Dinner? 5/7

What are you planning for you dinner? Pork piccata, mashed garlic potatoes, roasted asparaagus, Spinach salad with strawberries, and toasted walnuts, warm Italian bread and butter and peach jam if you need a sweet fix

Big family dinner tonight. SO's sister and granddaughter from Florida, her other sister and her DH and son and the two of us.

We're starting with a Derby party with drinks and appetizers followed by a demand performance of Caesar salad, Sunday Ragu with meatballs and sausages and garlic bread. Dessert is carrot cake and paklava.

hot link sausage for me, pansy-link sausage for wife and kids. She thinks mine is way too hot.

Just a salad, leftover chops and beans, leftover Boudin sourgough, and leftover Duca di Cardino chianti

Catch me tomorrow for a great Sunday Brunch and a fantastic Sunday dinner.

I think I am related somehow to one of Andy's SO's sisters or something so I will be joining the family party. Since dessert is covered, I have decided to bring a nice Asparagus Souffle from my "Asparagus" cookbook!

Dad is barely eating (I made him a chocolate shake with some protein powder in for his lunch and so far it is going down okay) and DH is going to work (I've packed cooked chicken thighs to heated as well as fruit and some raw veggies). So, for supper I am thinking of some kind of soup Dad will eat and is nourishing. For me, probably another salad with the left over steak from last nights meal salads for DH and me.

No asparagus, Andy?

I found myself by a Wegman's earlier today, so stopped in to pick up a pound of wild caught gulf shrimp And there was this nicely marbled ribeye a little ways down from the seafood calling to me, so it found its way into my basket also, right beside the shrimp and the sugar snap peas And I was on such a roll, that I hit the local hardware store and picked up a Smokey Joe to grill that steak over charcoal properly, rather than breaking down my WSM or using the gasser. Salad will cucumber and Vidalia onion with mayo and sour cream that I made last night.

Not sure today. Probably something quick and simple. Mrs 40 C is having an MRI this afternoon and we are out of pocket.

Take out hamburgers maybe.

Heading out to a friends birthday party. I don't know if they are going to feed us, so we may have to come back and eat something here. Probably a quick pasta if we have to.
