What's for dinner?

I did not post a menu for this week because we are going out of town and I am just cooking up whatever we have on hand so I don't have to come home to a stinky fridge. I have some bacon that I bought and need to cook up so tonight we are having one of Expert's favs.

BLT Wraps
2 tomatoes
4 (10 inch) tomato tortillas (or spinach or flour, whatever you prefer. We like the tomato ones)
2 cups mixed salad greens (or just rip up some lettuce, whatever you have on hand)
1/3 cup ranch salad dressing
12 slices bacon, fried crisp (or I guess you could use bacon bits)

Dice the tomatoes.
Spread a thin coating layer of mayo on each tortilla, about 1 to 2 teaspoons per tortilla. Combine the tomatoes, salad greens and ranch dressing and mix well. Spread this mixture on each tortilla so that it runs lengthwise across tortilla. Top with three pieces of bacon. Roll up each tortilla lengthwise. Serve.

Note: If you like avocado, you might want to add some to the salad greens and tomatoes.
I usually make either tri-color pasta or tomato pasta with this.

Tomato pasta
1 (16-oz) package pasta (any kind you fancy) cooked according to package directions
1 tablespoon butter or oil
3 or 4 green onions (tops and bottoms), chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14.5 oz) can Italian tomatoes
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Heat the oil or butter in large frying pan over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic in the fat until the onions are clear and the garlic is barley tender. Add the tomatoes, and continue cooking until heated thoroughly. Stir in the cooked pasta and sprinkle with cheese.

Note: We don't eat mushrooms in this house, but if mushrooms don't make you hurl you might like adding some sliced mushrooms in with the onion and garlic.
