Congratulations, loves2"Q." Hope you have a happy anniversary any way you celebrate it. Sure is amazing how quiet a house can be when the children are away.

As for our dinner tonight, today was our monthly "date" day and we had fabulous pizza for a late lunch. Delicious and we're both still full so we'll probably hit the refrigerator for something leftover to fill the hole later tonight. Brought home 2 slices of pizza, so we may have a cold encore if we don't raid the leftovers.

We were cleaning out the summer garden this afternoon, then shopping for fall garden plants, then grocery shopping - I must have four or five pounds of tomatillos.

Anyway, I'm making fried rice with chicken from leftovers - I have several cups of rice with veggies that were leftover after a luncheon at work and DH grilled a large package of chicken legs that he took out of the small freezer he was defrosting, so I'll mix those together with a scrambled egg and some garlic, ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil, and maybe one of those green chiles I have

Saturday nights dinner... Rolled beef roast cooked on a spit, basted with wine, salt, pepper. Grilled asparagus with olive oil and sea salt. For desert, some home made carmel popcorn still warm from the pan.... Dinner was served with a nice Cabernet, dessert with coffee with a touch a Brinley's Gold Coffee rum(a sweet, vanilla, carmel flavored rum). The only pot to clean---the carmel pan.... Ah.... perhaps another glass of wine.....

I agree, James and I would have gladly helped you polish off that meal Jeff!

We had baked chicken, baked potatoes, and cold pickled beets.

We had a big chef's salad with all kinds of goodies in it, and toasted garlic bread. Tasted good after all the sandwiches we've been eating lately.

Barabara, Katie... you would have both been welcome.

I had never made the Carmel corn before. It's a nice desert. I just kind of made it on a whim, no recipe and it worked!!
