that's what i ended up doing while dw made herb roasted fingerlings and heated up a can of baby peas.

the chicken was slathered with amish peach jam after grilling. it was delicious.

That is my kind of meal. Sounds so good.

I sautéed bell peppers, onions and garlic, then added cooked crumbled Italian sausage and some seasonings. Let that cook while I boiled some rotini, then mixed it all together. I also have garlic bread in the toaster oven.

Turkey mince (sauteed with onion and garlic) mixed into stir fry veg and chinese noodles - with sundried tomato paste and reduced chicken stock....a kind of turkey chow mein.

It's just too blamed hot here to even go out and barbeque. I just don't do heat well at all.

I had some ground lamb in the fridge so I made the little one pound meatloaf wrapped in foil with Steve Kroll's recipe for Gyros's, and put it in the toaster oven instead of the big oven.
A quick nuke of the Pita bread, and we'll be all set with tomatoes and onions for terrific Gyro's.
Ice cream bars for later.

Your steak salad looks great!

We had Lamb Chops and Creamy Cucumber Salad.

Where's the Beef...

Why, it's in my pasta sauce! Thanks for asking.

I didn't feel like cooking, but we always feel like eating, so I defrosted a package of ground beef and sauteed it with onion, garlic, and Italian seasonings. Opened and poured a jar of sauce, then rinsed the jar out with red wine and added that to the pan. Decided to use a fun shape pasta instead of spaghetti noodles. I opted for Fiore. Of course, there was a salad before the pasta. Pretty soon I'll want soup instead of salad.

I ended up with chorizo and egg. About fresh veggied out for the day, found "cocktail cucumbers"at Costco and they were good. I'll have a nectarine in a few minutes.
