What's for dinner? 8-1-16

I found a cup of recently leftover refried beans in the freezer, so thought I would warm it, fry up a corn tortilla, and make a tostada for dinner. Finely chopped iceberg, tomato, onion, and cotija cheese will top it off.

What's on your plate?

DH brought home some of the sweetest locally grown corn we've ever tasted. We had a couple nuked ears for lunch, and will have the rest for dinner.

I've been craving Wisconsin beer cheese soup after perusing my extremely limited cheese drawer, so maybe that too.

I'm marinating some beef cubes in lemon, olive oil, garlic and oregano for grilling tonight. We're planning corn on the cob to go with it.

On a scavenger hunt in the freezer a few days ago, I found a quart deli container labeled "Beef Onion". I now realize it was shredded beef and onions in a very rich, red wine sauce. I'm adding some criminis and maybe some carrots, then serving over mashies, with a side salad.

I've had a craving lately for one of those "old school" wilted spinach salads with hot bacon dressing. So I'll probably have that.

We have two quarters of grilled Jamaican Jerk chicken from last night. It was the best I've ever done with this particular brand of seasoning and marinade recipe.

I think it was Rick who turned me on to this. It's a keeper for sure.

Wish I could dream up something different for low carb sides.

I'm going to grill up some chicken wings and drumsticks using an El Pollo Loco knock off marinade. They've been marinating about 15 hours now. I pierced the chicken so the marinade seeps in.
