Before I get onto dessert, dinner turned out pretty good – although I overcooked the pork roast, even though I took it out 10 degrees before done – it was flavorful but just a bit too tough – everything else was great though!  I was going to make a balsamic glaze, but realized I am REALLY low on balsamic vinegar – on to plan B!

In my cooking light magazine they had a recipe for an asparagus salad with soft poached eggs and prosciutto – I stole the dressing from that recipe – it was so good!

Mix together:

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh grated parmigaino-reggiano cheese
  • 1 tsp. garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cracked pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

I cooked the asparagus in the microwave using the “fresh veggie” setting.  They are still crisp tender this way – then I finished them off on the grill with the lemon glaze:

Looks good though - I may have had the grill too hot in the beginning

Then I made garlic bread – crusty bread with butter, fresh minced garlic and Italian seasoning:

I grilled it butter side down first, then flipped it so that both sides were crispy

after the asparagus, the bread was the best thing on my plate!

I ate 1/4 of the twinkie and it was heaven in my mouth!  The filling melted into the cake and it was stunning!  Joe really loved the angel food cake too!

And since I had fried zucchini as my vegetable today, it was only fitting to have fried banana slices as my fruit drizzled in caramel sauce!

the banana melted like butter!

I am so tempted to get on the scale tomorrow, but feel I should wait until July 1 – that leaves me with like 8 days to redeem myself from today!  I have a feeling Jillian is going to kick my a$$ tomorrow!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Sunday and were able to share Father”s Day with your papa if you could.  See you tomorrow!
