Dinner, Thursday August 30?

My computer is finally up and sort-of working again, so I can finally get to my recipes (they're all saved on the computer in our kitchen which makes life easier until there's a problem with the computer!). I'll be making chicken with a fresh tomato salsa and rice with black beans, garlic, tomatoes, and any herbs from the garden that are ready to be picked.

What else is on the menu tonight?

Breakfast was Ovaltine. Lunch is jambalaya and cornbread, and supper will most likely be another drive-thru salad, unless I carry all 3 bags of kitty litter (50 lbs each) upstairs tonight. Then I'll have to have some real food, like maybe a 1/4 pound hot dog, to replace the burned energy.

yep, its posted at the above DC link. can't wait to make it but have a dentist appointment in 1/2 hour. oh gee yeah!

a london broil [great minds think alike] [but mine's big] has been sitting in Root beer and a melted stick of butter with PD's house seasoning all night. That'll go on the GF later tonight. I'll flip it continuously through the day for proper marrying.
Yams in butter/Lyle's golden syrup/salt and pepper/ginger/cinnamon glazed will be the starch and steamed carrots with butter/brown sugar glaze for the man of my dreams will be the vegetable. He's been asking for it, so he's getting it.

Steaks with a butter/wine sauce (what's that called?), sweet corn on the cob, maybe some rice, too and a lovely salad.

Will be making pork chops ( good ol' shake and bake lol) with some cayenne mixed in for a kick. Brown rice and corn on the cob on the side (or maybe french fries instead of rice). Not exactly healthy but I always eat healthy, so what the heck.

Chilled shrimp and avocado salad on baby spinach. (No, none of the recalled stuff.) Maybe some applesauce.

We went bike riding in the botanical garden, then stopped at a local pizza joint that also has very good Italian dishes. DH had linguine carbonara and I had spaghetti with meatballs - somehow I've developed a craving for meatballs, so we went there so I could get some

Last night we had our favorite Buffalo Chicken Sausage Subs - Buffalo Chicken sausages on toasted split Italian bread with chopped Romaine lettuce, blue cheese dressing, & buffalo wing sauce.

robo, how do you get au jus from meatloaf?

the green beans sound good. i have some bacon that needs to be used up, so i think i'll give that one a go.

last night, i grilled chicken thighs that were marinated in "world harbors" brand mango marinade, and fajita marinade. i managed to eat one before passing out.
