Totally easy tonight.My legs have restless leg and it's torture. So for me 3 small slices of French bread toasted on one side flipped topped with provolone sprinkled with onion power followed with salami. Had some root beer,,Now we will see what Mr, Mr. wants.

Bundled up and went out to the store today. It is SO wrong to go out when the wind speed (16MPH) is greater than the temp (15 degrees at the time...now it's 4 and dropping like a rock). I'm still trying to shake this two-day headache from the darned wind (it's gusting to 46 MPH).

So IF I can motivate myself I'll make rainbow trout almondine with sauteed zucc and yellow squash, garlic-dill redskin potatoes, and mesclun salad with baby fresh mozzarella, black olives and grape tomatoes. Or...there's always the leftover roast chicken with veggies and stuffing from Wednesday. Or maybe I'll put some bourbon in a bowl and call it beef broth!

I do wings, fries, chicken, fish, wontons (all sorts of varieties), etc and this mix is very versatile for all of them. So when do you get your fryer? Have you decided which brand/model yet?
We have a supply store locally that I just found out about. I'll have to see if they stock it. I have not decided on a model yet. I know what features I want it to have but that is about it. I'm going to go to the big mall in February and see what I can find up there. Not a lot of options locally.

I braved the onslaught and hit the store in advance of the big storm coming this way. I picked up a couple of sirloins on sale and broiled them and had rice-a-roni cheesy flavor with it. No veggies tonight. Fighting a cold and just didn't have the energy to get too complicated.

Stay safe and warm, jabbur, and feel better soon. A little soup, a little brandy, and you'll be good as new!

Seasoned strip steaks grilled on the cast iron stovetop grill pan topped with garlic butter and mushroom caps (sautéed in olive oil with salt, ground black pepper, ground red pepper flakes, oregano, fresh onion, fresh garlic and fresh basil leaves), taters mashed (salt, ground pepper butter and sour cream added), garlic bread and steamed carrots.
