catching site of that comfy bed of mine through the corner of my eye..........belly full and heart content. What a beautiful day!

The shrimp turned out so yummy, that I ate them all. With them I had roasted garlic couscous and a sliced avocado. I also made Andy M's Thai Pickled Cucumbers. If you make these make sure that you like spicy food. But I think they are fantastic.

Thai Pickled Cucumbers

1 Seedless Cucumber
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 C Rice Vinegar
3 Tb Sugar
2 Shallots, sliced thin
1 Jalapeno Pepper, minced

Slice the cucumber thinly and toss with the salt. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. (Peeling the cuke is optional)

Separately combine the vinegar, sugar, shallots and jalapeno.

Drain the cucumber and pat dry with paper towels and toss with the vinegar mixture.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

Last night was hot Italian turkey sausage hero/sub/hoagie sandwiches.
I was going to do the sausages outside on the grill, but we had a couple of thunderbusters roll thru, so I ended up cooking them inside on my cast-iron grill pan.

Sliced the sausages lengthwise & served them on nice fresh Italian bread & topped with ketchup & sliced peppers & onions sauteed in olive oil with a sprinkling of granulated garlic & crushed red pepper flakes. Served with a tossed green salad.
