For salad I tossed together some kale along with grapes, Parrano cheese, sliced almonds, grape tomatoes, and sliced red onion. I dressed this with a little lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. It was a very tasty salad and stood a good chance of being far better than the main course for the night's dinner.
I had the task of using up the remaining lasagna leftovers from last week. What I had leftover was a good amount of roasted vegetables and some fresh pasta sheets. I decided to brown a little garlic in olive oil and butter then chop up the roasted zucchini, eggplant, yellow, and red peppers. There were also some kalamata olives in the fridge that I tossed in the pan with a little white wine and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
A nice crispy white wine would have gone nicely with tonight's dinner. I made Jen a white wine spritzer with the remaining wine and chose, myself, to opt for beer. I had this Monty Python's Holy Grail Ale from Black Sheep Brewery. It was a tasty ale that had a wheaty, bready taste to it with a strong finish of gimmicky marketing.
