What's for Dinner, August 3

Well, two nights of cereal and ice cream are enough (mud, I'm glad to know we weren't alone!)! Even though it's still supposed to be around 110 with heat index, I'm ready for a bit more of a meal so I'm going to make chicken fajitas tonight. I figure it's fast cooking so it won't heat the house too much.

And we're going out later this morning to buy more ice cream....

Ever since you mentioned cold cereal, it has been niggling in the back of my mind!! But, as I thot yesterday, the T-bone I grilled last nite did take back burner to the wonderful goodies from the farmer's market. So, fajitas don't sound like a bad way to go with the l/o steak!!! I also have another 2 ears of corn and those little buttery potatoes.....I like your idea! ;)

No Idea, other than it will definitely be something along I-75 on the way down to Gatlinburg, TN.

Since I goofed around most of the week I got busy this morning and started a tortellini salad with pesto dressing extra pine nuts, diced garden tomatoes, will grill some thick pork chops, and corn, have some yukon golds going and will put butter and fresh chopped parsley and garlic, salt and pepper on them. Mave some homemade chocolate ice cream going as I type. That is about it unless I get off my fanny and make some rolls

We were going to go Greek tonight but... the day has turned out to be quite busy for both Paul and I. He won't be home until pretty late. So, instead I think I'll just Pick up some Hot and Sour soup and BBQ pork at the local Chinese place... or make BLTs.

I'm making home made pizza. Toppings are pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, cubanelle peppers, tomatoes, spinach, and plenty of mozzarella. I can finally use the oven tonight, it's not as hot as it was yesterday.

Bangbang,
don't know which Dina is making, but when I go to my favorite Mexican restaurant, I order chicken milanesa, but it can also be made with pork and beef. The meat is pounded thin, then breaded and fried, it's wonderful with a tomatillo green sauce and guacamole.
