so last night about 5:00 pm I completely changed what I was going to fix for dinner and we liked it so well I am doing it on purpose tonight.

Our renters gave us for Christmas a pampered chef baking stone in the shape of a large cookie sheet. I have dedicated it to roasting vegetables. I scrubbed a few yukon gold taters and some sweet potatoes cut into large chunks, smeared on some olive oil, sprinkled on course salt and freshly ground pepper and baked them on the baking pan. They were SO GOOD.

oh wait, I forgot, along with the baked potatoes and baked sweet potatoes, I served a small mound of blueberry crisp; will too tonight

It's becoming tradition to meet some friends on Sunday evenings at this little Mexican restaurant. GREAT service, funny too! GREAT food, cheap margaritas...that's the plan.

I didn't have to make dinner today. Dh's birthday is coming up this week so our dd made dinner for us. We had a really good roast beef, roasted potato wedges, squash casserole and a green salad. Carrot cake (his favorite) for dessert. He was very pleased.

Rotisserie chicken from the store, cornbread dressing, sliced tomatoes and a fresh fruit salad.

I'm happy that we have a fridge full of leftovers for weekday lunches. Love it when it works out that way!

Cornish Game hens, split down the back, flattened out. Some sage, oregano, rosemary, salt & pepper on top (along with olive oil and butter). Cornbread dressing, green beans. Having a nice cold Dos Equis to wash it down.

I'm thinking about making a second attempt at meatballs. Last time, I added too many spices I believe.
