    I pulled some ground meat from the freezer. Not sure what I'll do with it yet.

    We laughed because we know him pretty well and so we gave him dinner on cue. We grilled steaks, fried potatoes, made a salad from mostly garden greens. And broccoli fresh broccoli from the garden.
    That is a sign of GREAT hosts. I aspire to be the person who can whip up a great meal at the drop of a hat for guests.

    When we went to Minneapolis for the weekend for our nephew's wedding, we were going to go out for dinner the next night with my brother and SIL. But, being that it was Jan 2 in Minneapolis, it was snowing and freezing. So last minute we decided to eat at their place. They grabbed a couple of filet mignon from their freezer and put together something similar to what you did (minus the garden-fresh veggies) and it was great and seemingly effortless on their part.

    I would have freaked out and suggested pizza--delivered of course.

    This is making me think it might be a good idea to have the ingredients for a quick, unexpected guest(s) meal handy. It used to just be pasta, but since we aren't eating that these days, I would like to come up with something else. But, as you say, there's always pizza!

    Nice salad, following our main meal at brunch at son's house. He made an asparagus frittata.

    Ooh, that reminds me that I have local asparagus to use up. Maybe tomorrow's lunch or dinner will be a frittata. Tonight's was leftover Asian beef lettuce wraps.

    A salad of baby red and green lettuces, tomatoes, chives from my garden, roasted red peppers, Mexican three cheese blend and guacamole.

    Wild strawberries from my yard for dessert.
