Tuesday the 17th - What's For Dinner?

I liked the Chipotle pork recipe Sir_Loin_of_Beef posted the other day so I took it as the starting point for dinner.

I made up the marinade from that recipe and I'm marinating a 2-pound piece of pork butt. Later I'll hickory smoke it on my Weber kettle rather than braising it as the original recipe called for.

Suffed shells with marinara sauce and a salad.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

I hadn't even thought of it yet (didn't take anything out to thaw). Probably the last of the KFC chicken along with zucchini, and potatoes.

I picked up some ribeyes, sweet corn (on the cob sale priced $0.19 each), troll buggers (brussel sprouts). That should fill folks up tonight.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Leftover chili mac & cheese. I'd freeze it and make something else, but the freezer is full.

We're going out for "date night". We're going to one of our favourite, local (walking distance) restaurants, Casa Grecque. Looks like they are having a shrimp festival and a special on scampi, so I will probably have shrimp or scampi. It's bring your own wine. Yay, I get to drink more than one glass, 'cause we're walking.

We're headed to a corporate open house, where they'll be serving appetizers and stuff TBD.

A mix of 36 little neck and cherry stone clams baked with a topping made from a mixture of breadcrumbs, parmigiano, olive oil, garlic, parsley, and a dab of butter.

Pork marinated in sesame/ginger sauce and maybe done on skewers. I'll decide how to cook them in a bit. I'll also be doing a big salad and some rice (white) tonight.
