    RFB - lol sounds good. In my book, any night is a good night to have pasta instead of whatever is planned!

    Nakabi, I think we are having the leftover pizza tomorrow or Wed. Come on by! :) So I have to ask, where in the world did you get 5 lbs of saffron for $30? And do they do mail order?

    Nakabi- I love that you are able to find such great deals on such lovely ingredients!

    Jdouglas- ok, so I ended up having some leftover pasta instead, to stretch our meals (that yummy roasted Brussels sprouts and green bean pasta). And I'll be making them tonight! I'll let you know how they turn out :-)

    jdouglas-yes, I was so excited to get my saffron! Only had about 10 threads left after making the tajine last week so I was using it wisely, so to speak.
    Your white pizza sounds delicious! Let me know what night I should be over to eat :)
    Lamb chops should be making an appearance this week since I bought 6 chops for a grand total of $10!!!

    RFB, I just read your dinner menu for last night - yum! How did the spring rolls turn out?

    Nakabi, what an incredible deal on the saffron!! Wow! Great job, my friend :)

    The last few nights, our menus were a bit jumbled. On Sat we had burgers on the grill with tomato salad, and last night we had white pizza with prosciutto - yum. We ended up with an entire pizza leftover, so we'll be having that one night.

    If the rain holds off, we may be having grilled chicken over a Caesar salad or possibly a Cobb salad with grilled chicken. If we get rained out, it may turn into chicken piccatta instead with a mixed green salad and rice.

    Grilled chicken breast topped with a mango, cilantro, & peach chutney, saffron rice (bought 5 pounds of saffron for $30 which is an amazing price!), steamed asparagus, and grilled romaine lettuce.
