Dinner tonight - Sept.20, '07

With leftovers mostly gone 'ceptin a portion of rice/barley and a smidge of tenderloin so tonight it'll be this tri tip recipe that I found online, looks good to me anyway...


Mashed yams {Nanna style}, glazed carrots because DH loves, the heirlooms I got at Von's yesterday, sliced with balsamic and olive oil, garlic and basil, parm cheese a top slices, and tonight, yep, I'll make those lava cakes. Off to the market, as I now need oodles of butter thanks to Miss Paula Deen.

How 'bout you, what ya making on this fine rainy Thursday? Anyone gonna catch the first Survivor tonight? DH is gonna flip as it's now set up to Tivo until finished, he hates reality anything.

Red Beans and rice, with smoked sausage and a bit of pig.
Little salad on the side, nice Pale Ale to wash it all down.

Where's my Beano?

Yesterday, on sale, major sale, at our local supermarket [if you had/have their card that is] was tri tip. I bought 3 of them, the smallest is what I'm using to make my recipe for tonight. The two others are huge though, and one was $28, I got it for $8 the other was $32, I got it for $9.50. Is this the complete wrong kind of meat to use for either Bucky's pot roast or that foil package thingie? I'm thinking many of you will say yes as tri tip is a nice piece of beef and maybe should be used as such.

DD and I are on our own tonight so it's a vegetarian meal with veggies that doesn't like! I'm making fresh spinach and cheese ravioli tossed with sauteed fresh baby spinach and an arrabbiata sauce, broccoli sauteed with fresh garlic and red pepper flakes, and fruit salad. If we have room after than, I think I'll treat us to some strawberry ice cream, Sofie's favorite.

Meatless for us tonight, so dinner will be Italian Zucchini Crescent Pie, which includes sliced zucchini, onions, basil, garlic, shredded Muenster, eggs, all put together and baked in a crescent roll crust.

We've been without an oven for two weeks now. The repair guys were here this morning to replace the targeted part. Put it in. Oven still didn't work. They said they might get back to me early next week or by Thursday. That'll be three weeks with no oven.

Fortunately, we have been "eating down" the freezer, so most of our meals (except for tonight's, of course) are reheated in the microwave. Looks like Mr. Crock-pot is going to do an encore. At least we have our nice big toaster oven.
