This looks wonderful. I already have andouille sausage in the freezer. I don't care about carbs so I will make it the normal way and have it with rice.

Steve....your Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo looks soooo good - has my mouth watering for some.

Rock...I LOVE fajitas and those look great. It reminded me that I haven't made those in a couple of months. Our local grocery has skirt steak on sale this weekend, I think fajitas will be on the menu.

I ran some errands out in town early this afternoon and ended up stopping at my favorite little mom and pop restaurant for one of their delicious (huge!) hamburgers with steak fries. I'll just nibble a little bit later on.

I did this very tasty recipe tonight and it's a real keeper...
Easy Thai Chicken - Damn Delicious

On the side I did Cauliflower "fried rice" with all the bells and whistles.

We ended up with hot dogs, chips and cheesecake. Too tired to come up with anything else.

Everyone's meals sound better than ours!
I'm still trying to get use to this new kitchen in the rental apartment that we have the next 4-6 months.
Some burners on the stovetop are REALLY hot and I wound up burning one side of the chicken thighs that I was trying to saute, but decided to change pans and burners and got the other side okay-dokey... added some marinara and topped it all with some shredded mozzarella; some orecchiette and a small loaf of ciabatta on the side, MMM! Who knew that one side of that chicken was burnt?

Purdy fajitas, Rock.

Steve, I couldn't do gumbo carb-free. My mouth needs the rice to temper the heat. I don't have an asbestos mouth like you do.

Joey, that trout must have been sooooooo delicious with as fresh as it was.

Kayelle, I saved that recipe. I think I'll send Himself out to grill the chicken though, and just glaze it with that sauce near the end of cooking.


********************

We knocked off all the rest of the leftovers. We shared the bowl of cheesy cauliflower soup. Then Himself finished the ribs, rice & beans, and corn off the cob. I made another fajita salad. I have lots of room in the fridge for a big shop tomorrow.

That sauce would be wonderful to finish grilled chicken CG. For baking I made that amount of sauce for 4 thighs instead of 8 thighs and it was the perfect amount. The balance of flavors is spot on imo.
