Dinner Sunday 26th May 2013

Tonight we are making a chicken, apricot and mango chutney meatloaf, serving it will steamed cabbage and broccoli, covered in gravy

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Gonna grill a couple of ribeyes this evening. Not at all sure what's going to be on the plate with them.

Crawfish hand pies and most likely a salad.
If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

I have a couple racks of beef baby back ribs sitting in the fridge in a dry rub, which we will grill later. We'll put a smoker pack in there, too, and hopefully get some smoke flavor on them. I'm thinking about getting some shrimp for surf & turf; I picked up a yellow squash, zucchini and bunch of asparagus at the farmer's market yesterday, so we'll grill those for sides and drizzle with Meyer lemon juice.

I haven't a clue! Guess I'll have to go check out the freezer in a bit and see what I got that I can do something with. We had French toast and sausages for brunch so right now I'm in the middle of a sugar buzz. Will have to wait for that to wear off before thinking about dinner.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I'm also firmly in the "haven't got a clue" frame of mind. I have no idea who will show up today for what snack or meal (ditto tomorrow) and the weather isn't very accomodating for anything. My husband had me email out a general invitation for anyone to stop by any time over the weekend, hoping to enjoy the porches we cleaned up over the past week. I just asked that people give a ring before showing up at the door. Last night wound up being a barbecue with a neighbor and his daughter, the weather let up long enough for that. Today I'm pretty sure a couple will show up around one for sips and nibbles. I think tomorrow another friend may come over to cook out again, but of course the weather will determine. So dinner tonight may just be the two of us, in which case maybe breakfast-for-supper. On the other hand, who knows? Flexibility is the name of the game this weekend. We considered a party, but there are too many graduation, end-of-school year, holiday, and even one ordination parties going to coordinate such a thing, so we just decided to have an open-drop-in policy this holiday weekend.

The yungun has rehearsal after work so won't be home until the wee hours of the morning. It'll just be DH and I. After a browse through the freezer, I've decided to do a quick jambalaya. I've got the trinity in the freezer and smoked sausage in the fridge. It'll be a nice simple supper for us.

I took some freezer spaghetti sauce out of the freezer earlier and will be having that... with spaghetti. Basically so I can put another hurtin' on the crusty french bread I bought yesterday.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I have one beautiful tomato, 4 slices of bacon and some spinach, so it will be a BST
