What's for Dinner, Saturday, August 23?

It is late afternoon and no dinner thread started yet. I came here for ideas, no luck.
I have to work tomorrow evening shift, so I am making Beef Stroganoff, fresh Garden Salad and Fresh Peach Pie with Candied Pecan Topping. I am looking forward to eating that.

Paul's taking me out to dinner! Not sure where but fancy, good, relaxed and quiet are the requirements.!!

Givin' my little 4-cup crock-pot another workout. Threw some onions, carrots, celery and chicken in. Did the salt and pepper thing and added some fresh basil leaves. Should begin to smell good pretty soon. Not sure what else I'll have. It's warmed up here again and that depresses my appetite. As it is, I'll probably eat half of what I cook today. Want something sweet, but it's too hot to bake.

Leftover hickory smoked chicken quarters and breasts here.

Wife says it's the best rub I've made. Glad I wrote it down.

I dunno what I'll be eating, but I'll definitely be cooking! There were some absolutely incredible deals at the store last night, and I ended up coming home with around 40 pounds of whole chickens and pork products- all of which I'll be breaking down soon. I'll start with the chicken, so I can get some stock made, and then I'll probably start trimming pork loins, and then start my boston butt curing to be used in pulled pork later this week.

I also grabbed some dried anchos, and since I'm nearly out of my homemade mole sauce, I'm bedating on whether I should make more, or simply use the anchos as a base for some homemade BBQ, which I am out of.

I got a huge watermelon, which I need to break down to use for watermelon salsa.

I'm guessing that all of this will be taking up the rest of my afternoon and most of the evening- and I'll probably just end up nibbling throughout the day.

Just got back from vacation. No food in the house so we will go out. I am in the mood for a nice piece of RED meat!

We are going to a couples baby shower. My neighbor is having 60 people over for this AND he is grilling steaks for everyone - is that nuts or what?! He told me there will be a bourbon slush station - now, this is my kind of baby shower!

Meatloaf, potato patties, tiny Brussels sprouts, green beans, tomato/cucumber salad and dessert will be ice cream. All vegetables are from today's farmers market.
