What's for Dinner Tuesday August 25, 2009?

Wow, no one's eating today...

I'm roasting some cherry tomatoes, sweet peppers, garlic, cauliflower and broccoli. This will be tossed with some buttery garlic shrimp, nestled on a bed of linguine and covered with a blanket of fresh pesto.

If I'm lucky there will be some good bread in the markdown section!

I thought about starting a thread, but I wanted to give others a chance.

Your dinner sounds really good! I LOVE shrimp, especially the way you're fixing it.

I'm boring... hot dogs tonight with french fries and maybe a tossed salad to start things off.

Splurging tonight. Chipotle-crusted pork tenderloin, homemade sweet double-corn bread, steamed green beans, and chilled watermelon to balance out the spiciness of the pork. I can't wait. :)

The pork tenderloin is in a brown sugar brine right now. When it's done it will get a dry rub and will then go on the grill (natural charcoal). The only change I make to the linked recipe is to use 2 tablespoons of chipotle powder instead of 3, and it's spicy enough that way. When we serve this to guests, I cut back on it a bit more unless they are spicy food fans! Thanks for asking. :)
