TGI Friday June 8th Menu Plans?

Since I am up at this incredibly early hour and since I finally have some decent dinner plans I decided to start the thread.

DH's brother is coming over for dinner and since he has been batching it for the last several months, he loves to come over for a home cooked meal. He is a pretty big eater (and weighs next to nothing ) so I planned a good hearty meal with extras for him to take home.

I am making a three meat lasagna, with a beef bolognese sauce, an Italian sausage ragu and sliced pepperoni. It will also have mushrooms, bechemel, ricotta and of course mozzarella.

I'll serve a salad of spring greens, grape tomatoes, cucumber and red onion with a white balsamic vinaigrette and whole wheat baguette garlic bread.

DH is handling dessert so it will probably be homemade ice cream of some sort and fruit.

What's on the menu at your house?

The lasagna and salad sound delicious!

We are having some leftover fried rice (nasi goreng). I plan to add more veggies to it. I am marinading some chicken in sate spices (mainly cumin and coriander seeds with garlic and soy sauce). I'll be grilling those in the oven. Steamed broccoli will round out the meal. We don't usually do desert, but I did buy a watermelon today.

Not sure yet. We brought home a huge amount of local barbecue, along with baked beans, hash brown casserole and slaw from supper at Glenn's daughter's house last night and....it's beautiful here for June.

We're thinking about taking the motorcycle out for a nice long ride. When we do that, we could end up anywhere for supper. We just let the wind take us where it blows.

Whatever the case, we'll have a good meal, whether it's leftover barbecue or something else on the road.

I'm still working on cleaning out the freezer.

Tonight's dinner will be lamb and okra stew.

I have no clue. It will probably include Swiss chard. I have to head back to the house in the City where I'm working on cleaning out the freezer. I have a venison steak that I might thaw and eat. I haven't had red meat this week....
