What's for dinner? Saturday 6-8-19

I'm having pan seared scallops with garlic lemon butter, and fresh green beans with mushrooms and toasted almonds.

What will be on your plate?

Sweet Spicy beans over whole wheat pasta. One of the family favorites.

I'm glad I double-checked before I posted my thread, Cheryl. You beat me. I guess that sort of thing happens on National Best Friends Day. It's also National Rose Wine Day, so there's that.

Nothing exotic on our table. Instead, I'm making tossed salads and Naan bread pizzas-to-order.

It's also the one-year anniversary of the death of Anthony Bourdain. Seems like yesterday and yet so long ago.

You are a sweetie, CG. Wow, can hardly believe it's been a year since Anthony Bourdain passed away. Time goes by WAY too quickly.

I made Dragonlady sesame noodles early this afternoon. We snacked on those a bit. Then we had smoked meat sandwiches that DH picked up at "The Main" on Boulevard St-Laurent in Montreal, while he was out with friends last night. I love the smoked meat sandwiches from The Main. I've been going there since the late 1970s. They season and smoke the briskets in house. I had a bit more of the Dragonlady noodles with that, since I was only having half my sandwich now. They pile a lot of meat on those sandwiches.

I need to finish off some leftovers tonight. Pizza and wings.

If I can stand the heat, I'll probably grill or smoke something tomorrow.

I'm actually headed to the kitchen to cook tonight!

I have a beautiful eggplant, some zucchini, bell peppers, and fresh tomatoes so I'll be making Ratatouille and serving it with leftover rotisserie chicken.

It's World Oceans Day! For those interested:

https://www.un.org/en/events/oceansday/

It's fabulous early summer weather - temps in the low 70's, and nary a cloud in the sky. Went to daughter and SIL's for dinner. We took a pasta salad, daughter and SIL provided grilled cheeseburgers and a garden salad.

We had skillet pizzas on tortillas using some of our garden grown basil. The one thing the critters haven't eaten. Also salads and a beer for me.
