Dinner Monday 9-5-2016 ~ What did you labor over in your kitchen-grill?

A few days ago, the weather-guessers were figuring we'd get rains from leftover Hermine. As time went by, the rain kept moving further and further from where WE are. Still, no grilling here. However, it is a perfectly autumnal-feeling day, so I'll be making a pork loin roast. Sides will be spaghetti squash (making use of the oven for that, too) and green beans - maybe with sauteed mushrooms, maybe with sliced almonds. No salad, but I will chunk up some veggies to dip in hummus.

What are/were your dinner plans for today?

We're having leftovers from yesterday's cookout.

Thinking of cobbling together some sopa de lima, but I'll have to convince the freezer to give up the jalapenos. I know they're in there somewhere, along with chopped green onion, but haven't been able to locate them yet.

Ha! Found 'em!

I've had some pork ribs in Jamaican Jerk marinade since yesterday. I haven't decided yet if I'll do them on the grill, or in the oven. We'll also have cole slaw and cucumber/onion salad, with garlic Texas toast for the SC.

There will be very little laboring here in southwest Michigan today. My mom and I spent the night at my brother and SIL's just outside Chicago and went to a flea market in Shipshewana, IN (isn't that fun to say? ).

We're now on our way back to her cottage and will have an easy dinner of summer sausage, cheese, bread and fruit. Details later, road is bumpy, typing is frustrating.

Just a nibbling on fruits and veggies kind of dinner again. That oughta teach me to not buy so much at a time. I'm enjoying the fresh veggies with a Knorr's onion dip though - half sour cream and half plain yogurt.

A variant of a recipe in Beth Hensperger's slow cooker cookbook. Pork tenderloin cooked in a sauce of a jar of Newman's salsa, dried cherries, honey and cumin. Served over brown rice (in the Zoji, of course). Steamed broc.

After a few comfortable, fall-like days we're back into the blast furnace. My plans were to make lasagna, which I did but it sure warmed up the kitchen. Guess that's why I was in the pool a good part of the day.

We washed it down with our usual iced tea and had homemade baguette with butter and garlic.
