Roast Chicken with lemon and the first fresh herbs from my little garden, and roasted asparagus.
Spring is here!
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Buffalo burgers on the grill, roasted sweet potatoes in a lime/garlic marinade and maybe some red wine - I'm feeling the need to bust out some alcohol.

I used the last of my heavy cream to make another instalment of Alfredo, and had a Roasted tomato, walnut & Manchego salad on the side.

OOOOOH. That is my old standby. My kids love that dinner.

By the way. My pizza turned out pretty good. For the Spinach alfredo I just used an instant alfredo sauce and one can of spinach. I asked one of my daughters if it tasted like Papa Johns. She said "NO" "It's better".

You have to love them when they are young.
Two things make every meal better. Pork Fat and Carbonation. It's that simple.

Didn't feel like eating a lot but had a new recipe for a creamy chive salad dressing. Had all the ingredients including ample fresh chives and fresh parsley. Poured that over hearts of romaine with a nice helping of Gorgonzola cheese and bacon bits. Served it with some fresh baguette and cookies for dessert.

Total Comfort Food

I stopped at the store on the way home from work and decided on pork chops! They were coated with seasoned crumbs and browned in butter. Then, I covered cream of mushroom soup and baked in the oven for 40 minutes at 375 F. On the side, were stuffing and canned green beans. Mark shouldn't have stuffing or breaded pork chops, but I think once a week isn't that big of a deal.

Hey, when you get home from work, you don't always have the energy to make everything from scratch.

Here was dinner....


A little kindness goes a long way.
