I decided to go a different direction with the pork chops and potatoes. I cooked the pork chops (seasoned with Dave's seasoning) on my DeLonghi indoor grill, fried the potatoes, and we had California Blend vegetables.

Not a real attractive dinner , but it was mighty tasty! lol

I marinated the salmon fillet in the teriyaki sauce and it turned out ok. But as a whole my meal was very bland. I guess I am going to have to find a way to spice it up a little. I bought some Old Bay Seasoning last time I went shopping, maybe I should have put that on the salmon.

If you try it let me know what you did. I'm always looking to tweak.
I had dinner at a friend's that night, so I just now got around to having some of the roast. I grilled the bread, divided the meat between the two slices, topped with a mixture of sharp cheddar and Parmigiano-Reggiano, and put it under the broiler to brown. The beef was EXTREMELY chewy.

What's for Dinner Monday, January 25th?
