Delish, and I am stuffed. (Report on wine found in another thread!)
Congratulations Paul!

Mrs. ceeaton and I (ceeaton) have our 20th in the middle of May (gotta look up the date, think it is the 18th, but it might be the 17th). Chances are we'll end up in a dive bar somewhere eating big burgers and splitting a pitcher or three of cheap beer, then calling our 18 yr old son to come pick us up and drive us home (which would be quite entertaining to him).

Congrats on the upcoming!

To avoid any embarrassment, we planned ahead and took the bus!

Actually, might do it to let him know that it is quite acceptable and even preferable to ask for a ride after imbibing. You know, teaching kids, though at 18 he ain't no kid anymore (plus he's taller than I am) (and I know that is a double negative, but I'm from aimless country, ya know) (and the correct usage around these parts is "he ain't none kid no more, uins knowsez").

One Pan Mediterranean Pork Risotto!

Or how to use up what you have in the fridge on a Thursday night!

Had lots of pork loin left over from the weekend so took 3 nice slices of that, some onion, shiitake shrooms I found on closeout today, garlic, bacon, and then worked it all together and added some chicken broth, white wine, fresh spinach, cherry tomatoes and topped with parmesan. Tuned out pretty darn good for winging it off script but then its hard to go wrong with SMOKED meats!
