I have used the soaking liquid for rice and also in place of water in some vegetarian dishes that call for beans. I usually rinse my beans first and then soak them so it is cleaner.

I have some fresh pasta from the bronx that I have to use ASAP. I will probably heat up some of my Mom's "sunday sauce" to go over it... its good to go home sometimes.... that is something I cannot replicate.

I like to have fajitas with Spanish rice on the side

Had chicken fajitas and used your recipe GotGarlic. I always do. When I first started looking for fajita recipes I stumbled across yours and stuck to it, we all love it. Thanks.

Someone should link that post here. I tried finding the recipe but the search is pretty broad.

I was on my own since Buck was at his regular dinner meeting.

I had a grilled cheese/ham sandwich on homemade pain de mie, potato chips and some green tomato pickles. It was a good meal and I'm "just right" full. Maybe I'll have some of my chocolate Easter bunny for dessert if I want something sweet.

Sorry, Luvs, to hear you have the flu. Hope you are better soon.

I had no plans to photograph tonight's meal as it was just ham, but DH thought it looked so nice he took a picture and convinced me to share it. I baked a small ham as it was just the two of us, and was going to do potatoes but I had the leftover rice so just did that, and steam-fried the asparagus. I made a quick glaze for the ham using pineapple chunks, a bit of the juice, some dried cranberries and demerrara sugar with a tough of cinnamon, clove and dried mustard. For a last minute add-on, I was quite pleased.

can you verify if the one linked here a few posts past this one of yours is the recipe you're referring to. I have a baked chicken in the freezer and thought it sounded like a good use for it.
