Dinner - Thursday, 5-28-15

I have quite a bit of kale left from when I made Zuppa Toscana recently, so I'm going to build a skillet dinner around that. Just going to wing it so I can use up a bunch of bits and pieces of things.

I found a couple of brats in the freezer, along with some chopped tri color peppers, and chopped onions. I thought I'd cook up some orzo, mix everything together in the skillet, maybe with a bit of chicken broth, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Hopefully it'll be good, it sounds good in my mind.

Sliced fresh tomato on the side.

What's on everyone's plate for today?

Spaghetti and salads here. The older boy is coming over to dinner (his wife is working) and the younger son will be home in time to eat too.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Today was a running around day. I went with SO to have her broken pinkie finger re-casted, then to pick up a new dehumidifier from Home Depot, then to Costco for some StretchTite and then to grocery shopping. Torrential downpours interrupted our endeavors.

All that to justify eating leftovers out of the freezer along with a salad.

Did some fridge/pantry scavenging and decided upon this for dinner:
Chicken Basil Sausage, Dreamfields Rotini pasta, Diced tomatoes of which I'll season and stew into a sauce, Italian cut Green Beans & Texas Toast.

We're going to sit down and watch the Rangers/Red Sox game tonight on TV. Hoping that there is no Rain Delay. Weather around here has been pretty rainy lately. Debating on building an Ark this weekend...<grin>

I finished the rest of the bucket of salad I brought home yesterday. I added some marinated tofu that I pan-fried.

We went out for date night to a local Greek resto. I had butterfly shrimp and Stirling had chicken brochettes. It was really good. Stirling had cheesecake for dessert and I had baklava.
