My quasi-homemade meal

Tonight was dinner and a movie, so I threw together something "quasi-homemade". I refuse to use "semi" because of that bloody Auntie SLop show. Check out tonight's dinner:

Fresh wild-caught salmon from Alaska, Buttoni's pork/parmesean ravioli, Buttoni's vodka cream sauce, and a little lump of fresh whole milk mozzarella. I overgrilled the fish, but it went well with the vodka sauce. The sauce was jazzed up with onions, rosemary, garlic, and thyme. This isn't a bad meal, but just because I can assemble it doesn't mean I'm competent enough to have my own cooking show. Ahem, SLop. The non-seafood variation of this meal was a chicken breast sliced 3/4 of the way along the flat side. The meat was spread open like a book and filled with onions, rosemary, garlic, and thyme (whatever was left went into the sauce). It was closed to sandwich the spices and grilled.

The topper to the meal was this gem from Costco:

Mexican Coca-cola is made with sugar, not corn syrup. The difference is phenomenal. Case of 24 was around $20, so it's expensive. However, the flavor, plus the awesome glass bottles, are almost worth the cost.

Dessert was Sara Lee butter pound cake with macerated strawberries. Everything was so quasi-homemade that I felt like I should probably match my outfit to the drapes. Next up, tablescapes... oh, shoot me... can you tell that I really detest SLop?
