I have half a London broil that needs cooking, so I will sear it on the grill pan and serve with chimichurri sauce. We also have already-cooked mussels in the freezer, left over from when DH took his teachers on their retreat and made low-country boil. I'm going to make mussels in white wine-garlic-butter-parsley sauce garnished with chopped tomatoes, with toasted baguette slices for sopping. Green salad on the side.

In thinking grilled burgers (sans the bun) served with onion jam. Macaroni salad and maybe some fresh green beans from the garden, if the deer have left us any :/. On my way out to check for beans now, wish me luck :)

If you don't like the food, have more wine!

Went with a sauce comprised of garlic, shallots, black peppercorns, Szechuan pepper, crushed allspice, Medera wine, beef stock, and 18% cream,

I'm not cooking tonight. Ken is making dinner. We have some of our own potatoes, some swiss chard, BBQed chicken breast and tomato avocado salad. Yum.

Well that wasn't tough at all. I don't see what all the beef is about cooking prime rib. You can pretty much wing it as long as you have a thermometer. burp

Well my strike worked pretty good - seems like management got hungry. Ended up going to Ruby Tueday's - one of the few chain restaurants we like. Printed off a discount coupon - $10 off two dinners. Our trash hauler participates in a recycling program called "Recycle Rewards". You get points for recycling and can redeem the points for discounts and stuff like a one-year subscription to over 40 magazines. So, in a manner of speaking, we ate our garbage tonight! We like to go there for their salad bar - it includes fresh-made, inhouse pumpernickel croutons. OH yum!
