Dinner Thursday, January 28, 2016

I defrosted large shrimp last night and will be cleaning the shells off shortly. Since I just washed a freshly purchased bunch of parsley last night, I see "Shrimp, Scampi style" on our plates tonight. How it gets plated is up in the air right now - details to follow later.

What are your plans?

I was a bad girl when we did our marketing on Tuesday. Two beautiful steaks marked "managers special" practically shouted our names, so into the cart they went. I rationalized that since I'm supposed to be upping my protein intake, they were a necessary purchase. Hey, worked for me. Rationalization is a beautiful thing!

The steaks will be grilled outside and we'll have sides of sauteed fresh mushrooms and a healthy serving of Gouda grits. Glenn's daughter made the grits as one of the sides for Christmas dinner and they were awesome. Came from the December 2015 issue of Southern Living magazine. Ive never had, nor prepared, anything from that publication that wasn't wonderful. I have a feeling we're going to be little piggies tonight.

Didn't get the turkey salad made so will go with an omelet. We are eating light in preparation for dancing tonight.

Hamburger something. I need to get inspired soon.

I braised short ribs in red wine with rosemary & thyme. Will serve over polenta and a salad on the side.

Either an omelette, or a tuna melt and a fruit salad.

We had lunch out today, so wanted to keep it simple tonight. It's still above freezing, so it's burgers on the grill, along with oven fries. Grilling out around here at the end of January is thumbing your nose at winter!

Tonight I roasted a couple of bone-in chicken breasts and a potato. I was still hungry, so I toasted a French roll I made last weekend and... dragged it through the chicken juices on the roasting pan. Oh yum

I knew my friends here would understand
