Dad's away, so the mouse will play dinner Wednesday June 20, 2018

My Dad is at a Norwegian thing in Fargo, ND for a few days. I am making my take on the Morrocan meatballs as burgers that Rock posted the other night, a jicama coleslaw (Mom can't eat cabbage, etc. cuz of her meds and vit K), and cous-cous, all stuff Dad would never eat. Here's to playing in the kitchen. Gotta get the Marissa made. Whatcha all making for dinner tonight?

Your dinner sounds pretty good.

I'm having the last of my lasagna from the freezer and SO is having a TJ's flatbread of some kind or another.

Looks like you need to find a few more events out of town for Dad to attend! That jicama slaw sounds like the perfect summer accompaniment. Do you have a specific recipe for it, or is it just make as you go?

CWS, As tempting as Moroccan flavored burgers sound, I think I would rather go with your dad to the Norway festival. I've never been, and I live within spitting distance of the park where the local Norway summer festival (one day event) is every year.

Today I walked by my favorite bagel store on the way to the dollar store for a bd card. Thought hmmm, dinner was going to be leftover cold grilled salmon salad, and finished the thought by picking up a couple everything & pumpernickel bagels and some cream cheese. So this is dinner tonight. Along with some thin sliced tomato, onion, radish, cucumber. I think I will fill the plate out with the veggies on the side so I can pick and choose. There might or might not be about a spoonful of capers in the frig. Ice tea.

Bacon wrapped Filet Mignon steaks will be pan seared in the carbon steel skillet. We'll have loaded spuds with roasted asparagus as the sides along with Texas garlic toast.

Getting HOT here in the high desert. I've been looking through the salad recipes here and online for some new and different ideas for nice cool eats.

It was 107 today and even though it's cool in the house, I've not felt much like cooking - I'm less active outside these days, so I need to keep that in mind. This afternoon's dinner was a couple of deviled eggs, an apple, sliced cold ham, cheese, and crackers. Lots of iced tea with lemon.

When I go to the grocery store tomorrow or the next day, I'll buy either a tri tip or a whole chicken (or both!) and roast them for nice cool nibbles for the next week.
