Cheeseburger, cabbage salad, broccoli di rapi sauteed with olive oil, garlic and hot pepper flakes.

It amazes me that they can grow rapini, and many other things, in California then ship it to my local grocery store in CNY and sell it to me for 99 cents a pound!

I'm making club sandwiches with leftover bacon and chicken from the other night, tomatoes from the garden and romaine. We also have leftover potato salad.

Is did get the ground beef for tonight's burgers, but also got a rotisserie chicken and we decided to have that for dinner along with stuffing and a veg.

That will sure change once we finally run out of underground water here. Come on El Nino..sock it to us!!

I'm grilling a pork tenderloin marinated in Goya Mojo Criollo. Love that stuff. Broccoli seamed, and a baked spud for my darling SC.

Seriously, Kay. I keep hearing El Nino is going to be a doozy - which will cause other problems, but we SO need that water!

I ended up with the Greek style salad for this afternoon's dinner. I mixed some Penzeys Greek seasoning with olive oil and red wine vinegar for the dressing, and it was delicious. Will probably snack on a few slices of cheddar and some crackers, as salad alone doesn't go very far.

While we were at the hospital yesterday, and my early breakfast and snack of 1/4 cup grapes and a cheese stick were a long-ago memory, I said to Himself that I had better run out to get something before everywhere was closed. He said "you could run and get Thai for us". Alas, this exchange occurred 20 minutes after our favorite Thai restaurant closed.

While driving home from getting food for us AND our bird friends (AKA, Pigs with Wings), I suddenly heard Himself's voice say "you can get Thai". Yup, Thai Orchid was along the route! Tom Yum for Himself, Glass Noodle soup for me, an order of Golden Bags to split, and both Pineapple FR and House FR. I was hungry and not thinking...I should have made one of those a Pad Thai.

Hmmm, pad thai. Two mentions today. Maybe I should put it in the rotation soon.

Just wanted to add that I brought that marinade of Goya Mojo Criollo to a boil, whisked in some chunks of butter for a killer sauce on the sliced grilled pork tenderloin cooked to med. for 20 minutes on the grill. It was really outstanding if I do say so myself.
