We finally decided on salmon with some sort of glaze/marinade I made up, stuffed potatoes, roasted broccoli and cauliflower.

Tonight will be ribeyes, baked potatoes with the fixings, english peas, and rolls. Would love to grill the steaks but with a foot of snow on the deck it's not worth having to dig the grill out, plus it's too darn cold. They are predicting a few flurries for tonight. Oh boy, just what we need. LOL I should go into the snow cone business.

I was not in the mood to cook tonight, so I had hotdogs, leftover potato salad, and doctored up canned baked beans.

last night was takeout italian.

i received a frantic call at work at 9am from dw that our little guy was sick with a skyrocketing fever, and she was exhausted from staying up all night with him. (i took an ambien and was out like a light. )

so i rushed home, only to find the rectal thermometer was broken and kept giving shockingly high readings. i told dw to test it, but she refused the first 2 suggestions . then i remembered you can take your temp brachially in the armpit...lol. yup, it was broken.

i bought a new one and a brandy new temporal infrared thermometer. turned out his fever wasn't that bad, around 100, but he was very cranky all day. dw had a hair appt. in the afternoon, so i just hung out with my boy taking his temp with the new toy, getting him to eat little meals when i could keep him interested in something long enough to sit still.

sooooo, we just ordered out from a local joint. broccoli salad, white beans and shrimp salad, a balboa sandwich with fries, and chicken and buccatini soup for my boy.
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

Last night I simmered up a nice pasta sauce using finely chopped carrots, celery, & onion, a pound of bulk uncased turkey Italian sausage, & a large 28 oz. can of whole peeled plum tomatoes, which I broke up roughly with a spoon. Served it over some Barilla Thin Spaghetti with a salad on the side.

Well, I'm a day late, but tonight I may try a new recipe of bow ties, asparagus & squash in cream sauce -- if i can round up all the ingredients I need. If not, leftover eggplant parm over linguine.

Your dish sounds much nicer to me than spinach and ricotta ravioli. I'm always disappointed by shop-bought ravioli. I bet you'll really enjoy your meal.

As for us, we'll be having left-over lamb stew with grilled courgette and steamed new potatoes. Apples for after if we feel like it.

Edited: working so hard I've got my days and dates all muddled up! Hope you enjoyed your supper Corazon.
