Yesterday I made halibut in parchment for dinner, over cheese jalapeño grits. It was delicious. I had some leftovers. I thought a tostado sounded perfect.
I put a flour tortilla in the oven to heat up, instead of frying it.
At 400% for 4 minutes each side, turns out crunchy and cooked through. Then I took the grits and cut a grit cake and fried it.
Then, I put on some baby spinach and baby arugula and some gorgeous tomatoes…
I made a dressing out of sour cream and some salsa, put on the halibut and dressed it.
It doesn’t look great dressed but man did it taste great!
Guess what’s coming up this Friday, Chinese New Year….
This was from Chinese New Year 2010.
This year is year of the Dog!
Happy New Year!!!
The beauty of the Rotisserie Chicken is all you can get out of it. You buy it for dinner, chicken with a side and salad.
The Next Day: Now the fun part, pull all of the rest of the chicken off the bone. Put the bones and skin in a dutch oven and start cleaning out the fridge. I added leftover onions, and peppers, broccoli stems, celery, carrots, the liquid I used in steaming veggies from the week and you will need add some water too. . This needs to cook for hours. while this is cooking make a salad for lunch with some baby spinach and arugula and top with some of the chicken with a light avocado/ ranch dressing.
Strain the broth, for dinner, use some of the broth with carrots and celery and orzo and some more of the pulled chicken. Delicious.
Now I have some leftover soup. Broth in the freezer and refrigerator. I still can make a chicken salad tomorrow. That’s a lot of meals out of one chicken!

They have only met once, but they are destined to be best buddies! This is Bodhi…
Look at that face! Don’t you want to eat it up. My neighbor, Josi, has adopted a new dog and he is so sweet and smart!
Loves to roll! Love this dog!
(Yes they moved but only about 10 minutes away!)
This is one of my favorite shots of Punkin on the massage table…next…
Yes, it was yesterday but I had to tell you about something I ate. I was craving a caesar salad. I went to Eataly, an Italian restaurant near my house. I had a really bad experience there but it had been a while, so, I thought I would give them another try. Okay, I got in and ordered a cup of the pasta fagioli and the margherita pizza. Not a caesar salad I know but look…
Words cannot tell you how great this pizza is. The crust is perfect, just a little sweet and salty! Really fresh smooth mozzarella cheese, the basil is what makes it though.
I know people think a pizza can’t be great without pepperoni or some other meat, but just try it. I promise it is great!
