What's for Dinner Friday January 9th

On days when DH works afternoons we have changed our big meal to lunch. I am making the super crunchy fried chicken which was posted a few days ago. I still have broccoli salad and may even do some oven fries to go with it.

What are you all having?

Making a cheese pizza with fresh mozerlla and the last of the fresh basil from the summer. I managed to keep 2 plants alive in the greenhouse.

LOL... do you think it's tooooo complicated for someone like me to serve to the BEST Persian cook that I know? I'm just a "little" nervous? Think I should go to Micky D's and get some big Macs as a back up?
