What's for dinner Thursday May 23rd?

I'm pan frying up some potato slices, adding chopped onion and garlic, and sliced Italian sausage links and finally, some fresh asparagus...to be eaten with garlic bread. It looks like asparagus season is winding down.

What are you fixing?

Smile Beef Stir Fry

I'm making beef stir fry for supper. I don't particularly like the taste of ginger but I want to try and get used to it so I'll be using some in the stir fry. I also like to use cabbage but I'll have to decide if I want to buy a whole head which is a lot of cabbage! I'm also adding some green onions (or scallions), snap peas and a bell pepper. Making my own sauce seems healthier and easy so I'll be trying that tonight too. I'll serve with brown rice.

Your potatoes, sausage and asparagus sounds yummy!

Partially deconstructed beef pot pie with the rest of the leftover roast beef from the freezer that I used for open faced sammies earlier in the week. Honestly, I didn't feel like making a 2 crust pie so I asked Craig if he wanted it deconstructed so the pastry would stay nice and crisp. He fell for it hook, line and sinker! Onion and garlic gravy with a base of demi, mushrooms, carrots, and potatoes

Dry sea scallops were on sale for $12.99 / lb., so I couldn't pass it up. Pan seared, served over a bed of bacon, shallots, and corn, garden salad on the side.

Eschia - cabbage keeps for an incredibly long time in the fridge. I usually only use a portion of a head, then wrap it up and store it. I just slice off a thin strip off the cut side, and it's it's good to go. Oh, and welcome to DC.

Aunt Bea, I'd be happy with just the asparagus. My favorite veggie!

Just tossed pasta into boiling water to make a half-recipe variation of this: Michael Symon's Orecchiette with Sausage & Swiss Chard. I have a little less pasta, a little more beans and sausage, and a whole lot more of Swiss Chard. Since we thought it was too starchy the first time around, I hope this version is more to our liking. Besides, those ratios use up what I have of each item.
