Labor Day Dinner....Monday 9-7-15

Not sure yet here.

I'm kind of leaning towards either a big plate of homemade nachos, or a loaded up tostada. I was thinking about grilling, but the wind is coming up so I'll do that another day.

What's on your plate?

No family backyard picnic for this holiday. We are going to a local VFW/ Am Legion for a steak barbecue. Fund raiser for them, good price for us. I think the last one of these we went to (elsewhere) you could ask for your steak cooked to whatever temperature and they brought out plates and platters, all cooked the same. Over done. Maybe this time will be different. I am practicing chewing exercises while I type this. But still, no cooking for me and it's still tasty.

Plans keep changing. It looks like we are going to a concert of the Grateful Dead music, which starts right about dinner time. Maybe just some corn on the cob before we leave.

Chicken and Tasso jambalaya with collard greens. Trying to figure a dessert using vanilla wafers, cherry jam and heavy whipping cream. Any ideas?

I have a 10# pork loin in the fridge right now, so we'll have pork chops on the grill. And later this week. And still three chunks will go in the freezer...if I can find space. I also bought fresh corn, so Himself will grill four of them for tonight and I'll micro and clean the other four to freeze. I plan on making Fattoush for our salad, so I'd better get busy.

Strawberry shortcake Goddess style tonight: angelfood cake, sliced berries, and ice cream. Not authentic, but gooo-oood!

We had our Labor Day cookout Sunday. Tonight's dinner will be a salad and pot stickers with a homemade dipping sauce. Leftover dessert from yesterday tonight. Either Chocolate eclair dessert or lemon squares.
