Another Monday. Spent the morning working outside and the afternoon doing paperwork. I'd rather be outside!

Anyway, it started to rain ,and it's another night of leftovers. I made a chicken noodle soup and will add grilled cheese sandwiches.

Yes, pacanis, I noticed that, too. Looks like pearl barley to me.

We are having grilled pork tenderloin, fried rice & a salad with strawberries, grapes, orange peppers, dried apricots, red onion, tosted pine nuts, leafy green lettuce & a sesame ginger dressing. My father-in-law's wife is bringing dessert...a custard like cake with fresh berries & chocolate sauce. She made it for dessert last night & it was so good, we asked her to make it again!

We had shish kabobs. I marinated chicken, mushrooms, zuchinni, onions and red peppers in Trader Joes Soyaki. I forgot how much I liked that marinade. Grilled it on sticks an had it with jasmine rice.

we finally got around to making our easter ham (we went to my sis's for easter). it was good but salty.

i'm looking forward to my two potato soup with the meat, and split peas soup with the bone.

No, no picture this time....
I had what I said I would and couldn't believe how good the gravy turned out. I didn't make it out for the shrooms though and just used a piece of the meatloaf and some onions for the "fond". I made some fries, too and poured the gravy over the meatloaf sandwich and the fries.... mmmm.... my kind of food. Even my dogs' noses were tasting the air, so it must have been good
