How come you have dinner so early?

My fridge is so full that you have to push the door to keep it closed! We're having leftovers! There's pizza, ham, mac'n'cheese, corn pudding, sausage gravy and biscuits, country fried steak and mashed potatoes, salad stuff and asparagus. Think that will be enough to keep the hounds fed?

When I visited Spain (many years ago), this was the norm. Light breakfast, a big lunch between 1 and 3 pm, and maybe a late afternoon nibble. Dinner doesn't usually come until late in the evening and it's more what some of us in the US would consider a snack. It's probably a healthier way of eating when you think about it. You're not consuming a heavy meal late in the day when your body doesn't really need the fuel.

Tonight we are having black beans, rice, and homemade corn tortillas.

It IS a healthier way, Steve. But we do it because DH works 3 - 11 pm and needs to take sandwiches for his "dinner" and I just make extra so I have one too. We eat our main meal around 1:00 pm before he goes. I do find it great in many ways, one being I have that sandwich for later and don't have to make anything for myself.

Today, I am taking some gluten-free sweet Italian sausages I found and making little meatballs out of them for meatball subs. I have some marinara in the freezer so that will pair nicely with it. I think a romaine salad on the side will round out the meal nicely!

Tonight's dinner will feature a Mongolian beef stir-fry with snow peas, scallion and sliced cremini mushrooms, brown rice with carrot, steamed broccoli, and I can't decide if I want the 2010 Red Rock California Malbec, the 2010 Black Pheasant California Zinfandel, or a Stella Artois

Honey teriyaki ribs

The heat has been wearing me out, so I picked up a few things from the Deli to graze on:

Mango cole slaw, red potato salad w/ dill, edamame salad

Coffee ice cream & fresh strawberries

I just put pork chops in marinade, and I have pasta on the stove boiling for pasta salad tonight. Thinking either butter beans or green beans with it.

Meatloaf, mashed taters and gravy, fresh corn, homemade biscuits, with a glass of bourbon and perhaps a good cigar for dessert.
