I'm making a tomato cream sauce with spicy sausage, mushrooms, roasted red pepper. I'll serve it over penne. Its always a hit. All my boys are sick. Dh doesnt like to eat when he's sick but I think this will hit the spot even so.
Dessert will be hershey's kisses and tea.

Gee, that sounds good, Essie. I love Italian food.

I'm having a cold roast beef sandwich, a glass of skim milk and a banana...
After I'm done drinking beer, that is.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Italian is my favorite. I will eat just about any kind of pasta dish. Tomorrow, I'm making cheese ravioli.

A little hodge podge around here last night trying to rearrange the fridge

Yellow Tail Snapper fillets/fingers/chunks dipped in an egg wash and then into a mix of flour, grits (didn't have any corn meal!!), SnP and then fried in Smart Balance Omega-3 oil. Some left over pork w/snow peas, peas & shrooms from Friday nites IC3 and a dibby dab of Captn Rums tartar sauce

I added about teaspoon of dried chilli flakes in addition to the deseeded fresh chillo. When the veg is software add tomato puree and then a jar of passata. Season. Let it simmer a while before adding a tin of cannellini beans and a tin of haricot beans. Let these work there way into the stew, before adding loads of chopped parsley. Oh and about a glass of white wine went in before adding the tomatoes too!
Oh, James, this sounds amazing! I love anything with beans or chorizo! We had leftover chili, but I will definitely try this in the future!
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/caffeine-free and loving it!
