What's for dinner? Saturday 9-12-15

Hot and humid here today. I'll be having a chilled fruit salad, and raw veggies dipped in ranch dressing in front of the TV. I'd much rather have a nice rib eye or some roast beef but it's too hot to cook anything.

What's everyone having this evening?

We had another storm and it's cooled down to 71F. We'll sear some burgers on the cast iron griddle over my gas flame (since I don't have a flat top grill in my home kitchen ) Probably a green salad for the side.

DH brought home some kale from the break room at work (my new farmers market ) and I had no idea what to do with it, so I cut up a bunch of Canadian bacon, onions, cherry tomatoes, green pepper, and took the veins out of the kale and chopped up the leaves. Fried it all up in some butter.

Threw in a bunch of beaten eggs and shredded cheese and it's in the toaster oven baking now. I guess I'll call it a frittata.

Cool and rainy so I baked half a ham to warm up the house and make it smell like something wonderful was happening.

So tonight is ham and a salad!

Grilled Salmon fillet over field greens, strawberries, mandarin oranges and a chipotle vinaigrette...very yummy and I don't have to cook!

Now, back in the water, it's HOT!
