Sunday dinner Sonny, what is it? (Mar 18/12)

I am thinking I'll leave burgers for the family tonight. I'm not sure what I'll get at work so I'll have an extra out for when I get home.

I will be making Snapper Romano with a Ready-Pac Bistro Italiano salad and a side of brown rice. I guess I'll have to go pluck another lemon off my neighbor's tree

I'm defrosting and marinating a shoulder steak for London Broil tonight. I think I'll do some roasted red baby potatoes and sauté some string beans go along with it.

Dinner party tonight. My wife has 8 co-workers coming over, including her boss and two big wigs from their office in India who have never been to the states before. We are having:
  • Chile Marinated Grilled Chicken
  • Southwest Black Beans
  • Oven Baked Saffron Rice
  • Cucumbers in Mint Yogurt Dressing
  • Mediterranean Lentil Salad
  • Homemade Sourdough Bread
  • Three kinds of homemade Sorbet: Blood Orange, Lemon Mint, and Lime Basil
  • Assorted Cheeses and Fruits
  • Homemade Gewurztraminer and Tempranillo wines

Since the guys from India aren't familiar with American flavors, I thought I would try to make some dishes that include ingredients you might find in Indian cuisine, but in a different context. One of the fellows apparently remarked to someone else that he thought American food was bland. I'm working to erase that notion.

I've been cooking since yesterday morning.

Tonight's meal is our St. Patrick's Day feast. Corned beef and cabbage with stewed tomatoes, garlic mashed potatoes on the side, Killian's Irish Red to drink and green-tinted custard filled cream puffs with chocolate whipped cream topping. I'm pretty sure we'll be seriously full.

I'll have a slice of that pie if there's any leftover!

Now that we are back home and not living out of restaurants...

I have deer steaks thawed and primed for this evening.

Salad and corn to go with.

I'm going to Andy's, then swinging on over to Uncle Bob's for dessert!

I made a scallop linguini with garlic lemon butter sauce for DH to take to work. I will probably make a mushroom cream sauce over pasta when the time comes. I will have a salad with it - DH got peas.
