Margarita! Or squeeze them over the salad for the zing factor.

Well, if you mixed in some cooked shells or elbow macaroni instead of serving over potatoes you could call it goulash

All this talk of asparagus had me wanting to wrap some in bacon and cook it on the grill with some warmed up leftover steak from the other night, but alas, the store only had four pathetic looking wrinkled bunches on the shelf... sigh... but the bell peppers were looking good, so steak fajitas cooked in the mesh grill pan instead.

I grilled a couple of ribeye steaks. I had planned to serve them with mushrooms, bacon wrapped asparagus and baked potatoes. With little sleep last night I wasn't quite with it on my timing so we got steaks, nugget potatoes and the deli salads from last night. It still all tasted good!

Back from the market, I got a can of 5 Pillsbury flaky buttermilk biscuits for $1.29 and a variety of vegetables for either a dip or a salad.

Probably lots of people spend more time on mashed potatoes but I just chop the whole potato (unpeeled) into chunks and boil till soft, drain, then mash in some cream and butter. I like 'em rustic!

Because it was supposed to be (and is) a beautiful day today and I wanted to spend it outside playing, well gardening, trimming trees, etc., I put a nice piece of beast into the crock-pot, along with some 'shrooms, chopped onions, red wine and a can of cream of mushroom soup. We'll have that with some mashed taters and a couple of ears of fresh corn-on-the-cob. Iced tea will wash it down and we'll finish up the blackberry cobbler for dessert. Great day!

After dragging the Ogre through the Health Care System today, it was too late for me to go into work for a few hours, so we went to Noodle Express and I had Asian Green Beans, Chicken Osaka, Asian Slaw and Brown Rice. Shrek had a bowl of rice with different sauces on it and a few pieces of my chicken. He had ordered Halibut Osaka, but the fish was dry and he didn't like it. Then we went to the bakery next door and bought two pieces of jalapeno cornbread and cheddar.

Tonight for dinner I will have the rest of my green beans and a chunk of the cornbread. Not sure what Shrek is having, he says he won't be hungry.

Question for those of you who grill bacon-wrapped asparagus on the outdoor grill: What thickness of bacon do you use? Planning out the menu for what I want Himself to fix for dinner on Moms' Day this Sunday and I know the asparagus will be much more favorable to him if it's encased in bacon. Not his favorite veggie.

*****************

Tonight it will be the pork chops and chicken breasts that were supposed to be grilled yesterday, along with corn on the cob. I have a couple smashed redskin potatoes ready to go into the toaster oven. Skipping the salad tonight. The chops look so pretty I'm thinking of chilling a bottle of white. Yup, wine with dinner it is!
