DD gave me two suggestions for dinner tonight.
I think I may have to take her up on her suggestions.
Houstons in downtown LA or CO Trattoria Venice.
Both sound good and fun.

Chicken cacciatore, side of pasta, romaine salad. No dessert. Saving room for that for tomorrow.

I picked up some golden beets and candystripe beets the other day. I'm roasting them now to serve with goat cheese rilettes on a bed of boston lettuce.

I'm following that with a beef shank ragu over home made mafalda pasta.

We have zeppoles (one with cheese and one with creme) for dessert.

Bourbon for cocktail hour and the wine has yet to be determined.

It feels like snow..............
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Rib eye steaks for us tonight, sauteed mushrooms and red onions, and probably wild rice and some other veggie along with that. Everyone's dinners sounds delicious!

made some collards with boar bacon and onions last night, but theres lots left so we'll have them with some cornmeal crusted brook trout and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from just below Sancerre in the Loire....

and some homemade Oatmeal bread and butter.

For dessert, some blue cheese and pears.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I'm making Breezy's baked chicken cacciatore with a side of spaghetti, a romaine salad and garlic bread ... I swear I'm not copying you, Katie! We have chocolate chip cookies for dessert.

No dinner tonight. Spent the day at a local festival, hoping to wear the effects of the food booths off with all the walking we did.

If I get really hungry later on, it will be peanut butter or cheese and crackers.

I am making a mustard maple glazed pork tenderloin, roasted red potatoes and roast asparagus with crumbled feta on top. For dessert, I am defrosting a couple of slices of the Cheesecake Factory's triple chocolate cheesecake.
