Dad's Day Dinner - 6/17/2018

Daughter invited us over for dinner, so that means I'm cooking. It's also her birthday, so I'll cut her some slack this time.

I made a pasta salad early this morning, and then Mrs. T joined me on my morning ride. Came back and enjoyed a post-ride beer (it was after noon somewhere). I put together a nice green salad, and prepped the steak tips for marinating. All that's left is to skewer and grill them.

What's on your plate?

If I were going to make anything specially for Father’s Day, it would have to be T-bone steaks under the broiler until the outside was burned and the inside near raw. As it is, I’ll probably throw together a mushroom soup and a salad with a gribiche dressing (I’m pretty sure I’ve got capers somewhere in the fridge!).

My daughters took up out for lunch. I'm stuffed and will probably have a shack for dinner.

I bought a $10 pak of frozen cod pieces. I'm going to try "Zaterain's Fish Bake" oven mix for the first time. Dip the thawed cod pieces in egg, then coat with the mix and bake at 425F for 20 minutes. Boiled red potatoes. Blue Cheese dressing salad.

I forgot to buy zucchini, to fry up, which goes well with seafood. I may head to the store, just for the zucchini, to make this meal proper.

A nap sounds good, Ross! *yawn*

If not, I have half a jar in mine - in addition to three jars I just bought at TJ's and have stored away on my basement food shelves.

We'll be having a wedge-ish salad with shrimp scampi-style on a bed of pasta. If we want a dessert later, I have two different strudels in the freezer from what we bought at Aldi a month or so ago. We've had one out of each of the two-packs; the hardest part about making the next strudel will be picking between the apple or the chocolate-raspberry. Yup, dessert later tonight...I'll just cook fewer noodles for the scampi.

My younger son (Cheyenne's daddy) invited us for dinner. My sweet daughter-in-law has a big hole in her heart today, the fist Dad's day since she lost him a few months ago. Bradey lost his Dad when in his 60's and now she has too. We're taking her flowers and so much love. People that young should still have their Dads.
They both adore Souschef so it will help to have him there for them.

Anyway, son will barbecue something and I'm taking Cheryl's Southwestern corn and bean salad.
Thinking of my own Daddy today and miss him still.

Have no idea what I'll end up with. Ate 2 wedges of Galette for breakfast, a dill pickle and Corona for lunch, another wedge of Galette with my wine... maybe some Oka cheese later (and some more wine).

my eating habits are deplorable... LOL

have a small pork loin in brine but don't think I'll smoke it tonight. Guess that's for tomorrow. Probably still have time to but think I'll just have another glass of wine. Was too busy writing out a recipe for my sister - takes me ages to edit things.

It was too warm and muggy for me with sciatic pain and chasing goslings back thru the fence.

After re-rreading, thought I should mention those 'wedges' are 1/12th of galette - not a 1/4!
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
