Sunday 6-18-17....what's for dinner?

I'm going to make a taco salad. I already had the portioned out cooked and seasoned ground beef in the freezer, it's thawing now. Grape tomatoes are temporarily chillin' in the fridge for a few, along with an avocado. I shredded some pepper jack and cheddar a couple of days ago thinking I would have a taco salad soon, so other than chopping a few other things, there's not much to do to put it together. I could have taco salads a couple of times a week during the summer, and not get tired of it.

What's on your menu?

Cheryl, we're going to do salad as well, way too hot today to cook anything!
I'm making Chef Salad, DH's 2nd favorite salad now, I've been told. His #1 choice in salad is my Chicken Greek Salad, whoda thunk , he's always requested Chef Salad.
I think as a side we'll have some Trader Joe's Sea Salt Pita Bite Crackers.

I held back some of the meatballs I made yesterday and I have a batch of tzatziki in the fridge, so... Warmed up meatballs served with tzatziki and watermelon-feta salad with mint from my garden. Toasted homemade bread with... This just occurred to me... Tzatziki and diced tomato from the farmers market ❤️ If we're still hungry, I'll forage something else. Maybe we'll share a bowl of nachos.

We had quite a bit of leftover sesame noodles and Napa cabbage salad from last night. Grilled some Chef John's rusty chicken thighs to go along with them, and it was a great summertime meal.

My pork butt is almost ready, and my sauce is made -- Carolina style this time. Pulled pork sliders are the end result.

Craig made Paul Prudhomme's chicken an andouille jambalaya, plus 1 of his sauces to go with. I made a chocolate and ricotta cheese brownie.

I had a food extravaganza today for Fathers Day.

My daughters took me out to lunch where I had appetizers for lunch. The hit of the meal was shrimp scampi on baguettes. Outstanding.

Dinner was at home with SO and GD. I reverse seared a couple of rib eyes for SO and me, grilled some zucchini and made a chicken parm with pasta for GD.

The steaks were the best I've cooked using the reverse sear method.

SO then provided rum cake and Rumchata for dessert.

We started out with big, ol' garden salads. The "snow" on the salads is Penzey's Brady Street Cheese Sprinkles - a Penzey's freebie...and worth just that, IMO. We followed that up with baby Brussels sprouts (one of Himself's favorite veggies), fresh corn off the cob sprinkled with Tajin, and cod loins. The cod was baked in a lemon-butter-caper sauce and served over long grain and wild rice mix. It was delicious. I hope Himself isn't expecting a Fathers' Day dessert...I got nuthin'.
