Ruby Tuesday Dinner Aug. 23rd

I'm going to try Marcella Hazan's basic tomato sauce recipe. Three ingredients, tomato, onion and butter.

It's been getting a lot of attention lately so I pulled out my copy of her book and did some reading. There are a number of tomato sauce recipes that I may try from time to time.

I'll complete the meal with spaghetti (gotta put that sauce on something) and a salad.

What are your plans?

With tonight's title, I figured you and SO were headed to a local Ruby Tuesday's in case it was going to be closed.

I'm going old-school and lazy tonight. Fried bologna sandwiches on marble rye bread, and "Honeymoon salad with a sunburn". The salad is actually "lettuce alone" with chopped tomato on top. If Himself wants anything else in his salad, I won't get in his way.

I thought you were going to Ruby Tuesday, too

I'm going to grill some country-style pork ribs and corn on the cob, and serve with caprese salad.

We had bratwurst, mash and saurkraut, well I had the kraut and the others had peas, but my kid did taste it and said I was weird.

Count me in for thinking that too, Andy.

cakepoet...my adult daughters still think I'm weird for liking sauerkraut.

Not sure yet about tonight's dinner. It's a toss up between a clean out the veggie bin salad, and huevos rancheros. Hmmmm......decisions....

I see you all have a one track mind. When I think Ruby Tuesday, I think...

Andy, Mick sounds horrid in that cut! And yes, I've had that earworm going ever since I saw this thread. :D

Just sitting down to dinner right now. I'm having a smoked poke chop and a salad with homemade creamy avocado dressing. Avocados were on sale this week. I ended up buying a dozen.

Me, too...about the going to Ruby Tuesday thought. Sure wish we still had one near us. Loved their salad buffet.

Been a busy and hectic day here today. Don't ask.

We're having Cajun-spiced fresh salmon, buttered baby lima beans, baked potatoes, iced tea and a variety of fudge we purchased at a "candyland" on our way home from Lexington on Saturday.

Ruby Tuesday Dinner Aug. 23rd

We were going to have strips of pork loin that were trimmings from when I made the porchetta, but when I pulled the figs out ,they went in the garbage and I told Craig change of plans. So, we ended up with a potato and fennel braise in cream and chicken stock on the stove, pulled out with a slotted spoon and into a baking dish, topped with rosemary, thyme, orange zest and parm, then broiled. Pork was marinaded with garlic, rosemary, lemon juice and olive oil, sauteed and is finishing up in the oven. I'll make a quickie pan sauce with some of the liquid from the potato, fennel braise and some butter.
