What's for dinner? Saturday 2-27-16

High of 80F on this beautiful sunny day - I'm going to grill some chicken thighs and asparagus. I'll probably do something with a potato too, not sure what yet - maybe I'll bake one in the toaster oven and have it with sour cream and chopped green onions.

What's on everyone's plate today? Looks pretty nice weather wise across most of the country.

It is so nice here today I fired up the smoker. I have a meatloaf in it for supper. As long as it was going I threw in some chicken wings and a small ham.

Sunny here, but it barely topped 30 F today. Took doggy to the beach, but the wind made for a chilly walk. Had a rather filling lunch out today, so it will be a light dinner. A simple thin crust pizza, topped with cheese, marinated sun dried tomatoes and kalamata olives.

Roasted a turkey today, to be eaten with mashed potatoes, gravy and asparagus.

Nice looking meal, GA!

I haven't the faintest. I finally froze the remaining neverending chicken Alfredo. I have another hankering for baked breaded chicken strips, or maybe we'll order takeout.

Edit: following a brief discussion, Chinese takeout it is! Egg rolls, hot and sour soup, pork chop suey, and shrimp egg foo yung.

DH mentioned going out to dinner and I'm not going to argue! I have in mind a local restaurant called HomeGrown whose chef buys the produce from the same farmer that sells at our farmers market. He makes his own pickles, breads and cured meats. I might just get the snack platter and a salad.

Right now the plan is for shrimp pad thai.

Beautiful plates GA!

We're doing a big Taco salad tonight. I might even fry up some corn tortilla wedges for my man.
