Dinner Saturday night April 30

I picked up some chicken breasts in NY...so, I'm thinking of grilling them with a glaze. My thought is to make the glaze using some Jack Daniels, maple syrup, lime, garlic, and ginger. Any thing else I should consider to add? To go with the chicken, I'm leaning toward a tossed salad with some quinoa added and a vinegrette using the lime olive oil and a vinegar--not sure which one--maybe white balsamic--maybe the cloudberry vinegar...or should I use the porcini olive oil? Frozen veggies from the freezer (from the garden last year). And, for dessert, store-bought chocolate ice cream (moose tracks) with the truffles that my aunt sent home with me.

I think the sauce sounds good but, I would need a little heat in mine!

Still cool here so I am making a pizza for the students next door.

DH is working another two shift day and probably won't get home between, so I loaded him up with sandwiches and snacks. Dad has a really bad cold and I am still dealing with allergies and lack of sleep so I think I am just going to put on a big pot of soup and that will be lunch and supper. Not sure what kind yet but it will contain whatever I have in the house I need to use up!

My freezer is full of meals so I'm thawing out some pork in red sauce, and a package of Jasmine rice.

I'm thinking of draining/saving the extra red sauce and adding some salsa then mixing in the rice. The pork was especially tender.

I'll get two containers out of the freezer, but will probably be able to put back 2 ready meals, but this time I'll put them in baggies so they will lay flat and I will write on the bags.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Tonight will be orange roughy fish fillets with my perfect fish batter. I just posted my recipe for anyone who wants it. My "Perfect Fish Batter"

I'll be winging it with some jasmine rice made with coconut milk, pineapple and mango. Mixed green salad with Julienne pickled beets, white onion slices, marinated artichoke quarters.
I want some kind of a desert tonight. My Meyer lemon tree will give me some kind of inspiration I hope.

I picked up a nice porterhouse today. That, along with some roasted red potatoes and grilled zucchini.

Blue cheese-mushroom burgers on the grill, homemade hamburger buns, 5-bean baked beans, wilted cucumbers, green onions, radishes, iced tea and butterscotch-nut meringue pie for dessert.
