I found a 2-1/2 lb. pack of 4-6 oz. sirloin steaks marked down to $5.00, so one of those with a simple iceberg lettuce salad and glazed carrots should be fine for today.

Having folks over, need to streeetch the food we have as I don't have time to shop. Going to try a new lemony chicken recipe tonight. It looks easy and lovely. I was going to do either the bourbon cream chicken or a tarragon cream chicken but I have a lactose intolerant coming for dinner so thats out.

Can't decide whether to serve this with a pasta so folks can use the lemony goodness as a sauce or to serve a lovely rice blend that stands on its own. Also going to serve a killer coleslaw (nice crunchy bits and light herbal dressing to complement the chicken), and the cooked veggie is yet to be decided. I will likely decide after I choose the carb. I hate having a monochromatic plate.

I need to think of a fast dessert to bake. I get home around 3 and will need it done by 4-430 so I can put the rest of the dinner in the oven. Help anyone?

Alix, how about brownies??? my favorite recipe is from the King Arthur cookbook, but I think it is a common type recipe.

I just cut some partially frozen deer tenderloin and am marinateing it in a bulgogi recipe....will serve it with brown rice.

Good thought beth! I can do up a batch of brownies and those that want a blob of ice cream on top can have it! YAY! Thanks for the inspiration.

a veggie if i'm ambitious. likely a salad & either walnut or macadamia vinagrette.

GF, I keep intending to do that to cauliflower but forget. Tell me just how you do it - like mashed potatoes, any tips?

I will be breaking up the cauliflower, spraying some olive oil on it, smearing it with some smashed garlic, sprinkling a bit of garlic powder, seasoning salt and nutmeg on it, then wrapping it in foil and sticking it in the oven for 30 minutes at 375... or until nice and soft. I usually grill it till its a bit charred, then oven it, but am out of gas....
THen I will be smooshing it up, adding a bit of milk, 1/4 cup of mashed tater flakes,
a pat of butter and some salt and pepper.
