There are no unwanted leftovers at my house…

Ok, so you always hear the moans and groans when asked “What’s for dinner?” and the answer is ‘Leftovers.” But not if the dinner is so good, that the leftovers are fought over.

Sunday night we had the summer dinner to die for (we were 5 adults and 3 children).

Grilled Dijon/basil chicken (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/CHICKEN-WITH-DIJON-AND-BASIL-50042561)
Grilled zucchini and onions, marinated in garlic and balsamic vinegar
Grilled Asian eggplant
Wild rice with wheat berries, dried cherries, nuts, and a sweet soy sauce dressing
Beet salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, feta and walnuts tossed in a home-made honey/tamari vinaigrette
Green salad with tomatoes, arugula and cucumbers tossed with a home-made raspberry vinaigrette

So on Monday I enjoyed this meal again, twice. At lunch I had a half of a Dijon chicken breast sandwich, topped with bacon (leftover from breakfast) with zucchini, onion and munster cheese—YUM! For dinner I just made a plate of all the stuff from dinner again.

And the icing on the cake—my mom took the children out for burgers—so I finished my book, took a shower, and ate dinner alone on the porch.

Pork chops, pork tenderloin, and pizza dough in the fridge—stay tuned.

Life is good. Food is good. And I’m full until the next meal.
