Dinner Tues Aug. 11

For the first time in my memory, there wasn't a dinner thread yesterday.

Today's another day!

We're doing a shrimp stir fry of some kind tonight. I'll fill in the blanks later.
What's on your menu tonight?

We need to find out who's responsible and begin the floggings immediately.

Tonight's dinner will be chicken with pickled peppers over rice. It's a take-off of a Lidia recipe.

Calamari fra diavolo. Local supermarket had fresh squid, and it's cool enough to use the oven.

tenspeed, that was my thought, too. 70 and rainy? Perfect baking/roasting weather.

I'm making turkey mini meat loaves, mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli with that last little bit of cauliflower tossed in. Maybe a salad, maybe dessert. Never got around to making the blueberry crumble yesterday. Like Scarlett said, tomorrow is another day.

I figured we'd done one better, turning "Meatless Monday" into "Mealless Monday".

Oh, no, I ate! Leftover smoked barbecue pulled beef and potato salad

I'm going to make tzatziki with my last garden cucumber and grill some pork chops with Penzey's Greek seasoning. I'll also roast some more garden tomatoes and then braise some green beans with the tomatoes and some onions and garlic. I'm also going to make seasoned pita chips. Need to get started!

Ohh noooo.......I ate last night too. We had Italian meat ball subs, but no picture. I don't remember doing it, but the freezer surprise was labeled "6 meatballs in pasta sauce".

We ate, too! It was going to be leftovers, but that garden tomato (from someone else's garden) was calling my name. We had grilled cheese and tomato sammies on Panera's "Country White" miche. We may not have gone "mealless", but we finally remembered "meatless".

A "miche" loaf is nearly a double-wide version of their standard loaf, so that was "supper", along with extra slices of 'mater. Fresh strawberries with a touch of ice cream was savored later.

Darn it, the pita bread is no good I think I'll skip the starch and make small Greek salads. I have all the ingredients and we should eat them while we still have fresh garden produce.
