Chicken Francaise

Fine dining at home.

Creamy Portabella Tortellini

Migas

Eggs for dinner is always fun, but throw in some tomatoes and tortillas and you’ve got a full-blown fiesta on your hands. The next time I make it, I will try to get some pictures of the finished product. I guess I was too excited to eat it this time.

George made this up. Now, I make it more, probably.
