Dinner Monday, 6-29-2015 ~ Monday Madness

We're going to try Attempt Number Three on getting my birthday dinner grilled. If not, I'm going to have to cook those shrimp and scallops in the house. And that won't make my taste buds happy since I really want the flavor from the grill.

The carrot cake for dessert on Friday is all gone. Eating dessert is almost never weather-dependent.

What are your culinary plans for tonight?

Planning on baked cod with a stir fry of veggies mainly from the farmers market.

We have leftover grilled chicken from yesterday so I'll do something with that. I made potato salad with mustard aioli for my neighbor and have extra aioli, so I'll make some more potatoes for us.

DH cut back the zucchini leaves and got rid of thousands of aphids. In the process, he found four large cucumbers, which are growing on a trellis behind the zucchini. I'll cut up one of those and some other veggies for dipping in ranch dressing.

We got lots of rain last week. Can you tell?

Doing veggies only here--meatless Monday. Eating the broccoli I t had to test drive, a kale recipe I wanted to "tweak" and gotta get rid of the celery and heritage carrots.

Pizza tonight, although it's too dang hot to do pizza, and I don't trust doing it on the grill. Yep, I hear how others can do it but it's not my thing. I'll just have to blast the AC to cold I guess. After Beth mentioned pizza last night, I just have to have it.

I'm on my way, S&P! Dang that looks good! Oh wait, it'll take awhile to get there...

We're working on my leftover half of a Blimpie's ham, turkey and cheese. DH already consumed his half over lunch. We also have some leftover lentil soup in case DH runs out of my sandwich.

Third time's a charm, CG, I hope you got to grill your seafood tonight!

Joey - your tri tip is perfectly grilled! Does that ever look mouthwatering.

I ended with a pan fried brat, and a vegetable medley - pattypan squash, carrots, potatoes, and onions. A fresh peach for dessert.

Cheryl, we did live a charmed life tonight! Himself was a little heavy-handed with grilling the shrimp (they were a wee bit tough this time), but the very pricey scallops were perfect.

Not as pretty as a "Joey Photo", but I'm verifying "picture, or it didn't happen". A nice Riesling wine from Shenandoah Vineyards accompanied the meal. Poured into a glass for those of us who are stemware-challenged.

That Tri-tip looks really good, Joey.

We have our grandson from tonight through Wednesday afternoon. So I had a favorite of his, spaghetti with meatballs and sausages.
