TGI Friday June 24th - What's Cooking?

Wow, I am up early! And already have dinner planned! We usually go casual Friday nights as it is the end of the week and like to relax.

Tonight it will be CW's Eggplant Poutine, nachos and a gingered fruit salsa recipe I came across, with raw veggies and the elusive strawberry sorbet for dessert.

What's on your menu for tonight?

I have no clue.
I did see a program this morning, hunt, kill and cook... something like that. They made a corn and black bean salsa and served it on grilled avacado halves. That looked tempting. I'm not sure if I could call that an actual dinner, but maybe something else will pop into my head to throw on the grill besides avacados.

Not sure the title of the show appeals to me, Pac, but the avocado sure does! Sounds like something that would go well with a steak or (in keeping with the show) a bison burger or two!

A change already! DH just got up and wants to me to try out the new gluten free pizza dough mix I bought awhile ago so I guess we are having pizza. Not sure of toppings but I have to get him some of his no soy/dairy/taste cheese like product () so will see about some nice fresh topping items! I make the sauce with some crushed tomatoes and will be able to add some fresh herbs from my garden!

Did you see the show? They were grilling bison!
Pretty intuitive if you didn't, LP.

We're STILL clearing out the fridge.(I tend to cook too much when DS is home and he is out of his eating all the time teenage phase) I have 3 chicken fried steaks, mashed taters and gravy left so those will get heated up along with some canned green beans.

Hmm. Not sure yet. Friday night is usually Pizza night, but seeing as I am the primary cook, I may shift that one to tomorrow night, when I am gone out to play at a wedding. I have some new found time on my hands so I may stoke up a fire in the bbq and do up some ribs.

No, wouldn't have watched it if it was on here so you'll have to go with the intuition! We had a Canadian show called "Wild Chef" awhile back but I am just not into game, hunting, any of that stuff. I am actually a frustrated vegetarian. I eat meat only because I have to - my body needs red meat protein. But I go meatless or poultry/fish as much as possible!

I'm making a thyme flavored chicken stock today. I'll have to figure out how to use it.

Dinner will be fried kielbasa slices (I cut mine lengthwise in thirds), Swiss cheese, dill relish, and a littleThousand Island dressing; pressed Cuban style on French bread.

In bacon grease like Alberto's breakfast vid?
I'm going to try that sometime. I like pressed Cubans and I'm sure a little bacon grease on the outside of the bread would be a nice touch.

No sense starting a separate thread, so can I ask here how to buy a ripe avacado? Should it be soft? Should it smell a certain way? First time avacado buyer, too. Just like cantaloupe.
