Dinner Friday the 13th!

Is it bad luck to cook today?
It seems I already screwed up tonight's dinner at the beginning of the week.
I forgot my boys were staying with my parents this weekend, and took out a 6 lb chicken to thaw on tuesday, rather than the 3 pounder. Smart eh?
So DH, little lego girl and myself will be having a whole lotta beer can chicken and roasted cauliflower.
How's about you? If you're hungry I have plenty of extra.

I think I might just join you on that one Suzi. DD will be at the hospital for dinner, the border goes out and DH eats at work. Beer can chicken and cauliflower sound delish!

What a week, and I'm so glad to see it go..It was way too warm in the beginning, and now that it's nice, I don't want to be at work. (as evidenced by my habitual posting during the day here...)

We're drinking VeraBluetinis tonight, and quite possibly too many of them, at that.

Figs stuffed with garlic and herbed goat cheese
Smoky turkey meatballs with a pineapple and horseradish dipping sauce
New potatoes stuffed with creme fraiche and drizzled with caviar aoili
Comb honey with ricotta salada cheese on wheat toasts
Pretzels - oh how I love those pretzels

I think I will join you two on the Popcorn for supper. I didn't end up getting to go to a movie last night so I was robbed of my "fix". My home made stuff is better anyway....and cheaper too!

So far, all I know is we are having pork chops because that is what I took out of the freezer, LOL. I have stuffing, and fresh green beans so that is no problem. Just not sure how to cook the pork chops. I was thinking of in a casserole dish with onions and maybe some chopped up pears? I have grapes, maybe cooked with them?

Mav - I like to cook the porkchops like that, but go the apple route, with some apple juice or cider in the bottom.

We had meatball & pasta bake tonight.

I usually do that, and lately with sweet potatoes as well, but I have none of either in the house! I do have pears, grapes, oranges, maybe a couple of limes and lemons.
