Tonight's Dinner

We had Ahi Tuna, Hawaiian rice, and brown sugar/honey glazed carrots. I marinated the Tuna in teriyaki sauce that was blended with some pineapple juice and then grilled to rare. The rice was the brown frozen rice from Trader Joes (plain). I chopped up some red onion and pineapple and sauteed with the rice. I tossed in some toasted almonds. The carrots were baby carrots that have been quartered, placed in foil pouches and sprinkled with a bit of brown sugar and honey, closed up and then grilled.

1 lime
tsp of chopped garlic
salt and pepper
Marinated in Tequila Lime and Grilled
Whole Wheat Tortilla Shells

Black Bean Salad
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 can corn (rinsed and drained) [I used frozen but the equivalent of 1 can]
1/2 yellow tomato diced
1/2 red tomato diced
1 small green pepper (home grown so very small) diced
1 small spicy pepper (very finely diced)

Few splashes of hot sauce

Friday's Dinner

I made BBQ Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts. These were marinated in lemonade concentrate and then coated in Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce and Grilled to perfection.
On the side were grilled onions marinated in a bit of red wine and some Montreal Steak Seasoning (One of my favorite Secret ingredients).
I sliced zucchini into long thin strips covered in Olive Oil, garlic, and Salt and Pepper.
I grilled both the onions and the zucchini along side the chicken.
I sliced whole wheat bread in half and topped with a little tomato tapenade that was given to me as a gift.
