I'm making kale soup. The inspiration for which is this recipe:

Recipe Details

I use homemade sausage (kielbasa works well, and it is a delicious soup without the sausage as well) and veggie broth and, since the potatoes I dug earlier this week are Norlands (don't have Yukon Gold this year, and Kennebecs are farther down the row, haven't gotten there yet), I will use Norlands (a red potato). I like that this recipe because it is like a cream soup, but without the cream. The pureed potatoes thicken it. I might add some diced tomato, carrots, and celery as well. And, I might even make some 12-minute Yogurt Biscuits (The New Chatelaine Cookbook, p. 219) which is similar to this recipe Yogurt Biscuits Recipe.

I'm defrosting a small pork sirloin roast. I'll make a string bean and tomato veggie side dish and maybe a little potato for me.

Mmmm... sounds great. And reminds me that I need to get a batch of homemade sauerkraut going.

Tonight we're having Greek shrimp salads. Just a quick meal before we head off to a wine tasting.

We're going here for dinner tonight!
Old Surrey Restaurant

I think I am going for the End of Summer menu with the Bisque, Lamb and Creme Caramel, but I have lots of time to change my mind

Sounds delish! The End of Summer menu offers a lot of the same choices from the tasting menu. I'd probably pick the same things, but skip the creme caramel and have a B52 (it is your b'day, after all and you did say you made a cake...). How fun!

A "faux" Pho, with beef broth, flank steak, ginger, chinese stir-fry veggies, fideo noodles, bean sprouts, fresh limes, etc. Will check out the fresh mint and basil at the market. Here's the general idea:

Have fun with it. Use seafood (shrimp etc.) in place of beef, add fresh veggies (bok choy, mushrooms, etc.), garlic, scallions, broth of choice. I'm using what I have on hand. (Don't care for star anise or addition of cinnamon.) Go by your taste & ingredients you like. I may make it in the slow cooker & add vegetables at the end. BTW, like your new avatar :)
