Dinner August 22?

What is everyone thinking about for dinner?
I have 2 pork tenderloins that I'm going to slice and pound, then just saute and sauce with lemon, butter and capers. I'm making some roasted potatoes with evoo,lemon and rosemary and some sliced and sauteed apples. A tomato,cucumber salad, rolls and banana bread for later.

I've been rooting around in the freezer, trying to create some space for some beef I'm getting this week, and found two ham hocks. I wanted to make a lentil soup with them, but guess ham hocks and lentils are not a natural, because the hocks cook for so much longer than the lentils..Found two recipes in Joy that I had to combine, one for lentils and one for senate soup, but then I googled and found just what I was looking for, a recipe by Emeril (sp?) somebody. So will start the soup soon, and have garlic bread and some apple sauce.

Hey kadesma, the onion sauced pork chops were yummy!! Thanks for the recipe.

You're welcome Beth, I'm happy you enjoyed them. Your soup sounds great and I want to make some one of these days. Nothing makes your home smell like home than a pot of soup and homemade bread

I think we are having pork chops so may try the onion sauced. I hadn't decided how before I read the posts. Also I have some very pretty zuchinni and tomatoes, so we may have that and I suppose I may make steamed rice - fruit for dessert - cherries, pineapple, peaches, melon, grapes, and I may make some chocolate thin crisps since I haven't made them in a great while and don't feel too guilty eating those (since they are very skinny). Can you tell I'm thinking as I post?

I'm having a postponed dinner party (from Sunday) tonight, so it will be the beautiful loin lamb chops I brought back from Boston the other week... with some small white beans I'm finishing with heirloom tomatoes, onions, garlic in chicken stock, and some sauteed greens.

For dessert, I'm making a free-form raspberry/blackberry tart.

I've got some ribeyes thawing out, so It'll be steaks on the grill, broccoli. and a gratin dauphino recipe from Bobby Flay. The recipe for the gratin calls for 3 cups of heavy cream. I have 1/2 & 1/2 in the fridge, do you think that I can sub it for the heavy cream? I also have plain yogurt and sour cream if that would help compensate for the 1/2 & 1/2?
Thanks,
John.

If all I had was the half and half, I'd go ahead and use it. I 've used it in place of heavy cream when I make scalloped potatoes..The taste was the same...
