What's For Dinner Saturday 6th July 2013

Tonight we had pork sausages, chips and fried eggs

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

It's going to be hot and humid. I'm going to take a bunch of greens from the garden, Chinese pea pods, fresh blackberries (from the berry patch), radishes, walnuts, and some grated parm. I will dress the salad with fresh herbs, EVOO, a dash of soy sauce, and some white wine vinegar. Maybe toss some leftover turkey in as well.

I have my mentoring session this morning and I drive by a farmers market to get there. I plan on stopping on my way home. I'll pick up some sweet corn for sure and I'll check out their other offerings. Maybe get some potatoes, tomatoes, etc. After I see what's available, I'll plan dinner around the market trip.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I'm thinking pizza. Everyone usually makes their own. I'm thinking margarita or ground pork and onion.

We're having a small gathering at our house tonight before heading out to a concert. Dinner will be grilled salmon with orange glaze, tri-color beans, roasted baby potatoes, and green salad with homemade buttermilk dressing.

DH has moved literally a ton of paving stones from the stoneyard to our backyard, for use in building our new, expanded patio, so he has a hearty appetite today I picked up some New York strip steaks for grilling and will make either grilled potatoes or potato salad and a saute of garden summer squash, onion and garlic.

We had chicked sauteed with garlic and onions, pasta with homemade parmesian sauce, and fresh vegetables. Hubby and I shared with the neices tonight. Dinner was good. The company was great.

Steve, can I come live with you? Pretty please? You and your gang do so many fun things and Himself isn't a fun guy. Doesn't mean I don't love him, but he's kinda...boring?? I'll even wash the pots and pans.

I'm making taco pot to use up my ground beef. Last time I mixed seasonings for tacos I made enough for four times. Gonna make sure I use more lettuce than chips since it's so hot here. I washed up fruits to make a salad from peaches, blueberries, red grapes, and cherries. Have to cut up the peaches and pit the cherries, then I'll add a banana right before we eat it. It will be dessert with a dollop of ice cream. Cool foods for hot weather.
