Looks great!
I really like guacamole but for some reason, I never buy it.

Back when I was in post grad school, I used to buy it and eat it all the time. I used to grow alfalfa sprouts too.

I really need to start eating more salads, and including avocados in my diet.

Albertson's made-in-house guacamole is the only store-bought guac I like.

Tonight's dinner - first time preparing it -

The only sauce my one grandson will eat is Classico's Vodka sauce. I must admit, it is a good choice. Shop Rite doesn't carry it but Stop and Shop does. I had a short shopping list, the most important item was skinless chicken breasts.

I decided to go to Stop and Shop so I could get that sauce, I know that we are running low. So I got a little this, and a little that (yummm blueberry vanilla goats cheese) and certainly the sauce.

They had skinless boneless chicken breasts for $2.99 and only $1.99 with a digital coupon. There was none left. :(

So I spent $47.00 and didn't get the chicken.

Once again, I hit the freezer, and pulled out a baggie of frozen filleted chicken breast.

Tonight we had Chicken parmigiana over some kind of curly pasta.

Sorry no pictures. It hit our plates and was half devoured before I thought of getting my phone.

I love my tools.
Some are out in my shed, some are in my kitchen, flashlights are all over. :)

I have three stainless steel mixing bowls that are often called into duty when I do the three step- flour - Egg wash - bread crumb coating. They are so easy to clean, that they are often cleaned, dried, and put away, before the last piece of chicken is finished cooking.

Taralli, Italian crackers made with wine, olive oil and spice of choice, traditionally fennel as these are. Impossible to get decent ones here so decided to make my own. Great with vino!

Yesterday my daughter called and asked "Dad, what do you want to do for dinner? I'll be home in about 35 minutes, and am starving!"

Some parboiled three color little potatoes, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and some olive oil, and roasted in the toaster/convection oven.
Boiled fresh carrots (in salted and coconut sugared water).
Store bought mac and cheese.
And quick thawed thin sliced boneless chicken breast cooked on the grill with some "Sweet Baby Ray's" BBQ sauce.

Of course the complimentary glass of Red wine. :)

The Mrs whipped up some tuna cakes same as salmon cakes. I prefer plain salmon cakes but the tuna (from a can) was kinda bland so I'd reccomend spicing those up. Three cans of drained tuna and some bread crumbs made four 3" cakes. We use canola oil for cooking them.

Add some corn on the cob, unsweetened apple sauce and iced spring water to complete the package. Mrs Fixer had sweet tea and no corn.

Me too. Used to be the skin was my favorite part until they invented boneless/skinless thigh.

Tonight was crispy hot dogs and medium rare burgers
