We just came back from Northern Arizona, where we're moving to... had to do some business up there ... so real simple tonight (after two days of eating meals out that we shouldn't, but loved anyways ) a salad and some broiled Flank Steak.. it's WAY too wind to try and cook on my charcoal Lil Smokey Weber grill tonight... I don't want to start a brush fire here in the middle of the VERY DRY desert !!

I fried some chicken fingers and Tater Tots for dinner.

What's for dinner? Friday April 22, 2016

DH had leftovers, I had half a small pack of Ruffles chips that came with the leftover burgers DH brought home from work yesterday that I repurposed, along with celery sticks and ranch dip.

I'm going to try chicken piccata tonight. I've had the capers since last month and I have an unopened bottle of wine in the fridge for this. Now I have to either A) find more recipes that use white wine B) freeze the wine or C) drink the rest of it before it goes bad. Problem is, more than one glass of wine will put me under the table and give me a monstrous headache. So it looks like I'll be doing A and B after tonight.

I went with roasted cinnamon sweet potato 'fries'. It was delicious, and I'm glad I was able to use up the rest of that monster rib eye from yesterday.

Let us know how you liked your chicken piccata, RR! I love it and haven't had it in quite a while.

Don't let the wine go bad - that's alcohol abuse!

If you're not a wine drinker, you can use chicken stock as a substitute to deglaze the pan. The taste will be somewhat different, but I think with the other flavors in piccata it would still be quite good. There are some sauces where I prefer chicken stock over wine.
