Friday Dinner Aug. 28

I'm putting together a casserole of Costco rotisserie chicken with a Ranch dressing influence. I'll report back later and if it turns out well, I'll be glad to post the recipe for anyone interested.

What's going on in your kitchen today?

No kitchen tonight. Split chicken breasts grilled over charcoal and mesquite, fresh corn, coleslaw with a sweet herb vinaigrette dressing, and grilled veggies.

The veggie stir-fry I put off yesterday is going to be put on today. Grilling some corn on the cob, bell peppers, onion add some pea pods and tomato season with some seasoning combo or other and away we go. SO brought home some naan to go with it in place of the rice I had planned to make yesterday.

105F today, I'm not going anywhere near the stove. I'll be putting together a tray of no-cook goodies for an early dinner this afternoon. TJ's eggplant hummus and pita wedges, a simple salad of grape tomatoes, cucumber and red onion dressed with Romano Caesar dressing, sliced smoked gouda and cheddar, and watermelon.

That and the AC turned up, some iced tea with lemon wedges, and a good movie will be just fine.

Yesterday I made fresh pasta with Semolina, MMM.
I had loads of everything leftover, so today is a repeat of last night...
Red Sauce that was the wedding favor at the bestest wedding ever in Ohio earlier this month.
Lovely Sweet Italian Sausages from Costco.
Throw in some Italian bread from Trader Joe's, a green salad with home made white balsamic vinaigrette and of course a glass of wine.

Tonight we had tomato soup, toasted cheese sandwiches and sliced yellow tomatoes ( which a friend gave us). They were very good on the sandwiches.
