Dinner Mmmmm-Monday, 10-7-2013

It's dinnertime in the eastern US time zone for some. Then there are the late people like us who eat during the news...the 10PM news, that is!

What yummies will you be having today? I have apple cider brined boneless pork chops that will get cooked on my Griddler today due to the weather. Going to try and bake some smashed potatoes; while they're in the oven I'll cook asparagus on my CI grill pan. Salad - maybe, maybe not. Might chill some white Wine du Boite to go with since dinner is what Himself would deem "fancy". Fancy is ALWAYS an excuse for wine!

No cooking when the Red Sox and Rays playoff game starts at 6:00PM. Ordering Chinese tonight.

I'm going to grill some wings... as soon as they've thawed enough to break apart. I had anticipated knowing a day in advance when I would want them and did not freeze them separately. Lesson learned.
Also going on the grill will be potato wedges and the usual veggies will round things out.

No TV in the kitchen, Andy?

Turkey chili and a salad. I use turkey because I also use chorizo sausage and that stuff is heavy. Delicious, though.

Yes, so we can eat take-out Chinese and watch the game.


(Can't really focus on cooking dinner and watching the game at the same time.)

I was going to ask the same thing! I'd be lost without my TV (I think it's a 19" screen) on the counter. Going to go watch the nightly news now while fixing dinner.

I don't mind cooking during a regular season game. But really, then it's really background and you have to wait for the replay of a great play to really see it.

The man apparently loves his baseball.
Although I've been thinking of getting another TV for the kitchen and moving that one out by the grill
Shoot. I should have ran an HDMI cable out there when I was running that gasline. Shoot.

At the Dr. all day so I picked up a frozen mexican enchilada dinner and spent the rest of the afternoon figuring out my medications (6).

The dinner was pretty good, with enough left over for another meal.
