What's for dinner - Wednesday, August 15th

Hi all! Hot again here. Buck and I are going to have a cold marinated shrimp salad to beat the heat. What's on everyone else's table today?

Grilled chicken breast & some kind of veggies. Low fat! Low carb! Fun!

lamb kebabs, beef kebabs, lemon peppered chicken, southern fried chicken breast strips and Satay sauce for a dip.

I went to the Pick`n`Mix section and helped myself to a load of stuff to save me cooking tonight.

I only get to go out shopping once a month because the wife has banned me, so when I do, I make the best of it :)

In my corner of the world we are in a bit of a cooler swing, weather wise, at the moment....28 Celsius. :) down from the mid to high 30's and low 40's. That would be well into the 100's on the Fahrenheit scale...hot, hot, hot!!!

So because it is 'cooler' I am making jerk pork, corn-on-the-cob with a chili lime butter and potatoes with onions wrapped in bacon, all on the BBQ.

Tonight I am going to make Salad, Filet Mignon, and my special Potatoes.

The Potatoes have a coating on the skin so it is soooo delicious!

I'm still trying to decide what to make for dinner. I've got leftovers galore, but don't want any of those. I'm thinking either some fish tonight or maybe some tortellini. I have to go shop and see what jumps out at me? I'll keep an eye here too and see if anyone has any fabulous ideas that inspire me.

well, I don't know what to call it, but it is the same ingredients as cabbage rolls, but you chop up everything and I'm cooking it stovetop

Also harvested a decent amount of broccoli and haven't decided how to fix that, but we will have it someway. Would normally be having sweet corn, but the broccoli needs eaten more than the corn.

Have a loaf of bread rising, so will have the oven on anyway . Just may put together an impossible pie, since the ovens on

in a bit of a dither myself as to what to make for dinner.
problem is, when dinner the night before has been a total winner, it's hard to match and the hubby gets his expectations all up, meaning, I could fail miserabley.
checking the trusty freezer for some chicken, and if it's there, maybe a concoction as close as I can come to Chinese Chicken salad.

if the fish jumps out at you, buy it, it's fresh.

but if the tortellini jumps out at you...

i bought some nice, thick london broils on sale yesterday, so we'll might have those, grilled - one just s&p, the other in my dry rub.
or if i have time, i also bought a family pack of various cuts of bone-in pork sirloin and loin, and i have a ton of tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, and basil from the garden, so i'll make pork in a garden style sugo di pomodoro.
