Dinner 8-27-2013 ~ To Cook or Not to Cook...

...no question here, I'm cooking! After two days of goofing off I'm feeling a little guilty.

I have a good-sized eye of round roast I'm fixing with mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, and steamed Chinese cabbage. Salad. And, if I follow thru on my intentions, PPO's peach and blackberry strudel. I keep eating the peaches when I buy them and they never get the chance to be baked!

Hopefully we have LOTS of leftover beef since it's around 5# and there are only two of us. I'll slice the leftover meat thinly and throw it in the crockpot with BBQ sauce for BBQ beef sandwiches later in the week.

SO suggested burgers tonight but while I was shopping a very pretty porterhouse caught my eye so that's what's going to be dinner tonight. I hope she doesn't mind...

I'm at the beach with friends today - it's an absolutely beautiful day. Last night I put a rub on a pork shoulder and it's in the slow cooker now. Need to pick up some cole slaw and buns for pulled pork tonight.

DeMoula's had Porterhouse steaks on sale for $5.95 a pound this week. Spike took a look at them and they were way too big for me to eat. Porterhouse is one of those steaks that should be eaten in one sitting. And I just can't do that. Sometimes I will remove the filet and freeze it for another day. Then eat the rest of it. Right now I could eat one. I haven't had any meat for a couple of days. Have no idea what will be on my plate tonight.

Just me tonight. Have some pizza in the fridge so I'll reheat that add a side salad and have fresh pineapple for dessert.

I'm going to have the same thing I had last night and the night before. Well, it wasn't leftovers two nights ago. I just need to go pick up some fresh greenage.

That'll work

I don't feel like running to the store now, but I do have a zucchini. I'll have breaded zucchini with my prime rib leftovers tonight. I think I make these once every two years. I hope my breading sticks

Yeah. Think I will show some restraint and go with one chicken and pesto w/roasted garlic. And do a sausage, mushroom, green onion one.
