Dinner Thursday April 3/2014

Hey all, my connection to DC has been a bit spotty this week but it seems to be all fixed today. What's on the table tonight?

I'm leaving a cute little chicken done in the clay baker. Stuffed with onions, garlic and rubbed with lemon and herbs, sitting on carrots, taters and more onions. There is a salad to be had and some sauteed veggies too.

I picked up a boneless pork loin on sale Saturday. I'm going to cut a couple of chops off one end then slice it open jellyroll style and stuff it. I have mushrooms, shallots, red bell pepper, cheeses and maybe even some Genoa salami or pepperoni. Some combination of these will make a stuffing.

I ended up having some pasta with melted butter, parmesan and fresh ground pepper, with some Greek salad on the side.

Andy, YUM!!! We had a tenderloin the night before last, but I just rolled it in peppercorns and tossed it on the grill. (I don't care if there IS still snow out there, we're BBQing!)

And oops...its Thursday not Wednesday. Sorry all.

Thanks, Alix. I ended up using pancetta and parm with the veggies I mentioned. Now I have to work on sides.

I'm thinking ABTs in the oven and twice baked potato.

I would love to do them on the grill Alix, but it's still under a pile of snow.

I was going to make Pad Thai but my shrimp were frost bit. And we both really had a craving for BBQ so we did some strip loins I got on sale and was saving for the weekend.

Sides were Greek salad, avocado slices and mushrooms piled on the steaks.

It was yummy!

Beer can chicken. Besides the rub I may put some BBQ sauce on it, too.
The store had artichoke hearts on sale so I picked up a couple jars. I'll probably do something with one of the jars and some pasta for a side.

baked chicken. I was thinking mashed potatoes, but there seems to be plenty of room on the oven shelf, so baked it is. Corn or green beans on the side.
