I'm leaning towards a simple pasta of chopped heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil, and Asiago cheese. Maybe a protein that swims with it.

ain't it just my dumb luck that today I choose to be in Vegas instead of home where I'd be REAL close to Kades!
where ever the kids want to go to dinner is where I'll or we'll be.
don't know what we'll dine on, no matter, I NEED baby fixes

Uhh, Lefs..... 48 years old and a nineteen inch monitor aint cutting it here
What is that, six font?

I'm going to sear a couple huge country style ribs on the grill and toss em in the pressure cooker with some BBQ sauce and some potatoes. I'm thinking I can let the ribs swim in the sauce and set my metal rack on top of them to keep the potatoes out of the sauce, just the opposite if I'm not using BBQ sauce.... we'll see
