I have no idea. Everything is frozen, so my choices are chicken breasts or pork, some fresh veggies. Or, maybe take out!

I'm hoping grilled pork chops, home fries loaded with sour cream and green beans, but if the chops don't thaw quickly enough without electronic encouragement, orange roughy for me, too That takes no time at all to thaw and I have one filet left from last time they went on sale.
Last night I watched RR make tilapia. That fish is going on my shopping list next time I'm in town. The texture looks similar to orange roughy.

Pub grub tonight!
We're headed to the Ram's Head Tavern in Annapolis to see Billy Bob Thorton and the Boxmasters! I've seen his movies, but didn't know he also had a band.

it is dh's birthday, 58, and he requested:

sausage gravy over whole wheat toast

pasta salad, because he knows it is already made, has seen it a few times this week

no dessert

but i am sure i can tempt him with some homemade ice cream, fr vanilla with a light dose of peppermint oil and a liberal dose of chopped dark chocolate

way to go kadesma, this is great!!

Grilled chicken tossed with bow tie pasta, tossed with pesto made with homegrown basil, home grown grape and pear tomatoes, and possibly ice cream for dessert.
