Dinner Wed 9/13

I have no idea what I'll be having. My boys and I went out of town for 5 days then we came back to a hungry dh and an empty fridge. Since dh is working today, I had planned to go into town to get groceries but both the kids came down with a cold yesterday.

I do have some goat cheese. Any ideas?

What are the rest of you having today?

Cleaning out a fridge AGAIN! We are both going back to UK Tomorrow, then husband will move into our permanant base in Italy on Monday. I haven't cooked here but we have LOADS of salad and a melon. So thats what it is. The pizza place next door does a margerita for 3euros so might have one of those as we have no bread or anything.

Do you have pasta and some fresh tmato and olives? You could make a nice pasta with a crumbley goats cheese, or a rustic pizza?

Not sure yet, like to make some chicken noodle soup - but no carrots-- grrr. Might be just burgers on the grill, and french fries - (if rain stops).

Sheila's got a bowling league tonight, so it'll probably be one of my favorite meals - BEER AND PIZZA!!!!!

But, what beer? And what to have on the pizza? Decsions, decisions...

Mexican or Italian lasagna? Don't know which yet but have some sirloin tip in the fridge that I will ground up and add to the lasagna. Now that I think about it, it'll have to be Italian since I only have mozzarella.

lulu, do you mind just buying a couple of PM's and send me some across the great pond

dinner tonight is easy. it's the leftovers from the last two nights as my frig is overflowing. last night special meal for hubby's birthday was really nice. those recipes from Sunset were worth every bit of effort and the dinner from Jacks Famous bbq on his official birthday, is still hanging around too, so between the two, we have plenty. but now you've got me thinking as I have goat cheese, tons of yard tomatoes and I collect olives of all sorts in my "kitchen store" aka pantry

^^^^^^^^^^Sunset Magazine^^^^^^^^^

Cider brined pork chops with sauteed apples
Grilled chipotle chicken quesadillas
Chanterelle potato salad with pancetta, shallots, thyme
Ginger rosemary lemon drop cocktails
Israeli couscous with fresh peas and mint
Baby green beans with lemon, garlic and bacon
Garlic bread
Lemon tube cake with lemon pudding cream inside

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
That was dinner last night.

Nope, we don't have either. I think the only reason there's goat cheese in the fridge is because dh doesn't like it. There is a tiny grocery store up the road and they usually have mushrooms, if not much else. I'd really like some spinach and pears too but that is wishful thinking. I think it will be pasta tonight.

Today our dog, Seijo, is having her 5th birthday. I only just realized. Poor girl, she get to spend an unhappy day at home with 2 sick kids. She did go on a great hike with dh on Mon though, maybe that counts.

Pizza tonno and jupiler lager

I'm still trying to decide if I'll be having pizza or meatballs and green beans in tomato sauce
