Dinner, Tuesday Aug 19th

I'm starting this thread?

I am so in the mood for goulash and garlic bread tonight! I'm going to take the leftover sausage mixture I made the other night and add some red gravy to it, along with some pasta shells I had left over. And lots of thick sliced garlic bread, some with butter, some with EVOO, all with lots of raw garlic rubbed on it after it's toasted

And you folks?

garlic bread? same here, dh is on this garlic bread kick, can't make enough of it..

pasta salad, roasted potatoes and green beans and garlic bread..oh I see where you gave your method..dh prefers minced raw garlic in warmed butter...you can get more raw garlic that way, rubbing it on toast was not enough!

Well we cheated last night and ended up having a frozen pizza which was rather good. So tonight I believe it will be leftover brisket and/or italian stew. GARLIC bread and what ever else I can dig up!

A large tossed salad with the leftover shrimp from Sunday. I may make a 5 min art baguette to go with it.

Ohhhh goulash sounds really good! Thankfully I have everything I need so I don't have to take a trip to the store.
So...........goulash it is!

I am NOT going to have tomato pie - PERIOD. I guess it will be take-out since I spent too much time on here this morning...ended up with no time for grocery store or cooking and I have to work late. I was REALLY looking forward to a home-cooked meal too

I couldn't resist - today was the last day of Harris Teeter's sale on Alaskan king crab legs for $7.99/lb. I had to go back for two more clusters, so we'll have those, a green salad with fresh garden tomatoes and bruschetta. btw, I made clarified butter, aka ghee, for the first time the other night, for the crab legs. I don't know why I thought it was an involved process - it was very easy.

It's "I dunno" for me, too, since I'm still full from my lunch out. Maybe a bowl of Cheerios.

"Cantonese" style stir fried pork and shiitake mushrooms, with Chinese greens and peppers in simple sauce on the side. And rice, of course.
(Simple sauce is what I call chicken stock, sugar, sesame oil, dash of ginger, dash of red pepper and cornstarch.)
