What's for dinner? July 6, 2014

Hot this afternoon and I don't feel like cooking, so I went with a cool and early salad dinner. Marinated cukes, onions and radishes, and a potato/radish salad. I had a bunch of radishes to use up. It's only 4:45 here now so I might snack on more a little later.

What's on everyone's menu for this evening?

Shrek made fried potatoes with onions, mushrooms, sweet peppers and chorizo for dinner. Quite yummy, but I have to limit myself or I will eat it until I burst.

Dessert...half a personal watermelon, well chilled.

Nice looking dinner, Cheryl! I love meals that are heavy on the veggies.

Tonight was our third night in a row of grilling out. I pulled a ring of sausage out of the freezer this morning, so we had that along with some sweet potatoes and leftover beans from yesterday.

Our container garden is beginning to explode with bounty so we had a big plate of sliced cucumbers, along with a bowl of cherry, grape and yellow pear tomatoes.

Glenn gave me a Cuisinart Griddler for my birthday in May, so I inserted the ridged grill plates and put a bunch of zucchini slices in it, using the panini feature. Before I put them on I brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled some garlic salt and herbes de provence. They sure smelled good as they cooked.

We bought some nice big brats from a local butcher and Glenn cooked those on the grill outside. A bowl of Cajun potato salad and lots of iced tea filled us and cooled the spicy flavors from the potato salad and the brats.

Katie, I've had a griddler for a while now and really like it. We've used it for chicken, burgers, panini, pancakes...

Thanks, Andy and Steve.

Steve, I could go for some of that sausage and beans. My dinner was good, but didn't stay with me very long. Hungry again already. LOL

Katie...sounds good, but where is your dessert? I always look forward to hearing what you two had for dessert.

Oooops! Forget.

We had wings on the grill and tossed salad with a beer to wash it all down.

Yes, Andy, we really like ours, too. I just received the waffle plates with an Amazon gift card and some of our Amazon points. Can't wait to make waffles and...to cook bacon on the waffle grids per a suggestion by Alton Brown. Don't want any unitaskers, you know!

Sorry, Cheryl. Last night we finished the birthday key lime pie and, tonight, we were just too full to consider dessert, plus I hadn't made any.

However, you can look forward to Boston creme pie in our future.

Beautiful plates Cheryl and Steve.
