S - A - TUR - DAY DINNER! (August 31)

Ah the Bee Gees. Gotta love 'em.

I'm trying to decide between a rib roast for dinner or smokies over the firepit. I have to wait til the kiddos get up to decide for sure.

I think you mean the Bay City Rollers!

I have lots of veggies and a couple of pork chops, so I will probably pan-grill them and saute some veggies. Unless I can get DH to hook up the propane tank to the grill so we can grill outside.

Gonna make Saturday dinner. Stayin' alive, stayin' alive.

I think I'll cook up some linguine and finish off the creamy curry chicken from the other night. Maybe grill a couple ears of corn, too.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I snagged an 8 ounce piece of beef tenderloin for $2.50 at my little hometown market this morning. It's not pretty, the flat tail section. I'll pan fry it with lots of cracked pepper and a splash of cognac at the end.

So tonight it's steak and a side salad!

Saturday Night Dinner!!! Must be a BeeGees week, I did my CPR recert this week.

Anyway, over on the Wild Boar thread they were talking about...Pork roast with Garlic and Onion gravy, that sounds most excellent, think I'll toss in some mushrooms.

I'm making Turkey Necks with Noodles:


I made a couple of changes: instead of salt, I used Beef Bouillion granules, plus, I cooked the noodles in the broth from the turkey necks.

I used the beef bouillion instead of salt.

I am going to add a drained can on baby sweet peas.

The broth left over goes in the freezer.

That looks like a great menu, Beth! You are lucky to have that type of restaurant nearby.

We're having a couple of friends over for dinner. I'm making Spanish style Arroz con Pollo, with a cucumber salad on the side.

Normally I would grill but it's hotter than heck, so running the stove is the lesser of two evils.

Found some leftover roast pork in the freezer so that's going to be an ingredient in tacos for tonight's dinner.
