What's for Dinner? (Sunday 24th of July)

I've taken out a whole chicken to defrost. Thinking maybe chicken soup with dumplings :) I'll see if I can find good soup veggies when I go to the store later!

Sounds good. I was going to do something with butterbeans for dinner but I can't think of anything to make out of them? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Butter beans make a delicious curry. Just fry some chopped onions, maybe some carrot and celery if you have. Add some good curry paste and a bit of stock. Veg or chicken. Add butter beans and cook till tender. Stir in some cream, sour cream or coconut milk and serve with basmati rice.

Made my Chicken Soup from scratch. Made some homemade chicken broth and added the shredded meat from a whole chicken. Some chopped leeks, carrots, turnips, celery and parsley. A few cloves, bay leaf, some coriander seed, celery salt and freshly ground black pepper. I'll make some dumplings to go inside and there we have it! What a mission lol !

The menu is out of my hands for the next few days. I am heading up to the lake and will be back mid week.

I'm hoping to get DH out to dinner for his birthday (it was Friday but he was laid up with a bum knee). He's better today and only using 1 crutch so I think we can hit a restaurant.

This is a fatty You will see some other fatties in the smoking forum.
I'm going to try one by substituting salmon patty mixture for the ground sausage.

I thawed out some boneless country style ribs and will shred and mix with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce (first time for me).
