What’s on the menu Saturday 7/7/2018?

No one started a dinner thread yet?

Well I will be putting a corned beef in my Instant pot shortly.

So Corned beef, red potatoes, cooked cabbage (for hub) and cabbage salad (for DD and I).

With all the hot temps I don't think anyone's cooking tonight.

I'm just having hot dogs for dinner.

A cold front came through yesterday to break the heat wave. It's 74 F, clear blue sky, and low humidity - about perfect!

Chicken breasts on the grill, leftover black bean and corn salad.

It's World Chocolate Day, but we're going to pass.

If you lived in Texas, you wouldn't cook for three months out of every year.

Actually, it is only 94F here right now. I guess a cold front came through.

My cajun dog sitter made a big cast-iron pot-o-beans today. When I picked up psycho-poodle, she gave me some, with rice. That will most likely be my dinner. She used some jalepeños from my garden to cook the beans, so I guess I can say I contributed to the meal.

Oh, and she made some beer bread, too. Rice and beans and beer bread.

It’s only 76F at moment with 40% humidity. It feels great.

Corned beef is cooking.

98 degrees right now, so lots better than the 110 at this time yesterday. No mood to cook though so we'll be having tuna/egg salad on Ciabatta rolls and chilled melon with Rainier cherries on the side.

Sushi and tuna poke. The 6 pieces on the top are vege rolls (avocado, sauteed spinach, grated carrot, cucumber and green onion), the 6 pieces on the side are shrimp tempura (plus avo, carrot, cucumber and green onion). The picture of the ready to be rolled roll is Craig's spicy tuna roll with kimchi base, cucumber and green onion. The 2 sauces in the corner are a spicy mayo with sriracha and sesame oil, and wasabi of course.

Sushi looks real good, but I'm not a fan. Not big on rice here. Chicken croquettes for dinner tonight followed by dumpling night. Kids bringing various types. Grandkids love dumplings. I've gotta learn to make my own.

Yeah, tuna/egg salad on ciabatta is best served open face, unless you want to watch your tuna/egg salad squeeze out of the ciabatta sandwich like toothpaste from a tube.

I fell asleep prior to dinner. SO was visiting a neighbor. So I ordered pizza for dinner.

Good looking and sounding dinners!

I was up before sunrise this morning, so I turned on the oven and roasted a chicken, pan fried a couple of gr. beef patties, and prepped veggies for salads for the next couple of days. A watermelon is cut up and ready for nibbling. Everything was done and portioned up for the fridge, and the kitchen cleaned by 8AM.

At 9PM, its still 100 and tomorrow is supposed to be 111F. Prepping makes my summer foodie life a lot easier.

I piled a ton of newly bought packaged bean sprouts onto sandwich bread with cheddar cheese slices and avocado slices. Fritos on the side. It done me good. I plan to make more bean sprout laden sandwiches in the near future, before the sprouts get slimy. I'm gonna buy a can of Chicken Chow Mein too. Pour sprouts into it.

Caslon, if we don't see you coming around we'll just figure the sprouts did you in.

You're right about the photos, Kayelle. I could eat all over again with the temptations I scrolled past. Ack, "Temptations". Now I reminded my self of that night...


Glorious day here: Himself has our grill all fixed up like new - or as new as an 18-year old grill can get. Fired that baby up and grilled chicken breasts slathered with Very Very Teriyaki sauce. I served them up with wine-braised baby bok choy and barely adequate stove-top pan cooked Jasmine rice. Actually, we thought it was perfectly fine rice. Whatevs.

I got some gorgeous tomatoes from a friend yesterday, so I made a tomato-centric dinner. Sautéed cherry toms with shallots, garlic, white wine, lemon juice, fresh parsley, capers, olives and toasted pine nuts, mixed with spaghetti, topped with pan-seared tuna and a caprese salad on the side.
