March 22, 2014.....what's for dinner?

My daughter and grandson are coming over this afternoon. It's a beautiful day for grilling, so I pulled some chicken thighs out of the fridge. We'll have asparagus with it, and since I still have tons of fruit to use up, a nice fruit salad. Strawberry ice cream for dessert.

What's on everyone's menu today?

Not sure. I'm defrosting something and as soon as I know what it is, that'll be dinner.

I'm in the middle of a cake order so dinner is often order in. It is also a celebration as when TB finishes his shift at 5 pm his is finally off morning shift after 6 months. (He hates mornings.)

That said, I am going to try and make either fried chicken or cacciatore around the cake. Neither has to go in the oven so that helps. We have both been having problems with our food intolerances so eating out is not really a good thing.

I'm going to make the indoor-grilled garlic-and-thyme sausages and par-cooked potatoes with salad that I planned yesterday.

Now you're sounding like me, Andy. I hope you find more than gravy.

I'm going to have a mess of crab legs. I might cook some asparagus and potatoes, too.

I was going to stir-fry up some pork tenderloin to have along side of the risotto but might not get there. Have a huge blister on the roof of my mouth. I soooo love risotto!

Note to self: use only white mushrooms for chicken based risotto. Ok to use brown mushrooms for beef based risotto. Much prettier.

2nd note to self: stop test tasting and burning your mouth!

Looks aside, I bought some white mushrooms the other day. They were on sale so I figured what the hey. I found them sorely lacking in flavor. I guess I have gotten too used to crimini. If I was making a salad I'd use white, but I won't buy them again to cook.

DH took pork steak out of the freezer.
I hope I can come up with something different to do with them...

I sort of agree Pacanis, I almost always buy the brown crimini for their deeper flavour. But I'm learning it is not always better!

Should actually put this one in the disaster thread. Did Chef John's Creme of Mushroom Soup. chucked out the whole thing. Rather upset with myself. All those mushrooms!

They looked like mud and the taste was not delicate at all. It was disgusting.

Somebunny, slice up a bunch of onion and apples, any apple juice on hand? - if not, canned pears work too! Little garlic, herbs de provence, extra thyme, bay leaf.... yummy
