Steak on the grill. I'll make some rice pilaf and we'll have a veggie. Not sure what kind of veggie yet though. I have to use what's in the house to save on money. I have been running down to the store to pick up this or that ect. way too much lately.

Today I brought salad (romaine lettuce, shredded colby and jack cheeses, croutons, and thousand island dressing, each in separate containers) for lunch, so I will be making supper at home tonight. I also have some hulled whole strawberries and red seedless grapes for my daily munching, and another HUGE brownie for either dessert or a mid-afternoon snack.

I have a couple of Omaha Steaks' pork loin chops thawed in the fridge, and I was considering a Cajun style rub, toss them on the gas grill, make red beans and rice in the rice cooker, and stir-fry (my gas grill's side burner gets the wok hot enough!) some brocolli. I still have some brownies left and I want to polish them off so I can make my world famous Chocolate Ecstacy strawberry shortcake while my strawberries are still fresh, so it will be a brownie and a scoop of French vanilla ice cream for dessert.

Greek stuffed chicken breasts. I will either cut a pocket for the filling or roll the breasts up with the filling (feta cheese, chopped walnuts & parsley). Sides to be determined - either spinach fetucinne or parslied/buttered broad egg noodles w s&p, broiled tomatoes, warm buttered rolls, and layered fresh sliced strawberries & vanilla ice cream parfaits.

Not sure what we're having. My dad is coming but is taking the boys out so it will be just me and hubby tonight. I might convince him to go out too with a coupon for Texas Roadhouse or Silver Diner!

Today is our 4th wedding anniversary and since we're not going out to eat I'm making DH a nice meal at home--I put a pot roast in the crock pot first thing this morning and it smells SO good (thanks, Katie! ) and I'll serve it along with red new potatoes and carrots that are cooking with the roast, fresh corn on the cob and green beans from our local farm stand. I offered to make apple crisp for dessert since it's DH's favorite but he said he'd take care of dessert. I think he'll be taking Sofie and me out for ice cream.

Happy Anniversary PABaker!!


I'm going to marinate some Portobello Mushroom Caps and then grill them and serve them on a Kaiser roll with a Mustard/Basil Sauce and Arugula Leaves. For the sides its going to be Fresh Corn Salad and Grilled Peaches.

Because it is hotter than Hades here today, this morning I picked up 2 pounds of extra-large shrimp & had the store steam them for me "extra spicy". Popped them in the fridge, & we'll have them chilled for dinner with lots of good horseradish & lemon spiked cocktail sauce. Doesn't get much easier than that - lol!

We had zuchinni mousaka and a greek salad. I hit the farmers market this weekend and I got a ton of homegrown zuchinni and tomatoes - yum! Of course my husband said "this would be good without the zuchinni in it" !!

I made some Quesadillas with smoked chicken, co-jack and Queso Asadero, with Salsa Verde and sour cream for garnish. It was good!

well....must admit we saw this on the internet -

mr. callie just seasoned flour with some garlic pepper, pepper, a little cajun seasoning. Dipped strips of bacon in buttermilk, then dredged in the flour and deep fried. I made the white cream gravy and added lots of black pepper. You can't believe how GOOD this is

Next time: blt w/chicken fried bacon!!!
