I just asked for help with dining ideas in New Orleans tonight for my dinner.
If anyone answers with helpful ideas, I'll go where it sounds like it has the most potential.

After having a wonderful lunch that included lasagne as the main course at an Italian friend's house, have no room for dinner. Perhaps a small summer salad and some fruit will do.

I have some chicken marinating in a ginger sesame marinade, plus I saved some to use as a baste as we grill...Don't use anything a chicken's been sitting in to bath them in
along with the chicken we have several different salads, one is cantaloupe balls, with bacon, avocado,romaine torn into bite sized pieces then dressed with a french dressing, another is just sliced tomatoes from the garden, with red onion rings, toasted pine nuts, and feta cheese with an herb dressing basil,chives,parsley,salt and pepper, evoo, red wine vinegar.. I made a shrimp, crab, scallop salad with cucumbers, snow peas and celery and some sliced green onions with dressing with rice vinegar, peanut oil, grated ginger dry mustard,toasted sesame oil,sugar,sherry..Some of Giada's pancetta biscuits are on the menu and that is dinner..Dessert is another story, my first try at lemon mousse

I was inspired by my beautiful sage growing that I decided to season and brown some chicken breasts in some EVOO that I flavored with garlic/shallot and sage......... I then removed the chicken and made a Sage Butter Cream Sauce in the same pan. It turned out sooooo good. For the side I went out and clipped a varity of fresh herbs (Parsley, Thyme, Marjoram, Sage, Rosemary) and made a dressing out of stale bread and used all those herbs along with other items. We also had seasoned green beans.

Buck's birthday dinner...grilled Angus steaks, sauteed onions with sliced fresh mushrooms, baked potatoes with bacon bits, butter, sour cream, freshly chopped chives, all washed down with a bottle of Killian's Irish Red. Dessert is double lemon cheesecake.
