Dinner Sunday, May 25th

I feel like Western Ribs today (looked good in the Sunday flyer this morning) on the grill with some homemade potato salad made with redskins. Have to see what looks good at the grocery today as far as greens to go along with that. Have leftover apple spice cake for dessert.

Hmm..I'm not sure what we'll do today. One of us has to go to the store as we are looking kinda Mother Hubbard-ish...but we are both sick sick sick and maybe it'll be a can of soup!

It's a Memorial Day cookout here...

Tomato mango salsa with baked tortilla chips

3 salads: grilled zucchini on boston lettuce with feta and dried cherries with a fig balsamic glaze; grilled green beans with baby fingerlings with cider vinegar and poppy seeds, and basic cole slaw.

Rubbed chickens and pork ribs with a spicy/tangy bbq sauce on the side.

Bacon topped corn bread.

Dessert is a white cake with berries, cream cheese frosting and triple sec.

Lou and I are drinking coconut rum with pineapple juice, My ex husband and his girlfriend are currently drinking a bottle of Tito's vodka I brought them from New Orleans.

It's beeeeeeeeeyoooooooooootiful outside!

I'm going to roast some asparagus, red onion, red pepper and served them on a bed of romaine hearts with just a splash of olive oil, salt & pepper.

it's still cold and blustery here. love it! dh had to take the flag down off the worlds tallest flag pole [in our front yard] due to wind but I just informed him it 'needs' to go back up for Memorial Day, if it frays, I'll buy him a new one.
He's requesting beef stroganoff with creamy noodles, lots of mushrooms, honey/Lyle's golden syruped carrots, salad, garlic bread. Such a standard dinner but so good.
Orange Dreamsicle cake with orange cream cheese frosting on top a bit different from the one shown here, plus the way I make the cake is using orange soda for the liquid, anything to make it more orange in flavor and I think the bubbles in the soda does something to help it remain light. <It's his favorite and he is mine, so as it shall be, he'll get his cake...silly boy, he got my drift, flag is back up along with the POW/MIA flag attached to it. We're patriots here, GBA

We're going to do a wine-butt chicken and grilled asparagus, with bourbon BBQ sauce left over from last night's ribs for dipping, and leftover southwestern potato salad. Instead of the mousse (ran out of energy), I made a lemon cheesecake yesterday, so we'll have some of that for dessert.

Apple-stuffed pork chops, haricot verts, cinnamon-frosted zucchini bars for dessert.

man, did we eat on sunday.
first, i went to the polish bakery and picked up some rye bread, rolls, and scones.

then we went to the parkway diner for lunch. i had a huge monte cristo and fries. dw had a 3 eggwhite omelete (with mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes), home fries, and we shared a side of canadian bacon. my boy had soup and pasta.

next, we drove into the city, did some shopping in the villiage, then drove up to midtown to a street festival in times square. we had lemonades and chicken shish kebabs.

finally, we went here: Puttanesca, Italian Restaurants in NYC
even with 100,000 restaurants in the city, we always end up going to the same place.

i had the salad with pears, gorgonzola, walnuts, bacon, and arrugula; dw had the mixed greens salad.
my salad was good, but the bacon was overkill. the (absolutely delicious) gorgonzola provided enough salt to go with the pears and toasted walnuts.
dw's plain, organic greens salad in balsamic viniagrette was impressive.


for entrees, i had pappardelle with stewed venison; dw had grilled red snapper with broccoli rabe; my boy had spaghetti and meatballs.

dw's snapper was fantastic! it was a huge piece on a mound of sweet broccoli rabe, with whole, roasted cloves of garlic. not a hint of bitterness in the broccoli rabe.

my venison was ok. there was a weird sourness, as if the venison wasn't so fresh, or too much cheap wine was used in the gravy, and not enough butter to round it out. but the fresh pappardelle made up for it.

the meatballs and spaghetti were very good, the sauce outstanding. but i make better meatballs.

overall, i think we'll go back. probably, the next time we go into the city, lol.
