What's in the pan, Jan? Dinner Sat., 4/12/14

It's in the low 70s and sunny now, so I think a cool dinner is in order I'm going to make potato salad, chicken salad and green salad. Time to get a move on!

What are you having?

We were going out, but TB is once again not feeling well so it is chicken soup at home. I have been out a lot this week so spending some time here together is nice.

My dinner will be going on the grill, Gil.

I went to the store for the $3/lb bacon and picked up some $1.98/bunch asparagus while I was at it. They go so well together
I had wanted wings... even picked up the crumbled blue cheese for the hot sauce I was going to brush them with, but they still don't have any wings in stock. They did have some nicely marbled small rib roasts for $6.99/lb, so I bought a few and cut one into steaks.
A little grilled bread brushed with EVOO, then rubbed with fresh garlic when it's done and I'm good to go.

I'll be grilling some Chinese sausages (pork sausage flavored like Chinese restaurant BBQ spare ribs). Sesame noodles seem like a natural along side so I made that just a little while ago.

Himself will be grilling tube steaks. Having that with canned baked beans and potato salad. That's if I get the salad done - still have a window to go just in the upstairs front. I'm soooo slow today.

We went to the park this afternoon with PAG and her husband. They grilled up the chicken they brought and the asparagus I brought on their mini charcoal grill. They also brought foccacia, mango-habanero cheese and potato salad. It made for the perfect first outdoor meal of the year. We ate around 3ish so the girls and I are just having a light snack before they go to bed (DH is at work).

Dinners a stack, Jack. Stacked enchiladas...corn tortillas layered with my canned roasted tomatillo salsa verde, Monterey Jack cheese, some chopped sweet onions and a bit of leftover shredded chicken.

I had to google tube steaks, a new term to me. Interesting results, lol.

You're a brave one. When I was in high school the term did not refer to any type of food. It took me off guard. I guessed that here it was a silly term for hot dogs. I didn't have the guts to Google it!

I think CG was referring to a hot dog, too - I'm not gonna google it, either! For a minute there I was back in high school.

Tonight's dinner was just scrambled eggs and toast. Still not feeling that great, and I sure am looking forward to a real dinner. Maybe tomorrow.
