Celia - hooray for Sauvignon Blanc for lunch. I like the Bonterra cab made with organic grapes, but I haven't tried the SB yet. Sauvignon Blanc is my favorite white wine this year.
Special - yum, yum - steak AND lobster. Congrats on having a 31 year old. My son turned 50 in May, but as we live in different states there was not celebration. In any case I'm not sure he wanted to acknowledge 50.
Beaver - I too LOVE the salad kits. Last night I had the Spinach Miso Crunch and added fresh mushrooms and hard boiled eggs. It's the only kit that I eat the entire thing in one meal. Usually a salad kit lasts me two main meals because I add whatever is hanging around in the fridge - cucumbers, avocados, tomatoes - and leftover protein - rotisserie chicken, or salmon or...
Lunch will be the final serving of deja vue pork fried rice. I won't be sorry to finish this batch. I wasn't at all excited by the rice I used this time. Seeds of Change Jasmine White. Normally I'd boil up a batch of rice, but this was a test to see how the 90 second rice worked. While the rice was good hot right out of the microwave, even then it was hard to "fluff". Once it cooled in the fridge before frying it really stuck in clumps.
I've been eating the Olathe (CO) sweet corn every day since it's only available a couple of weeks a year. Delicious. Bought a wonderful cantaloupe for $0.67 last week. Tomorrow I think I'll pull down my Spiralizer and make zucchini noodles. I like them with just butter (or in salads for that matter) but will probably pull a cup of spaghetti sauce with meat out of the freezer to add.
I know one of the reasons I'm not cooking is the heat. I've been cooking a pork tenderloin or a couple of chicken breasts once a week and adding any leftovers to salads or rice or pasta for the rest of the week. I did cut out a recipe for an "Egg Roll Bowl" with rotisserie chicken that I may try this week. And I'm considering a pasta bowl with salmon & dill.
It's just about time for the once a year Hatch Chili harvest !!! Growers are worried because it's all done by hand that the workers aren't coming in.
Carole - forgot to add how jealous I am of your temperatures. After rain all night Saturday, it was 75 degrees when I headed out to walk Sunday morning. I wondered if I needed to look for a jacket (LOL) but it quickly went back up to 96.
