I think that was the best salad I have ever had! Not the fanciest, but so tasty! Romaine, tomato, avocado, fresh mushroom, green onion, cheese, ham, and bleu cheese dressing.

The tandoori chicken was such a success (this time i didn't incinerate it) that any leftover meat and its carcass be turned in broth as a base to make muligatawny soup. Perfect for tomorrow's stormy weather.

ate the artichoke after all, it was yummy, nicest one i have had lately. a bit pricey though. but i love em so am willing to pay. same for lobster. one market had tails for 6.99 in their ad today. granddaughter going to pick me up a couple. can't wait with patience.

For the chimichangas I heated up some leftover chile beans, sautéed some trimmings from a tenderloin added them to the beans and melted in some gouda cheese. Put them into some tortillas that I softened in the microwave. Added a touch of oil to a non stick pan and browned them. The ones in front are a bit darker (a bit burnt) on the other side.
