Dinner Plans Friday the First of August?

We'll be having chicken wings on the grill, sesame noodles and a salad.

I'm planning on a dinner made with:

Brown rice made with turkey neck stock
Turkey neck meat

I'm low and slowc braising a big pork sirloin roast (in beer), so I'll probably have a bite or two to make sure it's done.

Not sure, maybe some ham and swiss grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup.

Yikes! It's August already! We have leftovers, and DH brought home some homegrown corn on the cob from work.

Leftover eggplant Parmesan from night before last. Tasted even better tonight and I think that's because the flavors had time to get to know each other. We also had a plate of cucumber spears and loads of corn-on-the cob from the garden. Omigosh! The corn is so good. It's a variety we like called "Double Delicious" and it definitely lives up to its name. The ears were full of rich, yellow, plump kernels. Oh, so sweet and with a rich corn flavor. We each had 3 large ears. We polished off the pina colada cake for dessert.

Breakfast dinner tonight! Fried eggs on toast, sausage links, cheddar cheese grits and we wiped out an entire cantaloupe.

Dinner plans were tacos, but Vidalia onion and cheddar on Ritz crackers is probably going to suffice.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

We had a beef meatloaf, potato salad, and a green salad for supper. The potato salad turned out really good.

I roasted some baby eggplant, pattypan squash, and garlic yesterday and had about 2 cups leftover today. It was really good and wanted to use the rest in a different way, instead of just warming it up. I pulsed the rest of it in the blender, stirred in some olive oil and some grated parm, added some toasted pine nuts, and had it as a spread on pita bread.

Oh, my goodness...I think I'll do that on purpose next time. Delish! I love it when leftovers are even better than the first time.

Turkey chili in the pressure cooker. A side salad. Greek yogurt tops the chili instead of sour cream. We are still working on that Carrot Pineapple bundt cake.
