What's everyone having for dinner this afternoon?

Well it's 54 degree's outside here today so it's rather chilly. But we're going to brave the cold temperatures outside so that we can cook Hamburgers and Hotdogs on the grill.

I have a few slices of a tasty pork roast leftover and I'm going to cook some barley with aromatics and hard cider for part of the liquid for the barley and cube the pork to add to the barley. Take that mixture and stuff bell peppers with it and bake them until heated through. Perhaps a sprinkling of parmesan at the table.
I have a good sized granny smith apple, maybe I'll cube it up and roast it while the peppers are in the oven till it breaks down nice and soft like a chunky applesauce to serve alongside the pepper.

I'll be making a variation of the Italian String Bean Stew recipe Andy posted a while back. I'll be using bison instead of beef, and I'm going to heavily season it with Hungarian paprika before I brown it, like a gulyas. I'll also add mushrooms and some fresh oregano towards the end, when I add the green beans. I'll probably serve over egg noodles.

We're having an odds and ends night to clean out the fridge.

I'm browning some hamburger and making sloppy joe ring. I crescent rolls laid out in a circle and fill with sloppy joe and bake. DH doesn't like it on buns and this is a way he'll eat it since he can use a fork! I'll do up some alfedo shells and salads.

I got a nice pork shoulder roast that's braising in the oven. I'll stick a potato in to bake later on (the roast is 8#).

that's a neat idea. i'm going to have to steal that one soon. thanks jabbur.

we have a scout thing tonight called "trunk or treat". it's where the pack parents decorate the trunk of their cars, then park their cars around a large field and have the boys go trick or treating to each one.

i think it's kinda stupid. do we really need a pre-halloween, with more candy?

anyway, i'm picking up dinner from a converted pizza place that does takeout steaks and chops and grilled stuff.

dw's getting grilled chicken over greek salad, the boy's getting a burger, and i'm getting the "protein salad", which is a couple of thin slices of various grilled meats over a salad with olives and swiss cheese.

The eggs aren't the only things FRESH around here!
