Dinner Wednesday 9-25-2013 ~ Hump Day Home Cookin'...

...or take-out or dine-out. What are your plans? And what will you be eating?

I'm making a small pot of Asian chicken soup, salad, Barber chicken breasts stuffed with lobster and scallop stuffing (mostly bread, but still tastes good) and sauteed zucchini and summer squash because last night's dinner turned out to be plenty without cooking the squashes too.

IF I find some energy I'll bake a small apple pie. Got some Pink Lady variety to use that way and I'm running out of good-enough-to-use-them time.

Just got home from the local "farm" where they have apple picking, hay rides and a hay bale maze for the kids. Grandson would still be on the hay bales running and jumping if I didn't divert his attention with the promise of some apple cider donuts in the farm store.

As I don't feel like starting a big dinner, we're having burgers on the grill and a salad tonight.

The yungun requested meatball subs last night but I didn't have all the fixin's so I made sure to get the stuff when I went to the grocery store. So that's what we'll have for supper tonight.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

More shepherd's pie and maybe some soup from the pressure cooker to round things out.

Hmmmmm....well, let's see. It goes sort of like this. We were going to have leftover fried chicken from last night but, this morning, Glenn suggested we go to Paris. So we did.

Paris, Tennessee, that is. While there we stopped at our favorite barbecue place and gobbled up a couple of their awesome sandwiches and, of course, had to come home with a nice, big slab of their barbecued pork ribs.

So, tonight's supper will be barbecued ribs, homemade baked beans, slaw, iced tea, and zucchini bread. No doubt, we'll be nicely satisfied.

Good thing you included dining out and carry out, CG, as so many of our members lead busy lives when it comes to home cookin'.

Me, I have no life, so it's home cookin' here. I plan on making the dinner I was going to make last night tonight, only tonight I'm calling it creamed chicken over mashed potatoes The sour dough bread disappeared this morning when I reheated my Viking porridge and put three eggs on top
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I made "Spicy Tuna & Chickpea Patties" today. They were okay, but nothing special. I also made a "Salted Honey Fudge and Chocolate Tart" which was a lot more effort but it came out pretty well. (Apart from the honeycomb that was supposed to decorate the top - that was a total failure!)
