I was considering ordering from the local Chinese take out but didn't feel like paying the extra for delivery and thunderstorms were starting and didn't feel like going out in that. Found some ham steaks in the freezer. Popped them in the microwave while I made a pot of mac and cheese. It really tasted good tonight. I used cream cheese, some velveeta, cheddar and swiss.

I'm trying to think of a smartarse comment, 'cause that sounds really good and I'm not having it.

hmm Now I'm curious! Do you use uncooked quinoa? or do you cook, or even par-boil it, before you use it on the fish? I'd love to see your recipe if you don't mind sharing.

Thanks TL and vitauta. It was very good...that would be the venison that we'd aged for about 14 days...

Decided last minute to join friends at Mimi's Cafe for dinner. I guess that I'll never learn. Went there a couple times a few years ago and wasn't really impressed, hadn't been back. I thought that it may be better this time. I was wrong. My pork chops were supposed to be "Honey Dijon" but they had just been fried plain. I thought they were kid of bland, but was so wrapped up in conversation that I didn't realize what I had actually ordered until I got home. The "steamed" vegetables were pretty much raw (broccoli slightly cooked, carrots not at all". The mashed potatoes were pretty good. The french onion soup, OK, not bad. The bread pudding was OK, but again not great.

I am trying not to turn into a chain restaurant hater, but these places aren't making it that easy for me!

I should have just went out for frozen yogurt like I had planned for dinner.
