Dinner, TGIF, August 15

I have a fillet mignon roast.
Don't know yet what to do with it.
I could bake it until med/rare.
I need help with what to do with it.
Oven roasted pots with rosemary, garlic, parm cheese, salt and pepper.
Green salad with Lyle's Golden Syrup dressing.
Dessert? He's on his own from what's in the freezer.
Iced tea for me, crocktail for him.

What's anyone else planning?

I don't have a clue at this point....maybe time to get with it. Guess I can do a quiche and salad, they don't take that much time. Have some brownies left from the other day, so dessert is taken care of.

We haven't went out to dinner for some time. I think I'm going to see if DH wants to go to our favorite Mexican resturant. "I love their margaritas"

Tonight's the last night home for the college guy. We take him to UVA in the AM. I was going to make one of his faves, my spaghetti. Needed to stop for milk and bread and saw porterhouse steaks on sale for 5.99/lb. Steak is another of his faves so a quick menu change at the store. Got the steaks and will grill them along with sauted shrooms and onions, salad and green beans.

I was planning on chicken tonight but after reading Uncle Bob's post, I'm buying strip steaks. The chicken can wait until tomorrow.

Ooooh, strip steaks.....
I read Uncle Bob's post so fast I thought maybe he was shopping at Home Depot and he said he brought two strippers home with him
Not to rehash an old joke or anything

No idea here yet. Nothing thawed, but when I read about orange roughy... I have one of those and they don't take long to thaw. So maybe.
