What's for dinner July 23rd?

I can't decide and I'm taking votes....
Either my 1st batch of pesto for the season, or something I made up called pizza pasta.... shell pasta with a can of diced tomato, garlic, onion, fresh basil, mozz cheese, parm cheese, and pepperoni.
How about you and HELP ME!!


Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

I have a haircut appt at 6 so dinner will be late and quick. I'm thinking some grilled tuna and sautéed baby beets with their greens..... and a nice Cotes du Rhone...
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I found myself baking some beef, cheese and bean burritos for lunch. With a hurricane coming our way and possibly no electricity, we will probably be having sandwiches for dinner.

I vote pesto.
As for my dinner... dunno. Wife is out, so I can play.
Don't feel playful though, so probably something simple...

I am flush with fresh basil,too, so we are having a basil dish as well. Red pepper pesto pita pockets. Roasted red peppers, cooked, shredded chicken, mayonnaise, pesto sauce, cheese, baked and melted together, served in a pita pocket.

Go for a pesto dish!
Life is too short to eat processed, artificially-colored, chemically-preserved, genetically-modified food. Or maybe that IS why life's too short.

Picnic for our local "Music in the Park" Costco roasted chicken & salad and maybe barbecued baked beans. Not sure how to take the beans and serve them without making a mess.

Got a big roasting chicken from the store. I'm stuffing it with crudely cut potatoes, carrots and rosemary which is a perennial in my garden. The juice will drip down inside the seasoned chicken and make those vegetables SO GOOD.

Garden salad.

That's enough.
