Monday Monday.... Dinner 28 July 2014.

Haven't really done much with posting in dinner threads lately. We haven't cooked as much as we would like.

Today I have some chicken (BS) ready in their little vacuum bags with some Herbs of that there Provence. They will be done at 147F and go in shortly.

To go with em I will have some fried green maters (they are floured with salt and hot shot in the fridge).

And a cuke salad (we are loosing the battle to the cucumber vines.)

So whatcha making for dinner tonight?

I'm thawing a tough piece of steak we bought by mistake. It will go into a low and slow dish smothered in onions, peppers and celery, etc. with gravy.

Simple dinner tonight...hubby's not feeling well today.

Bratwurst stuffed with sharp cheddar cheese wrapped in bacon on the grill, baked beans, and more cucumber salad.

Another one of our one dish wonders: Italian sausage tortellini stir-fry. We slice up yellow squash and zucchini, grape tomatoes, onion, fresh garlic, red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning into a delightful one-course dish. We cook the tortellini separate while we sauté the other ingredients in olive oil. We then combine, dish up and add a generous topping of coarse-grated Parmesan/Romano cheese for a quick and satisfying meal.

Salad--kale, chard, garden lettuce, tomato, cucumber, sprouts, dehydrated blueberries, peanuts, shredded parm., grated zucchini and golden beets, dressed with EVOO and some of the "OMG, is this good" raspberry vinegar that I made, S&P.

I think I'll be having a grilled cheese sandwich and a medley of veggies that I overbought again at the local farm stand yesterday.

I made a cuke-and-onion vinegar salad earlier that is resting. I also made dessert: peach, cherries, blueberries and orange bits. It will get a dab of vanilla ice cream to make it dessert-y. Meanwhile, I have a number of chicken breasts I need to grill up. Two will be put away for future dinners this week, two will be turned into sandwiches for tonight: Challah rolls, chicken, bacon, cheese, tomato and lettuce. A tossed salad of some kind will precede it all.

My own rollmops, tzatziki, beetroot, green salad. Followed by homemade fruit salad.

Glass of red wine afterwards.

Glad to hear your tackling that tough steak..you just can't beat Swiss Steak.
Well maybe, Swedish meatballs.

Sorry about hubby, CCL. You just gave me my menu for tonight but I'm fresh out of cucumbers.
