What's for Dinner - Friday 30 August

So what is everyone doing for dinner tonight? Anyone starting off the Labor Day weekend with something special?

We are going to friends for a birthday cookout. Not sure what is on the menu, it is a surprise, so I'll report back later.

I''m baking the cake for the celebration- chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. Made the cake last night and will frost is this afternoon.

Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."

Tonight I'm making Chinese pepper steak over jasmine rice. Possibly with some mushrooms and/or onions added.

Hopefully leftovers from a picnic I'm having for lunch at the house site; guacamole, blue corn chips, hummus, sliced cucumbers and fresh peaches, and whatever the others bring.

Nothing fancy, but mighty good eats.....meatloaf, mashed taters and gravy, garden peas, maybe avocado pie for dessert.

I just started it off by grilling three hot dogs with toasted buns.
I'm not sure about tonight yet.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

We'll have baked Atlantic cod, steamed spinach, black-eyed peas, iced tea and finish with rice pudding. 'Nuff. We'll be full.

There are short ribs braising in the oven as we speak.

Have the last of the beef roast from earlier in the week simmering in the crockpot with BBQ sauce for sandwiches later - and leftovers to feed the freezer. Salad - this time with the Burgundy tomato from the farmers' market. Corn on the grill IF I can hit the roadside stand before they're all out. If I'm successful Himself will grill it after cutting grass. Gonna get a two-fer from the bug spray.

DH is out golfing with friends tonight, so it's just me. I'm thinking nachos and a salad.

I had another all afternoon meeting with really good snacks (again, snacks were the only redeeming factor, I OD'd on snacks)...not terribly hungry right now.

We may go back to the brand-new restaurant where we had the REALLY good porterhouse last week, and split a meal again.
