What's for Dinner Sunday September 4th?

DH decided yesterday he needs to go semi "Atkins" for a couple of weeks and just wants meat and veggies. Dad just wants meat, potatoes and gravy and I am slowly reverting to being a vegetarian once again.

So, we are having grilled steak tonight. I will bake and mash a potato for Dad's and smother it all in packaged gravy (sounds awful but it works for him!) DH is having a steak salad and I will have a salad.

What's everyone else having?

My original plan was to make a quick meat sauce this evening to go over spaghetti. SO tells me we should consider going out for Chinese. Who am I to argue?

I have a little white sauce left and a sausage patty, so I'm thinking sausage gravy with eggs over easy and a toasted English muffin.

I am going to make andouille sausage and shrimp jambalaya, and use the leftovers to stuff these three great big red bell peppers I bought, for suppers next week. Yes, I WILL be parboiling the bell peppers before I stuff them. If you claim to be a classically trained chef and disagree with parboiling the bell peppers before stuffing and baking them, all I can say is YOU MUST HAVE BEEN OUT SICK THAT DAY!

Country steak and roasted red potato wedges. Maybe a pecan pie for dessert.

I'm thinking a steak with grilled potatoes and green beans.

I'm not a classically trained chef and I don't parboil my peppers.

But you go ahead and do whatever you want.

(I must have missed that thread!)

Breakfast! Eggs, bacon and homefries, I think.
