Tonight I am having the dinner guests I had to cancel last week because our sewer backed up! Fortunately, that is now fixed and functioning nicely.

I'm having boiled and chilled shrimp served over mixed greens with a papaya and mango salsa dressing, bread and an apple tart with home made ice cream. Shrimp is cooked and shelled, salsa is made (oh, it is really good), bread is defrosting and tart is cooling on the counter. Ice cream is in the freezer getting hard (I hope).

Now for a siesta........

I have leftover chicken breast from a wine-butt chicken. It will become either fettuccine Alfredo with chicken or sesame noodles with chicken - can't decide. Either way, we'll have green salad from the garden with it.

I just bought a bottle of this new asian style salad dressing marinade stuff. It is good enough to drink straight from the bottle, no really...
your chicken reminds me that'd be a good use for it too...I have some in the freezer but must get home first before I can get it out

He likes both and I haven't done the crisp for awhile, but yeah, I have pretty well decided on the cake. Thanks for your vote, Lefse!!

You know Laurie, I love 'em both. Either will be perfect, just if you make the cake, can you promise it'll be really runny inside, I love it that way

Oh, Lefse it is "really runny" the way I make it. And the best part is it makes four and there are only three of us........can you be here around 5:30 our time?

The devil made me do it!

I try to eat healthy. Now and then the devil pays me a visit.
Tonight it's a plated version of frito pie. It tastes so good!

Add a side of guacamole. Avacados are good for the skin, no?

And a few peppers that release those much needed endorphins.

Trouble is I don't drink beer and have no tequila on hand. Can't decide whether chabli or shiraz is in order.

Enjoy, Simplicity. Some of my last words will almost certainly be "I should have eaten more avocadoes!"
