The 8/14/13 Non-Themed Dinner Thread

I'm going to grill some corn on the cob and some pork chops for dinner tonight. Maybe home fries on the side.
And you?

I see! The theme for today is no theme. Very clever.

I'm grilling burgers tonight.

Spaghetti with homemade sauce pulled from freezer. Romaine salad to use up the last of the fresh mozz. Size of the glass of wine is dependent on how the outcome of this afternoon's baseball game goes...

Well, I guess the theme is not grilling I'm going out with friends tonight. I will probably get a couple of 50-cent tacos. I' m having a late snacky lunch so won't be hungry for more.

Not sure just yet. Part of me wants breakfast for dinner and part of me wants salads for dinner. Guess I'll let DH decide which he wants when he gets home.

DH elected salads. Got the eggs cooling, the lettuce chopped, the cheese shredded, the tomatoes washed, the bacon crumbles ready, the croutons out, the blue cheese crumbles available. Only things left to do are dice the tomatoes and eggs and cook the chicken (precooked only needs heated).

I'm buying a rack of ribs or two soon (on sale for a week starting tomorrow), so my dinner in the near future is going to be ribs, too. I almost bought a rack at the butcher's today, but he didn't have a price next to them so I passed.

That said, I just had a plate of leftover rice with butter and sautéed mushrooms and a couple stuffed mushrooms. I hadn't eaten anything all day except for that brownie and I couldn't wait anymore, so I ate tomorrows lunch as an appetizer
I'm still going to grill the corn and pork chops and if I don't have any tonight they will be tomorrows lunch.

I got ambitious after work tonight and made chicken pot pie. OK, I didn't make the crust from scratch. It was frozen puff pastry, but it turned out pretty good.

Rockfish, potatoes au gratin, and corn. Home cooking for four (count them) FOUR days straight. I'm so bouncy for that! :)
