What's for dinner? Tuesday, 8-9-16

I'm thinking shrimp tacos and Black Bean and Corn Salad. The shrimp is thawing and I'm just now fixin' to make the salad. It'll be an early dinner today.

What's on your plate?

It's 91F here and SO and grandson decided I should make pizza. So, we're having pepperoni pizza for dinner.

I don't know what I'm making for the elders, but I'm having some of the cold beet and buttermilk soup I made this morning. It is too hot to cook here, too. I am thinking the elders might eat a cold chicken pasta salad...

Daughter K moved into an apartment upstairs from me over the weekend. She has finally expressed an interest in learning to cook, and should be stopping over soon to help me get dinner together. I think the plan is still to make Thai Coconut Curry tonight.

SIL is traveling this week, so daughter and grandbaby came over for dinner. Lobster (on sale this week at $4.99 / lb.), corn on the cob, garden salad, and a can of beans (Bush's Grillin Beans enhanced with bacon and onions). Grandbaby had a tube of squished squash. Summertime, and the livin is easy.......

Steve, your post gave me a big grin!! Happy cooking to you and your girl.

I'm grilling some rib eyes tonight. They are thinner than I would like them to be because we like rare. Any advice on how to get them seared on the outside and rare on the inside without a blow torch?

Steve....how nice your daughter is right upstairs, and that you and she can be cooking partners!

Kay...sear those rib eyes as hot as the grill will get for a minute or two, barely flip, and plate them with the pretty side up.

tenspeed....sounds delicious, and thanks for the video of the fabulous Ella!

Continues to be miserably hot, along with oppressive humidity. Yuck!

We're still "eating down" the freezers, the kitchen one is the first victim, so tonight we had country-fried steak and gravy, mashed taters and leftover squash and onions from yesterday. Lots of iced tea to cool us and some lemon-zucchini bars for dessert.

Your grandson knows what's goin' on......hotter than ever here and I craved pizza so I made a batch of dough this morning before heading out to the deli. It made three small pizza's. One is a Margerita, a mushroom and Serrano ham(I snuck a fresh cayenne pepper from the garden in there and waited for gf's reaction...yeeeooowwww!!!). The third one is anchovies, tomatoes and oregano from the backyard jungle.....Here's a half eaten version. I had to cook one at a time on the stone so we ate as we cooked...
