Dinner August 24?

Thought I'd start a thread early this time.

I'm going to steam a nice big artichoke this afternoon, and have that with some melted garlic lemon butter. Fruit salad on the side - mandarins, watermelon, and blueberries.

What's on everyone's plate for this evening?

Dinner Monday August 24?

This is DH's birthday and he has not requested an easy meal. Fried chicken (have never made this before, thighs are currently resting in some buttermilk), mashed potatoes (dug the potatoes this morning), gravy (bought a dry gravy mix), corn (frozen) and German Chocolate cake (my second for him so I was mentally prepared for the lengthy prep). The 3 layers of cake are in the oven and it is almost noon.

What's happening at your place?

Not nearly as much as what's happening at your place, Beth.

I smoked and pulled a beef chuck roast yesterday. We'll have pulled beef sandwiches with BBQ sauce and cole slaw (separate from the sandwich) for dinner.

I picked up a nice, small round of rustic bread. Half of it will be tonight's Panzanella with the shrimp intended for last night. (Last night's dinner never got made. The tuna was off, and so was the cook, and I had a meltdown. Thank goodness a rotisserie chicken had hopped into the basket on Saturday!) The other half will be used for tomorrow's dinner.

Had new carpet installed today and chorus rehearsal tonight so DH is picking up pizza on his way home. My new carpet is so purty!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I'm grilling wings and a basket of marinated veggies. We'll have Andy's Ranch potato salad we made yesterday.

I've got a bit of Thai Drunken Noodles takeout left over from lunch, and will probably fix DH a grilled Canadian bacon, tomato, and cheese sandwich (he finished all of his Thai takeout, and better keep his mitts out of my leftovers.)

Smoked ribs re-runs with my cole slaw and I made a pan of corn muffins today.
