What's For Dinner Monday July 26?

It looks like no one started a thread for today, so I guess I will.

I am going to have nachos tonight, with ground beef, refried beans, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, onions, cheese, and anything else that looks like it would be good. Sweet tea to drink, and watermelon for dessert.

Barbara

I am going to make a recipe I found today, modified by me of course. I subbed the Feta cheese with Parmesan. I am going to add a rinsed and drained can of Cranberry beans and have Asparagus on the side and call it dinner!

Orzo with Parmesan Tomatoes and Dill

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill or dried dill eyeballing it
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese (6 ounces)


Preparation

Toss together oil, tomatoes, dill, zest, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a large serving bowl. Let stand at least ten minutes
Meanwhile, cook orzo in a pasta pot of boiling salted water (1 1/2 tablespoons salt for 4 quarts water) until al dente
Drain orzo and toss with tomato mixture. Add cheese and toss again

I put a chuck roast in the oven. It's the first piece of meat from the cow I bought. Will have baked potatoes and yellow squash with it.

Beef and pepper stir fry. I got some great peppers from the farmer's market.

Change of plans. SO was late coming home and too tired for dinner (I never understood that) so she snacked and I had leftover sesame ginger flank steak from last night and Dragon Lady's sesame noodles (thanks, KathleenA) leftover from lunch.

I have had my sesame fix for a while.
