The Official Friday the 13th (of May) Dinner thread

Well? Where's my inspiration?

All I know is that I am grilling some bacon wrapped asparagus.
Looking for ideas from others...

I have a pork roast going in the oven. Not sure what I'll serve with it yet. I think I have enough lettuce for some salads but other than that I'll have to look through the pantry.

ooh, salad... good call.
I've got some romaine hearts I can halve and throw on the grill, too. Along with the usual salad stuff in the crisper drawer. I always seem to forget about salads, and I love salads.

MMMM, asparagus!


Buffalo wings and cole slaw for us. A cold Sam Adams or two for me.

$1.99/lb, too!

I'm >this< close to having wings myself, but I don't see wings and asparagus as a good "pairing"

Geeze, I didn't realize it was Fri the 13th. I had three near miss accidents on the way home from Costco!! Phew!!

I got a rotisserie chicken there, so I'll be doing something with that. I'm not inspired either.

Not sure at this point. Maybe just a nap.

I'm glad they were misses.

Who needs inspiration with a Costco rotisserie chicken? They are good as is. I like to serve with a simple salad and baguette with balsamic vinegar and olive oil for dipping the chunks/slices of bread (you know, that drops of balsamic swirled on the EVOO thing they do in nice Italian restaurants).

We've enjoyed Costco's rotisserie chickens for years. However, in the past year or so we have found them undercooked on a couple of occasions.

I assume this is a local issue.
