What's for supper?

Thanks to TenSpeed, I already know. I'm doing his newly posted recipe for Chicken Thighs in Pesto Cream Sauce. I think I may add some frozen artichoke hearts to the mix, and serve mine over wilted spinach. I'll do some pasta for the SC, and we'll have salads with it. Yum.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Daughter, SIL, and grandbaby are coming over for dinner. Chicken tenders / roast red peppers / artichoke hearts / mushrooms / olives in a wine sauce tossed with penne pasta. Dutch oven rosemary and olive oil bread and salad on the side. Grandbaby gets a bottle.

I've been tortured with the delicious aromas of my slow-cooker St. Louis ribs all afternoon. I rubbed them and pre-baked on 400 to degrease them a bit yesterday, so all I had to do was slice an onion and add the sauce.

Maybe the rest of dinner is done, too, since I made a batch each of coleslaw and potato salad for tonight, too. However, I really have a taste for mac-and-cheese as a side. After all, you really can't have too many sides when you have BBQ ribs, right? And that means more food already planned as leftovers for down the week.

We're getting stuff from the local Thai restaurant. DH is sick of leftovers. So it's stir-fried broccoli with chicken, crying tiger beef (it's cooked), and sesame chicken salad. All this came with two huge containers of rice. I forsee some repurposed pineapple fried rice in our near future.

I just threw ribs in the crock pot and I have no idea how these are going to turn out. I like to add a little water to the crock pot, but I didn't want my ribs sitting in the water, so this time I sliced up some red onions and layered those on the bottom. I also salted, peppered, and cayenned the ribs before sticking them in and shook a little garlic powder over them. Then I poured almost a whole bottle of BBQ sauce over the ribs and sprinkled some brown sugar over that.

I just hope they're edible.

We're having spaghetti with garlic-onion-bell pepper-meat sauce and toasted bread with butter and Penzey's Fox Point seasoning.

I made Cornmeal waffles (from a Jiffy box) and a trimmed down version of Black bean/ corn salad. I spread half a waffle with grape jelly for dessert.

I'm exhausted. Tyler was here from noon to 5 while his mom and dad went to lunch and to the movies - he wore me out with a couple of hours of baseball in the backyard, painting, playing cars with me being the bad guy while he played the good cop , a few games of Candyland, Leggos, etc....

He snacked on fruit, cheese and crackers, and veggies with ranch, and I shared a little with him. After he went home I made a couple of slices of French toast with maple syrup and a fried egg and called it good. I love that little guy but man is he a busy one. LOL
