What's for Sunday dinner, May 29th?

i think we're going to be grilling today. i have about 7 small, fresh rainbow trout that i'm trying to decide on how to cook. i may do my fennel, onion, thyme, and balsamic vinegar stuffed grilled trout, or i may try out my new planks and do a cedar plank grilled trout. the trout are kinda small, so i'm leaning towatds the latter. not much to stuff.

do you soak or oil cedar planks for grilling the first time?

what are you cooking/eating this sunday, may 29th, 2011?

I made Thyme Tea Soup for breakfast.

Lunch will be a couple, three thin slices honey ham, topped with pimento cheese on a rye bread slice.

Dinner will be Wild Fried Rice. I cooked up 2 cups of the wild/brown rice blend with chicken stock, celery and bok choy yesterday. I filled two sandwich bags for the freezer and kept one out to make fried rice.

I'll post the recipe if it turns out as good as I think it will.

Going to Grill some Char Sui style pork on the grill and add a batch of Chinese-style green beans.

I've never done it myself but I'm sure you have to soak the planks before grilling.

A quick check reveals at least a 2-hour soak.

Playin' it loose today and all I know is that there'll be barbecued chicken on the grill. Beyond that....? Well, there WILL be key lime pie for dessert.
