What's for Dinner Thursday Mar 8/12?

Sorry, I'm not feeling creative today. Feel free to adjust the title Mods.

I am back to work tonight (waaaaa!) so I'll be leaving dinner for the family. Ken requested chicken cacciatore so I might leave that. The girls might have other ideas though. The base of dinner will be boneless chicken thighs/breasts.

The only part I'm SURE about is dessert. I never got time to bake yesterday so there is a cake being made today. I'm already looking forward to perusing my books and files with a cup of coffee in hand. I'm sure it will come as no surprise that I'm leaning toward something citrusy. I'm not in a chocolate mood.

Well today in Russia is Ladies Day (March 8th) but unfortunately my DW is still in hospital:( Anyway, seeing as it's Pie week in England I wanted to bring back some childhood memories of when we used to go down to Cornwall to the seaside and eat Cornish Pasties. I'd never cooked them before and also always been a bit of a chicken when it comes to pastry but thanks to this site and reading all the info they came out tasting great and look.....well.....rustic I guess you could call it

Pizza for us. Grandson is here today so I made some dough and pizza sauce last night. Today Steven and I will have a pepperoni pizza for lunch. Tonight, SO and I will have a Margarita pizza for dinner.

Please tell us about keema. I Googled and it said it was a South Asian meat dish.

All I know is that dinner will revolve around a pork tenderloin. Above that I haven't a clue. I have a mid afternoon doctor's appointment in the City which means we will be getting home at dinner time. I may just do a basic rub, sear it and finish it in the oven or make medallions.

Whatever I do, I have to decide before DH goes for his nap after lunch so I can do any prep.

All your dinners sound awesome!
