What's for Dinner Wednesday July 29th?

dh came home with some neighbors sweet corn last night, so that was immediately put in the pot with the boiling pasta and broccoli......sorry to report that it was gummy and lacking flavor...but that contribution cut into the scheduled dinner...

so its pasta again, just because we can!!!! There have been frequent times in our recent droughts that I could not draw any water to boil pasta. So as long as I have the water, we are eating pasta. And I can't wait on the tomatoes any longer, I'm making my first pasta salad of the season, sans tomatoes, that is heavy on the bell peppers and mozz cheese... Along with some leftover broccoli pesto and pasta

What's happening at your place?

mmmm took some trout fillets out of the freezer this am, and am thinking of steaming them over some Noilly Prat vermouth. I want to see how much of the herbs in the vermouth will translate to the fish. Altho I may add some fresh herb sprigs to the steamer with the fish, and some slivered garlic.

With that, I think some sauteed dandelion greens (for a bit of bitter) and some shredded zucchini sauteed in some evoo.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Help for dinner!

I could use some help! My squash casserole calls for 1/2 cup of sour cream and we don't have that much left. I'm thinking of putting some cottage cheese in the processor, adding some lemon juice and using that. Can something go wrong with this?

you can try! if it gets ucky, just throw it out & puree plain minus the lemon!
or puree 1st, then taste, then take a spoonful & add a drop of lemon, mix with a toothpick, & test!
