Sunday Dinner



I'd like to make my own gnocchi some day. It's been about four months since I had that delicious dish in Chicago and can still taste it. I picked some up at Leon's and made a simple parmesan cheese sauce with cracked black pepper. The dish I had in Chicago also had parma ham and peas which I omitted since I couldn't find any in town that wasn't paper thin. So I grilled some chicken tenders last night to go with the pasta tonight and then forgot them. Putz! Oh well, we were plenty full of dumplings.

Our garden is overflowing with great things so a sauteed summer vegetable side sounded like a winner. Zucchini, yellow squash, onion, sweet pepper, basil, and garlic in a little olive oil. I debated throwing some cherry tomatoes in with the other veggies but held off. Maybe next time.

Have a great week everyone!

Thank you for the mug notice! I've been gone and wouldn't even have looked for a few days had you not said something.

And... apparently some dude from CA wanted the mug more than I did. I'm a wee bit upset that I didn't win it. It got pricey. I'm still waiting. How much did you pay for your Aku Tiki?

I gave $51 for mine. Pricey but it was worth it for local mugs. Now I wish I had one of each with the different wording on the back.
