What's for dinner? Monday 10-5-15

I'm in the mood for pasta today, but not a marinara based pasta dish.

I have fresh broccoli that needs using up, a wedge of parm, and I found some vacuum sealed leftover rotisserie chicken in the freezer, so I think it'll be Broccoli Chicken Alfredo. I usually use half and half for the alfredo sauce, but I'm out so will have to use whole milk.

What's on your plate for this evening?

Grilled sirloin steak, spinach pasta with pesto (Trader Joe's), and a green salad.

Grilled pimento cheese sandwiches and pasta salad. The cheese recipe came from this months BA mag. I made up the salad dressing using mayo, Marzetti's coleslaw dressing, French's yellow mustard, cider vinegar, S&P.

DH is tennising tonight, so I'll probably finish up the other half of a chicken sammie, along with some coleslaw.

A quick trip to the deli for some rare roast beef, re-routing yesterday's onion soup and magic under the broiler to melt some jarlsberg swiss on top of the roast beef. Fish out some onions to top and the soup becomes au jus. Voila'= French dip sammies.
