Thursday 8/10/2017 What's the plan Stan?

As of now the plan is Instant Pot crustless quiches with sliced tomato on the side. But meatloaf or chili are also options.

I think I'm going to do the smoked sausage and potatoes in my new Nesco roaster! I got it all seasoned and ready to go. The other option is to do a chicken dish in it but I think I'll wait to do that over the weekend.

TB is getting a marinated & grilled 2" loin chop with new potatoes and salad. I will be having a modified Cobb salad (only meat is turkey) with blue cheese dressing.

It is too hot for anything else here!

How funny, I was just about to start the ball rolling with today's dinner menu,
it's a good thing I looked first

We have ANOTHER house guest coming today, this time it's for
two nights AND he's a vegetarian, oy!
DH's buddy from Southern AZ should be here later this afternoon,
and I already have two pans of lasagna ready in the `fridge,
one big casserole dish with browned Sweet Italian Sausage added
and a smaller pan with just 3 different cheeses.
I think I'll put together a green salad and bake some
Trader Joe's Half Baked Idea Ciabatta as sides.

For dessert, I have another Apple Crosata ready to go,
ala mode naturally

Patty melts and, probably, a corn and tomato salad. Cantaloupe for dessert - picked up ice cream yesterday...

Congrats on your new Nesco Roaster Jabbar! Let us all know how you like it.

I haven't used my stove top smoker in ages, so I'm doing a couple of butterflied cornish game hens in it for dinner. Anyone have a guess how long they should cook, or any other hints?

This is just a guideline, but I'm looking at a Cooks Illustrated recipe for Thai Grilled Chicken using Cornish game hens (apparently Thai chickens are much smaller than ours). It says to grill them for 33 to 40 minutes till the breast reaches 160 on an instant read thermometer. Tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before carving. Hope this helps.

We've been eating a bit heavy for the last couple of days, so I'm making Alaskan pollock tonight. Not sure how I'll season it yet. I'll make salads and rice for sides. And maybe crostini with pesto from garden basil and tomatoes. If I get going now

Thanks GG, I thought about 40 min. in the smoker. I wish I had one of those probe thermometers, but...
