Not sure. Today's our monthly "date" day, which means we'll search out a new or favorite restaurant for a nice lunch. We usually have a late lunch, so will probably raid the freezer for any leftover meals stored there.

Probably something from my brother's grill. DH will be helping him roof his house while I'll be playing "barber" to my family.

since traffic was bad and i got home late, dw surprised me with grey sole in lemon beurre blanc (recipe from rachael ray's dreizig minuten essen, zwei . hey, has cara been around?), white rice, and steamed broad (hee hee, alix ) beans. the sauce was so tasty and light that my son actually drank some from a small bowl with each mouthful of fish, rice, or beans.

it was deelish. i can post my wife's modified recipe, if anyone wants.

i am blessed with a son that is a good and adventurous eater. i can only imagine the struggle that some of you parents have had with picky eaters, especially if they're sick often. that being said, he devours this since it's buttery and lemony, and easy to chew or swallow.

soooo, tonight will hopefully be sushi. and don't stop brining me raw fish and seaweed until i have webbed toes.

I think we are going to have Swordfish in a Sage Vermouth Cream Sauce. Something new I'm trying.

I'll make some rice pilaf and cook up some frozen mixed veggies from the freezor to go with it.

The recipe original name is Red Snapper in Sage Vermouth Cream Sauce, but it said you can replace the fish with some others.

looking at some chicken salad to go with leftover spinach chicken and parmesan cheese casserole. The spinach recipe said the dish could be eaten hot or cold, so may try cold this evening.

I just had breakfast so I have no idea what I will want for dinner. I may order in or just go through my freezer to see if anything looks good to eat.

I'm in the middle of packing to move ... probably going to "fast food" of some sort ... I'm too hot and sweaty to go in some place ... probably going to be Fish n' Chips and the fried vege platter from a place called Zekes (an icon in Ft Worth) via the drive thru window. Where I'm moving is about 20 miles away ... and there is only one Zekes!

We're having burgers topped with sharp cheddar and roasted Vidalia onion slices from the grill tonight. I still have some nice Black Seeded Simpson lettuce from the garden, and Kim bought a few Roma tomatoes the other day, which will be great for dressing the burgers. I'll have mustard and relish on mine...he'll have Miracle Whip.

I will definetely post the recipe after I try it. I believe I'll be trying it tomorrow night. We decided to order out instead tonight. I'm getting a steak tip salad. Too tired to cook and not feeling 100%.

it was the tuna out of a tuna sandwich, then it was the chicken out of the chicken sandwich, raw cashews and a diet coke, then squeezed in a cup of joe...
