Dinner 9-13-2013 ~ Friday the 13th!

Superstitious? Nope! Just in case though, avoid black cats and ladders.

Himself will be grilling beautiful porterhouse steaks that were on special at the corner grocery store. I'm in charge of the potato (twice-baked), veggie (broccoli, steamed) and salad (mostly romaine, to use it up).

******************************************

Hey pac, is the thread started early enough for you? I did this special just for you.

Early enough? Well, if you're going to throw dinner in my face before I've even had breakfast, then I guess I'll have to think of something

I have to make a run to Wegmans today, so I'll probably throw a package of ground lamb in the cart. I'm thinking feta stuffed lamb burgers on the grill.

I'm thinking of the bowl of shredded wheat I have in front of me...

Tonight I will be having a bean and cheese burrito.

Hey, some of us eat the previous night's dinner before starting the one for that day!

FISH! I went out at lunch time and bought a salmon steak for myself and a haddock filet for SO. I want to grill the salmon. I'll check with SO on how she wants her haddock.

There I was. I had the red onion, the fresh mint and oregano, the feta... and the store was out of ground lamb. I even had dill and Greek yogurt to try my hand at making that sauce I can never remember how to spell without looking it up... So tonight's dinner will be?

Well, it won't be the same, but you can use ground beef or pork. And it's tzatziki

I'm going to try to hit Costco for some necessaries and some favorites for over the weekend. We still have seafood and chicken pasta left from last night (I guess I'm now re-re-purposing.) I usually pick up a sashimi platter or something like that. That will round out things for tonight. Thank goodness its Friday.

DH is going golfing with friends tonight, so it's just me. I picked two tomatoes from the garden yesterday that were starting to burst from moisture, so I'm thinking a BLT on homemade white bread and a sliced tomato with S&P, basil chiffonade and red-wine vinegar on the side.
