Aug 9th, dinner creations for this evening?

last nights dinner went so well. I was very pleased as was the husband.
Yesterday was a market day for me and I got my freezer all stocked up again. it had been deflated.

my dinner tonight will be ug, I am not real sure I want to even say this as it's a first for me, but, shark. I bought two sharks steaks yesterday and the butcher assured me I'd love it. he did a marinating rub over them and I am going to bake them enpapiote. okay, I can't spell so "in pillows". I have parchment paper as well as very heavy duty foil and I plan on using the parchment. I have fresh vegetables and a variety of sauces so if anyone can help me figure out the flavors to use, I'd appreciate it. like I say, never ever had shark. I'm not typically into eating something that would rather eat me.

a friend gave me a recipe broccoli salad that I'll make along with a rice and barley risotto w/ fresh/frozen peas, red wine reduction and 3 cheese shaker jar of parm/asiago/romano. I have to continue making the rest of the cookies for this weekend's bash in San Jose, and then get them FED EX'd up there.

Hope your day is wonderful and enjoy your Wednesday.

I wanted to make Tortellini a la panna, but Frank won't be here before 8pm and I have an appointment at 7pm... so the kitchen will stay cold, I'll search for something and Tortellini will be there for tomorrow...

LEFSE, I think shark tastes quite a bit like scallops. If I were you, I'd pan-sear it.
We get by with a little help from our friends

We are going to a friends for dinner and we'll have a feast.
He's Persain and his dad will be cooking dinner for us. Let me tell ya.. his dad can cook!! I'm not sure of the whole menu but I do know we will be having a lamb and rice dish and also a chicken and eggplant dish. Paul and I are so excited.

I'll be bringing the vanilla bean ice cream that I made yesterday and also some of Paula Dean's Lemon blossom cupcakes.

Dinner and dessert will be followed by cups of Persain tea. Yummy!

I'm in the mood for a stew so I threw together a beef stew and its slow cooking now in the crockpot. I just raided the freezer, pantry and spice cabinet and put in what sounded good. I'll let it cook for sometime and then thicken the gravy towards the end. I'm going to serve it along with some cheddar - garlic drop biscuits.

Smile Jalapeno Burgers

It is so good to be home again!! What I missed the most while I was gone was being able to cook. With all the eating out I did I don't think I will be visiting any restaurants anytime soon.

Tonight for dinner I am grilling hamburgers. I think I will make Jalapeno Burgers topped with Monterey Jack cheese. Right now I have red potatoes boiling to make potato salad. With the salad I am going to have baked beans.

The shark steaks I have had were very similar to swordfish. Nothing like a scallop!

Lefse, the sauce you choose will probably have something to do with the flavors in the rub that's on your fish. Do you know what your fish man used?
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Last night was GB's incredible polenta. It's supposed to be 100 today, so I I think it will be something cool and easy; perhaps grilled burgers.
