Dinner Monday, 8-3-2015

Our hot day here asks for quick and cool foods. I've had a taste for BLTs for a while; since I have to get out to run a couple errands, I'll swing by Panera for some good white bread. I'll also make big salads for us to satisfy the need for "cool". Then, just maybe, some sort of icy or ice cream-based drink. Who knows?

What are your dinner plans for tonight. Do you know?

Cajun shepherd's pie (not really since it's g. beef but that's name of the recipe). It's basically a meatloaf with the trinity and Cajun spices, baked, then topped with sautéed onion, carrot, zucchini and yellow squash (more Cajun spices), then a layer of mashed potatoes, back in the oven to brown the potatoes. Sometimes we make a very hot Cajun sauce for beef, which is way too hot for me but Craig likes it. Paul Prudhomme recipes.

I'm tired from shopping so no cooking today. I've got Banquet Salisbury steak patties heating up in the oven and I'll just nosh on that or maybe a cheese sandwich.

I'll get cooking in a day or two.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Dinner plans keep evolving. Currently the plan is chef's salads.

I am planning on Sichuan stir fried chicken, ginger roasted carrots and rice. Also cranberry nut bread from a good bakery.

Chicken parm and salad tonight. I'm hoping this is grandson friendly as he's here through Wednesday evening.

I made a small batch of ratatouille yesterday - minus eggplant, plus yellow summer squash - to see how we like it. Left it in the fridge overnight, so we'll have that over couscous with grilled shrimp and I'll make a lemon-basil aioli for dipping the shrimp. I think I'll make bruschetta with pesto and chopped garden tomatoes, too.

Pork loin chops that have been brined and fried. Beefy onion orzo with mushrooms, and salad.

DH brought home a "designer" chocolate cupcake from work. It's plenty big enough for two.
