The official DC dinner thread for Sat, Aug 13th

I've got some shrimp leftover from last night, so tonight I'll wrap them in bacon, grill, then toss them with some hot sauce. Maybe I'll pick up some veggies to marinate and grill, too.
I know it's early for some of us, but I need to use those shrimp up so my dinner is planned already

And you...

I took a cab to Rouses and walked home. I got an 8 oz container of lump crab meat ($7) and some Swai fillets ($3 #).

I'm thinking crab stuffed Swai, sauted in butter/garlic.

I put half of the crab in the shrimp salad. I won't do that again. The crab just disappeared. It's a great salad, but you wouldn't guess there was crab in it.

Shouldn't you do that the other way around? Walk to store empty-handed, take taxi with grocery bags.

I have this leftover turkey leg and thigh in the freezer, and seeing I have leftover KFC mashed potatoes and gravy, I'll add some type of vegetable and either a 2009 Fetzler California Riesling, or a 2009 Viña Tarapacá Gran Tarapacá Viognier from Chile

I made a slow cooked chicken and veggie casserole. Cooked it for 5 hours, we could almost eat the bones it was so tender!

"Something" chicken. No idea yet, but I have a slew of chicken legs that need to be used. For sure we're having sauteed grape tomatoes with fresh basil and garlic as a side, probably more okra, iced tea and some of the cherry-peach pie I made a few days ago.

I portioned one large chicken into 8. Seasoned and browned the pieces. Then sauteed 2 onions and 3 stalks of chopped celery in the pot I browned the chicken in. Added the chicken back to the pot. Added 3 chopped beef steak tomatoes and covered with chicken broth. Added paprika, thyme and a hint of chili. Cooked for 2 hours at 300F then added julienned carrots, zucchini, chopped potatoes, and a few fresh peas. Made a cornflour slurry to thicken the casserole and then cooked for 3 more hours.
