TGIF .. Friday 9/14 .. What's for dinner?

Good morning,

Our nice weather continues. Burgers with sliced tomatoes and potato salad on our dinner table tonight. Ice cream for dessert. Guess, I'm not ready to let go of the summer menu yet.

We're having something similar. I got some bratwurst patties and will grill those up served on hamburger buns. Macaroni salad. Not sure if we'll add anything else or not. Just DH and I tonight.

I bought some steaks a while ago from a farmer's stand at the market and they were as tough as nails. I dug out two remaining rib steaks and am simmering them in the stock pot with the usual suspects. I think I am going to make a stew out of them. I will have a bit for dinner and freeze the rest in portions for my work lunches....

All this talk about crock pots has me thinking about a crock pot meal. I need to go investigate the freezer but I've got potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, green pepper and more tomatoes than you can shake a stick at. I'll find something in the freezer and go from there.

Trying to use up an uncooked chicken breast and some veggies, so I'm thinking we'll have a stir fry.

Alaskan King Salmon with fresh lemon slice, baked sweet potato, asparagus and a small dollup of a lo-fat dipping sauce (blenderized on "chop" setting with kale, spinach, lo-fat greek yogurt, red bell pepper, garlic, onion, mushrooms, carrots, and water chestnuts). I make my own sauce but Trader Joe's sells it too (they also add mayo, agave nectar, dill, celery and salt).

I'm defrosting a pork tenderloin. No clue yet what I'll do with it. Maybe some grill seasoning and toss it on the gas grill.

Grilled steak and potatoes, and some mushroom gratin with whatever white cheese I have... probably pepper jack. Maybe a little salad, too.
