What's cookin', Monday, August 27th?

i have a lot of tomatoes to cook down into sauce for canning or freezing, depending on if i can stay awake.
also, i'm gonna try my first attempt at making kosher dill spears using english cukes from my garden.

then, i was psyched to see lobsters go on sale again this week, for $6.99/lb., so we'll have them steamed. or if i can find seaweed, possibly a lobster bake with hot italian sausage or linguica, little necks, baby redskin spuds, and corn on the cob. i can't wait.
at that price, i may pick up an extra monster or two to make lobster rolls later in the week. i sure hope my boy doesn't want to keep one for a pet. we have enough with 4 cats, 2 parrots, 6 hermit crabs, and a turtle. (the cats and birds are pretty safe, but hermit crab tails and turtles are delicious )

The jambalaya that I was supposed to make on Sunday. I also have some shrimp that I am going to sprinkle with cajun seasoning and then grill.

You folks are a bunch of sick puppies. It's only nearly 11:30 Sunday night...and you're thinking/talking about Monday's meal. Okay, I'll admit I do plan my menus several months in advance, but I don't have my weekly calendar next to my bed. Go to night-night, you two! You're going to make the rest of look like slackers.

lol, k.t.e., but it's LOBSTERS!!!

they're such tasty little monsters. i had one friday at a little seafood place, but it was very disappointing (dry and flavorless.i don't know how you make a steamed lobster dry) so i need to make them at home, the right way.

hmm, a question for everyone. is the water used to boil a lobster good for anything, like it could be used for fish stock? after skimming the scum off of course. or would that be scumming the skim. nope, the first one.

My mom used to plan out her dinner menus for two weeks in advance. I usually plan my menus for the week, but have it flexible so if anything changes I can switch dinners around. It if is a really hectic week I just wing it with what is in the pantry and freezer.

Bourbon or Ice cold Grey Goose! I have some beautiful Center-cut P-chops. Grill maybe? Gonna make risotto, and clean out the refrigerator.

Waiting for the curds and whey of my just-made buttermilk pot cheese to separate so I can strain the curds. Will make a cheese and herb tart out of it. We'll have a salad of mixed greens dressed in vinaigrette with it. Today's our meatless meal for the week. It's cooler, well only 94, so I'll reintroduce myself to my oven for the tart.

Still camping - I will be grilling burgers w/swiss cheese, sweet corn, sliced tomatoes, sweet onions, and chips. If wanted later, butter pecan ice cream.

I have a leftover chicken breast and thigh that need using up, so I think I'll make Thai noodles with veggies, chicken and peanut sauce.
