I'm thinking pasta with eggplant and tomatoes. I learned this dish recently from my wife's very distant cousin but wasn't happy with my first attempt. I'll bake some bread and make a salad. Maybe some bruschetta.

I'm grilling/smoking some chicken breasts and thighs for dinner tonight along with corn on the cob and pasta salad.

I've a similar menu to Andy's but not sure yet how the chicken will be cooked. I'm thinking baked since I can throw it in the oven and get some other stuff done while it's cooking. Maybe throw some BBQ sauce on it. Sweet corn on the side. Don't think I'll bother with anything else. I have some butter beans fresh from the market but I think I'll do them up tomorrow when it will be just me for dinner. Nobody else in the family likes them.

I'm grilling bone in chicken breasts, thick sliced zucchini and there is a bowl of summer pickles I made earlier today for them to marinate. Watermelon for later.

I have pizza dough on the counter from the freezer that is taking its own sweet time getting ready.

I went grocery shopping today and got a deal on thick-cut pork chops that were nearing the sell-by date. I'll probably pan-fry them with some kind of sauce. Don't know what yet. Haven't decided on a starch yet, either. So, so far, pork chops

How do you freeze your pizza dough?

Snacking

I'm having the other half of my PB+J sandwich I made for lunch. I had a sweet tooth, so I got some chocolate covered donuts from the vending machine. I still might make a quesadilla. I'm also cleaning. So I feel really lazy about dinner.

Today is not very healthy dinner. I did have a wonderful salad with lunch

I typically use a freezer.

After the first rise when I make dough balls I stick the extras in individual bags and freeze it.

When I want to use it I put it on a floured counter and cover it. The thaw and rise usually takes about 4ish hours.
