Sunday Dinner



In my opinion,
anything that
goes well with
these ingredients
is guaranteed
delicious.





Every once in a while I get a craving for a Cafe Rio Salad that must be satisfied. I made Jill's recipes for Cafe Rio Pork and Tomatillo dressing, my homemade salsa and guac, a new recipe for Chipotle's lime-cilantro rice, and corn tortilla strips that I fried up to put on top. All of these were served over romaine lettuce with black beans, sour cream, cilantro, and fresh limes as well. It worked out nicely because I made the pork and dressing on Friday night and we had tacos, and then on Sunday I prepared the rest of the ingredients, so I didn't have to prepare all this food in one day. and I also served fresh squeezed lemonade. I made a syrup with sugar and water, let it cool and then mixed in fresh lemon juice and then mixed that with ice water. I'm not sure it was worth the effort. Country Time makes a decent product.

Feast your eyes on this delicious homemade peanut butter cheesecake that Dan and Jolyn brought. It was SO GOOD. I have been having a couple bites of it with every meal since last night! Beautiful presentation, too.

Where in the world do you find the time to cook like a pro? I feel like its all I can do to get some chicken in the crockpot. And I cant play my "extra stress from my Son" card on you either. Wow... thats all I can say.
