It sounds exotic and interesting. Would you mind translating those dishes for us please?

Sunday Brunch - mixed berry salad with raspberry poppy seed vinaigrette, Huevos Rancheros Especial, Mexican rice, and peach mimosas made with Jumex peach nectar and Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Cava

Sunday Dinner - I'm making Grandma's Sunday sauce with meatballs and hot Italian sausage, but I will be attacking some bonless loin pork chops with Maxwell's silver hammer until they turn into cutlets which I will, in turn, turn in to pork parmigiana by dreging them in flour, dipping them in egg wash, rolling them in seasoned bread crumbs, sautÚing them in light olive oil until golden, then melting some fresh mozzerella on top. This will be accompanied by spaghetti, sourdough bread and butter and, I don't know, maybe a 2004 Terralba IdentitÓ Barbera Piemonte or a 2009 Cantine di Ora Barbera D'Asti?

Both sound delicious Sir_Loin. But, no parm on the pork parm??

Need to pick up a few items at the market. So far the plan is:

Bloody Mary Crab Cocktails/Shooters (topped with diced avocado)
Pan-fried lemon ricotta gnocchi
Grilled asparagus
Strawberries and ? - or something from the bakery

Homeade pizza today. Still not sure what to top them with though. Would like to try something a little different and adventurous.
Yes I am trying to eat healthy, no I am not on a diet.

We ate at Ruby Tuesdays on the way home from church. Had their soup and salad bar. Broccoli cheese soup, garlic biscuits, shrimp fondue and salad. Too stuffed to think about dinner. May just do up some popcorn and pull out the cold cuts.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

No idea today. I will have to go through the fridge.

I know I do have some zucchini and red peppers in there I should use.

I'ma gonna try to replicate Pioneer Woman's chicken parmesan recipe that I tried last week, this time cutting the still-frozen breasts through the middle. Hopefully they won't poof after pounding. Have some expired panko crumbs to use up.

She who dies with the most toys, wins.
