The Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich was DELICIOUS and it didn't take long to cook at all. But for those of you that would like the recipe here it is.

4 chicken breasts
1 bottle Teriyaki sauce (we used Lawry's brand)
3/4 c. brown sugar
4 slices deli ham
1 can sliced pineapple (or you can use fresh which would be even better)
4 slices Pepper Jack cheese
4 large hamburger buns

Pound chicken breasts until they are about 1/4" thick all around. Place in a large Ziploc bag. Combine Teriyaki sauce and brown sugar until sugar dissolves. Add 1/2 of the mixture to the bag with the chicken and seal tightly. Place bag in refrigerator for at least 4-5 hours. Separate remaining Teriyaki mixture into 2 separate bowls (to prevent cross contamination use 2 separate brushes too)-- one for the pineapple, one for the chicken. Open pineapple can and save a little of the juice in a bowl. Place chicken and pineapple on the grill (medium heat).

Brush with Teriyaki sauce every few minutes until chicken and pineapple are done-- try to only flip the chicken and pineapple once. Either on the grill or in a frying pan, cook ham with a little of the pineapple juice until it becomes nice and hot. Slice open hamburger buns and place a piece of cooked chicken on each bottom bun. Top with cheese, ham, grilled pineapple, and bun top. Serve immediately with remaining grilled pineapple.

I just finished my grilled cajun wings along with potato wedges and some carrots and celery.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Leftover loafpan lasagna. It firmed up a bit in the fridge. Don't make the same mistake I did with adding too much water due to the no boil noodles. Still really good flavor.
I use no boil noodles, but have never added any water. It comes out just fine.

Tonight was burritos with the taco meat mixture from yesterday. I still have a container left for either more tacos or chili. I think I'll freeze it for now.

Texas Cooking: Chicken Fried Chicken w/cream gravy. Good flavors. Had to use extra liquid in gravy and it was still thick. Mis en place but probably mis-en-measured the roux flour.

Alton Brown: Best Ever Bean Casserole - Pan fried the onion rings like others suggensted. Good Eats, just like he said.

Yesterday's peeled baked potato - Reheated. Mashed. Tasty.

Spent the day shopping, for something we never found (jeans to fit my husband). Then stopped at a pub-type place several people recommended and found it was closed on Mondays. Roll of eyes (don't feel like looking for the icon). Frustrating day overall. We just did what I call "eating around", that is we chose what we want from what is here (almost always home-made leftovers), nuke and move on to a better day.

My first try at saltimbocca and it was pretty good.
Pork saltimbocca (boneless pork loin pounded thin, prosciutto, Swiss cheese, my AP seasoning, poultry seasoning rolled jelly roll fashion and secured with toothpicks then pan fried in butter), pan gravy (dry white wine, chicken stock, butter and flour). Served mash red potatoes (red potatoes in jackets, sour cream, butter, sea salt, ground peppercorns and dry chives) and fresh steamed green beans and sliced mushroom caps sautéed in butter and sliced almonds.

Tonight we had a mega-salad of lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, sweet onion, cauliflower, chickpeas, etc., and some leftover pizza.
