That looks really yummy. Not going to happen at my house. The DH likes his meat well done, he doesn't eat raw tomatoes, and he gets nauseous just smelling Brussels sprouts.

I'll be making that chicken cacciatore I wanted to make yesterday. The chicken is now defrosted. I'll make a salad to go with that, but there is never tomato or cucumber in salad that my DH is going to eat.

Tonight I'm making shrimp, sauteed in a garlic/butter/white wine sauce with red pepper flakes. Serving it with steamed asparagus and brown rice. Dessert will be a deep dark decadent Devil's Food Cake with a dark chocolate ganache.

I( can completely understand. I just had to make myself eat a single ham patty so I could take my meds.

The moment you all have been waiting for. The end to Pacanis' Personal Pigskin Challenge! And what more fitting way to bid farewell to my culinary travels than to make a dish symbolizing American Capitalism (and gluttony) that was actually invented in Pittsburgh!
I give to you, the Big Mac! My style, grilled, but it's all there. And layered correctly, too

We both enjoy a nice steak, so we had grilled steaks. Just right and almost 2-inches thick. Sauteed onions and mushrooms on top and a mixed salad of romaine, kalamata olives, feta cheese, artichoke hearts and some kind of yummy little peppers that were stuffed with mozzarella cheese wrapped in prosciutto. Washed it down with iced tea and both of us were too full to even consider one little Christmas cookie for dessert. Oh, well, the cookies will still be here tomorrow.
