Dinner Monday, 2-29-2016 ~ What will have you leaping with joy?

I'll be using up foods intended for meals a few days ago. I'm hoping my defrosted sausage doesn't have to make a leap into the trash. At least it was a sealed package of the pre-cooked variety.

I'll saute discs of sausage, then fry up sweet onion, green pepper, mushrooms, and very ripe Roma tomatoes. That will get piled up on top of a few bowtie pastas.

What's leaping onto your plate?

Those are almost too pretty to eat, S&P! Almost...

Leftover chicken strips here, plus whatever else we scrounge.

Mmm...looks good, Joey. Looks like those lobster claws are ready to grab a bite of that sushi.

Been a busy day today. A friend called me this morning and asked if I could come over and help her with some household things. She's disabled and her husband is in the hospital, so times are tough for her right now. When I got home it was time to get Tyler, and we played baseball in the backyard instead of me cooking dinner....sooo...to make a long story short a very simple dinner will be leaping onto my plate - I'm thinking a tuna melt or maybe an omelette with some leftover asparagus.

I had an early condo board meeting and came home and grilled some super burgers for SO and me.
