Dinner Wednesday, 7-8-2015 ~ Hey, good-lookin'...

...whacha got cookin'? Here, it's nothing. Not that we won't eat, but that I have enough leftovers for...well, maybe the rest of the week? I did plan it that way though (honest!), so that I just might head to the basement and price garage sale items. Our table of plenty will have burgers, bratwurst, grilled chicken, pizza and ham. A bit of potato salad, the last of the bulgur mix, some rice. Of course, there will be salad. It's the only thing I have to make from scratch.

What's your dinner plan? Cooking, reheating, take-away, or just chillin'?

I'm defrosting a meal of pasta sauce with shredded short ribs to go over some pasta. A salad will round out the meal.

I have thawing some chunks of cod, will garlic and parsley them, and steam up a bunch of broccoli.

I'm going to grill that Ortega burger that I wanted yesterday. I think I'll make a small potato salad to go with it.

You've got just the ticket Cheryl. I was grasping at what to make as a side dish today. I have some misc veggies that will go nicely in a small Potato salad. Main dish is going to be a package of Johnsonville brats simmered in beer and onions, then grilled. Whole wheat hoagie buns and sauerkraut and mustard. Perfect. I can either refrigerate or freeze the extras for future meals.

We are having cauliflower fritters with a citrus/teriyaki dipping sauce, avocado and cucumber rolls, and panko encrusted onion rings, 'cos why not?

I'm in the mood to make a batch of my spaghetti meat sauce as I think I have everything I need on hand. There's no point in making just enough for a pasta dinner tonight. I better get going......my sweet SousChef will make it an easier adventure.

So anyway, it's Italian dinner at this house tonight.

Nice pic of your lasagna and salad, cwtch! Looks fantastic.

Whisk, glad you were inspired by potato salad. I make it often in the summer, it's a no-fail side and will go great with your brats.

Nickee....OMGosh, what a great sounding meal!
