Pan Seared Lemon Butter Grouper with Tomato Basil Cappello’s Fettuccini & Sautéed Spinach

The idea behind this Pan Seared Grouper, Roasted Tomato & Basil Cappello's Fettuccini with Sautéed Spinach dinner was both pre-meditated and a little on the fly. One of my all-time favorite meals in life (really not sure why it sticks out so vividly) is from a work trip to Sarasota 3 or 4 years ago [...]

Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde Carnitas

Leftover Hodgepodge Lunch

One drastic change from my old corporate schedule is that I'm now usually home for lunch and often not for dinner.
