Key west pork loin, was pork loin slices marinated in soy sauce, honey, lime juice, garlic and olive oil, salt and pepper. The fam seemed to like it. I thought it was a way to salty. If I make it again, I won't use any salt. Just the soy.

Stick,

I dry fry mine first then marinade it. Much better than the spongy rubbery cubes I used to add to dishes.

I liked it - still did not overeat but was satisfied.

I want to try making some "quinoa tacos" soon. Saw the recipe on the budget bytes blog and thought I would make something completely different.

Hopefully tonight it's Italian, dining out with the family at St.Lucias.

I had to look that up, I love quinoa.

Is it this? - Quinoa Black Bean Tacos

Looks delish!

Yes Melissa, that would be the one. Not sure about the sliver of avocado - since it is just me I can see a much larger wedge of it on mine.

And since I don't necessarily eat vegan, cheese could be an option too.

Oh, and her cost per serving is higher than mine would be. I got the jumbo package of quinoa from Costco for $5.99 (instead of $8.99) a couple of weeks ago. I think it is well over a lb if memory serves me well.

That's a great price, it's expensive here.

Yes, definitely more avocado and cheese!

Even full price at Costco is a good deal.

Better start eating quinoa.

The quinoa-bean mix looks good just on its own! Must remember to make some for lunches next week (DH is not a big fan of quinoa so I mostly make it just for myself).

I will have frozen food. Not enough energy to cook a homemade meal.

OOOoooooOOooo...love roast beef!! Yummy!!

DD is ill today so I'm making her potato soup to make her all better. (kissing 15 year olds to make them all better doesn't work as well as when they are 3!! )
Maybe some rolls to go with it.

Tonight DH came at me with an almost puppy-dog look, holding some things that had been sitting in the fridge for a while - a can of crescent rolls and a package of Ballpark Turkey Franks. SO - pigs in blankets with a nice cheddar cheese, and a salad of chopped broccoli, tomato, capers, and very good olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The sublime and the ridiculous in one fell swoop, lol.

Oooh, fish tacos are my favorite.

Kara, sounds like something that would happen in this house, too.

I made zucchini boats last night. Cut zucchini in half, scoop out the insides and saute them with onion and garlic. Mix that with ground turkey and diced tomatoes. (I used the "chili style" tomatoes and pureed them.) Fill the hollowed out zucchini with the mixture, top with mozzarella and bake until bubbly. YUM. The kids devoured it.

So last night we were to go to Red Lobster with the fam to celebrate DH's birthday but he came down with the flu and at the last minute cancelled. SO...I ended up with chicken, potato wedges and fresh flat bread.

Today...so far I have been grazing. All bad stuff. Mini tacos, bbq chips, yougart...sure theres more but can't think what right now. Maybe I should make something real for dinner!! Suggestions??
