Tuesday's Table July 10, 2012

I have 5 lbs of hamburger in the fridge. I'll be making meatloaf. One to cook tonight and one to freeze for later. Mashed potatoes and green beans and salad. It's rainy here today and finally cooling down!

All I know is it will have ground beef in it, as that is what is defrosting. For some inexplicable reason I am suddenly in the mood for meatloaf!

With DH working 3 - 11pm shifts, it means we eat the main meal at 1, which in the hot weather (not complaining) makes me want to do as little cooking as possible.

I made a huge broccoli salad yesterday (with bacon, raisins, grapes, almonds, green onion) so I think I will just make a potato salad to go with it and grill some brats.

Still having problems with the neighborhood children, I see. (Yes, people, I am joking!)

Avocado dogs - Grilled Hebrew National hot dogs smeared w/ mustard, topped with diced onion, diced avocado w/ a squeeze of lime juice on toasted buns. Cold macaroni salad on the side. Peaches were 59 cents a pound, so I'd like to utilize them in a peach crostata.

Tonight we are having breakfast-for-dinner (or "brinner", as we sometimes call it). Scrambled eggs with fresh dill, roasted potatoes, bacon, and toast.

Is the recipe posted Kylie? I'd love to try this.

Our dinner tonight is going to be made by someone else. Bugs is going to make a hearty killer coleslaw, and we're going to do some rice for my tummy. As far as anything else goes...its all up in the air. Ken says he'll BBQ whatever I take out, but I have to work up the energy to go look for it. Its still Africa hot here. Humidex rating made it over 40C yesterday. Just as hot today but we at least have a breeze and the hope of a thunderstorm later.
