What's for dinner, Monday, April 9, 2007?

So warm here, we are really basking in it now......

I coated some chicken legs in honey and mustard yesterday and we'll have them cold with some ugly tomatos sliced and seasons and some basil, we have a buffulo mozzerella, a nice chevre, some gorgonzola too. But we are out of bread because I forgot how much DH grazes and had not prepared for enough daytime food... so we'll have celery and carrot sticks and a bottle of rose and the rest of yesterday's spanish Cream for pudding.

ETA, oh, I'm such a copy cat...Urmaniac's post below has convinced me to throw some polenta into the mix....solves the carb problem for DH!

Agh!! I hate it when we find out that we are out of bread!!
So we try to keep a few packages of semi-ready-to-serve baguettes (stuff that are sold vacuum packed and you pop in the oven for 8-10 minutes...very handy and reasonably good) in stock for this sort of emergencies!

Not sure what we would do today yet... maybe some polenta with shrooms and sausage sauce, or chilli, or maybe we will go to Metro this afternoon if it is open, we often find great produce on sale there, so we may pick up something that inspire us for our din-din

I've got a couple racks of spareribs. I'm going to season them with a dry rub here in a little bit, then later this afternoon I'll smoke them. Maybe make some potato salad and cole slaw.

Not cooking -Monday's Girls night out, but can't wait to have our left over Honey Baked ham tomorrow!

Change of plans- bummer - but one friend is sick, one spent too much money for Easter, and one has to be to work at 6am.
Supper will be Ham sandwiches, fries, cole slaw amd pie for dessert, (made three diff. ones for Easter).

I have a long and late rehearsal tonight, I'll probably have some leftover spagetti before I go.

I'm with ya HB
Guess I'll start a pot of bean soup with yesterday's ham bone tonight while I'm heating up leftovers. It's still chilly here in Md, so a pot of soup will be good.

I'm trying a new recipe I made up, Lentil PIE! It's basically Shephards PIE with lentils instead of meat, hope it turns out good!

It's a friends last night so he wants authentic Mexican. We are going to go to a neighborhood place, Taqueria Medina. They make homemade corn tortillas for all their tacos & their barbacoa is to die for!
