Dinner Sunday Oct. 8, 2017 ~ National Pierogi Day

I considered making pierogi from scratch...for a minute. First, I need to find Farmers Cheese.

We'll be having chicken piccata over 'ghetti, sautéed red grapes with almonds, and salad.

What are you serving up today?

Gyros with homemade shwarma (lamb), tzatziki on flat bread instead of pita. I'm about ready to put the shwarma on the spit and cook it over charcoal on the Weber.

I'll take a half order of Piccata, Ragu as well as just a small Gyro please, thank you very much

I'm NOT cooking tonight, YAY!!!

DH is taking us out for Sunday Supper at one of favorite Italian joints.
Mr&Mrs Owner are originally from Italian (I can't remember where off hand),
but they serve handmade pastas, which we adore!
And with all of this talk of Piccata, I don't know if I'll order Chicken or Veal... Probably Veal, `cuz I can't find it in the markets up here in cowboy-ville.

I was told by all of the grocers up here that folks just don't buy it, although I did find place that carries frozen chubs of ground Veal ... meatballs, yay!

Oops, sorry went off track there for a minute... we're going out to eat tonight!

Chicken Parm for DH, why I don't know, I just made this for him for his birthday. I suggested that he order something that he won't get at home (that's what I do), nope! Stick with what you know ... ok then

We shared a small Caesar salad and a basket of house Garlic Bread (the Garlic Knots are far better, note to self) and a glass (or two ) of house wine for the girl (I'm not driving ) ... MMM!
We were too stuffed (we brought home about 1/3 of each of ours entrees) but wanted dessert, Limoncello Cake, take-out please
This is one happy gal, that me tell you!

I tossed some pecan smoked sausage on the grill, finished with some doctored SBR's BBQ sauce. Served on a roll. I had some doctored grocery store deli potato salad on the side.

So basically, I did more heating than cooking tonight.

CD, some days that's better than fussing in the kitchen for hours. Ya gotta pick your battles, right?

s&p, I love your idea of dinner!

***************************

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Tonight in our house, it was the eggs. We had HB eggs on our salads, then moved on to the chicken piccata - FINALLY! - with a side of sauteed grapes with almonds. Himself is finally getting used to the whole wheat pasta. His doctor will thank me.

Guess not, CD.

We had roast bee w/gravy, carrots, potatoes, onions & sweet peas. Rice on the side (or mixed in the gravy if you prefer). Marble loaf cake for dessert.
