Feeling much better today, so I made a supper. Asparagus with prosciutto, lonzo, chèvre, pumpkin seeds, honey, and EVOO and a leafy salad with vinaigrette, and beef tourndos, with the bacon stripped off and cooked separately. There was also leftover rice pilaf from the Greek resto we ordered from earlier in the week.

The asparagus was sautéed in EVOO and then drizzled with lemon juice. I strongly doubt that I will ever boil or steam asparagus again. It's so much nicer sautéed (and probably also grilled or roasted). No more soggy, waterlogged asparagus for me.

Okay, I'm tired of fighting with this forum software, which is letting me upload two files, but only keeps one of them for the post. I'll post the other photo in another comment.

Ate lunch at a place with a bakery and bought baguettes. The market had PEI black mussels, so we got a pound and a half. Sauteed garlic and onion in olive and butter, then added chicken/veg stock, salt, pepper, and parsley.



Glass of Mud House New Zealand sauvignon blanc.

In heaven with my feets hangin' out!

I had just enough leftovers for supper- good thing since I ran lots of errands today.

Making fresh leftovers starting tomorrow.

Ran errands in the heat so, we settled for green salads and crackers.

Apple pie was dessert.

Grilled pink salmon, grilled walleye filets, taco salad, sautéed green beans. It was all yummy. The walleye was cleaned and fileted with my grandsons watching. I need a sharper fillet knife.
