Menu Ideas for Wednesday August 29th

I will have to wait for DH to wake up and see if he is feeling any better before finalizing plans, but I am hoping to take the thin sirloin steaks I bought on sale the other day and make steak sandwiches with salad and sweet potato fries.

If he isn't up to that, I will probably take out some chicken and make soup!

What are you planning for today?

Hi Laurie.

I'm off to a condo bard meeting tonight so I'll do something quick for myself and dash. I may toss a burger on the grill or have a couple of hot dogs.

I don't think my buns can handle a burger dog or dog burger or whatever.

making 'clean-the-fridge-soup' today. All vegetable. It's a bit wierd and I could use some advice.

first, I lightly sauteed "the Holy Trinity" of soup bases - onion, celery, carrot; fried some mushrooms too, then added a can of diced tomatoes, some frozen spinach balls, frozen broccoli, separately boiled a diced potato, added that....then: an odd thing: rutabaga (it was getting old); steamed it separately and added. I wasn't going to, but couldn't stop nibbling on it, so decided that if I don't add it, I might eat the entire rutabaga myself....so tossed it into the soup pot. Seasoned it with Club House lemon-pepper seasoning.

Now it's so very very thick, I want to add a can of coconut milk, or a bottle of Peri-Peri sauce.....but I just tasted it, and it's not bad as is....(if you like veggies, I guess).

I have to feed my hubby and a laborer he hired to help him build a complex stair to our deck.

It's a hot sunny day.....what was I thinking?

so my question: would you add the coconut milk at least? or more water....or serve it as a vegetable stew? Good grief, it got so huge I had to move it to a larger pot.

How about adding some broth, chicken, beef or vegetable. That would thin it and add some flavor.

BTW, the trinity is celery onion and pepper. Celery, onion and carrots is a mire poix.

I'm going to smoke some ribs to which I'll add a guava/rum glaze. I'll probably boil some tiny new potatoes then flatten them before deep frying served with some kind of dipping sauce

I have chicken thighs in the slow cooker with tomatoes, peppers, onion and garlic. I'll add mushrooms later and serve over rice cacciatore style.

LP- steak sandwiches sound delicious!
