What's for Dinner Thursday May 5/11?

Well, I've taken a chicken out to thaw for dinner. Its still a bit solid, I'll see if brining helps. If not...well...frozen pizza!

Hmmm, dinner... good question.
Today is our 1 out of 15 days it is not expected to rain, so lots to do outside. I've already gotten the areas that I am landscaping this year sprayed with grass killer and the house and toybox sprayed for crawly things. I've got grass to mow and field to brush hog. It would be nice to get the truck washed, too. If the truck gets washed I'll make a trip into the grocery store and pick up some chicken wings for the grill. If not...

Yesterday's lasagna. It was good then and should be even better today.

Either chicken nuggets or hamburger casserole. DS is stopping in on his way home from work tonight. He's to call and let me know which he wants for supper. Salads and green beans with either main dish.

Lots of prepping for weekend guests so something simple is on the menu. Not sure what it is yet, but may be take-out Chinese.

I envy you the ramps, have always wanted to try them but the ones we get down here, even in the pricy markets, look like junk.

Because I am not Mexican, I do not celebrate Cinco de Mayo. So it surprised me to find that it actually was Cinco de Mayo after I already planned my Spanish supper of El Pollo Chilindrón, Spanish rice, pan rustica Español, and a 2008 Tinto Figuero Ribera del Duero (yes, this Spanish chicken dish is best paired with red wine).

BTW, I don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day or Bastille Day either, because I am not Irish or French, respectively. I do however, celebrate the Lunar New Year because i am looney.

Mmmmmm. Take out is some of the best food IMO. I'm going to BE a weekend guest at my sister's this weekend and I'm trying to think about what to take with me. I think I need to get baking!
