30 August - What's on the dinner plate mate?

Wow, not dinner thread yet. We're just having pizza and salad tonight. I don't want to cook and have leftovers since we are leaving tomorrow for a long weekend vacation and won't be around to finish them off.

Spaghetti with basil pesto. We prefer it made with pistachios in place of pine nuts. A tomato and basil salad dressed with EVOO and balsamic vinegar will accompany.

I have enough okra, eggplant, and tomatoes to make this. I am adding chick peas instead of the beef.

Thai okra-eggplant-tomato curry

DH is home after half a week away. We'll have his fave - spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic bread and salads.

Whew, it's a hot one out there today. Luckily the grill is in the shade.

It's grilled chix fajitas and grilled corn for dinner. I'm seriously thinking of putting some corn in the salsa fresca too. And the fajitas are really soft shell corn tacos since I only have jalapenos, no other peppers.

Sounds great--go for it--add the corn to the salsa fresca--I often do.

DH brought home an extra grilled tenderloin from his lunch, and we'll have homegrown green beans, cherry toms, cukes, and pepper strips with Ranch dip
