Sunday Dinner 8/30/15

I plan on spending the afternoon in the kitchen making chile rellenos, but haven't decided on the widely varying recipes for the dish, guacamole, green chile sauce and looking into Spanish rice.

What are your plans?

Beth, right now in Mexico they have Chiles Rellenos en Nogada. I've always wanted to try them, everyone raves about them. They're seasonal, and sadly are not available when we're down there: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiles_en_nogada

I made tuna salad. We'll probably have sliced tomato and cukes with it.

I found a package of marinated beef kebabs in the freezer. That, some pilaf and a leftover veggie dish for dinner. SO's delicious carrot cake for dessert.

I bought a small piece (3/4 #) of scrod yesterday, so I'll bake it in the TO. I have some snow crab knuckles in the freezer I'll quick boil, and we'll enjoy dunking those in butter. Some broccoli, and a salad, and warmed up French baguette from a fresh loaf will finish off dinner...and us.

I roasted some chicken breasts yesterday, so I'll shred one and make chicken and cheese quesadillas and serve them with the tomato-jalapeno salsa I made a couple of days ago. I also have some leftover Mexican rice and will make some zesty refried beans and pico de gallo to go along.

That's drop dead beautiful Joey!

GG, I'm so glad you mentioned chicken and cheese quesadillas!! I've been trying to think of something for dinner and that fits the bill for sure. I've been wanting to finish up the last of the rotisserie chicken.

I have a pot of smoked sausage jambalaya on the stove cooking. It's smelling really good!

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
