Really, no dinner thread yet?

I mixed together leftover chicken fajita fixings - chicken, onions, bell peppers and sauce - with leftover Mexican rice and put it in a casserole dish in the oven. In a little while, I'll shred some extra-sharp cheddar cheese and put that on top to melt.

To serve, I'll sprinkle it with store-bought fried tortilla strips and mix some Greek yogurt with lime juice, salt and sugar to cool it off. Quick and easy before the Day of Prep tomorrow.

SO called this afternoon and asked if I'd like her to bring home a dozen lobster claws for dinner. I thought about it and said OK!

...and they're all for me because she's allergic to lobster. I have some hot dog rolls in the freezer so lobster rolls it is for dinner.

She's having a salad with HB eggs and ham.

Don't feel like cooking, so we ordered from the local "Southern style BBQ" place. I ordered pork ribs with fries and "sauce piquant fou" (crazy hot, sauce) on the side. Stirling ordered a smoked sausage sandwich with Alabama sauce on the side. I'm getting hungry. I hope that food comes soon.

Well, if you can't finish those lobster claws, Andy, I'd be happy to give you a place you could send them....

I am full of gravy and stuffing right now. Had to taste test for an upcoming family get together.

What's your lobster roll recipe, Andy? I've been browsing through some recipes and nothing really jumps out at me. Maybe they are all really that simple.

I darn near ate too much for lunch again today to feel hungry for dinner, but I'm starting to get hungry so just took some bacon out of the freezer. I'm going to make a take on the Primanti Bros sandwich since I still have the stuff (coleslaw, It bread and tomatoes). I'll add some bacon in with the capicola and make home fries instead of FF's. Some ranch dressing might even find it's way on there.

Busy day doing the weekly marketing and some pre-prep for Thanksgiving. Probably like everyone else, the refrigerator needs to be as empty as possible so, in view of that concept, I took a leftover quantity of spaghetti meat sauce and turned it into lasagna. As it turned out, there was plenty and we'll have leftover lasagna for tomorrow's dinner. Homemade French bread became garlic bread. Iced tea and the last of the coconut cream pie filled out the meal.

Pac, just lobster meat, mayo and buttered toasted hot dog rolls. For me, no celery, I hate the stuff. A little lettuce would have been OK.
