Dinner for Monday, April 28

Okay, I'll start us off today.

I'm making Jamie Oliver's "Grilled spatchcocked chicken with new potatoes" and roasted sprouts for the veg.

Decided on dessert. I am going to try the cookies from a cake mix that has been a thread on here. The flavor??? Orange cake mix with white chips!

And what is on every one else's menus?

I'm making steak sandwiches with thin-sliced Ny Strips, lettuce, tomato and mayo on toasted grinder rolls. Then I'll roast some red bliss potatoes tossed in olive oil, cumin, salt pepper and garlic for the side. Don't have any dessert tonight.

I was planning on doing boneless chicken thighs tonight. Plain salt and pepper for the border as usual, but for ours I was going to use a moroccan rub I got from a friend. Of course DH just called and said he wasn't feeling well so those thighs just might be turned into chicken soup!

Spaghetti with meatballs, accompanied by homemade Italian buns made by a friend of mine today, a nice Italian lady. I was lucky to get them home intact, they smelled so good. Lucky me!

Buck's at a dinner meeting tonight and there are no leftovers in the fridge. I'm going to top an avocado with a ham/egg salad mixture and have a couple of slices of N.Y. Times bread along with. May have another slice with "real" butter for dessert.

I'm wingin' it!

I made a casserole the other night that I screwed up (meat overdone, veggies the opposite, juice fantastic), so I'm turning it into a soup.... armed with a picture of Ol-blue's ravioli soup on the counter.

I'll be back.......

Grilled Porterhouse (choice) over lump charchoal and sprigs of thyme. My demi sauce mounted with butter. Pan roasted asparagus with red pepper flakes, pignoli and a white wine butter sauce.
