Dinner was great…. I’ve been veering away from the cookbook in an effort to try to make my own creations and staples. So far, it’s working out good.

Mike bought a rotisserie chicken from Costco tonight…. which takes care of him and his son. And for me, I made a Cucumber Salad with Tomatoes, Red Onions and an Oil & Vinegar Dressing. Then I also blanched some Green Beans and tossed with Olive Oil, Celery Salt and Chopped Almonds. To finish it off, I backed some Potatoes in the Microwave. I know I should have used the oven…. but I thought about the Potatoes too late.

Cucumber Salad:
8 Small Cucumbers
2 Tomatoes
1/4 Red Onion
3Tbls Olive Oil
2Tbls White Wine Vinegar
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
Paprika
Salt
Celery Salt
Garlic Salt

Chopped Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Red Onions and toss with Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing and Seasonings.

Green Beans:
1/2Lbs Green Beans
Pinch of Celery Salt
2Tbls Olive Oil
1/2Cup Chopped Almonds

Wash and cut ends of Green Beans off and throw into pot of boiling water for 3 minutes or just long enough to blanche Green Beans. Drain and toss with Olive Oil and seasoning and top with chopped Almonds.

The meal was quick and easy… and enough to evoke conversation by Mike’s son again. He was very curious by my decision to not eat meat. I told him it’s my decision and it feels good for me… and during the meal I noticed he didn’t even touch the chicken. I don’t know if this is a trend or just he trying something new out.! 🙂

Vegetable Salad

Today's Vegetable Salad

Out running around this morning…Mike and I happened upon a great Mediterranean Restaurant in Downtown D.C. off L street and 20th. We walked in and the place wasn’t much to look at, but when you neared the back of the restaurant you saw all the food laid out. It looked great, the food was presented in buffet style with so many colors, salads, rices, and dips, it was great.

I actually put together a green salad with some Red Bell Peppers, Olives, Red Onions, and an Oil based dressing. Then I picked up a Rice dish, Eggplant dish, and a Mushroom, Green Bean Salad. Yah know, Mike told me before we went in, I think you’re going to like this place. It has all the foods you eat.! Well he was right. 🙂

Then tonight, it was great… Mike and I unloaded the car of drying cleaning and some shopping items. And immediately took to the kitchen to make our respective meals for dinner. He made his Gormazabzi (Meat, Bean, Onion Dish) with Rice and I made this great looking Vegetable Salad. I chopped up Asparagus, Broccoli, Red and Orange Bell Peppers, Sweet Peas, Carrots. I put together an Olive Oil and Vinegar dressing with seasonings like Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, Celery Salt, Thyme.
