What's for Dinner, Friday April 16th

Wow, I was surprised to see this not started yet.

I am not totally sure but I am hoping it will stay nice enough to grill some baby backs I got and some corn on the cob. If not I am not sure. I would prefer to do them on the grill but may have to settle for the oven.

What are you planning for tonight's dinner?

I have some big thick pork chops in a brine (cranberry juice, brown sugar, kosher salt). I'll use my grill pan. GB mentioned cranberry juice as the liquid in rice in another thread.
Since I opened a bottle for the brine, I'll use it in the rice too, and throw in some dried cranberries. A big green salad will round it all out.

The market had some large really nice-looking U.S. farm-raised catfish filets, so I picked up two. Plan to dip them lightly in Italian salad dressing followed by a hefty coating of coarse-ground lemon-pepper seasoning. Will bake them & accompany with some butter-&-parmesan tossed fresh tri-color cheese tortellini (also on sale at the market), & a nice mixed green salad. Shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to have the whole shebang on the table, which, with the kind of work hours my poor husband has had to keep lately, is my kind of meal - lol!

I made a jerk marinade today and did some jerk chicken thighs and some grilled jerk artichokes (absolutely fantastic) with some oven potatoes. I'm a meat lover and it surprised me that I had just a bit of the chicken because the artichoke was so good

I made bacon and eggs for dinner. Scrambled for Kathleen and fried for me.

Well, majority rules and both DH and Dad decided it was time for a waffle night. So, out came the waffle iron and I made gluten free flax for DH and whole wheat for us. Instead of syrup I surprised them with fresh strawberries and whipped cream (actually Cool Whip Lite but that is the topping of choice to suit everyone's diets). I also cooked some sausages on the side. I have to say it was a good choice!
