I just ran out of time. I went grocery shopping in the morning. Where we moved is just not a city to find Mexican ingredients. My plan was to make 3 meals, lasagna, pot roast and a homemade mole. Made the lasagna, which we had for dinner and the pot roast for another meal. Stowed one of the pans of lasagna in the freezer for later use. I now have all the ingredients, including a substitute for the Mexican chocolate, so I'll make the sauce today.

Those teenage chokes are good eating Cheryl! Hope you scored lots of goodies at TJ's.

I used another jar of their Thai Green Curry Simmer Sauce last night, this time using shrimp, colored bell pepper, scallion, fresh spinach and then mixed in mostly cooked lo mein noodles to finish. Gosh it was sooo good!

Dang, THAT'S what I forgot...! I'll have to pick some up next trip. I got a few bags of stuff, Kay, but not as much as I wanted to. We also had a Costco trip to make, and there's only so much room in the back of my daughter's SUV. I didn't want to hog it all.

Next time consider a UHaul trailer. I saw this interesting bit on the "Sunday Morning" show today.....Pirate Joe's.. You could start a business in the Ca. desert!

Wow, sounds like it would be in TJ's best interests to expand to our friends north of the border! I love Mo Rocca, btw.

Sauteed a duck breast which I had with a disastrous risotto. Think I stirred the rice too long in the oil at the initial stage (before adding the stock) which made it hard to open and absorb the stock. Also used the whole stock cube which was overly salty (despite adding roasted red pepper, tomato and a whole bunch of chopped parsley).
