Dinner, Friday August 8

Tonight will be grilled boneless chickenbreasts with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, and fresh stings beans from the garden. Leftover birthday cake for dessert

I thinkI might pick a mix of different herbs from the garden to use in a marinade the chicken, the sage and thyme look like they could use a good trimming.

And what is everyone else planning?

Grilled corn on the cob and some country style ribs. I'm thinking of just onion and garlic flavoring, no BBQ sauce, but you never know. Also a cuke and onion salad, or maybe some other stuff, too. You never know

I have a sirloin roast in the fridge I am supposed to cook, haven't decided how yet. It is boneless and I got it from the butcher, it is the same cut he uses to make sirloin steaks from. I was thinking a pan sear and then finishing in the oven, just putting garlic, salt, and pepper on it. I have some Shiraz but not sure how to incorporate that into it. Probably should have marinated it?

Steak n Shake is sounding pretty good right now, LOL.

It's hubbys' birthday today and he's requested pot roast, potatoes, carrots and mushrooms. So that is what is in the crockpot. Also some dinner rolls to sop up the gravy.
I also made him an apple pie as he prefers that to cake.

We're celebrating the opening ceremonies of the Olympics with a pupu platter I picked up from my favorite Chinese restaurant.

I was thinking he was going to cut the roast into steaks and make a milkshake to go along with them. What's wrong with that?

That's not a bad idea.. but too late. I was just feeling lethargic but I got my act together and started it. Sprinkled a nice Montreal Steak rub on it then pan seared in EVOO and garlic. Now it is finishing in the oven. Going to do some roasted potatoes and some broccoli and cheese, salad to start with.
I have no idea if it will turn out good, hope so.

So isn't that a prime rib roast, but you don't have the bones?
Either way, a far cry from sirloin! I'll have the end cut

Had a big basket of tomatoes from the garden, as well as basil,onions,and several red peppers, sooo a nice marinara is simmering with porcini mushrooms added to get rid of them, will put this over some penne, have a nice green salad with more of those tomatoes and garlic parmesan bread and that is it for today..Made some brownies this morning and that is dessert.
