What's for dinner? Tuesday 4-5-16

It'll be a pork sirloin chop, just not sure yet how I want to prepare it. Either lightly breaded, browned, braised and with a mushroom gravy, or grilled on the Weber. I'm kind of leaning towards grilled - less fuss and it's such a beautiful sunny day.

Sides will be broccoli and cauliflower.

What's everyone having this evening?

That's what I'm having, too, Cheryl.

There's a pork chop in my fridge marinating in a dry rub of ground chipotle and garlic. I'm pan frying it. I'm also finishing leftover asparagus from a couple of nights ago.

There's baseball on the radio right now! (Technically, online via my phone - the modern "radio".) To celebrate the return of the Boys of Summer*, we'll be having hot dogs with Bertman's mustard, potato salad, and baked beans. A bottle of Great Lakes beer will wash mine down, while Himself will go rogue and probably have...some pop.

*Those "boys" play no matter what the weather. Game time temperature in Cleveland was 34 degrees Fahrenheit. At least it was sunny. That's good, right?

CG, I'm watching the same game as you. In honor of the game in Cleveland, we're having chili 😀 and cornbread for dinner.

Tex-Mex lasagna - tortillas, black beans, corn, tomatoes, chilies, shredded cheddar, ground turkey, and the usual Tex-Mex spices. Spinach salad.

It will be some sort of baked cod, and with the oven on, some roasted asparagus.

Pork chops for us too! Must be a trend today. Started them brining about an hour ago. We are going to sear on the stovetop and then finish in the oven sitting on top of stuffing with a granny smith in it. Green beans and braised cabbage (had some leftover from last week's meals) on the side.

That sounds delicious Steve, and you gave me an idea. I don't have ground chipotle, but I do have a jar of Adobo seasoning from my last Penzey's order that I haven't tried yet. I'm going to try it on my pork chop. It's been marinating in the fridge, until grillin' time.

My mom is in town overnight and she's taking us out for dinner. We're going to our local Mexican place.

I planned on a cheeseburger, mac & cheese, and a Stella Artois, but I am having a cracked filling replaced this afternoon, so it might be just the Stella Artois, or several Stella Artois!
