What's for Dinner Thursday Dec 8/11?

Immaculate conception day. My nephew's birthday. I have not a single clue what to make for dinner. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to plan meals when I don't know who will be home for dinner, or when they will BE home. With all the lessons, work schedules its getting tough to make a meal. I have exhausted my stock of make ahead and keep warm items. I'd like to just have a sit down meal.

OK, enough venting. Sorry. Tonight will be chicken, I'm thinking either cornflake chicken or garlic parmesan chicken. I haven't decided on sides or a salad yet.

SO will be working late the next two nights so I ran out and picked up the fixins for Cuban sandwiches. That's tonight's dinner. I'll be roasting the pork now then prep the sandwiches a little closer to her arrival and get the Griddler ready so when she comes home all I have to do is put the sandwiches on the grill and cook them while she relaxes with a drink.

Jersey Mike's sub, probably a cheese steak, and a nice cold beer.

If my pork loin cubes thaw in time we will be having sweet and sour pork, jasmine rice and salad. If not it will be a dinner salad (greens, raw broccoli, mushroom caps, black olives) tossed with homemade dressing and topped with tuna and hard boiled eggs. Either way dessert will be homemade rice pudding (got it done this morning can't wait to try it).

Sunday came early this week, much to my surprise (thanks for the heads up, Frank).
Tonight Cleveland is playing Pittsburgh on Thursday night football. My personal pigskin challenge is focusing on the sandwich the 'Burgh is known for... and has been featured quite a bit on various food shows... The Primanti Bros Cheesesteak!

YUM. That really sounds appetizing!

I wish I had the energy to make something like that. I'm moving kinda slow today. Dinner is going to be something with ground beef and pasta.

I changed my mind. I have to use up a tomato, so I'm making BLT's.
