Wondering what's for dinner Fri, Nov 15th?

This forum has been sorely lacking in the inspiration department lately... just so ya know

I have no idea.
So let the ideas and dinners pour in...

I'm making an Armenian dish from my childhood called Munti. SO is having a chef's salad.

Well that's certainly inspirational. That sounds pretty good.

Hi Msmofet, nice to see you again! Dinner sounds lovely. Harry, beautiful looking seafood dish as always! Andy, I'll have to look up Munti, not familiar with it and I always like to learn about new (to me) dishes.

No cooking for me tonight. Tired, and been craving a pizza so I'm going to just order from Pizza Factory. I love their thin crust pizzas with artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, spinach, and olive oil. So that's what it'll be.

edited...Andy, just saw that you put the link for Munti in your post - that sounds delish!

Been baking all day and sort of have no desire to actually eat a thing. However...

I've just prepped two really, really thick pork chops for stuffed chops. They promise to be delicious and I can use the already-hot oven. Think I'll bake a sweet potato and steam some green beans. Found some zucchini bread we'll have for dessert.

Harry, looks wonderful!

Katie, with what are you stuffing the chops?

I'm making a variation of Thai-style pork in sweet chili sauce from the Steamy Kitchen cookbook. I don't have chicken but I have pork loin, so will sub that. The recipe also includes bell peppers, onions, fish sauce and soy sauce. I'll serve it over rice.
