8/23/13 - What's For Dinner?

My last night on the firelines - have roast chicken or salmon and veg ( not sure what is coming from my order) is on the menu. 2 soups - vegetable soup and beef barley along with chili with beans. Also prepping a taco bar, lots of fruits - apples, peaches, nectarines. A local farm brought us 3 boxes of Flat Head Cherries. And, of course, all manner of hot and cold sandwiches.

I will be at work all weekend catching up for next week.

We may be having shrimp and crabcakes. DH was on the Eastern Shore of VA this week and just called. One of the guys in his office asked him to stop at this seafood place and get him some crab meat and shrimp. DH wanted to know if I wanted any. So he's bringing home 1 lb of crab and 2 lbs jumbo shrimp.

We're having "mystery crock-pot" beef, Italian green beans, steamed rice, iced tea and white chocolate chip-macadamia nut cookies.

"Arthur" is plaguing me today so I threw some beef I cut into strips in the crock-pot, sauteed some onions in olive oil, tossed those in, added some garlic (of course), a bunch of sliced mushrooms, red wine, tarragon and salt and pepper. Whatever it will become, it's certainly smelling pretty good right now.

PF, forget eating. Sounds like you need a nap for dinner!

We're having evil hot dogs on the grill. I have the ingredients lined up to make GotGarlic's Potato Salad with Vinaigrette Dressing seeing as how we really liked powerplantop's version (I'm sure it will be wonderful GG ) and Himself was singing the praises of baked beans. I'll open a can of Bush's -- but won't invite the talking dog.

We're going to check out a new restaurant that specializes in steaks and chops. I've heard good things about it.
