I've got friends coming over for a combined meal, and the theme is Spanish tapas. I'm fixing 1.) Fried Garlic bread and Charizo Sausage, 2.) Crostini brushed with olive oil and sweetened truffel infused basalmic vinegar, and 3.) chopped dates and almonds on a whole wheat cracker spread with cream cheese. My friends are bringing two types of empanadas. We get together nearly every Thursday evening for a theme dinner, and we'll occasionally invite other friends as well. Some of our themes, beyond the usual "seafood" kind of thing, has been "Great Britain Pre-600 a.d.", "Pre-Columbus America", "Stadium and Ball Park Food", "Chinese Peasant", and "Emperor Nero's Table." It often makes us do some research into that era or theme, and puts some human interest into where we were then and where we are now in a culinary sense.

I'm making my "Baked Cheese-Stuffed Poblano Peppers" - sort of like a healthier version of "Chilis Rellenos". Will serve with rice or a rice/bean mix & a green salad.

Probably leftovers. I made spaghetti with a sausage tomato sauce the other night, husband and son left for a two-week backpacking trip. Carb-loaded the night before they left. I'll have the sauce on spaghetti squash.

Either the leftover ribs from last night (they were so good!) or salisbury steak covered in onion gravy. Sides will be whatever I can find at the farmers' market today.
