What's Cooking? 8/8/12

The heat is ON - 107 degrees predicted today (& much of the same the rest of the week).

Making Salmon Pasta Nicoise salad - smoked wild alaskan salmon, black olives, rotini, cut Italian green beans, red onion, halved cherry tomatoes, avocado & honey dijon vinaigrette dressing.

What's cooking at your place?

Cerise, good for you for preparing anything in 107degrees. If it was me, we'd be having cereal for dinner- lol!

I'm making pineapple chicken stir fry over white rice. It's chicken breast, cubed and marinated in pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger, stir fried with red peppers, pineapple chunks and peanuts.

Leftovers. I've got too many dishes going on so that the fridge is as packed as the freezer. Time for a clear out/rearrangement.

Sheesh, you guys. Mon Dieu. Back to Elba.

Harry, your chicken looks wonderful!

Made corn soup with leftover ears (of corn) and am now debating whether to use PF's Wasabi Ginger dressing with either fresh green beans or shredded cukes.
