What's for Dinner Thursday May 19/11?

Not quite sure what to do here. I'd planned to grill some pork tenderloin but we have a thunderstorm forecast. I'll see whats up later in the day and possibly alter plans to fit the weather.

We're still in New Orleans mode, so I'm going to make red beans and rice and serve jalapeno cornbread muffins with it. Iced tea, with black forest cake for dessert. That oughta do it!

LOL! That's what I get for going to pour coffee in the middle of posting! Dang! Going to beat you at this one day MsM!

My plans have abruptly changed. We are now hosting dinner for Ken's Mom, Sister and BIL. Dinner for 7 means no tenderloin. I think I'll go dig a chicken out of the freezer and do a roast chicken with all the fixings. I have a 12 lber I've been saving for a "company dinner". I'm also going to go out and get a platter of sushi as an appetizer. Ken's sister and BIL LOVE it and we had planned to go out together but we don't want to exclude my MIL or our kids who hate it. So...combo dinner tonight.

I'll post sides etc later when I have it all settled.

Alix, one of our favorite ways to roast or rotisserize a chicken is to shove lots of fresh rosemary under the skin, along with some slivered garlic and unsalted butter. Slather with olive oil and some salt and the chicken is heaven on a plate, to say nothing of the divine aroma that it produces.

I didn't cook yesterday so I'll make something good today. My husband's favorite shredded flank steak tacos.

I have a whole flank steak (cut into three pieces across the grain) in my slow cooker with some tomato sauce, some whole garlic cloves, some water and s&p. When it's done, I'll shred the meat and have it in corn tortillas with shredded cabbage, sliced tomato and a cumin mayonnaise.

I've got some tomato products to use up and will do so in a puttanesca. Served over gnocchi with some garlic bread and a salad.
