What's for Dinner Saturday May 2?

I am planning on making pesto, 2 cheeses, and tomato calzones with a fresh spinach salad for me and steamed spinach with balsamic vinegar for dh.

I am not fond of cooked spinach as a side. But I am looking forward to my first fresh spinach salad of the season, will try to make bacon, hard cooked eggs, roasted walnuts, raisins and already have made the raspberry vinaigrette yesterday

My BF and I are going to his Aunt's house for dinner. No special occasion... just that we haven't had dinner together in awhile. His two cousins will be there also. I have no idea what she is having. She recently had hip surgery, so I'm sure his cousin Lisa will be preparing something delicious. She's a pastry chef, but makes fantastic meals too! I'll have to come back and let you know tonight.

I rarely eat out anymore, but I'm thinking about walking the dog down to a taqueria a few blocks away. It's just a little taco stand with some tables outside. They have good tacos de lengua, but it's Saturday and on the weekends they make great menudo.

For tonight's dinner I am making Pad Thai with shrimp. I haven't made this in a while and have been craving it.

We're going to friends for dinner, but I think I'd like what UB is having.

I think I'd like to head over to UB's for that single barrel.
But over here if the rain allows we're having BBQ chix on the grill. Loves me some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. Au gratin potatoes and Le Sueur peas.

I "created" a Mexi-style casserole yesterday, put most of it in the freezer, but there's enough for tonight's supper. Lots of stuff in it, which makes a meal in a pan. I'll have chocolate cake again for dessert.

Gettin' ready to pour a mint julep to drink as I watch the Derby on TV.
