Long day at work, DH taking his nap before work, I think I'll make the kids some scrambled eggs. I'm not hungry.

Pork stew left over from last night even better the next day, we had our favorite oriental buffet today and pigged out on crab legs, shrimp, mussels, clams, crawfish, and sushi!

I sauteed baby bellas and some red peppers - I roasted asparagus, carrots, and new potatoes. As these items got done I threw them into a bowl with some fresh baby spinach. The heat wilted the spinach. I sauteed some chicken then mixed that with everything else and added some fresh cut tomato chunks and added a few Parmigiano Reggiano slices - (I think I spelled that right)

Elf,
they are just marinated in evoo,crushed garlic,freshly chopped Italian parsley, salt and cracked black pepper..I add just enough evooto make them shiney about 2 Tab.parsley,2-3 cloves garlic, the rest to taste per 1 can of garbanzo's...This is how DH's mom did them so they are a staple for every party and I love to use them in an antipasto tray. Just scatter them about the peppers and olives...

We fired up the grill for the first time this year yesterday. Just some burgers, baked beans, corn, fries. And strawberry shortcake for dessert.
