What's for Dinner Thursday Sept 8/11?

Holy cow, I can tell Snip's away. I've started this thread two days in a row now!

Its going to be hot as blazes later in the afternoon today, so my plan is to grill or do whatever I'm doing outside on the BBQ. I've got some lovely pork chops out, and we pulled a few onions out of the garden so there's a start. I have some rhubarb that needs using up so there might be some dessert happening with that. Veggies will be named later. Definitely a salad...I'm craving a caesar salad with lots of garlic to kill the germs that are lingering in my body.

I'm determined to remember to post a picture this time!

I was going to make some Louisiana style lil smokies over rice, but as I was picking up a green pepper at the store their eight piece fried chicken found it's way into my other hand... so now I'm thinking about shredding the remaining pieces and doing something with those. Chimichitos, chicken & biscuits or something.

I'm holding you to it LP....I love dem pictures.

I haven't the slightest idea what's for dinner tonight so I'm hoping for some inspiration. It's really hot here today also but we've been grilling so much I'm tired of doing that. Hmmmm, maybe I need to turn the AC to cold and pretend it's winter for some "soul food". Thinking, thinking.

Tonight's menu will include Pad Thai with shrimp, some sliced fresh garden tomato and Alix's lemon bars for dessert.

It's cloudy and overcast here with a good chance of rain. I've been craving chili ever since I got my "new" crockpot. (A friend was getting rid of it and it is bigger than my old one which chili always was almost overflowing). Got it cooking right now! I'll make some mayo rolls with it since DH doesn't care for cornbread. He's definitely a Yankee!

Since it's my day off I'll be throwing something in the smoker today. This way I can work on my back yard for a few hours while the smoker is doing its thing and not pay much attention to it. Hard labor, good grub.

Pork chops are brining! The corn stand is still out on the street, I may go get some corn on the cob to go with. I've decided on coleslaw and baked potatoes as our sides. I never got to dessert, so we'll have to stick with ice cream. Awwww...what a shame.

Don't forget to make yourself a 1 package Jiffy cornbread. Cook it in an 8" CI skillet.

If you don't eat it all, freeze the leftovers. Diced up, it's good in or on tamale pie or meatloaf.
