Dinner Pi Day Friday ~ 3-14-2014

Figured I'd start this while I still know what I have planned - just in case I forget when it's time to cook. TJ's is providing the entrees. I have a crab-stuffed flounder and a crab cake for each of us. Making green beans and parsley buttered noodles for the sides. I'm in the mood for a relish tray so I'll maybe get around to making some dip and cutting up fresh veggies first.

What are your plans?

It depends on whether BIL can come over for his birthday. If so, we will have fried chicken, wedges, corn on the cob and salad. I will also make brownies for birthday cake - I'll make both gluten free and regular.

If he doesn't come I will bake the chicken, do the wedges and salad but skip the corn and unfortunately the brownies

In honor of Pi day, we're having a pizza 'pie' for dinner tonight.

We're going out with friends tonight to see "Non-Stop" at a dinner theater. It's in a really cool, old art-deco style building with the best sound system in the area: http://www.commodoretheatre.com/

A house with no pie on Pi Day is a very cold and lonely place to be. I think I am with Andy on this one and I will have to order Pizza Pie delivery and call it good. Neighborhood pizza place. Brings a coupon taped to the box for your next order. Bless them. They know how to stay in business.

Strip loin steak on the BBQ. I'll pan fry some potato slices to go with and maybe do some yellow wax beans I found at the back of the freezer. Salad will be a nice avocado tomato cucumber and dessert will be pie! I didn't realize it was pie day so I'll have to go whip one up. It will be either rhubarb or saskatoon depending on whats in the freezer. Those are Ken's two favorites.

I've got some asparagus and broccoli I'd like to use up. I was thinking of tossing them in with some pasta, probably penne. And some crab and Kalamatta olives may find their way in there as well. As well as garlic and Penzey's Greek seasoning. I just wish I had some feta...
Give us this day our daily bacon.
