Here's my plan for dinner tonight...
Mr & Mrs Landlord each have their 12 hour shifts at work today,
I've already got planned a big pot of
Rapini and Pasta, either with Chicken Italian Sausage or diced Chicken,
loads of Garlic and grated Grana Padano Cheese,
and shared.

What are your dinner plans?

Hoping to make something that won't leave leftovers because we have plans for tomorrow and I don't like to let things ripen too long in the refrigerator. Too much of a risk of become U.F.O.s - unidentified food objects.

It's pretty hot today so I'm going to go a little light and make a chicken Provencal with a side of sauteed or grilled zucchini. I'm going to look in the pantry for some radiatore pasta 'cause I have a hankerin' for it. I have a feeling I'm going to be disappointed but I won't know until I look.

Made a big pitcher of tea that will cool us down over ice and, for dessert, we'll come close to polishing off all the fudge we bought at the candy store on the way home from Lexington last week.

Since I firmly believe in better to hurt your self then others, I am now cooking sitting down

SO what I could do was Korean beef with rice and peas. It is ground beef with brown sugar, soy and spices. It is really yummy and I think every one enjoyed it,
For the love of Cheese!

Don't let yesterday take up too much of today. Will

Looks good, kgirl. That's so nice of you to make extra and share with Mr. and Mrs. LL - I'm sure they REALLY appreciate it.

This evening's dinner will be a medley of chopped fresh veggies that need to be used and thanks to inspiration from CG, some rinsed and drained garbanzos for some extra protein. Will mix everything together, drizzle with either a little homemade vinaigrette or some bottled TJ's, and serve on a bed of romaine.

At least that's the plan - it's not even 1:00 yet and I have Tyler this afternoon, so the menu is subject to change.

Shhh, Domestic Goddess, you don't have to yell.

K-Girl, your dinner looks yummy. If you weren't already sharing with your DLandlords I'd be showing up with a nice bottle of wine...in three or four days.

Himself will grill some hot dogs. I made potato salad late Tuesday night just for this purpose. A can of beans because they just seem right with hot dogs. Later, I'm going to try and duplicate a favorite ice cream that I can't find up here - Bear Claw.

I'm envious of all of you. I just bought a turkey wrap in the Atlanta airport and it was so bad that I threw it out after 3 bites.

Hopefully the hotel dining room will still be open when I check in at 8:30.

In our house, dog hair is a condiment!
OMG! I decided to blog!
