Springtime Asparagus Pasta
It is so nice to be able to say Springtime in a post and recipe……….Springtime Asparagus Pasta………has a nice ring to it doesn’t it?
Without further ado ………..I need to say how proud I am of my husband Tim for all the beautiful pictures you see here on What the “Forks” for Dinner?. He has taken our pictures from ok to fabulous!

I am amazed by him everyday………so “Thank You” Honey for helping make this dream a reality…………Besides isn’t he cute??? (see below)

Vegetable Sandwich with Dill Sauce
Ahhh………the sweet smell of Spring. Today was the first day that makes me think we may have turned a corner, and that warmer weather is on the way. Of course, that would be on the last day of my Spring Break……..back to school tomorrow. It never fails that our Spring Break weather leaves much to be desired. But, I take solice in the fact that the school year is almost over, and Summer Break is close at hand.
So in a tribute to Spring………a Vegetable Sandwich with Dill Sauce. Dill always makes me think of Spring……..I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s just fresh, grassy, and green.
When I worked at the grocery store, the deli made a veggie sandwich that was really good, just several types of cheese, and a selection of fresh veggies. So this sandwich is a small tribute to that sandwich.
I think all sandwiches need some kind of sauce, wether is is just mayo, or something a little bit more adventurous ……….ya need some sauce!
Dill sauce is the just the right complement for this veggie sandwich. Made with greek yogurt, horseradish mustard, and a healthy dose of dill, it makes this the perfect topper for the veggies. Continue reading “Vegetable Sandwich with Dill Sauce”
Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
Spring Break……….a whole week of sunshine and spring like temperatures………if you live somewhere other than Northern Illinois. Woke up this morning to, you guessed it, more snow. The wind is blowing ninety miles an hour and it actually hurts your skin………that should not be happening on March 25th………..just saying!
So, since the weather is, well what it is, I have more time to cook. Tim and I have a mild affliction to Mexican food.
When we started dating again, we frequented a Mexican restaurant called La Mex, and when we dated all those years ago……for the story check out the Poor Mans Lobster post, we went to an Irish bar called Kelly’s that is still serving the best Mexican food.
For me, I still remember with longing, two places where my Mexican food affliction began. One was a place whose name I cannot for the life of me remember, but I remember the burritos ………….they were to die for. If anyone can enlighten me on the name, it was below the Poison Apple Disco, which eventually became Waldo Stubbs. My girlfriends and I would go to the Disco early to get a table, then go downstairs to have a bite to eat before the dancing began. But, alas it closed.
Enter Mexican restaurant #2……….Vince’s Taco Inn. Awww the memories. After a night of partying, when you really needed something to eat, the Mexican food at Vince’s was just the ticket. It was a small, quaint, little hole in the wall…….you know one of those local iconic places. The food was awesome, and it was amazing how many of us could fit in one of their booths.
