Dinner Thursday 27th June 2013

Tonight we are heading over to mums for my 2nd birthday dinner

Mum is cooking her lovely veal parmigiana and french onion potatoes for dinner tonight and today I have made a lovely moist carrot cake with delicious cream cheese icing to take over for my birthday cake

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

They make you bake your own birthday cake? Sheesh! What kind of family are you from Kylie?

I'll be going to the store on my way home from work. I'm out of chicken and hamburger and bread and fresh veggies. We'll see what I feel like fixing after the big shopping trip. It may be take out!

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

We're making a low-country boil with shrimp, clams, potatoes, smoked sausage and corn, along with a green salad.

DH called and will be home late tonight. The local community college is having a job fair looking for adjunct teachers (he's taught drafting and computer drafting before) so he's going to go and see if he can get a job teaching there in the fall. I bought hamburgers and buns and we'll grill those when he gets home. I'll have some potato salad with it.

I'm going to make enchiladas. Depending on how the afternoon goes we will see about red rice, beans, and guacamole. For desert I'm going to try a apricot cake for desert that I saw Jaques Pepin do with plums. This site is fun!

I think I am going to crack open another bag of Trader Joes Mandarin Orange Chicken and use Kayelle's idea of adding onions and green peppers and adding orange juice to the sauce.

Last week I found a recipe for tuna lasagna that I've been wanting to try, so we're having that, along with salad, and a loaf of fresh bread.

I have to got to Costco for office supplies. I'll pick up something for us while I'm there. Maybe the mac and cheese with a rotisserie chicken.

We are trying a new recipe (at least to us) from Emeril. Crawfish-stuffed filet mignon with crawfish bordelaise sauce and wild rice.

Emeralds are real Gems! C. caninus & C. Batesii.
