Monday 9/25/2017 What’s the menu plan?

Well I will be going grocery shopping later so the possibilities are unlimited. But seeing as strip/shell steaks are on sale ($4.99/lb.) that could be dinner. DD expressed interest in a nice Italian hero if I can find the “good” sesame seed rolls. Update later.

What are your plans?

It's National Lobster Day, but they were up to $5.99 / lb. today, so I'll pass. I'll be using the KA food grinder for my first home ground beef burgers on the grill. Caprese salad on the side.

I'm hosting our condo board meeting tonight so dinner is closely planned for after the meeting.

We're having a Costco rotisserie chicken I had purchased and frozen a while back. That's thawed in the fridge and ready to pop into the oven to reheat. I'll be making pilaf to go with it and SO is responsible for a salad.

Asian chicken thighs, rice and, probably steamed broccoli..

If I get off my duff, I'll bake an Alton Brown recipe of upside down peach cake... if not, it will be chocolate pudding..

Nothing wrong with chocolate pudding, Ross.

I need to use up some baby spinach and I'm not in the mood for a standard salad. Thinking about making tuna salad and deviled eggs, then tossing the spinach with oo/lemon juice/white balsamic vinegar/herb blend, and using that as a bed for the tuna, eggs, and some of last night's leftover potato salad.

Better get crackin'...eggs, that is.

Leftover grazing tonight. I need to clear the fridge of cooked foods before I cook anything new. Waste not, want not.

Small plates tonight. The last 2 pieces of the foie gras torchon i made with micro greens, toasts, and black pepper caramel. Second plate is ratatouille surrounded by escargot and toasts. I'm getting ready to put together a peach crisp using crushed gingersnaps for part of the crumble "flour."

I have a good sized chunk of left over tri tip roast from the other night. I'm planning on doing tacos with that.

Well, this was a learning experience. Burgers were pretty dry, as I never realized how much fat is in a burger. Recipe will be adjusted accordingly next time.
