Whats for Dinner Sunday, July 16th

I watched Paula Dean today and she made a marinade that sounded really good. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._33851,00.html

I switched some of the ingredients.....I used 1 tsp lemon concentrate (bottled) vs. 3 tsp lemon......I used Dijon Mustard vs. Prepared.......I only used 1/2 cup of BBQ Sauce and I used Sweet Baby Rays Honey & Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce. Instead of the Pork Roast I used 3 butterflied Thick Pork Chops. I marinated them for 1 hour. They turned out so good and the meat was moist and tender. This is def. one I'm writing down for my recipe box.

I also made homemade herb dressing.......one of my favorite sides, parsley/chive buttered small red pototoes and bread and buttered pickles. For dessert I just opened a can of pears as I plan on making that peach pie later.

That marinade sounds really good. How did you cook your pork chops and how long? Im making a roast beef, with potatoes, onions, carrotts, green beans.

I marinated it for 1 hour in the refrigerator and then preheated the oven to 350 degrees. I lined a cookie sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up and then put in a cooling rack.....the kind you cool cookies or pies on. I placed the marinated chops on top of the cooling rack....that way dripping fell below the rack. I baked them at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour. Perfect temp and timing as they were really tender and moist.

We'll be doing a quick and easy Marcella Hazan pasta recipe that is basically just a browned butter and fresh sage sauce over fettucine. Probably steam some cauliflower to go with it because I love that veggie with pasta.

Of course, this all depends upon whether we can stand being in the kitchen later today. Even here a couple blocks from the beach in SoCal, it is unusually hot and muggy, muggy, muggy. I won't complain, though, because it is 110 degrees inland.

Lamb burgers
stuffed with onions
and feta cheese.

I also have two big zucchini flowers that I'm going to stuff
with the lamb mixture.

When I went shopping at Costco last week I bought two tequila lime marinated turkey breast tenderloin, so tonight I am going to grill one of them. With the tenderloin I am having Mexican rice and Black Bean Salad. I also made a batch of Andy M's Thai Pickled Cucumbers to eat during the week, if they last more than a day or two.

We're having shrimp "on the barbie"...or that's the plan. It's so darned hot out, we may just make a Shrimp Scampi in the skillet. Thank heaven for AC.
Either way, I'm going to whip up a little fetticine, and try out the Parmesiagno Reggiano that I just got. We really need something green, so I may throw a few frozen peas in with the fetticine to ease my conscience.

PS...DH just came in, and he just wants the leftover chicken from last night. Guess we'll save the shrimp for another time.
