I took the carcass,leftover bones,skin and pan drippings from last nights chicken and made a broth,put the chunked up chicken and some frozen mixed veggies and called it chicken stew,and I made a small batch of biscuits and that was dinner.I have missed it for sure and there's leftovers!

I defrosted a couple of tilapia fillets but my mind skittered around how to cook them. Should I make beer batter and fry? Or do something Chinese? Or, or, or . . . By now it was edging up on dinner time. O.K. I'll invent something.

Line broiler pan with tin foil and brush with oil. Plop fillets down. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, sprinkle with some of Ken's red wine and olive oil salad dressing, bread crumbs, a dribble of oil. Broil.

Turn to pot of boiling water and dump in some tricolor rotini. While that cooks (9 minutes) I sauteed some cut up baby bella mushrooms. When the mushrooms are almost done add some cut up sweet red pepper and red onion. All a little teeny-tiny bit more butter, put the lid on, shake up, simmer.

Plate up fish (bread crumbs nicely browned, fish cooked through). Drain pasta and toss with mushrooms/pepper/onion. Plate up in a modest size bowl. Serve.

Not bad.

Yesterday, made some bacon! It has been years since I had bacon! I scarfed down half of it!!

Today, I will put some of the bacon, in a salad~~ Yum!
and probably eat the rest, as I assemble it.... If not sooner than that!
