Dinner for Tuesday the 23rd

I have a couple of thick pork chops and some spinach feta stuffing defrosting. I'll stuff the chops and pan roast them for dinner tonight. I'm planning some rice pilaf (also from the freezer) and a tossed salad (not from the freezer) for the complete meal.

I'll be making a bowl of tuna salad and a big bowl of garden salad. Between that and all of the leftovers in the fridge, we'll have a "Choose Your Own Supper" kind of night. Sort of like a foodie version of the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books that were so popular when my kids were pre-teen (early 1990s). The upside of dinner is that no one will die or morph into an alien creature. I hope...

We have leftover tuna salad, along with hummus that I toned down with additional garbanzos and tahini minus the garlic. The first batch of hummus about blew the top of my head off, it was so garlicky. It's still pretty garlicky, but much tamer.

Leftover roast chicken and broccoli, one may turn into a salad to help take the curse off the other.

Today is our 31st anniversary! Love my DH soooooo much!

I bought a couple of frozen lobster tails and a beautiful ribeye steak. I'll poach the lobster in water with lemon juice and peel, garlic and parsley, then make a chunky lobster salad. DH will grill the ribeye and I'm also going to make these grilled potatoes, minus tarragon, plus thyme: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/b...bs-recipe.html

We're going to go out for a cocktail and dessert.

Congratulations, GG and your Hubby!

My sciatica has reared it's ugly head again so I am down for the count. TB is picking up a rotisserie chicken and salads - a nice summery meal!

Ah, so you made the garlic hummus of doom.
