What's for Dinner Saturday, October 9th

Today my husband is starting his annual cassoulet. Since it won't be ready to eat until tomorrow, I'm debating what to do about today. I think our local grocer is having a special on fresh trout, but that may be pushing him (I do 99% of the cooking in the house, but trout and cassoulet are his provinces). I need to grocery shop anyway, and am debating. Maybe I'll buy one of those roasted chickens. I've got some flat iron steaks in the freezer, maybe a simple steak and potato thing (somehow the scent of fish mixed in with the scent of cassoulet doesn't do it for me). Oh, well, I'll chime in later with what I decided upon!

I am on my way out soon. So while on my travels I will hopefully figure out whats for dinner. Have a great day. Long overdue lunch with my girlfriend for food and catch up. We will probably hit the Farm again so I will more than likely have more goodies later.

We're off out tonight, hopefully going to Circles, an Irish bar in Brooklyn. If so I'm hoping to have one of my favourite dishes, bangers and mash.

I just grilled some chicken sausages with onions for brunch with a rice ball and zucchini sticks to follow.

It's gonna be 89 degrees here today, but undeterred will still do what I have planned for dinner, smothered chicken with onion gravy and roast baby spuds.

Once I got to the store I found tuna on special as well. So I'm searing tuna, roasting "quarter bakes", and a simple salad, with the last of the tomatoes from the garden.

Hello everyone,

It's such a beautiful day here, it would be a shame not to grill something for dinner. So, while I was out I picked up a beautiful flank steak that I will marinate in some EVOO, soy, and garlic, and lemon and DH will grill later today. On the side we'll have caprese pasta. Pasta with basil, garden tomaoes, and a ball of fresh mozzarella cubed and tossed with EVOO.

Enjoy the day

Well, it is overcast, cool and at times rainy here (after all we aren't the "wet coast" for nothing). So, I have a nice big pot of hamburger soup simmering. I will make some cheese biscuits to serve with it as well.

I have basically been a lazy lump of "do-nothingness" all day, so I am seriously considering just having Braunschweiger and cheese sandwiches. I never made it to the grocery store today, and I didn't defrost anything. I know James will be happy with sandwiches, as he bought two packages of Braunschweiger yesterday.

Ok, back to being a lazy lump.
