We had an early dinner. There is this little Mexican restaurant not too far from us. It’s a take out or eat outside place but the food is delicious. Every one of us ordered chicken enchiladas, of course Alex Martin and Alicia shared theirs.
Then when we came home somehow another carrot cake appeared in the fridge.

Easy dinner - leftover linguine with previously roasted broccoli and prev sauteed mushrooms in a white sauce
I forgot to type that I'm also adding prev sauteed mixed sweet peppers to that white sauce - which is your basic half and half and some butter cooked down a little.

red meat is healthier than chicken though. Buy bison if you can get it,
or organic grass fed beef. Chicken - even organic one (is not really) is just
full of hormones and what not.

veggie pastas like this tend to be yummy
will have to try the eggplant version
It really was delicious even the picky boys ate it. It had just enough heat and the cream gave it a wonderful flavor....I think I will start using it like a pasta with different kinds of things added to it as well. The texture was surprisingly good!

We stayed in last night and had spaghetti with meat sauce, that’s what the kids wanted.
Tonight we’re all going out to dinner and since it’s my turn to choose I think I want to try Okura Robata Grill and Sushi Bar in Laguna Beach.
We never did make it to Okura Robata Grill because I forgot to make a reservation, we stopped but the wait time was 40 minutes. You can’t sit and wait 40 minutes with three kids so we drove to another sushi place near the house and ordered a few rolls, soup and salad and chicken teriyaki. The food is always good but they tend to over do it with the teriyaki sauce, but the kids like to dump their rice in it.

We’ve all been invited to the Queen’s house for dinner. We’re having steaks on the grill with baked potatoes and corn on the cob. I’ll bet her husband will be doing the cooking, she still can’t boil water.
I made polenta again. This time I took boneless chicken thighs and seasoned them well and coated in flour then saute'd in olive oil - then took stock I had made from the bones (because I cut the bones out and made an amazing stock) and added to the pan with onions and garlic, fresh lemon juice and garlic...and made a sauce to go over the creamy polenta. I nestled the thighs on top with and served it with a nice ceasar salad. Pinot grigio to drink...
