No plans for dinner?

You can whip together this Mediterranean Lemony Calamari with stewed tomato in less time than it takes to chill the wine.

"You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space." Johnny Cash
