A few days ago I bought 2 rotisserie chickens. We ate one that day and I just got around to deboning the other one. I mixed it up into a chicken pot pie with cornbread crust. Not sure what we'll have with it. Maybe nothing since it has everything in it with the mixed veggies and starchy cornbread and chicken. Have some fresh strawberries that may get eaten for dessert though.

I'm planning on fish tacos with mahi mahi, garden romaine and cilantro-lime sour cream. If I have the energy, I'll make Mexican rice with chorizo for a side.

I don't know what we are having. We are going to a neighbors for dinner and I was forbidden to bring anything.


One of the best features of this small retirement community (11 families have built and moved in) is how simple it is to have friends over or go to their houses for meals. They are all exceptional folks and fun too. It may take up to one minute to walk to their house.


I am taking a jar of chokecherry jelly.

Birthday meal for me tonight. We'll have pork loin roast encrusted with herbes de provence and garlic, fresh radish plate, fried green tomatoes, iced tea and...Italian cream cake for dessert. Yum!

We're having another serving of "when will we run out of leftovers???" tonight. I do believe I will re-purpose some of them into a version of Casserole du Leftovers tomorrow.
