April 8th Dinner - Happy Friday everyone!

Well I'm taking chicken breast out of the freezer. Ken requested cacciatore, but I already had breasts, not thighs, in mind. I've not decided yet what to do with them, but I still have some lemons, and some lovely tomatoes and some fresh oregano. The weather is warm enough to BBQ, and I MIGHT be able to move the BBQ now that some of the snow is gone. I'll post back with the final decision.

SO wants a salad and naan tonight. I don't. I 'll rummage around in the freezer for something. Maybe chili, soup or whatever.

You could make it a chef's salad and fill it full of yumminess, or a Cobb salad. I think soup would round it out nicely though. Is the snow gone for you yet Andy?

Thanks for the suggestions but I'm not in the mood for salad today. Maybe soup and a BLT!

There is still snow where the plows piled it up but it's gone otherwise. Looks like a warm weekend too.

Mmmm, BLT, what a great idea. I might have that for lunch.

For supper, I'm having leftover mushroom stuffed pork tenderloin and leftover brown rice risotto. I might heat some rødkål to go with that.

Most probably fish......but maybe pasta...but definitely not pizza...although soup and grilled cheese sounds good too.

Friday night is Pizza night around here. I try to mix it up and we all like different toppings, so I usually make two or three different ones. I am going make my all time fave for myself, which is fresh tomato, anchovies, black olives, and oregano. Hope to have a pic or two up later. Bon Apetit, tuti!

Just discovered I may have two extra bodies, possibly 3 extra bodies for dinner tonight. Then got a text saying I might be short the other daughter which leaves me at...1 extra? or 2? Lordy, who knows. I might get last minuted and have 8 instead of my usual 4. That chicken might have to streeeeetch a bit.

I'm going to lightly fry the breasts in some bacon fat (after dusting them), and put them in a casserole dish. I'm going to deglaze with a bit of wine and broth and toss in umpty bazillion garlic cloves. I'll let them soften a bit then pour the whole mess over the chicken and bake it for a bit in the oven. Starch is going to be wild rice medley done in chicken broth. Salad is likely going to be caesar since we have a garlic theme going on, and I have some bacon left over to go in it.

If I need to stretch, I have tortillas and I will shred the cooked chicken and we'll have wraps. If I don't have to stretch I'll buzz the garlic cloves into a nice gravy and we'll have the chicken as is over the rice.

Cooked veggie as yet to be named. I'm not sure what's left in the fridge. Might be frozen corn/peas/beans if there is nothing fresh to steam.

Dessert is sundaes! Got piles of ice cream and lots of toppings, that should satisfy the extra kids coming over.
