TGIF Dinner August 17/12

Kylie must be sleeping!

I don't quite know what to make for dinner. We're all home tonight (WEIRD) and we've been living off the BBQ on our holidays. I want to make something homey. I'm thinking I could maybe do coq au vin, or something else saucy. I found a recipe for whip lash chicken that looks tasty. Chicken and sauce of some kind is on the menu.

I'm leaning toward chicken tacos (either today or tomorrow). I am the mood to make corn tortillas, but might make whole wheat ones and add some tomato powder...decisions, decisions. Or, maybe I should dehydrate some kale and make kale tortillas...

Kale tortillas sounds interesting. That reminds me, I have a pile of tortillas that might need to be used up. Chicken tacos or fajitas sounds good.

If I go with tacos tomorrow, I'd have time to dehydrate the kale, grind it, and add to the dough...decisions, decisions. I'll let you know if I make the kale tortillas.

We're going to my sister's for dinner tonight. She's making chee kufta Chee kufta - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, a raw ground beef recipe with tomato, bulgar, onion, parsley and seasonings.

It's a once a year treat she makes for all of us. My BIL thanks me for coming because sis makes it for me.

Tonight we're having whole wheat wraps with steak, spinach, mushrooms, caramelized onions, and blue cheese. I love those!

Not sure what veggies will be yet. I have beets and kohlrabi in the fridge. It seems to me like those two could work together in a dish. Maybe some sort of slaw to go with the wraps.

Steve--I love kohlrabi slaw. I make grated raw beet salad dressed with EVOO, lemon juice (fresh), S&P.

We'll have something with hamburger. Not sure what I'll do with it yet. Have several casseroles that the family likes so maybe one of them.
