Dinner Monday, October 1?

October already?!?!?!

I'm using up some leftover veggies--tomatoes, broccoli and spinach--and making a veggie pizza for dd and me. DH won't be home until after his physical therapy so I'll heat up some leftovers from the weekend for him.

Everything sounds really good so far (well, maybe not the collards). I have a small pork loin roast and some sweet potatoes, maybe green beans. I like the cornbread idea, too. If I can find my glazed apple recipe, I will make that too.

Leftover chinese for Ken and I. Not sure what the girls will get. Maybe grilled cheese. Definitely a "clean out the fridge" night. Now I'm craving biscuits though. I've been reading threads about biscuits and someone just mentioned scones so now I'm in the mood! Would it be too weird to have hot biscuits with leftovers? LOL!

Leftover risotto (shallots, asparagus, mushrooms, peas, parmesan, boursin, flat-leaf parsley) and I'll be fixing some squash, zucchini, and baby eggplant to go with it tonight.

We're having fried grouper sandwiches, from the fish Kim brought home from Florida. I don't think we need anything else, unless I toss some thinly sliced onion rings in a paper bag of seasoned flour, and toss them in the fish grease for a few minutes. I'll serve dill pickles on the side. I wish we had a little slaw, but I don't have the makings, and DH doesn't like it anyway.

I know we're very plebian, but we do like catsup on our fish sandwiches.

tonight it's a mismatch of things...

there will be steamed cauliflower, curried tofu with veggies and chuteny, and pasta with mushroom sauce we may also fry up some parathas that we have in the freezer.

Went to Target at lunch for some odds and ends, and as usual, I couldn’t keep myself from walking by the meat counter. Wow! They had a sale on babyback ribs: 2.99/lb. I thought about them all day and then went by Target after work and picked up two slabs. Then there is the thread here on roasting potatoes that gave me the idea for the sides.

So, grilled babyback ribs (direct over medium-low coals), “shake-and-bake” potatoes, and baked beans.
