Dinner on Donnerstag, July 20

i guess it should then be dinnerstag...

so, whatcha cookin' tonight?

i have a coupla pork chops and some hot italian toikey sausage (i wonder who judges wheter the italian turkeys are hot or not?). i might get the grill fired up. i made mango salsa last night, so i've got the side dish ready. also have lots of spinach from the garden, possibly for a salad (with grilled mushrooms maybe).

if i get motivated and get to the store for some mozzarella, i've been jonesin' for chicken parm. that's the backup plan. if not, then it'll be gratinata of chicken, with fresh sage and zucchini in a white wine sauce.

Donnerstag? I expected you would be doing something German!! From what you are having, "Giovedi" would have been more fitting

I think I'm doing chicken pot pie tonight. I've already got the chicken cooked so all I really have to do is throw everything else together.

either bbq'd chicken or leftovers.

We've got a busy night planned so... it has to be easy to cook and easy to clean up.

I'm thawing out some homemade spagetti sauce and ground beef. I'm going to fry up some ground beef with additional onion, garlic and green peppers and add that to the thawed sauce. I'm going to cook up some spagetti and drain that real good and add my meat sauce to it and mix it up really well. I'll put it in a 8x8 baking dish, that I've sprayed with non-stick spray, and top it with fresh moz.. I'll cover it with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes then remove the alum. foil and turn the broiler on and let the cheese melt and toast a little. Well have garlic breadsticks and a spring garden salad to go along with it.

DH works late so we got a movie to watch and will have dinner after the sun goes down. I pounded some chicken breasts and plan to flour them, then dip in egg and then into parm and finely chopped almonds, then I'm making a sauce from shallots,parsley, white wine and a little butter and will top the chicken with that. With it I've cooked some nice green beans and have them chilling with evoo,salt,pepper and sliced red onion, red potatoes the little ones I'm going to boil then put parsley,garlic, butter and crumbled bacon over them to serve. I'm just going to slice tomatoes,cucumbers and peppers and dress with some type of dressing, not sure yet.Dessert, most likely will be DH's favorite for him cantaloupe with vanilla ice cream, me nah, tea or coffee will be fine

Kadesma that sounds good might change my plans. I have a bunch
of cashews think that would work instead of almonds?

I have always wanted to try coating fish with nut never have tried it
yet but chicken sounds wonderful too. Do you bake the chicken or
pan fry?

Sure rickell, the cashews would be great...I saute the chicken in evoo and some butter on a medium heat. Since I've pounded the chicken fairly thin it cooks quickly. I think that some fish fixed this way would be wonderful the nuts seem to go with fish as well as chicken..
