I'm on my own tonight. Buck will be attending his usual Lions Club dinner meeting. I'll see what's in the fridge or...make popcorn. Only time will tell where my taste buds will take me.

Tomato Paella (almost), and sauteed shrimp w garlic, butter, evoo & parsley. Found my inspiration here:

The Wednesday Chef: Mark Bittman's Tomato Paella

Don't have saffron on hand, so it won't be an actual paella, but will sub out with oregano or basil, throw about two handfulls of shrimp into a skillet w evoo, butter & garlic - then serve the shrimp over the tomato (not really)paella with garlic bread. Have blueberries on hand I need to use up... so vanilla pudding topped with blue berries.

it`s kinda hard to say as it doesn`t have a name, it`s an Own recipe.

cut a block of mozerella up into long fat strips, marinade them in liquid smoke, a bit of salt, garlic grans and tobasco.

then wrap them then filo pastry and deep fry them.

I`m doing the same with chili hot`n`spicy hotdogs but making a Corn flour batter for them (like Corndogs without the sweet stuff).

Monday Night Football is grilling night. The menu varies but the cooking method doesn't. Tonight, we're having brats topped with kraut, some broccoli salad that I set aside from the double batch I made to take to dinner last night and some corn relish that the hostess sent home with us.

We're grilling chicken, I"ll probably top it with some bbq sauce, and will have that with homemade mac and cheese and brocoli with garlic and red pepper.

Thanks for the link Amy. This stuff looks heavenly and easy enough to prepare. I don't really care for saffron but basil sounds great.

We are just having a big salad with butter lettuce, diced avocado and lots of crab with a louis dressing..i am adding ome chopped tomatoes and cucumbers to it..DH just loves it and so I decided to give him a treat. I made some french bread and will slice up some of that and pull some onion soup from the freezer...That should take care of all of us nicely..Baked apples filled with mascarpone,toasted pine nuts and brown sugar if the mood strikes..

Well, it's just me and the twins tonight. It's been raining most of the morning, so I decided to make Drunken Pintos, Mexican Rice, and Cornbread. The beans are cooking as I type. I'm going to start on the cornbread in about 20 minutes. Then do a few extra steps for the beans, and do the rice. Of course, the sun's been out now for about 30 minutes. It was supposed to be the other way around, with rain happening this evening. Sometimes you just never know...............
