Your salad looks good.. what were all the ingredients? It's kind of hard to see.
Ice Burg and Romaine Lettuce, Radish, Celery, Cucumber, Onion and Shredded Carrot. The Romaine photographed off color. Damm camera phone.
Years ago I used to cook it in the microwave. I just don't remember how long.
I have broiled it a long time ago. Now I just pan fry it in canola oil then drain on paper towels.

Went with the Beef Bourguignon so glad I did! It was delish! Served it with mashed garlic parsley potatoes, fresh buttered green beans and a salad of spring greens, pears, and mandarin oranges dressed with a simple mandarin/olive oil dressing, also a little crusty bread on the side. It all went well with a glass of the Merlot that I opened to use in the Bourguignon .

DH wasn't as enamored as I was, I think that he would have appreciated my regular beef stew more. But I loved it!

we went christmas shopping again today. mom and dad are now taken care of.

on the way home we went out for italian to a place that specializes in homemade pasta. to be honest, the pasta isn't really great as advertised - just ok i guess, but it's not expensive and the food is good.

we shared a family style house salad of baby greens, marinated onions, and fresh mozzarella in a balsamic viniagrette.

then my boy had sketti and meatballs, dw had garlic shrimp over spinach linguini, and i had pork osso buco over risotto.

Ahhh, everything looks delish! I love the ingredients of your salad. I wish Mark liked pears. I think the two fruits paired well with the greens.

It's been ages since I made beef bourguignon. It was in the crock-pot, I think. Great pictures.

Small bread, leftover cold pork roast sandwich - not worth a picture. I'm so impressed with everyone's photos here!

Yesterday went christmas shopping for my girl. Believe it or not I bought her some boxing equipment. She wants to learn how to box.

Last night we went to a salvadorian restaurant and I tried for the first time papusa. Is a bread shaped like a pancake. One was stuffed with fried smashed beans and the other stuffed with chicken. the topping is shredded cabbage with carrots, onions marinated in this delicious vinaigrette.

I've never made beef bourg... (you know what I mean). It looks like stew. And it looks delicious.
How is it different from stew? Do you have a recipe, Somebunny?

You are a beer lover, right? Have you ever had Carbonnade de Boeuf? Stewed beef and vegetables in beer. What more can I say???
