Dinner Friday, 2-21-2014 ~ Would your dinner win a gold medal?

I don't know if my meal would get a medal, but I know our taste buds will be victorious. I'm making seared scallops with bacon and Brussels sprouts (cute ones, just for Kayelle and Dawg ). We'll use up rice from earlier in the week. And I'll make kinda bruschetta to go with the salad. This IS all conditional on the idea that we don't lose electrical power tonight. We should be OK. The storms have already moved past.

Anyone else have plans?

Sounds tasty. And yeah, it's kinda hard to cook if the stove doesn't work.

Stirling's off GM-ing a game, so I'm on my own for supper. If I get energetic, it will be beef and barley soup. If not, I'll scrounge.

That sounds tasty, CG.
I just picked up my whole dinner in the grocery store and let my tastebuds do choosing. I picked up some broccoli, then potatoes (which I was out of), then saw some gorgeous beef marrow bones that made it into my basket... then went back for some French bread... and the main course will be snow crab legs.

I don't feel like getting cleaned up to go out, so it may be salads, maybe seared scallops if I can find some (without brussels sprouts, cute or not, CG! )

Nice looking oyster sammy, S&P.

I think we're safe taxy. There was an explosion (no one hurt) in close to Boston. Our guess is that the power company did some immediate transformer and supply station flipping to prevent power outages.


pac, you like my dinner because it includes bacon. You got the marrow bones so you could try out your new marrow spoon, didn't ya?

I'm blowing my diet and ordering a pizza. I'll try and mitigate the damage by eating a large salad first. =0/

I did, CG.
The new spoon was all washed and in the drawer just looking at me everytime I reached for a fork.
No capers. Had to substitute some jarred artichoke hearts I had for a little added flavor to the parsley salad. Bummer. Should be OK, but I can't believe I used my spare jar of capers already.

Off to look at LMB's link. That looks like something I could fall in love with.

I became pacanis tonight and made wings! I get them frozen and already seasoned so it was just dump them in the oven and bake. Salads rounded out the meal. I was originally going to make corn pudding but that kind of didn't happen.

We had Thai take-out. Tom kah is so amazing. So are Thai curries. So good in my belly.

You're Home-made Rolls look GREAT, and so does your food...

How did you make your rolls, if you don't mind me asking. Was looking to make some rolls to do sub sandwiches.

Fried rice. I bought bacon the other day. Leftover grilled chicken made the one nice day earlier this week. Fresh pineapple, onion, scallion, a few chopped broccoli fleurs, grated ginger. Forgot to add frozen peas at the end. Good enough to repeat, and luckily it makes enough for tomorrow too.

Mrs D had to work late so take out was in order. Headed over to Big Chris BBQ and got a brisket sandwich with a side of BBQ baked beans.
