8-18 Dinner Plans

Starting things off with a Spinach salad as an appetizer (topped with grated smoked pepper cheese, bacon and sesame ginger dressing) with some chicken wings fried crispy with an Sesame/soy/sweet chili glaze (extra garlic of course) and some good beers.

What are you having?

Sore muscles in my back today so easy does it.

Defrosting a container of hot and sour soup. SO will go get us some egg rolls to go along with the soup.

Chicken Breasts en Papillote - don't have parchment, so will do in foil -- chicken breasts, artichokes hearts, pesto, white wine & halved cherry tomatoes. Penne on the side. Cheesecake from the bakery.

We are going out for supper with friends to a nearby Italian resto. It's walking distance, so we are having cocktails here first.

It'll either be chicken nuggets or chicken wings. Not sure of sides yet. If nuggets I'll do up some fries. If wings, maybe green beans. Out of greens for salads and don't feel like hitting the grocery store on a Sat.

Tonight is taco night. I've got salsa fresca (or, if you prefer, Pico de Gallo) (garden-fresh tomatoes, onions, sweet pepper, jalapeno, garlic, fresh cilantro, oregano, lime juice, a bit of cumin, and lime juice, naturally), fillings are ground chicken with salsa verde (I have a few jars left from last year--Labour Day is when I make it every year, so ... it contains corn, tomatillos, garlic, lime, cilantro, onion -- and I think that is it -- I'd have to pull the recipe out), for the beef I have 2 T of my homemade tomato paste, chipolte chili powder, garlic, onion powder, a pinch of ginger, hot paprika, onion, a splash of Frank's Hot Sauce). The wraps are (1) corn tortillas to go with the chicken and (2) kale tortillas (I'm sort of following this recipe: http://vegweb.com/recipes/spinach-tortillas). DH forgot to bring lettuce from the garden, so we're using baby chard as the lettuce, some grated Monterrey Jack for cheese, there's guacamole, sour cream, onion, black olives, and 3 kinds of hot peppers--cayenne, jalapeno, banana, sweet peppers (bumper year for peppers). We also having corn-on-the-cob.

Dessert? Well, I plan on having a nap for dessert, but there is homemade vanilla bean ice cream...

We will be grilling hamburgers tonight. Making some baked beans, and will have raw veggies and chips to go with it all. S'mores tonight over the fire.

I made pot pies with leftover beef stew. I also made 4 mini peach pies today. Had one Before dinner and will Force myself to eat another later this evening with ice cream. I bought Romaine lettuce the other day, to make a special caesar salad, cuz I have 2 anchovies in a baggie, good bread to make a few tasty croutons and makings for caesar dressing. Didn't feel like a salad after eating the pie. Well... there's always tomorrow.
