What's for Dinner, Sat. 10/21

We're making homemade calzones with crimini mushrooms and proscuitto. Probably a salad on the side if we're feeling healthy and my "goofed" version of VeraBlue's Pumpkin coffee cake for dessert (if it's edible! ).

We're in the mood for burgers and fries so I'm going to season the burgers up with different spices and some worcheshire sauce. For the fries I'll season them with EVOO, Kosher Salt, Chili Powder and a little Paprika. And to finish it off......homemade milkshakes.

Se non supporta il calore, vattene dalla cucina!

Artichoke quiche, tossed salad and garlic bread. All the oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies are gone, so not sure what we'll have for dessert. Although, Buck still has some of his Brach's Halloween harvest mix left and imagine that's what he'll have. It's his favorite candy and he lives for this time of the year.

Salmon which is spending a little while sopaked in lime juice, chilli, honey and sesame oil with oriental black rice (as opposed to the wild American rice) and green beans, followed by a pineapple and rum tarte tatin.

I started planning a menu for DH being home next weekend too, I am trying to think of lots of cook in advance stuff or minimal cook stuff that will wow but not take up too much of our four days. ....

Yum, there are some good dinners planned tonight!
I have another show, so dinner will be a snack beforehand. Something to give me super energy powers!

Baked pork tenderloin stabbed and stuffed with garlic slivers and dried plums then doused with Madeira. On the side, roasted veggies (onions, butternut squash, new potatoes) drizzled with EVOO and balsamic vinegar.

For dessert, we'll probably go out for the new Vanilla Frosty from Wendy's. They were just released in my neck of the woods!

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
