What's for dinner? Sunday 8-23-15

I picked up a rotisserie chicken from Costco yesterday - I think I'll pull the drumsticks off and have those. Sides will be watermelon and blueberries, and that'll probably do it.

What's on everyone's plate today?

I just made a Thai cucumber salad to go along with Shrimp Pad Thai I will be making later.

I roasted a chicken and oven braised a small eye of round in foil this morning.

I will portion them into meal size packages, for the freezer, when I fix dinner.

Tonight will be chicken or beef, broccoli, a salad and iced tea!

I'm in the middle of making Andy's Ranch Potato Salad
although I'm cutting the recipe in half and using red potatoes.
We'll also have some brined and fried thick loin pork chops and glorified green salads.

The person who plans ahead could do this at home. In the back yard. On the grill. Even have a siesta in a lawn chair while keeping an eye on the cooker. The other person gets take out. I 'm off to my favorite BBQ joint for spare ribs. They use hickory and cherry wood. I use hickory and apple. Mine are Just as good. There is NO justification for this in summer. Although one rack makes enough for 3-4 meals, so the cost is spread out. And I like their hot vinegary bbq sauce on the side.

I have seafood for Himself to grill...and lousy weather for it. Guess I'm cooking all the food inside. *sigh* I'll sear the small tuna steak in a CI pan, saute the shrimp in garlic butter, and quick-boil the snow crab knuckles. To compensate for me having to cook, we're having frozen peas (steamed) and haflebach potatoes. Going old-school with a wedge salad.

This was a really good dinner last night, if I do say so myself




I had made the peperonata previously, so DH just warmed it up in a cast iron skillet on the grill. Or maybe he used the side burner, I don't really know. But

It was my husband's birthday so his favorite was requested and made. Lamb shank in the slow cooker with a red wine sauce and veg, served on a bed of garlic mash followed by his favorite homemade chocolate cake.

Rich meal indeed! But a real Sunday treat!
