We had, as my aunt called them, tube steaks (hot dogs) and macaroni and cheese.

We had porketta (cooked yesterday) sandwiches over homemade hard rolls (made today). Sides were green tomato pickles and zucchini pickles. Iced tea to drink. Dessert was pistachio swirl cake with whipped topping on top.

Trader Joe's Chicken Breasts in Poblano Sauce (microwave). I focused on the "Poblano" and missed the "reduced guilt" (210 calories, 2..5 grams of fat). I've never seen a chicken breast as small as the two "chicken breasts" combined, each about 2"x2" and I'm being generous. I ate it with a salad and a flour tortilla.

I'm definitely not happy tonight. It's either go to the market or take-out tomorrow.

Trader Joe's has some good entrees and this isn't one of them.

after the movies today, we went out to a local restaurant the specializes in restaurant made fresh pasta.

we started with the family style house "chopped" salad - mixed greens, gorgonzola, tomatoes, olives, walnuts, dried cranberries, and red peppers in a balsamic dressing.

then my boy has fresh sketti and meataballs, dw had shrimp rossini (shrimp in a creamy, spicy tomato sauce over fresh spinach linguini), and i had a daily special of pan seared mahi mahi over fresh spinach spaghetti alla puttanesca.

everything was good; my mahi mahi special was outstanding! the fish was cooked perfectly, and the sauce was delicious with the spaghetti. well made fresh pasta is a wonderful thing.

and to gild refined gold, we finished with an absolutely delicious piece of tiramisu and cappucinos. the tiramisu was so good there were dueling spoons for the last bites.

everything was so good (including the servce) i think we may be going back on tuesday for v-day.

It was my last supper....well for the next 36 hours anyway. I am having a test done Monday morning and can only have clear fluids until midnight tomorrow and then nothing.

So, we grilled strip loins with baked sweet potatoes, sauteed mushrooms and grilled prosciutto wrapped asparagus. I ate my whole steak and sides - haven't eaten that much in weeks. It was fantastic! I love cooking with DH.
