dinner tonight ? 7/26

I've decided on shrimp tacos with an avocado sauce instead of the usual taco sauce, and to go on the tacos, some chopped onion, cilantro,peppers if anyone wants more, lettuce and tomato, also some spicy chicken soup that I had frozen..For something to munch before hand some spicy peanuts and a grilled cheese type thing with onion, chilles,olives, tomato diced and put on top and you scoop some up with tortilla chips to eat it.
dessert don't really know but it will be something easy, cool and light
What do you have planned?

Pds,
I've never cooked venison, but ate it as a kid. My grandmother made some type of stew out of it. I have a recipe for venison stew that uses olives, mushrooms parsley,onions, red wine, thyme, dry mustard if you don't find something that catches your eye.

Kads, your shrimp tacos sound great! I've been craving seafood lately and they'd hit the spot. Would you mind sharing your avocado sauce recipe? It sounds interesting!

I'm not sure what we're doing for dinner tonight. Once Sofie has her afternoon nap, she and I are going back over to the hospital to visit DH's grandma again. She's doing well but needs some company and we're happy to visit. It's a 40 minute drive so I have a feeling we'll be hitting rush hour on the way home and Sofie still isn't keen on long car rides. This might be a pick up subs/pizza kind of evening.

Thanks Kadesma! The deer has been thawed since yesterday though.. I don't think I should let it sit over night again. I'll do your recipe next time though. It sounds good!!!
