What's Cooking Tuesday April 19th?

Well, it is a rare occasion - DH will be home for dinner for a change and not racing between two jobs or eating sandwiches in his bus!

However, my sinuses and asthma have gotten the better of me these days and I have constant pain across my face, making it difficult to eat.

So, I am making a big pot of homemade soup (not sure, mushroom, carrot or squash) for me and burgers and fries for the guys....after all, we will be eating in front of the TV as our beloved Canucks try to ditch the Blackhawks and move one step closer to the elusive Stanley Cup!

What's on the table at your house?

Well, if I can find the pork chops I know are in the freezer somewhere, we're having pork chops. If I can't find them I guess I'll make a ranch chicken dish.

Tuesday is one of my days off. Rib roast on the gas bbq. Got some Mesquite wood chips to put in my smoker box.

That's two nights in a row we almost hit on the same dinner. I had a spur of the moment thought in the store just now, but didn't like the look of their chops. And too lazy to dig through the freezer, so I grabbed some burger instead. I'm thinking tacos tonight featuring... tadaaa... the first Vidalia onions of the season!

I found the pork chops so we're good to go. I found a recipe in my files from 8 years ago that uses an interesting mix of stuffing ingredients. Let's see how it goes with SO before I decide to keep it or trash it. I'm going to do some kind of pan-fried potatoes to go with it.

I am so envious ! My two favourite onions in the world are vidalia and Walla Walla from Washington State!

So, it will be French onion soup (with local onions - red and yellow) for all with a salad for DH, a crouton and Swiss cheese on Dad's soup, and mine I will probably have plain.

Not your every day hockey fare, but the masses have spoken!

My wife picked up some fresh plain udons from Costco the other day so we're having that tonight.

DH can't concentrate to cook, now that he has the new job. I'm not cutting anything with a knife until my cut finger gets better. So DH will slice scallions and cube some cheese. I'll make a French omelette. We'll probably have toast with that. Hmm, maybe potatoes.

I'm thinking that we'll have chicken wings with macaroni and cheese. Maybe some green beans on the side too.
