What's for dinner? Wednesday, 10-14-15

I have no idea yet, just thought I'd start this early.

I need inspiration. Maybe I'll do the Greek salad I didn't get around to making yesterday.

What's everyone having this evening?

Well, I just put a 4+ pound pork belly in the oven to confit with duck fat. It was cut into 2 pieces and brined in separate mixtures for separate preps. BUT, it will be tomorrow before we can eat the pork belly since it can take up to 5+ hours to cook at 215 degrees, plus both pieces need to be weighted down in the fridge overnight to compact the meat. Both are Thomas Keller recipes. One should be really interesting, it gets bruleed and served with a mustard or a similar like condiment to cut the fat/sugar taste as either an appy or as part of a charcuterie plate.

DH is gone for a 10+ hour day today, long trip up north. So since the only other meal we had planned for the week is a pretty intense prep, we decided this morning to have Scram burgers. I'll have to go out in a little while and pick up some buns, maybe even some tater tots.

That's not fair. You should have to have a dinner menu if you're going to put pressure on the rest of us to come up with something.

The burgers we had planned for yesterday will hopefully be done today if we can make it to Costco this afternoon.

Sounds like we're in that same "maybe/if" boat, Andy.

Our dinner will consist of a few must eat items from the frig. Namely some kielbasa, cabbage, hot sausage and a few potatoes from the pantry. Also need to continue with the tomato salads. My counter is overrun with harvested ripe and green tomatoes

Sauteed veggies and chicken tenders in a marinara sauce over penne, with a few cherry tomatoes tossed in at the end. Can anybody translate "cleaning out the fridge" into Italian so I have a name for this?

We're sick of turkey. DH brought back some hot Italian sausage from the Italian market on his recent business trip to Chicago. I uncased it, and am frying it up. So it may be spaghetti tonight.
