Friday June 1st 2012 Dinner Thread

Tonight we will be attending my nieces graduation. One will be going to 1st grade the other will be going to Kindergarten. So not exactly sure what we will do about supper. Got some chicken breast but not sure what to cook. Any suggestions?

What are you having tonight?

DD and her boyfriend have offered to make dinner tonight, and I'm more than happy to pass the potholders to the kids.

I am a little concerned, though, that they may be biting off more than they can chew. Neither of them cook all that much, but they've decided on a pretty labor-intensive meal: four-cheese ravioli, salad, and bread from scratch.

I salute them for their ambition, but I'm not sure they realize what they're getting into.

Steamed asparagus topped with breadcrumbs fried in butter, a Caesar salad, and maybe some frikadellen

I have some hamburger in the fridge that needs cooked. Not sure what it will end up being. We've had tacos, hamburgers and spaghetti this week so I may try a new goulash recipe or find a casserole to make with it.

Just open an extra bottle of wine, it will be fine!

I think pizza at my place tonight!

I don't recall ever graduating kindegarten or first grade... they just moved me on Probably happy to see me go

I'm undecided tonight. I'm hoping I have some kind or red sauce in the freezer I can pull out for some spaghetti. It's miserable here today and a big plate of spaghetti would go down well.

Psst, Steve, you can always make a "Possibles Pouch" and keep it in your vehicle.

Its shopping day for us, so still undicided.

I haven't decided yet and am hoping I'll get slapped with a bolt of inspiration when I graze through the freezer.

We've had a pretty lazy week mealwise this week because we've pressed our new gas grill into service whole bunches and we've had plenty of leftovers to fill in the gaps. This means there will have to be some "real" cooking today. Hmmmm?

It's a bit cooler outside today so, perhaps, I'll make a soup- or chili-type meal. I think I feel a nugget of inspiration beginning to surface.....
