    Yes, for dinner. Because I'm a grown up.
    You can have cupcakes for dessert too if you want.

    Something a little different. Seared off three boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a little corn oil. Removed from pan. Put in one medium diced onion and sauteed it a little. Put the chicken back in on top of the onions. Used a slotted spoon to put a generous amount of Ro-Tel on top of each breast, and then put the rest of the Ro-Tel around them (used two cans). Simmered for a while to make sure the chicken was fully cooked. Added a generous amount of shredded Mexican blend cheese on top of each and covered so the cheese would melt. Served over rice. We decided it was a keeper.

    jennontheisland has it right. Dessert for dinner.

    Banana ice cream with chocolate sauce and a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie on the side.

    It's one of those days....

    On the way home from groceries we noticed that the indian food truck (that had replaced the taco truck) had a huge crowd outside it. So we fell in line and had aloo tiki chole and pirri puri with mango lassi.

    Ice cream was melted when we got home, but it was worth it.

    The clear winner here is Girl Scout cookies (though I chose it as a main course).

    chicken and mushrooms with artichoke hearts in a lemon oregano pan sauce, served over brown rice. Wish I'd had a girl scout cookie to go with it....

    I walk past Wolfgang Puck's every day on my way to work.

    Tonight, I bought myself a 12-ounce ribeye, salted and peppered it liberally, preheated a cast-iron skillet in the oven until it was screaming hot and threw the steak on it for about 10 minutes, turning it once. I let it rest for about 8 minutes while I sauteed some spinach in garlic. Then I scarfed it down with 6 ounces of Oregon Pinot Noir. I had four gingersnaps for dessert.

    Wolfgang Puck can bite me.

    If I'm having steak, I'm having it at home. More cost efficient.

    Certainly more cost-efficient than Wolfgang Puck's.

    That sounds great, except I would have finished the bottle of wine.

    The bottle of wine only had 6 oz. of wine left. Sadly.

    I am a firm believer that if you open a bottle of wine, you must finish it.

    We had scraps for dinner. We hardly ever have a real dinner on Sunday. My hubby goes to his mother's house with her grocery shopping for the week, and grazes while there.

    Crock-pot beef stew:

    The last of the potatoes from my garden, seven medium-sized ones, picked in September last year, and still very nice.
    Two golden beets
    One large rutabaga
    Three stalks of celery
    Six or seven carrots
    One black radish, peeled
    Two small parsnips
    One granny smith apple, peeled
    A dozen or so brussel sprouts
    Two leeks
    Half a white onion
    Ten or so crimini mushrooms
    3 pounds of cubed stew beef, marinated overnight in a tomato-basil marinade with squeezed orange juice and ground black pepper
    A standard package stew mix

    All the veggies chopped into bite-sized bits, the whole mess in a big crock-pot, slow-cooked all day. Three of us eating it, and it makes great leftovers. And a great way to use odds and ends of vegetables in the fridge.

    Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.
