Oh, but that looks good. It was boating night. Fast food on the way home.

Dinner was cast iron pan fried sirloin steak and mac and cheese (no picture).

I made mini lemon meringue pies and mini cherry pies for dessert.

All our times have come. Here, but now they're gone.
Seasons don't fear the reaper.
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain.
We can be like they are.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Fancy, Kayelle!

I grocery shopped and had no leftovers. *gasp* What was I thinking? Put the idea of take-out in my back pocket and made smothered baked potatoes. There really is a tater under all that broccoli, ham, and cheeses.

everyone's food looks and sounds great!

Very busy day today, but I had the where-with-all
to think ahead and set up my Teriyaki Chicken thighs,
Cucumber Kim Chee (or Kimchi, whatever) and a fresh
pot of steamed White Rice.
Found a new Furikake at TJ's which is just as good
as our ole' faithful standby, YAY!

I made some of my Roasted Root Vegi Bisque. I used carrots, rutabaga (or as my FIL called it, rutabugger), celeriac, onion, garlic, and a large cayenne pepper. I have never used fresh cayenne before, so I was cautious. I added bits of it to the pot until I got to the heat level I thought was good. It used about 3/4 of a 6-7 inch long pepper. I couldn't find a can of coconut milk, so I used water and creamed coconut. I added a bit of thyme and some salt. Oh my. That soup is so tasty and filling. I started with just that bowl of soup, then went back later for a smaller serving and some slices of chorizo and a dry Italian salami. As my husband would put it, "happy tummy".
