Sunday, 8-20-2017, what's for dinner?

We'll be having our flat bread pizzas. Two with shaved rib eye, with caramelized onion and fennel, cheeses will be papillon bleu and fresh moz. We're also going to try 1 we saw on DDD, with grated Parm R, leeks, a drizzle of thickened cream, thin slices of guanciale, cooked at high heat for a few to bake crust and cook guanciale some, then pull out, crack an egg, back into the heat for a few until egg white just sets, pull out, break open egg, tilt around to spread the yolk, and cut to serve.

We're having pulled pork sandwiches, BBQ beans, corn on the cob and a cold beer.

We had chicken salad on a bed of lettuce and topped with slices of hard-boiled egg. Toasted slices of pain de mie on the side, along with fresh tomato wedges. Vanilla cookie bars for dessert.

We're getting Chinese takeout.

Third world chicken, peanut butter noodles, green salad. At least those are the terms used in this household for decades. The marinade for the chicken was billed as Indonesian, which is a soy / garlic / curry marinade. The noodles were originally called cold sesame noodles, but peanut butter noodles is a more apt description.

Went to our daughter and SILs for dinner. It's easier for them to have us over than to have dinner here, as the grand toddler falls asleep in the car on the way home, and then they have to try to get him back to sleep after he wakes up. I prep dinner and take it to their house. This one was particularly easy, as all that is required it to grill the chicken for 10 minutes, as it's cut into strips. The noodles are one of our daughter's faves.

We follow a similar routine with grand kids as you 10 Speed. Plus, it's easier for us to load the car than it is for them, what with diaper bags, toys for in the car, blankies, etc etc

I made hamburger steak, mashed potatoes and gravy and leftover grilled corn from yesterday.
