Saturday Night's Alright for Eating! Aug 9, 2014

Mrs. K texted me a rather strange request while I was at the farmer's market this morning: "Can we have shrimp & grits tonight?"

Now I've only made shrimp and grits once, and that was maybe a couple of years ago. So when I got home I asked where this request had come from. Apparently, while she was in New York City last week, one of her co-workers ordered it at a restaurant, and she thought it looked very good. So good, in fact, that she's been secretly craving it all week.

So shrimp and grits it shall be.

Sounds good, Steve.

I am planning grilled steak for TB and grilled turkey cutlet for me. I will do some potatoes, mushrooms and onions in the grill basket and salad on the side.

Actually I will probably cut my turkey up and put it in my salad as it goes down easier that way. I think I will have Ceasar and make Greek for TB.

We're going to have my version of Swiss steak with mashed potatoes. I've already cut all the vegetable for the steak and peeled and cubed the potatoes. Tea is made and chilling and there are plenty of root beer cookies for dessert.

I just put a still partially frozen ham in the oven. I'll make macaroni and cheese and broccoli to go with.

Talking I'm SOOOOO happy

Back in May DH & I went back East to mind the grand-nephews and their puppy (I use that term loosely). Well, puppy took Auntie for a walk, face first, along the concrete sidewalk.... 2 black eyes, a broken nose, a sprained wrist and shoulder and a split lip ... I haven't been able to eat some foods, so my absolutely fabulous husband took me to Five Guys Burgers and Fries for early lunch.

I'm a thinking that I'm so full that we may not need dinner WHAT?! No! We'll probably just have a small salad with some leftover grilled chicken in it.

I'm marinating some chicken. It's a "tandoori" marinade. We will grill it. I'm figuring out sides, but probably a salad and brown basmati rice.
