Dinner 2-26-2015 ~ Thirsty Thursday?

It will be at our house if my two new recipes aren't that good!

We're so tired of this extremely cold, heavily snowed-upon winter, so I decided to take us on an adventure to Jamaica. I'll be popping chicken breasts into the crock pot with a mix of seasonings and liquids, will make a side dish of "rice and peas", and Himself will go back to perfecting our version of the Painkiller drink. If the dinner is really good, we may be happy with one drink apiece. If it's not, our drinks are limited only by how much pineapple juice we have.

I'll report on the food tastes later tonight and post the recipes if they turn out good. Meanwhile, time for you to share what you'll be making so we can get more good ideas.

I'm at a loss. I don't much feel like cooking, and I'm tired of chicken. Its cold but all I want is BBQ steak. Might just have to go out into the cold and bite the bullet, or the striploin as the case may be.

Think it is going to have to be steak, potatoes and green bean casserole tonight.

I'm making hot and sour soup tonight. We'll supplement that with egg rolls from the local take-out place.

With all the talk about cauliflower, I'll be roasting some for an early dinner this afternoon.

Not real sure of what else, maybe a stuffed bell pepper and fruit salad.

We get a take and bake United Way fundraiser of lasagna, garlic bread, and chocolate cake tonight. Good thing, as I'm rather tired of Italian beef after a week of it!

I took a round of pizza dough out of the freezer along with a tub of sauce. I'll put together pizza later adding smoked sausage, pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms and onions.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Steve is on his way down the the San Franando Valley (50 miles) to see the dentist he refuses to give up since he lived down there seven years ago. He's going to pick up dinner down there from Fireside Grill...the best ever 1/2 grilled chickens, so no cooking tonight for me.

Change of plans. We're going to have crepes for dinner. I will do some eggs and some ham and we have avocado and tomato and cucumbers. Dessert crepes will have raspberries, strawberries and bananas...mmmmmmmm!

I pan fried a bone in pork chop, nuked then baked a sweet potato and made a small scalloped cabbage casserole. No Leftovers !
