What's on your table? Saturday, 8/12/2017

We'll be having chicken and dumplings. Craig is going to make meatballs for a meal next week as well.

No clue. The original plan was for burgers but we've been invited to SO's sister's home for gathering.

I have a whole chicken to deal with for tonight. We almost always have oven beer butt chicken, but I might quarter it and put it on the grill with the smoker box. Green beans with bacon and onion on the side burner sounds good. SC got a cheese/Hatch chili loaf of bread to go with the meal.

Med, do you do fluffy dumplings, or flat tires as Mama called them?

I'm making a pizza tonight. Gonna cheat with premade pizza dough. Have some spaghetti sauce leftovers to use up. Salads on the side.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I'm thawing ground beef. It will be meatloaf or chili.

The tacos I was supposed to make last night... Mexican rice, small green salad and mashed beans as sides... I will have to scramble if I want a dessert...

I came across this recipe for Ziti Al Mulignan at Food.com and it sounded really good. I changed it from Ziti to Penne Rigate because that is what I normally have in the pantry. I found all the ingredients I didn't already have at home at the 99 Only Store yesterday, so I decided to make it tonight with a small salad and garlic toast. It says "Serves 4 - 6" so I will cut the recipe in half so I don't have a ton of leftovers like I did with the Mulignan a la Sicilian. I think it would pair well with any of the Italian reds I bought last week, but I decided on the 2015 Piccini Chianti, mainly because it has a screw cap which I find most convenient when you're not planning on drinking the entire bottle at one sitting. Of course that could still happen, depending on my mood!

I have a package of pre-seasoned baby back ribs. Toss them in the oven and make some shoe string French Fries with steamed buttered broccoli and a couple of slices of radishes and tomato. A reasonably balanced meal. There are only six ribs in the package. Four for Pirate and two for me. Of course this all depends on how Pirate feels. He was sick all night. And he has a fever. So all this planning may have to wait for tomorrow.
