Thursday Aug. 7th....what's for dinner?

Grilled shrimp, red bell pepper, and onion 'kabobs. Just took the shrimp out to clean and marinate in a little olive oil and garlic. Grilled garlic bread on the side.

What's on everyone's menu today?

Tonight's dinner is going to be simple. Burgers on the grill with bacon, cheese and tomato.

A spag carbonara (but cheating).

Bought some fresh egg spaghetti (reduced) and a carton of fresh carbonara sauce, reduced (I know...I never normally do this but was tempted). To the sauce I added slow grilled/dried small plum tomatoes, some dry cured bacon grilled and cut into strips and some chopped spring onion. Oh and a raw organic egg, folded in once the sauce was done - off the heat. Very acceptable.

I have a meeting tonight so I'm doing an easy meal. I'm going to sauté some onion, garlic, and bell peppers, then add a jar of Alfredo sauce. Then I'll boil and add a package of shrimp and crab ravioli I picked up at BJ's the other day. Garlic bread on the side.

yep, very busy day here too.
I did my quarterly Costco run, so...
it's Costco rotisserie Chicken, leftover grilled mixed veggies, a salad and maybe some leftover steamed white rice and of course a glass (or three) of white wine to wash it all done.

The rain didn't move out by early afternoon as predicted, and I couldn't decide if it would be clear or not by dinnertime. Switched tonight's plan with tomorrow's and made bratwurst and sauerkraut with a side of mashed potatoes. Tomorrow should be better weather.
