Terrific Tuesday dinner plans anyone? 8/15

yesterday HarborWitch wrote:We've got to take the last load from the garage to storage. Then I think it's home for a salad topped with sliced grilled steak and blue cheese dressing, some sourdough bread, and maybe some lovely melon.
Thanks very much for letting me know what my dinner idea will be for tonight.
I really didn't know but that's why I adore these threads. Gives me ideas that otherwise I may be stymied about

I have everything needed for a wonderful steak salad. Plus, I have tons from last night if hubby wants to add to his salad plate!

Enjoy your day,
Susie
Okay, never mind that idea. I'm watching Giada De and she's making chicken picada. so, so am I.....I'll do that while watching my DVD of 4 handsome men sing to me, they always inspire me to do whatever......I have all the ingredients for it too. Gosh, my house is full of food...........

I was going to make a whole roasted chicken with lots of herbs and spices but... Paul just invited me to go to lunch with him so... we'll have a big lunch and just have leftovers for dinner. Pasta from last night. It was wonderful.

I have something interesting going on. I made up a huge batch of my cousin's New Mexico Green Chili and will be taking it to a friend's house to meet a man from what used to be the Belgian Congo (I think it is two countries now and can't remember which one he is from). I'm practicing the few words of French I know. Another friend will bring fajitas. Do Franco/African people like Southwestern cuisine? We will find out!

I have no clue yet!! Everything's frozen & won't have time to thaw out in time for me to cook it.

crewsk, you can use the procedure mentioned in a post last week. Turn an aluminum pan upside down and lay the steak, chops, etc on it. It will thaw quite soon. I've thawed my pork chops and am marinating them now. I may cook them on the grill. I also have some asparagus, but don't know what else. I made a rather rustic pizza for lunch - all fresh ingredients. It was good, but not as good as one of the really rich ones (but better for us).

I'm taking the easy way out, so I bought a rotisserie chicken to bake later, and some taters and other veggie.

Last night turned out to be really crazy. I combined two recipes, sort of, and added to them both.

First course: Carmelized pearl onions with scallops and shrimp in cream with apple jelly and applewood smoked bacon bits.

Main: Bacon wrapped fillet, veggie. and sourdough french bread.
Splurged on a wonderful bottle of Del Bastardo (from trader joes).

Dessert: Nap on the couch until bedtime.

I came here for ideas and I'm glad I did. I missed the post last week that Licia mentioned.

I'm heading down to get chicken out of the freezer and try it out. Thanks!
