I have plenty of leftovers from the turkey I cooked yesterday, so I'll just heat up a plate of that and finish the last of the brownies I made last week.

I made a yummy pork stir fry with asparagus and red peppers. Served it with brown rice. I'm having a chocolate almond breeze cocoa for dessert.

Found a "healthy" rcipe that sounded good, so I tried it. Ground turkey meatballs in a tomato sauce. It had chopped baby spinach and chopped fresh basil in it, along with oatmeal and egg white to bind. Also used 1/4 cup plain yogurt (no fat). Tomato sauce had gatlic and basil. Sounds good, huh? It was HORRIBLE! ! ! But it sure sounded good on paper. Silly me.......

I made Penne with Artichokes and Tomato (artichoke hearts and diced tomato in a creamy parmesan/garlic sauce over penne pasta)... I had a slice of wheat bread-n-butter with that. I'm bringing the leftovers for lunch!
A little kindness goes a long way.

For dinner I used a portion of a pork tenderloin, pounded it out thin, floured/seasoned it and then fried it, creamy lemon potato salad, green beans, sliced apple and corn.
The remainder of the tenderloin is marinating and will become char sui that I will use in Singapore rice noodles tomorrow night.

SO is having surgery on her hand for a torn ligament on Thursday so she gets a special request meal.

I made a stuffed flank steak and mashed potatoes.

We had the first BBQ of the season! Sirloin steaks, potatoes and onions all done on the grill. Oh, nothing beats the taste of that very first spring BBQ.

Beautiful photo, marigene. The pork looks like it's fried to perfection. VB, your photo is great too. I love artichokes and would really like to have the recipe for the sauce.
