What's Cooking For TGI Friday, August 26?

I know it is 10 minutes to Friday where I am, but I am really excited about dinner tonight. It is DH's birthday and I am doing a 4 course meal
1) Appetizer is a gazpacho soup with basil pesto garnish
2) Salmon marinated in maple syrup on a fresh mango salsa
3) Chicken souvlaki with rice pilaf and mixed steamed veggies
4) Homemade strawberry balsamic sorbet with gluten free cake.

I hope he will enjoy it as much as I will making it!

I saw that Jinks :)
Your dinner does sounds great! It always does :) I'm still thinking what else I can make, maybe I'll find some nice veggies. They've stopped a lot of produce from coming into Botswana from SA so I can't find tomatoes anywhere!!!! I can't cook without tomato

DINNER Friday Aug. 26th

Tonight offers a little window of good weather before our house guest Irene arrives. I'm grilling country style ribs marinated in a chipotle marinade along with some stuff I haven't decided yet for sides.

I looked in the Today's Menu section and didn't see any others. I guess I'd better look more closely next time.

Still no fresh veggies at the supermarket :(
I've made Nataniel's brown rice and lentil diet recipe as a side for the rib eye lol!
It's kinda like having a double cheese burger with a diet coke :p
