What's For Dinner, Friday, Feb. 1?

February already!?!?!

I'm not sure what we'll have for dinner (probably some sort of pasta), but since DD is taking her first nap in almost 2 weeks (woo-hoo!), I'm going to take advantage of the time and make us a homemade apple pie for dessert tonight. Heck, maybe that will be dinner!

What are you eating tonight to kick off the weekend?

Oooh I wish I was having some of your homemade apple pie!

I think we're doing Spicy Pasta. I'll blacken up some shrimp, add sliced banana peppers & asparagus in a tomato cream with Penzey's extra hot red pepper flakes. BF's plate gets some habaneros, of course.

Mom and stepdad are in town. They like our local Greek place, so we'll head there for dinner tonight. I'm thinking of ordering a la carte: dinner salad with house dressing, Pegasus wings (chicken wings marinated in Greek seasonings and grilled), and Greek potatoes (cooked with garlic, lemon and oregano).

The boy just made a super tasty salsa for his salmon fillet, he is searing his fishy. I made him braised leeks, steamed broccoli and herbed brown rice.

Dark chocolate bar for us to share later!

Pegasus wings..... I've never had them, but they sure sound good.

Hey, Toots..... KFC is a Louisville institution, too I hear the restaurant isn't as good as the drive through

Shoot. Corn chowder. I knew I forgot something at the store just now I was thinking I had to get frozen corn for something....

I'm having a rolled pork roast. I was going to have it last night, but it takes four hours and I forgot about it til 6:00. I set a reminder on my phone for 3:30.

It's only an appetizer if you eat a few.
If you eat 16 or so, it's a meal!

Early this morning I browned up some ground beef, onions, and garlic. Added some salt and freshly ground black pepper and a little ground nutmeg, a beaten egg and a bunch of grated Parmesan.

I made a tomato sauce, spread it in the bottom of a casserole, then stuffed some jumbo pasta shells with the meat mixture, put the stuffed shells on top and spread more tomato sauce over. I'll bake everything, covered, until hot and cheese melts.

We'll have a salad on the side and some cake for dessert.
