Good Sunday to you.

I've decided to do hubby's favorite dinner. it's easy, so stupidly easy, but it's something he really loves.
hamburger patty with lettuce. that's it.
no dressing on the lettuce, no bun or condiments.

I made Baked Chicken that I brushed with EVOO infused with garlic. I sprinkled on fresh chopped rosemary and thyme, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and then dipped my fingers in lemon juice and flicked the juice onto the chicken.

On the side we had:

-Roasted small red potatoes that I also coated with the EVOO that I infused with garlic, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper and freshly chopped rosemary. We like to dip these in sour cream, that I add chopped chives to, when were eating them.

-Buttered/Salted frozen corn......the fresh around here isn't quite ready.

-Cucumbers that we dipped in a poppy seed dressing

-Fresh tomatoes

-Bread and Butter Pickles

-Lemonade

Tonight I sauteed a couple of pounded floured chicken breasts in extra-virgin olive oil, & then sauced them with the pan drippings mixed with some fresh lemon juice & white wine cooked down a little bit.

Served them with Swiss Chard sauteed in some extra-virgin olive oil & Trader Joe's Garlic-Infused olive oil, along with a handful of pine nuts, salt, & a dash of crushed red pepper flakes.

Yesterday ( 23rd here!) was my birthday and we ate out for lunch but for dinner I prepared apple marinated pork steaks, then panfried them, deglazed the pan with calvados, added some of our gorgeous ' 6 kilo's of apples in every bottle' apple syrup, some grain mustard and cream. Cooked down a little, and served with plain old mashed spuds, steamed broccoli with lemon butter, parsleyed carrots and a baked kumara cos' I love em'!!
For dessert we had backup nougat semifreddo with some warmed manuka honey, from a function we catered day before. I eat a LOT of nougat semifreddo. lolol. I think I always get more than we need prepared just so I can get to have some. Im sure a pyschologist could have much fun with that penchant of mine.

2 bowls of turkey noodle soup at work , a salad of baby field greens with sweet red bell pepper, red onion, tomato, shredded white summer turnip, and snow crab topped with a basil vinegrette with extra balsamic vinegar when I got home. When you are the evening cook, there is not much time for a real dinner.

Frozen T.V. Dinners - what a blast from the past!!! I can't remember the last time I had one.

Although we didn't have them often, as kids growing up on L.I., NY, my dad - who commuted 2 hours each way from Manhattan - was frequently very late getting home from work, & mom would, once in awhile, give us TV dinners - which, of course, my brother & I, like all kids, LOVED. To us it was a special treat. We loved all the little compartments - especially in the turkey ones - turkey & stuffing, peas, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce - even a tiny dessert!!

However, after I visited the NY World's Fair & was introduced to Mexican food - only Mexican TV dinners would do for me after that - lol!!! A couple of meagre enchiladas, refried beans, & spanish rice, & I was in heaven!!!
