What's for dinner Sun 10/23???

We got such a late start on the daily dinner thread yesterday, today's will make up for it

Today for dinner, Pacanis' Personal Pigskin Challenge, my team is playing Seattle.
Ahh, Seattle... land of software, coffee, grunge, smarmy teen vampire movies and FISH! Most notably salmon and crab, so today it's wild caught (by someone else) salmon for dinner. To kick it up a notch, Seattle is also apparently known for their Vietnamese food, so it will be a salmon rice dish with a ginger lime sauce.

Anyone else have their dinner plans decided yet? I know, too early!

We'll be having a sirloin tip roast rubbed with an herb rub. Not sure if I'll go baked potato, or some other form of starch. Salad to go with.

I stripped the braised pork shoulder off the bone, and returned the bone and skin to the pot. Lots of meat left there. I'll simmer that for an hour or two, then remove the bone and fat, add a chopped onion, garlic and half a pound of dried 15 beans.

I sliced one package across the grain and will use that for pork tacos/burritos - I got three big (quart) baggies.

I may just let the beans marinate in the fridge overnight and make the tacos. I think pork will be a nice change.

Heading out to my parents, so whatever my mom's making. She's an amazing cook, so I'm set!

Not sure what I'll make yet. Thinking maybe spaghetti. The other choice is hot dogs. I'll probably let the guys decide which they want.

I decided to go with a spicy Chinese cucumber salad to accompany the fish. I just finished slicing up the cukes and salting them to draw the moisture out.
What a pathetic football day. I have to watch my own team play the early game...

I made myself a couple of wrap sandwiches using tortillas for brunch. I was so hungry, and I think i overdid it. My eyes were bigger than my stomach. I'm not hungry at all right now. Mark is out, and I have no idea
what time he's coming home. I don't feel like making two dinners, so he is on his own tonight. If I have something, it will be a lot later.
