Tuesday the 10th. What's for Dinner?

With the eventual completion of taco dinner last night, we are back on track for the weekly menu.

Scheduled for tonight is Pad Thai with shrimp.

What's scheduled for your dinner?

Even though I said last night that I was done with the multi meals from that Costco rotisserie chicken, there are abundant leftovers from last nights casserole, and I don't think it would freeze well, so that's what's for dinner again tonight. Let's see, that makes 5 meals for two from one $6.00 chicken. Talk about bang for your buck!

We most definitely won't be eating any more chicken for a while. lol

Kay, I sure wish we had a closer Costco - I've been craving one of their rotisserie chickens, but it's a 3 hour round trip drive. Then we have to hit Trader Joe's while we're there, so it takes the entire day.

This afternoon's dinner will be a grilled burger on a toasted onion bun, and homemade potato salad.

Not sure here. If the kid gets up in time for supper, we may order pizza. If not, I may just warm up the left overs and make a salad.

A quick chicken bake. Yes, cream of mushie soup is used, along with white wine, Swiss cheese, crushed herb stuffing mix, S&P. Served over egg noodles with a side of asparagus.

We're feeding a good friend who has been batching it for a couple of months while his wife out out of state taking care of her mother.

He enjoys good eats so we'll have herb-crusted pork roast (garlic salt and herbes de provence), mashed sweet potatoes with cinnamon and honey, fresh asparagus with lemon-butter sauce, iced tea and dessert...don't know. He's bringing it.

Our biggest goal is to get him to slow down and relax a bit. He's been going full bore since his wife left and he doesn't understand the meaning of the word, "relax," so maybe we can get him to take 5. Worst comes to worst, we'll let the air out of all his tires.

I'm so tired--today a film crew was in (TFO). Who knew shopping and faking cooking could be so exhausting. I have asparagus to steam, goat cheese, but I just don't feel like moving off the couch. And, I'm not hungry.

We had Mock Armadillo (Danish meatloaf) with the potato wedges. Stirling cooked supper. My only contribution was peeling the potatoes. By the time Stirling had everything in the oven, he had run out of spoons, so that was it. We didn't even have rødkål with it. It was yummers.

What's scheduled for your dinner?
In the category of "Best laid plans"

Doing mise en plas for tonight's pad thai and I couldn't find the tamarind paste. Looked throughout the fridge and checked the pantry for a new jar. No dice. So we went out for pizza.

Driving to the restaurant, I remembered I had some tamarind concentrate (the seedless type-much easier to use) in the freezer that I had forgotten about. I'm really angry that I forgot about that.

At least the pizza was good.
