Dinner July 22, 2013 ~ Manic Monday Menu

A little tune to jump-start your week:


If I can get myself over to the grocery store we'll have steamed lobster ($4.99 a pound! Steamed for you!), corn on the cob, baked potatoes. No salad. Nothing redeeming. Everything for supper will have butter. But first we'll have to put the local cardiologist on speed dial.

If I'm lazy it'll be leftovers, with lobster to come later in the week.

You could put some nice green chives on the potatoes

I'm thinking BLTs with the heirloom tomatoes I got at the farmers market Saturday, maybe with a caprese salad with my homemade fresh mozzarella.

Good idea GG. I have a pot on my kitchen windowsill. I'm guessing there will be more by the time I get to the store. Decided to go with the leftovers ~ pork roast and sauerkraut for Himself (I'll fry up a potato with onion) and the Bacon-mushroom pasta for me. Big salad for him and huge salad for me. The lobsters get a reprieve till later in the week when I do my full shopping. Decided to not make two runs to the grocery store. Yet another "I'm lazy" day.

Today is DH's birthday, and the son and his fiancee are both off work as is the yungun still living at home. I'm thinking a nice dinner out with the whole family is in order. I'd cook but the son is allergic to the cat (who came to us after he moved out) and he'd be miserable.
