What's for Dinner - Sunday 10th June

Been cooking some beef in red wine for 4 hours now. Only another 4 to go.

One potted the beef with some potatoes, shallots and carrots.

That sounds good, Regallion! Here, I'll be grilling balsamic-rosemary chicken breasts and a variety of vegetables. I'm making more than enough so we have extras for salads and sandwiches throughout the week.

I am trying to decide which labor saving device I want to drag out, 12 inch frying pan, electric griddle, or the good ol' George Foreman, to make myself a really good breakfast/brunch because I am hitting the outlet mall with a vengence today. Because of that, I don't plan on making a big production out of supper. I took out a couple of chicken breasts to thaw, so I will toss them on the barbeque grill, where I will annoint them with some kind of Asian inspired sauce to make a big Chinese Chicken salad, and I have some egg rolls at the front of the freezer, just in case I am inclined to drag out the deep frier.

I'm cooking up a nice pork roast for my DH and me. I'll sear it first and than cook it in the oven on top of finely chopped carrots, celery, and onions which will end up being used in the end with the gravy.

I'll be serving peas with prosciutto and mashed potatoes. The peas and proscuitoo is from Gida De Laurentiis "Food Network" and will be trying that for the first time.

>> peas and prosciutto
This is a very nice combination and one I do often. I actually use cubetti de pancetta (google it ) and some fried shallots with the peas. It's a winner!

In addition to the crockpot "mess" going (see post in Introductions...), DH grilled a lovely rib roast, asparagus and fresh corn ... all outside... YUMMY. (And very little mess to clean up!)

well it WAS gunna be marinaded cubed chicken breast done in the oven, but I decided I`m gunna BBQ it instead and do some flat breads on there too, so as not to waste the residual heat, this`ll be served with a Ranch Salad.
So long and Thanks for all the Fish ;)

pork chops that were dredged in flour, s&p, garlic powder and mustard, then browned and put in the crock pot with a sliced onion and a jar of canned potatoes. Not quite sure what to expect? Especially since I now think the chops were smoked.
And a side of cooked spinach, haven't tried that dish yet this season!

We're having roast chicken dinner here tonight. i'll do oven roasted potatoes to go with and steam some veggie (asparagus maybe?) and do a big salad too. Then I'm off to work for the evening.
