Happy Friday! What's For Dinner on 7/1/16?

I have ribs "pre-cooking" in the oven right now, and will finish them later on the grill. I also made coleslaw to go along with it, and for dessert there's strawberry shortcake.

It's a few hours until dinner time, but I had to taste test the shortcake in the interest of quality control.

Just returned from a 10 day small ship cruise along the west coast of Italy, so I'm inspired to make some Italian (sort of) dishes. Forecast is for thundershowers this evening, so I'm making Ligurian lemon chicken thighs in the pressure cooker.

Fagor America : Ligurian lemon chicken

We followed the old advice of "When in Italy, eat and drink like a Roman". Somehow, I didn't gain any weight. However, I'm going to tone it down for a bit. Sides for the chicken is corn on the cob and a green salad. Definitely no tiramisu afterwards.

Steve, your SS looks delish!

To add more to Craig's post, we had Korean seafood, scallion pancakes and galbi that were absolutely divine. Also had udon pork curry soup and pork bulgogi that were very good. The banchan served with were all very good as well, especially the pickled daikon and spicy cucumber. Also included kale, which I have never liked, steamed with sesame seeds and sesame oil. That could convert me with maybe a little more cooking of the kale. Excellent restaurant and I'll definitely be leaving a good review for them.

I got sick and puked tonight. No idea why. It came from nowhere. I feel better now but I can't eat a meal today. I have a lovely ripe cantaloupe that I may have later.

I guess only a handful of us are eating tonight (and others are vomiting, lol. Sorry to hear, Liz).

So my ribs came out falling off the bone and delicious. The photo doesn't really do it justice.

I fixed a goulash of fried potatoes, cubed smoked ham, garden onions and garlic, and green pepper. One of DH's sons is in from Austin for the week; neat kid.

I had a small container of chicken chili in the freezer, so I stretched it out with some leftover rotisserie chicken and a can of Rotel with cheese, onion and cilantro on the top.

I'd love to have some of that Strawberry Shortcake Steve! Is there a secret to the shortcake?

Well, that was (not) fun. Reading along, imagining people's dinners and suddenly - "I puked." Thanks so much for letting us know. Kinda kills my interest in describing my meal.
