Dinner August 1st (aready!)

kinda a veggie nite here. buttery zucchini, carrot (those i'll batonnet if i get ambitious), trim broccoli & cauliflower into petite florets; blanch in stock/shock, then gently sautee in butter/salt/sage/pepper. or roast them.
i was puzzling over dinner beyond the veggies & VIOLA! soup!
i could make borstch or vichyssoise~ :) substantial enough for a dinner!

Good morning everyone,

It was nice sleeping in today, and I just had my second cup of coffee, so now it's time to start the day. I really need to get to the store for staples like, milk, bread, and butter, and to also pick up som chicken for dinner. Lots of laundry to get through too

So dinner will be grilled chicken on the bone, marinated in EVOO, lemon juice, garlic, soy, and oregano. On the side we'll have grilled zucchini and roasted red potatoes.

Enjoy the day

I'm making carnitas tonight. Right now I have pork shoulder slow cooking in it's own oil @ 210. I will crisp it right before serving under the broiler

We ended up having steak yesterday so I think we will be doing the "variations on hard cooked eggs" today instead. Will check back when I am sure.

Thanks, luvs, I can't serve toast to my Dad because of his throat condition - but the creamed eggs is a good suggestion. Haven't made them in awhile.
