Leftover extra spicy spaghetti sauce (doctored and diluted) and leftover minced bbq chops with kidney beans and veg in the CP. I'll call it Barley y Fagioili.

I don't plan too many meals in advance, either. But tonight will be seared scallops in a cream/sherry sauce over linguini. Yumm. One of my favorite "fancy" meals.

Since if feels more like fall, we're having this beef stew, along with homemade potato rolls with butter, a nice bottle of red wine and some of the buttery cashew cookies I made for our trip. Amazingly, some of the cookies are still left.

This is a pretty basic recipe. Try it and see if you like it. The browner the butter and noodles, the better the taste. An easy addition is to saute some minced shallot or onion with the butter and noodles. You can google and find endless variations.

Can you toss one of those sandwiches over this way?
I have Red Beans simmering for Red Beans and Rice. I will make a salad to go along.

The beans are on. The moink balls are on. The ribs are on.
