What's for dinner Sunday July 11?

We are working on leftovers; dh is really liking the beef/lamb burgers I grilled and froze in his absence, and I am eating the scalloped chicken. Cole salw for me as a side; potato chips and bread for dh.

What's cooking at your place?

A promise of a rain-free evening turns the the dinner choice to NY strip steaks on the grill. A tossed salad will compliment the steaks.

This was last night's dinner for myself and a few friends. So good. Had it with some simple roasted potatoes.

I am going to try my hand at steamed dumplings tonight. I think I might go check out Fred Meyer's and see if they have a bamboo steamer, if not I will just use my other steamer lined with lettuce.

I'm usually better at meal planning than I have been the past week or two, but realized on Friday, as I took home the oversized portions from a restaurant dinner, that I had a fridge full of complete meals of leftovers. A little restaurant, a little over-preparing in case someone came by over the holiday weekend, etc. Turned out to be a good thing, since somehow I hurt my foot and standing for any time to cook isn't a practical option. So leftovers are the name of the game. Tonight it will be barbecued wings and German potato salad I made a week ago.

I'm going to grill bacon wrapped scallops pretty soon, and anyone who doesn't want to eat those can have leftover pork roast.

We're eating early as Ken is off to a football game and Bugs has a practice.

i miss having access to garden fresh veggies. so good and so good for you. markets , at least mine aims at the people that have no clue of veggies other that corn, and green beans. i would kill for a tomato that is not tasteless. i buy hot house, it has some flavor. my gardening skills are, alas are not very good or i would try it again. my tomato plants, i planted three different kinds were not very productive. alack and alas, i need a uncle bob, lol
