Made some yummy tuna pasta with fresh tomato, chilli and herbs from my garden. Also put some julienned carrots, zucchini, red bell pepper, onions and string beans in. Oh and some of my homemade chilli sauce and smoked paprika. Came out really good!

Still working on leftovers here. Have half a pork loin that's already been roasted in the fridge. Will take that out and reheat it with some BBQ sauce (Maybe I'll fire up the grill for that) and serve it with the leftover potato salad

CW that sounds so very good! I will keep that in mind - we love eggplant and DH can have salsa. I'll keep it the same for me and change out the feta for his "uncheese". And I love the name!

If I can get to the fish market I think I will try Tyler Florence's Ahi Tuna which Zereh posted in the Ahi Tuna thread. However it is raining so I might see what I can do with the cross-cut shortribs I bought forgetting I can't do them my normal way as DH now can't have soy.

I like to make a ratatouille and then I put the cold leftovers in a food proccesser and give it a quick pulse a few times. Then I eat it cold on crackers or bread as a garden anti pasto...

Rock--I don't even bother to makes the chunks smaller...I love it cold without the crackers. Do sometimes eat "garden antipasto" on homemade whole wheat pita wedges...(anything with eggplant, bring it on)! I haven't met an eggplant-based dish yet that I don't like...

LP, I just slice the eggplant, sprinkle it with a bit of salt, let it drain in a colander for about 30 minutes. I then blot it dry with papertowels, dredge the eggplant sticks in a bit of seasoned flour, then egg with a bit of milk/water, and then dry bread crumbs. Place the sticks (you could cut the eggplant in wedges), on a lightly oiled cookie sheet for about 10 minutes at 400-425, flip, and bake another 10 minutes.

I'm still trying to figure out what to make tonight! Maybe will grill something. Just don't know what sounds good yet. I am sure I will think of something after reading what everyone will have.

I've been sitting her trying to think what I'll make for dinner.

Then SO called and said a woman who is friends with the family she works for made some type of Asian stuffed peppers and she is bringing some home for dinner tonight.

I have no clue what kind of peppers or what they are stuffed with. The person said they should be eaten with soy sauce and sour cream! That seems unusual. Sour cream?
