Dinner, March 7/2008, TGIF

Tonight, the DH is once again goin at it alone. Bet he'll stop on the way home and get El Pollo Loco. I'll be going to a place I hear so much about but haven't yet been to. If I don't get filled up on crustaceans and the like, maybe later I'll indulge on this tiny treasure in the wall.
So what are you planning on placing on your dinner table tonight?
{{{{{{{{{{{{Happy start of the weekend everybody!}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Mmmm... Sushi. Actually, I'm just getting a taste for it back. DH and I went to a cheap sushi bar a month or so ago where they served nori rolls the size of your fist. Since you have to eat the things in just one bite, I really suffered-- I choked on the darned thing. Plus, it wasn't very good sushi, so the whole experience was... well... not a lot of fun. Turned me off of the stuff for awhile. Lesson learned: it's generally worth shelling out a bit more for quality sushi.

Dinner for us tonight is chili and cornbread. It's a cold day and it sounds really wonderful. I should get started cooking, actually!

-Karen

I have a show tonight, so we will probably go out to eat afterwards.
I'll be making dh oven toasted mac & cheese before I leave.
I strained my back a bit last night and am a little worried about it being okay for the show. Send me some healing thoughts would you?

I feel for you Corazon, and am sending healing thoughts and prayers.

I have no idea what dinner will be for the border and I. DH eats at work Friday nights and Neither our border or I are up to cooking. So probably soup and grilled cheese.

We are under a winter storm warning here with expectations of up to a foot of snow tonight. I am making a pot of beef/vegtable soup and some homemade bread.

so ready for spring!

Bucky's post made me hungry for sushi. Maybe, I'll stop and get some on the way home.

Same storm here, too, ladies. The schools sent the students home at 1:30 in anticipation of bad weather.

I'm making vegetable beef soup in the pressure cooker. We'll polish off the last of the N.Y. Times bread with it. Today's the perfect day for soup.
