Whatcha eatin', Saturday, July 19th, 2008?

since the aussies and kiwis are probably already into it, i'm starting the saturday "what's fer" thread. can't let them get too far ahead, you know.

so, what's fer dinner today?

i have to work until 4pm, so i'll probably grill some animal part when i get home. there's chicken breasts, tenders, and legs. and there's some pork chops in the fridge as well.
i'm hoping to be able to pick the first corn from my garden, and i saw a bunch of snap peas that were getting big, and fat, and crunchy.

i also bought some boneless beef short ribs, of which i was thinking of making them braised in red wine, and cooked with carrots, turnips, thyme, and parsley from the garden. i'll put it in the slow cooker, for dinner sunday or monday.

looks like a feast is in store for your family.As for me,i still havent decided.its one of those lazy unhappening days for me,when u r bored to death and u dont wanna do anything at all,just sit back and watch tv or lie down in bed and read something.But thats just a dream for me with 2 small kids.lol.Well maybe i will eventually muster up courage to finally go into the kitchen,and cook some chicken and rice pilaff,with some tomato,onion and cucumber salad,and maybe some mashed turnips to eat with flat bread.

Don't let love interfere with your appetite. It never does with mine.

Thank you Tom, that's very thoughtful of you, at the time of this post it's 5pm here and 7pm over there and I have absolutely no idea what we will be having for dinner. The two boys have gone fishing [again] and there's another Mackerel comp. on [again] up in the Whitsundays this time and the weather is absolutely perfect.
Rump steak or Bacon and Eggs or an Omelet or even Vegemite on toast are on the short list, nothing flash for us pair.
The Omelets failed in to scrambled eggs
We are happy little Vegemites, happy as can be

Grilled corn on the cob and country style ribs. And something else to round it out.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

waiting waiting waiting..........................oh phooey, I can't wait!

I'd love a salad Nicoise

It is very hot and humid here so I am planning on a cold salad platter with all the fixings. Salmon, eggs, green beans, beets, chick peas, cukes, tomato, peas, potato and of course some green lettuce. Crusty bread and strawberry sundaes for dessert.
