Dinner 2/20 - "Fat Tuesday"

Didn't see a thread started for today, so here it is.

I just returned from the market where I managed to snag the last container of shucked "select" oysters. Today is apparently "oyster day" around here in honor of "Fat Tuesday" & Mardi Gras.

So - I'll be frying those luscious fat little guys up & serving them with lots of lemon wedges, hot sauce, & tartar sauce, as well as a nice big green salad with blue cheese vinagarette.

I have no idea - we have a computer geek coming over at 4pm to hook up our new wireless router and set up our laptops. I guess I have to wait until he leaves before I cook dinner.....?
My Chinese friend at work gave me a tupperware container full of homemade Chinese dumplings and meatballs, I might have them tonight and maybe a little fried rice on the side.

Hope you enjoy the oysters BreezyCooking. Here in Spain we have "jueves lardero" or lardy Thursday rather than Tuesday. No idea why.

Not sure what I'll have for supper. Just me tonight and I've been working really hard recently so I'm not in the mood for making much effort. Emmenthal omelette and salad sounds about the limit of my capabilities. Just as well I love omelettes!

Well, we had a stirfry last night with egg noodles and sweet potato noodles and lots of ginger, and I feel like having that again. But then, I should be having pancakes. I'm waiting for DH, so I'll run it by him and see. It will either be breakfast with pancakes or the stirfry though. :)

Kitchen is closed here due to Mardi Gras. Buck and I will be going to our favorite New Orleans-style restaurant for our annual Mardi Gras dinner.

There'll be lots of good food, live music, crazy costumes, beads and more beads and fun, fun, fun. We go every year and have a blast. We'll come home stuffed and covered in purple, green and gold beads. We're usually among the last to leave it's so much fun. Can't wait!

Shrove Tuesday always means pancakes in our house. I had planned on potato pancakes for dinner but they tend to have an unfortunate effect on some of my family so I may stick with regular pancakes unless I can stop for some Ovol some time today.

yeah, it`s pancake day here also, although I didn`t find out until this afternoon when I`de already prepared the doings for a nice Chicken curry with basmati rice.

maybe something with Tortilla wraps instead of pancakes tomorrow will be good, sadly the Veggy market wasn`t on today as I`de got the mozzela stuffed mushrooms planned.
