Dinner, Thursday July 31st

Wow, haven't started this thread in awhile!

We are down to a "family" of three again, just me, DH and our border. Tonight DH and I will be busy shopping for the wedding I am catering this Saturday so we will probably eat on the run.

For our border I plan on making one of his favourites - Beef Dip Sandwich on a ciabata bun with carmelized onion, sauted mushrooms, au jus and Caesar on the side.

I have no clue, my pork chops and rice I made up last night turned out so good I can't possibly top myself today!
I have some smoked turkey in the freezer.. I was thinking tetrazzini but I dunno if that would be good with such a strong smoky flavor.

I'm going out on a dinner date tonight, so I'm not quite sure what I will be having, but probably seafood.

potato salad and fresh green beans. I keep pulling some fresh corn, but it is not ready yet, maybe another day or two. I was in Krogers yesterday and they were selling sweet corn; 3 ears for $2.00, I couldn't believe it. We must have a gold mine in our sweet corn, I need to estimate how many ears we have growing out there.

Tonight is leftover rostisserie chicken from yesterday!
Don't know what we'll do with it yet though
Maybe a quesadilla would be nice.

I'm going to cheat today. Frozen pot pies and egg rolls if we are still hungry. I'll make zucchini bread if LPbeier passes on a recipe before dinner time. Yum!

DD's birthday dinner is coming up on 8-10, so I made & froze the raviolis today with ricotta cheese filling, crab & shrimp mousse filling, and surrounded them with fresh semolina and egg pasta. Lots of work, but worth it. DW & me had some for dinner tonight with homemade sauce, garlic toast from my homemade bread and my cinnamon rolls for dessert. I ran short of pasta dough, so I took the remaining seafood stuffing and sauteed it in evoo & butter, then dipped it in Mama's sauce. Yummo!
