LadyCook61 - something about your meal has my mouth watering! Oh wait, make that everything about your meal! Yum!

We're having a quick dinner of Everyday Macaroni & Cheese from CI's The Best Light Recipe made with sharp cheddar, steamed broccoli from the farmers market, and honeycrisp apples from the orchard down the road. Can't wait. :)

There was a change in plans. I forgot I made Mark a nice size salad as part of his lunch. So, I threw together (literally) some cooked wagon-wheel pasta and a simple sauce made from milk, butter and mozzarella cheese. Tossed in with that was a little tomato and green onion. I sliced some chicken nuggets and laid them on top. He seems to like it. It tasted pretty good.

that looks great. alfredo with mozz, i never that of that.

btw wagon wheels are my favorite pasta shape since mom first made buitoni wheels for me as a little kiddie!! i miss the high protein buitoni brand 1/2 lb boxes of pasta. the spinach spaghetti twists, wagon wheels and shells were also 3 more of my favorites.

That was not what I had planned at all for dinner, believe me, but it actually turned out pretty tasty! They were just frozen chicken nugget, but they added a nice crunch to the pasta dish. I didn't think it would be good at all. When in dawned on me that I made him a big salad for lunch, I figured two salads in one day was overkill. I get so used to making him a sandwich, etc.

I love the wagon wheels too, and I have another bag! I'm going to have to use that again soon.

Last night was an impromptu very spicy quicky "Jambalaya":

1 box of Zatarain's Jambalaya rice mix cooked up with 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces & sauteed in some extra-virgin olive oil, 1 can of Rotel HOT diced tomatoes & Habanero peppers, & about a dozen sliced fresh crisp baby okra from the farmers market. Accompanied by crusty bread & a nice green salad. Delicious!!

I had a hamburger with carmelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que sauce & a side of coleslaw made with cabbage, apples, raisins & grapes. A pumpkin chocolate chip cookie with a glass of cold milk for dessert.
